The time has come for us to be part of history. This is the first automated election in the country and will be known even after centuries to come (if 2012 will not perish us all). This is also a day for us to exercise our right to suffer ... este suffrage in other words, vote. I have still some positions that I am still deciding who will I choose. Also this is the first Social Media Coverage of the elections. We should also take caution and vigilance with the different forces that will clash later. Also I would like to still and ever continue to ask to vote according to your will and make sure that the one you chose is the one is the one you will not regret after this. Be firm. many would still be undecided up to now, yet keep your vote sacred

Think your not significant since your just a speck of vote, think again. If that would be the mentality of all the Pinoy voters, the scenario will result that will be determined by just alliances. On record there are over 50 million plus plus plus voters in the Philippines. And it would really matter since the beneficiaries of it will be the almost 94-100 million Filipino who are mostly under the poverty line. Yeah I think you know that already, so why wait to make these ill-figures grow when the power to really change is in a vote.

Doing your part for this day will be a citizen effort, not just yours, not just mine, but ours. Shared responsibility and liability. This is the day that we have been waiting for more than 6 years, or you can say 9 years. Its our actions who will make us live better or worse. If everyone is in, no one will get hurt, no one will die, no one will be sacrificed. If this is a little bit idealistic for you, then better make your own country, because a Pinoy will strive for a better country which many have already died for it.

So what can you do? You are now the new media...
