It’s only a few days before elections. It’s going to be another one of those opportunities that Filipinos are going to waste by electing incompetent and power-hungry officials to rule over them. The public service bullshit is really just that: bullshit. It’s always been as clear as day. Just check their track record with what they say and do during the campaign period.
It feels kind of reassuring when I browse social media sites and see most of the opinions I read are against corrupt and traditional politicians. There’s an endless clamor for reformation in the government and everybody seems to be united in not voting for politicians who have been accused or convicted of graft and corruption in the coming elections. While this all sounds promising, I’m concerned about the actual number of these intelligent social media users that are registered to vote.
The only reason anyone would think that the election period has officially started is because the filing of candidacy has just been opened. In truth, the shameless campaigning of those wishing to run for public office next year has already started many months ago. Heck, there were already political ads last year. It refreshes my memory of all the frustrating questions about politics and politicians in general.
