Today is a sad day for the Philippines. The fate of 90 million Filipinos now lies in the hands of people whose main quality is their popularity. Ability? Good question! Today, I take no pride in being a Filipino as I cannot reconcile to the fact that an impeached president almost made it to the top post again. Today I take no pride that a great majority of my fellow Filipinos voted for movie stars and super athletes. Call me a snob. Call me an elitist. Call me anything you want but the fact that majority of the Filipino voting population do not possess the right mind and intelligence to be given the right to vote holds true.

Manny Pacquiao, excuse me, Dr./Congressman Manny Pacquiao will be one of the Philippine's lawmakers. Noynoy is, most likely, the next president of the Republic of the Philippines. Isn't it amazing that a year ago he was not even considered to run for the presidency even as a joke? If Cory Aquino didn't die, Noynoy would most likely be still having a great time sleeping in the Senate, sitting on the 9 passed-zero-approved bills he authored or co-authored. While other senators and congressmen are authoring and co-authoring bills left and right, Noynoy was happy with his 9 bills.

The Filipinos lost the chance to be led by an intelligent, honorable and highly qualified man, Gibo Teodoro. I think that Gibo lost the fight because he lacked the funds and the machinery to promote himself. I take part of the blame as I did not do enough to campaign for my candidate. I cannot say "next time" as there won't be a next time for Gibo. He has conceded and said that his running for public office was a one-time thing.

I feel so sad that until now, the Filipinos have not learned from the past. There might still be hope for a brighter Philippines. I don't know... I've been hearing this cliche for the longest time. At this moment all I can think of is to pray for the fate of the Filipinos.

  1. Sad noh? I was following the counting online and I am amazed how many people actually voted for Estrada. Parang 'duh'...Sabi nga ni M, itong mga ganitong pangyayari ang reason why the Phils is in such bad state.
