Strange Is Coming: The Cult Of Mayor
Campaign period. People want change. They all want a savior who will save our asses from the past wackjobs of the government. They started to choose which one to support and which one’s not. Supporters and bashers are everywhere on the internet. In the midst of it all, the cult of Mayor has risen. For them, he’s the one who deserves to have the power of the presidency, the power of chief of command. The Mayor said outrageous things in his campaign in which his followers think seems reasonable. Even killing. Online harassments and death threats were typical. A not-so-funny entertainment to be seen, though. A mob of people would tell you ” No, he doesn’t mean what he said, silly!” or ” You guys are taking his speech out of context” or “Get used to it, he always talks that way”.
Bad ideas should be criticized and shouldn’t be left unchallenged, and he’s got tons of these. A few sensible people have challenged it. However, the cult is too loud. These fanatics follow him so blindly that they even forget how to be a civilized human in a civilized society. Rational debates are nowhere to be found. It’s blasphemous to disagree with their “chosen one”, their “god”. Don’t dare say anything negative about him, don’t you ever dare, unless you enjoy cyber bullying. That’s what you get from insulting someone’s messiah. You will taste the wrath of the cult. They get mad at you no matter how true your statement is, no matter how statically and rationally you explain your side. Facts don’t matter to them if it contradicts their chosen one. Well, this is not merely an exaggeration. You can easily look it up. See the comments section of any articles, especially the one that criticizes their “messiah”.
The Chosen One. The first question spring to mind is, “Why he was even voted by 16 million Filipino people?” We can sum it all up by saying he’s got voted in by gullible, ignorant and self-centered masses who want an “immediate change”. And what do you expect if you have such kind of voters? You bet. There’s nothing wrong with their “change”, we long to have them. The concern is how are you going to implement it.
Factors At Play:
Why we can hardly blame these people? Why are they in outrage?
(By simply looking at these factors, you will surely understand these people are sick and tired of incompetent leaders).
Failures Of The Past Admins
Erap, Gloria, Pnoy. These people had failed us. Some might say that the next president will only operate out of self-interest as they always have. People are getting tired as they are all the same.

Would you believe that these two scammers are still holding a position in the government until now?! Yes, that’s correct, they still got voted in by idiots after being allegedly linked to these scandalous crimes for plundering people’s money. And what do you get by letting morons to vote your leaders? SAD. Filipinos will never learn their lessons.
