My Line up
President: Roco (there's no such thing as a wasted vote people! Wake up people!)
Vice-President: Legarda (Loren over Noli? Anyday, sweetheart.)
1. Yasay (he should have made it in the last elections pa)
2. Lim (whom Ping should emulate IMHO)
3. Pimentel (such a gentleman, this one)
4. Anson-Roa (the anti-thesis to all the artistas running for office)
5. Mauricio (free legal aid from Atty. Batas)
6. Madrigal (she should get voted, if only for her tenacity in running for a seat. Oh yeah, Juday endorses her too, so she can't be all that bad :)
7. Cayetano (UP Law! Love your own, ika nga.)
8. Roxas (effective and gwapo. Need I still elaborate on why he has my vote?:)
9. Sonza (a probable Noli? I hope not...)
10. Chavez (the most dashing sol-gen this country has ever had. Sigh.)
That's about it. I'd rather vote for 10 people that I believe in than completing all 12 slots just for the heck of it. Although it might appear that I might have based some of my votes on qualifications other than the ability to serve (guilty!), I beg to differ. I believe that some beautiful and charismatic people do have the strength of character to hold public office. The voters just have to learn how to pick one bonbon from another.
Besides, how can you go wrong with Roxas and Chavez in office?
For Paranaque mayor, I'm going for Olivarez. Alma is just as corrupt as her husband was. Six years of the Moreno-Marquez tandem has made Paranaque into one stinking garbage pile. Enough!
So to the people who registered (yes Colleen, you do need to register to be able to vote :), go out and vote. To those who didn't, shame on you and do remember that you will have no moral ascendency to bitch and whine about the state of our country for the next six years. Yes, you won't even have that luxury, because you did not exercise your right to vote.
However, you can redeem yourself, and up your good karma in the process too. Just volunteer for poll watching or counting and you may be able to undo some of the bad karma now hovering around you. hehehehe
