How To Choose From the Presidential Candidates
December 6, 2015 8:25am CST
I've been reading so many heated arguments about the coming presidential election next year. I'm not sure if the original creator of each post are paid by the party of that candidate to boost his/her candidacy through social media. But one person claimed that he never met the candidate personally, but the way he does his remarks and posts that he makes it seems that either he knew the candidate personally and truly believes in that candidate or he is a paid PR man. Another that I noticed is, the some of those who posts comments are clearly biased on their candidates... ignoring whatever is said against their candidates.. which some are not actually true but some I know that they are true (but very hard to prove unless you have first hand information). Somehow I pity those who refuse to see the other side of their candidate. A Coin has two sides! - They always have. Now, most politicians wants people to see only one side of this coin, the good side! They would try very hard to hide the opposite side. Eventually though it would show up sooner or later. So how do I choose my next president? 1. I will choose the person who bravely shows both sides of his coin... The good things that he/she has done, and doesn't hide the less desirable things (to put it lightly) that he/she has done, and still might do once he/she sits in the office. By admitting the undesirable things, it could mean that it 2. I will definitely NOT choose those, who's bad side has been exposed already but keeps denying it. 3. I will NOT choose also those who shows only the good side and tries so hard to hide the other side. They will appear so clean... their reputation untainted and no one knows they ARE hiding something... It's like a coin with heads on both faces or tails on both... it means it's a FAKE coin. For me this characteristic is the scariest of them all... How about you.. how will you choose your next president?

They all have weakspots @jrlcentral and right now even though I'm getting huge approval of that former davao mayor. I still need to see these debates, and forums to weight on my final decision to vote. But as you can see, even these recent events the MEDIA is doing it's bias manipulation again. so, we better not believe every bad issue we see on tv and internet.

That is so true @Letranknight25. Times like these, media people are no longer 100% reliable. I personally knew a radio reporter who was constantly lambasting a political figure and his party on his program. Then all of a sudden,during the campaign period of one of the previous elections, I heard nothing from him but praise on that same political figure. Later I learned that he is no long connected to the radio station and already in the payroll of that politician..
