after the elections, what now??

now that the election fever is over, all stupid election commercials done away with, and all promises will remain just that, promises, where to now, Pinoy?? do we hold a fiesta for our winners?? do we bring out all our best suits and dresses and hold a ball?? or do we clean up after them, tearing down and scraping all their campaign posters posted all over?? and will something better happen now?? can we expect changes in our government now that we have put into position all of those we thought capable??

unless something astounding and freakish happens to our senators and congressmen and mayors, the same things will happen over and over again… and by the same things, i mean:

  • our poor, which comprise almost 75% of our population, will remain poor and keep getting poorer… they will continue to live in shacks and eat only 1 meal a day, if even that… their children will continue begging for a few coins in the streets while their parents try to eke out a living… only 1 out of every 5 school-age children will be able to go to school… all the while, our senators and congressmen and mayors continue to fill their pockets with our tax money, living in plush mansions in Ayala Alabang, eating food bought with our money, and sending their children to schools abroad…
  • those of us with 4 or 5 year old cars will continue to drive along semi-paved roads full of ruts and potholes, while our despised esteemed senators and congressmen and mayors continue to zoom along traffic in their new Expeditions and BMWs preceded by a convoy of military personnel…
  • while so many of our countrymen ask for help from policemen and the law courts, our detested highly regarded senators and congressmen and mayors fuck with the little people, laugh at the courts, and waving their immunity at our faces… all the while getting protection from the the same policemen we little people pay with our hard-earned taxes…
  • and, while we all grind to earn a decent and honest living everyday of our lives, we continue to hate venerate our senators and congressmen and mayors by sending them abroad on junkets so that they can have a well-earned vacation from their lives of pomp and high-living…

what can we expect this time around??

judging by past experiences, and i have had 37 years of that, i’d say more of the same… hey, we can’t expect our disdained respected politicians to change overnight, can we?? we just have to simply let them have their space and do their own thing in their own time… the time will come when we will harvest our just dues… but this will not come anywhere near our son’s sons lives…

next elections?? be ready for the same obnoxious politicians playing their obnoxious commercials on TV, attacking each other, continue fucking with the little people, and winning because of cheating their charms and stupidity wit…

remember everyone, we deserve what we get…

Ciao, sweetie… 8)
