PHILIPPINE ELECTION 2016

It was my first time to exercise my right to vote today. The excitement was there, I feel like I’m officially a part of my country being able to have a say on who’s going to lead our nation. It was great to be heard. The process was quite irritating though, I had to wait in a long line before I could vote but other than that there was no other problem.

Politics in the Philippines is an interesting topic to talk about, it’s like a movie there’s action, drama, comedy even romance lol. It’s sad, dirty and funny and every election, it’s like all the citizens in the Philippines suddenly become a political analysts. Suddenly they became opinionated about politics and became a know-it-all (I’m becoming one now lol). This 2016 election was by far the funniest because mainly social media was involved, lots of memes circulating, lots of opinions being thrown but this election it’s like people are really clamoring for change, citizens of the Philippines finally woke up (did they?). Filipinos are very desperate for change that’s why most of them voted for the president who is an authoritarian, disciplinarian and kind of a dictator. It seemed that everyone wanted to bring back that “Marcos” era where Philippines was very developed they say but also millions of lives were taken. The funny thing is that Filipinos can easily forget because back then Filipinos did a revolution that stopped Marcos’ dictatorship but now they sort of wanted that kind of leadership again?

We could have had the best president who was known as the Iron Lady of Asia, overqualified candidate who studied at the finest schools and universities, served in the three branches of the government and the only thing that stopped you was her health that she doesn’t even worry about.

rodrigo-duterte-pres

So most of the Filipinos chose a MAYOR who only led a city that ranks 9th safest city in the world, yes it was impressive but leading a city is not the same as leading a whole country.

Okay I’m going to stop there before I say something else and this post becomes another rant post lol.

All I wish for the new president and I guess that it’s Mayor Duterte or should I say President Duterte now (even if the vote counts are still partial). I wish that you can prove me wrong for my judgments against you. I want you to do what you said that we should all have a RULE OF LAW so please stop the “jokes” about doing extrajudicial killings just to suppress crimes. Just do your best, have morality, please watch your words and be decent. I also wish that the democracy that Filipinos fought for 30 years ago will remain.

And to the Filipinos the true change starts with you. STOP COMPLAINING AND WHINING. JUST ACT. The problem in our country are discipline and action. Even if your president is very competent but you yourself don’t follow the rules and you don’t act on the wrong doings, it’s all a waste.

Good luck Philippines, God bless us all.

SA MGA KABABAYAN KONG BOTANTE:

 

Bukas ay eleksyon na, sigurado ka na ba talaga sa iboboto mo?

 

1st time kong boboto at ayokong masayang ito kaya’t pinag-isipan ko talaga kung sino iboboto ko.

 

May iba kasi dyan na nakikiuso lang kaya nila iboboto ang kandidato na iyon, pahalagahan mo ang iyong boto at dapat alam mong karapat dapat sya sa posisyon na iyon. At wag nating isipin lang ang Pilipinas, oo “maganda” nga ang plano nya sa Pilipinas (maganda nga ba?) pero dapat ang magiging presidente natin ay magaling din makipag-usap sa ibang bansa, dahil ang koneksyon sa ibang bansa ay napakahalaga upang umunlad ang isang bansa kaya’t pag-isipan nyong mabuti yan.

 

Nung una akala ko sya na ang iboboto ko dahil parang desperado narin ako na magbago ang Pilipinas pero napaisip rin ako na parang hindi tama at hindi handa ang bansang ito sa ganoong pamamahala. Kelangan daw ng Rule of Law pero kung ano ang gusto nya eh ayon ang masusunod? Parang di naman ata tama iyon. Napaisip talaga ako at kung siya man ang manalo wag kang magrereklamo kung ayaw mo ang pamamahala nya kahit siya ang binoto mo.

 

At para sa iboboto ko alam kong hindi sya perpekto pero siya lang ang nakikita kong competent and deserving para maging presidente, sa sobrang tagal na nyang nagsisilbi sa national government at kahit nanakaw sa kanya ang pagka pangulo noon ay babalik siya ngayon at naniniwala akong siya talaga ang sagot.

 


Mas gusto ko na yung nagba-buckle sumagot pero may laman kesa naman sa sagot ng sagot napapahamak naman.

 

Pero na sa satin parin kung gusto nating umayos ang Pilipinas. Satin dapat magsimula ang pagbabago.

 

VOTE WISELY. 

 

Sorry it became a rant lol. 
Opinyon ko lamang ito at kung may gusto kang sabihin, isulat mo din 🙂
