While the previous elections are a joke, the May 2007 Polls is the most blatant as yet - their main platform is the total obliteration of the opposing party and not the alleviation of the woes our country is stricken with. Deny it as they may, but this Election IS actually, and not a proxy, GMA-ERAP war.
Is Taguig-Pateros Representative, Allan Peter Cayetano employing the same tactics Senator Ping Lacson was using four years ago as a ploy to supersede his intentions for running as President? If so, this shows that this ambitious snotty-nosed brat of a representative is just using Mike Arroyo as a ticket for the senatorial post as he couldn't meet the administration's qualifications for choosing a senatorial bet. As Ping's supposedly ticking bombshell turned out as a dud, Cayetano would definitely lose his credentials if he couldn't prove his claim.
“There’s no law against political dynasties”, Erap. I hope he's kidding, but according to the 1987 Constitution ARTICLE II, DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES AND STATE POLICIES, Section 26. "The State shall guarantee equal access to opportunities for public service and prohibit political dynasties as may be defined by law". Alas, all political parties are violating the constitution, dynastyism is still prevalent in the Philippine Politics. What a farce, this opposition force is trying to project - defending the constitution against those who are calling for a change while they are also stepping upon it.
The May 2007 Polls is clearly a mockery at the expense of the Filipino People, as the aspirants in one way or the other disregard the frameworks of our constitution:
They clamor support from the Church, when section 6 of article 2 states that the separation of Church and State is clearly inviolable.
They form political dynasties which are self-serving anyway, and not to the interest of the people.
They violate the peace and order by calling out a revolution to topple out another head of state.
And finally, as a recount, the opposing parties are out there to protect their own interests, and not of the constituents while all the while they're proselytizing their actions as "para sa interes ng bayan".
