GORDON-BAYANI ON MAY 10
I am not here to campaign for my bets. I am not even writing this to tell you why your respective candidates suck and why mine should win. Isn’t this post a little to late for that? I really am just here to proclaim to the whole internet that I am supporting the Gordon-Bayani tandem and I will proudly cast my votes for them this May 10.
I didn’t just decide on this overnight. A couple of months ago, we actually did an episode on Talking Heads about the presidentiables, where we compared them side by side and objectively looked at their characters and credentials. The following months were all about getting as much info on them as I can and needless to say, Mr. Gordon won my heart- and mind (sorry, not an emotional voter here).
MY GUYS in a lol-worthy campaign material
Gordon has a strong background in public service. I am not even going to enumerate his achievements because there’s Google for that. More than the bills and the laws, you actually have seen what he’s done. I don’t care if you’ve authored/passed 163749592 laws, if I don’t see the results, it’s nothing. And that’s what I like about Bayani, too. Call him a jackass, a crass motherfucker, an opportunistic businessman oh, like Villar, you mean? but seriously, that man had made things happen. Tangible results, I should say. And yes, those pink urinals included.
Of course, I also liked Dick Gordon’s platform. I liked Gibo’s, too, don’t get me wrong (he’s my 2nd choice, in fact) but I guess it’s just a matter of preference… Gordon’s key points are education and health and not too much on national defense. I’m not saying let’s not give importance to the armed forces but if kids are empowered by education and are not malnourished, why would they rebel against their own country? Or something… (and demmet 40k/month for public school teachers?! bjxkabkdbekf Now we’re talking! I can teach in Kaligayahan Elementary school kthnxbi.)
Character-wise, I’d like to believe that these two have what it takes. They could’ve gone the trapo route but at the end of the day, they do have a vision. A goddamn vision, which is the most basic requirement for a leader. Sure, they don’t have the best personalities in the world, but even Madonna was a bitch. Hell, go to any huge corporation and their CEO is most likely made of terror. What I’m trying to say is… we’re looking for a leader who can inspire AND act. If you want someone with a pleasing personality, go to your local fast food chain. Everyone’s smiling there.
This chart is like your weighing scale. It does not lie.
I have many reasons why I’m not voting for the other presidentiables. I’m not voting for Noynoy because quite honestly, I won’t want him to be my father. Or boyfriend *cringe*. I feel like he can’t even protect me, much more, my country. Plus, can anyone check if this guy still has vertebral column? And other than not being corrupt, what had he done and what has he to offer? I’m not voting for Manny because I can smell trapo from him from 500 meters away. I am mostly offended by his promise of eliminating poverty, to tug on the masa’s hearts. To quote Dick Gordon, “even Jesus wasn’t able to eradicate poverty!”. Plus, poverty isn’t a problem- it’s merely as symptom to a bigger problem, which is disunity. His campaign is fucking insulting to the poor, the middle class, and hell, even to Gretchen Baretto. I’m not voting for Gibo because when I weighed my options, Gordon just proved to be a better candidate for me. Maybe next time for Mr. Teodoro, when he gains more experience. And I’m not voting for Era- wait. If I meet anyone who’s actually gonna vote for Erap, I will pour water on his head and leave it under the sun so he can grow a brain.
Most of the people I know (if not all, except for a few) are voting for either Gordon or Gibo, which I don’t mind, really… But how come they’re really, really, really down in the surveys? You mean, they don’t ask and count the thinking middle class anymore? Sheesh.
As I said on my Facebook, I believe that even if Gordon and Bayani won’t be able to fully change the country, they can change the Filipino’s mindset, which for me, is more important. I will vote for them because I LOVE MY COUNTRY – not because they are “tunay na mahirap”, not because they’re sons of former presidents and certainly not because they’re womanizing drunkards.
Also, Gordon and Bayani have “bayag”. They’re probably made of steel, too.
