FROM THE BARREL OF MY PEN
By Gonzalo “Jun” Policarpio


“LET THE DIE BE CAST!”


On this coming May 10th presidential election, the Filipino people will choose their own fate in the next six years and nobody knows what is ahead, except ONE WHO KNOWS ALL. Maybe heaven or maybe hell on earth. For it all depends on who will be entrusted with all the powers delegated by the Constitution- political, economic, social, military, and other attendant authorities - the next president of the Philippines.

I think God allowed Marcos to rule the Filipino people with a dictatorial hand in order to let the people experience life with less freedom.

I think God allowed Cory Aquino to rule with a motherly hand in order to let the people experience life with more freedom.

I think God allowed Ramos to rule with a military hand in order to let the people experience life guided by some sort of discipline.

I think God allowed Estrada to rule with a gambler’s hand in order to let the people experience life with a risky mind.

I think God allowed Macapagal-Arroyo to rule without the people’s mandate in order to let the people experience life under pretense.

Now who do you think God will allow to rule?

An innocent but honest young man catapulted to popularity by virtue of being the son of extraordinarily good parents?

A mega-rich businessman noted for shrewdness and wheeling-dealing?

A former gambler-president who was convicted of plunder?

Or a candidate nobody expects to win?

Let the die be cast!
