The Lost Filipino

Geopoet writes the realism of the political spectrum of the Philippines from the ground of the Filipino masses. It portrays the realistic views of the small people who felt they are wrought of mass poverty as a result of so much political squabbles and bickering both from the top and lowest echelon of their own government.

The political battlefield is about to display a unique show that jumpstart players are cleaning up the old political house, renovated, repainted, and redecorated it with new strifes of change but the century-old course is still in every step; the main objective is control of the situation where friends and foes are hanging around like wild leeches.

The political gears are all lubricated with current sophistication by blatantly, or if not, deliberate swerving the course of laws, breaking off its sustained strength, up for grabs by those who are wise, and of course, with sufficient funds to divert attention. Bribes today are, per se, called as incentives of many sorts. The plantilla of political waves are airing different views as it toggles all along on the loops of dynamism in every crowd gathered together to plot navigation.

The Philippines today is writing new history that patterns back the old ways of earning edge like a domino play. Dirty old politics come around like weeds temporarily removed but discretely propagated in a new dilapidated vehicle by those who preferred to stay behind the backs of their own protégée.

Although, in one way or another, these protégées are aiming a professionalized stunt to please their back-ups, the goal and objectives of their political road is apparently legitimized by their new outlook of the political psyche of the Filipino people. The old means of enticing voters to come their way to the polling places, which is money, is still the most effective way of winning. These political crackers are hell-bent again of turning poverty, graft and corruptions, social injustice, and many others, as fundamental vehicles to win the political race. Yes, the track and field event is about to step on with a legitimated number of runners who are clothed with the innovative and dynamic old ways.

These innovative and dynamic old ways are now being drawn up on walls of social responsibility and drum up in the guise of the spirit of urgency by many other trump-up political parties. Yes, this is so because of our multi-party political system which we can see being clogged much with exploitation of graft and corruptions just to earn political gains. This system only encourages a flotilla of zero-focus political beliefs and traditions reliving the various tribal community groups of century-old Philippines. It would certainly encourage many groups to participate in a political exercise for their own selfish ends, but we may be able to foresee also that our nationalistic fervor likely swim deep water bed.

At the moment, I can see legitimate intentions among presidentiables. However, their icons only improvised the old ways of winning. The worst case scenario that I can see on this is that the old political machineries, like Nacionalista Party and Liberal Party, are on legitimate head on clash with each other as it was. The idealism that these political machines are practicing is still vital to our political system’s trade and practices.

On the other hand, the Lakas-Kampi-CMD as the present ruling party needs a new face-lift. And just recently, Pres. Arroyo has turned over the cudgel of leadership to former DND Secretary Teodoro to be the legitimate pick of the party for the May 2010 presidential race. The face-lifting has been done already with TV Host Edu Manzano as the face-lifting running mate. This would clearly indicate that the fading popularity of Sec. Teodoro as against Sen. Aquino and Sen. Villar is an ultimate pain in the head, as it is also indicated in the terms of thought delivered by Pres. Arroyo herself. There is cooking here. Something I believe which is not easy for the opposition to beat.

On the point of view of personality relationship, Sec. Teodoro and Sen. Aquino are legitimate cousins connected with Danding Cojuangco. I believe, whoever wins the race on this two, Danding wins, too! But when Sen. Villar will step up his stance and liquefy the very legitimate “machinery” that he’s got, the lagoon of the Cojuangcos would likely fade out as the campaign goes off.

Sen. Villar’s position as a very legitimate alternative is powerful and very threatening on the business interests of the big political stalwarts who are legitimately pushing up the candidacy of these two Conjuangco boys. I can feel a crumpled clone stretching out a turn-around crimps that will eventually unite this three-tiered fight into one meaningful whole.

Anyway, whichever ways these political parties may hold in this political exercise, correct me if I’m wrong, the political and social economy will certainly experience a rough road ahead and the gluttony of political powers will still remain a cancerous sickness overall. But, I can also feel that an untainted political exercise will calm down the storm of divisiveness and we shall be the beneficiaries of our good political exercise.

I can only hope that these bubble jumpstart players in the court of our political system will see the other side of the old political spectrum that we all see today. Indeed, I can see a new Philippines among them. I’d like to tell them, be true in your play and allow the voice of the people speak out the true meaning of suffrage.

My fellow citizens, please pray with me that May 2010 will be the dawn of a new Philippines that we all dream about. Get Paid to Take Surveys
