    The National Day Message is a lot more brief.

    The National Day Rally is viewed as a lot more important, and is meant to set the direction for the year. Not that the National Day Message is unimportant (though some may view it as such), but it just doesn't have any details, just broad strokes.

    National Day Rally - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You can compare the 2011 National Day Message to the 2011 National Day Rally and you can see what I mean.

    Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's National Day Message (English)
    Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's National Day Rally 2011 (Speech in English), Sunday, 14 August 2011, at University Cultural Centre, National University of Singapore

    The National Day Rally speech and then the Budget Speech (by the Finance Minister) are the two most important speeches of a year here.

    national day message is when your buddies send you whatsapp, sms or emails. national day rally is watching foreign markets chiong (bull run ) on 9 August while our own markets are closed

    National Day message is the trailer, National Day rally is the film.

    lots of things:

    Rally has 5 letters. Message has 7 letters.

    Rally begins with "R". Message begins with "M"

    to be very honest I would love to see a real "rally" in the elections style where the Prem Binister speaks in Speakers Corner (Hong Lim Park) and throngs of people gather.

    But I guess the restriction on usage of amplification equipment kind of restricts our Dear Leader from doing so...or, no aircon + no seats + no roof = no audience?

    National Day message is:

    "Do your best for Singapore and be proud of your nation."

    National Day rally message is:

    "We are all equal under the sun and breathing the same air."

    They are the same because both are nonsense

    No locals win this year Olympics, only the imports wins.
    There will always be some people who are more equal than others.
