Amid the uproar over who is a Malay, there is a theft we must not miss. By inserting a sky-high money criterium (candidates must have been a CEO of an organisation valued at S$500 million or more), the PAPists have by law disqualified all private sector Malays, as well as almost all private sector non-Malays, from being eligible to run for president.
This is a theft of the peasants' right to run for president. Singaporeans have been so brainwashed that as soon as the PAPists mention "meritocracy" they reflexively allow the PAPists to introduce a sky-high money criterium (how many non-PAPists control S$500 million or more?).
The PAPists have by law created two classes of citizens: the first class rich cronies who can run for president, and the fourth class peasants who cannot. And a special class of civil servant or MPs or ex-MPs can run.
This is the same condition that caused rebellions and revolutions all over the world throughout history.
As Halimah has proven, you don't need to know anything about running a S$500 million company to be president. She qualified based on the loophole that she is a top civil servant.
The money criterium must be abolished, and the right of peasants to run for elected president retored. What is stolen must be given back.
I think the $500 million money criterion is even worse than the race criterion (which is bad enough), because the money criterion disqualifies far more people than the race criterion. The race criterion is if a race do not have a President for 5 terms, then the next President must be from that race.
Imagine there us no money criterion, then even if the presidency is reserved for Malays, hundreds of thousands of them can still run, and we can have some real choice.
The money criterion effectively reserves the election to PAPists and their cronies, and relegates more than 99.99% of Singaporeans to fouth class citizenship.
Years ago, LKY said that the number of Singaporeans good enough to run Singapore could fit into a jumbo jet. Now, there appears even fewer. The number of Singaporeans who control $500 million probably will occupy only the first class section of a jumbo.
Actually, as the president basically does nothing, it would be a waste to have a very talented president. An averagely capable person would do. More important is the president must have the courage to say no to the govt. Courage and empathy are more important than talent in the president.
PAPists want to appoint their person to be president, yet want to pretend that the president should be elected. So we have this shameless wayang that is a joke. Ah Loong is like a king parading without clothes, and he thinks everybody doesn't notice.

According to people, they said that Halimah was the last person to submit her application for the president-elect post.
She obviously knew or was told that other candidates who collected/submitted their application had backgrounds will not be met for acceptance by the election.
She was convinced she will be the walkover president as the other candidates will not be accepted under its rules of eligibility.
If LKY around..I don't think she won't even come close to this presidential election..
Cos LKY knew the president seat is only meant for those who got class ( of his own n wit substances )..
Getting her as President is like choosing a person from jln eunos or geylang area..
Wat to do..we got this ah siao Kia n his useless papist to allow this to happen.
Yes it's quite true..a president must hv substance..cannot be just a " yes man"
A president is just similar to a finance minister..has it's obligation to take care of the nation wealth..integrity n honesty must cone wit it..
So usually ppl tat hv this sort of quality are those wit good background n needless to say..he or his family are those influential families in SG society..cannot be one who is associate with geylang community.
Take for example. The former fi ance minister Richard Hu..who was hand picked by LKY ...can say he doesn't need the mio $ salary .cos he is damn rich..staying in a bid landed property at Holland road area..
U tell me..who would just resigned f a finance minister post? ..not many u find..cos a finance minister post is a very prestigious position..all legal tender notes ( currency) were signed by him.. cannot be an ah long guy to be a finance minister wat?
Richard Hu can just resigned..it's nothing to him....it's not that he is sick or wat?
I believe the reason for his resignation is due...he saw the behavior of LKY's son.. slapping danaballan..n Richard Hu knew tat sooner or later..ah siao Kia will takrover as PM.. harloooo Richard Hu wealth.." chiak buay Liao" la ..so why must he get involved with unruly n complicated ppl.no trouble..wat for find trouble!
From wat I see..the reason for ah siao Kia to hv halimah as the next SG president is just to please our neighbouring countries..to show tat..ok we Sg would like to go along wit yr ala ala ecstasy..cos we SG is only a red tiny dot..n we are very scared..even wit the US base in changi is not enough.. we little red dot need to pls n accommodate everybody..
If u ala ala buggers come n try to disturb us..we will send halimah..our president.. to negotiate wit u fanatics buggers..can?
If LKY is still around..I don't think she will be the next President..
Cos to be a president of a developed country like sg..a president must hv a certain " class" of its own.
Abt former president Devan Nair..he has his own class..a smart and capable writer..same as those smart apuneh.. President Tony Tan..he comes from a family wit enormous banking background..some standing in our SG society. Even our former finance minister Richard Hu..also another rich family background..
Cos LKY himself has his own class.. n he believe ppl who hold hi position must Oso wit certain class...of their own. Wat does halimah hv in her?..geylang or eunos class?
I believe on why ah siao Kia or rest of those " chiak Liao bee" papist choose halimah..1) cos she is a " yes sir" person..2) she is the discipline type. Very kiasu type. 3) can easily control her..cos she know who she got to be beholden to who..4) to pls our neighbouring ala ala countries...cos the currency lot of papist..they simply got no substances in them.
Current papist leaders changing the rules on EP was because they think by appointing a malay as president..is some sort appeasing our ala ala neighbouring countries..by sending a message to them saying..'u see..we should is neutral country even yr ala ala ppl stand a chance to be our president.. the other possibility is. Our current bunch if papist leaders..all got no spine n guts as being leader..all scared scared la. Cant blame them la.they simply got no character at all
If the those bunch of papist leaders believe by putting halimah a Muslim just to pls or show to our ala Ala neighbour..to pls them..why not try get an IS IS gut or Hamas guy to be our president. This way our neighbouring could tries won't dare to take negative thing abt us..hehehe
Firstly..since they ( papist) got nothing to offer..by being more diplomatic or having some kind of person2person friendship binding..our papist has only this to show.. secondly, seeing how world events taking place done by those ala ala militants..so our kwai kwai leaders telling themselves..better don't play play wit all these crazy ppl"..they ( crazy ala ala ppl) don't step on us.. considered as blessing already la.."". Hehehe..
Alamak..we sgian look forward to have leader like President Duterte who got guts to bend the rules..if needed.. cos good leader is abt dare to bend the rules for the betterment to their communities in the long term. One must appreciate such leader like Duterte cos what he his doing..he is putting his life at stake. Anytime he could be killed by hired gunman..He did it becos if his love for his country..harlooooo he can just be like other previous presidents..just shake leg n collect salary n enjoying the privilege accorded to the president..n can sleep well every night..
We sgian urgently need strong leader like Duterte but not going for a killing spree ( on drug ppl or undesirable element) but to prime our economy n provide inspiration to up n coming young biz ppl..
