A Hero, a Heroine and a Free Rider

Posted on

This is my second politics-related blog…again, out of my own opinion…

To have an idea as to what the title meant, see image below:

I’ve already seen this picture before, from a Tumblr account of a friend, right after Noynoy Aquino announced that he is running for presidency 40 days after her mom died. Come to think of it, what this picture says is true.

No question about it, Ninoy Aquino truly is a hero of the Filipino people. His influence still lives inside every one of us, we stand up for what we know is right and we fight against the injustices that we see around us. His own life proved that he is worthy to be called a hero. OUR HERO.

I have nothing against Cory Aquino being called a heroine because she saved us from our dying hope for our country after the Marcos regime. But for me, her lack of experience in the public office, more over as a President of the nation, became one of the reasons why until now we are still drowning in billions of dollars of debt for how many decades now…again, one of the reasons…don’t misinterpret what I am saying here.

Now, going back to the reason why I’m writing this blog, Noynoy Aquino is indeed a free rider. He’s just lucky because of his name and the family that he was born into, but his political records show that he is not fit to become the next president, in fact he has done nothing that’s very significant or even worthy to be mentioned in his years of being a public servant. Yeah, I know what you’ll gonna say…that he must have done something, maybe some little things that I am not aware of. Then by all means…SHOW ME! I’m not very fond of people who talks and talks but really, they’re just borrowing the strong words of their parents. He can’t even figure out a way to solve their family’s issues regarding Hacienda Luisita, what more of our national problems? He knows what to say, but the question still remains, DOES HE KNOW WHAT TO DO?

And so I’ll end this blog by posting another image, again from the same source

  2. …up to this point, still wondering what got into their minds and voted Aquino as the next leader – seemed that they have much more sympathy over what’s “logical” in the world of defiled politics
