“Who are you going to vote this May?” they ask me. “I’m not” is my curt answer. “Oops, we forgot. Geena is voting for POTUS!” Ha ha you faddy hoots. Now leave me alone.
The problem is I didn’t register. I was extremely busy months ago and wouldn’t want to waste a particular Saturday waiting in line for hours to be able to renew my privilege in selecting the next leaders who won’t be able to save our country anyway. The nation has for numerous generations been in deep shit and there’s scarcely light at the end of the tunnel especially for the grass roots. No, it’s not all the government’s fault; the people are to blame, too. Filipinos have been marked by certain character flaws which work to our very detriment: inside our territory we basically do not like being disciplined. Plus we can be too stubborn and dramatic.
In addition, the complications of lack of education or enlightenment have led to our unmanageable population growth and, for the lord of Batman, I don’t get why we go on electing and reelecting bird-brained movie/TV stars, useless over-the-hill politicians and keep building and supporting their political dynasties. Corruption rules to boot. Yes, we’re that lost and beyond hope.
Although if I had my pick, I’d want the tough willful Duterte guy to become the next president; The Philippines desperately needs an ultimate strong-arm chief executive right now.
In the other half of the globe, the recent update on Trump being ganged up (again) by Ted the puppet and Kasich the ick bugs me. And still, after all this time, I’m perplexed by the posture of many who go like “Oh I belong to the class of the intellectual elites, therefore, I must be anti-Trump.” The hypocrisy.
No matter what they say, I adore the man and am loyal to him. It pains me knowing they’re never allowing my favorite candidate that seat in the White House. I’ve no doubt he’s sincere in his mission to make America great again. If you’re a member of the “Never Trump” movement, we’d better not talk about it. I’ve already discussed enough my stand during my countless defense of the frontrunner on several sites. My ties with a long-time co-blogger and a new one had already been severed for that reason. If I had to make a choice, you know the billionaire would always win hands down.
I voice these things over here; it’s my blog. Comprende? 🙂

We do disagree on Trump, but I get why he’s likable. Some people don’t like what he’s saying, but they’ll vote for him because at least he’s straightforward. Honesty is something that’s needed in elected people, but it’s so damn rare.
Hi! I really thought I had repelled and sort of lost you because of my devotion to Trump. I still clearly remember when I posted comments on your site as a Hillary fan then. 🙂 Yes, despite Trump’s crazy antics, I find him quite likable and I guess a big part of it is his “what you see is what you get” persona. Nevertheless, I believe there’s a good chance he’ll be good for your country as a leader.
SB, I’ve totally no idea why your comment didn’t appear at once when you’d been here before as a commenter. It makes me happy to know you’re still around in spite of my being a hard-core Trump supporter. Thank you very much for dropping by.
I’d comment if I weren’t so indifferent to politics. 🙂
John Hayes indifferent to politics? hmm…. 😉
