Presidential Campaign Update part 2: the Family Background of your Future President
If you do believe that your children and their children's children deserve to live in a peaceful, prosperous, and free society, then here is the family background of your president in 2028.
So for those socialists who would say that her full HD 42 inch flat screen TV or that her house that's too big for only a few people to live in is selfish and greedy and should instead be used to pay taxes and provide free services to people then you are lucky Google AdSense restricts me from cursing at you. She deserves every bit of profit and property she has. Blood, sweat, and tears was her capital.
The many values I have learned from my mom is beyond words. I am undeserving of the material things and lavish lifestyle she provides for me. I feel like a burden, always.
Last week, she collapsed right in front of me and I didn't know what to do. Her blood sugar and pressure were through the roof. We were in the second floor of our house and I couldn't carry her. I had to drag her and force her to wake up. I was calling out to her as loud as I could. Eventually, she regained consciousness and I rushed her immediately to the hospital. I am so affected from that experience.
This is why, if elected, it will be part of my platform that we are able to take care of our parents and seniors. This is something that I will be very passionate about and will consider a priority. (my advisors and I are still currently working on my libertarian platform and it will surely be posted here as soon as it is completed).
He eventually quit the public sector as he could not swallow the corruption and coercion at that time (I don't think it would be wise to mention names so let's leave it at that). He started his own business, again an innovative entrepreneur. His company was tasked to build the big advertising billboards and signs of companies. He started out small until eventually he was doing billboards nationwide and even had an office in Singapore.
Eventually, he became President of Alabang Country Club (the place where I was eating with my mother above) in 1996, if I remember correctly. His rich and powerful opponent criticized him, saying that he was unfit for the job, that he wasn't even a resident of Ayala Alabang, but his humility, charisma, and ability to lead persevered and he won. I remember this story that he would tell me always that he gets a call from Ramos (president of the Philippines at that time) and would call him on the phone and say "Mr. President, let's play golf". The president of the Philippines called him Mr. President. Imagine, he used to sell peanuts.
Once again, the values and wisdom I gain from my father is always priceless and the same with my mother as I have mentioned. Being that I'm part of a pretty complex family setting, there were many times that my dad wasn't there for me but then, hey, he gave me my lovely Macbook Pro and that makes up for all of it (hahahahaha you know how much I love my baby).
Anyway, the PR department of my campaign team advised me to have a more family-oriented image thus this blog post. It's all about marketing, really. Barrack Obama, for instance, hired advertising agency BBDO for his campaign. It was probably just some random copywriter in their company who thought of the "Yes We Can" selling point or tagline.
And what more here in the Philippines, as I always mention, where the qualifications are either be a child of a previous politician, be rich and powerful, be an actor/actress, or be really good in boxing and you can already be a politician. What I can say is that I have none of those but what I will have is a political platform that roots on economic freedom, individual liberty, and a free society. That's not a selling point made up by some copywriter. Those are my advocacies. I want peace and prosperity for my fellow Filipinos.
So if you believe in me and in my advocacies, vote Harry Santos on 2028.
