Cast Your Votes Conscientiously!


Local Election 2013 is upcoming and it is pretty obvious that many aspiring local politicians are already campaigning subtly for themselves. Most graphics business establishments are already busy with streamers. The last time I went to one of the city ads establishments here in CDO,they are already pre-occupied with campaign ads orders. If you happened to be a radio listener, the deafening voice of some announcers against one or two politicians can be heard. There are exchange of black propaganda which is, for me, an act of immaturity. Most often than not, our way of choosing our local or national officials are overly subjective. We sometimes overlooked their achievements and credibility. Sometimes also, we are greatly influenced by what the media usually told us and the online polls that were created by some group just to give us an idea on who did best during mock-up online polls for selected candidates.

In other country, people do not vote Mr. Personality for what he is, rather, they voted them for what he has done and can still be done to their country. They don't even mind if this certain politician is a womanizer, gambler, an atheist, etc as long as he did his responsibilities well while still in office, he has the great chance of winning the votes of the majority. However, we have different principles here in our country. We tend to choose whom we considered as noble and have a good personality, impressive character and outstanding achievements. But not all voters have that kind of thinking. Still, there are so many of us who tend to dive into vote-buying. We only vote for those candidates who gave us money, those who gave us promises for a permanent position- in short, we have the tendency to sell our votes. These are the disheartening truth during elections here in our country. No wonder, some disgusting candidates won just simply because they have  money. We always forget that the end does not always justify the means.

How about you, what's your stand? Do you think an honest and peaceful election can still be made possible?
