Two years from now and I would be 18 years old. Hell, what's with my age dude? It's my LEGAL AGE to VOTE! Though even I'm sixteen and a half but still if I had the chance to vote for the 2007 Elections, definitely this would be my senatorial line up:
[ a ] Kiko Pangilinan - He's a prolific law maker and he served the Philippines almost half a decade (or more) and he's a good family man. He follows his good principle as a law maker. K nah!
[ b ] Joker Arroyo - Joker Arroyo is an incumbent Senator who has earned a reputation as a human rights lawyer, anti-corruption advocate, and freedom fighter. He is running under the Kabalikat ng Malayang Pilipino (KAMPI) banner and is likewise a member of the pro-administration group TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) Unity. A graduate of the UP College of Law and the Ateneo de Manila University, he made a name for himself when he challenged before the Supreme Court the constitutionality of Proclamation No. 1081 imposing martial law. He has held various posts in the government service first as Executive Secretary in the Aquino cabinet from 1986 to 1992, then as Chairman of the Philippine National Bank, and as Executive Director for the Philippines of the Asian Development Bank from 1986 to1990. He has received various awards and commendations such as the Philippine Bar Association’s Most Distinguished Award for Justice. As a three-term Congressman for the 1st District of Makati from 1992 to 1998, he was consistently voted by media as Outstanding Congressman of the Year. He served as Lead Prosecutor during the impeachment trial of President Joseph Estrada in 2001.
[ c ] Ping Lacson - Well, I think one of his plans in the senate is to ban pork barrel. He said that this is the cause or the brink of corruption. Well that's true naman. I hope that his HOPE plan would be possible if he won the senatorial elections.
[ d ] Manny Villar - Sa sipag at tiyaga, diyan tayo umaasenso. Period. Well, he's a good law maker also and he had many experiences as a senator. A good basis on a prolific senator.
[ e ] Chiz Escudero - I'll vote him because he looks like Bamboo. No! seriously. He's a good senator and he had this mass appeal most especially to the youth.
[ f ] Alan Peter Cayetano - He belongs to the Cayetano clan - the clan of good law makers and he has a good family and education background. I think that he can be a good senator.
[ g ] Antonio Trillanes IV - Antonio Fuentes Trillanes IV is one of the leaders of the more than 300 junior officers and enlisted men who took over the Oakwood Premier in the Ayala Center, Makati City on July 27, 2003, tagged by the press as the "Oakwood Mutiny". He took up BS Naval Systems Engineering in the Philippine Military Academy, where he graduated Cum Laude. He has a Master's degree in Public Administration Major in Public Policy and Program Management from the University of the Philippines Diliman. He has 23 assorted merit medals, campaign ribbons and badges to his name. Trillanes is running under the Genuine Opposition banner. When elected, he plans to fight corruption, minimize poverty, improve the peace & order situation, and improve education, health, and social services.
You want change? . . He's your man.
[ h ] Noynoy Aquino -Benigno Simeón "Noynoy" Aquino III is on his third term as Representative of the 2nd District of Tarlac. He is Secretary-General of the Liberal Party and is allied with the Philippine political opposition. Aquino is also Chairman of the August Twenty-One Movement and has served as National President of the Philippine Jaycees. He finished his BA in Economics at the Ateneo de Manila University. He is the only son of Benigno Aquino, Jr., the popular opposition Senator under the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos, and former President Corazon Aquino. Like his late father, Aquino's main advocacy is a continuous fight for democracy. In this year's election, he is running under the Genuine Opposition ticket.
[ i ] Zosimo Paredes- Atty. Zosimo Jesus Mendoza Paredes II is Undersecretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). He is the former Executive Director of the Presidential Commission on the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFACOMM). His public criticism of the transfer of convicted rapist Daniel Smith, a US soldier, to the custody of the US Embassy later cost him his job.
I think this is enough. Well here are some senatorial Candidates whom I find WORTHLESS:
Prospero Pichay - It's simple as this: Pangarap kong yumaman pa ng husto
Pangarap kong makalikom ng pera sa aking pork barrel! Prospero Pichay, ikulong sa piggery!
Tessie Aquino-Oreta- The senate doesn't need you. The Japanese Entertainment Recruitment Agency for Entertainers BADLY NEEDS YOU! The Marcoses slained your brother, ba't nagchichikahan ka pa sa kanila?! Duh..
Joselito Cayetano- No offense but you can't win dude! Arggghhh!
Richard Gomez- Dump it! Such a L.O.S.E.R!!
Luis Chavit Singson- Jueteng Addicts would surely vote for him. No doubt, he'll legalized gambling!
Can't wait till I'm FUCKIN' EIGHTEEN!
