Public Service or Self-Service

9 May

On Election Day, who among those candidates do you vote for? Who among them do you think is deserving for the said position? Is he/she for the welfare of the general public or is he/she for his/her own welfare once he/she won the election?

What Reasons Behind

Does your candidate running for a government position want to accumulate monies and real properties from government funds, infrastructure projects and programs? Does your candidate running for a government position want to gain authority and power for his own business protection and vested interest? Does he/she have hidden agenda after all? Does your candidate running for a government position have sincere mission and goal-oriented vision to really serve the people? Does he/she possess high qualifications of a good leader?

Voters Expectations

How do you expect a candidate for a government position doing vote-buying before the Election Day? How do you expect a candidate spending millions for election campaign wherein he/she can receive only thousands on his/her monthly salary once he/she was elected? How do you expect a candidate for a government position who can even murder his/her opponent through whatever means just to get the desired position? Sometimes, some candidates do not fully understand the primary reasons why people want to vote. People vote because they want to improve their quality of life. They do not want to live in poverty. People want a government that can provide free and quality education, hospitalization, transportation, food and shelter which what they have expect from paying of their taxes to the government.  Low-income families in the provinces and in poor urban areas really need these things. People want change. They want to live peacefully, happily and free from any forms of discrimination. People want to live in a very clean and safe environment. People have a lot of expectations every time they cast their vote for a candidate whom they believe who can defend them for their rights and privileges as a citizen of the country and whom they believe that can support and help them in times of need.

Citizen’s Role

Every citizen of the country has a corresponding role. He/She must be a good thinker and decision-maker.  He/She should do a background check or see their track records of the candidates in the politics or outside the politics. He/She should not rely on the political ads to make a voting decision. See on what they did rather on what they say now. It is one’s right to vote this Election Day.

    Dito sa pinas pera lang ang nagpapaikot e ! bigyan ka lang ng maliiy na pera ay ipagpapalit na angboto kaya tayo na cocorupt e , sa tutuusin mayaman ang ating bansa pero dahil sa maling pamamalakad ng Gobyerno ay naghihirap tayo e lalo na ang mga nasa malayong probinsya . Nakikiya ko oang maunlad ay ang mga na sa syidad puro gusali at mga oark. para sakin sa darating na botohan siguraduhin niyo ang iboboto niyo para naman sa pagbabago ng bansa .

    Bilang isang kabataan mulat na sa aking kaisipan ang patungkol sa ibat-ibang isyu sa pamahalaan. Bilang isang mamamayan din naman ay kapag tumungtong nako sa edad na maaarin ng bumoto ay isasaalang-alang ko ang kapakanan hindi lan gng aking sarili kundi pati ng ibang tao. Nararapat na kung maghahalal tayo ng tao sa isang posisyon ay siguraduhing ang taong ito ay may paninindigan at kabutihan ng lahat ay kanyang uunahin bago ang lahat ng bagay.

    PAGBABAGO, nagsisimula ito sa ating mga sarili. Masyado nang naghirap ang ating bansa dahil sa mga manloloko. Kung tutuosin ay maunlad na dapat tayo. Iuukit ko sa aking isip na sa pnahon na maari na akong makilahok sa botohan ay titiyakin ko na matino ang aking ihahalal sa pwesto.
