Everyone is crazy hating on PGMA right now and they evidently all can’t wait for her to step down. I’m not saying I’m pro GMA, but have these people thought about what will happen when she finally does?
I feel that it is a must to note that she is by far, one of the most hardworking and focused (whether on good or bad deeds, who knows?) leaders I have ever seen. Imagine all the protests and threats she has to deal with on a daily basis. None of them serve as detrimental to the fulfillment of her duties. Whenever there are rallies here and there, she’s out somewhere working. Well, of course, she is after all the president, whoever said anything about that job being a piece of cake? However, anyone sane would know it takes a lot to get by when the whole country, including large sectors of the government, despise you. For what it is worth, I admire her character.
We now have 13 presidentiables. I think that statement in itself is a reflection of how the government system of the Philippines is troubled, to say the least. I find it difficult not to wonder, once this remarkable woman steps down together with her abuse of power and alleged greed, who will replace her? Is it really a matter of replacing the present corrupt leader or acknowledging that our system is flawed and can safely be deemed as capable of depraving our officials? what makes us so sure that we won’t find ourselves in the same situation again in a few years time? Let’s face it, this is not the first time, not even the second. Does this say something about our leaders or about us?
