Gibo on the Constitution:
* * *
Constitutional amendments are a normal part of a country's evolution. Nations that do not respond to change become stagnant and stuck in the past. (Had there been no "cha-cha" in 1899, we would still be called "The Republic of Biak-Na-Bato".) Singapore's constitution has been amended 4 times since independence in 1965 (an average of once every 11 years). The United States constitution has been amended 27 times since independence in 1787 (an average of once every 8 years). Charter change is not a bad thing as long as the proposed changes will move the country forward. We have been trapped in 1987 for too long, and the self-serving disinformation certain opposition camps spread about the meaning of charter change is not helping.
