Homestretch Showdown: Grace vs. Rody and Chiz vs. Bongbong

duterte_poe_marcos_escudero

With roughly a month to go, I guess many of you have already “cast in stone” the names of who you plan to vote this coming May 2016 presidential elections. But just a final word of advice from someone who’s “been there done that”: Don’t waste your vote guys! You will only regret seeing your vote go down the drain for having supported a highly qualified yet clear loser. Surveys are showing it’s gonna be a homestretch battle between the Yellow Camp’s spare tires and the Iron Camp’s visionary intellectuals. The final gladiatorial showdown will be Grace vs. Rody and Chiz vs. Bongbong (the links clearly showing them to be on top of the charts). So you might as well dismiss the others to be nuisance candidates, like those distracting flies annoying you during a picnic at the beach.

Survey Says

If you’ve tried betting in a horse race as a clueless newbie before, it can be quite disappointing. Things happen so fast with just a few thoroughbreds going neck to neck at homestretch and the rest of the pack lagging hopelessly behind. It’s either you wished you had a time machine, or wished you could change your bet on the fly during the final leg of the race.

But thank goodness political elections are not like horse races. You can actually cast a pretty informed intelligent vote based on the most winnable/viable candidates as we approach D-day by simply looking at the surveys. And in elections, you can change your choice and make a final decision based on who the leading contenders are in the crucial “last 2 minutes.”

Surveys being sample tests have some margin of error, which is why they often say there is a statistical tie between two candidates. It’s much like getting a sample of water from a pond and counting the bacteria; you can make pretty accurate conclusions about the rest of the pond simply based on the small cup you scooped up – weather it’s safe to drink or not.

So why waste your vote on MDS when she is clearly and consistently way down on all surveys? Ask yourself: if I had the chance to change my bet during a horse race, would I choose the horse that is at the No.5 position with only 5 seconds left – well yeah, fat chances can be miraculous. But use your logic man! What’s your God-given common sense in your coconut for?

Just because MDS is the most qualified both intellectually and in experience doesn’t mean she’s the one to vote. Unfortunately, this is a democracy (not a meritocracy) we have here where popularity is a huge if not the main factor. You have to fit your vote in with all the other voters – most of which are bobotantes who don’t think as intellectually as you do.

More detailed surveys show that each candidate actually leads in their respective region, whether it be NCR/Balance Luzon, Visayas or Mindanao. Many in Luzon prefer Poe because they may be happy with the status quo (Luzon receiving the Lion’s share of the pie), but mostly left-out disgruntled people in Mindanao want change – which is why they back Duterte. The polar opposite difference these two stand for was recently highlighted in Ilda’s recent article.

Radical Development and Unity for the next 30 years

You who are familiar with my posts here at GRP all know that I’m for Iron Rule to bring back discipline and for the eradication of the two great evil twin towers in Philippine politics and society: corruption and incompetence. It just so happens that Rody DU30 and what he stands for almost perfectly aligns (“almost” because I still want Algebra in schools) with my own personal wish-list “platform” for this country:

  1. changing the oligarchy-protecting constitution to allow better services and more jobs to come in,
  2. moving away from Manila-centric development,
  3. restoring the use of English in public communication,
  4. raising up real home-grown industries involving advanced materials and technology,
  5. stamping out criminality and the utter lack of discipline in every level of society – which are reflections of the Pinoy’s poverty-inducing dysfunctional squatter mentality.

As we see the curtains close on the 30-year reign of the Yellow camp (led by the triumvirate of Pinoy zombification: Cory, Kris & PNoy), the country is ripe for a big transition into a new 30-year era, moving along the same path taken by Singapore – a goal that can best be achieved through tough leaders with real backbones, unquestionable intellect and lofty visions, considering how lame-duck dysfunctional Pinoys have grown to become under the sham Yellow democracy they have enjoyed for some time now.

Joining Forces for the Common Goal

In conclusion, those of you supporting MDS should just add your weight onto the winnable candidates of Iron Camp. By uniting to lump all our coins together to back a candidate that represents our best chances for radical change in this country, we can tip the scale of the balance in favor of our common desire for real and lasting change.

I’m quite positive we are headed to become a Singapore-class state; it’s just a question of “when”: do you want to take a hundred years? – well go ahead with Poe-Escudero. But if you’re in a hurry like me (coz I still want to be alive to see the day), let’s back up winnable (I mean winnable!) iron-fisted visionary intellectuals. Enough is enough! This time, the next 30 years should be for the Filipino masses who have suffered for too long, not just a few happy dudes in coats and ties enjoying their red meat and wine as they watch the carnage from their ivory towers.

I am saddened by the poor prospects of either Grace or Rody being president. They will squander all the great progress that Noynoy has achieved for our country.

Our best hope for continued prosperity is to amend the constitution and let Noynoy run a 2nd term. Once he finishes his term, hopefully, MLQ3 will be ready to fulfill his destiny of being a great president.

Another YellowTard in delusion. Progress? I have not seen any progress…maybe you are talking about the Squatters in Metro Manila and urban cities. Or the Aquino’s Hacienda Luisita. Or the runaway inflation… Maybe, the proposed BBL Law; the DAP; PDAF; Pork Barrel Bribery, Feudalism, etc…

Reality is distorted, by viewing, thru a Yellow colored glasses. You can be deluded, and suffer from :”Jaundiced Reality”…

WE THE PEOPKE IS IN NEED OF A UNIFYING PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT AND ONLY MDS/DU30-BBM SHARE THE SAME VISION! ENOUGH OF THE YELLOW OLIGARCHY-COMMUNIST IDEOLOGIES PRETENDING TO BE THE HEROES OF 1986! THE PEOPLE ARE NOW AWAKEN FROM REALITY!!!

This is amazing. Completely forgetting the utter disgarceful governance pre-Aquino ,dating back to 1965(all the way to 2016,that is 51+ years amigo,not 30) all the way up to and including Aquino that has virtually and literally raped the Filipino nation of all of its wealth and has concentrated that STOLEN wealth in the hands of 10-15 families/dynaties and their cronies control. To make matters worse, the lacadaisical attitude taken towards the Son of a Tyrant, a Tyrant that stole the ENTIRE WEALTH OF THE FILIPINO NATION for over twenty years, and that Son’s nonchalant attitude of inheriting that fortune and… Read more »

@Joliet Jake : Let me emphasise, Salvador Laurel writes about the “tyrant” ( From the Lips of Dying President) you were referring to before his last breath, and the excerpts: “Please tell Mrs. Aquino to stop sending me her relatives. They are proposing and asking so many things. All I want is to die in my country…I will run over 90 percent of all my worldly possessions to our conversation to our people. I ask only 10 percent for my family.’ “Just let me die in my own country. I want to be buried beside my mother.’ “His breathing had… Read more »

Your comment, Paquito, is GOLD. It is not yellow of the Cory kind. She ushered in an age, which has become a cure worse than the disease; thus, poisoning the well by killing whatever desire Filipinos may have had for genuine revolution. The tragedy is that the Cory Magic could have been put to good use, but time has a way exposing the truth. The double tragedy is that it is her son who laid bare to all that it wasn’t magic at all, but a plain simple trick. Cory could only be blind to the plight of the people… Read more »

YO PAQMAN, if you are so dumb as to keep electing the same people that have been robbing the nation of its wealth for the last 50+ years, you deserve to robbed AGAIN, and AGAIN, and AGAIN. FACE IT, electing the same people that well respected magazines in other countries refer to the government of the Philippines as ‘The Biggest Criminal Syndicate in S.E. Asia’ is madness,excruciatingly moronic and then some. Comatose victim: The Multi-Tens of Billions of $$$ accounts that were transferred out of the Philippines is enough CA$H to influence a court anywhere on the planet,especially in a… Read more »

@ Joliet Jake: I’ve never said nor campaigned to any politicians mentioned and to tell you honestly, I already stopped my right to suffrage since those kind of politicians joining the election. What I have replied to is your (old) accusations that never materialise, and if you have the guts to prosecute the Marcoses, go on with that multi-billion dollars alleged “NAKAW”! As my previous comment, Marcos wants to RETURN THE MONEY (90% of alleged “NAKAW” in Billions of Dollars as per Guinness Book World of Records) for the country, but refused! So, in your timeline, is it exactly 50… Read more »

I am well aware of the institutionalized corruption dating back to 1947. Just because I do not mention it doesn’t mean I do not know about it. Stick your insults up your ass.

The tyrant of ’65 was replaced by another tyrant and so on….I GET IT….and have known since before you were born,Son.

What “lackadaisical attitude”? Can’t you see it’s warranted? Martial law is legally impossible. Have some faith in Cory’s constitution. It will never ever ever happen again!

The writer must have a totally ‘band-wagon-mentality’; must be devoid of critical thinking and individuality; or, is a committed booster of Duterte and Marcos. He must think, as well, that readers and contributors here are absolute dupes. Audacity and ‘chutzpah’ I’ve seen in this pages.. and this ranks way up there.

There is only One Opposition, and that is Miriam. Both Binay and Duterte jump-started their career through Cory’s appointment after 1986 Edsa disaster. Poe-Llamanzares was a Noynoy appointee also. People wake up, you are being duped to swallow the same yellow bull crap over and over again.

I’ve always been the kind of guy who thinks that a vote for the one you want to elect is never a wasted vote. That said, I’ve always thought of this in the context of a “bobotante” faced with a competent politician and an artista (think 2010: Gordon or Teodoro versus Erap). But in this case, I suppose picking one of two candidates makes sense.

Vote with your mind…not with your emotion or heart. The candidate, you elect must have :good track record; you must know, his or her accomplishments; his or her platforms; and must be a Problem Solver. He or She must be innovative to form a good team to solve our pressing problems…he or she must have the good ability to lead , and work with others.

Good managerial experience is a plus…

This is, like I said, the “piss off” vote. People are so pissed off, that they’ll vote the perceived opposite to the current incompetent admin and its anointees. Like this thing I heard: someone voted Nancy Binay in to spite the Yellows. The piss off vote.

Politics is good; when it works properly, disagreements get solved without people beating each other up. But when a regime knows its days are numbered, there’s always the chance it may use its position to change the rules and make the debate it is losing irrelevant.

There’s going to be a VP debate on April 10 in UST. Chiz vs BBM? Bring it on! Si Chiz magaling magtalumpati like Poe. But not speaking based on experience will still make one’s speech hollow. Hopefully when the VP candidates speak, people will also compare it or hold on to facts.
