Have YOU Made Up Your MIND???
I've voted for the following candidates:
'92 : Miriam Defensor-Santiago
(back then, she was as inspiring as Barack Obama. seriously!)
'98 : Joseph Estrada
(well, he was VP, Senator, Mayor, and (still is) a great family friend)
'04 : Bro. Eddie Villanueva
(a pure conscience vote; no way was I going for GMA,
And during all these past elections,
the surveys, specially those of SWS and Pulse Asia,
were very reliable, and ultimately, accurate.
If I recall correctly, FVR overtook Miriam in the homestretch;
too many people were convinced that she was a loose cannon.
Erap led all the way during the Philippine Centennial elections,
and won by a resounding landslide.
And '04 was too close to call, but then, The Great Garci happened.
So based on the most recent surveys from Pulse Asia & SWS,
which practically mirror each other's results,
Smartmatic f*ck-ups notwithstanding,
President Noynoy Aquino will take his oath of office this June,
and so will Vice President Mar Roxas.
A Great Majority of the Filipino People
seem to have made up their minds;
and despite the best efforts of Baby James,
and the constant whining of the NP crybabies,
we'll see much much less of the
for the next three years or so.
And that makes me very happy indeed.
Speaking of the Nationalistas,
I really was all set to vote for Bongbong Marcos,
owing to his fine achievements up in Ilocos Norte.
However, his most recent pronouncements in the media
are as gusty as the winds generating power in his windfarm.
I'm afraid that FM Jr. is really campaigning to revise history.
And that makes me very apprehensive indeed.
