2010 Politicians - What;'s wrong with them?

It's actually been a long time since I last criticized Philippine politics, so I'll give it a shot today. Ahahahaha. Just kidding.

Have you seen the "pre-campaigning" ads of some known people? Many wonder if this is somewhat legal. But in my opinion, this is kind of wasteful - I mean, can't they just campaign during THE campaigning period and just announce their candidacy or whatever when they register? It's kind of like writing a birthday card to someone's birthday that's still 2 or 3 years to go! And besides, they'll just waste a lot of money that should be saved for the real campaigning period.

Secondly, there have been lots of HUGE (if not, slightly huge) bilboards, signboards, or tarpaulin signs of politicians either giving some holiday greeting or supporting a community/government project. That too, is a waste of cash. It would be much better if they would personally be on the project site and cooperate whole-heartedly, but not in a "plastic" manner. Also, if they REALLY need to put signs with their names on it, they should avoid making their name look bigger than the greeting or message itself - it's simply annoying.

And third (no offense showbiz people), people from the showbusiness or mass media should try (as much as possible) not to get involved into politics, because it will definitely scorn and destroy their image, as politics is one dangerous jungle to get out of. Politics is not just about money or power, nor does it involve stardom. Politics is simply serving your community and helping out making the world a better place (which I believe anyone can do). Also, politics and entertainment are two completely different fields.

So, people who are going to vote in the 2010 elections, please vote as wise as you can. Choose which politician TRULY deserves his or her crown. Choose the one who is sincere, who is not "all talk but no action", and one who has the right skills to be in his position. Good day everyone! Happy reading! :D
