How will you get my vote?

Its election season once more in the Philippines. A politician friend told me this one's gonna be tougher. So many popular names running for higher positions and the contest may be based on popularity and money. I thought i should list my qualifications for ideal leaders as early as today. and here it is.

1. I would go for a candidate who is Filthy Rich. So rich that he would look at the nation's coffer as a piggy bank. too small amount to use for his personal interest. Instead, he would use his own money to fund his programs and project.

2. A family man. Being a good father is hard, how much more being a father to a nation. What does it mean to be "GOOD FATHER"? "It includes being - honorable, blameless, and bearing a good and admirable character virtuous, praiseworthy, free from scandal, and not under any blemish for any vice. a man of integrity, of a fair reputation, well spoken of, and well reported of."

3. Lastly, God Fearing. The characteristic of a Good Father is that he fears God. "(2 Samuel 23:3) He rules his household in the fear of God. He believes there is a God above him Whose eye is upon him and to Whom he is accountable. (Ecclesiastes 12:14) He realizes that He will "bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil." (Psalm 1:1) He doesn't walk in the counsel of the ungodly, stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of the scornful. (Psalm 119:1,3) He walks in the law of God and does not Sin."

If you meet my qualifications, you get my vote. Make sure you follow guidelines set by the Commission on Elections such as:

A candidate must be:

a natural born citizen
on the day of election, at least twenty-five years of age
able to read and write
a resident of the Philippines for a period of not less than one year immediately preceding the day of election

I am encouraging my fellow voters to please be responsible in choosing the leader who will lead us in the future. Our votes count, make it work the worth.(fem)
