I know whenever a blog will post anything political, narrow minded mother****ers always feel like it's an attack on their own candidate--they end up calling fellow voters names, etc. It's all really ironic, that you support your preferred candidate by insulting fellow countrymen/voters on why they are morons for having a different opinion--when in the end, we all just want a better Philippines.

More than anything else, he or she must embrace the true essence of public service as a calling. He should also have a clear grasp of the concept that he was elected to the Office which is an institution, and he, the one elected to that office. The ideals and obligations of the Office go beyond his personal self. As the one elected by the people, he must always be guided by whats best for his country or constituents even if this entails great personal sacrifices on his part. A true leader must accept the philosophy that he should serve without expecting anything in return. In the end, his strength of character and integrity would give him the will to resist temptation. This strength of character and integrity does not come with the office these traits are nurtured through years of public service.
