A critique of political propaganda of Mar Roxas, Binay, and Grace Poe

Why is it that Mar Roxas is explaining his concept of governance in his political ad? Because deep in his heart, Mar knows that he still does not know what good governance really is. He has been in government since the time of Fidel Valdes Ramos yet here he goes, trying to explain his concept of governance. That shows you his weakness--Mar Roxas is neither a performer nor a visionary leader. Instead of telling us his vision, Roxas spends 30 seconds trying to convince us that he knows how to govern this country, which, we already know, he does not.

Tell me---for the years he spent as a technocrat, do you even remember just one act, or just one law that benefitted us and is attributed to Roxas?

Digressing from what Roxas did, Vice president Jejomar Binay tried to overly portray his being a member of the mass of impoverished people by telling us, that hey, at one point in his life, he, like us, suffered seeing his mother die, due to lack of monies to spend for medication. The abrupt ending, which actually shows a very bad editing, left the imagination wandering--so that explains why Binay is trying to steal from us--because he does not want anymore to experience not having tons of monies at his disposal? Binay wants to be a member of the elite because of his childhood experience. So, that's why he is stealing and stealing big? Had the producers thought of including a statement such as " Dahil sa nangyari sa kanya, at sa paghahangad niyang huwag matulad ang ibang kababayan niya sa Makati, inilunsad ni Binay ang libreng gamutan at gamot sa Makati. Ngayon, wala nang mamamatay dahil walang pantustos sa medikasyon."

The worse propaganda TV ad I think, is of Grace Poe. Do you know why Poe is damned interested on the MRT? BECAUSE HER ELECTION FINANCIERS WANT NOTHING MORE THAN GET THE GOVERNMENT CONTRACT FOR THE REHABILITATION OF THE MRT AND THE LRT LINES.

Do you know why Grace Poe is harping on the alleged poor state of public service? Because GRACE POE BELIEVES IN SELLING GOVERNMENT ASSETS AND RESOURCES TO PRIVATE HANDS. POE IS AN ACTIVE PROMOTER AND IS THE POSTER GIRL OF PRIVATISATION!

Just take a look at her ad. She wants to elicit an emotional connexion but instead of providing us with solutions, Grace Poe's role is simply for us to just feel the suffering without goading us to unite and trounce the Oligarchs who are creating such monumental social problems and ills.

Hay naku. Wala na ba talagang iba??? Kung wala nang iba, maybe its time for us to consider re-calibrating our History and begin thinking of establishing a Council of State instead of letting our affairs be managed by these people.

Or, maybe, just maybe, among the three, I think the most viable is still or probably is Binay.
