Know Their Stand: Ed Hagedorn, Senatorial Candidate


edward-hagedorn-platforms-profile-pictureElections are coming. If you are a voter, you should know who you are voting for and where they stand, especially when it comes to issues of secularism. Here are senatorial candidate Ed Hagedorns responses on nine important issues, based on GMA News’ Mga Isyu ng Bayan.

 

Reproductive Health – FOR

“Basta the people can make their own choices. What we are against is ‘yung kung mag-iimpose sa tao.”

 

Sin Tax – FOR

“Pero mas maganda siguro kung lahat ng products [mapapatawan ng] tax, hindi ‘yung selective lang.”

 

Cybercrime – FOR

“Yes dapat ako diyan. Oo, kasi victim ako niyan. Merong isang taga-States na wala nang ginawa kundi ako ang pinagbibintangan. Hindi takot kasi nga wala pang penalty. Ako na pumatay sa lahat ng tao sa Puerto [Princesa], mamamatay tao, ganiyan. Walang takot, kaya naisip ko kailangan siguro, hindi lang para sa akin, kundi para sa mga biktima ng cyberbullying.”

 

Freedom of Information – FOR

“It’s very important at dapat nang maipasa.”

 

Anti-Political Dynasty – NO STAND

“Napagkakamalan akong political dynasty dahil tatakbo ako, tatakbo ang misis ko, pero actually for the 20 years na ako’y mayor, wala akong inilagay na kamag-anak, walang naging politiko.”

 

Divorce – FOR

“Ah, ‘yan talaga. Kapag kasi ‘di na magkasundo, bakit pa magsasama? Sabi nila annulment na lang. For me, annulment and divorce are the same, pareho lang ‘yan. Saka karamihan na naman ng bansa meron nang divorce so bakit tayo naiiba?”

 

Death Penalty – FOR

“Oh, yes, ‘yung mga crimes na karumal-dumal, dapat talagang meron no’n.”

 

Same-Sex Marriage – AGAINST

“Ayoko no’n. Parang hindi pa tayo ready para do’n.”

 

Total Gun Ban – NO STAND

“Ang total gun ban, okay sa’kin kung pati mga kriminal madidisarmahan. Kasi kagaya naming politicians, isipin mo kami nagtatrabaho nang legal pero dahil may mga gun-for-hire na gusto kang patayin, isipin mo wala kang means of defending yourself.”
