Noynoy Aquino for President?!

I had been a follower of Cory Aquino and of whoever she endorsed. However, after Cory's apology to Erap and Noynoy's alliance with that same person (Noynoy was endorsed by Erap in the GO: Genuine Opposition --- there was even a photo of Erap raising the hand of Noynoy --- what an eyesore!), my admiration for the two of them has slowly faded and now, I'm afraid it's gone. Nonetheless, my respect still goes to our former President Cory Aquino for the mere fact that she was able to restore democracy in our country.

I have always regarded Ninoy Aquino as somebody of high morals and I will always remain as a Ninoy Aquino believer. However, his son, Noynoy has failed me. As a person, I believe he is good also (no doubt about that) but as a public servant/politician, I could not extend the same courtesy that I have extended to his father. How can Noynoy justify his alliance with a very corrupt and a morally-devoid individual (Erap)? How can you fight the present administration's evil system when you are also associated with a convicted plunderer? It's very disgusting to see an Aquino befriending such a lowlife; all for the sake of political convenience! In my opinion, that's an un-Aquino trait. He gained Erap's supporters but he eventually lost some of Aquino believers as a consequence... and that includes my family.

Nasaan ang delicadeza? Nasaan ang prinsipyo? Paano ko rerespetuhin ang isang taong kaya rin palang kumain nang naisuka na? Higit sa lahat, paano ko papanigan ang isang taong kaya rin palang mabaluktot ang prinsipyo basta't umaayon sa kanyang pampulitika na interes?

Noynoy Aquino for President?! Of course, he has a big chance of winning. Why not? After all, AQUINO s'ya. AQUINO lang kasi s'ya. Pero kung sa kakayanan at prinsipyo ng namayapa n'yang ama, WALA s'yang namana! Bulok din pala ang paninindigan n'ya tulad ng ibang pulitiko. TRAPO.

Kawawang Pilipinas. Wala nang mapili kundi ang "the least evil of them all (?)" but not necessarily the best one that can lead and govern our country.
