I thought of creating this thread because the elections are getting closer, and the main characters have all come out of the woodwork.

One other reason why I thought it prudent was because it seems a lot of my friends and relatives have no one to vote for President. They're all "tainted", including Noynoy Aquino (ref. here, tnx Grim!). I'd like to hear your thoughts on mainly the Presidential and Vice-Presidential elections, though comments on the Senatorial elections are fine too.

Some of the prominent names for the Senate are even more depressing:

Lito Lapid
Bong Revilla Jr.
Tito Sotto
Jovito Palparan Jr.
...and others.
For the Senatorial election, I'll probably vote;

Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel (Akbayan)
Satur Ocampo (Bayan Muna)
Liza Maza (Gabriela)
Ramon "Mon-Mon" Mitra

Maybe Miriam Defensor-Santiago, kahit baliw siya
Maybe retired general Danilo Lim
Maybe Pia Cayetano

...I don't know who else either. Jason

Too bad Kabayan didn't run, would've voted for him. Teodoro I think. VP Jay Sonza doesn't sound bad.

CZ: Are you joking Blink Kadiri BF. Pink Pilipinas.

Random thought: Not voting would be the worse possible option of all, because it would give more importance to everyone else's votes, especially the flying and dadag ones Domo

That's why it's important to educate people about the candidates before elections Smile

I don't care what about the pinkish glow but if he can wipe of even a little of the grime stinking up modern day politics he can paint me baby pink for all he cares XD

syempre results first before any painting will happen Laughing

but seriously out of everyone there running for pres and vice those two are the only ones I have faith in XD no offence to Ninoy but I just cannot remove the feeling his riding on his mother's fame.

Ganyan naman kasi ang Politics, sakay lang sa nakararami, kasi ang nakararami lang ang nagdidikta ng pagkapanalo. But as was pointed out a couple of posts ago, not voting would be the worst possible option.

I'd like to ask for your personal opinions about Gibo, Erap, and Villar though.

I won't vote Gibo for sure because he said he won't prosecute GMA, and will continue most of her policies. Also, if GMA wins her Congressional seat and becomes House Speaker, having Gibo as President would make it easier for her to facilitate the shift to the parliamentary system of government that she wants.

I don't really have much to say about the other two, except that Villar seems like a very traditional trapo politician. Nothing will change under him.

It's a lot easier to slash names from that list rather than actually picking. -______- It'll take me a lot of time to sort this out.

lol I just can't find anyone trustworthy anymore when it comes to the Philippine scene.

Like Nix said, it's more of pick your poison/the lesser evil.

Yup, this is a problem. I remember in one PolSci class I took before, our professor suggested that the top two candidates for president have another level of elections between them, so that the elected leader is truly elected by majority vote.

My Aunt's gonna vote for Nick Perlas. Hindi ko alam kung bakit that's why I did a search...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicanor_Per...te_in_2010

He's probably the presidentiable with the least flawed, if not the cleanest record. It a shame for COMELEC to have him declared unfit just because of his lifestyle.
Para na rin nila sinabi na: Mayaman ka, maganda buhay mo, kahit magnanakaw ka, OK lang ang magin presidente ka. Ang sama nun ha.

This is the problem with the Phillipines: 'We don't know you, We don't vote for you', Seeing it at that persepective, sa kadidikdik ni Villar sa mukha nya sa TV with all his jingles, he might win. Pero sa alam ko, feb or april pa dapat mangmpanya ang mga tatakbo.
Pacquiao and Revilla jr. have movies as well.

Ang dami na ng broken rules sa phillipine elections.

Philippines will always be Philippines. Regardless of who you vote. That is why I am lazy to vote for anyone this year. In fact I don't think I'd ever be voting for anyone in my life time. Our country is so corrupted. I don't want to offend anyone here but I think we'd be better of being subjugated under a major and successful ruling body.

As of the latest survey, Noynoy and Villar are almost tied.
http://opinion.inquirer.net/inquireropin...-dead-heat

...Here's an article summarizing Villar's anomalies with the C5 Project

Everything you wanted to know about the C5 Project but were afraid to ask, by Winnie Monsod
http://blogs.gmanews.tv/winnie-monsod/ar...o-ask.html


Which is making me wonder, who's saying they're going to be voting for Villar in the polls?
