(Topic: Should President Aquino Get a Second Term as President?)

The sentiment for allowing Pres. Aquino to continue governing must emanate from the majority of the Filipinos. The process of changing the constitution is serious, highly divisive and fundamentally important that it can't be left for congress alone to decide without input and encouragement from the people. I understand that such a requirement would make it extremely difficult if not impossible for Pres. Aquino to extend his term. Of course, the onus is for the country to accept the challenge and realize what's at stake.

Pnoy needs a second term to fulfill the dreams of his parents and Filipinos. Two four years terms should be the norm unlike now the Philippines is spending so much on election every 3 years..let The President get more time to lift the Philippines further...

We need a gargantuan change. We need to have PNoy extend his term for that could interrupt the cycle of corruption if another "trapo" who will just enrich himself and his family succeeds the president. Marunong talaga ang Diyos. Bago pa man maka first base si Binay nalaman na ng taong bayan ang tunay na pagkatao nito. Tama na ang inggit at ambisyon for a change. Isulong ang kabutihan ng mas nakakarami. Extend PNoy's term for our country's better future.

Pnoy is the man!!!!!! but our constitution must be upheld. No reason to change it. It is going to be a very difficult road for the next president to travel..... hopefully.... it is Aquino's way..... Aquino's way is the only way to uphold Filipino's dignity. Very transparent!!!!! His governance is for the betterment of our country.

Honesty & integrity is the best policy. Pnoy in the past 4 years never stopped striving to create changes in our country via Daang Matuwid & going after political leaders (crooks & corrupt) who are outright dishonest & not trustworthy. Okay, let's admit that he's not perfect as other rivals portray him to be but at least he's not a crook or have enriched himself wile in office. His way is an ongoing reform system that must continue with good results. Should we make a U-turn at this point, the results might be different anymore. The possibility of the one who might replace him might not a be a straight arrow and a no-nonsense president who is not effective & ethical. Let Pnoy continue the good work.

I do believe that President PNOY Aquino III [a weak, incompetent & sissy commander-in-chief of the AFP] doesn't deserve to a second-term of the office of the president. Why? He lacks the attributes of excellent statesmen & commander-in-chiefs' of strong democratic leaders in the world like President W. Wilson, "who dreamed of a third consecutive term to accomplish his vision of world peace." The fact remains, President Aquino III failed to defend the Republic of the Philippines at the critical hours of greatest needs when Communist Chinese Navy invaded the Philippine waters jurisdiction.

The Gospel according to Bernas. He said amending the Constitution is against the spirit of Aquino's mother Cory and against the Spirit of the 1987 Constitution. Teka Muna. Akala ko ba Cory's administration was a failure. That it was a TWA administration. So, e ano ngayon kung i-amend yong Constitution crafted at her time. In fact this Constitution created more problems than solutions it should have been amended a long time ago. People should address this question of Aquino seeking a 2nd term by looking at ground zero, meaning what is happening to the country NOW. Would they rather preserve a defective Constitution and see the country stay a basket case than amend it for the betterment of every Filipino?

The problem with lengthy presidential term is the misuse of power. We have been a witness to that during the time of Marcos and Arroyo. Even with a four year term with re-election, problems would surface on the second term. We saw that with the jueteng money by Erap (halfway through his 6 year term as an exception) Martial Law in 1972 by Marcos. Note well that Marcos was elected in 1966. He was president and dictator for 20 years. The idea to remain in power is ingrained in every politician's mind in the Philippines. They are just madly in love with POWER. It is an OPIATE to them. It is the alpha and the omega of political dynasty!

The issue is not about 4 year term with reelection or 6 without , but how much could the president really deliver to his constituents within those time frames? PNOY started with the wrong foot with his WANG WANG thing instead of bringing justice to the victims of the Ampatuans, convict or dismiss all plunder charges against Gloria, and all dishonest and felnious cases involving generals and civilians. Some kind of closures or finality were never seen to convince the public that his " matuwid na daan." was real and working.

Hindi na dapat ma-extend term ni PNoy kung ang mananalo sa susunod ay mahusay ring presidente. Pero kung ieextend pa term at pagkatapos naman ang susunod kay PNoy ay balasubas, gagawin din nyang mag-extend ng magextend. Paano nga kung kagaya ni Marcos ang pumalit kay PNoy?

The idea that when the term of PNoy is modified or extended beyond the usual 6 years by an act of Congress, it takes effect immediately, is wrong. It should be put in a ballot and 2/3 of the registered voters must approve. All elected officials must accept a mandatory retirement after 20 years cumulative service. In this manner, we allow new faces and talents in the political field. No more of 90 year olds like Enrile or 70 something men like Binay, Erap, etc.

Discounting the term of office of Marcos, Gloria Arroyo served the most number of years (9 freaking years) as president. As if she had not enough, she sought a seat in congress to represent her hometown. It is not how the law limits the tenure of office as defined in the 1987 constitution but a never ending "rotation" like a Ferris wheel. Too long in public breeds the arrogance of power. If the vice-president assumes office because of the removal, sickness, resignation or death of a sitting president, he or she should seek the mandate of the people to serve the unexpired term of the incumbent through a national election. To be in public service for 20 years (cumulative) should force a mandatory retirement of any official to allow others access to serve.

It is not that we ran out of talented, high caliber persons who are qualified to lead the country. What count is how much a person determined to make the country surfaced. This is why I am favor for amending the constitution. It is only right and for the benefit of Filipino people that our President Noy be having another term, one reason is, to continue his reform agenda and to give conclusion to major cases like Ampatuans, GMA, three detained Senators and other things related to it that majority believed will vanish only in the air should VP Binay take placed whose sole desire is to benefit himself.

Six years for a bad government is six years too long. For a good government it may not be enough. However, when one tinkers with the fundamental law of the land then a huge cautionary signal is required. While Pres. Aquino's reign might need an extra time to finish the job, his anti-corruption drive has drastically opened the eyes of the people and changed the fabric of Philippine politics.

The existing 6 Years Term for President and Senators is the biggest drawback in the Philippine Government. Most of those who are serving within has make so much money before they end their term to secure their own personal vested interest. It will always happen regardless who will take over PNoy as its next president. Though I am for the strong reforms he wants to deliver, another 6 years can not solved the problem as long as those who are with him are not being investigated as well. That is why former Pres. Ferdinand Marcos failed due to the called UTANG NA LOOB including the abuses of his own wife Imelda and his cronies who help him. Extend 2 Years more for PNoy be the Max.

The Filipinos are missing the point. Pres. Aquino or anybody for that matter can stay for ten years or more and still it won't be enough. The fact is, the culture of corruption can't be solved without the acquiescence, the discipline or united effort of the major segment of the population. Unfortunately, it might require a cohesive struggle, peaceful or otherwise, from the North to the South, to achieve this end.

Enough is enough. For a bad president like this one sitting, literally sitting - for he has NOT done anything of significance for this country - another 6 year term is a wayward anchor well entrenched to the murky mud bottom - i.e PDAF, DAP, promised but being flip-flop FOI, coddlers of corrupt Allies, and many more - thereby dragging the whole ship from progressing to its rightful intended course. Good riddance if he finally leaves the political scene he doesn't deserved in the first place.

It is all in the mind or in one's dream if Reagan would seek a third term (because mabango cya according to [someone]). The XXII amendment had pre-empted that ambition of his. The two term limit took effect in 1951. Reagan became president in 1981. Secondly he was in the early stage of Alzheimer. He would just sign any presidential paper without even reading it.

If a candidate is really interested in serving the public, a second term offers enough incentive to do better. On the other hand, a longer term offers the exact opposite - the incumbent is no longer sensitive to constituent's concern. When we talk of "unlimited re-election" we could not protect the nation against the " arrogance of power." We all went through that during the martial law years. The question I would like to pose is: "do we get a better president with a four year term with re-election or a single term of 6 or 7 years with no re-election?"

As I said in my previous entry, that fear is a "wrong mistake!". If ever, it will only open up an eligibility of Aquino III or any pretender to the presidency a second term. Two year hence, nobody can tell if Aquino III is still "mabango" or even alive!

Why would you give Pres. DAP another term? Your discernable character, personality, & mentality only indicates you are a corrupt individual, a lawless person who does not respect the rule of law. When it suits you, it will be alright. When it is contrary to your own personal well-being and belief, it is evil. Devoid of obeyance & social norms, you are a despicable creature living in a society that is trying to uphold the rule of law. Supporters of Pres. DAP like the blue-blooded Mr. Palengke endorsing the former for a 2nd term would be violating the Constitution. Mr. Palengke, the way he thinks is not the right politician to rule the country. Respect the Phil. Constitution & if lapdogs of Pres. DAP would amend the term in office, it SHOULD NOT APPLY to Mr. DAP but the next.

Does President PNOY Aquino III deserve a second term of presidency? It is common knowledge that democracy is weak without legitimacy, accountability & rule of law. Is President PNOY Aquino III subject to the rule of law as much as the rest of public servants [in terms of questionable use of DAP & PDAP]? If your answer is yes, democratic institutions are safe. But President Aquino III must disclose to the public during impeachment about the legitimacy of DAP. Congress power of investigation must be utilized to unmask the corruption of self-perpetuating elite & the perennial acquisition of ill-gotten wealth by members of political dynasties. The 'institutionalization' of different forms of corruption in the Philippines is the real enemy of democracy.

JOEL VILLANUEVA is lawmaker who is politically aligned with the Aquino regime! He is also a leader of the organization called Citizen Battle Against Corruption (Cibac). But where is he now? How come he is not yet charged by this 'tuwid na daan' regime? Villanueva was one of the lawmakers who lobbied the Technology Livelihood Resource Center (now the Technology Resource Center) for approval of projects to be financed from the Priority Dev. Assistance Fund and implemented by dummy aid org. set up by Napoles.

Why must some writers be so concerned with politicians being a love child like Gracie Poe. Who cares! Two Philippine presidents were illegitimate children (bastardos in Spanish) . They were Manuel Quezon( kastila) and Sergio Osmena.(insik). JV Ejercito of the senate is a bastard himself! His father is Erap, his mother is Guia Gomez, who is currently the mayor of San Juan. Ramon Revilla Sr. fathered some 80 kids. One or two might end up becoming future presidents or first ladies of the country. What is the fuss or brouhaha?

A frequent blogger loves to label others as " mahina ang kokote." He made fun of one writer who said there was a Confederate States of America with its own flag and a president with a single term of 6 years with no re-election. The two Americas existed during the CIVIL WAR. This writer would have failed his US citizenship test had he disclaimed it. He would also fail reclaiming his Pinoy citizenship if he believes that Quezon and Osmena were not love children (only Grace Poe but not even Senator JV Ejercito).

"Beware of forces vs. reform", according to PNoy! But the question is 'what are those reforms that he has taken?' If there are any reforms he has done, who are the beneficiaries? Why are most of Pinoys are still poor? Why are so many criminals roaming in the streets of Manila waiting for an opportunity to strike? Shortage in water, shortage of power, mass transit systems like the MRT/LRT, PNR are almost at a stand still because they are corruptively ill-maintained! These problems are right in front of and under the very wide noses of PNoy and his appointed officials! BS Aquino is a charlatan, a FAKE REFORMER!

According to former fugitive TRILLANES says PNoy will not endorse BINAY! My take: Since when this PMAer and now a bootlicker of Benigno Aquino III became spokesman of PNoy? While the agriculture department has 2 chiefs in the persons of ALCALA & PANGILINAN, Disaster Management Council has 2 chiefs in the persons of GAZMIN & ROXAS, and 2 Executive secretaries in the persons of OCHOA & ROXAS (again); there are also 4 SPOKESPERSONS speaking in behalf of BS Aquino, and they are: VALTE, LACIERDA, COLOMA, & lately TRILLANES! What the heck is this? So Abnonoy, that's why we have become the LAUGHING STOCK of the world!

The Binay Dynasty. As witnesses unravel the doings of the Jojo Binay administration in Makati, his children Rep. Abigail and Sen. Nancy talked to the press. MY God, how disgraceful to the country's image! These 2 Binay children are so young that it seemed like a joke to call them Congresswoman and Senator. Nancy kept saying the same thing over and over again. Abigail tried so hard to cry but tears would not come. Papano iyak buwaya. Para usapang bata. I still cannot reconcile how the PHL tumbled to these depths. It's as if Recto, Diokno, Tañada, Sumulong and the those great Filipino legislators never existed. That we just imagined them.

Sabi ni Someone it does not matter if Sen. Grace Poe is Macoys daughter. It matter and she should make clean in bring it out to the open. She is holding a very high position as Senator and for her to run for a much higher position the entire people of the country will surely be more willing to accept her. There is nothing to be ashamed to tell the real truth one way or the other it will come out anyways. I am pretty sure that small girl who is with Macoy in some photo shots from Media is non other than Grace Poe anyways. DNA will prove it ok

The Impeachment complaint against Aquino is progressing. Now let's assume Aquino is impeached. And Binay is convicted of Plunder. The only logical person who would win the Presidency would be Joseph Estrada because he has the most solid following. He would easily beat all the rest of the wannabes and we would wake up one morning in 2016 to find that a pardoned plunderer has been elected President. This is the scenario that Filipinos deserve. This way they could concoct all kinds of charges against the incumbents just to keep their game going.

China Owns the Entire South China Sea? What are They Smoking—Opium?

The arrogance of China is becoming readily apparent with each passing day.

On Her 5th Death Anniversary, We Say 'Thanks for Nothing Cory Aquino'

The passage of time has a way of distilling reality and bringing out truths that are sometimes hidden or lost by present circumstances.

Will the Philippines Ever Become a Developed Country? The short answer to that is no—at least not in our lifetime. While the country has of late improved it credit ratings as evidenced by upgrades from Moody's, Fitch, and Standard & Poor's all that perceived progress is illusory.

Napoles PDAF/NGO Scandal: What is Ten or Fifteen Billion Pesos Really Worth?

For those who have been following the Janet Lim-Napoles PDAF/NGO* scandal these past months, it is easy to get caught up in all the rhetoric—the words and phrases repeated day after day. Words like "ten billion" or "fifteen billion" have turned into something akin to "gray" background noise.  Words devoid of any real meaning or significance. So let us try to put back some meaning into those trite and often-repeated phrases in order to better understand some of the far-reaching ramifications of Napoles' actions. Published 06/30/2014
