My Random Election Thoughts

  1. I conducted a pre-election survey in one of my Yahoogroups. Gibo and Gordon tied for President while Roxas won for Vice-President. My analysis of this is that the group that participated were that of the thinking class. That is, they were never swayed with the ads and other campaigns. What they considered were the past performances that these people have accomplished.
  2. It took me 2.5 hours before I was able to cast my vote. Seeing how our government had embraced technology in order to provide speedier results, that 2.5 hour wait was well worth it.
  3. I voted for Gibo and Roxas. I believed in what Gibo stood for. Too bad his association being the Arroyo government's candidate may have affected the votes. Roxas? Hmmm...not really sure come to think of it
  4. Erap placed 2nd in the presidential race. This means we still have a lot to learn as a people. The masses are still lost in terms of getting a true grasp of the goings-on in the government.
  5. I agree with Gibo that our country is long overdue for a Constitutional Change. Many people have found ways to go around these laws.
  6. Gibo's advice to his supporters: "Do the best that [you] can do in [your] own field. We have an obligation to our country to do the best in our respective fields...fairly...legitimately."
  7. I hope Noynoy does a good job, lest he wants his parents to come back after him.
  8. Binay as VP? How the hell did he pull it off? Really amazing. I'm thinking that the Chiz Escudero endorsement ad did a lot of damage to Mar's campaign.
  9. I voted for Val Sotto for Paranaque Councilor. He was the only guy I know fairly well (from his TODAS and VST days).
  10. Except for some, the presidential and vice-presidential candidates for this term were a good batch. The mudslinging was expected but if you look at each of their credentials, they really did a lot of good (except for you-know-who).
  11. I voted for Pia Cayetano simply because she's a runner/triathlete. Anyone who can take care of his/her health is a good start.
  12. I voted for Miriam. We need a whistle-blower in there.
  13. Conceding is actually a very brave thing to do. Congrats to those who've done it so far!
  14. The missus is definitely going to be irritated since her hate-hate relationship for Kris will probably grow exponentially now that she is in Malacanang (which was probably why ABSCBN has 1 foot in there as well).
  15. Non-election thought: as per the missus' observation, Boy Abunda seems to be cheerier/happier evern since Kris left SNN. Tignan mo mabuti mamayang gabi.
  16. To Noynoy: I didn't vote for you. But I hope that these next 6 years you can prove me wrong. Otherwise, watch out. "Ang bise-presidente ko, may B."
