2010 - What am I going to do?

Had this funny email at work earlier today. Someone asked me if I had any intentions of running for a government position in 2010.

I don't think it's gonna happen... Not anytime soon.

Sure, the Filipino who wants to change things for the better is in my blood. I have Grandparents who served the country with unblemished names plus I have an uncle doing an excellent job in the Senate.

Why? Well I guess I'm not ready. I'm still young. Plus people say that I'm too nice. I trust too much at times.

I know that I can help out through other means. But seriously, I'm not ready yet. Maybe someday I just might decide to follow my Lolo's footsteps.

The only thing that's bothering me is this saying... "The only way for evil to succeed is when the good people do nothing..."

Honestly, is the country getting better?

Is the word "politician" positive?

Do we, taxpayers, get what's due?

Problems we have include the ff: Crab Mentality, Selective Amnesia, Apathy. *sigh*

Change must be brought in the Philippines... Change we can believe in... (Barack and roll!)

I think that we dwell too much on the past. We just have to move forward... Let's not point fingers on who did what wrong. Let's start solving the problems immediately.

What do you think?
