So really its a waste of time..its just me..
I was in NAMFREL since the Batasan elections (before Cory ran)
up until recently. Your refusal to register and vote makes
COMELEC's job easier: ...easier for them to rig the election.
At least check muna whether your name is still on the list of
registered voters or not. If it still is, you'd better vote, or
someone else will use your "ballot" for you, inserting it in the
COC at the municipal/regional level.
If your name isn't on the list, then I can only appeal to your logic.
We have no one but ourselves to blame for the government we have.
We thus have no one but ourselves to blame for the laws we endure.
Things are so insane legislatively that it will take two generations
to generate new politicians with scruples AND intelligence.
It may take as long to generate a voting public that can boast
of the same minimums.
Too many idiots electing idiots, while defeatists sit it out.
P.S.: If you can't find candidates worth voting for, then run yourself.
I did once (barangay level nga lang), and it's not that hard.
Just by running, you force the tradpol opposite you to campaign
differently, and consider the issues you're running on. If you
win, you have the ear of the next higher tier of politicians...
Why not ask how BoG can try to pitch a Party-List candidate, eh?
The goal isn't so much advancing RKBA as it is preventing erosion
of our natural rights by legislative fiat.
