My First and Last Political Post

This is going to be my last post about anything about politics. I used to be passionate about these things but I do not need the drama of arguing for or against a certain candidate. I learned that the hard way a long time ago.

Here’s the plain and simple truth of it. At the end of the day, if you’re passionate about a certain candidate, you’re already decided as to who you’ll vote for come May 2016. Nothing I say or anybody else will convince you otherwise unless you get a super compelling argument to change your vote. Just like you probably won’t be able to convince me to change mine.

On the other hand, if you’re still undecided, then nobody should rag on you about it. That means you’re still weighing your options. That means you’re still looking at every possible angle before you decide. That makes you better than most voters who blindly follow their bets.

Here’s the deal though. Voting for a particular candidate does not make us superior to anybody else nor is anyone else inferior to us for voting for a different candidate. They are making their own decisions based on what they feel is right. Unless we have quantifiable proof that they sold their votes, we do not have the right to question a person’s morality or intelligence based on who their voting for. At the end of the day, we all want the same thing: the wellbeing of the Filipino people. Who gets us there is all a matter of perspective.

  2. I want to agree with this, I really do 🙂 And I usually would but then we have Donald Trump making us all look like hateful racists in the US 😦

  3. Trump tends to do that. I shudder at what America will become if he wins. Of all people, my Muslim uncle was going to vote for him. Strange world we live in, neh? In any case, I’ve learned to accept that our political choices do not represent the totality of our being, at least most of the time.

    Nice seeing you back Tammy 😊
