4. The one who builds a platform on empty promises.
“Mas masahol pa sa hayop” because: Promises aren’t really an animal trait. We make promises all the time, though. The least we could do, especially if our election hinged on making these promises, is to keep them. Otherwise, what worth is one’s word over another, if we can’t rely on the integrity of those words? When can we expect the FOI Bill to ever get passed, by the way?
3. The one who is insensitive to the pleas of his constituents.
“Mas masahol pa sa hayop” because: Communication in the animal kingdom is all about different kinds of calls and sounds and the responses programmed in each and every animal. That’s how some predators use mimicry to catch their prey, after all. It just seems so unconscionable when a politician who claims we are his “boss” would ignore the things we are in need of because all we can do about it at this point is complain.
2. The one who cannot separate church from state.
“Mas masahol pa sa hayop” because: Animals follow feeding time quite fervently. You don’t expect a lion who is full to always be hunting for prey, so why should we be expecting religious politicians to transpose their religion, one which we may not even necessarily share with them, right into the law of the land? We’re a democracy, not a theocracy.
1. The one who is never there, yet still draws a salary from us.
“Mas masahol pa sa hayop” because: Why would an animal insist on being the alpha male if it refuses to perform its functions as an alpha male? So why would we expect a politician who can’t attend more than four days of work to be any good for us, let alone receive a full salary that we’re paying for with our taxes? Hindi ba kahayupan yun?
