Really starting ‘em young

November 9, 2007

We all have heard of vote-buying in varying degrees, but during the last Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections, it was the first time (and hopefully, the last) that I have heard of a losing candidate who went after the people who didn’t vote for him for a refund of sorts.

To be fair, it wasn’t the candidate, it was her mother who went to the houses of the children. Wow. Talk about setting decent examples for our children to emulate.

If the sorry state of Philippine politics persists even after our generation, we only have ourselves to blame. We really started them young.
