As Singaporeans, we have recited our pledge thousands of times in our lives. If we do what we pledge to do for Singapore and Singaporeans, this country will never lose its way. If we stand united to build a democratic society based on justice and equality, we can overcome any challenges we face as a people and build a better future.
Let the ideals in our pledge guide us in the choices we make and the path we take. Lets take a step forward to fulfil the dream of our forefathers to achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for the nation. If ever we lose our way, our pledge is our compass that will help us to find our direction.
We are today a undemocratic society with rising inequality. There is increased unhappiness as our income gap push more people into poverty and Singaporeans have to struggle with the rising cost of living. We have a govt that has lost its way as it constructed an undemocratic political system to maintain its dominant power and created inequality with its unbalanced policies. It has lost its moral compass as it pursued economic goals as an end in itself.
Lets do today what we pledge to do all our lives. Lets overcome our fear, our self-interest and our apathy.
Lets do what is right by voting wisely.
