    Let us vote for people like Atty. Marwil Llasos. A vote for him is a vote for hope. Hope in the bright future of the Philippines.

    Let us not waste our votes by giving it to candidates who are part of political dynasties. Just think: it could be your child who could be steering the country to recovery and greatness, but this chance is totally ruined if the dynasty is still in place by then.

    Let us break the chain of dynasties (which in the first place is a corrupt practice due to vested personal interests) by voting for candidates who rely on integrity, not on family name. Candidates like Atty. Marwil Llasos.

    God bless Atty. Marwil Llasos and God bless the Philippines.
