Your vote does have a power to change the future of our country. That power is your privilege as a Filipino. It’s a privilege you inherited from our heroes in the past who sacrificed their lives to ensure that our generation can enjoy the freedom of choice, especially the freedom to choose the people who will lead our country.
A wise vote could bring peace and prosperity to our country. On the other hand, a wrong vote could bring poverty, corruption, conflict, and layers of layers of man-made disasters to our nation.
Living in a country which is led by an incompetent and corrupt president is a nightmare.
If you want to see a better change in our country and wake up from a nightmare, don’t let these 8 types of Presidentiables be elected as president of the Philippines in the coming 2016 Presidential Election.
1. A presidentiable who did a poor performance in his previous job.
Before supporting, campaigning or voting for a presidentiable, check first his previous performance and achievements as a public official. If he’s a former legislator (senator or congressperson), did he author and pass meaningful laws that can help the lives of the Filipinos? If he’s a former mayor or governor, what did he do to improve the lives of his constituents? If he’s a vice president, did he become a helpful vice president?
2. A presidentiable who has a lot of unexplained wealth.
It doesn’t matter if a presidentiable owns a castle or a simple house. What matters is that he can explain where it came from. If a presidentiable became too rich during his political career, then you should be suspicious. If a presidentiable is afraid to face the court or an investigating committee to explain his wealth and other allegations of corruption, then you should be warned.
3. A presidentiable who buys everything and everyone to get what he wants.
A politician who puts his faith in money can be a terrible leader you have ever imagined. He will buy votes to corrupt the outcome of the election. He will buy the media to hide the dark truths about him. He will buy the court to falsely fabricate his innocence. This kind of presidentiable will use money instead of hard work, trust and goodwill to get what he wants. And where do you expect him to get the money he’s spending? From his own pocket? I don’t think so.
4. A presidentiable who cannot follow simple laws.
Do you wish to have a president who can’t even follow simple traffic rules? Do you want to elect a president who fights against his police officers who are just doing their job? Do you want to have an executive leader who breaks the laws he has approved?
5. A presidentiable who exploits the poor for his own interest.
You will see him having lunch with the poor to prove that he cares for them yet he has done nothing to help them build their house, livelihood, health and education. You will see his “epal” name and face printed in the relief goods distributed to the victims of natural disasters like the Super Typhoon Yolanda and the earthquakes that hit Visayas.
6. A presidentiable who cannot make his own decision.
In other words, a puppet. As an executive position, the president makes decisions and puts them into effect. We elect a president to lead us. We do not elect a leader whose decisions are influenced by the people or institutions whom he has debt of gratitude.
7. A presidentiable who is too political.
Too much politics can divide a country and cause its fall down. A good president or father of our nation helps local government units whether they are pro administration or not – whether they are Aquinos or Romualdez.
8. A presidentiable who cheated on his/her husband or wife.
Well, if a presidentiable has cheated on the person whom he has promised to love for the rest of his life, then how can you be sure that he will not fool the Filipino people whom he did not even meet in his life?
We only exercise our right to elect a president once in every six years. So don’t waste your vote.
What will happen to your hard-earned taxes if we will be governed by a corrupt president? Will it be utilized for building our nation or the other way around?
What will happen when natural disasters strike your town or region? Can you expect an effective and efficient rescue, relief and recovery operations?
Will there be an effective justice system to punish all types of criminals to ensure that our country is safe and secure for our children?
Do you want to live in a country where the president and his family are consuming and enjoying the wealth of our nation yet millions of Filipinos are suffering from famine and poverty?
Do you want a president who will sell our country for the love of money? Of course not.
If you love your country, know your vote.

Abdul Salik says
tama ka NO to Binay but OK to DUTERTE……YES…
ok sya manalo kaya?
I am afraid that all of these reminders, warnings and concerns are not applicable to our present electoral scheme – it seems to be that whoever is the most powerful within hi-social connections, most aggressive in political gains, most popular in terms of image-building and with the biggest funds for manipulations – shall win.
Abdul Salik says
exactly comelec is pushing smartmatic pecos machine to be in the 2016 election, a machine for hitech cheating
Roy Morimoto says
yeah, who cares about the people once they get elected, just as long as their pockets get fat he wont’ care about the poor people….i don’t need to mention any names here but there is only one such man who is trying so hard to be number one so he can be the fattest in the philippines.

To: Mr. NS, Rene Serrano at iba pa. Noong nag Presidential Election noon nasa Hongkong ako OFW-Absentee Voters kami, Running for Pres noon GloriaAroyo, Fernando Poe, almost 100% of OFW in HK participated in that Election. Noong nag Pres Election ulit. Almost 20% lang sa Absentee voters ang nagparticipate. Reason – mag bubuhos kami nang time and gagastos kami nang pamasahe at pagkain, then after the Election wala naman mangyayari sa mga Filipino at Pilipinas. (some are 1 to 2 hours travel to BAyanihan Centre) natutulog sa Bayanihan Center HK ang Comelec Watchers on that election. for your info guys at that time (more than 200,000 Thousand Domestic Helper OFW in HK) – (more 50,000 are members of NOPT – National Organization of Professional Teachers some of them are Principal and Head teachers in Govt School in PInas) they are still there until now. They told us thousand of anomalies in DepEd.

Is there really a good choice for any of the candidates? We always hear people saying “vote wisely” or “don’t vote for corrupt politicians” but do we really have a choice? Most of the time people are just voting not the one they think is best for the position but just the one who (hopefully) will be least corrupted.
But.. but… Duterte cheated on his wife and I am still waiting for him to run!
he did not cheat on his wife because they area separated
