Kailangan natin ng matibay na tao.

 

One who will forge the Filipino people into a global powerhouse. One SIMILAR to Ferdinand Marcos.

 

For Marcos critics, let me tell you that during his reign...

 

The Philippines...

 

...was the Tiger economy of Asia...

 

...was the first Asian country to have its own airline

 

...was the land where other Asians worked as domestic helpers (now it's the other way around)

 

...was the land where those who needed it got free food, free medicine, free/very affordable education

 

...was the country with the best public school system (just look at our moms and dads of today - smart people, hardworking, PRODUCTIVE - the products of a disciplined society)

 

...was "tough" enough to start a nuclear project

 

But he was a flawed leader. We need a new kind of leader who will not let personal interests - that of his or his friends - come before national interests.

 

Remember Augustus Caesar, who ruled Rome in ages past. He was a one-man ruler - but he didn't let it get to his head. He kept behind the scenes. And he guided Rome into its Golden Age.

 

Remember Joseph Stalin, the leader of Russia - he made Russia powerful.

 

Remember Adlof Hitler - not the most popular leader, but arguably the best in modern military history. Had he heeded his generals' advice on taking on Russia, he would've won the war.

 

We need them now.

I tend to disagree, never again to the likes of Ferdinand Marcos. History will not lie how the Philippines faired poorly during the Marcos Regime. Human rights violation, Nepotism, graft & corruption reigned during that time.

Was the Arroyo administration much different? I think she did even worse in 9 years than Marcos did in twenty. Correct me if I am wrong, but Marcos was the most productive leader the Philippines had. Based on stone cold historical facts. The negative view of the people is fueled by emotion, not reason.

para sa sunod na halalan ba 'to? personally, gusto ko kamay na bakal, hindi gaya ngayon lahat ginagawang escape ang human rights, nakakasamang isipin na naunahan tayo ng india to manufacture car. madaming magagaling sa atin, magagaling ang bunganga kesa gawa, magaling bumatikos kesa kumilos, madaming pumupuna sa tama at mali. kung hindi kaya ng gobyerno na idisiplina ang bansa, sana ibenta na lang tayo sa ibang bansa.

you know guys, instead of putting the blame to someone and discussing this issue which is already done, we already learned our lessons, we can make things happen if we, within this sulit.com, will start doing something responsible, our community is big enough to make things happen. we don't need anyone far as i know, we just need to unite and do what we can, not the government, to the people..

Sakto. We just need to start an initiative here that will help open people's eyes to the potential that we Filipinos have.

Russia under Joseph Stalin. Massacre was his Gameplay. More of his people suffer from his So called Red tape.

Germany under Adolf Hitler was the first to recover to the Great Depression of the 1930's. But his lunacy took him together with his fatherland to their downfall.

Yes we need strong leaders. Leaders to get us to progress.

You hit the nail on the head.  It is all about the people; all the time in society here I see bribe, theft, people not paying taxes, counterfeiting and violent crime.

 

All the leader can do is encourage the people not to stand for these things.  It's hard to watch, because the potential of the Philippines is unbelievable.  There's no reason why they can't be the next South Korea or Taiwan, even better.

to johnb, you are right about the potential of this country and i really hate it whenever am seeing 'tata' brand cars, india was way behind this country and now they are producing automobiles? i dont think that's because of their governments effort..its because of those engineers who wanted to make a change and did not rely on government support. would you believe that one of the best cash deposit machine is made in the philippines? but not owned by philippines..owned by fujitsu japan. the way i observe things here is; we kept on banging these politicians on their heads and ends up sitting on that same spot where we wanted them to leave. these politicians are already immune to big mouths. the reality is us..and if this new president will just keep on ignoring the reality by looking at those progress reports made by his members, then change is impossible..

We need to get our acts together. We have truly talented scientists and engineers. Why don't we go from manufacturing jeepneys and owner-type jeeps and other economy vehicles when we can produce topnotch vehicles to rival other car manufacturers?
