It’s been very heartening to get support from all over. Thank you.
More than anything, it should bring out the clear message:
It doesn’t matter who you’re voting for. We all know it will be a tragic day if NOYNOY AQUINO is elected as President of our hapless country.
I am sad that many of our countrymen — intelligent ones at that — have fallen into the yellow trap. I don’t have to tell you how they are lured by the artificial image on the screen that is Noy. Well, yeah, let’s review the selling points.
NOY IS CLEAN
NOY IS HONEST
NOY IS THE SON OF CORY AND NINOY
NOY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO BESMIRCH LEGACY OF HIS PARENTS
NOY IS A FISCALIZER
NOY WILL CONTINUE THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION
NOY STANDS FOR GOOD VERSUS EVIL
NOY IS AGAINST GMA
NOY IS AGAINST CORRUPTION
If we analyze, this is pretty compelling stuff — stuff for Peter Jackson movies, in fact. Why, we can make this into a trilogy.
The message, if you believe the fanatics, is that Noynoy Aquino is the MESSIAH.
The problem with this, of course, is that he’s not.
One of the more compelling arguments against Noynoy is this: IF PRESIDENT CORY HAD NOT DIED, WOULD YOU HAVE EVER CONSIDERED NOY AS PRESIDENT MATERIAL?
However, the comeback of the Noynoyistas will be just as strong: YES, AND THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT ABOUT CORY AQUINO VIS-A-VIS NINOY’S DEATH.
Okay (as favorite turncoat Ngoyngoyera Conrado de Quiros says): There’s the rub.
But, not to worry. The argument should not end there. There are sound responses to this kind of flawed reasoning — a reasoning that again hinges on emotion and ignores (sounds like ignoy) sound judgment.
> When Cory was made president, we lived in a different time — a time when we, indeed, could simplify the fight as between good and evil: between a homemaker and a tyrant. Today, the public is faced with a plethora of choices better than NOYNOY AQUINO. We are in a sound democracy — notwithstanding the excesses of the GMA administration — and we do not need to SETTLE for NOYNOY AQUINO.
> Since we are bringing up the subject of history, let’s take a closer look at NOYNOY AQUINO. He consistently harps about the sacrifices of his family, the legacy of his parents — and how he will continue the fight against corruption. PRAY TELL, NOY: What did you ever do in the past to prove you continued the fight against that? The presidency is not for those given who suddenly experience a “eureka” moment — as in “EUREKA, I CAN WIN!” Tell us and convince us why we should vote for you. What have you done in the past that shows you can run our country? Did you maximize the mandate given to you as a congressman and senator? DON’T GIVE US THAT FISCALIZER CRAP. Show us a tangible record. OH, I FORGET, YOU DON’T HAVE ONE.
To choose and vote for NOYNOY AQUINO is to unknowing deny ourselves a good president, yet again. After the enthusiasm and allure of yellow ribbons, interminable “L” signs, sloganeering, and the hysteria, the next president, if it is (GOD HELP US) Noynoy, needs to buckle down to work in Malacanang.
I know in my mind and heart that he is woefully unprepared for that task.
And we cannot afford that.
