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 You Don’t Know It

If you are a political figure, it cannot be prevented that you will be traced by your followers. These followers of yours may be those who find you credible and reliable as a leader or those who find you a huge mistake. But nevertheless, regardless of the types of followers you have, since you are a political and public figure, it is already expected of you that you deliver your dues.

Regardless of your achievements be praised or mocked, you are already out of it. There are those people, no matter what you do to them, even if you have already exhausted your best capacity, they will see you a mishap. Worse, they do black propaganda to you so that even during your term of service you will already have a negative impression to the people. Worst, you lose your turn in the next election. Well, not because you are ineligible but because people already lose their trust on you. And the next thing you know, you have a slim chance to win the elections.
