Lacson Cites Einstein in Advice to Voters for 2019 Polls

Choose between politics of service and politics of interest, and keep in mind what renowned physicist Albert Einstein said.

These were the pieces of advice from Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson on Wednesday, as the list of candidates running in the May 2019 elections took shape.

“On May 13, 2019, let’s choose between politics of service and politics of interest. Just remember Einstein’s definition of insanity and we can do it properly this time,” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account.

He was referring to a definition of insanity widely attributed to Einstein as “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

Wednesday is the last day for the filing of certificates of candidacy by those running for local and national posts in the 2019 elections.

“The phrase ‘to employ all lawful means to apprehend…’ in Presidential Proclamation 572 may yet save the day for President Duterte when the TRO petition reaches the Supreme Court. ‘All lawful means’ may include merely securing a warrant of arrest from a competent court; not necessarily ordering the arrest of Sen Trillanes.”
