ARE you wondering about the title of my column? It took three foreign political commentators to wake me up. This is what they said - The problem in your country is this, "The Filipinos do not love their country." After analyzing all the turbulence happening in our country that it merited this distinction from a reputable international survey service, I realize this. The number 1 most troubled or least peaceful country is North Korea. The number 2 is the Philippines.
No wonder there had not been any peaceful situations here since The election of 2016. Too much political bickerings between the Liberals, the losing party, and the PDP-Laban the party which adopted the winning candidate, President Rodrigo Duterte were the order of the days pestering us, impartial and peaceful citizens. Mud-slinging, character assassination, transfer of blames, insincerity, immoral utterances so unbecoming of genuine statesmen were in full swing. We are tired of this.
We rode with the tide. We permitted our country to be disrespected by these politicians. Down to the gutter. The President vowed to serve God and his country to prosper. This is very good except for the ways or means by which he wants to do this. And nobody can disagree or he vents his maverick impulsive manner on these persons. Some netizens say he has the makings of a dictator. The most demeaning is that he is a psychopath.
Sixteen million Filipinos voted for him in the last elections, that leaves some 105 million Filipinos did not vote for him and this is the majority. These Filipinos are the ones l am calling forth to be awaken, stand up, and show your love for our country. Stop taking part in useless netizens' bickerings. They complain about how our country is being ruled.
Then let us have the antidote through intelligent moral code of conduct, decency and democratic form of governance as encoded in our sworn in Constitution. Let us have a bloodless revolution against all the omens of the present day programs as advocated by the President. The overt alliances with China and Russia and the non attention given the international bodies like the UN, EU, UK. Cutting all alliances or treaties with USA because of the Big Brother; Small Brother demeaning relations which Filipinos tolerated and I regret this. Let us stand tall and have our domain respected in our own country. The President had practically sold our country to China and Russia. With China the huge amounts of aids promised turned out to be loans payable by the Filipinos for generations yet to come. The domination over the ownership of The West Philippines Seas which was decided by the UNCLOS as legally ours. The president had agreed hook, line, and sinker with these alliances favoring China and our country as a loser.
With Russia, his whole group of negotiators and his Family were given all their expenses during his official visit. This is a very good investment with his hidden agenda of what President Putin will ask in return. The Philippines is getting all our arms for warfare from Russia at their terms of payment. USA was already stricken out of the list of our warfare arms supplier.
In many negotiations of the president, our country it seems, is just a commodity. May we remind that our country is not for sale. So many countries are interested in the Philippines because it is rich in natural resources as to the mines with its metallic and non-mettellic resources as chromium, gold, fuel oils. It has its rich flora and fauna both on the land and the seas. Military wise it is the gateway to the west from the eastern seas. Remember the World War 11 event. I like this story - then President Romulo of the UN complained why he could not see the Philippines in the world map of the UN Logo. Sir, it will only be a dot.
Then put the dot. See. May I repeat my appeal - Each and every Filipino Love Your Country first and foremost and you will be assured of a peaceful and prosperous future. The Philippines is the Pearl of the Orient Seas.
