Yesterday, 43 million of my countrymen trek to their local precinct to once more live their right of suffrage and vote their respective candidates from the President to the municipal councilors.
and yes, I myself share the hassles and difficulties in trying to cast your vote to the official ballots. We started early, yet encounter some problems when we were told that we are in the wrong precinct and the proper precinct still doesnt have the list of voters in their hands. We line up there for 2 hours just to cast our votes to the people that will end up rubbing us blind the moment they taken their respective seats.
Well, I guess it will still be long before my countrymen will wake up in their illusion that those that gave them 300 hundred bucks every election will be the key to their salvation from poverty. Those that promise them food in their table will actually deliver the same old promise. those that claim that have studied abroad will be the ones to give them a decent work...
Im betting that i'll be rotting six feet under before such awakening to my beloved country. But unlike the most of my countrymen, I still have faith, that my prediction are wrong, and one day, I will see the real "Dawn" of my Mother LAND
