Because I Care

After a couple of days following the presidential elections in the Philippines on Facebook,  I’ve had enough. I will not say anything about which of the candidates I think should have won, because it’s the majority of the votes count in the end and don’t forget democracy. Politics is a dirty game and we all know that. Politicians promise the moon and the stars (or even the whole universe) to us during the campaign period and it is up to us if we are going to believe them or not.

I’ve never got a chance to vote in the Philippines. It’s not because that I don’t care about politics but because of the fact that I moved to Norway after I turned 19. But I always follow the politics and read news about my motherland because I owe to her my life, friends and family.

So I’m aware of what is happening down there. It’s not only the candidates who are “destroying” each other’s reputation but the supporters as well! I wondered if these people are real or they are just trolls but no. What I really despise are the derogatory comments and remarks. Haven’t they learned anything at school debates? Where is the respect? Where are the values? Can’t you just agree to disagree?
