    Another member of a political dynasty whose ulterior motive is to enrich themselves under the guise of serving and/or helping people.

    There are multitudes of people serving and helping others without running for public office.

    While her father, Vice President Jejomar Binay, has undoubtedly initiated a lot of good programs in the City of Makati during his stint as Mayor, he also enriched himself in the process. Sadly, he has morphed into everything he fought against during the Marcos era. It is truly sad how his principles and values were eroded by coming into power unless of course, that being principled was just for show. He fought against corruption in his early years - I thought he wanted to eliminate it; in the end, all he wanted was to be in on it!

    We all know that “the apple does not fall far from the tree.”

    According to her, “pumapasok ako sa mga survey” (placing in the surveys) - impressive! What type of survey was it - the one wherein people were asked to nominate a potential candidate, or one wherein respondents were asked to pick from a list of names? If it is the latter, why is her name even on the list?

    Her political experience is limited to 1)being her mother’s personal assistant while her mother was the stand-in mayor for her father who at that time, could not hold office due to elective position term limits and 2)her father’s “kasama-sama” (constant companion) or to put it colloqially, “sabit” during his vice presidency. Is that enough to run for senator?

    “I think ang kulang na lang sa akin ay titulo, eh” (all I lack is a title). She was correct when she said “I think” - at least as far as what it concerns - that all she needs is a title, because what she thinks is definitely not the same as what other people think. On another plane, was she really thinking? Or maybe more appropriately, what was she thinking?

    Does she not have any other experience outside the “family corporation”? With all their clout and connection, were they not able to convince any of their patrons or their “subjects” in the private sector to give her a real job in order for her to gain some skills, experience, and insight which she could later on apply in pursuit of her political career?

    A nation truly deserves the government or people they vote for, let us be discerning in making our choices.
