Did he really say that? Duterte is a big enigma to me. Maybe he just dont want to condemn gay people. What he hates the most are the criminals who make the world unsafe and he just want to maintain peace and order so that people can work freely and focus on improving their lives. He wants to stop corruption so that services to the people will be more efficient and he will work on the equal distribution of wealth thru federalism so that the poverty problem will be alleviated if not ended once and for all. Dont trust his words because he is used to swearing a lot. It only shows his heart that he is so fed up with our rotten government. He has a good heart for the people, thats what is important. He has a strong sense of justice and there is truth and wisdom in his words if you will really listen well. He is often misunderstood because he speaks differently,very honest. His ways are radical with fast, effective and long term results but I believe his intentions are quite noble. Of all the choices we have now I think he is the lesser evil. Vote wisely...
You are just winding your comments about Duterte but you really supports Duterte anyway. I do not believed Duterte is a lesser evil, but a great evil. He supported the arm communist, a murderer, adulterer, wife beater, he got only double-standard justice, and even he is corrupt. To enumerate his corruption as follows: city hall thousands of ghost employees, the lost of 2 billions assets of city hall, people's park construction overpricing, city finance auditing perjury overpricing cost of allowance of teachers and police, intelligence funds misused. Did he really hate criminals??? how about the NPA are terrorist extortionist, why he coddled them and even admitted that he paid revo tax to NPA. Can God forgive Duterte for his horrible political acts??

Ok you can now stop condemning Duterte. Nobody is perfect. He will win anyway whether we like it or not. The surveys don't go wrong. Great biblical kings and leaders like David and others were not perfect but they gained God's favor. Regarding the rebels, we don't know his reasons why he deals with them that way. Maybe he is just pacifying them for now so they will not bring havoc to the people but when he becomes president these rebels will have no choice but cooperate in nation building or else he will wipe them all out. You have no evidence in your claims about his corruption and human rights issues. I dont care if he steals a lot of money or he is a killing machine, he is accountable to God. I can't do anything about it. What I care about is if he can improve the lives of Filipinos by fixing the peace and order situation, corruption, red tape and poverty issues etc. Can God forgive him? Well you dont know about his relationship with God, all you did was judge him. What you see outside does not always define what's within.

Why stop condemning Duterte?? Can we cannot condemn his wickedness? Yes no one is perfect, but no excuse to the unrepentant sinner(like Duterte) still continue his wicked ways. David repented, but you cannot see Duterte repented of his wicked ways, and even admitted that he is politically left leaning. His style of ending criminality for him the solution is outright killing without due process, the extra-judicial killing just only pattern from the evil communist doctrine as the only solution by arms and killing. Seems he want to copy the Hitler facism and Mossulini dictatorship,history proves it was a big failure! Are you telling us that Duterte only pacifying the rebels, hmmnn he did not include to mentioned in his flatform that he will the end insurgency problem. He did not considered the NPA extortion as a crime, what a hell! The extra-judicial killings in Davao is a clear human violation, who will be blame, not to blame Duterte? just blame the police of Davao? or you want to blame PNoy or Roxas? His death squad with him for more than 20 years in serving Davao is not really effective bringing peace and order. Why? summary execution of suspected street-level drug pushers and users(small time criminal) does not do away the big time drugs syndicates as the root of drug menace. Drugs and crimes still continue in Davao, police record proves that, Davao City is the 4th highest crime volume in the country. Reason that Duterte top the surveys because most of them did not knew the dark side of Duterte and no one in Davao dares to expose him, he controlled all the media of Davao City and include them in the payroll at the expense of people's money(taxes),for those media men critics to him they were all killed like Jun Pala, Lintuan, Palo and Galope. But latest SWS survey already put him in the 4th place. Duterte is not really anti-corruption, he rather want to free the detained corrupt officials like Revilla, Arroyo, Enrile and Binay. His dirty in the eyes of God and man. A truly spirit-filled christian can discern of his ungodly, that false pastor and self-proclaimed son of God in the person of Quiboloy cannot discern it.

Grace Poe regains the lead as surveys says today, yet I don't rely what the survey says. You said Duterte will win whether we like it or not? Why you said that? Are you sure, he gonna win?

God bless...

hi truth... yes, the believer is allowed to judge righteous judgment, right. For a long time i didnt know abt politicians in the south becauze we had nothing to do with them anyway, so mostly those in the senate, and local (Luzon at least) personalities ang kilala ko. The first time i heard abt duterte was abt his link w./ eliminating bad people in their parts (mindanao) and i cannot really say much on that.
Btw u have not been introduced or welcomed.. so drop by they new members forum.

Duterte? the one who joke about the Bible and God by supporting gays movement... last week Phil. Daily Inquirer reported saying that in the Bible, God should have included gay in creating Adam and Eve.:confused:
Yes, i dont know how he jokes about that... No one mentions the other presidentiables, and who would it really be? Roxas, Poe, Santiago... Btw, i notice not many of oldtimer pinoys on cc do not come in often now. Sana u tell what u think too.

Anyway, there was this old clip from the Manila bulletin i came across entitled A Call to Service. I am trying to retrieve the article but somehow cannot yet, but it mentions Cam. Sur Rep. Leni Robredo, widow of the late DILG chief Jesse Robredo, who now runs for vp. I understand how she can be proud of her late husband, his ethical, effective and empowering leadership. Sec. robredo's tsinelas (slippers) leadership is essentially servant leadership.

In fairness to the other candidates hardly mentioned, let me post some on them when i can. Filipinos at home read and hear enough i suppose, but for those abroad: (Elections are on May 9)
Mar still has fighting chance – Palace | Headlines, News, The Philippine Star | philstar.com

MANILA, Philippines - Despite dismal ratings, Malacañang remained optimistic that the administration’s standard-bearer Manuel Roxas II still has a fighting chance in a tight presidential race due to his steady increase in the surveys.
Undersecretary Manuel Quezon III of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office said voters were getting to know Roxas slowly but surely, like in the last presidential debate and the way he would answer issues involving his candidacy.
Commenting on the latest Pulse Asia survey on presidential candidates released on Friday, Quezon said the results showed it was a statistical tie among Roxas, Vice President Jejomar Binay and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
“So what this tell us is that the race has tightened. Everyone is tied … No one can really be said (to be) in a major lead because the difference with other candidates is close,” Quezon said.

I'm voting for Duterte with prayers that God will use him to clean all the other corrupt politicians in this country. If he does clean the country of corruption then the country will benefit if not then everything would most likely stay the same. Either way, it is still not decided who will be winning this election. So pray and believe that God will place someone who'll be a great leader over this country.

Hello Kabayan,

Article related to 2016 Election. Interesting love story connected with our history and present day government. tssk tsssk.


The Love Story of Heneral Antonio Luna and Ysidra Cojuangco: Why the Filipinos Should Know – Pinay Thinks


Hey guys, anyone voting? Who you voting for? I'm very interested in Duterte's running for president. For the first time, Filipinos are actually one (from all faiths) in urging him to run. I've never seen something this huge of a movement from our country and it's encouraging!

He's not even Christian but the Word of God remains true.

Righteousness exalts a nation. In the same way, Lee Kwan Yew, Singapore's first PM, I truly believe, was able to bless Singapore because he chose to help the Israelites (and Singapore still does this today). I am really really excited to see this election. And, needless to say, there is a lot to pray for (praying and believing for no death this election, no bloody encounter and no power interruption and that the people's unity will be strength for the rest of us to rise up to righteousness).

Thoughts on this my fellow countrymen?

Also, what do you think about Philippines having a federal government?
