The Filipino And Dynastic, Patronage Politics

Sometimes you people can really show off your stupidity, complete with all the bells, whistles and fanfare! Patronage politics is exactly what ruined the country! For nearly 30 years, every Aquino, Binay, Trillanes, Honasan, Poe, Ramos and Enrile you idiots voted for — and continue voting for — simply because of their names, have so destroyed the country. All the while, improving their own lives, 10-fold.

Why? Because you people have a unhealthy hero fetish!”

You’re so wrapped up in the the heroic Aquino, Liberal Party, Manny Pacquiao idiocy, you completely ignored or overlooked what their potential goals, platforms and future visions for the country were. If they ever had any to begin with. Instead of demanding the format of “true campaigning” from your political hopefuls, you foolishly flock like geese to collect some free t-shirts, food, money and other shit that you and your family don’t need. And then feeling like the typical, 1-day millionaire you’ll always be, home you go.

Thanks to your idiocy, here is some of the latest bullshit within your political arena:

  • The Binay family, and their “alleged” overpricing of some buildings in Makati. As well as farms and other unexplainable forms of personal wealth they refuse to account for.
  • National Police Chief Alan Purisima and his unexplainable mansions in Camp Crame and Nueva Ecija.
  • And of course there is the Abads which, at last count has 9 family members at some of the highest levels of government finance, yet continues to deny nepotism.

Why is that? Year after year — or should I say, “decade after decade” — do you idiots continue to elect shysters of this caliber to positions of power, only to watch them rape the nation cold. And then toss the remains into the poverty ditch?

What can I do?

You know? That almost always seems to be the same, lame and stupid question most of you give? If you don’t know the answer by now, then you have no right on God’s green Earth, to complain if i call you stupid.

Christ man!!! DO NOT VOTE!!

It’s that easy people. If you don’t like any of the political hopefuls, Don’t vote! If you don’t like the Automated PCOS bullshit. Don’t vote! If you are not sure who to select. Don’t vote! There is not a single law written anywhere that requires any of you to vote. Voting is a right and a privilege. Nothing more. You can go your entire life without ever casting a vote. And nothing will happen. Nor will anyone condemn you.

Now! The decision not to vote carries some responsibility with it. And this — more than anything — is where most of you fail. You need to take the time to do some homework on your candidate(s). Whether he/she is seeking a Senate or Congressional seat. Or something as simple as a Barangay position. Do some homework on these individuals. What are their future plans? Do they have goals set for the near and far future? Do they have any platforms they stand by.

Or are they running simply because they are related to an incumbent politician. Or they are a famous athlete or celebrity. It is these reasons alone why so many assholes are sitting in power positions, getting richer. While you go deeper into the poor house, and complain about them for another 3 years. Simultaneously ignoring the hardcore fact that is was YOU who put that same asshole into power because you were too fucking lazy to do your homework.

And the funniest part? They know full and well, that is exactly how they will win. Your weakness for free shit. And your laziness when it comes to checking up on them.

So is it safe to assume on my part, that just like Nancy Binay, you’ll give Ai Ai Delas Alas a Senate seat in 2016.

As an ExPat living in the Philippines. I have found it relatively fun and exciting to have been given the opportunity to live among such wonderful people.
