Bayan o bayad? 

Despite laws restricting it, vote-buying has always been a part of elections in the Philippines. Vote buying is a threat to the conduct of fair elections. With the growing population of Filipinos, it is certain that supporters of unethical political issues grow as well. 

In contradiction to this, ABM students from Oriental Mindoro National High School have been long committed to an honest competition in politics. As a fellow youth, we seek support for a fair democratic process to contribute truthfully to building our nation. 

Living in a country that is deeply in debt to other first world countries, corruption is known to be common. Billions of our very own money are being targeted by the higher officials who are known to do vote-buying, just so they could get back what they spent during the campaign. 

With this, as first time voters, we must be all aware of the cons in giving into the dark side of politics. This petition does not require fund raising, but requires to open our minds for us not to kill our freedom to democracy. Learn how to say ‘NO’ when greatly needed. Contemplate if your action will lead to the betterment of our community. Bayan o bayad?

The government is not the main problem, it’s us. Change must start within ourselves. Once knowledgeable enough to choose between right and wrong, our country would be the place we all wanted it to be. So, as cliché as this may sound, this coming elections, vote wisely!
