In the past months Bob and I have been traveling a lot. I notice a lot of road construction. I just didn’t pay much attention to it until lately, because I realize that it is almost election time here.  Always here in the Philippines politicians will work on their projects when its almost election time to show people that they have done something during their term. It’s nice that they will have projects to work too, but they should do it not just during election time. I guess thats how they run there business here. I should say people are just used to it though.

I guess in some ways I wished to have election here like 3 times a year so that the Philippines will have good roads, nice capitols, traffic lights, bridges and so on. Lots of road widening projects. That will make our politicians busy here. And of course more jobs for the people.

One thing I wish people would do whenever they had improvements in there area like road construction. I really hope they maintain it.  Lots of time I’m seeing here that after the projects were done in their area, they just would not care anymore. It’s sad because they really work for it and it’s their money too that was spent on that project.

Hi Feyma,

Same here in Canada. I guess they all read the book "Politic 101". They sleep for 2-3 years and then when election time arrive…boom they wake up and you see them everywhere. At least they do something. Of course it would be better if they could keep this for the lenght of their term…maybe one day we'll have the chance a new generation of politicians.

Hi Patrice,
You're right they could be reading the same book. 😉 😉 I hope they would have the latest version soon. 😉
