One-liners or Bakit hindi ko sila iboboto

November 2, 2009 3 comments

Let me share brief and shallow reasons why I’m not voting for these people on May 2010:

Loren Legarda – she’s from the media who didn’t do anything for the industry she came from when she was in Senate and she switched from the Admin to the Opposition party when she didn’t get her way.

Manny Villar – because he considered Willie Revillame as a possible VP candidate and is embroiled in the C-5 controversy.

Eddie Villanueva – I don’t want a religious leader to be my president.

Mike Velarde – I don’t want a religious leader to be my president.

Jejomar Binay – nakapalan ako sa mukha nya when he declared himself the “Obama of the Philippines.”

Noli de Castro – He didn’t even prove he was a good VP.

Jamby Madrigal – AYOKO NGA!!!

Richard Gordon – I admire this guy’s work but for some reason, I still won’t vote for him for President.

Nicanor Perlas – sino ka?

Joseph Estrada – he’s had his chance and he blew it big-time. (I don’t want a convicted plunderer as my president.)

Gibo Teodoro – anyone endorsed by Gloria is shit. Sorry.

Mar Roxas – because he’s now Mr. Korina Sanchez

Why I Will Vote in 2010

May 31, 2009 1 comment

There’s something wrong with the kind of democracy we have in this country. My main gripe has always been this: we put the power of the vote on the people’s hands but we let them remain uneducated. We let them make decisions that will affect the nation for all the wrong reasons. But it’s freedom in its most basic form. I can’t argue with that.

Being part of the middle class, I have a lot of complaints about the government. I realize that being part of the middle class means that the government has received a chunk of my salary before I even get my payslip. It means that everytime I shop or eat at a restaurant, I pay something to the government. Pera ko ang nagpapasuweldo sa mga nakaupo sa gobyerno.

With all the distasteful things that’s been happening in our country, I decided to finally do something. I’ve never voted simply because I don’t believe in the system. But I realized that this is the only system we have and I can’t work against it. If I want change to happen, I have to work with it.

I am finally registered to vote. It took me the entire day (and my ID picture SUCKS!) but I did it.

To those who have been watching in the sidelines, take the plunge. The middle class should go out and vote–we’re practically running the country with all the taxes we’re paying anyway.
