an appeal to Nicanor Perlas and Eddie Villanueva – abandon presidential campaigns and run for senate instead

we like to directly issue an appeal to presidentiables nicanor perlas and eddie villanueva – abandon your presidential campaigns and run for senate instead. there is still time to look for the political party and negotiate terms to be included in the senatorial slate of the major political parties, abandon your campaign now and run for senate.  we think running for any of the parties except the ruling/admin party KAMPI-LAKAS-CMD is viable for both of you.

we have said it before – we admire your ideas and we think your vision for change in the country are things this country needs. the latest Pulse Asia presidentiable poll confirms your presidential campaigns are going nowhere. villanueva got a measly 1% while perlas may have gotten less than 1% or none. this Pulse Asia poll confirms the SWS poll that was previously released with the same results.

the fact is you are running a losing presidential campaign. continuing on this path will only make the country lose your ideas on the public stage. you will go back to being private citizens whose voice to national issues will be just a little louder than ordinary citizens in a rally in the streets.

we think you have a more viable chance of winning a seat in the senate while your chances at winning the presidency is from zero to nil. getting seats in the senate for both of you will serve the country and the people well. your voice in the senate, assuming you win, will matter very much.

we call on to nicanor perlas, eddie villanueva and their supporters to abandon your presidential campaign and pursue senate seats instead.

to spur you on to pursue this, this blog will offer its services gratis if you pursue a senatorial campaign.

    The problem are not laws but the system… a systemic change in our country which involves making the government better and engaging in participatory governance. What the country needs is a leader which has a vision of a future for this country and will work with the people.

    Perlas had done so much as a private citizen with his public service record for 30 years. Things that are previously impossible but had made it possible.

    He introduced Sustainable Development to the Philippines and understands because he co-created Philippine Agenda 21 which is a blueprint for a self-sufficient and sustainable Philippines.

    If you want to help and believe in Nick Perlas the right move is to support and campaign for him.

    The surveys are not the determinant of election results… the people only need to know who Nick Perlas is and what he stands for and together we will create a new Philippines.

    It is not because of Nick Perlas alone that people support him but because of the vision of a new Philippines.

    If he and those that support him abandon this campaign… it is in fact abandoning the vision that a new Philippines is possible… a better life for the people in this country.

    Perlas is not a nuisance… he is a practical visionary.

    I had the pleasure of hearing Nick Perlas yesterday as he talked about climate change and what the Philippines should be doing. AND HE MADE A LOT OF SENSE. For the first time in my years of voting, I am NOT voting for the most popular guy because I believe that guy named Noynoy or Villar or Teodoro are RECYCLED POLITICIANS. For years they thrive in our political system, vowing every elections that they will bring about change. Being a senator or a defense secretary can bring change – IF THEY ARE MOVING THEIR BUTTS. But did they? NAH. Metro Manila only has 13 rescue boats – 13! – vs a population of millions during typhoon Ondoy. Does this make us prepared? Hacienda Luisita bypassed the 1987 Aquino constitution on subdividing the land, but they decided to keep it, and for 20 years he lurked in Philippine politics and did not move a muscle to change anything. he just goes around flashing that bright smile to please everyone.

    The Philippines need a visionary + action. Nicanor Perlas is one. He’s been in projects for YEARS and made progress in each one. If you don’t believe me, go to one of his talks and you’ll see how he can change things. That night, the crowd was mixed – there were farmers, religious people, musicians, working class (me included), retired airforce officers… and many came from far provinces. Nick also has huge international relations which will make it easier for our nation to have a voice in international issues. Nicanor Perlas is the best choice, no doubt. I was a skeptic but now I BELIEVE. And if everyone will, WELCOME TO THE NEW PHILIPPINES, WELCOME TO THE NEW POLITICS.

    “the fact is you are running a losing presidential campaign.”

    you really don’t know perlas… i think it is preposterous to even think that he would ally himself with the ruling coalition.

    I just want to add something up. Nick Perlas’ track record of achievements, awards and successful projects exceeds Noynoy’s or Gibo’s or Villar’s – BY A MILE. 30-40 years working for the people earns him that recognition, and he chose to work behind it all the time not trying to exalt himself. And that, sirs, is true service.

    this was just my topic earlier – TRAPO MENTALITY. The Loser mode. When Filipinos continue to be trapped in this kind of thinking, we’ll never get out of the vicious cycle that we have setup for ourselves. It is also Crab, or let’s make it smaller yet and more insignificant –Talangka Mentality –just like what we keep telling ourselves as a people, that we are insignificant, that we need a hero, that we can’t be successful without other people’s help. Enough already! IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP, CHANGE, EVOLVE! Here is Nicanor Perlas who Volunteers to throw himself in with the wolves, fight the good fight, and Filipinos like you would rather that he moves down and tries for a lesser fight. Then what? What of this country again? More years of the same old problems? More of the same Trapos sneering and washing their hands every time they shake hands with the poor, who keeps getting poorer by the minute? If you can take more, be my guest. As for me, I will do what I can to help a man of Integrity, Vision, Commitment, and Action to get the highest post in this land. Because then, and only then can an empowered citizenry join forces with true leadership! Of course, waiting for more authentic leaders to come out of the woodworks…it’s time for courageous, new politicians to take the limelight because the new breed of Filipinos are emerging as well who will support you and together we will achieve the Philippines we truly deserve!

    Oh and by the way, who is losing a presidential campaign? It’s not even campaign period, and just like Pulse Asia you go out “predicting” or shall I say manipulating perceptions?

    And it’s funny how you say that Nick will go back to being a private citizen who won’t be heard in the national stage — he has been heard more than once, with great impacts on people’s lives, and in fact he’s even been heard internationally, quite a feat don’t you think compared to the ones getting all the “high scores” in the surveys?

    Lastly, continuing on this path of discouraging WORTHY candidates to pursue great ideas, and the highest vision for this country will not be good for YOU, and for the FILIPINO PEOPLE. Might be good for your blog, but then, I guess that’s your chosen contribution.

    If Nick Perlas’ campaign is going nowhere and the survey’s shows his support is insignificant, then why bother with this appeal? It’s because you also believe in the guy! So why not direct your appeal to the Filipino people and use your resources/services to helping this true movement for change!

    For the first time as well an Animal Welfare activist is running for the presidency and he happens to be a very close friend of Dr. Michael Fox who campaigns for humane treatment of farm animals.

    I second that statement that Nicanor Perlas has huge INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS. If he’s in office, it wouldn’t be hard to have the Philippines’ voice in international issues. ESPECIALLY now that the global community is experiencing climate change and the Philippines’ is one of the countries first to go to oblivion. If our leaders would just keep on asking for aid and money, it won’t do anything to secure our survival. We need someone who knows what to do, who knows how to lead. We need someone who can speak out for us in the global arena – and tell the big countries to stop their carbon emissions! And let our country live.
