The 2010 National Automated Election is fast approaching, and citizens eighteen and above by May 10 (the author would turn 18 by December of this year; thus, he could not vote) would decide the fate of this State which has been the best and the worst the world has ever seen. But are we ready for this kind of history? Are we ready for this kind of decision where the power that lies in the people is more powerful than ever?
A month from now, this nation would write a new record in history because of a technology never before tested by the people, but much likely anticipated by the Commission on Elections. From this technology, the way the candidates get the sympathy of the masses and the stakes of its aftermath was raised to a higher level. Who are these sojourners for the positions at the national posts? What are their platforms and how would they convince the undecided to choose them? What would be the cost of their toil if ever they achieved their goals of having a seat in the government?
All these would be discussed at the next set of blogs.
