Let us consider the reality of today, shall we? As Filipinos, what happened 50 or more years ago is hardly relevant to where you find yourselves today. Do not be blinded by the false imagery of the Aquino led propaganda machinery.
Learn to ask questions, diagnose and analyse answers. Are you the same as your father? Will you make his mistakes? In today’s world what has made the current situation so explosive, is the presence of social media. It is all powerful. And most Filipinos just haven’t grasped it yet.
Senator “Bongbong” Marcos. The son. Can be controlled far better in this day and age than his father could have been during his tenure. Become more active, look to yourself, is it truth you fear, or just fear of the truth?
Politicians are not to be feared. If you make the right noise in terms of protest, they will fear you. Senator Marcos has learned this, as has Miriam Defensor Santiago. And the same can be said of Davao mayor, Rodrigo Duterte. It is why he is game playing. The yellow led mob of so-called “Noytards” and such, have not yet come to accept that 2016 is not 1965 or 1986. They still think their lies, distortions, half truths and fear mongering will work.
It will only work if you, the voter, allow it to do so. Your task is not to say no to any candidate. It is to expose the truth, corner the untruthful, and expose these individuals for who they really are. Demand that Comelec install the required safety features on the machines. And if they will not do so, confront them and every politician who is a candidate with this issue, until they see that unless truth comes first, there will never be peace for any of them.
The People of the Philippines have to learn that fear is paramount in a political system. But not the kind of fear you have become accustomed too. It is should be where politicians fear the public. Not such as you have now, where the public fears the politicians.
