It’s rather sad that while we all clamor for change, surveys show that the same bananas are senatorial frontrunners that promise no breath of fresh air. A few of them are of Showbiz pedigree like Bong Revilla, Jingoy Estrada, Lito Lapid, and Tito Sotto. Only Jingoy Estrada has a commendable track record especially as regards his hard work assisting OFW’s and the Philippine Movie Industry. Bong Revilla’s only accomplishment is to inspire sex star Katrina Halili to the halls of Congress and pass a bill adding a new district in Cavite so that his wife Lani can run for representative. Tito Sotto is more visible telling jokes with his Dabarkads on Eat Bulaga than in doing drug raids as GMA-appointed Drug Czar.
 
Several other new names and faces as seen on Harapan and TV interviews have shown auspicious and fresh ideas as they expound on their advocacies- so much better than Bong, Tito Sotto and Lito Lapid combined. I hope our people who want change for the better will vote for these potential leaders: Martin Bautista. Alex Lacson, Riza Hontiveros, Imbong (a muslim woman), Paredes II to name a few. Basta don’t vote yung mga Showbiz at Trapos.
