Leni Robredo is the WRONG choice for Vice President of the Philippines

Bongbong Marcos being the ‘wrong’ choice for Vice President does not make your preferred candidate the ‘right’ choice. That does not make Rep. Leni Robredo the ‘answer’. She has not demonstrated that she is capable of assuming the mantle of the vice presidency of the Philippines.

I have to speak out against this. This is stupid. This is moronic. This is a clear example of the oversimplification of political discourse. This is one of the reasons why our political and democratic institutions are stunted. People talk about ‘educated voters’ but when the so called ‘educated voters’ subscribe to this kind of thinking what then? What is the difference between ‘educated voters’ and ‘uneducated voters’ when their arguments are anchored on emotions? Hell, I’d wager that those insulted for being ‘uneducated voters’ know more about the REAL Philippines than many of those who proclaim to be ‘educated voters’. The ‘uneducated voters’ are the people who bear the brunt of the often painful consequences of the decisions of the elite. They are the ones who can see, taste, hear, smell, and feel poverty. They are the ones who are most attuned to the pulse, the heartbeat of the Philippines – not those insulated in elite enclaves and especially not those living in the developed world, far away from the REAL Philippines.

Why can’t we muster the will to discuss, in great detail, the issues that truly matter – not the issues that ivory tower academicians enjoy discussing over expensive coffee, but the issues that matter the most to the majority of struggling working class Filipinos?

How is necropolitics the ‘answer’? Why is it that many Filipinos are compelled to vote for people with recently deceased relatives? Do they magically acquire the perceived capacity for governance of their dead relatives? Do they become possessed by the spirit or spirits of their dead relatives? How is perceived ‘sincerity’ the ‘answer’? How could anyone consider ‘good intentions’ enough to constitute the ‘answer’? Will ‘sincerity’ and ‘good intentions’ miraculously bestow upon you a keen appreciation of statecraft and political science? Will these attributes bestow upon you invaluable insights into the political economy?

The vice presidency is not for amateurs. If you were disgusted at Nancy Binay getting a Senate seat, why then are you changing your tune now? Is it because she doesn’t have a ‘respectable’ last name? Is it because she does not look ‘right’ to you? We need people who can put together national-level plans and implement them properly. We cannot afford to waste time while the Vice President learns the ropes of executive national-level governance.

Good intentions’ and ‘sincerity’ are nowhere near sufficient attributes or qualifications for the second highest position in the land. You can’t solve the many ills of our country with ‘good intentions’. You can’t sincerely wish your country out of worsening poverty and deepening inequality.

We need a leader who can chart a clear course of progress, development, and unity. We need people with actual platforms that have actual actionable plans and programs. We need a leader who has extensive experience navigating the complex sociopolitical landscape of the Philippines.

Robredo supported the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) of the Aquino administration despite its unconstitutional provisions and its bilateral – not multilateral, framework. She supported the proposal to increase SSS pensions but flip-flopped the moment Malacanang put forward its opposition to the measure. She even went so far as to claim that Malacanang had a point. She defended the veto of a bill she supported.

We need people who can think, two, three, four, five steps ahead. We need a Vice President who can lead.

  1. what can we do if pnoy is looking for a puppet. the same thing he did to grace he thinks she’s fool enough to be his puppet.

  2. OMG, this woman? OMG, Jesse ‘I was going to send Rico Puno to jail’ Robredo was murdered and now Bong-Bong is going to ride the sympathy wave (as Pnoy did with his mother !) ?

    How ironic is it that the Man whose Father plundered the wealth of the Philipine nation for 20+ years(and whose Mother still openly brags about it) is going to run for office(all while acting as if he is not the benfactor of his Father’s ill-gotten wealth) using the sympathy vote of the wife of the only apparently not corrupt politician in the country in the last 50 years?

    It is beyond vexation, and the transparent audacity of the whole charade is stinking like a 5 year dead mans unburied corpse, to any sane mind.The Filipino must be the most easily conned society on the face of this green earth.

    1. As with all others of the yellow cult and exhibiting the same stunted reading like resident GRP yellowtard Virtual Vigilante, you simply are not making sense.

        1. And? two years, nearly three years on she is still a stupid idiot and bong bong is chilling.

          Take your Yellowtard shit to somewhere else.

    2. BBM isn’t just his father’s son.

      He ACTUALLY managed to draft some real laws, thank you.

      I dread the day that we will have NOT one, but TWO Cory Aquinos leading us further to our doom.

      Fuck those sympathy votes, I’d rather cast mine on leaders with VISION and POLITICAL WILL!!!!

      Is that not TOO MUCH to ask???

      If not, may the gods help us if China takes over this country – if they don’t nuke it to kingdom come

      1. Why would China want to take over the Philippines? Would YOU want to take over a classroom of 100 million petulant schoolchildren all complaining that they’ve lost their lunch money?

        1. China is not after the Philippines; it’s our untapped oil that is sitting in our surrounding waters they want. The Chinese government could care less about our people; it already has billions of peasants working for its cause. It’s the Chinese businessmen from other Asian countries who want to take over our economy by bribing their way into our YellowTard politicians’ pockets to gain economic favors.

    3. You speak of plundered Philippine wealth? How about Marcos
      legacy of great infrastructure, a robust agrarian reforms and etc.
      What has the succeeding leadership done to surpass those.
      The Filipino people are badly clamoring for change because
      they realized the biggest mistake of past choices. What do
      you think of a Congress neophyte like Mrs Robredo can do?

      1. Those who insist that Marcos plundered the country are just too lazy to find the facts themselves and just wait for the yellow people to tell them what happened. I pity the Philippines.

        1. You are the lazy one.. Are you stupid.. Once Marcos stepped down, the Philippines debt was insane and until this very day we are still paying for it. Also, do you know how much BBM’s declared SALN is? It’s more than 400 million and when asked by the supreme court how his SALN reached that high, he was not able to even explain himself.. You are the one who is too lazy to find facts. Watch the news and read multiple documents and documentaries so your brain will have something inside of it. Stop being lazy.

        2. I was once a brained wash kid during the So called EDSA Revolution. Always thought that FEM stole a lot from our country. But thru the help of internet I was able to do a research and see the Truth behind the lies! And there are evidences that proves FEM is Innocent / NOT guilty with the charges of Plunder! So if not LAZY! Only a will believe that the Marcoses stole from the Country.
          If their looking for any evidence of Ill gotten Wealth, Plunder & Corruption. There is no need to go far back in time for evidences! Even a Lazy moron can understand this! 170 Billions of Yolanda Funds!

        3. Speak that to yourself hurricane katrina who relies too much on what the yellow media tells you because you always treat them as your gospel truths! Yeah our country had a huge debt after marcos left but what about noybita’s in which not only it’s far more huge but they were never used on any decent projects or being bribed for his yellow army? Hell, what about nobita’s trillion peso dap? You’re focusing too much on marcos so here’s a balance for you then failipino!

    4. Hahah are you sure with your allegations Madame? Plunder, eh? So what do you call the yellow ones, who called out to many filipinos for change? Isnt it that while the society is busy giving them praises, they were also busy robbing everything they can, while they can and while they are in power. They are afraid that if a marcos wins, every lie they made will be revealed. I suggest, you need to do some researching, a deeper one. History books are corrupted and so is the mind of the people who believe their cult. What a shame…

      1. Are you stupid.. Once Marcos stepped down, the Philippines debt was insane and until this very day we are still paying for it. Also, do you know how much BBM’s declared SALN is? It’s more than 400 million and when asked by the supreme court how his SALN reached that high, he was not able to even explain himself.. You are the one who is too lazy to find facts. Watch the news and read multiple documents and documentaries so your brain will have something inside of it.

        1. And once marcos stepped down, failipinos like you are very hungry for revenge because that’s what cory aquino taught you. BBM has that huge SALN? Prove it to the court then! But even if the marcoses are already not guilty from the countless cases they faced, you vindictive little kids are still insisting that they are indeed thieves. You’re not enforcing justice. You’re only enforcing blame games just like what noybita always do every time our country faces an issue. You call us lazy? We call you drama queens.

        2. FEM left us with $28B debt with so many infrastructures (search please ). Cory Aquino left us $60B (less $28B debt from marcos) and ZERO infrastructures in 6 years. Dont tell me Philippines paid 50-80% of interest??

          I believed no one can prove that they stole wealth.

        3. What’s your problem? Filipinos don’t care how much BBM or the Marcoses have, as long as they get things done to improve the lives of ordinary citizens. Did any of the (supposed) poorer politicians afford decent lives for the poor? Let’s get real.

    5. I bet you’re another of those martial law “victims” who took away your so-called “freedom” when in fact you only cause nothing but trouble.
      Plundered the wealth? Where is your proof then when the court already said that there is nothing? There are lots of issues our country is facing that needs to be fixed and yet you drama queens still focus on martial law alone? What will you drama queens gonna achieve from having that so-called “justice” of yours then? NOTHING! You’ll just gonna continue your lawbreaking mindset thanks to your democrazy you whore!

    6. You are speaking as if you have a concrete proof to back up your allegations. Plundered the wealth of the Philippines? After President Marcos, are opposition leaders who became President, that includes Cory and Noynoy. They however were not able to prove anything. Including the assassination of Ninoy being blamed on Pres. Marcos. All are mere allegations. So you better stop talking about something that you cannot prove.

      1. None ever made sense except this loyalist it is a grand sense of stupidity. Marcoses are still the best family affair of thievery that deserves to be in Guiness WR.

        1. And when did the Guiness WR become a standard of your political achievements? Still, you are a stupid idiot who loves to circlejerk that argument of yours with your own brand of hearsay and LOL Evil Marcos.

          Source for the record or what you’re spouting is HEARSAY, idiot.

    7. Plundered what? Say who? You?.
      Your boss might be hanged instead… For the biggest plunder ever in Phil history. Watch heads roll once his “manok” fail on upcoming election.

    8. Even if Bong Bong gained from the ill-gotten wealth of his father, it still doesn’t mean people should scrutinize him for his fathers sins. Look at his hometown, its progressive. And also he passed laws that actually helped the people. I don’t understand why people still link him to martial law. He was young when his father declared it. Its the Aquino’s who are pinning it and programming it to the people.

      And now we have Leni, who is clearly just a puppet of the “Daang Matuwid”. As the article said, she was into increasing the SSS but backed-out when Noynoy declared the Vito. Is that what you think a VP should be? A person with no conviction to correct and fight for what she thinks is right?

      1. He’s 15 when Martial law was declared. When Marcos was ousted, he’s 29 and he served as governor of Ilocos Norte from 1983-1986.

        1. Yes I know that, but when Martial law was declared he was 15. What is his knowledge why his father did that at that age?

          Plus, even after martial law and the Aquino’s took over, Ilocos Norte is on of the progressive cities of our country and the people love them for what Bong Bong did after Edsa.

          You can’t deny that there are a lot of things that he did for the country. Unlike Leni who is just “continuing” a failed administration.

        2. You obviously dont read documents or documentaries.. Even when BBM was a teenager, he himself ordered killings and had the people he couldnt get along with beaten up. + It may be his father who stole during martial law but it is his fault that he kept all that wealth that when asked by the supreme court on why his declared SALN reached reached more than 400 M, he couldnt even explain why.. WAKE UP

        3. @Katrina,

          Sure you can say the Marcoses did this and that but not proving anything and showing crime without punishment only proved the kind of incompetent government we have post-EDSA because old crimes wasn’t resolve but just persist. Do you expect this present and future generation to follow that kind of response towards real crime and corruption? Just pure accusations and blame game? Then it’s better to call our government a gossip democracy instead of real democracy.

        4. Proof that our country is indeed a democrazy thanks to this whore named hurricane katrina who done nothing but abuse her freedom.

    9. We are not as u think because we know the reality of the past that this people apprehend the new generation to know that the former dictator ferdinand marcos make the philippines great during his term and the bogus edsa revolution make the life of the filipino very hard until today

  3. First they knocked off her husband. Then, they have her running for office. Only in the Failippines, where conspiracies are a normal part of life.

    1. Yeah. You’d have to be a total idiot to not be suspicious at least of both Abnoy and Mar having to do something about her husband’s death. Either she’s incredibly naive or an idiot.

  4. Leny is qualified to be the VP. She has experience in public service, is well educated and is a member of the bar. She is down to earth and is non-elitist. Her highest public service position is as a district representative.

    1. If she has the qualifications, then there is no need for her to make malicious allegations against her rival candidates just so to get the nod of the voters. But obviously, she has nothing that will qualify her even to run for V.P.

      1. If BBM was qualified, then he wouldnt have to make malicious allegations against his rival as well.. dont be one sided

        1. Unfortunately, Bongbong’s allegations may be true.

          It was reported that there are zero votes for other candidates aside from the Liberal Party. And that is from Basilan. I have relatives there and my cousin confirmed it.

        2. And if the marcoses are indeed not guilty, then you martial law crybabies need to stop being malicious and vindictive. Stop being a drama queen whore!

        3. Guyfrommin you said it bongbong’s allegations MAY be true. In tagalog baka Tama. So hindi ka sure.

    2. She has clearly no qualifications. She ran for congress once her late husband died in the accident. Its just Cory Aquino all over again. If her husband didn’t die do you think she will run for congress, much so for the VP?

      Also, some say that her husband was killed by the LP itself to put Mar Roxas in the DILG position. And now they are using her as a pawn to get the VP spot.

      Enough with the Aquino’s, they ruled the Philippines twice yet nothing good happened, the country just got sh*ttier

  5. president Ferdinand Marcos was so rich before entering politics….the nazi and the japanese looted the golds throughout Asia and Europe….and president Ferdinand Marcos was the finder and the keeper…Apo marcos CLEARLY did not stole the marcos gold as it is known today…besides it is not a Philippine property and it is not came from Philippine treasury either or central bank of the Philippines!. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT LENI ROBREDO?. Bakit di mo tanungin ang Conjuanco-aquino wealth kung saan din galing yan….. tapos haharap ka sa Negosyo debatefor Vice president pero martial law ang pinaglalaban mo… HINDI PA DAPAT KUNG ANONG ANG PLANO MO PARA MATULONGAN ANG MAMAYANG NG HIHIRAP! after the debate sorry your style is still old style na sinusuka na namin WE NEED CHANGE!

      1. Uhhh they’ve been tried and the Marcos’ are cleared of all charges in racketeering and fraud which was an ongoing case for four years.

        The Aquinos have been seated AT THE HIGHEST power in the Philippines and you don’t see them exhausting all their resources on finding out the late Ninoy Aquino’s killer and yet even after 40 years, investigations against the Marcoes are still going going strong which is mostly under the Aquino’s instruction. Hmmm… Makes you wonder because if that was me, I would be prioritizing and bring my father’s/spouse’s killer to justice.

        1. To all the people who believed that Marcos was the one who killed Ninoy. One person who better testify the event is a close bodyguard of Ninoy Aquino during that time. he is Mr. Santos of tarlac. He testifies in the U,S, court but not published here in our country. he will tell you about the story of this man Ninoy.

        2. Indeed @NIKKObwoy. The yellow idiots has lead this country for so many years but yet, can’t even give justice for his father’s/her husband’s assassination and still they have the ability to manipulate and control many things they wish to control.

    1. Leni hides the fact that her father, the late Judge Antonio Gerona, was appointed municipal judge in 1980, by then president Ferdinand E. Marcos. He was a Marcos and martial law supporter, by reason of his closeness to his classmate Former Trade Minister Luis R. Villafuerte, who was also the nino bonito of Imelda Marcos. Leni’s family had a good life during the martial law years. They were beneficiaries of martial law. If I were Leni, I’d stop my criticisms of martial law and Bongbong, and just say thank you instead.

      1. True, and she has the descency to make maliscious allegations against BBM? Where in fact they are the benificiary during martial law…

  6. It was said that there were courts that cleared the allegations thrown to Marcoses. Just wondering if those courts were really for justice.. Do you really trust those judges or justices? You know how bad the justice system is and was!

    1. Those were international trials so they are trusted, don’t heed with what just you heard from LOCAL media/yellow cult, you better do your personal research google/youtube.

    2. What’s the matter failipino? Are you being above the law and you accuse those international judges as incompetent that you think that the marcoses paid them for the latter’s not guilty verdict?

  7. Mrs. Robredo, is simply lacking the good Track Records in the government service. All she did is to follow Mar Roxas and Aquino. She is new in politics. What House Bill, did she passed, on her term in office? What good did she do, for her constituents, and for the country, as a whole?

    If she is a supporter of the BBL Law. I am against her. We Must not vote for her for Vice President. She will be another, Cory Aquino, the clueless housewife, who became a politician.

    We should discard Necropolitics. Voting someone, because their: mother, father, husband, etc…died, is the most Stupid thing , we do…

    1. i saw the vote stats. Leni got 1M+ from Bicol (hometown) / western visayas and south while BBM only got 100k+ in theae regions.

    2. how is BBm smarter.. he couldnt even graduate in oxford thats why he only got a special diploma because of his incompetence.. search it up fool

      1. Yeah right and that makes Mark Zuckerberg and Sir Richard Branson incompetent because they never graduated from their university even if they have their successful company? You just finished your college only to make yourself look like a genius when in fact you learn only by being a drama queen, do you whore?

  8. according to mareng wennie, among her 3 former economics students (bbm, chiz, leni) bbm is the “bobo” and leni graduated the 4 yr economics course at UP and finished law and passed the bar and worked free for the poor through an ngo and also with PAO…and should been a judge now if not “forced” by her constituents to run in her district to defeat a century-entrenched political dynasty in Bicol…in academic and intellect sphere, she is as qualified if not better than other vp candidates…the vp post is a spare tire anyway and it’s the presidency that really counts, however, by experience voting a prez and vp from different political party or persuasion is bad for our country as what vp binay did was to campaign for the last 5 years while in the cabinet and enjoy the perks as well at the same time his party was busy bashing the administration’s programs and when binay did not get the most sought endorsement by PNoy exited the cabinet and lambasted the gov’t he was once part of…so vote for Leni and Mar…by the way Leni performed better in the Go Negosyo and rebutted effectively bbm’s justification of his father’s declaration of martial law of which my husband (now 61 years old) was once a high school student activist in the 70s…and “educated me about the facts or history of martial law period.

    1. TROLL.

      Mareng Weener (Winnie Monsod) is also a Yellowtard so your efforts are futile.

      Set your priorities for once, Yellow Whore. 😀

    2. according to mareng wennie…

      You should have stopped right there. All your subsequent statements after that opener were a total waste of your time and effort.

    3. You didn’t know that Leni’s father, may his soul rest in peace, was appointed municipal judge in 1980, by then Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos? They were beneficiaries of martial law. Ingrate!

    4. Wennie Monsod? sino ba siya? martial law ba? napanood mo yung video na ready na ang militar para atakihin ang mga ng rarally sa edsa pero hndi niya pinayagang mangyari!? mang gagamit lng kasi tong mga Aquino e.. kya ganito ang nang yari.. sawapang sa kapangyarihan… Diyos ko po.. pagpipilitan ninyo pa yang Aquino n yan… Bata pa ako hndi ko naranasan yang ki FEM.. pero ang naranasan ko Gobyernong Aquino(INUTIL) sawang sawa na ako sa systema ng gobyernong to… Gobyernong Piggery ng mga corrupt na Politiko!!

    5. Winnie Monsod is an academician who cannot practice her economics to make her rich reason she teach . And had hold a government position and consultancy I guess.

      Whereas if Bong Bong Marcos is bobo ( borrowed from you ) academically . But I think Ms. Monsod had made a great job. For if you will just research all the investments the young Marcos had entered personally and for public during his governatorial post.

      I think he is not bobo on economics . Because he had make it happen what Winnie Monsod had taught him.

    6. I am not aware that Bongbong Marcos attended UP and studied economics under Winnie Monsod. He did attend the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania for a while. Did Winnie Monsod also teach economics there? It is, after all, UP also.

  9. @Teresita Clareza:

    Your YellowTard Propaganda does not work in us, thinking Filipinos. Why does Leni Robredo support the BBL Law? Give me her justification… let us talk about the issues.

  10. The vice president had a bargaining asset, however, that no ordinary person has: He was next in line to the presidency. I saw no chance that he would resign first, then take his chances on trial, conviction, and jail.

  11. VP bet ATTY LENI earned her ECONOMICS degree in 1986. Then went on to finished her LAW degree, after SIX (6) YEARS, in 1992. But she managed to pass her BAR EXAMS and eventually became a LAWYER only in 1997, after FIVE (5) YEARS of REVIEW and SEVERAL FAILED ATTEMPTS. That’s right, ATTY LENI miserably FAILED the BAR exams SEVERAL times!

    And the SAD part is that AFTER 5-YEARS of INTENSIVE REVIEW and SEVERAL FAILED ATTEMPTS at the BAR, she finally PASSED with just a PATHETIC PASSING GRADE!!

    Now, the really FUNNY part is that after ALL her ACADEMIC FAILURES at the BAR EXAMS, she is still NOT AWARE that the MARCOS WEALTH that she keeps on talking about CANNOT be DISCUSSED ANYMORE outside the court because it is ALREADY being heard “IN THE COURT”, and if BONGBONG tries to discuss it in public he will be held liable for contempt, be penalized, and might also lose the civil cases involving their family’s wealth. In legal parlance, that is called the SUB JUDICE RULE or CASE SUB JUDICE.

  12. here comes another dimwit trying to impress us with hyfalutin egotistical diatribes. Please continue to amuse us,

  13. The Aquinos so desperate to have a VP that will block
    Bong Bong Marcos gamble on someone who they think has a magic and easy to sell.

    The winning of Pnoy is much more A than a tsamba but mainly due to the situation during that time. That Pnoy is the best choice for the elite and the Political war lords in the Provinces.

    But this time it is different. Robredo is not the best choice for the interest of the local elites.

    It is a fight between Aquino and Marcos .

    The local warlords now know that they can play with the Marcoses . And the Aquino are losing ground this time.

    And as I see it the ground troops of Robredo are young and lack experience ( mostly on their 20!s) Who had purely relied on past campaign machinery of Malacanang .

    Unlike the generals and lieutenants of Marcos are veterans since the 80’s and 90’s campaigns.

        1. lawyers are liars. Leni is therefore also a liar. Bongbong on the other hand is not a lawyer. People trust non lawyers more because they are not liars. Therefore Leni is a liar, Bongbong is not a liar.

          Do you find yourself wondering where the logic went? Well, it all went away when you stupefied this this comment thread with your comment.

  14. The only reason you’re voting for this bitch is you’re a anti-marcos nothing more nothing less. Remember she signed the pnoy draft BBL. Think about that before voting for this two faced bitch!

  15. “We need a leader who can chart a clear course of progress, development, and unity. We need people with actual platforms that have actual actionable plans and programs. We need a leader who has extensive experience navigating the complex sociopolitical landscape of the Philippines.”

    And BBM has all that? LOL. Get someone else who doesn’t carry any baggage of vindicating all the crimes and thievery of his family once elected. Overall, it doesn’t pay to hire an intelligent worker who is a thief.

    1. Of course he did. And you’re very clueless about Ilocos Norte: when Bongbong Marcos was governor, Ilocos Norte flourished. Ilocos is the province where energy cost is the lowest, thanks to his windmills.. It is the only province that is ISO-9000 approved, and always one that has not encountered a problem with COA. It’s record is squeky clean. Agriculture and Tourism are flourishing, and thus unemployment is under control. It is the only province that is growing its middle class at a good pace.

      Need I say more?

      1. “His windmill” sorry to disappoint you but it was not his. Windmill was privately owned and WB sponsored project. Read your facts. Nag selfie lang sa kanya na. Credit grabber.

        1. Sorry to disappoint you but he also allowed a private company to build those windmills… in Ilocos! It was HIS planning all along.

          Set your priorities for once.

    2. Then what do you call his solar and windmill plants at Ilocos Norte in which it has the cheapest electricity in the whole Philippines unlike in your place that you are now crying for it’s expensive cost? Just admit that you’re hating BBM because he’s the son of the “evil” dictator and you believe on the sins of the fathers moron.

      1. “His windmill” sorry to disappoint you but it was not his. Windmill was privately owned and WB sponsored project. Read your facts. Nag selfie lang sa kanya na. Credit grabber.

        Wind mill farm is owned by Northwind Power development corporation, a private corporation.

        1. At yet Bongbong allowed Northwind to build windmills in Ilocos. Anyhow, what did the Aquinos offer in Tarlac anyway?

          FAGGOT. 😛

  16. Hitler built the autobahn, the best roadwork in the world, he revived german auto industry (bmw,benz,porsche etc.) He made the german army world class, he hosted the berlin olympics, he came up with the boy scouts even. But there isnt any German on his right mind that will say Hitler was a great leader, Marcos’ accomplishment pale in comparison to hitler, yet we hear fellow Filipinos say Marcos was a good leader?

    1. Then what do you call macoy’s countless infrastructures he made like the San Juanico Bridge and the NLEX/SLEX that you anti-marcos hypocrites still love using it? Pinangalan mo pa sarili mo kay Tony Stark hindi naman matalino.

  17. Bongbong Marcos being the ‘wrong’ choice for Vice President does not make your preferred candidate the ‘right’ choice. That does not make Rep. Leni Robredo the ‘answer’. She has not demonstrated that she is capable of assuming the mantle of the vice presidency of the Philippines.

    – This is a flawed premise since no clear parameters are presented as to the “mantle of the vice presidency” In view of this, the fact that Rep. Robredo had a vast experience vis-à-vis public service, then she had indeed demonstrated the capability.

    – Apparently, the author is not familiar with Rep. Leni Robredo

    I have to speak out against this. This is stupid. This is moronic. This is a clear example of the oversimplification of political discourse. This is one of the reasons why our political and democratic institutions are stunted. People talk about ‘educated voters’ but when the so called ‘educated voters’ subscribe to this kind of thinking what then? What is the difference between ‘educated voters’ and ‘uneducated voters’ when their arguments are anchored on emotions? Hell, I’d wager that those insulted for being ‘uneducated voters’ know more about the REAL Philippines than many of those who proclaim to be ‘educated voters’. The ‘uneducated voters’ are the people who bear the brunt of the often painful consequences of the decisions of the elite. They are the ones who can see, taste, hear, smell, and feel poverty. They are the ones who are most attuned to the pulse, the heartbeat of the Philippines – not those insulated in elite enclaves and especially not those living in the developed world, far away from the REAL Philippines.

    – Again, the author should at least qualify who are the elites?

    Why can’t we muster the will to discuss, in great detail, the issues that truly matter – not the issues that ivory tower academicians enjoy discussing over expensive coffee, but the issues that matter the most to the majority of struggling working class Filipinos?

    – The main premise of this article is whether or not Rep. Leni Robredo is the right choice.

    How is necropolitics the ‘answer’? Why is it that many Filipinos are compelled to vote for people with recently deceased relatives? Do they magically acquire the perceived capacity for governance of their dead relatives? Do they become possessed by the spirit or spirits of their dead relatives? How is perceived ‘sincerity’ the ‘answer’? How could anyone consider ‘good intentions’ enough to constitute the ‘answer’? Will ‘sincerity’ and ‘good intentions’ miraculously bestow upon you a keen appreciation of statecraft and political science? Will these attributes bestow upon you invaluable insights into the political economy?

    – My vote for Rep. Robredo has nothing to do with her being a widow of Sec. Robredo. Character, public service and untainted reputation are my bases.

    The vice presidency is not for amateurs. If you were disgusted at Nancy Binay getting a Senate seat, why then are you changing your tune now? Is it because she doesn’t have a ‘respectable’ last name? Is it because she does not look ‘right’ to you? We need people who can put together national-level plans and implement them properly. We cannot afford to waste time while the Vice President learns the ropes of executive national-level governance.
    Good intentions’ and ‘sincerity’ are nowhere near sufficient attributes or qualifications for the second highest position in the land. You can’t solve the many ills of our country with ‘good intentions’. You can’t sincerely wish your country out of worsening poverty and deepening inequality.

    – There is a big difference between Nancy Binay and Leni Robredo, that is no brainer. Rep. Leni has good intentions plus public service experience.

    We need a leader who can chart a clear course of progress, development, and unity. We need people with actual platforms that have actual actionable plans and programs. We need a leader who has extensive experience navigating the complex sociopolitical landscape of the Philippines.

    – If that is your point, then what we need indeed is Leni Robredo, hands down.

    Robredo supported the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) of the Aquino administration despite its unconstitutional provisions and its bilateral – not multilateral, framework. She supported the proposal to increase SSS pensions but flip-flopped the moment Malacanang put forward its opposition to the measure. She even went so far as to claim that Malacanang had a point. She defended the veto of a bill she supported.

    – BBL, unconstitutional already? When in fact, Supreme Court has not decide yet in relation to its constitutionality

    – Leni Robredo defended PNoy only in respect to his point of view on why he vetoed the bill increasing the pension.


    We need people who can think, two, three, four, five steps ahead. We need a Vice President who can lead.

    – Again, if this is your premise, then we need indeed Leni Robredo.

  18. This is how stupid some filipino are. US court xonvicted the marcoses with plunder and you saying marcos didnt plunder anything. Thats the reason why marcoses cannot step in any US territories. Cause they can be arrested.

    1. Where is your source then? Oh don’t tell me it’s pcgg. A lot of cases are filed against the marcoses and yet a lot of them are proven not guilty due to lack of evidence.

  19. @Marcial Aguinaldo
    Yeah right, the Marcoses cannot step in any US territories that’s why the whole family retired in Hawaii and BBM even made it to Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, USA. Figures.

  20. “Ang taong hindi marunong tumingin sa pinangalingan ay hindi makakarating sa paroroonan.” How can BBM deny the atrocities done by his father’s regime? Who benefited from his father’s plunder? Di ba sila rin? Nagpapakasasa sila sa kaban ng bayan. Hindi tayo puedeng magbulag-bulagan. BBM even defends his father and said that he brought progress to the Philippines. That’s a LIE. If he used his intelligence for the Filipino people, we would have been a great nation today but he chose to enrich themselves. Paano na ang mga Filipino? Those who rejects history is bound to repeat it. DO NOT VOTE for BBM. We are bound to repeat history if he gets elected. Enough is enough on the MARCOS political dynasty. We will become the laughing stock of the whole world if he gets voted!!

    1. But still they didn’t proved anything? I didn’t vote for Marcos but look at his hometown Ilocos Norte? Its more progressive than other cities. The Aquino’s are saying everything to destroy BongBong but they haven’t proved anything..

      Will you choose your “Daang Matuwid” with clearly NO results. Or the one they persecute for his fathers sins but clearly produced results.

      Yes, we should not forget the past. But being stuck in the past is not good either. Live and learn.

    2. Implying that every single people in the world with the surname “marcos” are connected with macoy. What, you’ll gonna tell this gal that she’s denying about macoy’s atrocities as well: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niurka_Marcos

      “Those who rejects history is bound to repeat it.”
      Yeah right and the aquinos are still your answer then even if they already show nothing to the Filipino people but blame games and credit grabbing? Sino na ang nagbubulag-bulagan ngayon idiot aquino follower? Wala kang pinagkaiba sa mga pinoy ultranationalist na galit pa rin sa mga Amerikano dahil sa ginawa nila sa bansa natin noon bobong pinoy!

  21. It’s really true, if Marcos used his intelligence during his term for 20 years, the Philippines would have been the richest country all over the world. Among the elected presidents for Philippines, Marcos has the biggest amount of wealth that he took from the coffers of the Philippine government because he reigned in power for 20 years. And those time only him and few of his cronies were corrupt.

    1. Very funny because I want to tell you that the people after Marcos took a lot from the coffers 5 TIMES and it lasted for more than 30 YEARS.

      Apparently, you’re clueless.

    2. Our country is already the richest in the whole world until your yellow army friends and commietards destroy it. And marcos has the biggest wealth? That’s nothing compared to your idol’s trillion peso DAP idiot aquino follower.

  22. The Aquino’s are hungry for power. Is it not enough?
    We saw the “Daang Matwuid” failed miserably, yet still you want to continue it? The whole 6 years of the Aquino administration was just full of blaming, sh*tty projects, and personal agenda.

    Enough is enough.

    1. We have had too much of aquino and marcos already. Stop the argument. We want change. We don’t want any of you to rule the nation again.
      Take over duterte!

  23. Bongbong Marcos is a good choice no matter what yellowtards and media says. He is a good one. Do some research and don’t put a shit in your brains. Wake up now!!!

  24. Who will believe on Leni Robredo’s campaign funds? Selling lugaw, ice cream etc. (fund raising) WTF!! 406M in 3-6months!! Hey, dude teach me how.
