CAN I JUST RANT?

It has been a crazy weeks for us with this virus still out there, it is our true enemy but why does the government see the people as their enemy instead?

I used to hate talking about politics and I still do because I don’t know much about it. I hate arguing and I pretty much like to be ignorant with what’s happening to steer clear of negative vibes but right now it’s not just about politics, it’s also about being a humanitarian and turning a blind eye to what this fascist government is doing to our country and how they treat our fellow Filipinos just makes you like one of them.

Yes, given the fact that they still go outside amidst this pandemic and the government ordering the enhanced quarantine to somehow contain the virus from further spreading but the people barely make it through a day in their normal lives what more with this lockdown that their only form of providing for their family and for themselves is by working? And the government wants the people to listen when the message that they try to convey is anti-poor? How will you make the people listen if you try to communicate with them through fear and making them more hungrier than they were yesterday?

To the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, I have not been a fan since your day 1 but I had hope for a change like you said. I tolerate your language because I guess that’s how you really are but in times like this a message of encouragement and hope is much needed from you rather than imposing threats and fear to your countrymen. People are finally waking up now Mr. President, we will no longer be quiet.

To the people defending this government including some of my friends and family, saying that what the president said was taken out of context, it’s not just about what he said because this wouldn’t even happen if the president was transparent with his concrete plan for this crisis (if there is such a plan). Where did the 200 Billion go? What did he do with his special power? What will happen to the Philippines? If you still don’t see why this is such a big issue, please open your heart and mind and see what this is doing to our less fortunate countrymen.

PHILIPPINE ELECTION 2016

It was my first time to exercise my right to vote today. The excitement was there, I feel like I’m officially a part of my country being able to have a say on who’s going to lead our nation. It was great to be heard. The process was quite irritating though, I had to wait in a long line before I could vote but other than that there was no other problem.

Politics in the Philippines is an interesting topic to talk about, it’s like a movie there’s action, drama, comedy even romance lol. It’s sad, dirty and funny and every election, it’s like all the citizens in the Philippines suddenly become a political analysts. Suddenly they became opinionated about politics and became a know-it-all (I’m becoming one now lol). This 2016 election was by far the funniest because mainly social media was involved, lots of memes circulating, lots of opinions being thrown but this election it’s like people are really clamoring for change, citizens of the Philippines finally woke up (did they?). Filipinos are very desperate for change that’s why most of them voted for the president who is an authoritarian, disciplinarian and kind of a dictator. It seemed that everyone wanted to bring back that “Marcos” era where Philippines was very developed they say but also millions of lives were taken. The funny thing is that Filipinos can easily forget because back then Filipinos did a revolution that stopped Marcos’ dictatorship but now they sort of wanted that kind of leadership again?

We could have had the best president who was known as the Iron Lady of Asia, overqualified candidate who studied at the finest schools and universities, served in the three branches of the government and the only thing that stopped you was her health that she doesn’t even worry about.

So most of the Filipinos chose a MAYOR who only led a city that ranks 9th safest city in the world, yes it was impressive but leading a city is not the same as leading a whole country.

Okay I’m going to stop there before I say something else and this post becomes another rant post lol.

All I wish for the new president and I guess that it’s Mayor Duterte or should I say President Duterte now (even if the vote counts are still partial). I wish that you can prove me wrong for my judgments against you. I want you to do what you said that we should all have a RULE OF LAW so please stop the “jokes” about doing extrajudicial killings just to suppress crimes. Just do your best, have morality, please watch your words and be decent. I also wish that the democracy that Filipinos fought for 30 years ago will remain.

And to the Filipinos the true change starts with you. STOP COMPLAINING AND WHINING. JUST ACT. The problem in our country are discipline and action. Even if your president is very competent but you yourself don’t follow the rules and you don’t act on the wrong doings, it’s all a waste.

Good luck Philippines, God bless us all.
