I am Running for President of the Philippines in 2028

If Joseph Estrada can become president of the Philippines then surely I'm eligible as well. This is why I am now officially announcing that I am running for presidency on 2028. To quote from the constitution, any person who wants to run must be:
"a natural-born citizen of the Philippines, a registered voter, able to read and write, at least forty years of age on the day of the election, and a resident of the Philippines for at least ten years immediately preceding such election."

I'll be forty by 2028 so that's actually perfect. I am not really doing this to win or actually run, obviously. I just want to be able to share to the world the different requirements, processes, and red tapes that a Filipino has to go through if he/she wants to be the president, most especially those who don't have the resources and political machinery. So I'll really apply and write about the application experience here. I can even get some of my aspiring filmmaker buddies to make a documentary about it or something.

And unlike many of those who will actually be able to run, I will have a real platform based on classical liberal ideas. I'll probably be the first ever fiscal conservative and minarchist to run for public office here in the Philippines. The plan is to be able to inject these kinds of ideologies into the mainstream. By that time, I'm sure social media has evolved exponentially and it will be much easier to spread this sort of mock-run that I will do.

I am Harry Santos and I approve of this message.

  1. Go for it, Harry. Do it seriously. Let's start the party-building process. Even if you win as a classical liberal but if you have no pol party that will back you up, you will end up either unseated or become a statist president.

  2. Whether you win or not, the important thing is to bring classical liberal ideas into public discussion. If this will materialize, I will be happy to think that my children, and my children's children will finally have a free society based on sound monetary policy and minimal govt. bureaucracy.
