New Politics Presidential Candidate Nick Perlas Suggests Better Noynoy Aquino Path to Presidency


I am enlightened by environmentalist Nicanor Perlas' assessment that a unity brought about by a common vision and strategic agenda for the Philippines is longer-lasting than a unity against a common enemy, which is what is actually happening now with the unification of some presidentiables giving up their candidacy to give way to Noynoy to bring down the Arroyo camp candidate.

His article also revealed to me why I am still apprehensive with Noynoy's candidacy. The questions which are at the back of my mind are: Is the Liberal Party trapo? Or, at least, are there LP members who are trapo? What is the assurance that if Noynoy would win as president, some LP members would not actually be "running" the Office of the President? What is Noynoy's vision and strategic agenda for the Philippines and how does he plan to lead the country to such goals?

Anyways, he had just recently made the decision to run for the presidency. Let us give him time to sort out his plans for the Philippines. One important thing with him is that he is the presidentiable with the purest of intentions.

Nonetheless, read Nick Perlas' sensible take on Noynoy Aquino's candidacy and the kind of unity the Philippines needs by clicking Filipino Voices...

The next election will be my first time to vote but it doesn't matter much because I don't really care about voting. It gets cheated anyways.

I used to have this attitude too, feeling hopeless for our country. But if we continue to be indifferent, what will happen to our country? All the more it will go to the dogs if we let the dogs run it. Atty. Alex Lacson, in his book 12 Little Things Every Filipino Can Do To Help Our Country, quoted John F. Kennedy with this saying, "The people always get the government they deserve." That is why the "8th little thing" in his book he suggested is - "during elections, do your solemn duty."

Good luck on your first time to vote, Nathan. And pls care and pls vote intelligently.
