Historic GOP Wins for 2016, Flipping the Blacks, and a Little on Trump’s Carrier Deal

Updated 12/20/2016

By Marcial Bonifacio

My friends and fellow conservatives, this commentary on the election results has apparently been long overdue, since Nov. 9th—the day after the general election.  However, various developments have prompted me to postpone it for fear of publishing it prematurely.  After all, what if Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was correct about voter fraud, or the Russians influenced the presidential election, or that some of the electoral college members will change their vote on Dec. 19th?  Regardless of such prospects, I have finally decided to publish my commentary.

Therefore without further ado, I am pleased to announce Donald Trump’s win.  On the whole, Trump won 306 electoral votes, the largest Republican win since George H.W. Bush’s election in 1988.  Clinton tallied at 232 electoral votes.  However, Clinton’s total popular vote count is approximately 65,762,564 (48.1%), while Trump tallied at 62,914,474 votes (46.0%).

To the astonishment of leading pollsters and political commentators as Dr. Charles Krauthammer, Trump even won electoral votes in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, Florida, Ohio, and Michigan—states which voted for Pres. Obama in 2008 and 2012.  Incidentally, it is the first time a Republican has won Wisconsin since 1984 and Pennsylvania and Michigan since 1988.  The Michigan contest was the closest race in the state’s history with Trump’s count at 2,279,543 votes and Clinton’s tally at 2,268,839 votes.  Such unlikely wins occurred, in spite of overwhelming odds and opposition from the Republican establishment, Democrat establishment, mainstream media establishment, and the short-sighted #NeverTrump conservatives.   Indeed, this has been, as Fox News anchor Bret Baier accurately described “the most unreal, surreal election we have ever seen.”

To my astonishment, not only did Trump win the presidential election, but Republicans have retained power in both chambers of Congress which essentially establishes a national Republican trifecta.  In the Senate, Republicans have 52 seats, while Democrats have 48.  The House of Representatives is comprised of 241 Republicans and 194 Democrats.  That essentially means the GOP will control all three branches of government, including the Supreme Court, whenever Trump fills the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat and replaces retiring justices with conservatives.

GOP victories extended to the state legislatures and governorships as well, just as during the 2014 midterm elections, which I wrote about in “Another Big Blow to Obama’s Tyranny.”  As a result of nearly 6,000 legislative races, Republicans dominate 66 out of 98 chambers.  They control both chambers in 33 states and hold 33 governorships.  Finally, at least 25 states have Republican trifectas, while Democrats have only retained 5 trifectas (namely, California, Deleware, Oregon, Hawaii, and Rhode Island).

25-red-states

In Kentucky, the GOP increased their state house membership to 64 (from 47, out of 100) which has been controlled by Democrats since 1921.  That puts 30 legislative chambers in the South in Republican hands for the first time in American history.  Iowa’s state senate was won by Republicans, putting them in control of both chambers.  Wisconsin’s Republican state legislative majority is the largest since the 1970s.

Phil Scott won the Republican governorship in Bernie Sanders’s home state of Vermont, which puts a check on its Democrat-controlled legislature.  In Indiana, Eric Holcomb defeated Democrat John Gregg, which will preserve the state’s 12 year lineage of Republican governors.  Before the race, the former was nominated to replace Mike Pence during his vice presidential run with Trump.  Republican and former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens beat Democrat Chris Koster in Missouri’s gubernatorial race, making him the state’s second Republican governor in the past 24 years.

In order to continue this momentum of GOP dominance on every level of government, I have a few suggestions to offer Trump and his team.  Notwithstanding his primary issues of border security and Obamacare, Trump must prioritize aiding the blacks (many of which are disgruntled Democrats) who voted for him.  Since he garnered more black votes than John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012, he has an excellent opportunity to start flipping the blacks, just as Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson began goading them into swelling the ranks of the Democrat Party in the 1960s.  The only difference is that instead of appeasing them with a pittance, “just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference” in order “to have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years” (as Johnson so blatantly put it), Trump will provide them with opportunities for a bright future via diverse educational options (public, private, charter, magnet, home schooling, etc.) and job and career options, especially for those who reside in the inner cities.

Since many black church leaders advocate family values aligned with the GOP (e.g., the right to life as opposed to abortion and traditional marriage), Trump must launch a massive outreach campaign to establish a dialogue with them as well as others in the black community.  His meeting with black role models as former football stars Jim Brown and Ray Lewis and musician Kanye West to discuss gang violence, education, and jobs was a good start.  Such a move can eventually undermine the agenda of the race hustlers like Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jessie Jackson, and Rev. Jeremiah Wright., who have profited from the racially-based entitlement and grievance industry they help perpetuate.

trump-west

Trump must also expand the Republican base by welcoming his blue collar voters (over 1 million of which are Democrats) to the “big tent”, just as Pres. Ronald Reagan did in the 1980s.  However, he must refrain from his populist, protectionist rhetoric, and simply emphasize regulatory and tax reform as an incentive to dissuade businesses from outsourcing, at least on such a grand scale.  It is a fact of economics that some outsourcing or automation (the primary cause of worker displacement) is essential to streamline the production process, which, in turn, will keep the price of goods low for American consumers, thereby increasing demand and output, which will create new jobs.  It is the principle of what free market economists call “creative destruction” at work.  For that reason, Trump should encourage displaced blue collar workers to either learn new skills or acquire knowledge calibrated to the predominant service and knowledge sectors of the economy.

Alternatively, many blue collar workers have become successful entrepreneurs either by starting their own businesses or by inventing products or services, which have allowed them to resign from their jobs or professions.  You can easily view them on TV shows as Shark Tank or Blue Collar Millionaires.  Indeed, such entrepreneurs and small business owners are the backbone of the American economy, which is why Trump should acknowledge them as successful examples of the free market system, rather than focusing so much on retrieving outsourced manufacturing jobs for big companies.

That is more practical and realistic than threatening companies with punitive taxes (namely, a 35% tariff) for outsourcing or subsidizing them in exchange for retaining their plants in the U.S., an arrangement which Gov. Sarah Palin says reeks of “special interest crony capitalism” as was possibly the case with Carrier.  Incidentally, Mark Levin (constitutional scholar and former advisor to Cabinet members under Reagan) questions the constitutionality of “specifically targeting (or favoring) one business and possibly threatening that business, should they leave the country.”   Meanwhile the Wall Street Journal editorial board criticizes it as “a mercantilist Trump trade policy” in which the Carrier CEO Gregory Hayes was “made an offer he couldn’t refuse.”

Anyway, after scaling back on regulations and reducing taxes for businesses and the working class, many jobs will be preserved.  Others will be created as a result of outsourcing and automation, and many jobs will yet be created from the ingenuity of blue collar inventors, who will use their entrepreneurial skills or knowledge to form their own companies and employ others.  Afterwards, Trump can rightfully take credit for a booming economy while winning over much of the blue collar Democrats.  Although he has 4 years (or 8 if re-elected in 2020), Trump should set the deadline at 2 years after his inauguration in order to steer the 2018 midterm elections in the GOP’s favor.

Aside from what Trump and his administration must do, conservative voters must hold him, as well as other elected officials, accountable.  That includes all the national and local legislators and governors.  While it may be argued that many of these newly elected Republicans simply rode Trump’s populist movement into victory, we must see to it that this powerful force eventually converts into the conservative movement whose end aligns with the vision of America’s founding fathers and the restoration of constitutionally limited government.

For that reason, I advocate a mass, nationwide campaign to educate citizens on America’s constitutional history and its relevance today.  In an age wherein the uninformed youth are easily mesmerized by the socialist rhetoric of Sen. Bernie Sanders or the populist rhetoric of Trump, constitutional literacy is the appropriate and perennial remedy.  Indeed, Sen. Ted Cruz emphasizes this:

It’s easy to talk about making America great again.  You can even print that on a baseball cap.  But the critical question is, do you understand the principles and values that made America great in the first place?

Hillsdale College offers a free online course on constitutional studies, which is certain to impart such principles and values to anyone taking it.

Another effective thing conservatives can do to preserve and expand the GOP majority is become active in local politics.  Whether by attending townhall meetings with the Tea Party, signing petitions, registering citizens to vote, running to be a precinct captain, or simply sharing conservative content on the social networks (like Facebook or Twitter), one can have a positive impact on a collective scale.  American Majority is a conservative organization which trains activists in all these things.

My friends and fellow conservatives, in closing, I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who contributed to this turning point in the election of Donald Trump.  That includes all pragmatic Cruz conservatives, blue collar Democrats, and former political rivals.  I wish I could extend my gratitude and praise to the #NeverTrump conservatives with whom I endeavored to persuade in my previous commentary.  Perhaps they will all eventually have a change of heart as it will soon be “morning again in America”—not because of Trump’s short-lived wave of populism, but because of the time-tested constitutional principles, which conservatives will revitalize within the party of Reagan and throughout the country.

Long live Liberty!  Long live the U.S.A.!

Update: As of December 19—the day in which the electoral college members cast their votes for the final time—seven altered their vote. In Texas, one elector voted for Ohio Gov. John Kasich, while another from Texas voted for former Texas House Rep. Ron Paul. In Washington state, three Democrat electors cast their votes for former state secretary Colin Powell and one voted for Sioux tribe leader Faith Spotted Eagle. A Democrat elector in Hawaii voted for Bernie Sanders. Three other “faithless” electors from Maine, Minnesota, and Colorado had their votes barred. That puts the final electoral tally for Clinton at 228 and 304 for Trump.

Whom Should Americans Vote for President—A Well-Known Job Creator or a Well-Known Felon?

By Marcial Bonifacio

My friends and American countrymen, both of the presidential candidates this election year are close to being equally weak.  That is why I have surpassed the more trivial issues, which the media and others, have sensationalized.  In order to simplify things, I have restricted the most relevant areas of concern to only two—accomplishments and criminal background.

Hillary Clinton has grossly mishandled classified information in that she has conveyed it to unauthorized persons, removed it from a secure storage area, failed to report its removal or communication, and retaining it at an unauthorized location.  All of those are acts of felony, which have compromised America’s national security.  Also, lying under oath before a legal inquiry is perjury.

Donald Trump has created a minimum of 34,000 jobs.  Some factor in the businesses not owned by Trump but thrive due to related business activities, which could raise the number of jobs to 67,000.

Which one do you trust more, and which one will have a more positive impact on the country?

How #NeverTrump Conservatives, Constitutionalists, and Libertarians Can Defeat Hillary Clinton and Restore Constitutional Principles to the Republic

Updated 11/03/2016

By Marcial Bonifacio

My friends and American countrymen, I am a constitutional conservative and am no advocate for Donald Trump.  In fact, I have been very critical of him in my two commentaries titled “Are Trump Conservatives Irrational?” and “Why Conservatives Should Cruz with the Best and Trump the Rest . . . including the Donald.”  Anyway, I am also a pragmatist.  As such, I view the leftist progressivism of Hillary Clinton (more so than Trump’s populist-nationalism) as an imminent threat to conservatism, namely in her Supreme Court justice appointees.  Clinton herself clearly vocalized in the last presidential debate that she favors justices who would uphold same-sex marriage and the pro-abortion Roe vs. Wade ruling.

By contrast, Trump has vowed to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia,” including the constitutional conservative Sen. Mike Lee, whom Sen. Ted Cruz said “would make an extraordinary justice.”  This issue of the Supreme Court justices alone is sufficient reason to keep Clinton away from the White House because as political commentator Dennis Prager points out, “Left-wing judges pass so many left-wing laws that they render those who control Congress, and even the White House, almost irrelevant.”

Political reality is such that only Trump, not Gary Johnson or Evan McMullen, can beat Clinton.  Some of Cruz’s staunchest supporters (who are #NeverTrump conservatives) have vowed to write-in Cruz’s name on the ballot.  However, Cruz himself has said, “I am not encouraging anybody to write my name in.  That is not something I am suggesting that anybody do. . . We lost the race.  I recognize that.  I respect the democratic process.  I respect the will of the people.”

That is precisely the only reason why I, along with Sen. Ted Cruz, Mark Levin, and Dennis Prager, urge conservatives to vote for Donald Trump—not because he is the icon of conservatism and the champion of America’s founding fathers, but because as Cruz says, “Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her [Clinton’s] way.”  For the #NeverTrump conservative whose conscience prevents you from voting for Trump, I must ask you:  How can your conscience be clear, if Clinton wins the presidency due to your refrain from voting for Trump?  Consequently, would her election make you feel better knowing the adverse repercussions it will have on your children and grandchildren (in terms of life, liberty, the national debt, the economy, etc.) ?

“The choice this November is tragic,” states Prager. “As it often happens in life, this choice is between bad and worse, not bad and good. . . When forced to choose between bad and worse, we supported Joseph Stalin against Adolf Hitler, and we supported right-wing authoritarians against Communist totalitarians.”  Therefore Trump would be the less unfavorable choice in order to defeat Clinton.

Furthermore, if you are concerned that Trump’s newly adopted conservative positions are all a charade in order to get elected to the presidency, and he reneges on his promises as president, there is another course of action conservatives can undertake.  The founders have established a process by which delegates can hold a Convention of States in order to propose amendments to the Constitution.  It is designed to curb or restrain the power of the federal government in the event that it becomes unresponsive to the states or the people and serves as an alternative to another constitutional convention.  The process is outlined in Article V of the Constitution and is advocated by Mark Levin, Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Tom Coburn, Gov. Greg Abbott, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sean Hannity, Gov. Mike Huckabee, and other prominent conservatives.

Lastly, I suggest conservatives meet their delegates in the Rules Committee of the Republican Party to add a few clauses, which would make the GOP more effective in the next presidential election and others to come.  For example, a “Closed or Republican Exclusivity Clause” would only permit registered Republicans to vote in the Republican primaries.  Political commentator at RedState.com Michael Harrington has estimated that Trump’s voters in the primary were composed of only 3.3 million Republicans, while the rest were composed of 12 million Democrats.  Many political analysts contend that if such a clause took effect in the primaries, Cruz would have won the nomination, instead of Trump, since the former tallied well in most of the closed primaries.

The additional amendment to the rules would include a “Conscience Clause,” which would serve as a safeguard against politically weak candidates as Trump.  The proposal would allow the current 1,237 delegates to freely vote their conscience on the first ballot, rather than automatically binding them to their state’s primary or caucus.  It would also help prevent discouraged conservatives from joining the #NeverTrump voters, and thus maximize votes for the Republican Party.  Sen. Mike Lee has been at the forefront of this effort as well as being a prominent member of the Rules Committee.

In conclusion, my friends and fellow conservatives, if you want to defeat Hillary Clinton and restore constitutional principles to the American Republic, do not write in Ted Cruz’s name on the ballot, and do not stay home and refrain from your civic duty.  Go to the polls on November 8th, and vote for Donald Trump.  Join the Convention of States movement, and pressure your delegates to add a “Republican Exclusivity Clause” and a “Conscience Clause” to the election rules.

Long live Liberty!  Long live the U.S.A.!

Jeffry Dy So they r joining forces now trump will be humiliated and this goes for clinton to defend allies like iran and saudis once again oh beother its the season where women of both countries are once again having free will to discriminate women thats ur ally clinton well done
Joseph Hinds
Joseph Hinds Your points are well stated Marcial. Obama won a second term because so many Conservatives and Evangelicals disliked Romney and decided that their “principles” were more important than the good of the country and failed to turn out on election day. Hopefully, enough of them will have realized the folly of their actions and go to the polls this time. This is an election where pragmatism is the order of the day. Many of us didn’t support Trump in the primaries, but now he is the only realistic game in town. The next 25-30 years of the Supreme Court hangs in the balance and if we fail to keep Hillery out of the Presidency, the country will be forever changed by the courts.

Devlin Baker I read it, not sure what you were hoping from someone that is by definition a christian and constitutionalist to read someone that claims to be a constitutional conservative, then confesses he is really just a pragmatist.

Great appeal to the pragmatists with no convictions though

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial BonifacioI appreciate your perspective, Devlin, but is it not possible to be both? If your family is being threatened by an assailant, and the only practical way to save them at the moment is to shoot him, what would you do? Would you adhere to the Christian principle of refraining from killing, or would you take a more practical approach to save your family?

Life is full of such unfavorable choices. However, reasonable compromises are necessary in times when our choices are limited due to reality, are they not?

Kayleen Knisley
Marcial Bonifacio
Marcial Bonifacio That means if Clinton becomes the next president due to your refrain from voting for Trump, you will not feel any guilt or remorse, Kayleen?
Kayleen Knisley
Kayleen Knisley I will not feel guilt or remorse.. my conscience will be clear.
Marcial Bonifacio
Marcial Bonifacio What about if more lives are aborted due to Clinton’s Supreme Court justices, which you can help prevent?
Kayleen Knisley
Kayleen Knisley Trump is so unstable. So many issues are made of the Supreme Court, but big like decisions Roe v. Wade were made with a majority Republican Supreme Court. Too much “fear” is being played upon and not enough logic, in my opinion. The way I see it, is if Trump goes in, we lose the Senate, and will not gain the House. Also, if he wins the GOP will never recover. Look how he’s divided us. If Trump wins, the GOP will be too busy trying to contain him to be aware of what the other side is doing. Add to it, Trump only ran as a Republican because he knew he could not beat Hillary for the Democratic nomination.
Kayleen Knisley
Kayleen Knisley I hear so many people trying to justify voting for evil because Supreme Court Justices are at stake. Do these people not realize that a majority of Republican nominated judges voted to pass Roe vs. Wade and many other abortion cases? Not to mention a Republican nominated judge voted in favor of Obamacare? The Senate can stop Hillary Clinton’s nominations if they so choose to do so. But I hear no one mentioning that fact.
Solution:
We need to stop voting for parties but for candidates who will support Godly values and the Constitution. Secondly, we need Congress to do their job and impeach when necessary. Thirdly, we need states to step up and nullify unconstitutional federal laws and Supreme Court opinions.
Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio You have made some valid points, Kayleen. However, conservatives are more informed and mindful of history, thus the prevalence of the Tea Party.

Anyway, in order to restore constitutional principles to the American government, it would be much easier to do so without a Clinton presidency. Even as much of a RINO as Trump is, the conservatives in Congress can put him in check, so that if he betrays them, they can simply vote against his progressive policies or impeach him. If that doesn’t work, then the American people can meet with their state delegates and propose a Convention of States, as I mentioned in my commentary.

In the meantime, we can at least prevent a Clinton presidency by electing Trump because with a Clinton presidency, conservatives will lose. With a Trump presidency, conservatives may win, even if only a little bit.

Marvin Remmers
Marvin Remmers Kayleen Knisley , if Hillary wins and Democrats take over Congress, then it will be like Obama’s first couple years where he was able to nominate radically liberal justices and was able to pass Obamacare. We need to vote for Trump and we need to vote for Republicans for Congress.

Kayleen Knisley Which is why we Need to vote the down ticket!

Marcial Bonifacio
Marcial Bonifacio I agree completely with you, Dean, that Trump owes Cruz an apology, which I don’t expect him to ever give. However, we must now look beyond his flawed character and save the country from a Clinton presidency. Cruz himself said Trump is the only thing standing in her way, and Cruz will also vote for Trump.

My Concerns about a Duterte Presidency

Updated 6/05/16

By Marcial Bonifacio

My friends and countrymen, with Congress’ proclamation of Rodrigo Duterte as the 16th president of the Philippines (clenching 16,601,997 votes), I wish to convey some of my concerns.  I have posed them based on his proposals, actions, and what he has said publicly.  Such issues should be sufficiently addressed before any of our kababayans give him our full support.

First and foremost, the president must protect and defend the Constitution and respect the rule of law.  According to Article III, Sect. 1 of the Constitution, “No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, nor shall any person be denied the equal protection of the laws.”  Duterte’s Davao Death Squad has executed over 1,000 alleged drug lords and murderers, all of whom were denied the fundamental right to due process.  Duterte expresses no remorse and is even boastful he will continue that policy under his presidency.

He was even unapologetic for his daughter (Sara Duterte), who attacked and physically assaulted Davao City Sheriff Abe Andres a few years ago.  Ironically, both Dutertes were attorneys, reinforcing the idiom that “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”  Such uncivil acts are slippery slopes to more lawless behavior, are they not?  How can we feel safe and certain that Duterte will not infringe on our own rights and liberty due to his thirst for criminal blood or impulsive temperament?

Second, several factors, including self-reliance and free enterprise, are essential to transforn the Philippines into a prosperous nation.  Unfortunately, Duterte does not seem to promote any of those principles.  On the contrary, he is a self-avowed socialist, who proposes to expand the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.  That would only perpetuate what Sen. Dick Gordon said is “the attitude of mendicancy among our people, which we have had more than enough over the last four centuries or so.”  I would add that such handouts (derived from hardworking taxpayers) would also prolong unemployment and encourage the systematic development of a welfare state.

Even more alarming is Duterte’s sympathy towards communists.  That is apparent in his proposals to designate cabinet posts to communists, grant amnesty to NPA prisoners, and end the exile of Jose Sison, founder of the Communist Party of the Philippines.  Duterte’s campaign manager, Leoncio Evasco Jr., was even a member of the NPA (New People’s Army).

Could Duterte himself be a communist?  If not, then why is he negotiating with them and inviting them to join the national government?  For someone known for his stringent form of justice (earning him the international reputation Time Magazine branded as “The Punisher”) even to the point of proposing the return of the death penalty by hanging, is it not inconsistent for him to be so lenient with terrorists who seek to overthrow our government?

My friends, I appreciate Duterte’s forthright oratory and maverick predisposition in opposing the oligarchy.  Such can also be said of the American presidentiable Donald Trump, but I digress.  Anyway, appealing rhetoric and opposition to the ruling class alone are insufficient in determining a suitable president. If they were sufficient, then it can be argued that Vladimir Lenin (Bolshevik leader of Russia), Fidel Castro (president of Cuba), and Robert Mugabe (president of Zimbabwe) should be heralded as great public servants.  However, history indicates otherwise, and until my concerns are sufficiently addressed, I must deduce that Duterte will be no different.

Jocelle Rabulan Corpuz

Jocelle Rabulan Corpuz Let’s just watch and wait for the outcome of his leadership as The President. Give him the benefit of the doubts and consider his achievements in Davao City. May God save our Country and people for whatever consequence we may face for his actions and laws he will implement. I know he is capable to lead but my fear is his inconsistency and the people he has chosen for the cabinet position. Remember the past history my friend … the failures of great leaders lies on his men and the people whom they trusted. God have mercy.

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Jocelle, my issue with Duterte is not that I don’t trust him, but that he will continue with his extra-judicial executions, of which he is boastful.

Are you disappointed that he has denied Leni Robredo the National Anti-Poverty Commission post?

Jocelle Rabulan Corpuz

Paul Farol

Paul Farol My friend, I’ll give him enough rope to hang himself with.

We hit Digong, the yellowtards get stronger. We are currently at an impasse.

As much as it pains me to say this, we have to make this presidency work.

If, despite our sincere efforts to help this presidency succeed and it fails, PDiggity will have no one to blame but himself.

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Paul, I really don’t know which is worse. On the one hand, we have a president surrounded by politicians, who seem either corrupt or inept in dealing with our country’s age-old problems. On the other hand, we have another perfectly capable president-elect who may be able to finally resolve those issues. However, he would maintain peace and order by suppressing our people’s most fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution. At least, Pres. Marcos did so under martial law.

Dodong Aberca

Dodong Aberca r u freak this man hasn’t started yet!!!

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Dodong, I can only judge someone according to his track record. Perhaps Duterte seeks to revive the death penalty in order to deter current criminals and potential criminals, making the extra judicial killings obsolete. That would be a compromise I am willing to concede.

Biernes Atrece

Biernes Atrece Very well said, kaibigan

Joseph Hinds

Joseph Hinds Marcial, I share some of your concerns, but it is far too soon to tell what President-elect Duterte is going to do. He seems to be something of a chess player and a gambler when it comes to politics, so his methodology may be a bit unorthodox. At least in his case, we can see the results he achieved in Davao City. He may very well have broken some eggs, but the omelet turned out well. The extra judicial killing presents something of a conundrum because the judicial system has become so corrupt that the syndicates, oligarchs and drug lords can buy their way out of trouble even in the face of damning proof of guilt. If the system of laws no longer works for justice, then is it really an injustice when other means are used? Likewise the acceptance of the communists at the cabinet level is a novel approach. The Philippines have had a running war with the CPP for almost 50 years and have still not succeeded in getting rid of them. Perhaps by including them in the political process at the cabinet level, their position as revolutionaries can be undermined and cause them to loose some of their appeal to their followers. They may also be more willing to disavow violence in order to retain their new found political relevance. Also, I not so sure that a little socialism in the Philippines would be a bad thing. I think it would be to the benefit of the average citizens to have the power company’s monopolies either opened to foreign competition or simply nationalized. It is ridiculous that electric rates in the Philippines are three times what they are in the USA and they still get hit with regular brown-outs. Let’s let DU30 have his chance. It’s not as if his predecessors have set the benchmark very high.

Evangeline Mejia

Evangeline Mejia very well said sir!!!exactly my thoughts…may I share your comment?

Joseph Hinds

Joseph Hinds Yes Evangeline, feel free to share if you wish

Evangeline Mejia
Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Joseph, your points are well taken. However, on the issue of dealing with the communists, I think that it would be better if Duterte implement his proposals to liberalize the economy and establish a Philippine federalist system. That would serve as the basis for a long-term plan to create jobs and promote competition, which would lower prices and provide better services.

Such a successful economy would crowd out the communists without appeasement or bloodshed. Offering them cabinet posts reminds me of Pres. Obama appointing Van Jones (member of the Communist Party) as “Green Czar.”

In terms of a little socialism in RP, I think that at least on a subsistence level as food and medical services, it is reasonable for the destitute. I also appreciate Duterte’s proposal to improve internet services:

http://news.abs-cbn.com/…/duterte-improve-internet…

Joseph Hinds

Joseph Hinds You might be right about the communists, but Van Jones and his friends weren’t killing people on a regular basis so there is a considerable distinction between the two examples. An improving economy will help without a doubt, but it will take a while for that to reach fruition, so perhaps we can look at this as a stop-gap measure to quell the violence in the short term.

Paul Farol Jose there’s nothing wrong with me, i’m just citing what was said by PDiggity and what was said by another journalist who viewed the press conference.

Thing is, I’ve met a lot of hao shao/acdc journos and I know their MOs. I also know of at least two who were involved in shady deals that were later assassinated by people they double crossed.

We can’t paint people angels and devils, it’s a much more complex situation that someone, from the outside, can comprehend.

Paul Farol

Paul Farol And yes, I am interested to know of the cases where Digong had a reporter killed based on false accusations of being a druggie or drug dealer. If there is any evidence, I would gladly confront him with it.

I never liked Duterte, btw. In fact I gave him a good bashing all through out the campaign period and even before that.

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Perci, to be fair to Duterte, he clarified that he was referring to the corrupt journalists who accepted bribes, only to later oppose the ones who gave them money. He does not advocate the murders, but he says they are to be expected from basically double crossing the ones paying the bribes.

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio However, his catcalling to the journalist Mariz Umali was certainly inappropriate and perhaps illegal. According to Davao City Ordinance No. 5004 (which he signed), whistling can be construed as sexual harassment.

Jeffry Dy

Jeffry Dy Is catcalling again an issue jeez get real this bs had been there the whole time and in the Us i believe its legal whether this is legal or not this nonsense reporting has to move on and get on the real objectives at hand like whats in store for digong since many are still doubting him for being pro china and such and Can we be venezuela(again)on his federal form of gov as what bashers still installing in our minds???Well find out and also i may suggest to have all of transpo and public hubs free wifi to have convience of passengers and also for communication and I may say he had the guts to do so and i believe this has to end on this alleged pro commie since i voted for him and has the same accomplishments of what dick did in Subic.

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Jeffry, I agree that the issues you raised are important, but if Duterte will not follow his own ordinance (which is fairly simple), how can we trust that he will respect and follow more serious laws? There is even talk of a potential Duterte dictatorship:

http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/…/most-powerful-ph-leader…

newsinfo.inquirer.net|By Gil C. Cabacungan
Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Gordon can address all of those issues within the restraints of the law. He can definitely be trusted.

Jeffry Dy

Jeffry Dy I don’t think so plus he’s Pro left therefore as such he may not be a patientlike dick does but he’s definitely a pro poor and he addresses his laws at hand since many are still criticized him again on this bs bias on media freedom and a former prosecutor(not a radical left)

Jeffry Dy

Jeffry Dy also he joined edsa 1 right?if he’s pro makoy then he wouln’t rallied this dictatorship had it for so long it had to be arrested for having allies w npa which aquinos are also sided on and I’m just balanced on this matter so far only some unknown politicians and a card leaning leftist are in the gov so we can no longer see them rallying in the streets anymore since every presidents have a sona every year

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Jeffry, I’m willing to give Duterte a chance. However, his leftist background and apparent coddling of communists makes me very suspicious. Also, I don’t consider policies which keep our kababayans dependent on government handouts “pro-poor”, unless you mean keeping them permanently poor. On the other hand, Sen. Gordon stresses job opportunities, which will raise people out of poverty. What can be more “pro-poor” than that?

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio On the issue of Duterte joining EDSA 1, perhaps he opposed the Marcos dictatorship because it did not conform to his own political ideology. After all, Pres. Marcos vehemently opposed the communists. Some even argue that he was the reason for the swelling of the NPA.

Also, many argue that the Marcos oligarchy was simply replaced with the Cory Aquino oligarchy. Therefore, Duterte’s participation in the first People Power Revolution doesn’t necessarily mean he opposes dictatorship; it only proves he opposed the Marcos dictatorship.

Dale Gozar
Dale Gozar Marcial Bonifacio
Duterte admitted he’s leftist but never been part of the Communist Party or rebel, and certainly don’t belong to NPA, NDF, etc. even if he has befriended them (Singson)
Duterte also think solution to our insurgency problems (Communist or Moro) is largely political and not military or use of arms – 47 years of conflict with gunbattles proved that.

Communist/Moro arms struggles occurs when there’s a Very Big gap between RICH and POOR due to corruption and exploitation by the oligarch of the common Filipino – with only the rich getting richer while the poor gets poorer.

FYI
North Korea is the only remaining communist country.
Yes he values the lessons learned from former communist and socialist countries. But it doesn’t mean he will adopt a communist government.

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio On the issue of India’s growing population, the country is becoming increasingly prosperous. According to Forbes:

India is the world’s 4th largest IT start-up hub with more than 3,100 tech startups in the past year alone. It ranks second in worldwide food production. Its auto industry churns outs 22 million cars a year, making it one of the world’s largest auto manufacturers. It boasts a $600 billion retail market and is one of the world’s fastest growing e-commerce markets.

http://www.forbes.com/…/india-asias-next-economic…/…

RP is abundant in natural resources and an educated, English-speaking workforce. What it lacks are job opportunities and sufficient foreign direct investment. If Gordon were in Duterte’s presidential position, he would do precisely what he did in Subic Bay, which was all lawful and constitutional. He would also lift trade restrictions similar to India.

forbes.com|By Ed Fuller
Jeffry Dy

Jeffry Dy so by contrast du30 hasn’t have any clue on how to regulate trade restrictions and I had an Indian friend on fb who is critical of moodi because most of India’s tech he said was defective and also his Us trips as well http://www.dailyo.in/…/bjp-modi…/story/1/7763.html What i said was pro-poor because the poor themselves getting opportunities to see how he can handle things when he accomplished in Davao and many voted on him because of that even the tulfo bros the respectable tough talking journalist in media believes on his accomplishments too.Well I respect your opinion on not giving him a chance on this and thanks for having exchange of ideas in regards to du30 leadership you have yours i have my side and as such you make things balanced and constructive.

When Will Donald Stop Quacking?

Updated: 3/28/16

By Marcial Bonifacio

My friends, “if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.”  Not only has Donald Trump absolved himself from attending two important events, he said he would not participate in the next FNC debate as well.  All three events are significant, since they allow his potential voters and supporters to scrutinize his record, policies, and vision for America more closely.  Therefore, Trump’s pattern of absence from these events looks precisely like a “duck”—a hypocritical position since he has criticized Sen. Marco Rubio for his excessive absences in the Senate.

In my commentary titled “Why Evangelicals and Conservatives Should Cruz with the Best and Trump the Rest…including the Donald,” I criticized Trump for evading the Iowa debate just before its caucuses.  He claimed that debate moderator Megyn Kelly was unfair to him in the previous FNC debate, and that he committed to a veteran fundraising event instead (which he said was more important).  As a result, presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz challenged Trump to a 90-minute, one on one debate for which the former’s team would donate $1.5 million to veterans.  As an alternative to Kelly, Cruz stated, “We can arrange for Mark Levin to moderate, or Sean Hannity to moderate or Rush Limbaugh to moderate or Glen Beck to moderate.”   That would seem to be a win-win situation for Cruz, Trump, Iowa voters, and the veterans.  However, Trump declined Cruz’s challenge.  (I hear a duck quacking.)

In my commentary titled “Are Trump Conservatives Irrational?,” I mentioned that Trump did not attend the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in spite of being one of the first to accept the invitation.  According to its organizer, Matt Schlapp, Trump disliked the new question and answer format of the event, which was formerly a speech format.  As a result of CPAC’s refusal to capitulate to Trump’s terms, he campaigned in Kansas and Florida instead.  (I heard a duck quacking again.)

Again Trump has decided to forgo the FNC debate scheduled March 21 in order to speak at the pro-Jewish American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).  “I thought the last debate on CNN was the last debate, that was going to be it.  Nobody told me there were going to be more debates,” stated Trump, “I think we’ve had enough debates.”  Apparently Trump does not want to debate Cruz due to his poor performance in the last two debates.  Ironically, Trump did declare on March 6, “I would love to take on Ted one-on-one.”  (That is the third quack I heard.  Perhaps it is more accurate to say that a “quack” has “ducked” three times.)

On March 22, 2016 Cruz appeared on the O’ Reilly Factor, challenging Trump again to a one on one debate.  However, he has chosen the feisty but fair Bill O’ Reilly to moderate this time.  Trump may have a big penis, as he boasted in a GOP debate, but does he have big proverbial testicles to meet Cruz’s challenge?  Perhaps it was his scheme all along to attack Cruz’s wife on Twitter in order to distract his potential voters from the debate challenge.  After all, they both occurred on the same day.

donald-trump-tweet

Donald Trump’s tweet to Ted Cruz, threatening to humiliate his wife.

Aside from another potential debate, why would Trump skip all three of the aforementioned important events?  Is it purely coincidental?  Could that have been his strategic plan in order to evade the informed conservatives—the ones who are well read and actually view and scrutinize the debates down to their minutia?  Cruz spokesman Ron Nehring concludes:

Perhaps Mr. Trump is unable to speak for more than one minute about any given topic because of his shallow understanding of basic policies, or perhaps he is scared of voters learning the truth—that he has spent his entire adult life promoting liberal positions completely opposite of the conservative platform that he has campaigned on.

If Nehring is correct, that puts into question Trump’s capacity to lead the country and confront America’s enemies.  Trump himself has admitted that he has never encountered so much pressure as he has in campaigning.  How much worse will it be once he starts governing as president?  Would this not be a grave risk for the American people as well as the world just as the election of Pres. Barack Obama was?

Fortunately, there is an alternative candidate who is a constitutional conservative and already has a proven record of defending life, religious liberty, gun rights, state sovereignty, and the free market system.  His iron political will has made him impervious to the pressures of standing up to his own party in defense of fulfilling his campaign promises before the Senate and defending the Constitution before the Supreme Court.  In conclusion, my friends, Trump the Donald and Cruz with Ted.

Victory to Sen. Ted Cruz for God and Country!

Why the Senate Needs More Dick: 9 Reasons to Add Richard Gordon to Your List

Updated 5/7/16

Ni Marcial Bonifacio

Mga kaibigan at mga kababayan ko, ang layunin po ng lathalang ito ay hindi upang hikayatin kayo na iboto si Sen. Richard Gordon against or over another senatoriable, kahit marahil, that debate can be made. Sa kabilang banda, I wish to persuade you all to add an indispensable man ng talino at makasaysayang mga tagumpay sa inyong talaan ng hinihirang na mga senatoriables. Please allow me to present my case.

1. Siya ang tagapagtaguyod ng laban sa mga tradisyonal na pulitiko at katiwalian.

Unang-una, si Gordon ay isang taong may paninidigan at matibay na paniniwala. Bilang chairman ng Senate Committee on Accountability of Public Officers and Investigations (Blue Ribbon), Gordon exercised his power to oppose corruption, as in the P728 million fertilizer fund scam. (He did so by wrapping up the probe and pushing for the filing ng charges ng kasalanang mabigat laban kay former Agriculture Undersecretary Jocelyn Bolante para sa misappropriation ng mga laang-gugulin ng pamahalaan.)

Blue Ribbon Committee Chairman Gordon interpolates businessman Jaime Paule in the midst of the P728 million fertilizer fund scam.

Sa alingasngas ng $329 milyong dolyar ZTE National Broadband, he took measures para sa pag-uusig ng mga pinuno ng pamahalaan sa paglabag ng Anti-Graft at Corrupt Practices Act. At the time when Pres. Gloria Arroyo imposed martial law sa Maguindanao, Gordon opposed it challenging its constitutional validity; such a maverick tendency indicates na hindi siya trapo sapagkat siya ay itinalaga ni Arroyo sa gabinete. Furthermore, a man, such as Gordon, who will impartially uphold justice and follow the rule of law bilang senador ay mahalaga para sa ating bayan which was ranked as one of the most corrupt countries sa Asia noong 2014 sang-ayon sa Corruption Perceptions Index of Transparency International.

In his most recent crusade against corruption, Gordon filed a Petition for Mandamus in the Supreme Court in order to curb voter fraud for the 2016 elections.  As a result, the Comelec was ordered by the high court to enable the printing function of the PCOS machines, which would clearly reveal the chosen candidates of voters on their receipts.

2. Siya ang taong matuwid at maginoo.

Pangalawa, maaring mas may kapakinabangang pampulitiko si Gordon, kung nagsampa siya ng kaso laban kay Sen. Grace Poe upang madiskwalipika ito sa pagtakbo sa senado dahilan sa mga usaping pagkamamamayan at paninirahan, na naging paksa ng agam-agam at pag-aalinlangan sa mga mapanuring mata ng lipunan. That was precisely what his UP college mates (also members of UNA and LP) urged him to do. Subalit, sa halip na pagnasaan ni Gordon ang senatorial seat na mababakante ni Grace Poe kung sakaling mapawawalang saysay ang pagkamamamayan nito at matanggal siya sa pwesto, minabuti niyang bigyang linaw ang usapin.

I believe that the matter of Sen. Poe’s qualifications for national office has already been referred to the proper legal venues, and I deem it counter-productive to say anything more about this issue, aside from the statements I have already made.

Karagdagan dito, lubhang pinahahalagahan ni Gordon kagalingang panlahat at katiwasayan ng nakararami, higit sa kanyang pamilya. Sa halip na ipagdiwang ang kapaskuhan sa piling ng kanyang pamilya, pinili niyang ibahagi ang diwa ng Pasko sa buhay ng mga taong higit na nangangailangan, ang mga biktima ng Hurricane Mayon. Isang pagmumulat matang may kaakibat na tanong. Nasaan at ano ang pinagkakaabalahan ng ibang senador sa panahon ng kapaskuhan?

3. Siya ang taong may pananaw.

Pangatlo, Gordon’s transformational vision of a prosperous Pilipinas is not one of mere wishful thinking or political rhetoric. Sa kabilang banda, iyon ay pangarap, which has already been partially implemented sa Subic Bay with outstanding success. (I will elaborate later in this blog.) Gordon supports measures which would create domestic jobs and render the Philippine economy less dependent sa mga remittances ng overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). He favors the promotion of the free market system, so that competition would lower energy costs; this would lower production costs and prices for consumer goods. In turn, living standards of all our kababayans would be raised and the destitute would be lifted out of poverty, rendering the culture of government handout dependency obsolete. Sa wakas, Gordon envisions a Third World Philippines ascending into First World status.

4. Siya ay may malawak na karanasan sa serbisyong pampubliko.

Pang-apat, ang limampung taon na makabayang paglilingkod ni Gordon ay patunay ng kanyang wagas na pagsisilbi sa ating bayan. Sa katunayan, he has assumed various positions as Olongapo City mayor, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) chairman, Department of Tourism secretary, at senador ng RP (Republika ng Pilipinas). He has even been a Red Cross volunteer, since he was seventeen years old (48 years ago) and is currently its chairman.

5. Siya ay may kapita-pitagang ulat na natupad.

Panglima, si Gordon ay may pambihirang galing na naitala sa Senado para sa kanyang masigasig na pagsusulong ng mga panukalang batas at pagtatanggol sa Saligang-Batas. Bilang senador, he authored several important laws (e.g., New Automated Elections System Law, University of the Philippines Charter of 2007, Filipino World War II Veterans Pensions and Benefits Act of 2008) and was a member of more than twenty committees (most notably the Blue Ribbon, Economic Affairs, Trade and Commerce, Education, Energy, Foreign Relations, National Defense and Security, and Ways and Means). He also served as chairman of the Constitutional Amendments and Revision of Laws Committee and was the youngest delegate to the 1971 Constitutional Convention. That makes him an exceptional lawyer and senator, sapagkat he has not only participated sa paghahanda at pagsususog ng mga panukalang batas at resolusyon, lalo’t higit sa pagbalangkas ng kataas-taasang batas ng ating bayan, ang Saligang-Batas. Samakatuwid, si Gordon lamang ang nagtataglay nang labis na kahusayan at kasanayan sa pagpapaliwanag at pagpapatupad ng mga batas sa buong kapuluan.

As the youngest delegate to the 1971 Constitutional Convention, Gordon swears in.

Kaugnay sa mga paliwanag ko sa aking naunang blog “Of Scooters, Buses, Jeepneys, and Airplanes: A Simple Case Against Gibo, Noynoy, and Manny Villar for President in 2010,” I argue that more than forty years of Gordon’s diverse executive experience sa local at pambansang level ng pamahalaan was his unique advantage over the other presidentiables for being the national executive (the president) ng bayan. I compared him to a skilled driver of a scooter, jeepney, and bus, all of which require different types of perception (namely, distance and depth), maneuvering, and coordination. Halimbawa, a bus driver could not possibly drive in the same manner as he would drive a scooter in which, when turning a bus around, would necessitate wide turns and a keener sense of distance and depth.

Gayunpaman, sa paliwanag na iyan, I argue that such a diversity sa executive experience is also Gordon’s unique advantage for the national legislative branch (Congress) as well as for the national executive branch (the presidency). Using the same metaphor, consider a driver’s perspective as opposed to that of an engineer or blue print maker, who designs motorized vehicles or builds roads. Sa katotohanan, a vehicle transports the driver insofar as its apparatus (mobile design, engine capacity, etc.) and road surface allow. Samakatuwid, a driver’s experience is generally confined exclusively to the mechanics and mobility of the vehicle he drives. Hence, though an engineer may have the ingenuity and creativity to design a vehicle, without actually test-driving and utilizing it fully, the engineer can only speculate on its operation and effectiveness, thereby rendering the driver’s experience and perspective more accurate (for purposes of designing vehicles).

With this in mind, may isang tanong ako na gusto kong unawain ninyong mabuti. Which would you prefer to have as an infrastructural or mechanical engineer para sa inyong bahay o commuting route? The man who only draws blue prints for buses or a skilled driver of a scooter, jeepney, and bus, who also draws blue prints for buses? Sa katotohanan, iyang proverbial multi-vehicle driver at blue print maker ay si Gordon.

In plain language, here is why I also argue that Gordon’s diverse executive experience gives him a unique advantage of being a senator. His experience of private and public policy implementation gives him the hindsight of working with other policy makers as chief executive himself, which subjected him to conflicts of interest, compromise, resolutions, and collaboration with them. Halimbawa, bilang mayor (an executive position) ng Olongapo City, he worked with the sangguniang panglungsod (local legislature) in ratifying or vetoing bills as a local public executive. This gave Gordon the perspective and savvy to craft good laws and pass them effectively through the often long drawn out legislative process and conflicts of interest between the national executive (the president) and the national legislature (Congress). Being mayor has also given him a stricter sense of public accountability, since the small bureaucratic structure of local officials tends to be more transparent (as opposed to the national level), thus making it more difficult for them to conceal their potential violation of the law.

6. Siya ay tagapamahala ng krisis.

Bilang CEO (an executive position) ng Philippine Red Cross, Gordon traveled all over RP, undertaking numerous drastic measures. Bilang crisis manager, he directed many disaster/rescue operations involving aid sa man-made and natural catastrophe victims. Sa kanyang limampung taong mapagkawanggawang paglilingkod, his intervention has saved millions of lives and restored over 133,000 homes ng mga biktima ng Yolanda at ng iba pang malaking mga kapahamakan at kalamidad. (View this video for firsthand accounts, including a successful hostage rescue operation from Abu Sayyaf without ransom.) He has also directed operations that involve prevention and safety in order to better prepare our kababayans for any disaster. Only a crisis manager or executive (not just a legislator) would know precisely what resources and in what quantity need to be allocated to each disaster area, knowledge which is indispensable for a country prone to such disasters.

7. Siya ay tagapaglikha ng hanapbuhay.

Bilang Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) chairman, Gordon directed a successful effort to convert a desolate, abandoned American naval base (Subic Bay) into a prosperous economic trade zone. Bago pa man ang conversion, Subic Bay was reduced to a heap of ash caused by the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. After Gordon inspired thousands of volunteers to clean and renovate the area, hundreds of companies (including Acer and FedEx Express) created approximately 40,000 jobs with their US $1billion of foreign investments. The success was such that several world leaders (including Pres. Clinton) hailed it bilang halimbawa para sa pagsulong ng ekonomiya.

President Fidel Ramos considered Subic Bay such a success, he designated it (instead of Manila) as the location for the 1996 APEC summit, in which 18 heads of state met. Among them were Chinese president Jiang Zemin, Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad, the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, and US President Bill Clinton (at the far right).

Among them were Chinese president Jiang Zemin, Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad, the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, and US President Bill Clinton (at the far right).

Another executive position Gordon assumed was that of secretary of the Department of Tourism. At a time of declining tourism, he managed to increase the number of tourists from one million to two million within a single year, thereby creating numerous jobs. Against overwhelming odds, all this occurred in the midst of terrorist threats, civil war in Mindanao, coup attempts, and SARS.

Furthermore, mga kaibigan at mga kababayan ko, sana naiintindihan ninyo ang kahalagahan at kapakinabangan ng executive experience as opposed to legislative experience lamang. Maliwanag iyan, knowledge for crafting laws can most accurately be derived from those who constantly manage the daily operation of producing and allocating various resources (e.g., food, manpower, money, capital, rescue supplies). Short of such first hand experience, knowledge remains partial and inaccurate sapagkat iyon ay based sa pangalawang mga pinagkukunan o kaisipan lamang. It would be analogous to an engineer claiming the car he designed will be easy to operate, ride smoothly, and be comfortable to drive without ever having driven it himself.

8. Siya ay dalubhasa sa pakikipagtalastasan.

Pang-anim, bilang radio show host sa Radyo5 92.3 News FM on a program called “Aksyon Solusyon”, Gordon is exposed to people of diverse economic, provincial backgrounds. Such a constant daily inflow of various feedback directly from the people keeps Gordon informed on the state of the nation and provides him with fresh ideas on what can and must be done. Bilang senador, he will be in a better position to accommodate such ideas sa pamamagitan ng pagsasabatas.

Radyo5 Gordon

9. Siya ay taong pangmasa.

Sa aking pang wakas, apart from Gordon’s apparent devotion and service sa ating bayan, on the lighter side, he is a man of the masses, which maSiya des him a likable politician with a human face. Halimbawa, ito ang clip upang he performs a song and dance routine with the renowned entertainers ng Moymoy Palaboy.


Sa ibang video, he dances the Harlem Shake with his grandchildren. If that is not enough to persuade you all of his ordinary humanity common to the masses, here he is cooking barbeque. Hindi totoong isang pangkaraniwang faceless, “out of touch” at professional politician si Gordon. Sa katotohanan, isa siyang payak at masayahing tao na may kababaang loob, magandang pag-uugali at mapagpatawa.

Sa aking pagbubuod, ito ang mabait na senatoriable who has served sa Senado, held various executive positions, and has expressed his love para sa ating bayan by serving it for more than fifty years. He was responsible for saving millions of lives and building thousands of homes for the homeless. He has opposed corruption openly and challenged the president (who appointed him sa gabinete) and others, sa batayan ng kanyang pagtatanggol ng Saligang-Batas. He also knows how to do the Harlem Shake. Who would not want all those qualities in a senator?

Gayunpaman, gaya ng sinabi ko kanina, ilan lamang ito sa pamantayan nang matalinong pagpili ng isang kandidato over another. Batid kong, isa itong pagpapasya kung gugustuhin mong magdagdag ng isa pa sa iyong talaan ng mga hinihirang na senatoriables. Subalit iminumungkahi ko, mga kaibigan at mga kababayan ko, if you don’t want the best to be missed, then add Sen. Gordon to your list.

Mabuhay si Sen. Dick Gordon! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

Marcial Bonifacio Paolo Dela Cruz Lim, I’ll answer your question here as well as in the blog itself. Unang-una, Gordon does not have the silver bullet which will address all of our country’s ills. Gayunman, one of his solutions, to address your point of objection to add him to your list, is economic liberalization. As a consequence, more jobs would be created, and more tax revenue would flow to the government and reduce dependence on social welfare programs, thereby reducing the national debt. He already did it sa Subic Bay. Samakatuwid, he can do it for the entire country.

Army.There i’ve seen how dangerous in helping people,so respect even those volounteers.If one don’t like to support Gordon,because of his being a workaholic character.He knows peoples need him to moved on.So for so many years in service i can say a man like Richard Gordon and the others you can’t find it so easy,even without using the Red Cross helping people he can find it on his way.Like what he did to Olongapo.Here abroad Gordon is popular enough.Red Cross,is so actived than before.Whatever he do its for the good of our people and our country.His mother i will always think as a great woman and Dick is 100x better than her.Working in Red Cross for him a lot of poor people you wanted to helped that most of our politicians kept on ignoring.I’ve seen only once the role of volounteers specially in Red Cross its not that easy at all.Sweat,blood that others can give in working as Red Cross volounteer.Support Dick Gordon,whatever he does he knows there are a lots of people like him who had the same vision of helping.Helping people sometimes not all can used by money and popularity,just try to saved peoples life in time that matters. My brother because of no money they ignored him in Olongapo Hospital.My mom was so desperate and did asked helped on him.It was 1980’s right away he called the US military hospital for helped and they arrived as fast as they can.The next day when i talked to the Doctor after the operation my brother did not survived for its too late to call for helped,the doctor told me not the first time they helped filipino people,things like this he knows our Mayor are so actived in helping the needy one so big support,its not because of money nor popularity,helping poor ones in Zambales with lots of NPA around that time in Zambales,who will have couraged to do that.I only did it once,more than the military couraged you need sometimes in helping others and i said Red Crosser is the hardest job you can get.For me other will support Dick or not he will continue in helping others nor others around him will continue thier worked to saved peoples life nor helped them in hard times.So amazed with Red Cross now,health center and school that others need nor house that others dreamed to have Red Cross can offer.Thanks,more the support of others are worth to continue.And until Dick is working in this organization nothing are impossible.My mom is a Red Cross volounteer before and i’m proud of her.They like people had unity in helping.Some people stay near to Dick for they are the one who need support for they cannot beat this people in working hard and no difference what is day and night,nor time in helping our people.To others support him,as you can its tough but its worth to have a man like Dick.

Marcial Bonifacio Gilbert, I appreciate your service and that of your nanay’s. Salamat para sa kwento mo.

Isa Lan
Isa Lan Sir, as far as I know po, yung mga Red Cross Vehicles po, lalo na yung mga service nila wala po mga nakatatak duon kundi mga Red Cross Emblems. Matagal na po ibinabato yang issue na yan laban sa kanya. Perhaps, it’s as well that you brought this up at this point to clear things up.
Number 1, not everyone knows that Chairman Dick Gordon has donated his PDAF while he was Sentaor to the Red Cross. The PDAF was used to purchase ambulances which were distributed to the RC chapters nationwide. Previous to this, the RC only had limitied ambulances. Hindi lahat ng chapters po meron.
Number 2, in this instance, mahirap po atang paghiwalayin o himayin yung role niya bilang Senador mula 2004-2010. Dahil habang Senator po siya, naitalaga din po siyang Chairman ng Red Cross. Di ba po dapat na mas maapreciate natin na ang pinuntahan ng PDAF niya ay may katuturan at mas likas na nakatutulong sa taumbayan?
Number 3, at present, 4 term elected Chairman na siya ng Red Cross. Kung hindi po siya nakakabuti para sa Humanitarian Institute na ito, patuloy ba siyang pagtitiwalaan ng mga naghahalal sa kanya?
Number 4, bilang chairman po ng Red Cross, volunteer pa din po ang status niya. Sa madaling salita po, WALA PO SIYANG SAHOD. Pero dahil nasa puso niya ang likas at tunay na pagseserbisyo sa mga tao at nangangailangan, patuloy niya itong ginagampanan at lalong pinagiibayo.
Number 5, hindi po alam ng lahat ang walang puknat na paghahanda ng Red Cross kapag may mga parating na unos o may nangyayaring trahedya. Kakaunti lang din po ang nakakaalam na HINDI NATUTULOG AT HINDI NA MAKUHANG UMUWI NI CHAIRMAN GORDON dahil siya mismo ang nangangasiwa at nagmomonitor ng mga pangyayari, sitwasyon at mga tawag. Kung baga sa timon, siya ang kapitan ng barko kahit na may mga tauhan siyang gumagampan sa mga gawain.

Buksan po sana ng ating mga kababayan ang kanilang mga mata sa pagkakaiba ng mga pulitkong sumasakay lamamg o nanggagamit ng pagkakataon at pananamantala. Sa palagay ko naman po ay VERY CONSISTENT PO OVER THE YEARS ang mga serbisyo at gawain ni Chairman Dick Gordon. Wala po akong nakikitang dahilan upang siya ay pagdudahan. Sana po ay nakatulong po itong paliwanag ko sa inyo at sa mga may katanungan o duda sa kanilang pagiisip.See Translation

Bheng Jonatas
Bheng Jonatas After Haiyan, or Yolanda, vehicles acquired are all donations. Donation meaning, Dick Gordon has no hand in telling the donors what to place on them.

Bheng Jonatas
Bheng Jonatas The 2013 election happened May 2013. Yolanda happened November 2013. So where is the logic of boosting his senatorial ratings for 2013?

Marcial Bonifacio
Marcial Bonifacio Isa, salamat sa mga punto mo, kaibigan. Marangal si Gordon sa kusang loob niyang paghahandog ng kanyang PDAF. Ideally, more people should know about that dahil iyon ay maliwanag na indicator ng kanyang pagkatao. The same holds true with Gordon’s risky, humanitarian service sa Red Cross.

Gilbert Menchu
Gilbert Menchu Ang mga nagtratrabaho sa Red Cross noon very risky lalo na sa mga libliban na lugar lalo na kung ang mentality ng mga tao na walang mga school around.Dahil bawat pumasok na tao na hindi sila kilala is a spy ang tingin nila.Dahil sa lugar at lupain na iniingatan nila na huwag pag interesan ng mga politician.Dahil sa iyon lang ang lupain na minana nila sa magulang kahit walang kasulatan kaya ang ibang NPA iyan daw ang pino protektahan.Pero ang mga Red Cross naman bago pumunta sa isang lugar ina announced muna nila.Itong issue na sinasabi ninyo some years ago may naikakalat din iyong iba na paninira tuwing botohan times lang at nawala din.Nong nasa Gapo si Dick sa SBMA,sabi ng kapatid ko sa akin,ang ugali ni Dick open naman sa mga tao at nakikita nila ang totoo. Sa facebook pa ngayon na mas madaling nakikita ng mga tao ang bawat kilos niya.Matagal na sa service si Dick at alam din niya kung sino ang mga tao na inggit sa kanya,naalala ko some years ago na may nanira na parang ayaw niya na nasa Red Cross si Dick.Mahigpit ang Red Cross organization,di katulad ng ibang organization.Dahil sila ang pinaka nauuna sa kahit anong humanitarian service.We need not to listen sa mga taong walang magawa kundi ma merwisyo na hindi naman nila kayang gawin ang trabaho ni Dick.Isang beses lang akong nag civic action pero nong time na iyon i am glad na na experienced ko.Pero dahil sa very risky ang lugar masarap tumulong but i don’t want to risked my life dahil sabi ko i have dreams in my life to fullfil din.Sabi ng mga tao sa lugar na iyon minsan naman ang mga kano ang nag bibigay ng kailangan nila may helicopter na pumupunta pero bawal na bababa sila so ang foods at medicines sa ganiyan sila nag su survived problema iyong maliit na ilog nila ang polluted just to think walang ilaw pa.Doon ako nakakita na mga batang malnourished na parang africa,that was 1975.Dahil sa Pinatubo baka wala na doon ang mga tao.Lets,all be happy na may mga taong nag ca care,gold ang time ni Gordon na every minute of the hour ini spend niya ang time niya sa trabahong matino dahil kulang pa ang time at pera nila sa mga taong dapat tulungan,hindi man nila ma perfect at least ma save nila ang iba dahil limit din ang trabaho nila.Buong Pilipinas,kung saan man may nangangailangan ng tulong always ready sila.See Translation

Mary Ann Del Mundo
Mary Ann Del Mundo I’ve searched the web looking for, what she so called, Red Cross vehicle with Sen. Gordon’s face emblazoned on it and found none. Even in reality, I never encountered such. If you can challenge her to produce an unedited and unadulterated photo, that would somehow shed light to the discussion.

Her accusation is very subjective and speculative. Election of 2013 happened in May. Typhoon Yolanda wreaked havoc in November. I do not see any reason for Senator Gordon to campaign amidst the destruction because it is way past the election and way too early for the next. Granted that she indeed saw a Red Cross vehicle with Sen. Gordon’s face on it, definitely, that was not intentional nor promotional. Who, in a right mental framework, would even thought of such selfish act at the very center of misery and tragedy? That was an urgent response for help, Sen. Gordon would not even bother to choose what vehicle to use. Hill Roberts should think in a broader perspective and objectively. She had focused and dwelt on the minutest detail yet overlooked the most significant ones. Sen. Gordon’s great act of heroism and stewardship. He was among the earliest to respond to the disaster and brought relief. No one can contest to that.

As to the present , Sen Gordon has the most comprehensive and extensive recovery, restoration and rebuilding programs for Yolanda victims.

Marcial Bonifacio
Marcial Bonifacio Magandang punto, Mary, kaibigan ko. Mukhang improbable ang kanyang allegation, nguni’t gusto ko ng kanyang sagot in order to be fair sa kanya.

Hill de Roberts
Hill de Roberts Look Mary Ann . I know where you’re going on this. I run political sites myself and join other political sites. I am not nit-picking here . However, it was morally wrong for Gordon to promote himself at a time when the calamity was fresh–where tens of thousands died, where tens of thousands lost their homes properties mementos etc, where to this day , tens of thousands are living in abject poverty

Hill de Roberts
Hill de Roberts He showed what a typical Filipino politician he was when he emblazoned and publicized himself in that manner. It shows lack of tact and deeper understanding of a calamitous and dangerous situation.

Hill de Roberts
Hill de Roberts Gordon had shown, that time, that he was capable of promoting himself regardless of what just happened

Hill de Roberts

Mayor pa siya sa Gapo ganiyan na ang gawa niya.President nga hindi pinapansin ang mga tao sa pangangailangan nila.It looks like this Hill Robert hindi gusto si Gordon baka hindi siya napansin sa Tacloban?.Nasa Swiss na ako dami mong maririnig na nagawang maganda ni Gordon ng Haiyan,bakit tayo pa pa bothered sa taong ito?.I’m crying for 3 nights just looking at the people in Tacloban.Does she knows the difference of time to all Red Cross staff to go there and organized everything?.Look whose talking?.What Hill Roberts doing at that time?.Is she also for humanitarian organization?.What she does in Tacloban during that time?.Dick Gordon is not like some God who descended from Heaven,its only her impression.Frankly speaking,this Hill Roberts need attention.She can show it at that time without waiting for a long time.Nor using this issue for now kind of fishy.Or she can write Dick Gordon about it.

Gilbert Menchu
Gilbert Menchu What happened at that time to go back and get bothered by this Hill Roberts and will tell us sooner or later,media mainstream,and newspaper?.will show photos of vehicles with Gordon they can do that before.Directly,at that time they have tv camera etc..big proffessional camera this Robert Hill on that time she can talked to the media if she want too.What is her purpose in telling this now?.Is she running in politics?.Or she is here because she had nothing to do or say?.

Mary Ann Del Mundo @Ms. Hill Roberts, just so you know, no one deletes replies here. This discussion encourages everyone to freely voice out his opinion and make a stand but within the confines of truth and respect. But this does not mean that your allegations will be disrespected. In fact we are trying to shed light to it. Your allegation will remain as such until you show proof.

Here, we deal with issues and not with heresays. Not even emotions. We aim to promote the truth and equip the people with sustainable knowledge and awareness based on facts We don’t attack individuals, we simply align their acts and concepts to conform with veracity and accuracy, if we deem necessary.

Sen. Gordon is our leader and our only hope. Whoever disrespects and dishonors him will be on the same hotseat that you’re currently in. We aim to impact change in our land, influence the people’s voting behaviors by empowering them with the truth. This is for our children and yours too…we just cannot afford that HOPE be dampened with lies, indifference and selfish intentions.

Marcial Bonifacio Hill, salamat sa sagot mo. As one who cares deeply about the welfare of our country, I work painstakingly to vet our public servants. Kung totoo ang iyong paninindigan, meron kapintasan sa aking kahusayan sa paghatol. Kaya nga I seek to clarify things. Samakatuwid, kaibigan ko, please answer the following questions para sa akin at para sa ating bayan:

1. Why is the Net devoid of such a controversial news story or photograph?

2. How can the inconsistency in the time of Yolanda (November) and the 2013 election (May) be reconciled as Jonatas and Mundo have pointed out?

3. Kung tama ka, is it possible that such an alleged emblazoning was done without Gordon’s order, which many may have mistakenly viewed as self-promotion?

Mary Ann Del Mundo
Mary Ann Del Mundo @Ms. Isa Lan’s comment. Thank you. This is an eye opener. So much has been published and said about Sen. Gordon’s unprecedented accomplishments. But what you shared is so important. Your personal revelation and testimony of Sen. Gordon’s selfless giving of his time and resources, to the extent of embracing self sacrifices, is truly remarkable. Very noble indeed!

Gilbert Menchu
Gilbert Menchu His a noble person Dick Gordon you said it right.When i was young na nakita ko sila na ang nanay niya nagtatalumpati sa harap ng mga tao.Andoon ang mga artista na si Vilma Santos at Gloria Romero as thier guest malapit sa bahay nila or tapat ng Restaurant nila.Bata pa si Dick pero my impression he will be a great and noble man.Still some day i do hope na maging President siya ng Pilipinas.Kailangan ng support ng mga tao.Ayaw lang niyang gumastos ng malaki sa campaign pero siguro kung maaga pa sasabihin niya mga tao maaaring tulungan din siya.Kasi sayang ang mga ideas niya sa Bansa natin at sa mga tao kung di niya gagamitin.At maraming matutulungan at ma sa saved siyang tao lalo na iyong mga nasa bundok or liblib na lugar.Maintenance na gamot ng matatanda etc…Save life at magandang example ang tinuturo niya sa mga kabataan.Mahirap pasukan ang politics pero mahirap din kung walang matinong politician.We all need Dick Gordon,kasi siya lang ang talagang Filipino na maka tao at maka bayan.Priceless ang ginagawa nilang mga volounteers.Sila pang mga walang sweldo na mas marami ang trabaho.So respect…all what they need.See Translation

“We are here tonight to pay tribute to the Philippines. To you volunteers, to you staff of the Philippines Red Cross who make us so proud. You cannot imagine how many times I go to meetings and get congratulated for the work that was done in Haiyan. I had not joined the Red Cross at that time. But I am still reaping the benefit of being congratulated. You cannot imagine how many times, when the next Typhoon season came, and because of preparedness we did not have the same catastrophic situation that we had before, I was still the one being congratulated for the wonderful work the Red Cross is doing, without ever having been in the Philippines myself.

Tonight let me tell to you, to you who deserve all the thanks and congratulations for which so many of us are being thanked and congratulated for: to say thank you, and to say congratulations for the wonderful work you are doing.

And we are here also to pay tribute to leadership. To your leadership, Chairman Gordon, I would say, Governor Gordon because to me you are a member of our board, you are known to be the Chairman of the Philippines Red Cross, and I have nothing to tell you about that you know that much better than I do. But I can tell you something about Governor Gordon on the Board of the IFRC.

The same voice of reason, the voice of compassion, the voice of commitment that reminds us that we should not be complacent, we have to be angry when we have to be, we have to be sad when we have to be, we have to shout when we have to, but also, you have to share love, solidarity, hope, and remind ourselves that we are not helpless in the face of the many challenges that we have.

So, sir you are a son of the Philippines but you no longer belong to the Philippines alone, because of the message you carry which is a universal message, a universal message, the message of the Red Cross. So let me salute you and thank you for your leadership. Thank you, Sir.

IFRC SECRETARY GENERAL, ELHADJ AS SY
Remarks at the welcoming dinner
Manila Conference on Migration
12 May 2015

Good evening.
Colleagues, friends, distinguished guests, our young volunteers, volunteers of the Red Cross.
We are here tonight again as a beautiful rainbow community, united by our shared humanity. Because that is what we are about. We as the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement: always there, on the side of the communities in need, to accompany them to respond to their needs, wherever those needs are.
And that is exactly what is taking us in the homes of the elderly. That is what is taking us on the streets among young people. That is what is taking us in the most dangerous places where we confront armed conflict. That is what is taking us when we witness an outbreak of an epidemic.
At times when everybody runs away, we run in, because we are the Red Cross and the Red Crescent.
We are almost there and almost everywhere, in 189 countries all over the world. We are always there and in almost every community, where we live, where we work, and where we belong to. We are 17 million volunteers. And it is such a privilege to be a part of this Movement.
And every time we witness such a hardship, it is always the young volunteers who come forward and make a very simple but profound statement: “If we don’t do it, who is going to do it?”
Now when we met young volunteers in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, when people died of Ebola and then they had been abandoned in mortuaries, they came forward and asked: “If we don’t bury them, who will?”
When Homs became ruins, and we already lost more than 42 volunteers of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, it was again a young volunteer who came forward: “We have to be here because if we don’t do it, who will?”
When we witnessed the Typhoon of Haiyan in this country of the Philippines, it was you here who came forward with a simple plain statement: “If we don’t do it, who will?”
When Nepal is, today, affected by an earthquake is not over, because there was another shock registered today, who was there first: that was again our volunteers.
I was so thrilled to meet just outside to meet the Filipino team who was there. Motivated and moved by the same slogan: “If it is not us, who will?”
And for the same reason today, when people ask us “Why are you working on migration?” I can give the same, simple answer: “If we don’t do it who will?” We do it because it is not about migration. We do it simply because it is about people. It is about people that remind us our shared humanity. It is about people like you and me: about fathers and mothers and daughters and sons, who put themselves on the move in the search of a better life to care for their families, care for their children.
Where they are coming from, the many countries they travel through, until their point of destination, in each of those places there is a Red Cross, there is a Red Crescent society. So we are better placed than everybody, then, to prepare them, to accompany them, and to welcome them to where they are.
So if we don’t do it, then who will?
I think that is what is uniting us here today, to show that humanity, to show that universality. Again: it is no matter where it is happening. Whatever touches on one part of our fellow human being touches us all, no matter where. And we are here to show that unity, to show that commitment, to show that we care, to show that compassion. And then to show that we have the knowledge, we have the expertise, we have the resources, we have the means to do that, because we are this formidable Movement that is anchored in the values of our Principles, but also in the values of the community, the societies where we live and where we work.
But we are here today to pay tribute to partnership. This conference is not the first one, it will not be the last. It started already in many other places like in Doha. The issues have been discussed in many other forums like in our Governing Board, in many other meetings where our technical people never stop drawing attention to this issue, never stop also searching for solutions to respond to the needs of the people.
But we are also here tonight to pay tribute to the Philippines. To you volunteers, to you staff of the Philippines Red Cross who make us so proud. You cannot imagine how many times I go to meetings and get congratulated for the work that was done in Haiyan. I had not joined the Red Cross at that time. But I am still reaping the benefit of being congratulated. You cannot imagine how many times, when the next Typhoon season came, and because of preparedness we did not have the same catastrophic situation that we had before, I was still the one being congratulated for the wonderful work the Red Cross is doing, without ever having been in the Philippines myself.
Tonight let me tell to you, to you who deserve all the thanks and congratulations for which so many of us are being thanked and congratulated for: to say thank you, and to say congratulations for the wonderful work you are doing.
And we are here also to pay tribute to leadership. To your leadership, Chairman Gordon, I would say, Governor Gordon because to me you are a member of our board, you are known to be the Chairman of the Philippines Red Cross, and I have nothing to tell you about that you know that much better than I do. But I can tell you something about Governor Gordon on the Board of the IFRC. The same voice of reason, the voice of compassion, the voice of commitment that reminds us that we should not be complacent, we have to be angry when we have to be, we have to be sad when we have to be, we have to shout when we have to, but also, you have to share love, solidarity, hope, and remind ourselves that we are not helpless in the face of the many challenges that we have.
So, sir you are a son of the Philippines but you no longer belong to the Philippines alone, because of the message you carry which is a universal message, a universal message, the message of the Red Cross. So let me salute you and thank you for your leadership. Thank you, Sir.
Indeed many of us come here today to say: let’s for one moment try to give back a little bit to you who give so much, travelling across oceans on the other side of the world. So then if you call, and maybe if the small just return that we travel the way back to be together with you.
When we talk about this issue of course, we can see the best in human beings as we can see the worst in human beings. We see stigma, we see discrimination, we see xenophobia, we see abuse, we see racism, and we cannot deny that, because so many of our fellow human beings suffer from that. On the other hand, we can also see the best in human beings. Care, compassion, respect, trust. What is more trustful than taking your own family and entrusting them to a so-called domestic worker to care for your children, to care for your sick mother, and then to take care of your full house when no one is around. What is also more about care and compassion than to have a domestic worker to love a child more than her own child who she left behind in her home country. To care for an elderly woman like she would care for her own mother. And if we do not see there a lesson for humanity, if we do not see there a message of the best in us, then we are missing something.
We are the Red Cross and Red Crescent. We are here to fight the worst and we are here to support the best. And we are so glad and privileged to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. And that is what commitment and leadership is about at the end of the day, leadership is nothing if it is not leading to the solution. And to you, many of the leaders coming here joining Chairman Gordon on that same journey, and to you the young people who are taking us through a leadership journey into the future, for leaders, and let me assure you that as an IFRC; we will always be on your side to accompany you to that journey of humanity.
Thank you.

Of SCOOTERS, JEEPNEYS, BUSES, and AIRPLANES: A Simple Case Against Gibo, Noynoy, and Manny Villar for President in 2010

Updated 05/07/2010

By Marcial Bonifacio

My Friends, were it not for Senator Richard Gordon’s diverse experience in general and his experience as an executive in particular, I would very likely cast my vote for Manny Villar. Executive experience is often taken for granted, but is perhaps the most significant quality for the highest executive office in RP. In general, the function of an executive is to execute or enforce rules, policies, or laws. This involves managing people or institutions. Thus, the executive function can be and often is performed by a business manager, a military general, or a mayor. Even a Senate Committee chairman manages a committee of senators, so it is technically an executive function, although under the legislative branch. Specifically, the functions of the President are to be Chief of State and Commander-in-Chief of all the Armed Forces of the Philippines and since he must manage twenty departments, the importance of executive experience could not be stressed enough. By contrast, the primary function of the legislative branch is to form a framework by which rules, policies, or laws are made for the executive to carry out. The legislative function is performed by a board director, architect, wedding planner, designer, or senator.

Upon pondering this simple example, one should clearly grasp the importance of the executive function and its application to electing the President. Consider a situation wherein you must choose a personal driver to transport you and your family or friends to any desired destination. If nothing else were an issue other than expertise and experience, in order to get the most value for your money, which of the following drivers would you hire for a long-term contract? A) a scooter driver. B) a jeepney driver. C) a bus driver. D) a bus driver who knows how to draw blue prints for buses. E) a bus driver and commercial airplane pilot and Harvard graduate, who also knows how to draw blue prints for buses. F) a 47-year Red Cross volunteer who can drive all of the above vehicles (except an airplane) with equal knowledge, skills, and experience as any of the above drivers (except the pilot) with additional experience in driving on slippery roads and storms.

Someone who is keen on the possibility of their changing circumstances would very likely hire Driver F, the driver who can drive all vehicles, since he would be getting more value for the same price. Although it may seem that Driver E would be able to drive smaller vehicles easily (thus making the need for Driver A obsolete), it may actually be more difficult for someone, lacking experience, to drive a scooter. This is due to the need for balancing skills and the small size and light weight of the scooter, which gives it more flexibility to maneuver easily within spatially limited areas and rugged terrain—a limit for the bus, airplane, and their drivers.

Also, the fact that Driver F can drive a jeepney gives this particular driver a unique skill, because a jeepney driver is a multi-tasker. While driving, he takes money from the passengers, counts the change, and delivers it to their rightful owner all with a single hand, even in the midst of bumper to bumper traffic and near accidental encounters with pedestrians who often run in the middle of a congested street to catch another jeepney. Additionally, his experience and skills in driving on slippery roads would enable him to maneuver a vehicle over a road with oil spills or anything making it slick. Driver D’s and Driver E’s knowledge and skills in making a blue print or putting a bus design on paper or piloting an aircraft would be completely useless, since a daily driver is needed, not a bus designer or daily pilot.

Now, let’s translate the hypothetical situation of hiring a driver to electing a president, bearing in mind that these are only general approximations that should not be taken literally. The different vehicles represent different levels (local, national) of governance and the different social sectors (public, business, civic) of an executive. It is notable that experience in local governance is essential, since it would give the President a more accurate view on the limits and capabilities of the provinces and cities on which to base policy decisions concerning resource production and distribution. Thus, an executive with only national level experience may underestimate or overestimate the effects of national policy on the local level due to his or her unrealistic goals or miscalculations.

Noynoy Aquino’s experience and expertise is confined to the legislative branch as a Senator with only minimal executive experience as the chairman of the Senate Committee on Local Government and vice-chairman of the Committee on Justice and Human Rights. Since he only has national level experience (symbolized by the bus) and is a law maker (symbolized by the blue print drawer), he would be represented by Driver D. However, Manny Villar’s executive experience is greater and more diverse, since it includes more Senate Committee chairmanships (Finance, Foreign Relations, Public Order, and Agriculture and Fisheries) and the business sector, as owner/manager of a home building business. Like Aquino, he is represented by Driver D.

Likewise, Gibo Teodoro has also served in Congress, but only as a House Representative (symbolized by the bus designer, since he is a lawmaker on the national level). The only distinctive, executive experience he has was when Teodoro was Colonel in the Philippine Air Force Reserve and Secretary of the Department of National Defense (represented by Driver D). However, since he is an actual commercial pilot, I have designated him as Driver E.

On the other hand, Richard Gordon is represented by Driver F, since he has the most diverse, executive experience (in the public, business, and civic sectors) on all levels of governance (local and national). On the national level (Driver C, the bus driver) of the public sector, Gordon held various chairmanships as Tourism Secretary (Philippine Tourism Authority, Philippine Convention & Visitors Corporation, Intramuros Administration, National Parks Development Committee, Philippine Commission on Sports Scuba Diving) and various Senate Committee chairmanships (Blue Ribbon, Constitutional Amendments and Revision of Laws, Tourism, Government Corporations and Public Enterprises, Foreign Policy). On the lower levels of governance, Gordon’s positions as Olongapo mayor and Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority chairman are represented by Driver A (the scooter driver) and Driver B (the jeepney driver). Like the jeepney driver, he is a multi-tasker, since he has and still holds positions in both the public and civic sectors simultaneously as a member of the Governing Board of the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Federation, chairman and CEO of the Philippine National Red Cross, and senator.

The different vehicles (in no particular order) also represent different social sectors (public, business, civic) in which Gordon has played an active role. I already indicated his public positions above as mayor, cabinet secretary, and senator. In the business sector, he was a manager for Procter and Gamble and Kong Commercial Philippines, Inc. In the civic sector, aside from being a Red Cross volunteer for 47 years, he was a commissioner for East Asia and the Pacific World Tourism Organization and held chairmanships in the Pacific Asia Travel Association and Boys Scouts of the Philippines.

Experience in driving in storms and slippery roads reflects the overwhelming odds stacked against Gordon to prevent him from overcoming great challenges to reach his goals. For example, he (as SBMA chairman) inspired thousands of volunteers to convert Subic Bay into an economic trade zone from a heap of ash caused by the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo after the American naval bases were recalled and thousands of jobs lost as a result. This conversion attracted hundreds of companies, which created nearly 100,000 jobs and was so successful that several world leaders, including President Clinton, impressively boasted about it as a model for economic development. Also, as Tourism Secretary, his social and managerial skills increased the number of tourists to 2 million up from 1 million in a single year, thereby creating even more jobs, although there were terrorist threats, civil war in Mindanao, coup attempts, and SARS.

As Red Cross chairman, and having traveled and provided his services throughout all of RP, Gordon knows exactly what preventive and safety measures need to be taken against man-made and natural disasters. He also knows precisely what resources and in what quantity need to be distributed to each disaster area, expertise which is indispensable for a country prone to such disasters.

My Friends, applying the same basic criteria from the “driver” model to selecting a President clearly shows Gordon to be the more qualified candidate based on experience and expertise alone. Although this work focuses on executive experience as the primary defense for Gordon, issues of credibility and trustworthiness are addressed with a debate between a Noynoy supporter and I in my previous blog here.

Furthermore, there is still time to reconsider your choice, if you have not yet selected Gordon. There is no shame or blame for rational, sensible voters to innocently make choices based on misinformation or lack of accurate information, but there is definitely shame and blame for those who knowingly continue to make unwise decisions—which will affect the entire country, despite their awareness of the facts.

My Friends, I plead with you to be one of those whose vote is the reason our kababayans will be proud to be kababayan. Ultimately your vote will be a choice between mediocrity and excellence, between popularity and merit, between knowledge attained from the school of academia and wisdom attained from the school of hard knocks, between hopeful promises and proven success, between economic recovery and First World status, and between a designing bus driver and a multi-skilled jeepney driver. In conclusion, let us all choose Richard Gordon, as our country‘s driver, who will direct and pull RP out of the pit of the financial crisis, back on to the road to prosperity, and ultimately, to First World status.

Aim High Pilipinas!

Sa Mga ISKUTER, DYIPNI, BUS, at ERUPLANO:
Isang Simpleng Kaso Laban Kina Gibo Teodoro, Nonoy Aquino, at Manny Villar Bilang Presidente sa 2010

April 6, 2010 at 2:24pm

Ni Marcial Bonifacio

Isinalin ni Din Laviste

Mga Kaibigan at Kababayan Ko, kung hindi pa lang sa malawak na karanasan ni Richard Gordon sa panlahat, at ang kanyang karanasan bilang ehekutibo (executive) sa partikular, si Manny Villar ang bobotohin ko. Ang karanasan bilang ehekutibo ay madalas na binabale wala, ngunit marahil iyon ang pinakamahalagang kalidad para sa pinakamataas na opisina ng Republika ng Pilipinas. Sa panlahat, ang trabaho ng isang ehekutibo ay ang pagpapaganap at pagpapatupad ng mga patakaran at batas, kasama ang pamamahala ng mga tao at institusyon. Sa gayon, ang trabahong ehekutibo ay maari, at madalas na ginagawa ng isang tagapamahala ng negosyo, heneral ng militar, o mayor. Kahit ang isang chairman ng Senate Committee ay namamahala ng komite ng mga senador kaya maari itong mapabilang sa ehekutibo, kahit nasa ilalim ng sangay ng lehislatibo (legislative). Mga tiyak na tungkulin ng Presidente ang pagiging Chief of State at Commander-in-Chief ng Armed Forces of the Philipines. Dahil kasama dito ang pamamahala ng dalawampung kagawaran, ang kahalagahan ng karanasan bilang ehekutibo ay higit na malinaw. Sa kabilang dako, ang pangunahing tungkulin ng lehislatibo na sangay ay ang maghulma ng istruktura na kung saan mga patakaran at batas ay ginagawa para ipatupad ng ehekutibo. Ang tungkulin bilang lehislatibo ay ipinamamalas ng isang board director, arkitekto, tagaplano ng mga kasal, tagadisenyo, o senador.

Kung iisipin ang halimbawang ito, dapat maintindihan ang tungkulin bilang ehekutibo at ang kahalagahan nito sa pagpili ng Presidente. Isipin ang sitwasyong kailangang pumili ng sariling drayber na magdadala sa iyo, pamilya mo at mga kaibigan sa kahit anong destinasyon. Kung lahat ay pareho maliban sa kadalubhasaan at karanasan, upang mapakinabangan nang lubos ang halaga ng pera, alin sa mga drayber ang kukunin mo sa isang mahabang kontrata? A) drayber ng iskuter. B) drayber ng dyipni. C) drayber ng bus. D) isang drayber ng bus na marunong gumuhit ng mga blue print ng bus. E) isang drayber nq bus at pangkomersyal na piloto ng eruplano na nagtapos sa Harvard, at marunong din gumuhit ng mga blueprint ng bus. F) isang 47 taong gulang na Red Cross volunteer at drayber na kayang imaneho ang lahat ng mga sasakyang ito (maliban sa eruplano), nang may pantay na kaalaman, kakayahan at karanasan sa mga nabanggit (hindi kasali ang piloto), at may dagdag na kaalaman sa pagmaneho sa mga madudulas na daan at bagyo.

Sa mga matalim na nakakakita sa posibilidad ng pabago-bagong kalagayan ay siguradong pipiliin ang Drayber F, ang kayang imaneho ang lahat ng mga sasakyan. Kahit na ang Drayber E ay tila mas madaling makamamaneho ng mas maliliit na sasakyan (kaya ang Drayber A ay magiging lipas), mas mahirap sa isang walang karanasan ang magmaneho ng iskuter. Ito ay dahil sa pangangailangan ng kasanayan sa pagbabalanse at sa liit at bigat ng iskuter, mas madali itong dalhin sa mga masisikip at mababatong lugar—isang limitasyon ng bus, eruplano, pati ng drayber nito.

Dahil ang Drayber F ay kayang imaneho ang dyipni, katangi-tangi ito sapagkat ang nagmamaneho nito ay isang multi-tasker. Habang nagmamaneho, tumatanggap siya ng bayad sa mga pasahero, binibilang ito, at ibinbalik ang sukli sa may-ari gamit lamang ang isang kamay, kahit sa gitna ng halos dikit-dikit na trapiko, o kamuntikang aksidente sa mga biglaang tumatawid sa daan para pumara ng ibang dyipni. Bukod dito, ang kanyang karanasan at kasanayan sa madudulas na daan ay makakatulong sa pagmamaneho sa mga oil spills o kahit anong tulad nito. Ang kaalaman ng Drayber D at Drayber E sa paggawa ng blue print o pagdisenyo ng bus sa papel ay hindi magagamit, dahil drayber ang kailangan at hindi designer o piloto.

Ngayon, isalin natin ang hypothetical na sitwasyon sa pagpili ng drayber sa pagpili ng presidente, habang isinasaisip na ito ay sa panlahat lamang, at hindi dapat literal ang pagintindi. Ang mga sasakyan kumakatawan sa iba’t ibang antas (lokal at nasyonal) ng gobyerno at iba’t ibang sosyal na sektor (pampubliko, pangnegosyo, pansibiko) ng ehekutibo. Mapapansin na ang karanasan sa lokal na gobyerno ay kailangan, dahil magbibigay ito sa Presidente ng wastong pananaw sa limitasyon at kapabilidad ng mga probinsya at mga lungsod, na gagamiting batayan sa mga desisyon sa produksiyon at distribusyon ng mga resources. Datapwat, ang ehekutibo, na hanggang nasyonal lamang ang karanasan, ay maaring hindi matantiya nang tama ang epekto ng mga nasyonal na patakaran sa lokal na antas dahil sa miskalkulasyon.

Ang kadalubhasaan at karanasan ni Noynoy Aquino ay nakakulong lamang sa lehislatibong sangay bilang senador, na may kakaunting ehekutibong karanasan sa pagiging chairman niya sa Senate Committee on Local Government at vice-chairman ng Committee on Justice and Human Rights. Dahil ang karanasan niya ay nasa nasyonal na antas lamang (nirerepresenta ng bus) at tagagawa ng batas (nirerepresenta ng tagaguhit ng blue print), maihahantulad siya sa Drayber D. Ngunit si Manny Villar ay mas malawak ang karanasan bilang ehekutibo, dahil kasali dito ang mas maraming chairmanships ng Senate Committee (Finance, Foreign Relations, Public Order, and Agriculture and Fisheries) at sa antas na pangnegosyo, bilang tagapamahala at may-ari ng negosyong konstruksiyon ng mga bahay. Tulad ni Noynoy, kinakatawan siya ng Drayber D.

Gayon din kay Gibo Teodoro na nanilbihan sa Kongreso, ngunit bilang isang House Representative ( sinisimbulo ng designer ng bus dahil tagagawa siya ng batas sa nasyonal na antas). Ang katangi-tangi na karanasan niya ay noong siya ay Colonel ng Philippine Air Force Reserve at Secretary ng Department of National Defense (nirerepresenta ng Drayber D). Ngunit, dahil siya ay isang aktwal na pangkomersyal na piloto, siya ay maitatalaga bilang Drayber E.

Sa kabilang dako, si Richard Gordon ay kinakatawan ng Drayber F, dahil siya ang may pinakamalawak na karanasan bilang ehekutibo (sa pampubliko, pangnegosyo, at pansibiko na sektor) at sa lahat ng antas ng gobyerno (local at nasyonal). Sa nasyonal na antas (Drayber C, ang drayber ng bus) ng pampublikong sektor, humawak si Gordon ng iba’t ibang chairmanships bilang Tourism Secretary (Philippine Tourism Authority, Philippine Convention & Visitors Corporation, Intramuros Administration, National Parks Development Committee, Philippine Commission on Sports Scuba Diving) at iba’t ibang chairmanships sa Senate Committee (Blue Ribbon, Constitutional Amendments and Revision of Laws, Tourism, Government Corporations and Public Enterprises, Foreign Policy). Sa mga mas mababang antas ng gobyerno, ang posisyon niya bilang mayor ng Olongapo at chairman ng Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority ay kinakatawan ng Drayber A (ang drayber ng iskuter) at Drayber B (ang drayber ng dyipni). Tulad ng drayber ng dyipni, multi-tasker siya, dahil hanggang ngayon, mayroon siyang mga posisyon sa pampubliko at pansibikong sektor na hinahawakan niya kasabay ng pagiging miyembro ng Governing Board of the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Federation at chairman at CEO ng Philippine National Red Cross at senador.

Ang iba’t ibang sasakyan (sa walang tiyak na ayos) ay kumakatawan ng iba’t ibang sosyal na sektor (pampubliko, pangnegosyo at pansibiko) na kung saan si Gordon ay may aktibong posisyon. Nabanggit ko na ang kanyang mga pampublikong posisyon bilang mayor, cabinet secretary at senador. Sa pangnegosyong sektor, naging tagapamahala siya para sa Procter and Gamble at Kong Commercial Philippines, Inc. Sa pansibikong sektor, bukod sa pagiging Red Cross volunteer ng 47 na taon, naging commissioner siya para sa East Asia and the Pacific World Tourism Organization at humawak ng mga chairmanships sa Pacific Asia Travel Association at Boys Scouts of the Philippines.

Ang karanasan sa pagmamaneho sa mga madudulas daan at bagyo nagpapahiwatig ng mga di maiiwasang pangyayari na susubok kay Gordon na di makamit ang kanyang mga layunin. Halimbawa, (bilang SBMA chairman) nabigyang inspirasyon niya ang libu-libong volunteers na baguhin ang Subic Bay na maging economic trade zone mula sa abo ng pagputok ng Mt. Pinatubo, matapos na tinanggal ang mga American naval base at libu-libo ang nawalan ng trabaho bilang resulta. Ang pagbabagong ito na nakaakit ng daan-daang kumpanya, na nakagawa ng mahigit 100,000 na trabaho, at higit itong matagumpay na iilang mga lider sa ibang bansa, kasama si President Clinton, ipinagmalaki ito bilang modelo ng ekonomikong pagsulong. Bukod dito, bilang Tourism Secretary, ang kanyang kakayahang sosyal at pamamahala ay dumulot ng pagtaas ng bilang ng mga turista hanggang 2 milyon mula sa 1 milyon sa isang taon, na nakadagdag sa mga trabaho, kahit na may mga pananakot ng mga terorista, sibil na digmaan sa Mindanao, mga coup attempt, at sakit na SARS.

Bilang chairman ng Red Cross at sa pagbibiyahe at pagbibigay serbisyo nya sa buong Pilipinas, alam ni Gordon kung ano ang mga panukalang makakatulong na makaiwas at makaligtas mula sa mga kalamidad na gawa ng tao at mga natural na kalamidad. Tiyak na nakakaalam din siya kung anong mga kailangan at dami ng mga resource na ipamimigay sa lugar ng kalamidad, isang kadalubhasaang higit na kailangan sa isang bansang madalas na dinadaanan nito.

Mga Kaibigan Ko, ang paggamit ng parehong pamantayan mula sa “drayber” na modelo sa pagpili ng Presidente ay nagpapakita na si Gordon ang kandidatong mas may kwalipikasyon batay sa kadalubhasaan at karanasan. Kahit ang obrang ito ay nakasentro sa karanasang ehekutibo bilang pangunahing depensa para kay Gordon, ang mga isyu ukol sa credibilidad at pagtitiwala ay kasama sa isang debate sa pagitan ng isang tagataguyod ni Noynoy at ako sa blog na ito.

Dagdag dito, hindi pa huli para baguhin ang desisyon, kung hindi mo pa pinipili si Gordon. Walang nakakahiya o may sala sa rasyonal na mga mamboboto na gumagawa ng desisyon dahil sa maling impormasyon, ngunit mayroong siguradong hiya at sala sa mga nakakaalam ngunit patuloy na gumagawa ng maling desisyon na makaaapekto ng buong bansa.

Mga Kaibigan Ko, nakikiusap ako na maging isa sa mga kababayang ang boto ang magiging dahilan na maipagmamalaki ang pagiging kababayan. Siguradong boto mo ay sa pagitan ng karaniwan at mahusay, sa pagitan ng popularidad at kalamangan, sa pagitan ng kaalamang mula sa libro at kaalamang praktikal, sa pagitan ng inaasahang pangako at napatunayang tagumpay, sa pagitan ng economikong paggaling at First World na katayuan, at sa pagitan ng drayber ng bus na nagdidisenyo at ng drayber ng dyipni na may malawak at iba’t ibang kasanayan. Ang konklusyon, piliin natin si Richard Gordon bilang drayber ng ating bansa, na gagabay sa Pilipinas palabas ng bangin ng pinansyal na krisis, patungo sa daan ng kaginhawaan at sa huli, makamtan ang First World na katayuan.

Aim high Pilipinas!

Rissa Manzano Broughton

Rissa Manzano Broughton i would likely to cast my vote to noynoy, he seems genuine and i hope he can do more changes to our country…. and i would like to see noynoy to be more than his parents. so having said that, please solve the land dispute in hacienda luisita…..

Gretchen Mae Ortega

Gretchen Mae Ortega the only reason there’s a mismanagement in the government is choosing the wrong leader…and sadly, most Filipinos have had lousy choices…vote for Gordon for a change…he’s the only chance to save this failing country…

Tapia Ramirez

Tapia Ramirez I am definitely voting for Gordon and Bayani. I used to be a supporter for NoyNoy…but his lackluster/below mediocre performance is very disappointing. I felt that the tax I paid him to do his job for years in the senate was ripped off. It’s true he had authored good bills…but the thing is, he was not assertive enough to push such bills… Why was Gibo able to have bills passed even if the bills were only about converting some road into a national road? Kung GUSTO talagang MAGLINGKOD…MAY PARAAN.

Gordon and Bayani have been doing public service even before their big positions in the government. Umunlad ang Subic. Umunlad ang Marikina. Sulit ang buwis na binabayad ng tao kina Gordon at Bayani.

Din Laviste

Din Laviste Mabuhay ka Ma’am Tapia.Sana maraming pang Pilipino ang maging tulad mo na pinahahalagahan ang pagboto sa susunod na presidente ng ating bansa, na syang mamumuno sa pagbabago at pagpaaunlad ng Pilipinas sa susunod na 6 na taon!

Din Laviste

Din Laviste I agree, Ms. Rissa, and being seemingly genuine is good, but if there is somebody who has proven his genuineness and dedication to the Filiipino people, would you vote for him instead? Here’s a man who shows that. He will get my vote for sure.- http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1375664401331…

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Sir Marvin, I hope you are not referring to Gibo, dahil kahit he may be qualified sa national defense and security, walang accomplishments and expertise sa other important fields as Gordon. Iyon ay kailangan that the President excel in all areas which this highest official position demands.

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie Unless God’s agenda is on the table no candidate can truly solve the luisita case, and the prevalent corruption in the government.

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie BRO.EDDIE IS THE RIGHT MAN FOR THE JOB NOT GORDON.

Precious Gomez
Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Sir Henry, marahil si Bro. Eddie pious o righteous siya, ngunit piety and righteousness alone will not create jobs, reduce poverty, relieve victims of natural and man-made disasters, or even curb corruption. What is needed is expertise and experience sa local and national governance, job creation and foreign investments, disaster relief, and implementation of the rule of law and the Constitution—all of which Bro. Eddie lacks. Would you trust him to perform a heart transplant on your ailing child? Would you trust him to design your house or manage your finances? If not, then how can you trust him to govern an entire country without any expertise or experience in doing so?

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Madame Precious, does your sentiment express that you are supporting Gordon—the most qualified presidentiable? If so, it will be a precious vote, talaga.

Faith M Reyes

Faith M Reyes Interesting read. Thank you for not insulting Manny Villar .Gordon has a good track record, no doubt. He made a name for himself. I was very impressed how he answered the questions at the De La Salle Zobel forum. Na turn off lang ako when he mentioned that Villar tried to buy him off for 1B. I’m very close to the family, and Villar is not that type of person as they paint him to be. Politics is so dirty. The Nationalista Party is trying to keep the campaign at a high level. I just pray that God will grant the Filipino people the wisdom to filter the truth from the lies. I love your closing lines, “My friends, I plead with you….”. Pwede ba palitan ng Manny Villar? ha ha. PEACE! If my candidate does not win, i will settle for anybody else except for 2 candidates (won’t mention it na, baka may mapikon pa). Continue writing…

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie A righteous man is what we need to lead our country. A man of excellence, a man with dedicated heart, a man with devotion with God, a man of interity and a man living by example. These virtues altogether is what our country needs today. It is only then that true transformation to our society could be realized. DR. EDDIE VILLANUEVA IS THE RIGHT MAN FOR THE JOB!

Clarence Brian Uy

Clarence Brian Uy Dun ako sa may napatunayan na… DICK GORDON lang at wala nang iba!

Alex Albania

Alex Albania Well said. I will vote for Dick Gordon as President and Bayani Fernando as Vice President. I will also campaign for them in my own little way.

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie sila ay mga robot. hindi sila puedeng magtanong. pag nagtanong ka delikado. sunud lang sila ng sunod. Ang tawag diyan ay kamay na bakal. kc tingin niya sa sarili ay napakatalino niya at ganoon din ang tingin sa kanya ng mga robot niya. ay tao bulag sa mensahe ng tunay na pagbabago. kumita na yan oy. Meron pang mas matalino sa kanya na naging presidente na at mas maraming nagawang mas maganda pa pero anong nangyari.

Clarence Brian Uy
Clarence Brian Uy Si Bro Eddie pa naman sinusuportahan nyo pero ang pag uugali nyo ay napakasama. may robot pa kayong nalalaman puro wala naman basehan pinagsasabi nyo.
kung sisiraan nyo rin lang ang kandidato namin, siguraduhin nyo lang na may basehan kayo para makahikayat kayo ng tao.
kung gusto nyong respetuhin kayo ng tao, matuto rin kayong rumespeto.

Faith M Reyes

Faith M Reyes Hello Mr. Manzano. I am an evangelical Christian and i have nothing against Bro. Eddie. In fact, I voted for him the last time he ran. But there is one question that bothers me, “Did Christ really speak to him?” i just want to get the truth from a loyal supporter.

Marc Angelo David

Marc Angelo David Everyone running for president has the leadership, but, do you thing this people you think qualified, are TRUE qualified????? do you think this people has the straight perseverance and knowledge to be good, have integrity, not corrupt, have compassion, have that commitment to lead our country?? think wisely, WE NEED THE PRESIDENT NOT ONLY QUALIFIED TO BE A LEADER, BUT WE NEED A PRESIDENT IN THE FEAR OF OUR LORD. hehe. God bless everyone!!!

Clarence Brian Uy

Clarence Brian Uy who accused first? bato-bato sa langit ang tamaan – SAPUL! grin emoticon

yes, I know that Sen.Gordon can’t please everybody. kaya nga po ipinapakita yung mga nagawa nya sa bayan at para mapaliwanagan. and I’m pretty sure that your friend from gapo doesn’t represents the whole Olongapo…. pano naman po yung friend ko rin na taga Olongapo na naniniwala sa kakayahan ni Sen.Gordon? I’m nothing against Bro.Eddie… I respect the man but I believe that Sen.Gordon is more qualified than him.

at basta Eddie KAYO, kasi GORDON KAMI…

Good day! ;D

MeAnn Manzano
MeAnn Manzano @Faith,why did u support Bro.eddie last election and why do u have that big question in ur mind..ur statement is very doubting.You have said “u want the truth”.
God deals differently with diff.people.Depende sa pagkilos ng banal na ispirito santo in the life of every individual.Only bro.eddie can answer that to you.
I believe in my heart,that the issue is not whether Bro.eddie got the message or not.The real issue is once we give our full support to someone,bec we believe in his principle and cruzade for truth and righteousness,then no more second thought..if u choose him this 2010,choose him not bec.of ur concern to that puzzle u have ,but support him bec u love God and ur country..and u want to be a part of history of the coming CHANGE in our country.Choose for yourself whom u will go..the choice is ours.

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie @Brian Pag me usok me sunog. How far do you know gordon. Or maybe he promised something to give you should he won or you have already what he had promised you. I don’t believe gords until his views remains to be secular. In fairness, Yes he is perhaps intelligent thus speaking to his track record and accomplishment with the use of kamay na bakal but it is not enough to do things right should the principle of God Almighty is not within the context of his proposals. There is only a genuine transformation in our society should our candidates have first and foremost an advocacy on the principle of God in their views of change. DIYOS AT BAYAN is the theme of BRO. EDDIE for a good governance and this is what our society needs today for the PAGBANGON NG PILIPINAS.

IF WE OBEY THE PRINCIPLE OF GOD THEN TRUE PROSPERITY TO OUR LAND FOLLOWS. This is a promise of God to those who obey Him. True prosperity speaks to peoples change of whole being (HEART) leading for the good governance. We cannot have a good government if the people leadinng us have still a compromise instinct for money consideration that makes them institutionalized their popularity as what you have known to your candidate.

How far do you love your country Brian? We cannot say we love our country simply by invoking true transformation APART FROM THE PRINCIPLE OF GOD.

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie @Faith When we abide by the Word of God we know that God Himself has been speaking to us. You became Christian because God’s word speaks to you and your views have changed from secular to Godly views. Even we live in this secular world what surrounds our whole being (heart) is the Word of God. No candidates can invoke true transformation to our society if the Word of God would not be a basis of change. God’s word speaks to Bro. Eddie and abide by it invoking the principle of God for a true transformation. With his faith in God he turned it into action that’s why he run for President thus his theme is DIYOS AT BAYAN. First and foremost God then people. Surely true prosperity to our land will follow!

Faith M Reyes
Faith M Reyes @Mary Ann Manzano, I already made a choice and just because I did not choose Bro. Eddie this 2010, it doesn’t make me less of a Christian and It doesn’t make me less patriotic. I just pray that God will give Bro. Eddie the strength to bring glory to GOD in all the things he does, and not to compromise his beliefs in order to gain support. Since now he is in the public eye, we don’t want anybody to stumble in their faith. It’s funny how easy it is for you to point out that my candidate has made himself popular because of his money. You don’t like him because he has money? Material blessings are also from God, and he has shared that blessings with many people even as a private citizen, before he even became a public servant.why such idle talk from a Christian? Yes, go and promote your candidate but let us not pass judgement on other people without hard evidence. I suggest you reflect on Matthew 12:35-37. T.H.I.N.K.? before you speak : is it TRUE? HELPFUL? INSPIRING? NECESSARY? KIND? If it doesn’t pass the test. I suggest you keep your opinion to yourself, otherwise u will have to give an explanation when you stand before the Lord.
@ Rizza, yes God speaks to me through his word . I believe as a Christian it’s our role to let others know about our candidates based on their own merits, by not putting down others. Truly the world is evil and we are not exempted from it. Each one of us has a role to play as it says in the bible, ” If my people will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then i will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and heal their land (2 chronicles :14). So let us fight a good fight and finish this race victorious in God’s eyes. May God bless the Filipinos!

Din Laviste

Din Laviste I respect all of your opinions and Im glad we all stand by our candidates but on the same plane, nobody can prove that Gordon isn’t righteous, just because he’s not a spiritual leader, nor can anybody prove that Bro. Eddie isn’t capable of corruption, just because he hasn’t been in the field of politics. One thing for sure, we have to choose the best leader, whom we think can transform this country, hasn’t just inspired people, but has shown proof of his abilities. Among them, I see this in Gordon, thats why I choose him.

MeAnn Manzano
MeAnn Manzano @Faith,no one stop you from choosing a traditional politician.I just answer that big question kuno that u have in ur mind.From the very start I know that you just wanted to make an issue about Bro.eddie becoz he is a preacher of the word of God.Alam ko ang gusto mong tumbukin.Nobody hates Gordon becoz of popularity due to riches.It so happened that we got God’s vision in this country,thats why we dont go for a lesser evil candidate.(In spiritual world may category sila,ask the christian community,baka isipin mo ina accuse namin na evil si Gordon).And what is that “idle talk “that ur saying.Everyone can give her/his opinion and pwede nating i “rebuttall’.And there u are sounding like a scribe and pharisee in the bible.If people say that event /things,perhaps yun ang totoo.Ang pagsbi ng totoo di paninira yan.Nasaktan lang tayo becoz we love our canditate.Let me quote what Joshua said to the Israelites when they wanted another God..”choose for yourself whom u will vote (paraphrasing)..but as for me and my hauz,we will go for the MAN OF GOD.After all,pag aari ng Diyos ang lahat ng bagay,pag aari ng Diyos si Bro.eddie and he is just taking the challenge of HIS AGENDA in this nation..
Kung ang mga merits or achievements lang ang standard ng Lord sa pagpili ng LIDER,then God will not choose ang isang walang alam at neophyte na David,instead God will go for Davids brother na mga veterans na ng Israel.And Israel is God’s finest pattern and example of every nation.
Kung mag bo boast lang ng mga achievements at dun tayo sa maraming ginawa,then we should go for ERAP or sa other candidates..Pero sinusunod ko lang ang tamang prinsipyo ng Diyos.We do not know what will happen tomorrow.Sa kanya ang langit at lupa,walang pwedeng magmalaki..pwede nyang gunawin ito ay pwede din nyang i-bless if He wants..

MeAnn Manzano

MeAnn Manzano This 2010 election is not an ordinary election.It will open the gate of the 490th year (2011)that wil usher in the new season of God for my beloved country. Daniel 9:24 is a prophetic declaration that trumphets the beginning of a nEW TRANSFORMED PHILS,coinciding with the commemoration of the 490th year of spanish colonization and entrance to Christianity!We should arise and seize our destiny.Pray and take action!we pray that God will move in a massive way,the spirit of corruption will be broken and there will be a ZERO-CORRUPTION country!A ZERO-PORNOGRAPHY.A ZERO-POVERTY if Filipinos will commit themselves in genuine RIGHTEOUSNESS AND LOVE OF GOD becoz “righteousness exalts a nation”..All THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO GOD and for those who believe..we call that” FAITH”..

Faith M Reyes
Faith M Reyes @Mary ann, I’m not making an issue about brother Eddie..nor am I putting him down nor am I making insinuations from the question “kuno” I asked. I just wanted to confirm if it was true, so dont be highstrung about it. But the way u are talking..it seems wala nang mabuti kundi si Bro. Eddie. Let us not be self righteous and arrogant, like the pharisees were. How can you pre-judge that Gordon or Manny Villar are not God’s children and that they are more evil than Bro. eddie? In fact, Manny Villar is a Christian
and he is married to Cynthia who was born to an evangelical christian family. They had a christian wedding was officiated by Pastor Rigos (UCCP).He was already a self made man before he entered politics. He stood for what is right by impeaching Erap, even if it meant losing his so called friends. Because he believed in God’s eyes it was the right thing to do. “If people say that event/thing perhaps totoo” (from you)- not everything that comes out is true, because Satan is the father of lies and deception, so we need God’s discernment in all things. Yes, nasasaktan ko dahil pamilya ko and tinitira mo. Sometimes people get turned off not by the candidates , but by the people around them, and their supporters. Let us just be careful of what we say and do, because it reflects the true condition of our hearts. Peace, Maryann…good luck with your campaign . Let us continue to pray for our country and the coming elections. KEEP the FAITH!

MeAnn Manzano

MeAnn Manzano not all are God’s children..only those who accepted HIM as their Lord and personal savior and LORD of their LIVES!(JOHN 1:12),Alam mo yun di ba?Some are just created being by God,walang pinagkaiba sa mga puno at ibang creation ng Lord.In the christian community,we call those who did not do and not doing the will of God,the agenda of God as lesser evil,nagbo boast sila sa secular achievements..sa mga mabubuting gawa.In the judgement day,susunugin lang ang mga bagay na yan na parang dayami.ask ur elders about this,Yes u are correct u need discernment as a self-confessed christian.Even u have a christian wedding it does not mean that u are a GENUINE christian.Maraming gumagawa ng ganyan.It is deep in meaning,it is Christ-like character.Kristiyano sa puso not sa nguso ang hinahanap ng Diyos.Di namin tinititra ang family mo.Dont be super sensitive. So kanino ka bang kamag anak,kay Gordon or kay Villar..kung kanino ka man..its not our business.We just answer your BIG QUESTION in your mind whether” God speaks to Bro.Eddie”..Now I know u got d answerto that very intriguing question that u have for so many years.

MeAnn Manzano

MeAnn Manzano God wants the destiny of a nation to be fulfilled.He calls for a leader who will rescue them,lead them out of slavery and bring them to their designated land of freedom and prosperity.Only those who have a geuine passionate love for God and country can do that..Bro.Eddie!

Marc Angelo David

Marc Angelo David ate Mary Ann. don’t nid to debate with every person. just claim and declare that only the leader that have fear and guidance in the Lord will win this election. we know hu will win. God bless!!

MeAnn Manzano

MeAnn Manzano @ marc..yes u arecorrect.We really need to be vigilant in prayers.Sometimes we need to answer some issues as well.Mapalad ka if at ur early age,nagagap mo na ang dakilang layunin ng Lord sa ating bansa.God bless us all.

Marc Angelo David

Marc Angelo David @ate Mary Ann. hehe tnx sa advise ate, actually in my age, I have been ministering to my classmates and friends. sharing every word of God, and leading them to the real truth. winning souls and making diciples. thats are goal and vision. God bless!!

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie It is only when rigtheousness reigns in our society that God exalts our nation. A righteous society can only be fulfilled if and only if our leader adheres to the rightroeusness of God. No man is righteous before God when he has not right relationship with God, which can only be attained by having our whole being duly submitted to the will of God. Remember that history repeats itself. Our country today is like Sodom and Gomorrah of the Old Testament which was destroyed by God because of wickedness. The Deluge event during the time of Noah the people failed to discern God’s will and despite Noah’s warning people remained on their unbelief so God destroyed them. Although God did say that He will not destroy His creation by flood so He sent Jesus to rescue us from the plunder of our sins by turning to God through the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus said “I am the way, the life and the truth . . .” (John 14:6). “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. . .” (John 1:12). To believe is an action word not a passive one. Thus if we are children of God we will fight for his principle.

The transformation that God wants to happen in our country is a kind of transformation based on His principle and not on the principle of men. God has the right to say so. After all this world does not belong to us anyway. Should we insist human principle to reign in this world then God allow it to happen since He had given us free choice but we should not be surprised of the horrible consequence.

When Bro. Eddie ran for presidency last 2004 was a warning to us to open our eyes of the consequences that would happen should a man of God would be turned down. It is not His WILL that His man would lose but He just simply ALLOWED it to happen for us to see the consequence of our own choosing as it does happen now in our society.

BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE WILL CONTINUE ON FULFILLING THE WILL OF GOD IN OUR LIVES. THUS, WE ARE SOLID FOR BRO. EDDI VILLANUEVA – YASAY TANDEM FOR THE PAGBANGON NG PILIPINAS.

Inri Manzie @Faith yan c Ka Mary Ann. Activista yan dati na binago ng Diyos ang buhay kaya alam niya ang takbo ng kaisipan ng mga kandidato. Me mga kandidato rin na dating mga activista pero sila’y nasilaw sa pera at power at iyong ipinaglalaban nila noon ay nilonok na lang nila. e kc tao. hehehe

I think Gresito is right. . . Hindi pde pagsamahin ang simbahan and ang politics. . . . . Hindi lamang puro faith, prayers and kabaitan kailangan sa politics.. Dpat may talino ka din and diskarte. .
Ikaw nga pinaka relihiyoso at pinakamabait na tao pero lam mo ba solusyonan ang problema ng bansa?
Hindi ganun kadali maging presidente, people should realize that,
Faith M Reyes
Faith M Reyes @ Mary ann, I know we are not all God’s children. Are you omniscient to say that Manny Villar doesn’t have a personal relationship with Christ? That’s between him and God, and not for you to judge.
Based from the Old testament, God doesn’t only use “godly” and righteous people. In Isaiah 44: he used a pagan, a non believer, Cyrus (the King of Persia) to build the temple in Jerusalem. So, let us not be presumptuous that God can only use Bro. Eddie, and not the other candidates to drive our nation to prosperity.
We studied Daniel 9 , and that is the prophecy regarding Israel and the exact date when Jesus Christ was crucified (483 yrs from the time the temple was built, which is 173,880 days based on the hebrew calendar). The prophecy was fulfilled 2000 yrs ago and it will never happen again. LOGIC: Israel is not the philippines, nor is the Messiah, Bro. Eddie.
Let us be grounded in truth for many false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead even the elect (Matthew 24:23-24)
Let us also be warned by Rev 22: 7 ” I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. If anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book”.
I just wanted to share this in the spirit of love, after all it is our duty to spread the True Gospel of Christ and not the gospel of prosperity.
ALL prophecies in the Bible are 100% accurate. What happens if Bro. Eddie doesn’t win, if you claim he is the anointed one? What happens if in 2011, the Year of Jubilee is not fulfilled? If the message of the prophet came from the LORD, it ALL shall come to pass. If it doesn’t , then you have been dooped by a false prophet. ” They have fooled you by disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. I’m not surprised ! Even Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11: 13-14)The lesson is we always have to go back to source of truth: not our pastors or ministers, but the Bible.

MeAnn Manzano
MeAnn Manzano @Faith,how do u know that Villar has a deep and personal relationship with God?I’m not judging him,don’t be super defensive about him becoz u dont know also his relationship with God.And its not our business to know whether he has a deep relationship with God or not.The people of the Phils know that..People can judge..Sa mga controversy na involve sya.
Yes Cyrus is not a SERVANT of God,(but he is also a believer of God.Ezra1:1-4)The book of 2 chronicles ends with Cyrus asking for volunteers to return to Jerusalem to “build” “the house of the LOrd”.that was the fulfillment of prophecyin Isaiah 44:28, So..inaamin pala natin na pagano si Villar at gagamitin sya ng Lord.Cyrus was a king of pERSia.Ano ba si villar?King of persia?What is the spiritual implication of a Persian king?Kaya nga ginagamit din ng Lord ang mga” lesser evil”.Now u are accepting that they belong to the” persian community”.True that Dniel 9:20-24 is for the deliverance of Israel,but we claim also that prophecy for the Phils.We must understand that Israel was the Lord’s EXAMPLE (LOGIC PO ITO) and pattern to the nations on how He deals with other nations.(YUn ba ung turo sa inyo,kahit katoliko alam na dapat gawing pattern ito. )Gabriel revealed to Daniel that Israel was entering a new season of restoration.(We claim that for the phils also.) after 7 sets of 70 years(490)of God’s dealing with her sins.Magellan discovered the Phils in 1521,in 2 years time,it will be 490 years and we will complete the prophetic completion of 7 sets of 7o years.i’m sure u know the significance of the 70 “7 “weeks.And we are looking forward for that.
Let me tell u my friend that we are not CLAIMING (nor he claims)that bro.eddie is a Messiah in the very literal meaning of the word.I dont know how u interprete the verses that u had quoted.it’s all about FASE TEACHING and misinterpretation of the word of God as well as taking it in a literal way, and the persecution of those who follow Jesus life and teachings.If ever ur faith is completely diff from us,the way we interprete the word of God,then let it be that way.God is the only one who can tell whether we are genuine believers of the body of Christ.U go for ur candidate and we go for the man of God..

John Bryan Bernel @lawrence: alam naman ni bro. eddie yun. pastor nga siya diba? bishop cya ng fastest growing church. sa tingin mo sa 31 years ng church na un hindi pa nya naglimpse ung “Faith without work is dead”? heto. view bro. eddie as a Filipino muna. He is a filipino, dating activist, full blooded democrat at graduate cya ng commerce major in economics minor in finance, and underbar pa kung tawagin dahil nagaral din siya ng abogasya. madami cyang achievement if academics lang ang usapan.

MeAnn Manzano
MeAnn Manzano hahahaha! desperado na ba@hayaan mo babangon na ang Pinas,babangon na rin ang mga apathetic-minded Filipinos.Ther will be a paradigm shift among the Pinoys from being naive to liberal-mindedness.Mababago din ang mindset nila na”dapat off limits sa politics ang mga nagdadala ng salita ng Diyos.”..di naman sila alien in this country..Everyone has the right to participate in the electoral process and every Filipino citizen can run in the office of the president as long as he/she passed the requirements.Pag nag charter change ,baka yung iba i propose na i amend ang constitution at sabihing…”hoy.. mga preachers bawal tumakbo sa gobyerno,!Ipikit nyo na lang ang inyong mga mata sa corruption injustices ng bansa!”
pag ganun ang aking bansa..mamumundok na lang ako!At least dun di ko makikita ang tunay na sitwasyon ng bansa.I will just enjoy the lovely nature that God created..

MeAnn Manzano

MeAnn Manzano hehhe..correct ka dyan!Let us all believe that the rebuilding of the Phils will be possible with the help of GOD and our collective participation.Let us be all like NEHEMIAH sought to know the state of his countrymen(Nehemiah1:2) and took specific steps to address the current situation of his people(Neh.1:4-11)..and believed in God’s suffficient provision and sure promises..(Neh.2:20)..God bless the Phils..malapit na!

John Bryan Bernel

John Bryan Bernel yeah! smile emoticon God bless us all.

Arise Philippines. Your time has come. Parang Lazarus lang nu? XD

Inri Manzie
Inri Manzie Personal relationship and right relationship with Christ are two different things with different meanings A husband and wife have personal relationship to one another when they are bind together either by virtue of matrimonial ceremony solemnized by proper authority and THEY BECOME ONE FLESH or by mutual agreement as live in only which is very common in our society today. Even iyong mag boyfriend e meron personal relationship when they submit themselves to one another in every way. Personal relationship per se which adheres with the sanctity of marriage rules could be considered a right relationship.
It became a common knowledge and belief though that when a person goes to the church attending Mass every Sunday has personal relationship with God. By tradition ito iyong kinamulatan natin. However, personal relationship with Christ (God) is much deeper than that for it is an INTEPERSONAL UNION with Him which is established through our own free will and conviction by accepting Christ as our personal Savior and Lord of our life preceded by the confession of our sins. OUR UNION WITH CHRIST IS LIKE A HUSBAND AND WIFE evidenced by baptism with water (hindi iyong infant baptism) as our public testimony that we are indeed a believer in Him. Fulfilling the mandate of acceptance will also lead us to a right relationship with Him as we go on applying the Word of God in our lives so that we may also become an instrument of change for everyone and for our country as a whole within the context of God’s principle . Being an instrument thus needs to translate it with our personal action.
Yes we are not omniscient as God does but when we adhered to the Word of God we can discern the thinking of a man. It is God who gives us discernment as we obey His Word. When God commissioned Moses to speak with Pharaoh for the release of Israel but Moses refused knowing that Pharaoh would not listen to Him. But God told Moses that he would be made like God to Pharaoh (Ex. 7:1). What God said to Moses is also the same today. He will commission a man of God to preach and to execute what He desires for all His created human beings. When God commission His man it is not literally face to face. It is the Scriptures speaking. When we are convicted by the Word according to the ability God given us and we know we can do it then we must do it today for tomorrow could be too late.
The fact that Bro. Eddie lose on the 2004 Presidential election does not mean he was a loser at all. God simply allowed such thing to happen for us to see the consequence of our own choosing. It serves as an opener for us to see the corruption that plagued the system of our government. In today’s race, it is the will of God for Bro. Eddie to run for presidency knowing that he has the will to deliver true transformation in our society within the context of God’s principle.
The plunder of corruption in our society is prevalent. Corruption is not just a disease in our government but a parasite that poisoned the mind of the Filipinos down to the lower level of our society saying “WHOEVER WINS IT’S THE SAME”. This is the effect to peoples’ mind implanted by our leaders by their deeds.
Peoples clamor prosperity minus corruption within the context of transformation. Every candidate has this agenda in their political platform. Some used to believe that only a candidate who is known for his riches or track record or intelligence or all of these can bring them prosperity. Other believed that popularity is enough to deliver them from poverty. These are the crook thinking of people not having learned a lesson of the past, even the current administration. This is because they don’t know the will of God in their lives. Unless our leader doesn’t abide by with the Word of God as light to his governance he cannot deliver our society from the curse of corruption. We boldly testify of this as we thus have experienced it today.
The Word of God says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jer 29:11). God speaking to us that true prosperity will be in our hand should we return to Him.

We have our own votes cguro. Solid Eddie kami. and Gordon kayo. and sa tingin ko kahit ano pag patatalak natin dito kung tlgang solid ay solid. we have our own point of views.

Bro.eddie never use any tricks or nag-ibang anyo..like acting na super malinis at mabait at matino….His life is transparent before the eyes of the body of Christ and befor the eyes of the people..thats why so many people are supporting him,helping him,giving sacrificial offering for the “good fight” and for the cause of Genuine change..Lahat ng candidates want the good of this country..marahil sincere sila that they really want to serve the Pinoys..but we have our own standard of choosing a genuine righteous candidate..as for me..i would rather go on the biblical basis of electing “David “in my generation..that’s why I am for Bro.eddie..

Jose A. Acelajado

Jose A. Acelajado John Bryan, Mary Ann, Ok, may respeto tayo sa isa’ isa, nag papalitan lang tayo kuro-kuro for a better Philippines! Para kung sino man manalo, sama-sama tayo, tulong tulong sa iisang Pilipinas! Mabuhay ka kapatid!

Faith M Reyes

Faith M Reyes you know what i’m just concerned with your belief re the jubilee. Let me explain Daniel 9 to you: the final week in the 70 weeks, which is equal to 7 years is actually the 7 yr tribulation when God will pour his wrath on earth because the antichrist has declared himself God. Billions of people will die . Afterwhich ,Jesus will reign for 1000 yrs while Satan is imprisoned (the Millenial kingdom), which will “finish transgression, put an end to sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring everlasting righteousness”. But even during Christ’s reign, many will still turn against him and follow Satan when he is released for the last time. Why? because of man’s sinful nature. That’s the whole story. Go vote for Bro. Eddie, but I just want you to open your eyes on the real meaning of the prophecy. If that prophecy is really about the Philippines, then it shall come to pass no matter who becomes elected president this 2010. Because the Bible is reliable and 100% accurate. So, what happens if the yr of jubilee doesn’t happen? is the bible wrong ? i dont think so. Think!

MeAnn Manzano

MeAnn Manzano The kingdom of God is a jubilee.(Lev.25) The year of jubilee will come.God will do miracles anwonders.In Isaiah 61,it was preached as the acceptable year.It is called in the old writings the year of jubilee.Jubllee year repeats now and again.Revival will strike the land.There will be a jubilee time for the Phils!Christians will blow the shofar!Renewal of the land-it should be released to become a vision,so we claim Daniel 9:24.An ideal so great that each generation would see a complete renewal and be given a clear start.Every lifetime is to see arestoration and new beginning.Jesus used the words of jubilee and declared that his purpose was to bring about the jubilee year!Jubilee is what the life and ministry .of Jesus was about.Life can be made new and can be redeemed.God will speed the year of jubilee.Freedom can be reign.freedom fom all vices in the government in the marketplace..Prisoners will be set free..set free from any kinds of bondages!in the body of Christ,there was a call for the Two-year NATIONAL FAST for the deliverance of the nation in accordance to Daniel 9:24..THE YEAR OF JUBILEE WILL COME..for those who believe..Let those who has heart for this-pray,fast and sieze it!

MeAnn Manzano

MeAnn Manzano @ Faith u dont need to be concerned with our faith that the YEAR of JUBILEE will come..It doesnt matter at all whether it will come or not..and what is that to you?..The just will live by faith..And we are fixing our eyes unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith concerning Jubilee..if it will not come and supose God closed the window of heaven and did not listen to those who believe on the Jubilee year of the Phils-then let it be that way..whether God will do it or not…we will continue to hope and pray and fast for the Jubilee year of the Phils!

Sana lang naman matuto na tayong mga Pilipino at ‘wag padadala sa simbuyo ng damdamin at sa gulong ng pisong galing sa mga tiwaling kandidato. I’m inclined to believe, among many others, that what has become of our beloved nation was a result of our own choosing.

Ay hanuvanamanyan? palagi nalang ganyan… paikot-ikot nalang tayo na parang hilong talilong o kaya’y turompong kangkarot. Tama na ang turuan, ang gamitan, ang magpa-cute during election. Maawa naman tayo sa kapwa nating pilipinong hanggang ngayo’y lugmok sa kawalan at tigib sa dusa.

Saan ka mang lupalop ng mundo naroroon, nagtatalop ka man ng mangga o hindi, kumakain ka man ng galunggong o hindi, nasa Pilipinas ka man o abroad … tungkulin mo sa Dios at sa bayan ang bumoto at ipanalangin ang kanyang hinirang sa lupang hinirang.

I may carry a foreign name but Filipino blood runs through my vain. And inspite of what has become of our beloved nation, I will not be ashamed of my own race. Sa madaling usapan: let’s love our country and love one another; this is how we can show our love for God.

‘wag na tayong magpatumpik tumpik pa na parang tooth pick na yari sa palito. Basta ako alam ko na kung sino’ng dapat … Dick Gordon, and I say this with unbiased opinion. Bow smile emoticon

Jose A. Acelajado

Jose A. Acelajado Gordon-Fernando, yes, yes, yes, no more no less!

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie It is not feeling that drives us to take Bro. Eddie as the needed President of the Philippines knowing that DIYOS AT BAYAN should be on the table and is of paramount for the realization of True transformation for our society. Now is the time, for tomorrow may be too late, for all filipinos to have a renewed heart with the mandate of the Word of God. It is true that what the prophet did say will come to pass and it shall truly come to pass but we need to prepare ourselves today fully cloth with the Word of God so that at the time of its fulfilment we will not be caught naked.

First and foremost our President should always have the leading of the Word of God in fulfilling his/her public duty. The chaos that beset our society under the present administration is a repiica of the peoples misguided mind attributred by human lies resulting from human wisdom.

Jose A. Acelajado

Jose A. Acelajado To sum it up, hindi dapat gamitin ang religion para matupad ang personal na ambisyon, kung tunay ang kanyang paniniwala kay Lord, Hindi na niya kailangan mangampanya, hindi na rin niya kailangan kumandidato, ipapa-ubaya na lang niya kay Lord kung sino man hirangin ni Lord! Dapat pasalamatan natin sina Cardinal Sin, hindi siya kumandidato pero nakatulong siya sa bayan, si Ka Erdi Manalo, at ang iba pang mga Church leaders, ano kaya ang mangyayari sa ating bansa kung ang lahat ng mga church leaders ay binigyan natin ng option na kumandidato, maari itong mangyari kung si Bro. Eddie ay ating susuportahan, para tayong nagtatanim ng hangin, bagyo ang ating aanihin! Gumising na kayo, mga maka-Bro. Eddie, ibinababa ninyo ang level ng isang paniniwala o spiritual faith sa level ng material interest at hallucination for grandeur!

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie It is only when the head of the state has the fear of God that he will also lead his people to do the same. A father of the family who speaks with the wisdom of God and thus have deeds worthly satisfaying would likewise worthy to be imitated by his children. If our society has indeed the fear of God in words and in deeds our country will be like a vine in our vineyard planted by the water, it will be fruitful and full of branches because of abundant water. It’s branches will be strong and continue to be so with the mighty of the Lord. If the fear of the Lord is not within the context of the President’s paternal authority then our society will continue to be planted in the desert, in a dry and thirsty land.

Jose A. Acelajado

Jose A. Acelajado Yes na yes, dapat ang leader ay maka-Diyos at Maka-tao, tama ka diyan, but how can we ascertain the true intentions of our candidates? What will you say if the Head of the CBCP run for the Presidency? Will it be good for our country, I believe, he has more spiritual followers than Bro. Eddie? Sabihin mo kaya na mas magaling si Bro. Eddie kaysa sa President ng CBCP? Hindi maganda ang argument na dahil siya ay naging mahusay na pastol sa isang pananampalataya ay siya na ang karapatdapat maging pangulo ng Pilipinas. Sa pagsuporta na ginagawa ninyo kay Bro. Eddie, ay para kayong nagtatanim ng hangin, bagyo ang ating aanihin! Dati mga artista ang ating nagiging leaders, ngayon naman mga religious leaders ang gusto ninyo na ating subukan! Hindi kaya ito naiisip ni Bro. Eddie na hindi maganda ang huwarang ipinapakita niya sa ating mga mamamayan bilang isang leader ng isang malaking religious congregation ay naroon na ginagamit niya sa kanyang personal na ambisyon? This is plain hallucination for grandeur!

William Wallace

William Wallace pinakitaan lang kayo ng galing ni gordon naniwala naman kayo…sa tingin mo ba sa mga nagawa niya hindi siya kumeta ng milyones?kung hindi yan nangurakot walang pera yan ngayon at hindi tatakbo yan ng pangulo….magkano lang sahod ng senador?hindi na ninyo kailangan gisingin ang ibang tao kasi matagal ng gising sa katoohanan….cguro kayo kailangan ninyong mamulat sa katotohanan…o di kaya dalhin ninyo tong masamang balita sa bundok yung hindi abot ng diyaryo…kung gusto ninyong makatulong…pra malaman ng iba nating kababayan hwag dito sa profile ni noynoy….

Din Laviste

Din Laviste Tama ka Jose. We wouldn’t be able to prove sino ang hindi kurakot,and kung lahat ba talaga sila ay righteous. So why not look at what they have done para sa Pilipinas? Sino ang nakatulong at naipasulong ang Pilipinas habang nasa pusisyon? Who of them was able to make a difference in a lot of people’s lives? It would take a lot more than personal interest to want to see your kababayans be well and live a good life. That would be one good way of spotting who has true dedication.

William Wallace

William Wallace Gordon urges Filipinos to eat less rice??????…..80% nating kababayan nasa poverty line(Mahihirap) ne wala ngang pambili ng bigas at hindi nga makakain ng tatlong beses sa isang araw tapos gusto pa ni gordon na magdiet….kalokohan….hirap ang mga kababayan natin na makabili ng murang bigas(NFA rice) at sardinas man lang…. masdan ninyo ang pinas mula aparri hanggang sulo…kung hindi pa ninyo nalibot ang minadanao hwag hwag na lang kayong magkumento…ang hirap kasi sa bihasang drayber kuno sabi nila ay kaskasiro kaya kalimitan ang bagsak sa sa putik o di kaya minsan sa posti kaya ang mga nakasakay patay…driver lang ang ligtas….

Richie Anderson

Richie Anderson Kabayan, maging mahinahon sana tayo sa lahat ng bagay. Ang bawat mamamayan ay mayroong karapatang ipahayag ang sarili niyang damdamin ukol sa darating na halalan. Huwag sana nating pairalin ang init ng ulo. Tignan natin ang mga bagay sa kabuuan ng pangyayari at kung ano ang nararapat para sa bayan natin. Igalang natin ang pahayag ng bawat isa. This is democracy. Let’s please be civil with our comments. Salamat po.

Din Laviste

Din Laviste Sino po bobotohin nyo? si Noynoy? papaano kayo nakasisiguro siya rin ay hindi kurakot, kung ganon nga ang tingin ninyo kay gordon? Kung lahat man ng kandidato ay kurakot, sabihin natin, sino ang may mas malaki ang nagawa para sa bansa vs. mangurakot? tingnan ang link na ito at may isang debate tungkol sa isyung korupsiyon:

MeAnn Manzano
MeAnn Manzano If the head of the CBCP will run for president in this country and if I think that he has that passionate love for God and country at di sya kurakot,if he is really sincere and has moral ascendancy and genuine fear of the Lord at grounded sya sa salita ng Diyos,if his life is transparent and set as good exampe in his personal and public life,if he is really capable of leading this country.then why not?
The constitution is clear that all Filipinos can run as president regardless of political or religious affliation.As long as he passes the credentials na kailangan nila. kailangan ba ng sobrang talino or sikat sa bansang ito.Tested na sila.mas lumaki ang utang ng bansa sa kanila.Si Cory nga,plain housewife,napatakbo ang bansa,nagkataon lang na asawa ni Ninoy.I dont trust Noynoy,buti pa siguro si Villar o Gordon.but I have my standard of choosing my president which is based on my faith in the bible..And Bro.eddie will not run just for political or personal ambition.Kapag kasi ikaw ay nakakilala sa Tunay na Diyos ng bibliya,if u choose Jesus as ur lord and personal savior-automatic u became loving and concern for ur country.Coz the bible will teach u to love more and pray forthe country which HE had given u..The holy spirit will convict u..

Inri Manzie
Inri Manzie @aaron ang dapat magdiet e c Gordon.
@Jose and Din. Running for presidency is a matter of conviction within a person and as long as you satisfy the requirements of our law. You two guys are also qualified but you have no conviction, did you?

Din Laviste

Din Laviste No, conviction is not enough. Its his track record and diverse experience that we are pointing out that makes him the best man for the job. Its not enough to just be able to inspire people, but also have proof of one’s capabilities and dedication that will help transform the country for the next 6 years. And again, we see that in Gordon.

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie When your candidate earned his track record as you brag on was he do it with clean hands and conscience. In fairness to your candidate, yes your candidate is very good in English but that is not enough knowingt that he lacked the ability to lead people. Besides, how can your candidate prevent corruption in his administration if he is aligned to the TRAPOS? Track record has nothing to do with the cleaning up of corrupt persons in our government.

William Wallace

William Wallace kabayan,hindi kailangan ang karanasan sa larangan ng pamumuno at napatunayan na yan sa mga nagdaang panahon lahat bihasa sa pulitika maliban lang sa ina ng demokrasya(cory)simula pa kay diosdado macapagal nagkalitse litse na ang buhay nating pilipino dahil sa kurapsyon hanggang sa kanyang anak(gloria). sa panahon ni cory may nadinig ba kayong anumalya sa panununo niya?siya ay isang ina na hangad ay mabigyan ng magandang kinabukasan ang kanyang mga anak…walang karanasan sa pulitika pero nagawa niyang labanan ang dektador na si marcos para lang makamit natin demokrasya na hanggang ngayon tayo ang nakikinabang….nagkakaroon tayo ng kalayaan na maihayag ang ating saloobin na alam natin ay tama pero sa mata ng pangkalahatan ay mali…..ginamit natin ang demokrasya para alipustahin ang kakayahan ng kanyang anak(noynoy) na walang ibang hangad kundi ang magsilbi sa bayan ng tapat..sino sa tumakbong pangulo ngayon ang deretsong nangako sa madlang people na hindi magnanakaw at labanan ang katiwalian???? si noynoy di ba??hindi lahat ng sagot ay makikita sa libro..maging bukas sana ang ating isipan para sa karagdagang kaalaman….

William Wallace

William Wallace totoo sa pamummuno ni cory marami ang nagugutom sa pagkat nagsimula tayo sa wala ni limas ni marcos ang kaban ng bayan pero unti-unti tayong nakakabangon sa kahirapan…nung humalili si malaking tainga(ramos)at dumaan tayo sa asian crisis walang ginawa si tainga kundi ang magbenta ng pagmamay-ari ng governo at hindi sa kanya…binibenta niya sa mga mayayaman at dayuhan na hanggang ngayon tayo ang umuupa sa ating pagmamay-ari….ginisa tayo sa sarili nating mantika….hanggang sa naabutan ni erap ang asian crisis..sa sobra ng dalawang taon niyang pamumuno nabigyan niya ng pansamantalang hanap buhay ang iilan nating kababayan sa pamamagitan ng sugal…jai alai,last three, last two,sweepstake,lotto at iba pang illegal na gawain hanggang napatalsik sa pwesto..at nang pumasok si kwatog(gloria) sa pangulo lalo lang nagkalitse ang buhay natin…na tayo mismo ang saksing buhay sa kaganapan….

Jose A. Acelajado

Jose A. Acelajado Mary Ann, I don’t think the head of the CBCP will put his institution at stake by pursuing a political career as he respects the institution and its members!

MeAnn Manzano

MeAnn Manzano Politics is not bad..its only the politician that makes it bad.A politician must be a person judging wisely and prudent.but they tend to deteriorate the essence of politics which is a science or art of government, of political views.They are still under the law of Rome,most probabaly bawal sa kanila not becoz the institution wil be stained.. People has to be free from the bondage of apathy and indifference..

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie To be involved in politics while identified as a clergy or pastor or laity will not put the institution at stake considering that a barrier exists, thus the separation of the church and the state under our constitution. The doctrine of the church cannot be brought to the affair of the state and vice versa. But this does not mean that a religious leader is prohibited to participate in politics when it comes to deliver to the people a decent meaning of life. Since our professional politicians principally the TRAPOS are so much involved on popularising themselves via track record with the indulgence of corruption negating good services to the people and to the detriment of our economy, do they still have the moral right to say that they are capable to lead the country into something good? A corrupt leader can not bring good things. The Bible is true: What you sow is what you reap.

If our candidates are identified to the malpractices in the government can we resist the conviction of a man of God to run for president to fix such malpractices? Bro. Eddie is the right man for the job knowing for his conviction that he was not and is not involved in any malpractices detrimental to the people. HE IS A TRUE LEADER AND A LEADER MAKER. From his 15 students he trained then, and now thousands of leaders with millions of members whose life were changed from the verge of ruined into a new and transformed life. That is why Jesus Is Lord Church was formed. [For me this is track record for Bro. Eddie] It is God who make and designed for it. Bro. Eddie is just a vessel in the existence of JIL church. This is what we need in the government – to cure the ailing heart and mind of those in the government through surgery operations for the true transformation of our ailing society attributed but our irresponsible leaders. It is only then that our country will lead into a right track.

WE NEED THE WORD OF GOD FOR THE TRUE TRANSFORMATION OF OUR SOCIETY, SPECIFICALLY IN GOVERNANCE. What we need to lead our country is one with LEADERSHIP SKILLS proven both in words and in deeds.

Jose A. Acelajado

Jose A. Acelajado We are all created equal, we are all sinners, and Bro. Eddie is just one of us, he may be wrong, and he may be right, politics is not just qualifications but more so, it is about personal relations, this is reality, this is why maybe 90% of his supporters are members of the JIL, and whether he likes it or not, he is putting the JIL at stake in this activity, as I have seen on TV, He is being endorsed by your leaders to your members! So this creates the impression that this is an endorsement from the Lord, to many of your loyal followers! Please, please be more objective to your tribe!

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie I don’t think he does.JIL church does not belong to Bro. Eddie. It belongs to God. Bro. Eddie is just a vessel for the existence of JIL. Besides, he has already relinquished his duty as overseer of JIL the moment he run for the presidency.. The endorsement for Bro. Eddie are within the consensus of peoples, not only the JIL leaders, who are thirsty for the drastic change from the error of our government. As believers, by relying to the Word of God, and through prayer that we make our decisions. What you have said is self-explanatory. You are bringing the word “objective” to the fallacy of your argument to make your reason right.

Immanuel del Castillo

Immanuel del Castillo i saw this one being advertised on an anti-erap fan page. pretty good stuff you got here, what makes it even better tho is the fact that it is translated in the vernacular. haha, anyway, if you allow me to correct you, Noynoy Aquino best represent the Class A driver. He is inexperience in almost all aspects, even in life.

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie How can we expect a man to lead a country where there’s lot of question to his personality. One thing is that he has no family at his age. Before you can be trusted to a bigger thing you need to show first how you run the smaller thing. In the Senate he just sit down with no law being made. Now he shouts BATMAN to lead a big family. And please excuse me, what is Class A driver?

Immanuel del Castillo

Immanuel del Castillo Henry, read the note again. i was pertaining to the type A driver. im sorry if you were mistaken.

read this. You’ll truly apreciate the success of a person from zero to feat. Villar dares himself to become an achiever, indeed it was POSSIBLE.

As what most of his advertisement says, SYA ang GUMAWA ng KANYANG SARILING PANGALAN.

If Villar will win this race, the Filipinos perfectly made a very good decision.

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie He makes his name then he torn it down even greater than he make it. To choose him is like jumping from the flying airplane without a parachute.

Jose A. Acelajado Gordon-Fernando for a better Philippines!

John Rebitoy

John Rebitoy @all, simpleng tanong lang po..

ano ba nagawa ng mga kandidato nyo?

John Rebitoy
Immanuel del Castillo

Immanuel del Castillo haha, may mga manhid. please, wag niyo iboto si manny villar saka si noynoy. i’ve heard off his evils. one of them is his tree planting project, yes, he plants trees, but tears down a lot more in the process. he denude the our forest for his “housing projects” a.k.a. subdivisions. aint that evil? plus, he aint poor when he was younger, he is lying. i have a lot more but i am too lazy to post it here. with regards to noynoy, you know he aint gonna do nothing, what were you thinking?

Engr Eijoj Otipep

Engr Eijoj Otipep We must become the change we want to see. Vote for Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro!

John Sue Feliciano Ortiz
Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie Electing a president is choosing a leader for the country. It is all about leadership skills of one who will lead us. The candidates have their respective but good academic background at their own field, accomplishments within their specialty, family background at their own sphere of influence, etc. But one thing that, I think, we should seriously put on the table is their LEADERSHIP SKILL. May be our candidate is a bright economist like Aling Gloria but lacked the skill of leadership kaya nagka wendang wendang ang Pilipinas; maybe our man became rich because of his obsession to escape from the ruin of poverty thus make his name known and only to find it torn down again because of corruption and now conspired with Gloria’s lousy administration; that our man became senator because he was good on rhetoric that he even brag as to his track record; that our man has questionable personality, an heir of his parents popularity but DO NOTHING while in the Senate; our man could be a one-time president who rose from his vices and by his bigotry leading to his downfall; or a military man so that our country will become under military rule again. Adhering to any of this, PLEASE FORGIVE ME, I MUST SAY WE ARE INDEED NAIVE IF NOT IDOT. Remember our country need a LEADER!

John Rebitoy

John Rebitoy Gloria is good, you can see the rise of GDP and GNP from her presidency. But, she also was a puppet by many congressman because she is afraid that she will be impeached in her position. ahihii.

Immanuel del Castillo

Immanuel del Castillo JOHN! are you kidding? you might wanna take that last statement of yours back, because Gloria just made a PAG-IBIG Board Member out of her freaking Manicurist for chrissake!!!!

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz Ang dami namang madudunong sa thread na ito pero karamihan baluktot naman ang prinsipyo. Yung iba pinagpipilitan na isama ang kagustuhan ng DIYOS. Gising! Hindi lahat ng Pilipino ay katulad ng pananampalataya mo. Mga nabubulagan! Kaya nga ihiniwalay ang estado sa simbahan. Hanggang ngayon taglay nyo pa rin ang baluktot na kaisipan na itinanim ng mga kastila, na ang mga naglilingkod sa panginoon ay sila lamang ay karapatdapat maging lider.

Meron namang nangangarap ng gising. Hindi raw kailangan ang karanasan sa pamumuno, haha isa pa itong natutulog sa pansitan! Ikaw ba ay nag tratrabaho? Nakakita ka na ba nga PRESIDENTE o GENERAL MANAGER ng kumpanya na JANITOR lang kahapon? Gusto mo pa bang elaborate ko pa ang ibig kung sabihin ng maintindihan mo? Paumanhin sa mga JANITOR, alam kong tunay na marangal ang inyong trabaho, nais ko lang na ilahad ang katotohanan.
Simulan natin sa pinakamaliit na sektor ng pamayanan, ang PAMILYA. Kung ikaw ay isang MAGULANG, ikaw ba ay tinitingalang lider ng iyong anak? Bakit? Kung hindi ikaw ang tinitingalang lider ng iyong anak sa iyong palmilya, bakit? Gets mo? Ha ha ha

Ang may akda ay inilalahad lamang ang kanyang pag unawa ng ayon sa kanyang pag susuri. Kung hindi ka naniniwala sa mga isinulat ng may akda, marapat lamang na ilahad mo rin ang iyong pamantayan sa lohikal at makatotohanang batayan. Kung ang iyong mga reaksyon ay batay lang sa iyong mga sapantaha at kuwento ng iba sana huwag ka ng mag dunung-dunungan dahil nahahalata lamang na ikaw ay isang mangmang. Taandaan, hindi nakakahiyang sabihin ang “hindi ko pa alam”.

Ewan ko sa inyo… puro kayo reklamo at gusto nyo ng pag babago pero ang paraan ng pag pili nyo ng kandidato hindi naman nagbabago. Hahahaha… Hindi ba noong huli kang bumoto yan din ang pamantayan mo?

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Arron, Kaibigan Ko, Gordon’s urging of kababayans to eat less rice serves the purpose of promoting health and stimulating the economy. Sa bagay, Gordon’s plan is not an outright reduction in rice consumption, ngunit the addition of mongo, camote, and cassava, which would be less expensive. This addition to the diet would compensate for the excessive rice consumption, which, if left unchecked, could lead to lifestyle diseases (halimbawa, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes). Economically speaking, a reduction of local rice consumption would create a surplus of rice supply, which could be exported in exchange for more dollars. In conclusion, less rice consumption translates into a cheaper diet, better health, lower healthcare costs, more exports, and more dollars for the Philippine economy. What’s wrong with that, Kaibigan Ko?

Inri Manzie

Inri Manzie @kulit everyone has its own bias and they have the right to express it like you but to say the word “baluktot ang kaisipan” is somewhat that you are making yourself na ikaw ay napakakrunong. You’re thinking that you are superior than others. If people chose the principle of God or the principle of man to reign our country then so be it because that’s their confirmation bias. If you are against it then refute it with your personal validation that others can learn from you.

Marcial Bonifacio
Marcial Bonifacio Madame Faith, Kaibigan Ko, salamat po for your kind words about my writing, and I admire your perseverance in addressing the Bro. Eddie supporters with your philosophical points and Biblical understanding, kahit we may disagree. I’m more interested in using facts rather than insults in order to make my points, dahil they earn more merit and credibility among the voters. However, sometimes the directness of my points or probing questions may seem offensive, so please forgive me if this is the case. Gordon has been in politics for a long time and has established a good reputation in what he has accomplished, which remains unmatched by any other candidate. You can read about them in my first blog which includes a debate between a Noynoy supporter and I on the issue of corruption sa: http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=194910412554&id=660391561&ref=mf
Also, since Gordon is Blue Ribbon Committee chairman, meroon higher moral standard which he must live up to, so it seems highly unlikely that he would risk his political career by falsely accusing Villar of buying him off. Naiintindihan ko that you are close to the family, so you do not feel that he could commit such a terrible thing, ngunit just as parents were unsuspecting of their priests who sexually molested their children (as reported sa news), is it not possible that the closest of friends and relatives be oblivious to each others’ negative intentions and actions. Such betrayal and deception occurs frequently between husbands and wives, employees and employers, businesses and customers. One need only read the newspapers. Sa bagay, Gordon has assured that, at the appropriate time, he will disclose the identity of this former Cabinet member sa harapan ng si Villar and is willing to use a lie detector test. By the way, Kaibigan Ko, can you or any other Villar supporter explain why Villar refuses to attend Senate hearings, kahit appeals from his colleagues?

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Sir Jojie, tama ka po. That is precisely why Gordon is the presidentiable most qualified to lead, dahil he has acquired merit through his successful accomplishments. They are not unfulfilled promises or dreams. They were realized goals concretized in places like Subic and Olongapo. Simply ask the 200,000 people who were employed and the 200 employers whom Gordon convinced to invest sa RP during his earlier public service. What has Gibo done comparable to this for him to deserve our trust and vote?

William Wallace

William Wallace @marcial,hindi naman cguro pwede ipares ang camote at daing,casava at sardinas…patibayan na lang ngsikumra ganun…iilan lang po tayong nakakain ng apat na beses sa isang araw… ang mga sakit na binanggit mo di ba nakukuha yan sa improper diet??paano ang malnutrisyon?wala nang pambili ng gamot???at madalang nalang po tayong nageexport ng bigas ngayon sa katunayan tayo pa nga ang nagiimport ng bigas mula sa thailand at vietman…naalala mo ba yung fertilizer fund???kung ang perang iyon binigay sa magsasaka eh di sana malakas ang ating agrikultura….sabihin nyo po sa kay gordon na bigyang pansin ang nakakarami hindi yung iilan lang….

@nathan,pero nakaranas na ho kayo ng isang ina(bahagi ng pamilya-ang pinakababang sector ng lipunan sabi nyo po di ba? ).. na naging presidente di po ba? anyway, ang salitang leader po ay something that leads…malinaw na meron o walang karanasan pwede po maging leader ano po? nasa atin na po yun kung ang gusto maging leader natin may karanasan o wala…hwag po sana tayong magbigay halimbawa na malayo sa paksa…

Constructive criticism is fine po providing we are prepared to do something about what we are being critical about—rather than just being negative and becoming a part of the problem, hindi po ba???maging mahinahon po tayo walang pong nagmamagaling dito… sinasabi ko lang ayun sa aking karanasan at kayo mismo ay saksing buhay sa kasaysayan ng pilipinas…sana po maging bukas ang ating isipan para sa karagdagang kaalaman.

Lahat pong tumakbo ng pagkapangulo ngayon ay karapatdapat po na maging leader ayun sa commelec base sa saligang batas,hindi po ba? lahat na naging pangulo ng ating bansa magaling may abilidad pero saan tayo ngayon? dyan kaparin at dito parin ako…hehehehe..hindi kaya dahil sa kurapsyon???simulan natin kay diosdado macapagal(poor boy of lubao) kinasuhan ng kurapsyon ni marcos…cguro naabutan nyo pa si marcos…si FVR….si Erap…si Gloria..lahat yan magaling sa larangan ng pulitika….alam nyo naman cguro di ba???o kayo ang nagbulagbulagan… kaya po ngayon may basihan….pipili po ako ng taong hindi kurap at deretso nangangako sa taong bayan na hindi magnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan…yung ibang tumakbo ba ng pagkapangulo nangako?

Leandro Altamirano

Leandro Altamirano Go for Gordon. I may be only 15 but I know Gordon can improve the Philippines like he has done with Subic

William Wallace

William Wallace @nathan,Si gordon ay tuta ni gloria, hindi po ba?bakit gusto ni gordon ang SBMA?kayo na po ang maghusga…alam nating lahat na si gordon ay chairman ng SBMA sa paulit ulit na pagkakataon…sa tulong po ng U.S. base militar kaya po napaunlad ang olongapo…napaniwala po ni gordon ang taga-olongapo sa kanyang kakayahan dahil po sa pamamagitan ng paghothot sa mga sundalong kano na gustong mamumuhan sa bansa….noong gustong paalisin ang U.S. base sa bansa bakit hindi mapakali si gordon parang asong ulol na panay rally dito at doon…kasi alam natin na ang pinagkukunan ng pera ni gordon ay ang mga kano…noong nahalal si estrada bilang pangulo ng bansa at tuluyang napaalis ang U.S. base sa bansa at pinatalsik si gordon bilang chairman ng SBMA at pinalitan ni payumo….bakit po ayaw ni gordon na bumaba sa pwesto??nagkakaroon po ng mainit na pagtatalo sa pagitan ni gordon at payumo…

2001 edsa revolution nganununa po si gordon sa intablado para patalsikin si erap at ehalili si gloria..at ng magtagumpay ang mga kurakot sa kapwa nila kurakot…tinalaga si gordon bilang secretary of tourism bilang gantimpala hindi po ba???bakit kaya hindi sa agrikultura na ngayon isinusulong niya ang paglagay ng kunting bigas sa hapagkainan o di kaya sa DTI…kasi alam niya na sa panahong iyon mahina ang exportation o kalakal sa ating bansa…at mapasakamay niya ulit ang SMBA,hindi po ba????

2004 presidential election tumakbo po si gordon bilang senador sa ilalim po ng partido ni gloria na alam natin na isa sa tiwaling pangulo….paano nyo ngayon sasabihin sa taong bayan na malinis kayo at hindi trapo????ngayon po sino po sa atin ang natutulog sa pansitan…

Donae Faye

Donae Faye @Arron: Tiga saan ka po ba at sinasabi mo na naipaunlad ni Gordon and SBMA sa pamamagitan ng paghuthot nya sa kano nuong andito pa ang mga US military?. Si Gordon ay naging mayor ng Olongapo habang ang mga kano ay nsa Subic ngunit ang ekonomiya ng dalawang ito ay magkahiwalay. Hindi iisa ang olongapo at ang subic naval base (SBMA sa ngayon). ang mga tao ng olongapo ay nagttrabaho para sa loob ng naval base, pero ano ang ginawa ng mga politiko? pinaalis nila ang mga kano sa subic at nag iwan ng mga taong walang trabaho sa olongapo city. sino po ang nakawawa? hindi ba ang mga taga olongapo? ang mismong olongapo! ang buhay ng mga taga olongapo ay ang naval base ngunit ito ay inalis, kasama pa ng pagsabog ng bulkang pinatubo kung saan ang olongapo ay lumubog sa lupa at abo. Naaalala ko pa nung ako’y papasok sa eskwelahan, traffic sa daan dahil sa mga buhangin na ibinuga ng pinatubo, nakasay ako sa tricycle nakasuot ang aking mask (panlaban sa alikabok) kitang kita ko si Gordon na cya mismo ang nag aayos ng daan, nagttraffic, nghuhukay ng buhangin. Kung sa totoo lng eh pwede nmn nya ipagawa sa ibang tao. Mabalik naman nten sa SBMA kung saan wala na ang mga kano. si Gordon ang naiupo bilang chairman ng SBMA pagkaalis ng mga kano. walang trabaho sa olongapo, Hinikayat ni Gordon ang mga tao na mag volunteer (gumawa ng walang bayad) para maiahon, ibangon ang olongapo sa pangako na aangat ito. at hindi nmn nagtagal nagtagumpay ang SBMA. Kita po nmn nyo siguro kung ano meron ang SBMA ngyn. Ang pagkakaalis ni Gordon sa position ng SMBA chairman nuong panahon ni ERAP ay kinagalit ng tao dahil si ERAP ay nagtalaga ng panibagong chairman na galing sa bayan ng BATAAN hindi olongapo nang hindi pa nattapos ni Gordon ang kanyang termino. Ang sabi pa nga ni Gordon, tatapusin muna ang termino bago umalis, ngunit ipinilit ito ni ERAP at ni PAYUMO ang dapat na uupo. at gumawa ng karahasan sa olongapo city at sa loob ng SBMA. Bakit kailangan ng dahas? para lng sa pag kakaupo ng isang chairman?? Sa palagay ninyo bakit ito minadali ni ERAP? dahil alam nyang may potensyal ang SBMA. Nang panahon na iyan ako ay isa nga kolehiyo, nag aaral sa Mapua sa loob ng intramuros, ang intramuros nuong bago pa ako pumasok sa Mapua, ay isang tahimik na lugar. uuwi at papasok lng ang gagawin mo. Ngunit nang mag karoon ng WOW Philippines nabuhay ang intramuros ang mga vendor ay naka unipormeng pang bayanihan, gumanda ang intramuros. nabuhay nag karoon ng income? bakit? dahil sa political will ng isang tao.

Bakit ko nasasabi ang lahat ng ito? Dahil ako ay tiga-Olongapo. at alam ko kung pano naging disiplinado at maunlad ang aming munting syudad. Ako ay nag aral sa eskuwalahan sa loob ng intramuros at naramdaman ko kung pano ito gumanda at sumigla.

Ikaw po Ginoong Arron, Naramdaman nyo na po ba ang inyong kandidato

Donae Faye

Donae Faye at isa pa, bakit tayo nag sisiraan ng mga kanyang kanyang kandidato? kung mananalo ba ang kanditatong gusto ko eh, hindi nyo na igagalang? or susundin?

batay sa salaysay ni faye”’kasama pa ng pagsabog ng bulkang pinatubo kung saan ang olongapo ay lumubog sa lupa at abo. Naaalala ko pa nung ako’y papasok sa eskwelahan, traffic sa daan dahil sa mga buhangin na ibinuga ng pinatubo, nakasay ako sa tricycle nakasuot ang aking mask (panlaban sa alikabok) kitang kita ko si Gordon na cya mismo ang nag aayos ng daan, nagttraffic, nghuhukay ng buhangin. Kung sa totoo lng eh pwede nmn nya ipagawa sa ibang tao”hahaha…great pretender…1991 po pumutok ang pinatubo 1992 mageelection ulit…bilang isang pulitiko ano ang gagawin mo???hoy gising!!!!matutulog na lang ba tayo sa pansitan katulad ni nathan kulit…

1992 po nahalal ulit si gordon bilang mayor ng olongapo”na naman!!!”(dahil po sa kanyang pagaayos ng daan, nagttraffic, nghuhukay ng buhangin sa panahon ni pinatubo.)hehhheehe at napili bilang chairman ng SBMA na ayun sa batas ay bawal(dual duty)kaya napilitan niyang iwanan ang kangyang pagkamayor…ha???bakit hindi na lang pagkachairman…kasi wala ng pera ang olongapo…mahina na ang tax kasi marami ang nawalang ng hanap buhay…

And how do you know that GORDON is using the funds of red cross? eh wala nga cyang TV ad eh! kung meron once a month pa. DUH?!

Sandy Joel

Sandy Joel · Friends with Celine Almedraz

Ah, ngaun lang ako nakakita ng DICKHEAD na di marunong mag CPR. Head pa naman ng REDCROSS. Search nyo sa youtube ung pag challenge ni Paolo Bediones kay DICKHEAD. Di nya na revive ung c-ni-cpr nya. Hiningal pa ang lolo dickhead mo sa pag c-cpr. kahiya. -:)
Donae Faye

Donae Faye aw! what an AIRHEAD! im asking you how he uses the funds, so yun ang basehan mo?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJmBVCfSp_4&feature=related

you are not voting for noynoy, nor for villiar and ofcourse not for GORDON,

i think you’re voting for ERAP, AIRHEADS votes for ERAP.

Arnold Sorso Magdaet

Arnold Sorso Magdaet sayang di ako maka boto this election…i really want to vote for gordon…but in my own effort, i will campaign for him…Go Gordon & Bayani! Philippines…TRANSFORM!

Din Laviste

Din Laviste @ Sir Arron: I respect that you have your own opinion of Gordon and the success of Subic and Olongapo. Ayon sa’yo,sa sagot mo kay Ms. Faye, ang paghuhukay nya ng buhangin sa Olongapo ay isang “pagpapalapad lamang ng papel” dahil paparating na ang elections noong panahong iyon. Paano ka nakasisiguro ito nga ang intensiyon nya? Gusto ko ring ikwestiyon, ano kaya ang intensiyon ni Noynoy noong sinabi nya sa harap ng taong bayan na hindi sya magnanakaw? Hindi natin masasagot ‘yan kaya tumingin tayo sa kung ano ang nakikita ng mata ng tao. Kesyo intensyon nyang magpabilib sa taong bayan upang botohin sya, nakakatulong pa rin sya sa taong bayan sa paglilinis ng bayan, hindi ba? Ang pagtulong nya sa paglipat ng ilang libong aeta na nasa panganib at nakatira sa Mt. Piatubo, kesyo pagpapalapad ito ng papael o hindi, nakasagip pa rin sya ng buhay ng libo libong tao,at ginagawa pa rin niya ang trabaho niya, hindi ba? Sa lahat ng kandidato, kesyo nagpapalapad ng papel o hindi, sino ang may pinakamaraming naipakitang pagtulong at dedikasyon sa bayan? Siguradong siya ang bobotohin ko.

Ayon sayo, “sa tagal2x na panahon ng panunungkulan ng pamilyang iyan bakit hindi nila naisipan na gumawa ng ibang paraan?ipagpalagay lang natin walang kano,walang SMBA…ano ang olongapo hindi mapalagay!!!bakit po kayo nagvovolunteer(gumawa ng walang bayad)?at ginawa pa kayong alipin sa sarili ninyong bayan.”I want to ask you Sir Arron, tell us then, paano mo maibabangon ang Subic at Olongapo, pagtapos ng pagputok ng Bulkang Pinatubo,nang walang tulong galing sa mga kano at mga volunteers, with exactly the same prestige and success that it has now? Please enlighten us, since mukhang mas nakakaalam kayo kung paano.

The mere fact that there are people, even students and learned people from abroad, who are willing to share Gordon’s vision without asking anything in return, proves how much of an inspiration he is to other people and how he has earned their respect. I would instead be proud to be a servant of my country or “alipin ng inang bayan”, because that just shows how much I care for my country,kahit walang bayad, basta’t alam kong ako ay nakakatulong para sa ikabubuti nito.

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Arron, Kaibigan Ko, poverty is caused by lack of economic opportunity or choice, which is exactly what Gordon’s track record has shown him to combat by creating jobs. If our kababayans are currently unable to afford rice, it would be most beneficial to them to substitute it for something more cheaper and healthful like cassava or camote. Kahit it is natural for man to be resistant to change, adaptability is one of the qualities which distinguishes man from the other animals. Sometimes change is beneficial and even necessary. Sa bagay, many OFWs had to adjust to a new cuisine shortly after their migration. Why can’t our kababayans do the same, especially dahil iyon ay more healthy for the body and economy? This is a necessary cultural change, which is precisely what Gordon meant when he said “There must not just be a change of men, but a change in men.”

On the issue of corruption, it is precisely because corruption is a prime concern that Gordon is the most qualified. Just consider that he is Blue Ribbon Committee Chairman and authored the bill to fully automate the 2010 elections in order to curtail voter fraud, and he voted for The Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act (SBN-3532). Also, Gordon was the youngest delegate to the 1971 Constitutional Convention, which makes him a living symbol of our democracy. As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Constitutional Amendments and Revision of Laws, he insisted on lawful charter change unexceptionally as prescribed by the Constitution and has rejected bills, which he believed were unconstitutional, such as Gloria Arroyo‘s declaration of martial law sa Maguindanao. Furthermore, Gordon’s apparent upholding of the rule of law and the Constitution clearly illustrates his anti-corrupt convictions. What makes Aquino more qualified than Gordon to curb corruption?

On the issue of Aquino’s “selflessness” in public service, what exactly did he do to display that quality? View this video and you will see one example among many of Gordon’s selfless service to our country: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1375664401331…
When you can present to me by logic or Aquino’s accomplishments that he is more qualified than Gordon, then I will support Aquino. Until then, I will vote for the most obviously qualified presidentiable—Gordon.

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Leandro at Arnold, Mga Kaibigan Ko, your support of Gordon does you both honor.

William Wallace

William Wallace @maam Din,maraming salamat sa pagsubaybay sa mga kumento ko..akala ko wala ka na…hehehhe….anyway andito tayo para halungkatin ang nakatagong katotohanan..

I would instead be proud to be a servant of my country or “alipin ng inang bayan”, because that just shows how much I care for my country,kahit walang bayad, basta’t alam kong ako ay nakakatulong para sa ikabubuti nito…hanga po ako sa tibay ng pananalita ninyo wala kayong pinagkaiba ni gordon pero hwag po kayong magsasalita ng patapos hindi mo pa nararamdaman ang kalupitan ng kahiraphan sa ngayon kasi may work pa ang parents mo at may kaya pa kayo sa buhay time will come gustohin mo rin mangibang bansa…the same senario po maam Din,ang taga olongapo nangibang bakod nagtrabaho sa subic…ang ibang kakabayan nangibang bansa din para kumita ang tanong po bakit kaya??cguro dahil magulo o mahirap ang lugar nila…iisalang ang ugat ang kasakiman…hindi po kasalaman na ipinanganak tayong mahirap kasalanan po kung matanda na tayo at mamatay na mahirap parin ibig sabihin po niyan ikaw ay isang tamad…

tanong mo..Paano ka nakasisiguro ito nga ang intensiyon nya?hindi ko alam,bakit hindi nyo itanong sa kanya kung labag sa kalouban ang ginawa niya…hindi naman kasi kami closed…hehehehe…pagnagnakaw si gordon wala lang,pagnagnakaw si nonoy ay malaban tayo jan isampal mo sa pagmumukha niya ang sinumpaan niya….pasumpasumpa ka pa obama….hehheheh….walang pinagkaiba ang pulitika sa karnabal pag pumasok ka magulo, maraming tao, kanya kanyang pakita ng talento,payaso,magic at galing, pero iisa lang ang layunin aliwin at pasayahin ang mga nanonod at serbisyohan kayo ng todo para paulitulit kayong papasok at maniniwala..pero po sa likod ng mga ito ay isang palabas lang at hindi tunay sa kabuuan zero balanse ubos ang pera ng bayan…pagmahina na ang kita lipat na naman..

Sept.1991 po nagkakaroon ng malalang pagsabog ng bulkang pinatubo…1963 upto 71 parents niya ang naging mayor at 1980-93 siya po ang naging mayor for 13 years po umaasa pa rin cla sa kano…ngayon po subic parin…hehehehe…..hindi po ako tutol sa pag-unlad ng subic at sa ikakaunlad pa ng bayan…sa donasyon at vulunteer…ikakasaya pa nga natin..cheers3x…may point is hwag mong angkinin ang lahat ng hindi naman sayo ang kalahati…hwag ninyong ipamukha sa lahat ng tao sa buong mundo na umunlad kayo dahil sa iisang tao lang dahil kay gordon….umunlad ang subic hindi lang dahil kay gordon yang ang dapat sabihin ninyo…tandaan po ang scooter,motor,dyip,maliit na bus o malaking bus ay hindi mapatatakbo ng sinuman pagkulang ng gulong.

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Aaron – ang haba ng mga sinabi mo pero wala akong nakitang laman. Sabi nga nila “puro kwento pero walang kwenta”. Para lang akong nag basa ng komiks na ang bawat katagang binabasa ko ay halaw sa malikot at mapaglarong isipan ng may akda. Payo ko kaibigan, mag sulat ka na lang ng nobela o maikling kwento, may mararating pa yang telento mo.

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Rizza – ano ang punto mo? Binigyan mo ng kahulugan ang bawat salita ng binitawan ko pero hindi mo nakita ang kahulugan ng buong pangungusap. Hayaan mong i-quote ko ulit ang sinabi ko tungkol sa kakayahan…

“Nakakita ka na ba nga PRESIDENTE o GENERAL MANAGER ng kumpanya na JANITOR lang kahapon?”

Maliwanag na ang nakalagay ay KAHAPON at hindi “DATI”. Ikaw ba ay mangagawa? Kung OO, ano mararamdaman mo kung ngayon ang inyong taga punas ng mesa ay bukas siya na ang BAGO mong BOSS dahil sa naniniwala ang karamihan ng kasama mo na mas marunong at magaling siya kaysa sayo? Uupo ka na lamang ba at tatangapin ng maluwag ang kapalaran mo? Hindi mo man lang ba ipaglalaban ang karapatan mo na malaman kung naging makatwiran para sa lahat ang naging desisyon? Kung ganyan nga ang gagawin mo, isa ka sa mga pilipino na mas lalong kailangan si GORDON.

Kung ano man ang relihiyon ko at pinaniniwalaan ko, wala kang karapan na sabihin sa akin na mas mabuti ang relihiyon mo. Ang lebel ng pulitika ay dapat pag usapan sa lebel ng pagiging mortal.

Pagusapan na lang natin kung anong kabutihan para sa nakararami ang nagawa ng kandidato mo, yan ay kung mayroon.

William Wallace

William Wallace @nathan, paano mo nga naman maintindihan ang lasa ng litson kung ang laman lage ng inyong utak ay pansit…ikaw ba ay nakaintindi ng salitang tagalog? o hindi alam magbasa…kung alam at naintindihan mo ang lahat ipagpaumanhin mo at hindi ko alam ang antas ng inyong pang-unawa…..ikaw ba ay nasa elementarya,high skul, koleheyo…o wala sa nabanggit..at kung hindi mo kayang intindihin at unawain ang nilalaman ng aking kwento..hhehehehe….ibig pong sabihin niyan tayo ay hindi magkalevel…

Ito ang walang kwenta mong TANONG…Ikaw ba ay mangagawa? Kung OO, ano mararamdaman mo kung ngayon ang inyong taga punas ng mesa ay bukas siya na ang BAGO mong BOSS dahil sa naniniwala ang KARAMIHAN ng kasama mo na mas marunong at magaling siya kaysa sayo?

SAGOT KO…..hindi mo ba naintindihan ang salitang election???ang ibig pong sabihin ay -to vote, to choose,to select… bilang individual may karapatan tayong pumili,bomuto kung sino ang nararapat…..halimbawa lang po kung ang JANITOR LANG KAHAPON ay siyang HINIRANG ng inyong kumpanya sa pamamagitan ng butohan o pagpili ng NAKAKARAMI bilang PRESIDENTE O MANAGER at hindi ikaw…IBIG PONG SABIHIN NIYAN AY HINDI KA KARAPAT DAPAT…AT HWAG NA HWAG MONG IHAMBING ANG SARILI MO SA IBA SAPAGKAT MAGKAIBA KAYO NG PINAGMULAN,MAGKA-IBA ANG LANDAS NA INYONG TINATAHAK…KUNG HINDI MO KAYANG TANGGAPIN ANG KAPALARAN MO AT IGALANG ANG PASYA NG NAKAKARAMI PWES KAYO PO AY NAPABILANG SA AIRHEAD O DICKHEAD NA NABANGGIT SA THREAD NA ITO…HAMBUGS BA…HEHEHEHEHE…..OO NGA NAMAN……MABUHAY PILIPINAS!!!!PEACE BE WITH US THIS COMING ELECTION….

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Aaron -” hindi mo ba naintindihan ang salitang election???ang ibig pong sabihin ay -to vote, to choose,to select… bilang individual may karapatan tayong pumili,bomuto kung sino ang nararapat…..”

mula sa salitang nabanggit mo “NARARAPAT”. pag usapan natin kung ano ang PAMANTAYAN para ang isang kandidato ay “NARARAPAT”? Maglahad ka ng PAMANTAYAN at ating suriin ang kakayahan ng bawat kandidato natin upang malaman natin kung sino ang “NARARAPAT”.

Donae Faye

Donae Faye aw, sir arron sinasabhan nyo po ba na isang dickhead/airhead si kuya nathan?

may ask po ako. hindi po ba gusto ninyo si noynoy bilanag pangulo kasi malayo cya kay gloria? ano po amsasabi nyo sa link na ito? http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3796253…

nakita ko lng po yan kagabi eh, ikaw agad ang aking naisip.

KUNG SA TINGIN NILA AY SI NOYNOY AT SA TINGIIN MO NAMAN AY SI GORDON ANG NARARAPAT DESISYON MO YAN…PERO PASYA NG KARAMIHAN ANG MANANAIG HINDI PASYA NG IILAN LAMANG….YAN ANG TUNAY NA ELEKSYON…

KUNG PAMANTAYAN NAMAN SA PAGPILI NG KANDIDATO–>ANG SINUSUNOD KO LANG ANG BATAS–HINDI NAMAN NAKASAAD SA BATAS NA HINDI PWEDENG TUMAKBO SA PAGKAPANGULO ANG WALANG KARANASAN SA PULITIKA…HINDI NAMAN BINANGGIT DIN NA HINDI PWEDENG MAGING LEADER ANG ISANG KANDIDATO NA WALANG NAGAWA SA DATI NIYANG KATUNGKULAN O WALANG ALAM….NGAYON ALAM MO NA????

William Wallace

William Wallace @FAYE,WALA AKONG SINABI…IKAW ANG DERETSAHANG NAGSABI…ANG SA AKIN LANG KUNG AT ITO ANG LAMAN—>”KUNG HINDI MO KAYANG TANGGAPIN ANG KAPALARAN MO AT IGALANG ANG PASYA NG NAKAKARAMI PWES KAYO PO AY NAPABILANG SA AIRHEAD O DICKHEAD NA NABANGGIT SA THREAD NA ITO”

@FAYE,ITO PO ANG AKING PAHAYAG-so far si NOYNOY pa lang ang nakikita kong malayo sa puso ni GLORIA….hehehehhe…..WALA AKONG NAKIKITANG NOYNOY SA ILALIM NI GLORIA AYUN SA BINIGAY MONG LINK…BAKIT HINDI MO KAYA HALUNGKATIN SA 2004 ELECTION KUNG SINO ANG NASA ILALIM SA PARTIDO NI GLORIA…

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Aaron – ang dami mong paikot ikot hahahaha. Kaibigan kung ano pamantayan mo sa pagpili ng kandidato tinatanong ko. Sa pamantayan mo, susukatin ko ang kandidato ko.

O baka naman hindi mo alam kung ano ang naging pamantayan mo sa pagpili mo sa kandidato mo? Binangit mo ang batas, alin sa mga batas ang ginamit mo bilang panukat sa kandidato mo para siya piliin mo na KARAPAT-DAPAT?

“BILANG INDIVIDUAL MAY KARAPATAN TAYONG PUMILI,BOMUTO KUNG SINO ANG NARARAPAT—ITO PO AY TUMOTUKOY SA ATING … SARILI NA MAY KARAPATAN TAYONG PUMILI KUNG SINO SA TINGIN NATIN ANG KARAPAT DAPAT” – Tama, sumasang-ayon ako dyan. Lamang na nag pahayag ka ng iyong argumento sa pinili ng iba bilang kanilang kandidato, ikaw mismo ay nanghimasok sa karapatan ng iba na PUMILI NG KANDIDATO NA SA TINGIN NILA AY KARAPAT DAPAT.

Pareho natin binabangit ang katagang “KARAPAT-DAPAT”. Ang isang pag-pili ay bunga ng isang makatwiran at walang kinikilingang pamantayan. Bakit hindi mo ilahad ang naging pamantayan mo? Magsimula tayong sukatin ang kandidato natin sa iisang pamantayan ng sa gayon malaman ko kung KARAPAT-DAPAT nga ang kandidatong napili ko smile emoticon

Kuya Kuya
Kuya Kuya @arron
you are either uninformed or confused….. your third world mentality is the very reason that our country is in shambles…

William Wallace @nathan,sabi mo—>Tama, sumasang-ayon ako dyan. Lamang na nag pahayag ka ng iyong argumento sa pinili ng iba bilang kanilang kandidato, ikaw mismo ay nanghimasok sa karapatan ng iba na PUMILI NG KANDIDATO NA SA TINGIN NILA AY KARAPAT DAPAT.

kailan man hindi kita hinikayat na baguhin at himasukan ang iyong desisyon ako ay nagdepensa lamang ayon sa nilabas ninyong akusasyon…bakit hindi mo tingnan sa una kung kumento…malinaw na ang ibig kong sabihin ay hwag mapaghusga ng sa gayon magkakaroon ng malinas na halalan ng walang sinisiraan….

Pareho natin binabangit ang katagang “KARAPAT-DAPAT”. Ang isang pag-pili ay bunga ng isang makatwiran at walang kinikilingang pamantayan.—ay hindi….ang isang pagpili ay isang karapatan ng isang individual para maihayag ang kanyang saloobin.kahit mali man o tama karapatan mo yan…
ang isang napili naman ay bunga ng karapatan ng karamihan…at dapat igalang ang pasya ng nakakarami…maging mali man o tama…yan po eleksiyon

ito ang sabi mo—>Bakit hindi mo ilahad ang naging pamantayan mo? Magsimula tayong sukatin ang kandidato natin sa iisang pamantayan ng sa gayon malaman ko kung KARAPAT-DAPAT nga ang kandidatong napili ko smile emoticon

ngayon sino sa atin sa tingin mo ang naghimasok…gusto mong alamin ang aking pamantayan sa pagpili ng kandidato…hindi po ba?ako isang pribadong tao meron akong ”right to privacy”.hehhehehehe….
ok ito ang aking basehan sa pagpili—ayaw ko sa tumakbong pagkapangulo na dating tuta ng nakaupong presidente ngayon….mahirap tanggalin sa mga pilipino ang salitang ‘utang na loob’…hindi po mahalaga sa akin ang taong bihasa sa pulitika….yun lang po….at sana po maintindihan ninyo ang ang aking desisyon…

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @aaron –

1.) ayaw ko sa tumakbong pagkapangulo na dating tuta ng nakaupong presidente ngayon….mahirap tanggalin sa mga pilipino ang salitang ‘utang na loob’…hindi po mahalaga sa akin ang taong bihasa sa pulitika….yun lang po…

– ahhh ito lang pala ang basehan mo sa pag pili. Ito ang pamantayan mo para sa pag pili ng kandidato mo. Ohh di ba si NOYNOY dati eh isa sa mga ayaw IPARINIG ang HELLO GARCI Tape? Si Nicanor Perlas, si Bro. Eddie o kaya si JC delos Reyes bakit hindi mo tinimbang?

Buti na lang pala walang tumakbo na pagkapangulo na miyembro ng Abu Sayyaf dahil kung hindi baka pagkamalian mo pang iboto dahil HINDI TUTA NI GLORIA hahaha…

– nakakahiya man aminin pero hindi ko na pag aaksayahan na sukatin ang kagalingan ni GORDON sa pamantayan mo. Sobra-sobra ang kakayahan ng presidente ko para sa pamantayan mo. Iginagalang ko ang pasya mo kaibigan, hari nawa kapag nanalo si GORDON ay makauwi ka na ng pilipinas at makapamuhay ka ng matiwasay kasama ang buo mong pamilya.

– maaring si NOYNOY ay walang tatanawing utang na loob kay GMA subalit huwag nating balewalain ang mga taong nakapaligid sa kanya. Suriin mo kaibigan kung mayroon na ng napaulat na nagawa si NOYNOY na nagpapakita ng kanyang matibay na paninindigan at hindi nag papadala sa dikta ng mga nakapaligid sa kanya.

– noong si NOYNOY ay kumandidato bilang SENADOR. IBINOTO KO SYA kasi ako naniniwala na may magagawa syang batas para sa nakararami. Totoo nga… wala syang utang na loob sa mga bumoto sa kanya hehehe… wala sya ginawa eh… sayang lang boto ko.

Donae Faye bakit kaya cya naka ALL CAPS xD

Donae Faye

Donae Faye hayaan nyo na cya. yun ang desisyon nya. malaya cyang pumili ng kandidato nya. sa kadahilanan na si noynoy ay malayo sa puso ni gloria. ang nsaamin lng po sir arron sana naintindihan mo rin kung bakit namen na pili si gordon, bago po ikaw nag post sa isang PROGORDON link.

ayon sa iyo: “pinakitaan lang kayo ng galing ni gordon naniwala naman kayo…sa tingin mo ba sa mga nagawa niya hindi siya kumeta ng milyones?kung hindi yan nangurakot walang pera yan ngayon at hindi tatakbo yan ng pangulo….”

ang lahat ng magagandang nagawa ni gordon ang naging basehan namen, hindi lng dahil sa pang personal na nararamdaman dahil sa mga kandidatong naging kakampi nya noon. sana naiintindihan mo rin. nagiging rasyonal lng kame sa pagpili hindi personal.

@Oliver>>>Oo hindi inambisyon ni noynoy maging presidente, bakit siya tumatakbo? Biktima ka talaga ng mag PALABAS at propaganda ng dilaw kaya ganyan ka. Hindi na kayo nagsawa sa bulok ng sistema ng kampanya-yung dinadaan sa drama para makakuha ng simpatiya, dahil yun lang naman ang kayang gawin. Si Sen.Gordon ay hindi plastik tulad ng abnoy mo, sinasabi niya ang nararamdaman niya at puno siya ng prinsipyo at integridad. Hindi nya para sirain ang track record nya para mangurakot lang… Yung mga walang karanasan ang mas lalong delikadong mangurakot!

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Kathee – nangangako si noynoy ng fair na pamamahala pero yung kamag anak niya hindi niya nagawang motivate na gumawa ng tama? Paano ako maniniwala na maproprotektahan ang karapatan at kalayaan ko sa ibang tao kung sa mismong bakuran ni noynoy at hindi nya nagawang protektahan ang karapatan ng kanilang mga mangagawa?

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Oliver – “ano batayan nyo na hindi maging corrupt c gordon pg.maging presidente?”

– Track Record nya noong sya ay Mayor, SBMA Chairman, Tourism Secretary and PRC Chairman. Meron tayong judicial system, meron tayong proseso sa pag hahabla ng reklamo kung ang isang namumuno ay may ginagawang katiwalian. Madaling mag akusa pero ang panindigan ang iyong pag aakusa ay may kaakibat na responsibilidad. Kung meron silang alinlangan sa pagiging tapat sa panunungkulan ni GORDON, bakit hindi sila nag sampa na kaso sa korte at patunayan sa hukuman ang kanilang aligasyon?

” maging sakim sa pwesto?”

– Si Gordon ay isang LIDER. Ipaglalaban niya kung ano ang TAMA para sa nasasakupan nya. Sa SBMA, kasama siya ng mga lokal sa pag tayo ng Subic mula ng iwan ng mga amerikano. Kasama sya sa pag buo ng pangarap para sa mga mamayan ng olongapo, at ng umupo bilang Presidente si Erap ay inalis niya si GORDON sa SBMA dahil nabigyan siya ng kakahiyang noong pulitin ni GORDON ang upos ng sigarilyo na itinapon nya sa subic noong siya ay senador pa lamang. Hindi masama ang manindigan kung alam mo na TAMA ang iyong pinaglalaban. Hindi niya iiwanan ang kanyang nasasakupan ng dahil lang sa kagustuhan ng nakatataas sa kanya na hindi inalintana ang kanyang karapatan. Ano ang nangyari ng si Payumo ang pumalit sa SBMA, naging kabilaan ang kurapsyon sa Subic (BWSC Contoversy ay isang halimbawa).

“bakit ipilit ang sarili kahit kulilat sa survey?”

– at bakit mo naiisip na ang basehan sa pag takbo sa isang posisyon ay ang SURVEY? Ikaw ba ay natanong na ng SURVEY? Ako hindi pa, ang pamilya at mga kaibigan ko ay hindi rin. Kahit sa “marketing” ay hindi sapat na maging solong batayan sa kalalabasan ng produkto sa mamimili. May alam ka ba kung ilang porsyento lang ang naniniwala sa SURVEY? Ano ba ang halaga ng SURVEY sa isang kandidato? Para malaman kung sila ay mananalo o hindi? O para makalikom ng pondo mula sa mga negosyante at iba pang organisasyon kapalit ang kanilang proteksyon sa kani-kanilang saliring interes.

Huwag natin ipatalo ang ating prinsipyo dahil lang sa kawalan ng tiwala sa mga nakaraang pangyayari. Patuloy tayong manindigan na may magagawa tayo para sa bukas. Kung paulit-ulit man tayong nabibigo, hindi dahil sa mayroong mali sa paninindigan natin, subalit dahil KULANG ANG NA

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Oliver Ponte, Kaibigan Ko, I appreciate your persistence in attempting to rebut the Gordon supporters, kahit much of what you have stated is either inaccurate or simply speculative or not substantive. Sa bagay, the following is my rebuttal to such points, ngunit prepare to honor your promise to support Gordon, if we can convince you that he is the most qualified, which was my challenge to you.

First, understand that surveys are only approximations, and are not necessarily accurate, especially if they are manipulated. Mayroon maraming Gordon supporters which may be ignored by the surveys or downplayed by the media, ngunit it does not mean they do not exist, and polls can change suddenly. Halimbawa, when Gordon was running for the Senate and finally won, the survey rated him sa 29, ngunit ended sa 5, a clearly big difference. Also, here is one survey: http://www.facebook.com/home.php…

Second, on your issue of Gordon being clean, consider that he is Blue Ribbon Committee chairman and authored the bill to fully automate the 2010 elections in order to curtail voter fraud, and he voted for The Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act (SBN-3532). Also, Gordon was the youngest delegate to the 1971 Constitutional Convention, which makes him a living symbol of our democracy. As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Constitutional Amendments and Revision of Laws, he insisted on lawful charter change unexceptionally as prescribed by the Constitution and has rejected bills, which he believed were unconstitutional, such as Gloria Arroyo‘s declaration of martial law sa Maguindanao. Furthermore, Gordon’s apparent upholding of the rule of law and the Constitution clearly illustrates his anti-corrupt convictions.

Third, on your claim of Gordon being pro-GMA, he supports charter change, para GMA would not alter her position of House speaker to prime minister, if she gets elected. Also, he has expressed his condemnation of GMA by stating his plan to alter the Constitution, para the ombudsman would be directly elected by the people, instead of being appointed by the president (The ombudsman to whom he filed a complaint sa ZTE scandal was Mike Arroyo’s classmate).

Finally, Kaibigan Ko, on your analogy of choosing a girl for courtship, love ay kailangan, ngunit, for the sake of practicality iyon ay isang factor in choosing. Kahit love may be the most obvious indicator of “chemistry”, compatibility ay kailangan din, dahil love and emotion are purely psychological traits, ngunit economic and living conditions are tangible, physical conditions, which may restrict a successful relationship. Simply observe separation and broken family cases. Halimbawa, love alone cannot pay bills or put food on the table. Action ay kailangan, kaya Gordon is the most suitable, dahil he is a man of action. What other issues do you have with him?

Kathee Santos

Kathee Santos Wala nga ba talagag nagawa si Noynoy sa lehislatura?

TRUTH: Senator Aquino’s legislative record is filled with bills that push for transparency, accountability, curbing corruption and leveling the playing field so that special relationships do not take precedence over quality public service. A good lawmaker must not be judged solely on the number of laws penned, but the quality of these laws in the interest of the public good. Congress is a democratic institution that is also meant to guard against government excesses. Aquino believes we already have many good laws, and what is needed is proper enforcement.

Paul Bautista

Kaya nga walang naisabatas na bills galing kay noynoy eh dahil walang kabuluhan ang mga yun. Kay Senator Gordon nanggaling ang Automated Elections Law, at naisabatas ito kaya gagamitin na natin ngayon sa unang pagkakataon. Pag boboto ka s May 10 ay maaalala mo si Sen.Gordon dahil boboto ka sa unang pagkakataon na automated…
Ang to tell you. Yung sinasabi mong “filled with bills that push for transparency, accountability, curbing corruption”, lahat naman ay gumagawa niyan, hindi lang siya… Pati si Lito Lapid, Bong Revilla etc…
Sneak Grazz
Sneak Grazz @Oliver – Ako ay humahanga at mayroon kang bukas na kaisapan at kakaiba sa karamihan ng supporter ni NOYNOY na nakausap ko. Iginagalang ko ang pasya mo at ako’y natutuwa bagama’t mag kaiba tayo ng pamamaraan ngunit mayroon tayong iisang layunin na magkaroon ng mabuting pagbabago sa bansa. Tama ka at hindi lang ikaw ang nag iisip na itaya ang boto nila kay NOYNOY dahil kay Gloria. Kung titingnan lang natin ang karakter ng 4 na kandidato (G1BO, NOYNOY, VILLAR at ERAP);maaring tumpak na walang link si NOYNOY kay Gloria ngunit paano tayo makakasiguro na ang taong mga nakapaligid sa kanya ay walang LINK si GMA? Ako ay nababahala lamang kung paano nya paninindigan na ipagtangol ang interes ng nakararaming pilipino kung ang mga nagsasamantala ay mga taong nakapaligid sa kanya. Ako ay bukas sa usaping ang boto sa isang hindi popular na kandidato ay maaring boto sa galamay ni GMA. At ang sinasabi ng karamihan na ang tanging may malakas na laban dito ay ang boto ni NOYNOY. Maaring ikaw ay tama kung ang puntong realismo ang titingnan natin, subalit sapat ba itong dahilan upang bitiwan nating tuluyan ang puntong idealismo na sinimulang ituro sa atin ng tayo’y nasa elementarya pa lamang? Ang ganang akin lamang ay kung hindi sa panahong ito natin ipagpapatuloy ang maprinsipyong pag halal, kailan at sino ang mag papatuloy? Kung sa bawat halalan na susunod ay parehong pangangatwiran ang paiiralin natin, sa susunod na salin-lahi ay ganun pa rin ang kanilang yayakapin. Tayo’ng mga nakatatanda ang inspirasyon at
batayan ng mga nakababata, hindi ba dapat tayo ang magsimula at hindi sila.
Ako ay mananatiling boboto kay GORDON, hindi dahil sa kasalukuyan ay siya ang pikakuwalipikado bilang lider. Iboboto ko siya dahil alam ko na siya ang bukod tanging pumasa sa pamantayan ko bilang isang maprinsipyong botante. Ang iboboto ko ay isang lider na mayroon ng napatunayang kakayahan sa pamamahala, isang lider na nag silbing inspirasyon sa karamihan na baguhin ang kanilang nakagawiang buhay tungo sa isang produktibong indibidwal. Isang lider na nagpakita na ng pagkamatuwid at katatagan sa pamumuno. Isang lider na may kongkretong plano at may angking higit sa karaniwang talino. Isang lider na nakakasalamuha ng karaniwang tao, boluntaryong tumutulong sa mga proyekto at gawaing para sa ikabubuti
ng isang pamayanan. Isang lider na kayang ipagtangol ang kanyang nasasakupan. Isang lider na kaya kong pagmalaki kahit kanino.Noong nakaraang eleksiyon, ibinoto ko si ROCO subalit hindi sya nanalo dahil sa usaping makinarya. Subalit hindi ako nagsisisi dahil alam ko hindi ako naging bahagi ng pagkakamali ng nakararami ng iboto si GMA. Kapag ako ay tinatanong
kung galit ako kay GMA, ang aking sagot ay “dapat ba akong sa kanya lang magalit?” Isang sagot sa pamamagitan ng isang tanong. Lahat tayo ay may kaakibat na responsibilidad bilang bahagi ng isang lipunan. Kung sa tingin natin na tayo ay naging isang mabuti at responsableng mamayan, nag babayad ng tamang buwis at sumusunod sa batas at kapag nababalitaan natin ang kawalang hiyaan ng mga iilan na malapit kay GMA totoong hindi natin maiwasan ang mag mura at ipahayag ang sama ng loob. Ngunit naitanong ba natin sa ating sarili kung mayroon tayong nagawa upang mapigilang makaupo ang kanasusuklaman nating namumuno? Marahil sasabihin natin na “hindi naman natin alam na ganyan gagawin nya”, tama! Hindi natin alam na ganyan ang gagawin niya dahil tinuruan niya tayong hawakan ang kanyang mga “PANGARAP”. Hindi tayo naging masusi sa pag pili, nadala tayo sa simpatya at emosyon ng pangangampanya. Marahil ang iba ay isasagot na hindi naman si GMA ang lehitimong Pangulo, maaring tama at may iilang nag pagamit sa pandaraya subalit hindi ba natin naisip na sila ay biktima din at kahalintulad ng karamihan.Ako’y sumasang-ayon na kulang na kulang ang makinarya ni GORDON para abutin ang bawat sulok ng pilipinas. Kaya kami
nanawagan sa sinumang naniniwala sa kanya na maging boluntaryo sa pangangampanya. Kumilos at gumawa ng paraang makatulong para sa pagbabago. Kung ang simula ng pagbabago ay ibinigay sa pilipino at nahalal si GORDON sa
pagkapangulo, masasabi ko na magsisilbing inspirasyon sa maraming pilipino na gawin ang tama at walang imposible kung sama-sama at sabay-sabay sa paghakbang patungo sa pangarap natin na inaasam.Simulan nating ibalik ang maprinsipyong pagboto, piliin natin yung pinuno na kaya nating ipagmalaki sa anak natin at sa
mga susunod na henerasyon. Simulan natin sa ating pamilya, tanungin natin kung anong klaseng lider ang hanap nila. Kung
mayroon kang anak… sino sa mga tumatakbong kandidato sa pagkapangulo ang gusto mong tularan nila?

“TRUTH: Senator Aquino… See More’s legislative record is filled with bills that push for transparency, accountability, curbing corruption and leveling the playing field so that special relationships do not take precedence over quality public service.

– Nasan yung mga Bill na sinasabi mo regarding transparency, accountability, curbing corruption and leveling the playing field? Bakit hindi naging batas? If may quality yung mga ginawa niyang bill bakit hindi nya naipasa sa plenaryo para maging batas? Ibig ba sabihin nyan yung mga kasamahan nya sa lehislatura ay hindi ginagawa ang kanilang trabaho? Bakit si Lito Lapid, sa 117 na isunumite niya ay nakapag pasa ng 1? Hindi ba nakalagay sa “noynoy page” na dati ay naniniwala si NOYNOY na marami ng batas ang Pilipinas at kailangan lang ng maayos na pagpapatupad. Ang tanong ko lang bakit sa lehislatura siya tumakbo? Bakit hindi sa ehikutibo?

Si Sen.Dick Gordon lang ang talagang may prinsipyo sa lahat ng kandidato dahil siya lang ang tumatakbo na tapos ang 6 years in the Senate niya dahiltinutupad niya ang tungkulin bilang Senador!!!
Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Kathee – Hindi ko tinatawaran ang kanyang kaalaman. Marahil kung ikukumpara sa akin ay matalino sya hehehe. Tama naman, meron syang mga adbokasiya at meron din naman ang ibang kandidato. Maaring sa ibang punto ay di hamak na mas maganda yung kanyang plataporma pero ang pinag uusapan dito ay kakayahan nya kumpara sa ibang kakayahan ng iba pang kandidato sa pagkapangulo. Pasensya na, hindi kasi ako “wishful thinker”. Sa pagpili ng lider hinahanap ko yung mga nagawa nya sa nakaraan upang pag basehan kung ano ang kaya nyang gawin sa hinaharap.

Halimbawa;
Ang isang Nokia N97 ay hindi ko masasabing maganda kung hindi ko nasubukan gumamit ng N95 <o anumang mababang modelo ng Nokia>

o kaya…

Ang isang barbero o mangugupit ay hindi mo pagkakatiwalaang ayusin ang iyong buhok kung hindi mo pa siya nakita kung paano gumupit at kung ano ang hitsura ng kanyang gupit.

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Oliver – kaibigan, maraming salamat at ikaw ay pumili ng kandidato ng mayroong malalim na dahilan na maaring hindi saklaw ng kaisipan ng iilan. Ilang araw pa naman bago ang halalan, sana ay bigyan mo ng oras na silipin ang aming fan page at muling basahin at pag aralan ang posibilidad na manalo si GORDON sa halalan. Maaring sa inyong lokalidad ay wala kaming katulong sa pagpapakilala sa kanya at kung sakali man na mayroon kang makilala ka na kabahagi namin, maari bang kami ay iyong tulungan upang maipaabot namin sa aming kauri ang anumang suporta na kailangan niya.

Sabay sabay tayo sa pagbabago.

Kung ganoon, hindi tama na iboto mo si noynoy dahil lang sa survey. Alam mo kung bakit? Pag binoto mo si Noynoy at nanalo siya, tapos pumalpak (na hindi malayong mangyari). Sisisihin mo ang sarili mo. Pero kung binoto mo si Gordon, manalo o matalo ay kampante ka sa sarili mo dahil alam mong binoto mo ang talagang nararapat. At hindi lang yan, maipagmamalaki mo pa kahit kanino na binoto mo ang pinaka BEST. And this will reflect in your own personality…
Kasi kapag maniwala ka sa survey, parang hinayaan mo na ding diktahan ka ng iba kung sino ang iboboto mo, at kapag sumunod ka, ang tawag sayo ay uto uto… Sana manindigan ka… Para sayo din yan at para sa bayan…

Kathee Santos Ganda ng nagawa sa subic, kaya lang sin city. pano naman yung paglaganap ng child prostitution? anong ginawa ni dick tungkol don? di lang child, pati adult, para lang i-please yung mga foreigners…
sana mapatunayan ninyo na hindi pakitang tao si dick. kasi nung bigayan na ng relief goods sa mga victims, eh nagpahintay pa daw siya para lang sa photo-op.

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Kathee – paumanhin, hindi ko pinapatulan ang ganyang klaseng argumento. Simple lang naman sagot ko diyan, kung may nagawang mali, sampahan ng kaso at panindigan sa hukuman. Katulad ng hindi ko pag patol sa mga isyu tungkol sa kundisyon ng kaisipan ni noynoy. Kung mapapansin mo, hindi ako umabot sa lebel na ganyan sa mga nauna kong argumento.

@Katheeee>>>Give us proofs! Puro lang naman kayo tsismis eh… Wag mong sirain ang mga magagandang ginawa ni Gordon nang dahil lang sa mga walang kuwentang tsismis! Pulitika ito hindi showbiz. Sa mga salita mo pa lang Kathee, alam ko na level ng utak at pag iisip mo…

Kathee Santos

Kathee Santos @paul cruz: “Sa mga salita mo pa lang Kathee, alam ko na level ng utak at pag iisip mo…” –YON ang superiority complex. hirap sa mga taong tulad mo, know-it-all masyado, hindi nangrerespeto sa opinion ng iba. yan ba ang katangian nagustuhan ninyo kay Gordon?

take note sabi ko SANA MAPATUNAYAN ninyo na hindi pakitang tao. kasi gusto ko rin makakita ng pruweba.

Kathee Santos

Kathee Santos isa ka pa nathan, may superiority complex ka din. “Kung mapapansin mo, hindi ako umabot sa lebel na ganyan sa mga nauna kong argumento.” feeling mo you’re better than everybody else. hayy.. pag narcissistic nga naman oo…

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Katleen – mam huwag po tayong emosyonal. Ang ibig ko pang sabihin ay hindi ko binibigyan ng anumang kumento ang isang bagay na batay sa pansariling pananaw ng nag lalahad. Ang isyu po ng isang volunteer ukol sa “photo-op” issue ay isang paglalahad ng ayon sa kanyang pagkakaunawa. Hindi ko po alam kung ano ang pangalan ng nag lahad at hindi naman po siya tumayo at nanindigan sa harap ng publiko upang patunayan ang kanyang aligasyon. Katulad po ng hindi ko pag gamit sa napapabalitang kapansanan ni NOYNOY na isiniwalat sa publiko ng iilan pero wala namang tumayo at nanindigan upang ito ay patotohanan.

Sa usaping SIN CITY, ang usapin iyan ay hindi maikakaila na pinangalingan ng OLONGAPO lalo na noong panahon ng base ng mga amerikano subalit kung aking babangitin muli ang OLONGAPO ay kaagad natin naalala ang isang Modelong Bayan. Malinis, may pagkakaisa, maunlad at masarap mamuhay sa lugar. Maaring ang iilan ay hindi pa rin maalis ang unang imahe subalit sa pamamagitan ng ilang patakaran ni GORDON ay nagkaroon ng pagbabago. Katulad ng pagbibigay ng mataas na antas ng responsibilidad sa pulisya, pagkakaroon ng pagkakakilanlan, pagsasa ayos ng mga pasilidad na may kaugnayan sa kalinisan at kalusugan. Ang pagkakaroon ng disiplina at kaayusan sa kalsada at mga pampublikong sasakyan. Ang pag gamit ng mga slogan upang ang bawat lokal na mamayan ay kumilos at makisali sa pag unlad ng bayan. Masugid niyang nilabanan ang prositusyon at kahit sa ibang bayan sya ay humarap sa husgado upang malitis at maparusahan ang dayuhang akusado.

Iyan po ay iilan lamang sa mga kaparaanan na ginawa ni gordon upang malinis at mabawasan kung hindi man tuluyang maalis ang prostitusyon sa OLONGAPO.

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Oliver – maraming salamat sa tulong mo kaibigan. Makakaasa ka na kung sino man ang manalo at maupo bilang pinuno ng bansa, ako ay mananatili bilang isang mabuting mamayan at tutulong upang mapanatili ang demokrasya at maging bahagi para sa mabuting pagbabago, para sa atin, sa pilipino at sa susunod na salinlahi.

@Nat>>> di ko na sila pinapansin, mga Losers kasi. Sayang lang ang panahon… Oo nga mainit pala jan sa atin. Dito sa saudi sa june pa iinit ng matindi. Mga emosyonal talaga ang mga yan, kaya tignan mo, konting sabihin negatibo tinatablan na. Pero ayaw naman nilang aminin na BALAT SIBUYAS sila na biktima ng EMO POLITICS… Kawawang pinas pag manalo si abnoy. Wala na talagang asenso.
Kathee Santos

Kathee Santos Thanks Nathan for that comprehensive explanation.

Jose A. Acelajado

Jose A. Acelajado Gordon-Fernando for a better Philippines!

Jose A. Acelajado

Jose A. Acelajado Malapit na May 10, 2010, let us convince our fellow voters to know their Precinct Number, and sequence numbers in the Precinct Computerized Voters List (PCVL) as it will be very time consuming for a voter to look for this on election day! The number of voters in some precincts reach up to 900+ voters! Maybe we should urge the COMELEC to note if the BEI’s have the right to extend the time duration in situations wherein a considerable percentage of voters in a certain precinct was not able to vote before 6pm, on May 10, 2010! there may be a failure of elections when a considerable number of voters fails to vote and that the margin between the candidates votes are to be affected by the number of voters who were not able to vote!

Din Laviste

Din Laviste @Kathee: Tama ka, pero sila ay mga dual citizens na may karapatan pa ring bumoto. Media lang ang basehan ng opinyon? Hindi ba that is the purpose of media, to keep us informed? Kahit dito sa Pilipinas, papaano ba natin kinikilala ang mga kandidato? hindi ba mula sa TV din, at sa mga forums na pinapakita? I know of someone who is a dual citizen at nagresearch pa siya sa internet tungkol sa mga kandidato upang makapagpili siya nang maayos. Some of them are even more rational than those living in the Philippines. I call them patriots, dahil may pakialam pa rin sila sa Pilipinas, kahit na hindi sila nakatira dito ngayon.Nasa ibang bansa man sila, umasta man sila, pareho karapatan nila sa’yo.

Kathee Santos

Kathee Santos @Din: Yup, I know, I’d just like to point out that we shouldn’t fall for what the media gives us hook, line, and sinker. All of us should be able to discern the truth from the lies.

I hope for his sake na boboto siya, hindi yung nang-iinis lang dito sa mga forums, mang babanat ng “EMO politics”, eh nasa ibang bansa naman pala siya. Analogy: Hindi mo naman kasi malalaman ang temperatura ng tubig kung hindi mo pinangliligo iyon.

@dIN>>>Ang hirap kausap ng hindi makaintindi ano? Nasa ibang bansa nga ako pero alam kong lahat ang nangyayari jan! I watch tv news, documentaries, newspapers etc. Baka mas marami pa nga akong alam jan kay kath. Malamang dahil kita naman sa pinili naming kandidato.
@Kath>>> FYI, nakaboto na ako dito sa Saudi. And guess who I voted for??? You can answer it…
Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Katlee – mam dudugtungan ko lang po yung analogy nyo smile emoticon

“Analogy: Hindi mo naman kasi malalaman ang temperatura ng tubig kung hindi mo pinangliligo iyon. ”

madam, maari din po tayo gumamit ng panukat ng temperatura (thermometer) upang malaman natin kung malamig, maligamgam o mainit ang isang tubig.

Kathee Santos

Kathee Santos Kinda figuring someone would be literal and say that, pero hindi mo mararamdaman ang temperatura ng tubig kung hindi mo pinanliligo iyon.

Sneak Grazz

Sneak Grazz @Kathlee – madam sa pagsukat din po ng performance ng isang mangagawa, lider o pinuno meron pang pamamaraan kung paano ito sukatin ng hindi bias kaninuman. Kung kayo po ay partikular sa estratihiya na ipinakilala ni Dr. Kaplan and Norton, ang BALANCED SCORE CARD.

Bigyan nyo po ng panahon silipin ang link na ito..

http://www.facebook.com/search/…

Iyan po ay isang simpleng BALANCED SCORE CARD. Ang bawat kandidato ay sinukat sa magkakahalintulad na pamantayan.

Tama po kayo, ang pinakamabilis na paraan upang malaman kung ang isang tubig ay mainit o malamig ay kung ipinapaligo mo po ito pero meron din pong ibang kapamaraanan na pwedeng magbigay ng parehong sagot, ang pag gamit ng sukatan (thermometer).

Marcial Bonifacio

Marcial Bonifacio Madame Kathee, Gordon has been a Red Cross volunteer, since he was 17, and pledges to continue his service even as president, so it seems highly unlikely that he is doing this exclusively for show.

Kathee Santos
Kathee Santos Okay… good point.
Even if he strikes me as extremely arrogant/self-absorbed, I will consider him. Him or Noynoy.
Just to keep it straight, Ninoy’s fraternity is endorsing Gordon because Dick himself IS an Upsilonian.

Din Laviste
Din Laviste In addition Marcial, when asked what he is going to do if he loses presidency, he plans to continue on being a Red Cross volunteer, which he does by the way for free.
@Kathee: Noynoy’s fraternity you mean?

Kathee Santos

Kathee Santos Ninoy’s smile emoticon Noynoy’s not an Upsilonian.

kesa mag away away kayo lahat,,,wat matters most is to respect yung free will ng bawat isa if sino man iboboto nya…

my reason sya kung baket yun yung pinili nyang kandidato…

and stop acting like parang hindi ka plipino kung makapag salita ka…alalahanin mo pilipino ka rin,,,ginagawa mung ewan yung sarili mo dahil isa ka ring NOYPI…

Randy Antonio Reyes

Randy Antonio Reyes basta ako hindi pa tinanong sa survey…

Axel Noble

Axel Noble pa tag naman koa d2! smile emoticon

Din Laviste

Din Laviste @Kathee: Ipagpaumahin mo, tama ka, Ninoy pala.smile emoticon Its interesting though, kasi, they could also have voted for Noynoy dahil anak siya ng bro nila na si Ninoy, pero, as this article testifies, they chose Gordon because of his credentials and track record, and they believe he is the most qualified versus the rest. They knew him personally kaya sila mismo, alam anong kakayahan ni Gordon, and it just so happens na Upsilonian din siya. Please refer to this article tungkol dito: http://www.journal.com.ph/…/6856-ninoys-frat-backs…

Cindy Bangcawayan

Cindy Bangcawayan @Marvz Sison: Open your eyes to the scandals and corruptions done by Villar. Pwede ba, use your mind sa pagbili ng president mo.

Din Laviste

Din Laviste We are exchanging each other’s homeworks here in the event that we might have information others may not know of, or they may have information that will be useful in our journey in deciding whom we are voting for as president. We attempt to convince each other because we are hoping that we would vote together as one nation for the same candidate we all think would be best for our country. Kahit na we all have our different views, even if in the end we still end up voting different candidates, at least there is the desire to be united in one decision for the Phiiippines, and that the Filipino people know how to think rationally on what is best for them!

Donna Arong

Donna Arong Go for Gordon, kung magreresearch lang sana tayong lahat tungkol kay GORDON, malalaman natin ang lahat ng ginawa niya at kung ano pang pwede nyang gawin.. hindi sya sikat, wala sya masyadong ads, un ang kahinaan nia..hindi nia magawang ipakita at buksan ang pag-iisip ng iba na pwede at maari syang magdala ng mabuting pagbabago sa bansa.
