I have never been very active in the Political activities here in the Philippines. When I left, not much was happening, but I can say that there has been quite a lot that has happened in my lifetime already.
We had quite a number of ‘People Power Revolution‘ already, and now people are quite confused as to the real number of times it did happen. Why the confusion? Because a lot of different organizations tried to copy the original, which happened during the time of the late dictator, Ferdinand Marcos.
The next successful attempt at a revolution was during the time of President Estrada, which actually put President Macapagal Arroyo (she was the Vice President then) in office. After that, Arroyo run for office again, but I can not say that it was magnanimous.
Anyway, this is just a preview. The political arena here in the Philippines is one that is caught between hellish and comical. *sigh* Now, there are a lot of allegations that the First Gentleman is doing anomalous deals, yet nothing is being done about it. The president even commented that she can still sleep tight at night. And that’s without even explaining her family’s side of the story.
Ugh! I’m telling you guys, this is the reason why I tried to shut my ears and my eyes before. Because the people who can actually do something is not moving – at all! If I rant about it, it’s not as if I’ll be able to accomplish anything. Geez.
Yet still, for some reason, I feel the need to keep on ranting about it. If I’m not heard, at least I voiced out my opinion. My beliefs.
