squandering your vote

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Most of the people I know are voting for the less popular candidates in the upcoming—or, if you look at it in another way, impending--presidential elections here in the Philippines. Some, though they would want to vote for those who rank low in the latest surveys, said that they won’t. Because for them it’s like squandering their votes for somebody who, unless the powers that be make the impossible possible, has no chance of winning. Do we vote for those whom we think would win? Or do we vote for those whom we think should win? Would we want to be responsible for putting a person, regardless of his or her capabilities, in that position just because majority said that they would?

people who will vote for candidates whom they think would win (but should not) are stupid... pero sabi nga nila, never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. democracy? naah, idiocy.
