After All: Election 2010

This is the moment that we have been waiting for. After three long months, we have finally come to the end. Three months of getting to know the candidates, one day of (formally) deciding who will earn our precious votes.

Before anything else though, allow me to say my piece.

As what the Catholic Church teaching says, VOTE ACCORDING TO YOUR CONSCIENCE. This for me is the best tool so we could choose the right candidates. Our conscience, I believe, will always bring us to what is right.

Money is a great temptation. When really tempted, receive it, but still vote the one who deserves your vote. DO NOT SELL YOUR VOTES. Filipinos are educated and smart people. Do not allow money to ruin it.

Let us all BE OBSERVANT. When crisis arises, do not just keep your silence. When you see people doing illegalities, speak up. Go to proper authorities and report whatever you have seen or heard. It is the perfect time to care for your votes, to care for the good of everybody.

As for politicos.

I will salute those who won't use 3Gs: Golds, Goons, and Guns. BE A GOOD EXAMPLE. Start the change that you have been preaching all throughout your campaigns now. DO NOT THREATEN people just so their votes will be casted for your own benefit.

We know how much money you have. We know a lot of you have the capability to buy votes. But please, STOP VOTE BUYING.

Since you have started the game, you know that two ways are waiting for you on the finish line. It's either you win or lose. If you happen to be on the latter, ACCEPT YOUR DEFEAT. Show your sportsmanship and just move on. It will be best though if you will support the ones who win.

As for those who will win, prove to us that PROMISES AREN'T MADE TO BE BROKEN. Make sure that once you are seated at whatever position you will land, you do your job for the greater good and not for personal gain.

May 10, 2010 is a date to remember. We've waited for six long years. Do not let this chance pass by. Go and vote for a leader that has the values this nation needs. A leader that has dreams for this country. A leader that won't just lead, but knows how to follow as well.

As the song goes, "We're all in this together." No one's going to care for this nation but us. No one's going to love this nation but us. So let our votes and voices be counted.

God bless us.

Just Before Monday

It’s exactly seven days to go before the 2010 national elections. Most probably most of us are excited on what’s going to happen on that day and the days after. This is the first time that we are on automated elections. So expect both the best and the worst from it.

Just awhile ago, I was watching the news, and it scares me that there are some troubles going on with regards to the PCOS machines, which will count our votes come May 10. According to the news, based on the mock election held today on different venues, some machines did not count or recognize the votes specifically on the municipal levels.

The COMELEC and the Smartmatic said that they are going to give attention to these issues. Probably they said, the paper used for the sample PCOS counting was the one to be blamed. Whatever the reason is behind the failure of the machine to count votes, it is still scary.

I do not want to pre-empt what’s going to happen on May 10, but let’s face it. What if all the other machines have the same problem? Does this mean, the probability of declaring Failure of Election is high? The time is short. Manual counting could be on the rescue, but like what I have said, we have too little time.

This is going to be my second time to vote. First time though on the national level. Just like everyone else, I do not want my vote to be put to waste. This election is not just a hot one but definitely a record breaking history. Let it not be a history of failure though, but a history of success.

God bless this nation, and may we all be guided by the Holy Spirit so we’d vote wisely and according to our conscience and not anything else.
