(One month before the deciding day)

In the previous elections wherein I freely exercised my right to suffrage, I always casted my vote to the candidates whom I believe the most qualified to serve the country. Whether it was based on intellectual capacity, impressive educational background, extensive work experience and positive reputation - I voted them depends on the situation.

It doesn't need to be Harvard graduate, bar topnotch, or UP masteral. It really depends on the situation - different elections get different approaches. True-good qualifications and credentials are big come-on but I go for the credibility. I choose independently - not through any political attachment, family influence and popularity hype. I make my decision according to track record of the candidate.

If why Benigno C. Aquino III because I believe he is the genuine opposition who could bring the important change in present bureaucracy. My major point and concern today is to break the forming pattern of political dynasty and to prevent the existing serious threat in our democracy. There are smart and witty but they are either the standard or suspicious secret bet of present administration which I want to put into end. While other is proclaimed religious believer but I cannot find the political will in his spiritual personality.

Anomalies like Jose Pidal account in 2003, the "Hello Garci" tape rigging the results of the 2004 election, the P728-million Fertilizer Fund scam in 2004, the $503-million North Rail Mass Transit project in 2004, the protection money for FG and presidential son from jueteng in 2005, the $329-million National Broadband Network deal with China's ZTE Corp in 2007.  I say never again, let’s bring justice. I go for a  change, I go for Noynoy.
