With the help of our main stream media, Mitt Romney will win if he were in Singapore.
Mitt Romney is a perfect candidate of the PAP if he were in Singapore. His quotes are so close to the PAP’s governing principle and philosophy. Most likely, in Singapore, he will also not subject to the kinds of scrutiny and criticisms as he has in the USA.
If he were in Singapore, he will win comfortably as the main stream media will not question him about his attitude towards the poor, about the education, income and employment etc. Instead, the MSM will praise him for his ‘big’ sacrifice.
Free press plays the crucial difference. Unfortunately, Mitt Romney will most likely not be elected as the next US President. His American dream seems to be a mission impossible.
But then, who else in Singapore like Mitt Romney will ‘sacrifice’ himself for a betterment of political development here? Again will there any multi-millionaire in Singapore be interested to stand for election in Singapore?
This is why Mitt Romney is born in the wrong place. If he were in Singapore, we welcome foreign talents and multi-millionaires. Foreign born, no problem, you can still stand for election if you are a citizen.
In addition, the PAP will ask the main stream media to help Mitt Romney to promote him despite the following controversies:
Not concerning about the very poor
Like the PAP, Mitt will say there are safety nets for the poor.
“I’m in this race because I care about Americans. I’m not concerned about the very poor — we have a safety net there,” he said. “If it needs repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich — they’re doing just fine. I’m concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling.”
Education: if you can afford
Like Mitt, if you have money you can go overseas for university education.
“I think this is a land of opportunity for every single person, every single citizen of this great nation. And I want to make sure that we keep America a place of opportunity, where everyone has a fair shot. They get as much education as they can afford and with their time they’re able to get and if they have a willingness to work hard and the right values, they ought to be able to provide for their family and have a shot of realizing their dreams.
Most don’t pay income tax but hope for free goods
In Singapore, most people don’t pay personal income tax and they are dependent upon government for health care, housing, transport, and even education.
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.""http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/top-13-quotes-mitt-romneys-leaked-fundraiser-video/story?id=17264969#1
Big sacrifice and low tax rate
Singapore offers one of the lowest personal income taxes in the world to residents and people like Mitt Romney if he joins politics in Singapore, he will be considered as a very big sacrifice.
Mitt Romney paid an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent in 2011, according to a tax return filed on Friday,……Romney's income was $13,696,951 in 2011, and he paid $1,935,708 in taxes. Romney's income for the year was more than 263 times larger than the U.S. median household income of .
Our MSM will further emphasize about his deduction to show that he is making even more sacrifices.
The choice to not take the deduction allowed Romney to inflate his tax rate to 14.1 percent. The difference between his charitable giving of more than $4 million and his claimed deductions of $2.25 million increased his tax bill by several hundred thousand dollars, as he paid taxes he didn't have to on nearly two million dollars.(http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/21/mitt-romney-tax-return_n_1904573.html)
Low productivity, you are fired
People with low education and low productivity should receive low pay if not fired.
Firing peopleIn January, while making a case for why consumers looking for health insurance would benefit from companies competing for their business, Romney expressed his view in a way that he later admitted would "haunt" him on the campaign trail."I like being able to fire people who provide services to me," Romney told the Nashua Chamber of Commerce in New Hampshire.http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012/09/19/romney-speech-blunders.html
Casino – the way to solve problem
Mitt likes betting so he will support the so-called integrated projects in Singapore.
A $10,000 betPrior to winning the Republican nomination in the summer of 2012, Romney took part in a December 2011 debate that included Texas governor and fellow Republican candidate Rick Perry. In a heated exchange, Perry accused Romney of backtracking on a previous statement in which Romney allegedly touted the Massachusetts health-care program he signed as a national model for health care reform.A flustered Romney then made what critics called an outrageous challenge to settle the veracity of Perry's claim."Rick, I'll tell you what: 10,000 bucks. $10,000 bet?" he proposed.Perry declined, responding, "I'm not in the betting business."http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012/09/19/romney-speech-blunders.html
Never understand the difficulties facing jobless people
Like Mitt, the PAP is quite ignorance of problems facing jobless and poor people.
A joke about being jobless
While addressing out-of-work Floridians at a rally in June, Romney attempted a bit of humour: "I should tell my story. I'm also unemployed."
Critics felt this was a bit rich, not to mention disingenuous, coming from a man worth a reported $250 million US.
In Singapore, under the magic hand of the MSM, Mitt Romney will be a person who makes big sacrifice to join the PAP. He is a successful businessman and graduated from Harvard. He cares about the poor, jobless and likes integrated resort projects. Besides having risk experience in investment and betting, he also encourages parents to send their children for education overseas if they can afford.
Of course, Mitt Romney will stress that the government has already have many inclusive safety nets for the poor, for their children’s education, health care, housing, transport and CPF savings.
However, this is a Singapore reality not an American dream. A Mitt similar will win in Singapore but a real Mitt will most likely not be able to realise his American dream in his home country. Blame what – free press!
