    Read Campaigning VS. Voting


    While walking down the street one day
    a Philippine senator is tragically hit by a truck
    and dies. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by
    St. Peter at the entrance.

    "Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you
    settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom
    see a high official around these parts, you see, so
    we're not sure what to do with you."

    "No problem, just let me in," says the man.

    "Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher
    up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell
    and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to
    spend eternity."

    "Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in
    heaven," says the senator.

    "I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

    And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator
    and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open
    and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf
    course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing
    in front of it are all his friends and other
    politicians who had worked with him.

    Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They
    run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce
    about the good times they had while getting rich at
    the expense of the people. They play a friendly game
    of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and

    Also present is the devil, who really is a very
    friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling
    jokes. They are having such a good time that before
    he realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him
    a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator

    The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on
    heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's
    time to visit heaven."

    So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group
    of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud,
    playing the harp and singing. They have a good time
    and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone
    by and St. Peter returns.

    "Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another
    in heaven. Now
    choose your eternity."

    The senator reflects for a minute, then he answers:
    "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean
    heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be
    better off in hell."

    So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes
    down, down, down to hell. Now the doors of the
    elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren
    land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his
    friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and
    putting it in black bags as more trash falls from

    The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around
    his shoulders. "I don't understand," stammers the
    senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf
    course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar,
    drank champagne, and danced and had a great time.
    Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my
    friends look miserable. What happened?"

    The devil smiles at him says, "Yesterday we were
    campaigning ...... Today, you voted."

    tutoo yan, pag nasa campaign period ang gaganda ng promises at ang mga nakikita mo parating yung mga magagandang sides ng campaigner, pero once na nakuha na yung boto mo at nanalo na siya, makikita mo na yung tutoong kulay ng isang kandidato.

    magaling din lesson yan para sa atin na, mag ingat ngayong election,choose wisely ika nga.

    grrr... totoo yan! pag campaign period ang daming gumaganda, naayos at namimigay ng pera... isang example na ang mga paliga ng basketball. nung di election mga homeowners lang ang nagpapaliga, ngayon puro sponsored by... isa pa ung mga lubak na kalsada dito sa amin lalo na sa may palengke. nung di pa campaign period di ginagawa ni mayor, ngayong nangangampanya nagawa na... grrr.... mga plastik na buwaya sila!
