Personally, I, like many political scientists, educated scholars, politicians, celebrity figures, stand-up comics, preteens on twitter, optimists, and the entirely of the modern liberal media, truly believed Hillary Clinton would become our 45th, and 1st woman, president Is The Presidential Election Process Fair?
Countries throughout the world elect their leaders using all kinds of methods, and in the United States, we elect our President using an Electoral College. This process is long and complicated, and many believe that it is inequitable and that we should elect our President based off the popular vote. On the contrary, an election based off the popular vote creates a democracy, and goes away with federalism. From the campaign speeches, to the Democratic and Republican National conventions, and even the presidential debates; Americans seemed to constantly be voicing their opinions on every aspect of the election, and who they believe is the more suitable candidate for president, especially on social media.
Over the last 58 elections, never has there been a more controversial topic to speaks about. From the issues that are being debated about, to the Presidential candidates themselves. The person who often found himself on the top of those polls was Joe Biden.
A man known for his down-to-earth attitude, Vice President Biden has had much talk surrounding him in recent weeks about whether he will run for president. With Bernie Sanders ' chances approaching a mathematic improbability, Hilary Clinton 's road to the Democrat nomination is all but clear. Although the Republican nominee is not as obvious, the field has at least been narrowed down from seventeen possible candidates to two, the Twitter loving Donald Trump and the optimistic Ted Cruz.

In contrast, the election between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney was a relatively tame and mundane election. It was decided by two elements, just as the election will be decided by. Choice, both by the media and the candidates is one ingredient to determine the outcome of elections. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers.
In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to infinity of choices.
You are doomed to make them. The chains continue to ignite. I am part of the chain; you are part of the chain. The Commission on Elections Comelec estimated that 81 percent of the That wait, though, is part of a problem.
For all our affection for elections, the process itself can feel bastardized. Vote buying remains far too accepted a tactic. And our candidates lean on showbiz antics and even political violence.
Too many of our politicians are unprepared and unqualified members of elite political families. Widespread election deception is not only part of the story of the Philippines, but part of my own history working for democracy.
In , the controversial re-election of Ferdinand Marcos, in votes marred by massive election cheating, made clear that his presidency was sliding into dictatorship.
In , martial law was declared. By that time, I was part of the anti-Marcos movement fighting the dictatorship. We must not forget that despite all the rhetoric and the fanciful public image that Duterte has concocted about himself, he is a politician at the end of the day — an astute politician who reads the masses very well, cleverly rides on their sentiments and discontent, and persuasively speak what they want to hear.
Like with any other politicians, Duterte's policies were shaped and will be shaped by his desire for political stability and to remain popular, and by that tempting prospect of political continuity. The general public delivering a rousing defeat right at the door of Malacanang can perhaps be persuasive. It could perhaps be the language that the President will finally understand!
With these, everyone has to bear in mind that the real battle in the coming months is not on Twitter or Facebook, but in the voting precincts. Liking or posting a status do not count and never counted. It can never shake things up or change the status quo, but this coming election can. It can potentially be game changing, either for the better or a further slide to the kangkungan. To be able to participate and have a say in the coming elections, one needs to register.
Liking or posting a status do not count and never counted. It was held on Tuesday, November 6,
In , martial law was declared. Whether you identify as a Republican, a Democrat, or somewhere in between, there is no denying that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two highly controversial candidates. Reagan, assisted by a falling economy complicated by inflation and high unemployment, and the Iran hostage crisis, Reagan would win the election in a sweep, receiving the largest number of electoral votes ever tallied by a presidential candidate not currently in office. Those who are part of the main political parties campaign as one slate which is bound together by the same set of beliefs, interests, motivations and platforms. Examine the figures, and the facts confirm the downward spiral. To me, we perceive it as important only because we happen to be there.
Thus, to me, elections — provided they are fair, orderly and honest — remain to be the most definitive political barometer.
On the other hand, we have Mrs. Someone must step up. As the country develops to keep up with the modern world, the political system also becomes more complex and in addition, the people become more difficult to control. In the Presidential Election, there are many candidates who ran for president.
From the nomination of the first woman candidate from a major political party to the nomination of first billionaire reality TV star, the election cycle has produced moments that would have been unimaginable a year or two ago. Then, after proclamation, everyone forgets each other and get on with their lives.
The process never ends until we die. In fact, I would even go as far to suggest that each candidate was a master of their craft—rhetoric.
Can we be chains of positive change? This election is one of the most contested in this century. Part-time amateurs play petty politics!
