I dunno who owns the image, but yeah, I thought it was the most appropriate image for this blog post. So to the owner of the image, I'm sorry to use it without asking for any permission.
I can't believe we're exactly a week away from the Philippine Presidential Elections. A lot of gossips have spread regarding the elections. Whether the elections would really push through or that Gloria would still stay in power and that a failure of elections would happen. I thought the Filipino deserved more than this. I believe the elections would push through next week and I'm excited about it.
I got here a few things in mind about what might happen when the country would have elected its 15th president:
1. If Manny Villar would win, he would be the most sorry president this country would ever have. Why? Because every single centavo he would earn, every project that he would approve, every new development from his company would be scrutinized like crazy by his critics. This guy's awfully rich. I feel sorry for him cos I know even without the presidency, his business will always continue to grow. People need houses.
2. If Noynoy Aquino would win, everything that the Catholic church would say would be approved. Scrap the Reproductive Health Bill? Check. No To The Mining Act? Check.
3. If Gibo Teodoro would win? Hmmmm, Gloria Arroyo might stay with him. She hopes to become the Prime Minister one day. Either that or he would stay true to the individualistic nature he's shown throughout the campaign period and be his own guy.
4. I don't think the People Power 4 would be successfully if Noynoy Aquino loses the elections. I hope everybody is tired of such a scenario already. People power revolts are now overrated and we got to admit it! Pro-activism is much more effective than People power revolts.
I hope we could all choose the best leader to lead the country come May 10. If you gonna ask me, I think my vote will go to Gibo Teodoro and Mar Roxas.
