No to Change in Charter, No to Constitutional Assembly

Thursday, June 11, 2009



I've started this blog as a political blog but over time - I got disinterested in politics, politicians and political issues.

I didn't care. I didn't have my opinions or I was too lazy to voice out my opinions. There's no use in talking about political issues anyway. I got busy on something else - something more productive, something more meaningful - looking for my place in this world. Nothing much really changes in the Philippine's politics. They are the same old stories.

I see no reason to amend the Philippine's constitution and there was no clamor from the public to push for a change in the political system. The Representatives whose functions are ought to "represent" their people have their own political agenda and probably manipulated by the people who would greatly benefit if such change were implemented.

I don't have in-depth information. I did not research and I rarely have time to watch the television or read newspapers online.

But it doesn't feel right to push for the charter change. I feel strongly about it. Call it intuition if you like, I just don't feel comfortable hearing about it.

I'm kind of disturbed with the image of this post. Kids holding a banner of no to cha-cha. First of all, almost everyone is against cha cha. Hmmmm this has been a very long long issue and I get tired of hearing the stories about it.

Now that I'm watching TV, no news updates unless it's a very controversial one, it seems like, I don't really care about it. Anyway, chacha or not, the Philippines has no hope. I would try to be open-minded and just pretend that there might be hope. Hmmmm is there hope? Really? Look at China. Rules in China can't be applied here in the Philippines, 100% I'm so sure.

People here are not disciplined anyway, and there's no way to discipline people here, both gov't officials and ordinary people.

And again, they should not bring their young ones on rallies, even if it's a peaceful one... from a concerned mother, and on a Chinese's point of view.

A long ago post Pchi! I was struck at what you had mentioned in your first few statements: "I've started this blog as a political blog but over time - I got disinterested in politics, politicians and political issues."

I just think your blog makes rounds on a wrong set of blog readers - well, I think most of your readers are not into political blogging. I can help you connect to political bloggers if you want - that surely keeps your motivation at political blogging afloat.

I don't think it's a waste of time though.
