Dito ko na lang lagay itong e-mail ni Harvey para di na ako mag create ng ELECTION related thread
What will make me leave the Philippines ... An Open Letter to Every
Dear Fellow Filipino,
Good day to all of you! Before I begin my letter... just a
disclaimer, for people who know me they know that I love the
Philippines very much and I am not really one who rants and
complaints to high heavens about what is happening to our country and
does nothing about it, in fact, I feel that at my relatively young
age of 27, I have done much service to the Philippines by setting up
Pathways to Higher Education which has sent more than 500 poor but
deserving students to college and AHON Foundation which has already
built two public elementary school libraries that have benefitted
more than 3,500 students. Yet, after seeing how events in our nation
have transpired the past few weeks and talking with some friends, I
feel the urge to share with you my own thoughts and feelings.
Over the weekend, we saw the completion of two major political
alliances for this coming Senate Elections that has just began here
in the Philippines . Now we have two political forces with familiar
faces nonetheless on opposite sides of the fences. On one end, you
have Tito Sotto and Tessie Aquino-Oreta who were two major stalwarts
of the opposition and the FPJ Campaign in 2004 hobnobbing with the
woman (Pres. GMA) whom they claimed to have cheated FPJ in the last
Presidential Elections.On the other side of the fence, you see Manny
Villar, the former house speaker who was actually responsible for
impeaching Erap now part of the United Opposition who is led by no
less than... Erap himself. Now if you don't see anything wrong with
this picture then you must be one of the many Filipinos who have
accepted this very sad reality that there is indeed no permanent
ideals that our government leaders stand up for but rather they just
go where there self-interests can best be served. It is this kind of
politics why I no longer wonder why good people like Ramon Magsaysay
Awardee Mayor Jesse Robredo of Naga City or outstanding Bulacan
Governor Josie Dela Cruz will find it hard or worse, never be elected
to national positions.
It is with these in mind that I'd like to share with you what are
events this coming May elections that will make me consider leaving
the Philippines :
1.) If former COMELEC Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano of Hello Garci
fame wins in his bid to become Congressman of Bukidnon...seeking to
replace a good man no less in incumbent Cong. Neric Acosta... We
would really be the laughing stock of the whole world if we allow a
man with the reputation of Garci to be one of our so
called "Honorable Gentlemen".
2.) If Dancing Queen Tessie Aquino Oreta reclaims her seat at the
Senate... I hope that all of us would still remember that dance that
she did during the 2001 impeachment hearings after they voted to
overrule the decision of then Chief Justice Davide... let us make
sure that people like her never make it to the Senate again.
3.) If Richard Gomez becomes a senator... what does he know about
making laws? We already have the likes of Bong Revilla and Lito Lapid
in the Senate and their performance or lack of it would be reason
enough not to elect another actor who has no prior experience in
government to the distinguished halls of the Senate.
4.) If Gringo Honasan wins again.... have we not learned our lesson?
I cannot believe that just because someone is charismatic then we
will just elect him to become one of our senators despite the fact
that he has time and again caused so much instability in our
country... if we want a military junta similar to that of
Thailand ... then lets all vote for this guy....
5.) If Manny Pacquiao becomes Congressman of General Santos City...
everybody loves Manny the Boxing Champ but Manny the Lawmaker? Lets
be realistic here, Manny is our Hero alright but I think it takes
more than just great boxing skills and a desire to serve to be able
to make appropriate laws that would help uplift the lives of the many
Filipinos who live in Poverty.
6.) If Lito Lapid wins for Mayor of Makati City... I don't like Jojo
Binay as well but Lito Lapid as city mayor of the country's finance
and business center?!?! And do you really think he is from Makati and
has good plans for the city? The Arroyos asking someone like him to
run just goes to show you how much love and concern this government
has for our country.
7.) If Chavit Singson becomes a Senator, Illegal Gambling = Chavit...
Now if all of these 7 things happen during this coming elections then
don't be surprised if I decide to leave this country that I love
dearly. Like I said during the first part of my letter, I
feel that I have done much for this country but I think its time that
Filipinos become more vigilant and critical in selecting our leaders
for the sake of our future and the generations that will go beyond
us. So I appeal to every Filipino who asks what can I actually do for
my country... Choose and vote for the right people this coming
elections, huwag na tayong magpaloko sa mga kandidatong maganda lang
ang jingle o gwapo lang sa mga poster. Let us choose leaders who have
a good track record for service and who are genuinely committed
towards serving our country.
Manindigan naman tayong lahat para sa ating Kinabukasan at para sa
Kapakanan ng ating Bayan!
Thank you very much for your time in reading this letter.

he he he. bro jojit di natin mabilang ang na vote out mo. tingnan lang natin ang pulso na mga naglilingkod sa Diyos
baka dito ay may makukuha pa tayong mga ideas. Tulad sa nabanggit sa open letter na naipost dito ni Bro Alex isang pananaw lamang yan ng isang kaisipan na palagay nya na ang mga ito ay hindi makabubuti sa atin sambayanan.
Palagay ko yung mga na vote out mo ay yung palagay mo naman na walang magagawa sa atin lipunan.
Konti palang ang nagpo post pero mayron na akong idea kung sino sino ang papasok sa Magic 12 sa darating na halalan

Para di na mahirapan si samaritan2001, nag create na ako ng POLL, pero 2 weeks lang ha, kaya boto na kayo. Di ko alam how to limit the vote to 12 lang pero be honest na lang to vote only 12.
07.03.25, 09:52 AM
we have 12 posts to fill pero with the quality of senatorial candidates this election, parang mahirap makumpleto ang labindalawa sa balota natin.
let's vote wisely! the future is in our hands.
07.03.26, 03:01 PM
sa totoo lang, hindi ko rin mapuno yung 12 slots na kailangan. mukhang hanggang kalahati lang ako. anyway, sana nga, yung mga taong totoong magsisilbi sa bayan ang syang maihalal natin sa eleksyon.
07.03.26, 08:18 PM
So far leading si Pangilinan at Escudero with 6 votes each. Yung mga bumoto na dati by just posting, I suggest you answer the POLLS kasi di natin maka-count ang vote ninyo.
Di naman natin pwede i-add, kasi di natin alam kung meron madodoble ang boto diba.
