Alan Peter Cayetano for President

I often suffer from high levels of laziness.  And when I do, I would simply lie down on my bed and do nothing but surf the net.  Usually, my surfing the net would lead me to either watch an indie short film or watch the circus-like hearings and privilege speeches done at the Philippine Senate as downloaded on YouTube.

I am glad to note that out from watching those giddy senate hearings and speeches I am able to contemplate and deduce who shall be the candidate whom I will vote for in the upcoming Philippine presidential election.  Thus, if the election will be held tomorrow, I would vote for Senator Alan Peter Cayetano.

The Philippines as a government already has a lot of development strategies and economic plans.  Some of which will be left fragmentary and incomplete while some will be left untouched/un-started by the present administration.  And for these developments to continue, another individual who is held beyond suspicion of wicked wrongdoings and malicious agenda is needed.  Thankfully, there is one candidate that exists, thus, the present President need not contemplate whether to stay in power or not beyond 2016.

Cayetano as I observed has consistently pays respect when respect is due yet attacks when attack calls for it.  What is so impressive about his style of attacking is that it is never below the belt and is conveyed in a very calm yet precise manner. The guy is simply an exemplification of buckets-full of wit!

His cerebral reasoning, critical debates, imaginative conjectures and significant inferences are usually freakin’ impressive.  Though he confessed in one of the senate hearings that he is hikain (asthmatic), he is a no non-sense guy.

alanpetercayetanoCayetano is always extremely prepared, thus an impeccable professionalism.  He speaks good Filipino and English languages.  He is fairly aesthetically presentable dude (but I think he needs to hit the gym like his siblings).  He loves the Philippines.  And the most important of all he looks and sounds sincere.

Unlike my (thankfully) level of sluggishness and indolence that is very variable and erratic, Alan’s level of integrity and moral ascendancy (thankfully too) seems unswerving.  I know that my candidate for the highest post of this nation is still subject to change.  But may it be in 2016 or not, I can see the future of the Philippines in this guy’s hand.

O ayan prodaktib pa din ang paghila-hilata ko…

One thought on “Alan Peter Cayetano for President

  1. Back in ’87 (or was it ’88), I lifted weights with a few friends in the local sports club in Makati. Alan was with us lifting weights. He was a teenager, lanky, a bit tall for guys his age and surprisingly strong. I was just getting to know Alan back then and regrettably didn’t spend as much time as I would have wanted to. I did however get to know him. My few months with the young Alan Cayetano left me with the impression that he has a passion for public service, his love of the Philippines is without question, and most of all he comes from a good family.

    When Rene Cayetano lost his bid for a congressional seat, he spent a private moment talking with Alan whose head was bowed in silence. I’ll never know what they discussed but I had a feeling the older Cayetano was reassuring his son that losing the congressional election that year was not the end of the world. How could it be when Alan will one day pick up where his dad left?

    In Alan I see hope for a better Philippines. And I hope Alan becomes president someday.
