PHILIPPINE POLITICS - THE ROOT OF ALL EVILS

Amidst all the turmoil today nobody has really gone back to the basic problem - the root of all evils.
I just put down my SunStar (Wednesday, October 19, 2005). TalkBack section on page A18 has an article by one Gary G. Ash. He says it all. "...This so-called democracy is a sham. People vote individuals to position of power and abuse. The vote is a commodity and sold to the highest bidder". THE VERY ROOT OF TODAY'S EVILS.
Until the people is mature enough to stop selling the vote at election time, things will only get worse (and yes, it can still!). This behavior only perpetuates people/families in power.
Speaking of people/families in power, whatever happened to the constitutional provision(s) prohibiting political dynasties???
