I posted this on my Facebook wall and it got interesting reactions and discussions. I was thinking about the Philippines and the upcoming elections. I am hoping that the Filipinos choose wisely when voting this time. We’re due to elect a president, a vice-president and 12 senators, am not sure if they’re electing other officials.
The fate of my country ultimately lies in the choices its voters make. It is my hope that Filipinos who are able to vote make informed choices this time. I hope they don’t vote for personalities.
I very rarely post anything political. Because I believe that you can’t complain if you don’t exercise your constitutional right to express your opinion, to make a choice. I haven’t voted in a very long time. So I can’t really complain about how things have turned out in the country.
I do have one request, though, when you vote, please remember that you vote for Filipinos who cannot vote. Please remember that you are making a choice that will affect everyone else in the country.
Please chose your politicians wisely. Make sure that you think about your choices. You are voting for people to lead the country and make its laws. Make sure you vote for people who will lift the country up, make sure you vote for people who care more about the greater Filipino good than what is good for them. The only agenda has got to be the Philippines, what’s best for the country and its population.
Please and thank you.
That’s it. That’s me off my soapbox.
