I am not voting nor endorsing to family, friends and people I encounter Noynoy Aquino nor Gibo Teodoro, if only for their commonality: their middle name Cojuangco. While their respective PR agents will emphasize their being on the opposite side of the fences of politics since the Marcos regime, this does not remove the fact that ruling families have ransacked this country to its current squalid state and continue doing so until now. We should not forget the massacre of farmers at Hacienda Luisita, the continuing plight of these victims' families in the said hacienda owned by the Cojuangcos, and the lot of other farmers in massive lands owned by the Cojuangcos elsewhere, the immoral and continued defiance of law by being the beneficiaries of coco levy supposedly serving the poor coconut farmers in the south, and we should not forget that while Noynoy insists he will not steal, does not guarantee his family and clan won't, when even now, they do. In fact, I will not vote for Noynoy not because of the overtly sensational, scandalous but sometimes funny Kris Aquino. It was his middle name why.
