To all you both old and senile people who still have the ways of the wicked, stop poisoning the youth especially this coming elections. You had your chance when you were once us but now times have change, our economy grows weak, people in dismay and poverty is already on its zenith level. What had been done from the past should have been change on the future. Do not give us lessons and teachings that only may lead this country into ruins. Some of you speak of wisdom but only few remains to be true. Have you not gone tired of the wickedness that already costs us a bounty of people to starved to death? Have you not considered your lies and deceits of which you spoke of the promises you have already broken? You speak of justice.. but I see it only as justice for yourself. Do not underestimate our capabilities to think and reason. You want our votes is it not because we compromise a hefty population? For that let the youth decide on their own what the future of this country lies ahead. Your power to shine is fading but ours has just started. Give them a chance on their own decision and give faith.

WOW.....are you throwing mud, cowdung at the old and wise veterans? One spiteful curse from these senior citizens will bring tornadoes, hurricans that will cause disaster. My mom used to tell me that a curse from elders especially parents on their children will leave a deep black marks in their life. Give them the utmost respect and they will leave their earthly existence in peace besides will give their sweet blessing for the future of the country. I know that because the elections are nigh,the citizens are going to be subjected to more nonsense than usual. But don't pin on the veterans. There are so many reasons why a country is prosperous but her citizens are suffering. The economic prosperity of the country is not distributed evenly and only those in power and its cronies are benefiting most. But the above campaign is going to bring the uprising of the young and energetic voters to create a wind of change in your country's administration. Good to taste the strong calibers of the younger generations. Your country definitely need new blood injected in the political scenario to bring it to the next century.

I guess you are targeting the old wicked people so I would have to agree with you on that. I would also like to include those wicked young ones as well. I guess all wicked people regardless of age should be ashamed of what they are doing.

the youth should be careful in choosing their candidate. they should listen to their judgment rather than to other people trying to control them.

Well, I agree with you in some point. Stop poisoning our mind. However,we need to learn something from old and senile people. they have rich experience. As they are old, they can not update the information that they treated as weird thing or impossible thing before. With development of technology, the impossibility become possibility.we need to absorb the idea of sophisticate in selectivity.

Although your post is very general and does not pinpoint who you are referring to I think the general message in here is ideal to all of us voters.

There are many corrupt and senile politicians who poisons not just the youth but also the poor. Continuous voters education and discipline will help the people being fooled to know the truth.

i think that everyone has a right to their own opinion no matter how old they r and no matter who they r. it sounds like ur pissed off.. im not sure what the philippines is like.. i have never been there. but maybe u need to travel around and see other places if philippines is not the place for u. if its the people then u can go other places and have some time to urself if u want.. u can do anything u want. i hope it all works out for u.

hi nykel88 as an elderly American I feel sad that you only blame the elderly who have w ays of the wicked,isn't there also wicked young one and inbetween ones. As I do not know much about the situation in the Phillipines I hesitated to stick my five cents in here, but always feel sad when we older people are always blamed for the mess that our respective countries are in as though only older people think wrong or do wrong things. I just want to say nykel88 are you going to grow old someday and what will you do when some brash young brat charges into you calling you mean and wicked and all sorts of vile things?I am really glad that I do live in the US as we are still not as bad off as some of the other countries from what I have heard. hope you do get young blood into your government to bring it out of poverty and help people to get better jobs right at home.

Politics!!! who brought it all up? Wouldn't we be better off than have a politician as a ruler of our nation? Before the evolution of politics which has its sterm in the bible, how are we ruled?

I used to feel that way. And there were good reasons for it! But now in my country, the shoe is on the other foot. Our young people have elected a mesmerist that hypnotized them with buzzwords and empty promises, who talked a lot and said nothing of substance. Now he is ruining our country. Some older people voted for him, too, pulled in by desperation. Please do not discount the wisdom of elders. You can tell if they are truly wise if they keep their mind open and do not adhere to one party over another. If they look at a potential leader and weigh his character as well as what he/she is saying without regard to which party they belong to, this is a person you can trust. Usually. And remember, nothing is free. Government taking care of you is just like someone locking you in a cage. Be independent, take care of yourself and don't be afraid of hard work--freedom can't be bought but it's the most precious thing on earth. Only politicians can take it away but they need your consent. Vote carefully.
