Hopeful

Let’s pretend that I care much about politics 😉

I was at the Edsa-Shangrila Hotel last Friday listening intently to the very young Senator Alan Peter Cayetano speak about the state of economy and education in the Philippines, among many others.

His speech, eloquently delivered, was full of hope and bright ideas. All the while I was thinking, “Does he really mean everything?” Sometimes I couldn’t help but be skeptical about pretty speeches laced with great promises.

But if Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano meant every word that he said in his speech, then I am happy. And I hope that all the young politicians are as driven, motivated, patriotic, and sincere as Sen. Cayetano seemed to me that day.

Wag sana silang magpakain sa kasalukuyang malalang sistema.

  1. When my reyna elena comes back, i have my political santacruzan hahaha!

    Going back to your thoughts, speeches are speeches, but sometimes, those are what we need from leaders. the ones who would give us hope that the world will be a better place if they are in power. Yet, given the so many bloody experiences we had with pinoy politicos who’s mantra is really nothing more than add more gold bars in their swiss accounts, we’re so done listening to all their rhetorics. What i believe we need to do is match their words with what they have done while they were in power and make a reasonable judgement as to whether they have the guts to deliver with the right ethics. With bloody ugly philippine politics mired in corruptions, it’s ethics and good public governance.

    vote for me.

    the 1st woman president of the philippines.
