President Duterte Has Resurrected the Craving for Independence
OVER 16 MILLION Filipinos crave for the change that Presidente Duterte stands for.
We have a president who loves us back, who speaks for us and make things happen the way we want it for us. And that's all it takes to ignite the craving for independence: from foreign governments' manipulations, evil plots and what not. We have a president who believes in our own country.
To the young generation, the words 'Philippine Independence' may just mean only one thing: holiday. As if its too much to understand. Just because they cannot relate. Never felt, never experienced. Nobody knows anymore that it is something to crave for. Of what it feels like to crave for it.
Even during former President Corazon Aquino's EDSA days, when the love of country was very strong again, the sense of independence wasn't really that full. Why? Because there was still a strong COLONIAL MENTALITY, that we can never make it without the US, the feeling of us being the small brother to the United States, always looking up to their government as if everything they do and say comes from Heaven, everything that comes from them is the best.
Until President Duterte came along.
Now, at least, we experience what those in the past have experienced: that craving for independence, that craving to tell the world that we are no little brother to anyone because WE ARE EVEN BETTER THAN THOSE WHO ARROGANTLY MANIPULATE US TO MAKE US THINK SMALL OF OURSELVES AS A COUNTRY.
We are no morons. We know where we stand. Look everywhere. At every part of the world can be found Filipinos, leaders and servants, all excelling in what we do. We are beautiful people, with a heart, so as our Miss Universe Pia once said.
WE ARE NO PUSH-OVER TO THE U.S. GOVERNMENT. WE ARE NO PUSH-OVER TO THE UNITED NATIONS, which consequently was founded by US in Washington.
At last, we have a president who stands up for what is just for our country. NO COWARD. A president who in every essence, brings transparency to the Filipinos by saying as it is, no dramas, no edits, simply as it is.
We have a president who loves us back. And that's all we need to crave for the spirit of independence. With that love, we, the Filipinos, united as one under President Duterte, will move mountains!
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
