On Politics

Political rallies, impeachment proceedings, blah blah blah!

Why can’t the elected government officials just do their friggin jobs and focus on the take off of our economy? I am not a political analyst [nor dream of becoming one] but what I have observed these days [or years for that matter] is the never ending bickering of those holier-than-thou, pure-as-snow, blemish-free government servants [and to think civil servant is an overstatement.]

Come on people, instead of jabbing your face in front of the TV for a mini scoop by shooting out vitriol to the current administration, why not start to fold the hem of your long sleeves and take a closer look at your own respective work—the supposed vocation you swear to do, remember?

I’m not saying otherwise to be blind, should any news of corruption erupt, but, can’t we do that in a more civilized manner like letting the judiciary branch of our government to deal with it instead of gathering our poor to protest in the street? Not only that it causes much discomfort to us [taxpayers who pay for you] but it does not in any way provide a long term solution.

Make a road map to the development of your constituents by mobilizing the workforce of each jobless Filipinos.

Just laying plans to minimize the effect of poverty will occupy your time, mind you. So instead of plotting a mindless charade to the government, why not start to actually “serve” the people.

Be proactive by being a part of the holistic process of economic change rather than making yourself a heavy baggage to be carried.

It’s a shame that we still consider our country as a Christian nation when the morals and ethics of our institutions are at an all time low.

…just thinking aloud!

On this I agree with you. Corruption, political killings, etc. are all criminal acts and should be handled by the justice system. That is the proper process. Followed by political and administrative inquiries to find out the root causes of the problems and corrective measures be implemented. That's is how a truly functioning Democratic government evolve from mediocrity to greatness. We didn't start where we are now. But through proper governance and continuous process of learning from our mistakes and the hard collective efforts of all not to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

the problem with most politicians is they prioritize their party's interest and then shift their focus from party to self come election time. the people are always set aside.
