I am an apathetic citizen.

15 Jun

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

– Edmund Burke

For a perennial lazybum and apathetic citizen like me, the Ako Mismo campaign is a damn good idea. I’ve been complaining about life here in the Philippines for far too long and I didn’t even vote in the last elections.

Oh I did? I can’t remember!

The website looks good– one of the best I’ve seen so far. I’m not sure if there is an underlying political motive behind it but I somehow like the idea that it unites people for the same cause. Oh, it unleashes the hunger striker in me!  Hahaha!

I like the overall aim of the campaign which is to involve us Filipinos in solving our country’s 1,000 year-old problems. I’ll support it just as long as they don’t sell my e-mail address to spam companies. Hehehe.

What can I say, Chris Tiu alone can lure me into that website. (wink)

    yeah, “ako mismo” – because the government doesn’t do anything. So we have to do everything by ourselves.

    Just makes me wonder, what’s the use for our government then?

    that’s very true. walang silbi ang gobyerno in general. there are a few good apples pero natatabunan pa rin ng rotten ones.

    mmmhhh…ilang beses ko na din binabalikbalikan ang site ng akomismo.org simula ng una itong ilunsad… “ako mismo”… mukhang maganda ang layunin… sana nga lang ang lahat ng mga nag-commit ay gagawin ang kanilang mga sinabi…hindi lamang sa salita…sana naman ipakita din sa gawa… at hindi lang pra sa dogtag…🙂

    @yatot: mag-iisip din ako ng ako mismo facebook shoutout. grabe yung pledges ng iba.

    “ako mismo ang tutupad ng mga pinagsasasabi nyo rito.”

    “ako mismo ang pupunas sa pawis ni angel locsin kahit na mahirap.”
