How precious my Vote is?

May 2007 is fast approaching – will just means ‘Election’ is near; and I can’t tell if suffrage will heal the illness of my country cos "Not a man in the entire universe hasn’t heard how the politics in my country gross." They said ‘we can help build a new Philippines’ or even ‘Simple lang, pero Rock! (Simple but Rock)', etcetera and etcetera.

Genuine Opposition versus Team Unity is the main partylist to choose from. Campaign Ads are everywhere – messing up the streets, clean walls and views. Ads in many sizes and different qualities rampantly hanging and posted to wherever ‘those assigned people’ lead them. No matter how the places are clean, if private or public – as long as it is a perfect spot then expect a bunch of campaign ads that makes their own ads community.

If you tour around the city, every DLPC posts are the main habitat of these exasperating posters and streamers. Even the local election candidates spent too much buying and posting those ‘cheap’ campaign ads – which more or less have a week life given a rain and shine weather.

Slogan of these partylists is never an 'eye catcher' to me. They even irritates me – cos the fact that there are only 4 senators fixed on my list and I can’t tell if I can add more. I’ve been asking some friends who they’ll cast their votes and they’ll just ask me in return who’s mine? Not even one of my friends is ready to vote cos much of the candidates are trashes – just pieces of shit and garbage. Yes, condemn me if I tell you this and I am not afraid if one of those ‘people’ got pissed with what I’ve said. This is my will – a free will to state my mind and to express myself through words.

Now, who’s got my vote – Genuine Opposition or Team Unity? Three of my votes came from the Genuine Opposition and one from the Independent Body; and none from Team Unity. I won’t name names but it’s sad to know that I can only choose 4 among ‘those’ people. I kept asking myself ‘Why?’ – maybe because these people presented themselves to the public with all the as-if 's, talks shit about attaining and achieving certain things that obviously they can’t do, made promises as if they’re all Gods and leaves false hopes to numbers of my ignorant and illiterate brothers and sisters.

My time is running out and I still can’t fully book my senatorial
candidates and my local government officials. Can my vote change a thing? Will my vote brings a new Philippines? Should I really vote with just 4 people on the list? Would this make a better place? Could it stop poverty? Etcetera and etcetera --- too many questions that I can’t even answer.

Is my vote precious to the people, to the society and to the country? For some reasons I get a glimpse of my answers: To the people – may be and may be not – cos people just didn’t care at all. Large percentage of the Filipino people didn’t bother to think about it. To the society, if I cast my vote to the right people then it is. To the country, I hope. Above all, my vote is precious to the people running for the seat!

One vote can make a difference – it is then precious; and for my beloved Philippines, i will vote.

    i go for the genuine opposition too... and although the prospect of senators and congressmen arguing continuously in the hall is to be realized soon, it is better to put in more anti-admin officials to watch gloria and her cronies' steps toward manipulating the people and the constitution. i hope the people would put on their guard against another scandalous and illegitimate election. i thnk the present administration would do everything within their power to ensure that they put their people in the position. u know why? because this year's election is very crucial for gloria and the admin. if the admin candidates lose, then the charter change which gloria is pushing would not be realized... and she has to change the constitution, that is for her to stay in power, have a little more time for her advisers to devise plans that would free her of public indignation and even more time to settle her cases before they are even heard of in the court and in the news.

    on the other hand, if the GO wins, then we hope they continue to be against the reigning regime and continue to say no to charter change. there are a lot of anti-filipino premises in the proposed constitutional change ranging from education to healthcare, housing, environment and natural resources management, livelihood, and more. these are anti-filipino...kulang na lang ibenta na ang mga pinoy abroad to be the modern slaves of other nations. kulang na lang ipa-rape na ang mga resources ng pilipinas para lang maka-encourage ng mga investors to come to the country.

    i really wish we vote wisely this time.

    i really hope kung kinsa man ang mudaog karon na election kay buhaton nila ang mga promises nila. basi parehas lang gihapon. wala gyud pagbago kung walay mag bago. basi maayo lang na sila karon kay election man. pero pag naka lingkod na kay cge na away. murag kalimot na sa ilahang gi promise. i hope kung GO ang mudaog dili nila i prioritize ang pag panaog kay GMA. kay kung kana ang mahitabo klaro na kaayo na pangsarili lang ang gina-isip nila. i am not a PRO GMA nor ANTI GMA. gusto lang nako unta dili na lang tanan sisihon kay GMA.

    I got your point Digi pero talamak naman gud ang mga palpak ni Arroyo; not to mention ang mga scandal ug ang kabulok sa iyang administrasyon.

    Unta lagi, magbag-o na ang sistema. Kon dli man gani sisihon pag ayo si GMA, unta man lang -- maningkamot cya na mubalik ang trust sa mga tao sa iya. Buhaton niya ang tama -- ug kanang para sa nakadghan ug dli ang pansarili lang. =)

    Not sure how it works in the philippines but where I come from you can actually cast a blank vote. This is a new option because not enough people were voting. The number of blank votes starts to raise concern that people (especially the younger demografics) are really confused about election promises of gold and green forests... Hopefully in the future politicians will become honest about what they intend to accomplish and also achieve it, YEAH RIGHT! This is real life, not some anime or drama we watch on telly!

    I say vote for either the devil you know or the least evil candidate you can find...

    Oh, and on a side note, I was here before trying to figure out the math thing. It did not make sense to me so I left again ^_^ sorry

    This is no place for a Texan to respond. But Like Pewee said, they are all evil and you just have to do your homework and find out which one is the least evil. And if you choose the wrong one it's no guarantee they will win anyway.

    It's really hard to choose right now, hindi kasi natin makita kung sino talaga yung sincere at totoong tao sa kanila.I hope kung sino man ang manalo,he/she would really have a good intentions in serving the Filipino people.

You told Your close followers
who were taught how to seek the Father's heart
that whatever they asked for in prayer,
that they were to believe they received it
and it would be theirs. (Mark 11:24)

O, Father, help me to know Your heart intimately
so that I'll know how to pray,
what to pray,
and believe in advance
that I will receive it!
