By Gonzalo “Jun” Policarpio


Though I once wrote about a scenario where a popular opposition leader would go the way of Ninoy Aquino to face martyrdom and force the ouster of a tyrant, it remains to be seen if Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay would step up to the plate in the ensuing events following his “suspension” by an Arroyo crony. If he does, then the Filipino people would react the same way as they did in 1987. History indeed repeats itself.


A few more weeks and then we’ll know which party will control the U.S. House of Representatives. On November 7th, Election Day in the United States, all 435 Congressional seats shall be declared vacant and the winners will fill the seats next year. I urge every American voter to vote his or her conscience and get rid of the ultra-conservative racists in Congress.


It’s about time for the Filipino people to wake up from its lethargic state and smell the coffee of reality. I was told by somebody that tyrants like Marcos and Arroyo capitalized on the stupidity and foolishness of the poor whose main concern is to survive. With billions of stolen money to buy power, such megalomaniacs were able to able to hold on to power despite their corrupt ways. And the poor will just smile off their problems waiting for some crumbs to fall from the dirty coffers of Malacanang. What do you think is the solution to this cancerous condition prevailing in the Philippines today?
Is there a doctor in the house?


The political opposition in the Philippines needs help very badly now that the de facto president uses political, judicial, and police-military forces to crush them. But they are not united having leaders fighting for conflicting agenda. Unless they come up with a true Filipino leader whose concern is the welfare of the Filipino people, Gloria and her henchmen will rule the Philippines indefinitely until sickness stops them all.
