Calling Bloggers to Print & Sell political writings to fund Opposition Parites

Mr Gopalan Nair and myself have decided to do it together and I am calling for Singaporean bloggers to follow.

Practically elections needs money. Only the ruling parties are rich.

Political Blogs had helped to change the political landscape and pin down the famiLEE LEEgime in very strong and effective ways. But we think bloggers can actually do more by reaching out to the readers beyond the cyberspace.

When Ass Loong Son talked about the New Media for GE, I already promised to give him more New Media Impacts by printing out from the blogs.

What I can see there are 2 ways to carry out the prints:

  1. As a book
  2. As a PC browser printed hardcopy in binder
The 1st way is offset printing, more rigid but cost effective, the 2nd is digital printing which is fast and flexible put at higher cost.

Don't do any direct financial donation to avoid the filthy famiLEE LEEgime's Political Donation Act.

As a transaction you can LEEgally sell the copies at a low cost to opposition parties, and then they can sell it to the Singaporeans with profit. In this case it is not a donation but business. :-) If you can afford to even sponsor the printing cost, then you can sell to the parties at a token price.

According to my experience during GE, selling @S$5 or @S$10 anything that is politically meaningful will move like hot cakes. Make it obviously printed on the cover that the contents is against famiLEE LEEgime. To sell few hundred copies within a day during GE is very normal.

I will post this message in Sammyboy.Com forum for discussion.
