to those disappointed w erap's rank: did u do anything to educate his supporters? #halalan
if we're disappointed w the outcome we also share part of the blame, it means we didnt do enuf to educate others #halalan
I don't see why people are surprised with Lapid/Revilla/Estrada winning when it has been predicted by surveys for weeks before #halalan
To those who think Noynoy won't be a good president: all the more reason to work with him, help him do his job & keep him honest. #halalan
Since magaling cummonect sa mahirap si Erap, Noynoy should tap him for something useful like voter education. #halalan

maybe because Gordon discredited the surveys. hehevia www.facebook.com
it's hard to change the mindset of people who are used to the same kind of thinking for 30 years in 30 minutes.via www.facebook.com
wow nice but not nicevia www.facebook.com
bakit 30 minutes?via www.facebook.com
that's basically the maximum time that anyone would spend convincing another person to vote for his candidate.via www.facebook.com
... and hold his hand.via www.facebook.com
if it's not enough? Why is it the maximum?via www.facebook.com
don't ask me.. it's just an observation.. you should ask yourself.via www.facebook.com
facebook bug.. I can see my comment in your wall but not in mine =Dvia www.facebook.com
ikaw kaya nagset ng maximum na 30 minutes :p there's nothing stopping you from spending more effort to try to educate other people, except maybe that you don't want to spend more effort. In a way, it's our fault too because we have a mindset that "those people" are to blame and we just give up on them as hopeless instead of putting in effort to help them make better choices. You're saying it's hard to change their mindsets. Of course it's hard, because we also have to overcome our own mindset that it's not possible to help them.via www.facebook.com
di ako nagset ng 30 minutes.. I'm saying that people don't spent more than 30 minutes to educate other people. Which is an observation, not a statement of rule.via www.facebook.com
I'm saying its hard because we've tried, Gordon has tried, the Gordon-Bayani volunteers have tried.And look at the results.via www.facebook.com
Then we're obviously doing it wrong, aren't we? Campaigning for a candidate is not the same as educating other voters. Also, having these discussions on facebook/ twitter/etc doesn't really help with reaching out to people who vote for erap/lapid/ revilla/etc.via www.facebook.com
The 10% who do think and are informed, don't have the fund, time, expertize, patience, level of understanding, perseverance and drive to change the outcome of the election.via www.facebook.com
Exactly. I don't feel like I have a right to complain about choices other people made. There was a time when I thought that it was enough that I made an informed choice and did my best effort to communicate that through the channels I was familiar with (facebook/ twitter/etc). You and I agree it's not enough. The question is, what's the next step? Or we just going to complain about it, or are we going to search for ways to overcome the problems?via www.facebook.com
I had a much longer reply, but I was like "This isn't the sort of essay I should be writing at 3am" :pvia www.facebook.com
heheh.. I'm not complaining..I' m just stating a fact =Dvia www.facebook.com
Yes, well my original post was me complaining about people complaining haha. Ayaw ko na, tulog na ko.via www.facebook.com
hehe..cge.. what I'm pointing out is that you can't blame them for complaining, because that's all they can do right now.via www.facebook.com
Actually, that's my point. Filipinos like to complain, instead of doing something that can actually change the situation for the better. That's all they can do right now, but did they also do anything before the elections? The people who voted for Erap are the same people who voted for him twelve years ago. What have we done to educate or reach out to them since then?via www.facebook.com
hehe.. you're a living proof of such behavior..via www.facebook.com
Exactly, that's why I said...if we're disappointed with the results of the elections, we also share part of the blame because we haven't done enough. Hopefully we can do better next time. The problem of voter education is a pre-existing condition that we've known about for years. Although automation was largely successful, that's not a problem it would have solved. At least in some ways our elections are already improving, hopefully in the future we figure out how to solve the voter education problem as well.via www.facebook.com
@roytang They don't trust surveys daw diba? Trending daw diba?via twitter.com
@LaTtEX we know from prior experience filipino voters are likely to elect such people. It's not like automation would've changed that.via twitter.com
they're looking for a leader who is god-fearing, loyal, hardworking, principled, etc. i'm just looking for a leader who can deliver. i don't care if he steals millions as long as he can create billions of increase in our national income. they define a bad leader as someone who is corrupt, greedy, selfish, has vices, etc. for me, a bad leader is someone who can't deliver. i don't care if the guy is the nicest guy in the country. if he can't deliver, he's a bad leader. period. they should have included performance as a criteria. and they should have standards and metrics in how to measure the performance of a candidate ;)via www.facebook.com
I think, considering the poverty rate, no one has had performance of note, from that perspective.via www.facebook.com
tama naman Roy! hope every body else thinks the same way. There is no use in complaining. We just help in making our country a better place. It not only takes one person to do the job. Tulung-tulong tayo riyan! :)via www.facebook.com
