    1. The crooked politicians who steal the peoples money to enriched themselves has been going on since the time that the Philippines got her independence from the USA. It is already a cancer that will never cease as long as the Philippines is a democratic country. So many Filipino people say that if you want to be rich, go into politics!!!!!!!!!!!!

        B.Q., I agree with you 100%. Also, you make the point that the Filipino people have been crooked since they got their independence from the USA. My question to you is: What happened since we got our independence from the USA, did we some how forget how well and honestly the country was governed during what my mother called, “American times?” Did we forget those times in lieu of the “Japanese times” which had each Filipino think first of is own survival before all else? And would our country be better if the Americans stayed longer after WWII for a time until we had returned to those pre-WWII times and we relearned our sense of honesty and civic discipline which my mother said were hallmarks of those older, better times? I sometimes think that if the Americans stayed a bit, instead of going immediately to rebuild Tokyo and Japan, and stayed to rebuild Manila, then our nation would be in better shape with regards to basic political integrity. But that may be only wishful thinking. We have what we have. And only the Filipino people can now pull themselves out of the dreadful, self-perpetuating circle of corrupt political and social systems we have created for ourselves. Who will save us now, if the man who ran and won the presidency on a platform of corruption reform fails to reform? God help us…

    2. Some of my community group pals have expressed different opinions on Naked Run. 50% has viewed it as cowardice for hiding their faces instead of their private parts. The other half has expressed that it’s okay, as long as they have emphasized in their protest that these govt crooks are very coward to come out in the open, to surrender and resign forever. The Filipino people cannot wait for a new governance. I am for you, guys. You have shown thru your naked protest the absolute in freedom of expression and revolution.
