The President Of The Philippines toils for the common good. Philippine laws have mandated him/her as head of state and government of the Republic of the Philippines.
Here’s the Seal of the President…
The nuances of Philippine history regarding the office of the President of the Philippines have remained wanting to this day. Two questions stand out…
Please read on…
Some historians deemed Andres Bonifacio the de facto first President of the Philippines. Others didn’t, they who told government... and government believed.
Andres Bonifacio, 1863-1897
Two other revolutionary leaders, Macario Sacay and Miguel Malvar, possessed the same President of the Philippines qualitative honors as Bonifacio.
Three genuine patriots did not make the cut… because the arbiters
decided otherwise. Who would judge the arbiters? Were they right? Pardon me –
these questions could haunt or even hang judges.
The current Philippine multi-party political landscape is embarrassing. Political parties have no ideology and clear platform of government. Turncoats proliferate.
Politicians forget the meaning of the common good… corruption impaired many of them. The usual results? A chaotic party system which, among others, produces a minority president.
Since a minority Philippine President does not enjoy psychological support of
majority of the voters, the national psyche is misaligned.
In one way or another, each Philippine President has succeeded for the country during his/her term. Let’s see…
His insistence for the Americans to commit into paper the promise of independence is a national pride.
Aguinaldo (Term: 1898-1901)
He asserted a Philippines run like hell by Filipinos rather than a Philippines run by Americans.
He managed to keep alive and resolute the Filipino national identity during WWII.
Integrity and honesty in office was his greatest legacy to the Filipinos.
He established a government credit institution to rescue the country from bankruptcy as a result of the heavy damage in WWII.
He rejected foreign influences in government affairs and restored peace and order during his term.
He asserted that the poor should have more in law. He quelled the Huk rebellion during his time.
His ‘Filipino First’ policy in the enjoyment of the national patrimony is unsurpassed to this day.
He changed the National Independence Day from July 4 to June 12.
His strategy to develop the country’s physical economy is remains unsurpassed. He served the longest as President of the Philippines.
Marcos, Sr. (Term: 1965-1986)
Her honesty and integrity in office provided an example for succeeding Presidencies and all levels of government to emulate.
He institutionalized the concept of people empowerment in handling government affairs.
He rejected sovereign guarantees for private projects predominantly funded from outside.
Her ‘One Town One Product’ (OTOP) strategy is her invaluable legacy to the country.
He commits to eliminate corruption in government. He is the first bachelor Philippine President.
Aquino III (Term: 2010-Present)
I have a personal view that a weak-bound Philippine President will continue to ride into the future if…
However, out there in
2040, when 4 presidential terms shall have eradicated the foregoing, a bright
Philippines is indeed worth hoping for.
The President Of The Philippines with all the impressions of history deserves acclaim for her/his headship of the nation and government.
In spite of negative political realities, the Philippine President must proceed with his mandate.
It's inspiring to see a Philippine President who goes beyond political coalitions… beyond the stigma of the multi-party system and political dynasty.
Setting politics aside, here's an invitation.
Come SEE, LIVE OR INVEST IN THE PHILIPPINES.
