Manifesto Against Political Corruption

I pondered for choices of title for this post between these words Corruption; Self-Enrichment; Graft. This agenda in my Manifesto for Reform is against all such abuse of power, particularly Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE LEEgime's LEEgalized Corruption and self-enrichment as well as LEEgalized Plundering and Graft.

The masterpiece of famiLEE LEEgime is their LEEgalized Graft of S$2.6 billion of state fund via so called Progress Package, and then distributed Nationwide just only 5 days before polling day of General Election 2006 to conduct LEEgalized vote buying.

In the past 42 years of famiLEE LEEgime there are countless corruption crimes that are mostly LEEgalized. These crimes are progressively more serious and more frequently from the beginning towards the end of the 42 years of famiLEE LEEgime.

Lee Kuan Yew's policy officially resorted to Opened and LEEgalized Graft and Corruption via Ministerial Salaries after the notorious ministerial corruption of Tay Chiang Wan - Minister of National Development. The famiLEE LEEgime ministers hold the longest and highest still unbreakable record of salaries golbally. The famiLEE further propagated their corrupt philosophy of LEEgalized graft worldwide via LEEgime propaganda machines and publications.

Singaporean spirit of national devotion; contribution; patriotism and sacrifice by political leadership had been totally contorted and insulted if not completely ruined by corrupt greedy political culture of famiLEE LEEgime. This is a crime initiated by Lee Kuan Yew and thoroughly followed by his Loong son & famiLEE members and cronies installed within the paramount of Singapore's pyramid of power.

In my later relevant portions of my Manifesto I will state how I propose to abolish some mandatory Death Penalties, but for Political Corruption, I propose stern Death Penalty applicable to officers as high as Rep of Singapore President, down to the lowest briber. However it is not mandatory Death Sentence but the maximum penalty must include death for political corruption. The policy must be more stringent toward higher officers than lower peasants, that the penalty face by a corrupted officer is proportional to not just the crime committed but the level of public trust pegged to to the corrupt officer's appointment.

Law must be more harsh towards official culprits than common citizens. Wtih the famiLEE LEEgime they practice the opposite policy that officers enjoys sentencing discounts when they are found guilty, based on famiLEE LEEgime's corrupt philosophy that their own corrupt officials are entitled to offset their past contributions against their own crimes. I insist that is totally wrong, and must be completely reversed, that officers holding their power & privilege must coexist with proportional responsibilities and liabilities. Abuser of power and privilege must be severely punished to set example. The famiLEE LEEgime is a large collusion of LEEgalized corrupts, covering each other and enjoys evasion from punishment even when exposed. They grant themselves unbelievable discounts from justice, this had been repeatedly demonstrated in Singapore's judiciary history and courtroom saga of National Kidney Foundation identifies with this corrupt political culture.

NKF's T T Durai paid himself a PEANUT annual salary of S$600,000 out of public charity donations. This totally paralleled Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE LEEgime's ministerial salaries except that ministers salaries are multiple times higher than Durai, and they are tax payers' money instead of donations. Tax is a compulsory public payment while donations are voluntary, abuse / misuse of tax payers' fund is more serious as a state offense, while abuse / misuse of donations is more serious as a moral offense while both are equally dishonest.

My COUNTER Manifesto against LKY famiLEE LEEgime's million dollar ministerial salary policy stress that ministers are elected political appointments instead of a professional appointments. The greatest difference is that only citizens are entitled to take part in election while professionals can be hired from ANY other countries, additionally and more importantly, it shouldn't be the performance the matching renumeration that matters with ministers, but their DEVOTIONS; DEDICATIONS; PATRIOTISM; INTEGRITY; POLITICAL MANIFESTO; POLITICAL RESOLVE; ELECTION PROMISE & COMMITMENTS that really matters and decides weather they get their appointment / office or not. The corrupted famiLEE LEEgime lives in a sick culture of greed and wealth, their ministers are selected and employed like directors for LEEgime INC, besides practically being feudal vassals or seigneur of famiLEE LEEgime under emperor Lee, assigned to be barons in various GRCs divided by the famiLEE Royals.

To reflect against famiLEE LEEgime by contrast, my Manifesto calls for ministers & presidents of Rep of Singapore to be appointed completely without salary, not even a token. They appointment and official power / privilege should only come with strict liabilities and requirements in respect of Transparency and Accountability. The state should provide for the officers' and their family's needs in material and facilities and security but not financially.

Ministers and Presidents must only serve under the constitutional limitation for not exceeding a maximum allowed number of years or terms, this length must be reasonable and comparable with other democratically developed nations.

To put in more ironical angle, particularly against famiLEE LEEgime's rotten filthy tactic of abusing bankruptcy to disqualify political opponents, I include in my Manifesto a measure of Aniti-Corruption Insolvency. In that, all Rep of Singapore Ministers and Presidents before taking oath to office after being elected are to first mandatory declare their assets; equities; and directorship in all private businesses, and discharge themselves from these private business appointments as well as have their personal assets ; liabilities or equities completely handed over to the custody of the state's Official Assignee, and the custody remains as long as the Minister / President still holds office. And the assets etc to be returned after the Minister / President is discharged from their public office. This applies essentially to elected political appointments, as a stern measure to prevent corruption, and assure absolutely that a President or Minister's asset / equity level remains the same immediately before and after their holding to official appointments and they are unable to self-enrich during their terms of power.

Straight measures of monitoring and scrutiny must be established to monitor the close friends and family members of key political appointees as effective form of Anti-Corruption measures.

The maximum penalty for graft or corruption or abuse of power have to be death by state execution.

These features of my Manifesto Against Political Corruption are tailored to highlight by contrast the frauds and falsehood of famiLEE LEEgime's LEEgalized Graft & Corruption policies. However I would not insist to get EXACT implementation for the actual reform, however the principles and logics sets a datum as well as pointers towards the faults and desired corrections for the reform.

This portion of Manifesto is based on a clear principle that Ministers and Presidents as well as similar politically elected appointments must NEVER BECOME AN OPPORTUNITY OF SELF-ENRICHMENT, and rather must actually be only an opportunity FOR CONTRIBUTION; TO SERVE SINGAPORE BY DEVOTION & PATRIOTISM; TO MAKE SACRIFICE INSTEAD OF GAIN. These appointment must NEVER be for any one to hold on for long term, to pass to own family members or children or cronies, instead they are appointments that holders must within their short terms contribute and server truthfully and effectively before passing these positions to others new comers who can take turns to contribute and serve our nation. These positions must NOT share the same nature as professional jobs or corporate directorships or high salary earning career opportunities.

While non-miniterial executives and coperate directors can be hired via headhunter or employment advertisments based strickly on principle of business, their ability to bring about business success and results justify their remunarations economically, Ministerial and Presidential candidates ask for their mandates through election campaigns, states their political causes / manifesto and ideas and values, asking fellow citizens to accept all that via voting on their ballots, Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE LEEgime got these all MIXED UP!

They ran their famiLEE LEEgime like a family business and treated ministers and presidents as their famiLEE employees, just like traditional Ah Beng family business concept, except that tax payers foot the payrolls and these Ah Beng minister / president employees are paid the WORLD'S HIGHGEST SALARIES. Any surprise? No, since their employee must be BEST IN SGP JB AND BATAM! And their result are WORLD CLASS and their LEEgime is FIRST WORLD!

Today most of the Singaporean peasants and many from the world outside Singapore can see through that Lee Kuan Yew's famiLEE business ran into much failures and troubles. They had also neglected that Singaporean Citizens are supposed to be the only ture shareholders instead of the famiLEE, and all shareholders had been betrayed; misled; hoodwinked; and exploited.

Lee Kuan Yew's policy is a failure, and a nation must never be ran like a business. Running a nation like famiLEE business is the worst policy, a childish and naive approach based on greed and selfishness as well as hunger for power. Singaporeans must learn this painful lesson and share this bad experience with the other people worldwide.

What Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE did in prevention of their LEEgime feudal vassals and barons' corruption scandals is essentially a ONE TIME change which LEEgalized ALL these corruptions ONCE AND FOR ALL, via LEEgally ENRICHING their vassals and barons with obscene amount of tax payers' monies. My Manifesto insist that strategy itself to be the ugliest corruption crime ever. When Lee Kuan Yew found no way to prevent crimes within his filthy greedy LEEgime, he just LEEgalized all the fulfillment of wealth exploitation and filthy greed to the extend of an unbreakable World Record in human civilization's entire history. I want to call this the Lee Kuan Yew Salary Record. In my own view Political Corruption can never be taken care of by any sort of policy ONCE AND FOR ALL. The state have to have a constantly maintained system of scrutiny; exposure; discovery; eradication and punishment against corruptions. There must be effective measures to protect and reward Whistle Blowers; Witnesses; and providence of help to the Victims of Corruption. Any type of political system in any society will never see the end of Corruption Culprits and greedy self-enriching officers exploiting loopholes they can find, it is totally wrong to hope to achieve any way to cover this defect by a permanent solution, it is STUPID and SINFUL to solve that by LEEgalizing Graft and Corruption, trying to save political scandals like Tay Chiang Wan, as well as saving the 24X265 efforts to monitor and expose and punish corrupts.

Manifesto Against Political Monopoly

First agenda I would like to publish in my Manifesto for Reform is agenda against MONOPOLY, particularly LONG TERM POLITICAL MONOPOLY, and most particularly against such a monopoly by a single family.

The 42 years monopoly of political power by Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE must be firmly abolished by citizens' power, and the abolishment itself to set example for long term future prevention of similar monopoly. The safeguard must be
firmly installed via clear and resolute clauses in the Rep of Singapore Constitution clauses. Lessons must be learn by future Singaporeans from clearly exposed postmortem studies of ugly famiLEE LEEgime including corruption and failures. Any future attempt to establish a political monopoly like Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE must be most severely opposed and punished.

This Manifesto seeks the following measures against Political Monopoly:

  • Constitutional restriction against family relations between key state office appointment holders. Restriction must be in terms of concurrency; consecutiveness; and limitation of maximum period of appointment. Arbitrarily preventing nepotism and cronyism.

  • Prevention must be provided via Constitution against father to son succession of power, or similar monarchy hereditary continuation of political power between family or monetary relations.

  • Constitution must safeguard against foul plays in the aspect of political stunts such as proxy or puppet officers e.g. famiLEE LEEgime's Presidents.

  • Constitutional restriction must also be set against single party dominance, via mechanism of mandatory by-election in the event the result of a general election gave any party an un-proportionally high ratio of seats the parliament exceeding a constitutionally set limit. This is aimed to prevent a future scenario of 82-2 seat dominance like famiLEE LEEgime's PAP.

  • Constitutional mechanism to prevent a military junta. famiLEE LEEgime is indeed a shadow of a military junta consisting of SAF senior officers and generals. Although the LEEgime already abolished their emphasis of military ranks used in conjunction of civilian official titles, but they had for a long period adopted such policy. With or without the emphasis of military ranks the famiLEE LEEgime parliament and cabinet is still indeed full of SAF senior officers and generals in particular LKY's Loong Son. Constitution must require a significant time gap in terms of minimum years between any officer's holding of high military / security forces appointment to hold key civilian offices subsequently or concurrently.

  • The nation must nurture a healthy culture against political monopoly and preserve it as a national heritage, citing the reform exercise against Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE LEEgime as example and guidance for future Singapore. It must be a form of knowledge between pride vs shame; right vs wrong; glory vs stigma, for future citizens.

  • Exposure of famiLEE LEEgime falsehood and filths must go worldwide and recorded down the history. Singapore's dark history of famiLEE LEEgime must be offered as a lesson to other people and international community. This is to be a form of antidote against poisonous Lee Kuan Yew Model or LKY styled Singapore Political System, intoxicating greedy copycat dictators such as Thaksin Shinawatra of Thailand typically.

  • Future Singaporeans must offer all forms of assistance possible on top of our experience overcoming totalitarian monopoly regimes to people of other countries fighting against authoritarians, in particular those people who suffers under LKY's copycat dictators.

  • The spirit of reform; restoration of justice; preservation of civil rights and freedom; confronting against dictatorship etc, are to be treasured as our national cultural assets, to last for generations of Singaporeans.
The essence of this portion of Manifesto is aimed to prevent a future repeatition of Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE LEEgime in Rep of Singapore, we also to contribute our efforts to help other people internationally to prevent themselves from suffering from regime that mimics famiLEE LEEgime.

The Objective and Time Frame

Republic of Singapore and been since separation from Malaya in 1965 until present 2006 essentially ruled by one single famiLEE superimposed on the single party governance. Lee Kuan Yew passing throne to his son, and the control of key state assets to his daughter in-law, creating effectively a famiLEE LEEgime, if this is not put to stop LEE's Dynasty will still dictate the future of our 4 million people republic under their single famiLEE rule for yet another 42 years.

The First and Prime Objective of my Manifesto is to put a stop to this famiLEE LEEgime via the power of citizens. This I insist must be the very first step to all other reforms, because this is the only real step that will truly enable all other subsequent steps and directions of reforms. Practically all ideas and desires and necessities of reforms are otherwise the furthest from fulfillment and all other efforts will be waste of time as long as the famiLEE LEEgime is still in control from the peak of power pyramid.

So far in the past 42 years, only changes that suits the famiLEE LEEgime will take place in Singapore including the appointment or so called elections of Presidents or Ministers or Chief Justice or Commanders of Forces. The media; work unions; people's associations; everything under the sun on this island are not free and independent and only grows in the famiLEE's favor. Anything growing otherwise will be destroyed with the abuse of every state machineries conveniently available to famiLEE.

famiLEE must be uprooted and held accountable in firmer extend than what had Macos; Suharto and Thug-Sin had been.

The PAP must cease to be monopoly, this would practically be simultaneous with the uprooting of famiLEE, but I don't emphasize the PAP party as much as famiLEE itself to be prime focus of reform. PAP party is under the control of famiLEE. I hope this party will find it's own direction after famiLEE LEEgime and compete fairly in multi-party rotation politics like most other developed countries and democracies. Singaporeans removing famiLEE will do PAP party a favor just as meaningful as giving the same liberty to our Republic.

The present Thai military interim govt is dissolving Thug-Sin's Thai Rak Thai party. Although the PAP is even more significantly monopolized and infused in our national structure - almost same as communist regimes, in this Manifesto I do not specify the demolition of PAP party as the milestone of reform. The reason is Singapore being so small we have to salvage and recycle any usable resources for our future, and completely destroying PAP party is not preferred. Like we recycled NE-water we may need to recycle portions of NE-PAP :-). Thai Rak Thai is a relatively new party in Thai Kingdom, and the Thai people are in more affordable position to see the total rid of Thug-Sin's party, compared with Singaporean with PAP party.

Unlike communist regimes, PAP party does not monitor famiLEE LEEgime cabinet nor oversee famiLEE LEEgime officers. famiLEE runs the government by the father & son and relatives in the cabinet bypassing the ruling party, this is the part that is unlike the communist regimes. In PRC China for example, communist party oversee military; foreign relation; ideology; corruption; economic; etc key issues. PAP only bears the empty status of ruling party, it does not really have control over the LEEgime in any significant aspect. PAP party is only the vehicle that is used to legitimize famiLEE LEEgime via election process. Even the party's PMs don't really have power to vote according to their wish or the voters they represent in the LEEgime rubber-stamp parliament.

The Republic of Singapore Constitution needs some significant amendments, this is an objective and milestone of my Manifesto. Legislations customized for famiLEE LEEgime's corrupted rule must be abolished, amended and fresh legislations need to be made to fill up some holes. This is the duty of entire republic's citizenship not just the interim or replacement governments.

To nurture a refreshed post-LEEgime republic, sufficiently long interim period must follow the end of famiLEE LEEgime, under freedom of media and citizen assemblies, political campaigns and rallies can be held peacefully and orderly before a truly free and fair election to be held for the 1st post LEEgime government. State forces must serve the nation independent of party favoritisms, if they fail to do so, our national cost of reform will be much higher and assistance of United Nation forces will become crucial.

It would be naive to expect the first post LEEgime governments to be rock steady or high performance. However it wouldn't be total chaos or doomsday either. Citizens must have faith and courage as well as willing to pay a reasonable price for the change. Learning and patience during the transition is absolutely necessary and people of other nations had all been through their similar experiences of changes before they see improvements and better futures.

The famiLEE LEEgime had become desperately corrupt in this ending portion of their life cycle. It is inevitable that they will leave huge nasty surprises for our people. These would be the heavy burdens for any post-LEEgime government as well as the people, the sooner we face and resolve these the better it is for the future Singapore, I don't see any practical way to avoid this, because even if this country is to collapse in the hands of famiLEE LEEgime our people are still to face the same accounts or worst.

The meaningful time to begin is NOW while both Lee Kuan Yew and his son Loong are together in the cabinet, in this illegitimate government sworn in after a nationwide vote buying election. Their illicit corrupted election legitimized our uprooting of their famiLEE LEEgime.

We must not wait any further, we must not allow them to continue to rule in their corrupted status. The surfacing of NKF and Shin Corp etc filthy scandals are clear signs of their end coming soon. Lee Kuan Yew must be taken down by Singaporean people while he is still clutching to his final phase of power. He must be held accountable for many things done corruptly and unjustly in the past decades. He must be taken to task before he becomes physically or mentally unfit.

There is much more meanings than vengeance or politics in this. The original designer and engineer of this national machine better not be disabled or deceased as we reform / renovate and rebuild Republic of Singapore. Whatever we can dig out from his corrupted DataBank may help us prevent some waste of time and efforts :-) So don't miss the deadline to capture some data, bearing in mind that is corrupted.

Lee Kuan Yew's Loong Son is very weak and useless, it would look like an easier time frame after his dad is gone to start reforming Singapore. But any reformist planing on that is also fundamentally weak and unconfident, opportunistic and passive, not a true reformist but just gatherer awaiting under a tree for falling durians. Singapore will have to go through more and worst losses under the hands of famiLEE worst than SuZhou; Optus & Shin Corp, if we sit by and wait further.

Asia is rapidly reforming and transforming, we can not waste time and let our Singapore rot further in the hands of famiLEE. We are going to have a hard time catching up with renewed and reformed Asia competitions from here we are already lagging behind under this corrupted and incompetent famiLEE LEEgime.

The longer we remain in the hands of famiLEE in their desperate struggle to prolong LEEgime the more dangerous gamble they are going to bet entire Singapore into. Lee Kuan Yew counting on Bush's Iraq & Afghan wars; casinos; collaborated huge GIC Temasek funds with corrupted Thug-Sin family etc are the warnings, this is not the last thing they will try after repeated failures, if Singaporeans don't stop them, we can surely expect more. By the time they finally gave up and wash hands and absconded like their good friend Thug-Sin, Singaporeans will find very little to salvage.

Lee Kuan Yew's Yang son quited from Singtel after 8 billion dollars written off from his Optus adventure alone. I am not implying that is the final sum of our total lost, bleeding has yet stop and that is not the only wound. By the time each of the famiLEE members gave up and quit, what would be left for Singaporeans? Debts awaiting payment is one thing for sure!

It is the objective of my Manifesto for Reform to steer Singapore towards a new path after 42 years of Lee Kuan Yew, particularly his famiLEE LEEgime which is signified by his son taking over from Goh Chok Tong and daughter in-law heading GIC Temasek. Singapore must break free from famiLEE LEEgime. Freeing Singapore from a one-party monopoly is a closely coupled step with freeing the state from a single famiLEE control.

For a first time after this will Singaporean people then able to really decide anything for this country without the control of the LEE family.

The rest of my Manifesto will follow this post as well as editing and amendments made to this blog. It will cover various selected aspects of nation's affairs, part by part.
