Elections are going to be held on Monday here in the Philippines. I for one am quite excited because it means that I can visit my Facebook timeline without seeing a politics-related post. They’re getting tiring.
What makes them tiring is the lack of intellectual discourse in the comments. This election period has degraded into a circus (and not a very fun one at that). There are people who have become mindless fanatics. It’s sickening to some extent. These people are the virtual equivalent of a lynch mob.
I am genuinely concerned that the wrong person may be elected this year. 😦
As for the land across the sea, I’m really hoping Sanders is elected.
