Because the Philippines is a poor nation because it is rife with crimes, illegal drugs, political divisions, colonial mentality, crab mentality and political corruption.

I wish that I was born in a progressive countries such as Japan, France or the US.

It is misfortune to me that I was not born in a progressive country.
Seriously?

I'll speak as the descendant of revolutionaries, of my fathers whose blood stains our flag, our soil, and your ID. I'll speak as a son of men who fought and died for a country and never got to enjoy the freedom that was finally obtained, for they all died in battle before the Philippines was free.

Shame on you.

First, I know that our country isn't in the best place that it should be. I understand that there is a lot to improve. But I'll ask you: what have YOU done?

Are you someone who just wants to take what you want, without giving anything in return? Maybe you hate our country because it doesn't give you what you want. Well guess what? YOU ARE FREE WITHIN THE LAW, TO GET WHAT YOU WANT, IN OUR COUNTRY. Your are free to make yourself the life you want to life.

Second, the Philippines is your country. It is what God has given you. If there are things that you hate about our country, then by all means change it, or group up with like-minded people and change it!

You can do that! Because this is your country -- OWN IT!

You know what else? No one else from other countries will accept you as their own with the attitude that you have. Because they know you're there to benefit yourself. You don't want to give anything -- you just want to take without giving anything in return.

So you can leave, if you wish. No one will stop you. But don't expect people to welcome you with open arms.

You wouldn't fight for us -- your own blood, your own fellow citizens. Why would they put their trust in you?
