Halalan 2022: The PDP-Laban ticket process has been a total mess…

Yesterday, Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Tesoro Go or “Bong Go” stepped down from his candidacy as a Presidential Candidate on the PDP-Laban ticket. Since 15th November 2021 the PDP-Laban had written on their resolution no. 16 to support the candidacy of Bong Go – Duterte tandem ticket. This was supported and stated by the National Executive Committee of the PDP-Laban. Therefore, the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino – Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) is now without candidates in the highest offices.

The President has announced during November that he suddenly would be a candidate for the Senate. Meaning he will not stand as a Vice-President and compete with his daughter Sara Duterte who is standing on another ticket as a VP. Therefore, “Bong Go” and Rodrigo have both backed off and ditched the main tickets of the PDP-Laban ticket.

Yes, this is also following the Ronald “Bato” Del Rosa who first stood as the Presidential Candidate, because he was available and that got changed to “Bong Go”. Now, all three is gone and the PDP-Laban is a lot of wasted space.

The PDP-Laban could just have fielded Manny Pacquiao, but they rather run with none or run on empty. They practically don’t have an VP or a Presidential Candidate for 2022 at this late stage. Yes, COMELEC have no official withdrawal letter from “Bong Go” so it’s not official, but the message is already out.

PDP-Laban is total chaos with this… Just the announcing of “Bato” and dropping him for “Bong Go”. Rodrigo Duterte went from VP to be come a senator. While the PDP-Laban lost Pac-Man as well, who is running on another ticket. This is all showing how the party have done it and it have been hectic.

If this is all done to support Bong Bong Marcos – Duterte ticket. It is really foolish of them, if that is the end game. Because, what worth is the party? If they can easily trade it all away for political alliances and family members who is participating for others? Is the PDP-Laban party that easily traded away?

Because, Inday Sara is running elsewhere… the PDP-Laban have to be crucified on the national level? That’s how it looks like and it’s just weak tea. Who knew they lacked so much character and finesse to give up in this way.

Not like “Bato” or “Bong Go” was any good as Presidential Candidates. They are both side-kicks and loyal token soldiers of Duterte. These two doesn’t have the spine to stand-up for themselves. This is why they can be so easily shelved and not mattering. It is tragic that they make “Isko Moreno” look smart… which isn’t supposed to be a thing. However, that is what they are up to and it’s not looking good.

Who knew the PDP-Laban would be this sort of circus and be this chaotic…. This is supposed to be the parties who supposed to run a republic and have certain measures to secure things runs in order. PDP-Laban should be run better, but that is clearly to much to ask…

Bong Go” dropping out is just showing why he was the side-kick and the water-boy of Duterte all these years. His the enforcer and the ones who deals with the decrees of the President. He isn’t a man to carry his own. That is why it’s right for him to back-off. However, why was the party believing in this man in the first place?

That just shows the foolishness … and how dumb this process has been. There is nothing in this that you can take as a smooth or a wise move. Unless, it is to strategically give BBM-Duterte an easier way into 2022. If that is the case… the trade-off better be golden and the treasury chest promised should cover all expenses for decades to come. Since, the “Bong Bong” Marcos still has plunder money to pay for his politicking. Peace.

Opinion: Inday Sara gets the whole machine behind her

The current Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Caprio or Inday Sara is getting everyone behind her it seems. The CMD-Lakas has given her the vouch of approval and also the chairmanship of her party. PFP and Ferdinand Marcos Junior is supporting her Vice-Presidential race as a tandem vote. The People’s Reform Party is vouching for Sara as the VP and their candidate in in the race. While the PDP-Laban party and Presidential Candidate “Bong Go” is vying for Inday Sara as well. Therefore, everyone is seeking her graces at this point.

That says a lot really, but why is it like this? Why does everyone want to play with her? Is it because she’s the rising star or is ti because of the influence of her father as well. This is maybe why the PDP-Laban haven’t anointed anyone directly to be the VP candidate there for now. They hope she will be part of the ticket there too.

However, she is directly campaigning with Bong Bong Marcos. That is in all our messages and her statements of now. The ticket she is running on is directly being part of the Marcos launch plan. Inday Sara is clearly taking the risk and hopes for the rewards for doing so. Being part of a dynasty ticket and getting monetary gains into a campaign. Since, BBM and the family of plunders have the funds to have a vast campaign for her.

With doing that, she is indirectly vouching for the son of a dictator. Inday Sara has to take the blunt disregard and the disrespect of the EDSA revolution. She has to carry the weight of the martial laws and the tyranny, which the father did in his life-time. Bong Bong Marcos isn’t his father, but he has dismissed and downplayed the actions of his father. Neither has the Marcos family repaid or tried to take account for the plundering, which also happened and has been reported. The vast wealth was built on the state and siphoning funds. These haven’t been returned to the Republic and now some of that might be spent on the Inday Sara campaign.

She is initially accepting this blood-money for a stake at power. Inday Sara is accepting trading morals and credibility over a quick buck. Yes, that will make it easier and the venues might be bought without any issues. Inday Sara will get the promotion materials, the airtime and the TV-Ads needed to be in people’s mind all the time. Nevertheless, the price of that is working and accepting the neglect of the victims of the Marco’s reign. Since the son has never responded or cared for it. He only saw the beautiful side of his reign and enjoyed spoils. That’s why he will not address the reasons for the popular revolution, which caused the end of his fathers reign.

Now, Inday Sara will have to eat that bullet. She might shred tears and say she will push him. Nevertheless, she will be indebted to him and the slot he gave her. The agreement there comes with a cost and she cannot push or burn that bridge. The PDP-Laban slot might be a life-line, but then she will not have the same machinery behind her.

In CMD-Lakas and PFP she has two parties behind. While also having possible suitors in PRP and PDP-Laban. With that in mind, Inday Sara has several of friends who can back her. Now, she just have to prove her policies and worth. So, that she can be edible and able to sell Marcos to the public as well. Inday Sara has to make Bong Bong Marcos people friendly and a viable option. That’s not easy. BBM has never made that easy and he shreds doubts, again and again. She has to in-debt prove his value. That is a task I don’t ever want. No matter how much money you throw on my desk.

Inday Sara has a hurdle ahead of her. Yes, the machinery is behind her. Still, the machine can easily default or have technical difficulties. It is all fun and games when everything is working. However, when you have down-time and stoppage time. Awaiting the mechanics. At that time, the true face of the character comes forward and how she carries the trouble ahead. Right now is the honeymoon stage.

While the true campaigns are soon hitting the streets and there will be no turning back. Peace.

Halalan 2022: Is President Duterte giving way to Inday Sara? [That’s how it seems to me]

We all know why this happens as the PFP and CMD-Lakas have fielded their main candidates, which is Ferdinand Marcos “Bong Bong” Jr. as the Presidential Candidate and Sara Duterte Carpio as the Vice-Presidential Candidate. This was released during the weekend and some anticipation of a VP battle between father and daughter.

Now, today that’s dismissed. Again the PDP-Laban ticket gets altered, as Bong Go is the Presidential Candidate, because “Bato” Del Rosa withdraw from the race. We don’t know who will be the VP of the PDP-Laban anymore. Since the current President Rodrigo Duterte announced today that his standing as a Senatorial race in 2022.

Therefore, the current President isn’t only going down a peg, but his going to Congress. He will be one of the footsoldiers of the government and positive votes with the chamber. Duterte is downgrading his office and stance by a mile. He went from being a mayor for years in Davao City to become the President.

Now, he will be a Senator and running on a list. Where there is 12 seats to win and the most popular senators are the ones who is elected into it. He is risking becoming a side-show or a benign player in the game of politics. The reason for doing is to not compete directly with his daughter. That is what it looks like.

Since him standing as a Senator goes against the PDP-Laban resolution of the ticket of him as a VP and Bong Go as the Presidential candidate. Now, that is not worth the ink on the paper. The PDP-Laban party is clearly not as important as the future of the family. That is how this seems.

Yes, the President is showing that he won’t go hard on his daughter. He only questioned her aspiration, as he thought she should seek the office of President and not VP. The CMD-Lakas statement shows they are proud to her on the team. PFP was happy too. So, both parties of Arroyo and Marcos seems like winners. While the PDP-Laban is further weakened, because of family loyalty.

That is how an outsider looking in… make seems. It is all politics and Inday Sara has tried to pick the parties and “sponsors” to bring her nationally. That is how it seems here. While her father is stepping to a smaller role and hoping to get re-elected into prominence. He can live of his name and he shows was never retiring. Which he promised to do ahead of 2016 as well. So, saying so in 2021 was just buying time to configure the game-plan.

Rodrigo seems to be very favourable towards the daughter instead of his supposed new role or place. He might say it is differently and he has considered all avenues. However, we know he couldn’t rant or tarnish his own kin. We know he couldn’t ambush or abuse his platform to desecrate her. Neither could accept to be humiliated and mocked by his daughter either. That will not happen.

We are just seeing the President giving way to Inday Sara. That is very clear. There is no other way of seeing this… Since the President has kept the political dynasties close, except for a few chosen few. His kin seems to do the same. That’s why Inday is running on the same ticket as Marcos. That will be a hard bargain and making him “edible” for more people. While the son of the former dictator cannot run away from his antics and lack of care for the dictatorship that enriched his family. The plundering and the martial law, which caused the People Power and EDSA revolution. Therefore, she has to waver with this and being able to sell that… this is something I don’t understand that she’s willing to do and surely the promises have to vastly fortunate to her.

We are clearly seeing that the choices of Inday Sara is blocking the President moving forward. That is really clear and that’s how I am seeing this. I just wonder how the PDP-Laban will fill it’s ticket now and who will be the new unique character to run with Bong Go. Peace.

Halalan 2022: Duterte Versus Duterte?

Today, it was revealed that some of the “holding” candidates dropped out and the real candidacies got on paper. Some was anticipated … and this isn’t that shocking, as the candidates in question did a last minute step to go into the ring and backing down makes sense. We can maybe expect some more or just reveal the final tickets. However, today reveals a real unique case, which isn’t that usual or even common anywhere.

The PDP-Laban ticket is getting back to what the party already made a memo or a resolution earlier in the year. So, Ronald “Bato” Del Rosa have revoked his candidacy and withdraws as a Presidential Candidate. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Tesoro Go or “Bong Go” is becoming the Presidential Candidate. While the current President Rodrigo Duterte is running as the Vice-President in the up-coming elections.

This means the PDP-Laban will be going with the Bong Go – Duterte ticket. While the PDP-Laban made the changes and the President is scheduled to field his candidacy over the weekend. A family member made change on her own.

The PFP and Ferdinand Marcos “Bong” Junior presidency got an boost as Lakas CMD have declared Sara Duterte Carpio as the Vice President on the same ticket. This mean the son of the Marco’s dictatorship and Duterte’s daughter is running mates. Which in the end means that Rodrigo and Sara is going head-to-head for the office.

This means father and daughter will be competing for the same office. Sara have already been the Davao City Mayor just like her father was. They have both had this office and now she’s also seeking a high ranking official space. What is striking is that she joins on the Marcos ticket and will with this accept the plundering ways of that family.

Sara Duterte Carpio might get the finances and the benefits of the agreements ahead of the race. While the father has the big-name and recognition. Heck, the father might have more popularity and get more favourable headlines. She has to prove herself nationally and cannot just ride on her family name.

Inday Sara have to show herself and not think she can walk into this without any issues. First, she has to address the elephant in the room. As she’s just there because of her father. Secondly, she has to address and be able to articulate her support for Marcos. These two things are just the beginning… before even asking about policies, plans or even use her skills for the high ranking office.

It will be a weird race to see father and daughter battling out for the same office. Both racing to become the VP. They are both willing to fight for the same office. I wonder if Rodrigo will be as brutal and sincere in concern to his daughter? Will Rodrigo go as hard or be as blunt, as he is with any other competitor?

Will Sara throw her father under the bus and bury his achievements? Will she sound like an opposition candidate and answer back with a fierce tone?

Or will these two be a friendly faces and act like nothing. Because, these two are family and in the end… blood is thicker than water. Time will tell…

But seeing Duterte versus Duterte… that’s a mess and I wonder what is the plan behind this. Because, they are not the only candidates and the risks of doing this. They both might loose and some other catch more interest. There might be a will and a foresight to pick someone else.

Now we only have time and wisdom. What we do however see is how PDP-Laban and the Marcos is playing these games. This will become hectic and at some time or another. We can await a erratic and a thunderstorm coming to the press. As both Duterte’s have to get the upper-hand and someone will unleash their vicious side. I just anticipate that. Since they wont to win and I don’t think any of them will leave anything to chance. Peace.

Philippines: Partido Federal Ng Pilipinas (PFP) – Executive Committee – Resolution (13.11.2021)

Philippines: Oxford Philippines Society (OPS) – Official Statement on the Oxford Philippines Society on “BongBong Marcos”

Halalan 2022: Presidential Mediocrity [2 in 1 analysis of the tickets]

Today, the total of Presidential Candidates are finalized. Already looked into a few who was scheduled to become candidates. Some did and some didn’t. This is the ones that will PDP-Laban’s Rodrigo Duterte. That will not be an easy challenge. The person needs tenacity and strength. Also, have ability to stand strong with all the political dynasties and in-fighting in the Congress.

There been speculations who would be next and who would stand as candidates. The incumbent party PDP-Laban is sending Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa. A former police officer turned senator. A man who doesn’t see himself as a statesmen. He is also the man behind Duterte’s war on drugs. So, this man has no trouble using violence. The second man on the ticket is the mid-term elected senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Tesoro Go or “Bong Go” as the Vice-President. He is Duterte sidekick and “utility” man. In that regard, they hope he will “Bato” executive assistant. Just like he was all the years in Davao.

The Liberal Party and current Vice-President Leni Robredo is vying the highest office. She had a hectic term and haven’t been in the good graces. Her pink Thursday might have launched online presence, but will she handle the highest office? She has to prove beyond the metropolitan and educated voters. That she stands for the ordinary people too. Sometimes she has a tendency to act a bit arrogant, because of her stature. This needs to be resolved in the upcoming campaign. Her running mate is Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan who runs for VP. Kiko has been called one of the most hard-working senators, but he has to prove that on the campaign trail now.

Then you have Ferdinand “BongBong” Marcos Jr. of the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas. The man who claims his father brought the “golden era” to the Philippines. When people were living under martial law and his family was plundering the nation. A man who is also not celebrating EDSA. So, this man will be a selfish President and not suitable for office. Neither has a good record as a Senator and his one of those dynasties that is self-serving. Not strange, they are the next in line after the dictator. He wants “Bong Go” to be his running mate. In that way it would be “Bong Bong Bong Go”. What a crazy scenario….

The People’s Champ Movement (PCM) is fielding senator Emmanuel “Manny” Dapidran Pacquiao Sr. Manny Pacquiao is the first term Senator and haven’t been an effective lawmaker by any stretch. Only real achievement is to finally retire from the boxing ring. Also, because of standing as a Presidential Candidate he was expelled from PDP-Laban. He is supported by Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III. While Pac-Man shares a ticket with Lito Atienza, the Deputy Speaker of the House. The former mayor of Manila from 1998 to 2007.

The current Manila Mayor of the Aksyon Demokratiko party, Francisco Domagoso “Isko Moreno” is running for the Presidency. He has been the Mayor of the Capital since 2019. The former actor and local councillor have a long way ahead of him. The way his been publicly. He sounds like a meek and soft Duterte. Since he will continue where he left off and not challenge the current day today. He wants to unify the nation, but it’s not a nation in war. So, it seems weird to unify it in peacetime. On his ticket is Dr. Willy Ong, a social media favourite doctor, which sounds like a huge risk. As he has no political background and could be buried quickly. That’s a risk of media savvy Presidential contender.

The final Presidential Candidate and party I will list is Partido para sa Demokratikong Reporma and their candidate Panfilo “Ping” Morena Lacson Sr. He plans to run on the same program as Duterte did in 2016. Ping has been a Senator since 2007 and this is his final opportunity to get promoted. The former PNP Chief and has a road ahead of him. Since he only got about 5% of the votes in 2016. He has a well respected running mate in Vicente Sotto III “Tito”. Tito has served in the Senate for 20 years. Over the years he has passed over 20 laws. The only last thing that he could be criticized for over the years. Is that during this term he tried to lower the age of criminality. Meaning, someone deemed as a child could be guilty and liable for participation in a crime. That is the only thing I feel bad for Tito.

So, we see the parties and their candidates. It is not a strong roost of candidates. There is nobody screaming of elegance or quality. None of these tickets are perfect. Nobody is perfect either, but they are not easy to sell.

Bato-Bong is the most mediocre from the incumbent party. Instead of fielding winning candidates and people who has charisma and charm. It is sending what feels like rejects and only Duterte loyalists. Hoping to continue where Rodrigo left-off. That isn’t a winning formula, but leftovers. Who wants yesterday’s frozen lasagna? When you can order fresh Italian food from the vendor around-the-way?

Final analysis of the tickets:

Robredo-Kiko is the ones with the finesse, but will it be a pay-off? Antonio Trillanes IV would have been more forceful. Trilanes will most likely be re-elected into the Senate after one term out. He could have brought more to the ticket than Kiko. Robredo already have to prove that her term wasn’t wasted and she has to be viable to rural uneducated areas. Will Kiko be able to promote Robredo there? I doubt that, but the liberals got to try.

BongBong wants to go Gung-ho with BongBongBongGo and that’s insane. The son of the late dictator should just enjoy the perks of the plunder and leave the Republic alone. Especially, when the candidate doesn’t want to take responsibility or fix the ramification of what his father did. The Marcos haven’t cared for the Philippines. They have hidden and tried to get away from the pain and suffering they put on the nation. He should retire and chill. Be lucky that he got to live lavish on the thieving of his father. That’s it really. Maybe not send “Emergency Alerts” and try to polish your public persona. Since we know the deal and you cannot polish a turd. A turd is a turd, no matter what do to it.

Pacquiao- Atienza is a gamble. These ones are risking their seats in congress. Pac-Man could have easily gotten re-elected into the Senate. Even when he has little to nothing to show for it. He lost his place in PDP-Laban and the faction of his on the open sea now. That he got a respected and seasoned politician on his side is good. Also having support of Pimentel III is vital here. However, is that enough for lightweight Pacquiao? Well, I doubt that… he got to drop a manifesto, which not only smells blood, but proves his sincerity in the race. It cannot be a half-baked project without any substance. Then he will be a fish out of water.

Isko-Ong is the futuristic and out-of-place candidacy. The Manila mayor have to get such a momentum that the big parties cannot contain it. However, to be able to do that. He needs to hit a nerve, but for now he sounds like someone who just wants to “build build build”. Isko Moreno might look like a fresh face, but is that enough? Really? If so… then there is little merit or proof before you get into the highest office. You know this ticket is risky when they just picked the most popular social media doctor to be his running mate. Not finding someone to bring experience or credentials. No, we pick the man that gotten popular during the pandemic…. It is so soft!

Ping-Tito is the most experienced of the bunch. Ping Lacson would be elected with advanced age just like Duterte. Would the same republic vote for an old head like this again? Tito is a respected VP candidate and has a positive record. Therefore, this candidacy is good, but will it be enough? I still wonder, if these two will able to fight and make a campaign worthwhile? They need to prove their experience and careers. Ping-Tito can show what they have done. However, can these challenge the rest and be viable? That I am not certain of, but in a race of mediocrity, maybe this is enough?

God knows what it will take, I don’t know, but these ladies and gentlemen seems like a mediocre bunch of candidates. Would hope for more… nevertheless that is too much to ask for in 2021. Peace.

Opinion: Early emergency campaigning by “BongBong” Marcos

It is just about that time. The son of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, Ferdinand “BongBong” Marcos Jr. Just as he had proclaimed and held his speech as a Presidential Candidate. The team and whoever associated with him. Has allegedly sent out “Emergency SMS” in favour of his candidacy.

There will now be an investigation between several of government entities. As these sort of SMS’s or texts are supposed to sent out, if there is a typhoon in a area or dangerous amounts of rain. It is an emergency message or alert for a reason.

That’s why even the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) have come out saying this is not the way or usage of the emergency message/alerts, and they were not sending these ones out. The National Telecommunication Commission which had to come out, and they are saying that these messages are not from the NDRRMC. Since, in this regard, they got no “request” to do so. The NTC have even stated that the texts was not from their network, but from portable cell-sites.

We can clearly wonder, which Telecommunication Company wanted to do this and who would earn political capital on this. These emergency text is only showing fault-lines and misrepresentation of what they are supposed to be.

Let’s be clear BongBong is not an upcoming typhoon, heavy rain-fall, earthquake or a volcano alert. It is not like created hazardous eruption from a volcano. No, he just held a speech for up-coming campaign. He used a means, which is to save people from natural disaster. We don’t know if he defines himself as a natural disaster, but that’s all up to him.

It is not right for a candidate to take “hostage” or misuse “government systems” to finesse the system. Campaigning where you shouldn’t campaign and sending the wrong message. An “Emergency Alert” should be taken serious and not as a joke. That is why the NDRRMC and NTC has procedures and protocol before sending these out. Since, they have to make sure the public gets verified messages and correct information at the right time.

This is why we need to know more, just like Kontra Daya in their press statement today: “It is not enough for COMELEC to say that it is ill-advised and for NDRRMC to deny sending the emergency alert. There is a need to know who is responsible, what kind of technology was used and why this is available to certain nefarious characters” (…) “National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) Deputy Commissioner Edgardo Cabarios was quoted as saying that it is illegal to buy and sell portable cell sites that can be used in issuing alerts. As the NTC initiates its own investigation, both the buyers and sellers of the technology used by the Marcos camp should be publicly identified and formally charged” (Konta Daya – ‘Investigate the electronic hijacking, castigate the opportunistic grandstanding’ 07.10.2021).

So, it is possible that BBM Team did this without the authorities and with portable cell sites, which is also illegal. It is not only the misinformation and misuse of the airwaves. The associates could easily come with recites and prove their innocence. However, expect the investigators have to inquiry and possibly subpoena documents from them. Since, if they are implicated or participated in this. The authorities have to do this properly to prove their guilt.

We know the BBM is the only one earning on the emergency text and it happened right after he launched his candidacy for President. Hopefully, we get to know the full extent of the matter, but this is a bad precedent and so early in the 2022 elections. No one should ever be allowed for personal gains to use emergency texts/messages. That is a national safeguard and not publicity channel. This has to be addressed and not just fizzle out. Peace.

Opinion: “BongBong” will bring back bad memories

I cannot comment on whether it still needs to be celebrated because I was on the other side of the barricade during EDSA. What I can say is that many projects set to be completed in 1986 were disrupted”BongBong” Marcos (2016)

The son of dynasty and dictator, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. have been endorsed by several parties of late. These parties are Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL), Kalinga Party (KP), Labor Party of the Philippines (LPP) and Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP). KBL is the party of the father. So, it is fitting that the former Senator was endorsed there and elsewhere.

Yes, “BongBong” Marcos has been a “public servant” for years. He has been an elected official. However, his a relic from a plundering dynasty and a dictatorial part of the history of the Philippines. The BBM and his allies will sell the stories differently. They might even try to sell him as different than his father. Which is natural, since the ones who fought his father are now seen as heroes.

The Marcos haven’t delivered back the billions of pesos it stole. The Marcos has massive wealth and unaccounted profits on it. The plunder cases and what they have in Swiss bank-accounts are still not totally known. The family have fought to keep this and their ill-gotten gains. Still, as “public servants” the first thing they should do was to return this. However, the greed runs deep and they see it as their own.

The Marcos and the reign of the father created more poverty for the Republic. While his family have gotten more wealthy. That is why BBM owns several of businesses and has huge liabilities. That isn’t because of his business-savvy ways, but in the manner of which this family got their gains.

I don’t believe “BongBong” will do any good. He was born with a silver-spoon and is a self-serving individual. The ones believing in him is naive. Marcos will use this office for himself and his closest kin. I wouldn’t be shocked with more plunder and porkies. There would be a huge pay-off and securing the bank. While using force and neglecting what is needed.

I can’t believe these parties is willing to field the son of the dictator. A man who bashed in the wealth and haven’t done his due diligence to clean the closet of all the illegal gains earned by his father. That just shows the lack of moral ambiguity. That is the reality here.

Those parties clearly see a viable case with him. The BBM brand and his space is good enough. Nevertheless, this man will most likely not bring anything good. I have a hard time taking his candidacy seriously. By all means, if you want someone who plunders and keeps grinding for the dynasties. Than you have your man and your candidate.

BongBong” Marcos isn’t giving you friendly vibes. His the elite and a man of wealth, because of what his family did. This is why there should an easy way to stay away from these parties and his candidacy. Since there should be other prospects who are more sincere and real.

BBM have participated and written legislation in all his time in office. That should reflect his character and will. However, it has been more for display and cheap politicking, which is what some candidates do to look good. I don’t see anything that he shouldn’t have supported or not done in his time. He has supported several of resolutions and bills. While we can wonder about their affects to this day. Because, he never took accountability and being transparent with the legacy of his father. Except that he used his time in office to secure a state burial and grave for his father. That is noble as a son, but he was a dictator. Did you expect people to love him after all the years of martial law and plundering?

This is why BBM isn’t welcomed and ready for this. The parties might think it is “water under the bridge” and still endorses him. Heck, the KBL is bound by the legacy of his father. While “BongBong” should maybe save himself and it will reignite the stories of the past.

BBM clearly needs to defend the plunder and the legacy of his father. That’s because he is the son and lived lavishly because of that. This is why he will not have this easy and it will be in-disregard of many more.

I cannot see him as viable man. I rather support Duterte’s side-kick than whatever BBM will promise. It will at least be honest and truthful in the manner, which they are governing. Instead of promising change, but never acting up what they did in the past. That’s what the Marcos family seems to have forgotten and they are not taking into account the sentiment, which the popular uprising brought his reign down.

That’s why EDSA matters still and will not be forgotten. Peace.
