That is the sad story of the Filipino people. We forgive and forget easily. Filipinos keeps making the same mistake over and over. Politicians acts goody two shoes during campaign, makes promises they are not going to keep, some gives money. After the election and they won, they think they are entitled, they will recoup the money they spent campaigning and then some at the expense of the same people they promised to serve. The Filipinos are just taken for a ride on the same merry go round, and we don’t know how to get off. The problem lies with the voters, just because you can write your name or make a mark, does not qualify someone to vote, unfortunately in a democratic society that is guaranteed in the constitution. The lawmakers need to overhaul the voting qualifications and requirements. There ought to be something done about this mess.
Most Filipinos are stupid and that is why the Philippines is a third world country. I am ashamed of my heritage. In America all the successful Asian people are either Japanese, Chinese, Korean or Indian. It is because their culture value higher education. Emphasis on higher education is the only way to go. The sooner the Filipino people and its national government realize that the better.
