If ever...

If ever the elected politicians cant do something about the poverty in the Philippines, it will definitely increase and like some places in the world, there are people who lives on a dollar or less a day. but in the Philippines, i think its much worse.

In the Philippines, it is also the same problem compared to some countries. One of the problem is, they dont know how to budget. just think, they are already poor but they buy cigarettes, beers and etc... another extravagant example of Filipinos doing such is, when there are fiestas, they spend a lot. borrow money here and there, just to have something to offer to their friends and neighbors. if you look at it in an optimistic point of view, they are really blessed. because even when they dont have a lot, they even share. but what happens is, they borrow. basically, they are sharing what is not theirs and eventualy, they will have a problem of paying up their creditors. conclusion, if the debt rises because the creditor will charge for interest, the creditor might threat his/her family. what will the family do then? the kids will steal, the mom will have an extra job at night, the dad will probably resort to being a carnapper, kidnapper etc... crime rate would increase. investors would be thinking twice of investing here. businesses would fail. more people would become poor. and then the cycle goes on.........

So this coming elections, vote the right politician. dont just listen to what the government say. research on that person. like i said in my previous post, www.votester.com.ph has citizens own comments/reviews of that person. try to research more about them. you might be shocked what you might read, but at least, you will have an idea.

there is also an example in India, see story -> Here.
