  1. Pls respect the decision of the people..we should not see just the parties but see the future of our homeland, our singapore.

  2. The news readers looked grumpy, especially the woman who was trying to fake an accent (badly).

    Singaporeans will see a repeat of this jubilation come September 11, 2015.

    The joy will spread into more GRCs and SMCs, finally able to share with more Little Singaporeans. It is time that the Power is returned to the People. It will further lead to the disintegration of the very unfair group representation, which no modern democracy or countries in the developed world, has ever adopted.

    Singapore for Singaporeans.
    Come September 11, 2015, we will decide a future not just for ourselves but for local-born Singaporeans, our children and grandchildren. A home where we can proudly call HOME. Only we can EMPOWER our future.
