Some Things Stay the Same…

Amid the call of politicians for change and reform, some things never change.
Take, for example, politicians from the highest ranks promising heaven and earth to earn your support and esteem, only to find out that you are NOT important to them. I had an experience yesterday with a vice presidential candidate and his staff. I sent them a solicitation request for a fundraiser I organized for the JCM amounting to around Php 5,000.00. I sent the request last Monday. Only to find out that Friday, the request “cannot be traced”. Oh well… Is he getting my vote? No. And I urge you not to vote for him as well. He wants us to have discipline on the streets but he can’t even educate his immediate staff about handling paperwork.
Another example is a politician who wanted to garner my support for his partylist. At the onset he wanted us to work as volunteers, which was fine, since he was a dear friend to my family. And when the time came that I needed support for a community project, he said that “he does not have money right now since he’s going nationwide”. Oh well, no wonder you’re a bystander till now.
Dealing with national politicians is a horrific experience. I really hate it.
I wish it was midterm elections.
Peace. Some things REALLY stay the same.
