I do not take politics lightly, nor do I like enforcing my political views on people who’d rather ignore politics. But I would encourage everyone to at least participate in next year’s elections by registering, educating yourself and then voting for your chosen candidates. The effects may not be immediate, but if you look at how far we’ve come since 1986 you’ll realize that things have gotten better. We can accellerate the process by being a part of the democracy we prize so much.
On that note, I’d like to invite anyone in the Makati area in the evening to “Gusto kong magrehistro, gusto kong bumoto” An event that tackles the youths’ questions on registration and voting to be held at 6PM in the Asian Institute of Management. I won’t be there myself as I’ve tons of work, but I’m already a convert anyway, and will be voting alongside millions of people come next year.
