sad... but true, either way during the previous election, it would have been hard to choose who would win.
we would need to have voter's education and lots of volunteer work to help our fellow Filipino's choose a better leader.
I hope we dont really deserve the leader's we get, but I hope we get the leader's we need, those who will place the country and the majority of the need's of Filipino's above one's self and above the party.
Most of the time, the political party, or those close to the person's in power gets the ears and attention and sadly the deals as well.
I am sure the Philippine's is not alone in this situation, Thailand had ousted their Prime Minister, the US has accusations against their President, our Neighbor in japan and Malaysia has their own political issues. So we must not lose hope that the situation we have now is our own, but it is a global issue, an issue of power and favoring those in power.
We are still lucky though, our media is more free than most, the internet provides easy access to information, digital camera and pictures can capture more information to back up accusations, and we are still a patient and religous nation.
Sobriety and a search for truth, trying to understand both sides would be needed.
