Pinoy ‘FT’ wants to keep Singapore PR as a ‘backup’ for him to go to USA

Are foreigners taking up Singapore PR and citizenship to use them as a springboard for greener pastures elsewhere?
This seems to be the case at least for a pinoy ‘FT’ who posted on a local pinoy forum asking how he can revoke his Singapore PR and withdraw his CPF if he is able to find a job in the United States:
The pinoy ‘FT’ holds an Employment Pass in Singapore and is currently looking for a job in the United States. He is keeping his Singapore PR as a backup in case he fails to find a job there.
Despite the government’s open-door policy to immigrants, it seem that few of them are serious to settle down in Singapore for good with many using Singapore as a platform to migrate elsewhere.
Recent statistics revealed that out of 1,200 Singaporeans who gave up their citizenship each year, 300 are new citizens.
