It is the first time that we’re tackling such a scale topic as this. Politics. RP 2010 is closing in, the 2010 Philippine Elections. The year that is about the bring change, change in the administration, and the leaving of what many people consider, tyrant PGMA.
The news about the political situation here in the Philippines is crazy. An ousted president publicly expresses his wish to run for president once again to lead the nation of 92 million Filipinos. A very promising icon for presidency has changed his mind and instead supports his co-party member with the objective to claim the presidential spot. Imelda Marcos wishes her son Marcos Jnr to reach for a higher position (ex. president) in 2010. All this news, all these views, all these opinions. But this shouldn’t be the highlight on television and the news.
The Nation continuously suffers
Current President of the Philippines is involved in controversial issues, like the very expensive dinner she had during her stay in the United States. So has the Arroyo family as a whole been put to deep controversy with issues like undeclared property purchased abroad. These talks still don’t really matter the most, and even if there’s truth behind these accusations, who would really care?
There are millions of people who are suffering, and I bet none of them minds what is going with the politics, but would rather be helped instead getting involved in talks about the future of the country, and that is where the real issue starts.
People get blinded by the Media
Many movies have showcased how easily people can get manipulated by mass media, talk about Echelon, Angels and Demons and District 9 to name a few. We shouldn’t be another victim. W. Revillame has been a victim, when he voiced out to have either his show or the funeral stopped airing at the same time on the television sets of people at home. Whose fault was it? Revillame? Or, rather Abs-Cbn’s? Come to think of it and look outside of the box. It was for moneys sake that abs-cbn has put up the noon-time show, and tribute for the late president to have the funeral streamed, but hey, that’s wrong. That’s totally wrong. And who do we accuse after all? Willie Revillame, because that is what the media says, and prominent media people as well.
We should be careful about whom we’ll vote this coming elections. We should look outside of the box, and beyond the scope that media covers to show to ourselves the candidates we’re pointing at to lead our government. Don’t be blinded, and don’t just stare but think while looking around. The 2010 elections are very near, and we’ve really nothing to lose anymore, but everything to win.
All the talks but no actions
It’s very annoying to note that Erap, N. Aquino, M. Roxas and their likes are promoting and voicing out to the world that they would like to lead the nation, but don’t server in deeds. I challenge all of them to stop promoting, and instead get to work to help the poor people who are in need. Okay, you’ve got a point there when you say that Manny Villar is helping out at some places and in some cases, but that doesn’t look like voluntary help, rather, it looks like he’s up promoting himself and expecting a boost in popularity and the loyalty of the people in return for what he has done.
It’ll be tremendously visible to our eyes how each candidate is going to brainwash the people. Helping on one side, and then on the other side, and then letting everyone know what he’s done. It’s not right. You don’t to help and shout it out to everyone, you help and ask nothing in return, not even a second on national television that’ll tell people of what you did. Well, it’s hard to know who has done what if we don’t know about their deeds and actions for the poor people, the simple point is..
Don’t let their actions manipulate you, especially now, down the stretch as the elections are nearing where all of them will try to please everyone to gain the interest of the people, again, you have to look beyond their deeds of the present, look the path they’ve traveled, analyze and see, whether their journey and the credit they’ve earned is worthy to be crowned with the presidential seat of the Philippines.
hello eveyone…….sana sa darating na election ay magbago na talaga ang bansa.Maka-vote ng nararapat na president para sa ikaka unlad ng bansa hindi yung tutulungan tayong maghirap pa.Sana kunti na lang ang magkakaroon ng advertisement o infomercial dahil malaki na ang gastos.Meron namang media,gamitin nyo ito wag kayong magsayang ng pera. Yung perang gagamitin nyo sana ay ipunin nyo at ipantulong sa mahihirap pagdating ng panahon.
SANA MAGBAGO NA TALAGA AT SIMULAN NATIN TO SA ATING SARILI.
Excellent point that we forgot to stress out. All the money for the promotion is really a huge waste.
matagal nang nawalan ng pag-asa sa eleksyon, pero kailangan talagang paghandaan baka may mabago pa..i hope!
Elections is a w
let us start the change we want to see….the change we long to see…nd let the change start within ourselves….
i guess? teens should be aware about the philippines real situation.
instead of watching those tv dramas or entertainmevt shows?
why not watch news? to let there selves be informed about the reality of what is really going on!
duh! instead of readnig those fashion magz? y not read news papers? or books that'll let them be informed about today's philippines real situation!
hmmm?! i hope this'll make sense…
i know it's grammatically wrong hehe atleast the grammatical errors makes your reading worthwhile wew!
I agree with you. I hope that many more wil coneti realize this.
good point!all the talks but no action!:)..they don't need to blurt out all the things that they have done. but the main reason that they endorse themselves is to be known by people/the public.
Besides that, how would someone vote his/her leader if he/she doesn't have any idea regarding those persons who would run for presidency?Do you think that those presidential candidates would win if first and foremost …the public doesn't know them?
That's why..those who would run into politics…always advertise their faces in the media…
But still, regardless of their promises and whatsoever..What action was done?NONE…Philippines is still underdeveloped.
"Leadership is action not a position"—but what does our politicians do?
Even though they lose in the battle of running for the highest position, they still have an another option….to extend their term as a senator and what's next??
—another scam again~Corruption is the key for their overflowing wealth…
Let's just hope that there would be a massive change in this coming elections…
A hope, a good future, and a systematic government. that's what we need!:)
