I have more or less decided who I’ll be voting for. If (and that’s a big IF) polls can be trusted and are indicative of who’ll win, then there’s a huge possibility of having Duterte as our next President. And I don’t have a problem with that. But I’ll leave the vote counts to his hardcore supporters. They have the numbers and the force for that.
My vote will go to Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago. Indeed she’s lagging at the polls. Yes, she can’t campaign as hard as the others. But her integrity and accomplishments speak for themselves. Most are just too deaf or too ignorant or don’t care to hear them. Which is a big loss for us Filipinos as a whole, and really saddens me. I may be in the minority, but I’m giving my right and my vote to the one who most deserves it.
And if any of the other three wins the election… I don’t even want to think about it, but you can be sure as hell I’ll be exercising my right to freedom of speech if something bad or worse happens to the county.
I rest my case.
