Yes, that is absolutely true. My father has been in politics for three decades serving as a Barangay Chairman for 3 terms and elected as Vice – Mayor in one of the towns here in our place. I, myself won as a SK Chairman in our barangay and I saw how tricky and dirty politics can be.
This coming 2010 presidential election is a chance for me to effect change in our society starting with my self as a Mindanao blogger. Gone are the days that we Mindanaons are considered second class citizen. I am encouraging you to visit Politicalarena.com . It is the Philippines’ first socio-political Networking Site. It serves as a venue for Candidates and Voters of Philippine 2010 Presidential Elections to communicate with each other.
I signed-up a free account yesterday and enjoyed reading the candidates political profile. Today, I have posted question to all presidential candidates on how will they solve the lingering insurgency problem in Mindanao . Let us see who among the presidentiables can convey the most convincing idea. I also joined the political forum on the topic “ What is the best way to choose our public official” . I enjoyed reading political issues too! What a great eye opener. What more? I have submitted my photo with a winnable presidential candidate ( but please, don’t get me wrong… he’s not my bet ,I just have the chance to attend his forum).
So guys, here is the chance for you to be heard and be part of a better Philippines. Register now.
