My Voice, My Stand

Twisted Minds

Going back to the one of the most disgusting political news I’ve heard, regarding the victory of an eighteen year old boy to a forty five year old juris doctor for the mayoralty position in a town nearby my place, I would like to express my opinion on it.

The eighteen year old candidate won because of his fame and money. His father used to be their town mayor and since his father cannot run anymore because he has already served thee consecutive terms, for their family to continue the dynasty, a family member must run. The most eligible, if you call it eligible, is his eldest son that is, again, eighteen years old.

Now the forty five year old lawyer lost because he lacked the funds and the supporters even though he has already established goodwill. The people, the electors, even before knowing deeply the candidates, had already picked a choice of who to vote based on money, influence and popularity.

Until we change ourselves can we make the world a better place to live in.

When Power Comes In

A disgusting news was released after the elections were over. It was a month ago when I heard just a day after the votes had been casted. The news was an announcement of the results of the elections in a town nearby. An eighteen year old boy won over a forty five year old gentleman.

You may thought that I have a bias on age. I would say I favor to the experience that makes one qualify for a position. The forty five year old candidate is a juris doctor and has been in the service for more than twenty years. He has helped hundreds, if not thousands, of people, especially those who people in need. He helps people without expecting anything from return. Everyone knows he had clear intentions for his town. Everyone knows he had a bright vision for his townspeople. And he still lost. He lost over an eighteen-year old kiddo.

What could’ve been the problem?
