Do you think there is till hope for the Philippine Government? Do you think the present administration is a very corrupt government? What can you say about the up coming election? What side are you in? Adminstration or opposition?

Our politics is hopeless, it's going us nowhere. Most especially now a lot of showbiz people are running for senators. . So pissed off. ("o")

as for hope, i don't know. corrupt yes, my taxes are sky high but i don't feel secure in our economy, even thoug they say it's better this year blah... the upcoming election is a time to... earn? lol! i don't know, i'd vote for individuals, not for whole gangs(what am i supposed to call them anyway?) the thing they did to allan peter cayetano is really funny. haha, poor guy. he's smart, but he gets in the admin's way a lot. he's getting my vote-i'd gladly write all of it

there's nothing we can do with our government anymore. we could only hope that the next generation won't give the people headaches as what we are getting now. we can only hope that showbiz personalities might wanna think twice before running and that manny pacquiao be disqualified from the elections. i love him but what can he truly do to the congress? if not for the corrupt advisors that surround him, he wouldn't actually have the courage to run. i hope this election we will make better choices.

There's always hope. ^_^ The present administration is bloody corrupt, and everyday I watch the news I wail and gnash my teeth - reason why I'm looking at the upcoming elections with gusto. I always urge others to vote, and I'm preparing my list already. I don't care for parties - they all tend to switch, anyways. I'm voting for those who I know will be responsible enough, those who are worthy, to be called leaders of this country. And I believe we still have those people. I'm planning to volunteer as a poll watcher again. Bloody computerized system's still not here. *sighs* So yeah, there's still hope! As long as there are people like us who are concerned about the welfare of this country, there will always be hope. \m/^_^

as the popular pinoy saying goes "habang may buhay may pag-asa". so i keep hoping that the people in our government would somehow grow a conscience and start serving the people who have put them in their positon rather than serving their own selfish interests. i also hope that the people would wise up and vote those persons who are truly deserving of their posts. we should use our right of suffrage responsibly to at least make a difference in our country. so this coming election vote wisely. i know this seems hard considering that most of the candidates running for office are self-serving b*****ds but i think there are still some who are sincere in their desire to serve our country and its people...

i registered but i aint gonna vote to either parties or should even vote anyways. we've been thru a lot of "changes" already and nothing seemed to work. its not that im not practicing my rights as a Filipino but then again, the question would have been...do these politicians really care for our country? if none of them does, why should i?

One can only hope we get a government that really cares about the people. The way things are going now, I wouldn't be surprised if we get a coup within the year. Despite all the things wrong with our country though, I'm staying here. Proud to be pinoy. Heck we're bound to get it right sooner or later lol.
