I offer no apology for what I am posting, for this is truly how I feel. This is my opinion, not a debate. If you disagree or find my opinions offensive, I’m perfectly fine with that & no, I’m not offended, feel free to unfriend me immediately.
I have lived through several Philippine Presidents before our current President Duterte. In my lifetime, I have never seen nor heard of a President examined over every word he speaks, humiliated by the public to the point of disgrace, slandered, ridiculed, insulted, lied to & beyond common logic, threatened with death.
I am truly ashamed of the people of MY country. I am ashamed of the ruthless, hating, cruel, Duterte haters who display themselves as to have no pride, morals, ethics nor values in Our Country’s traditions. Our Elders taught us 30, 40+ yrs ago to respect our President, whether we voted for them or not, & all these news stations & reporters who feel they have the right to carry on with obvious lies & say the things they do for a good story.
Every other President before he was elected, that took the oath of office, was left alone, wasn’t on the news 24/7, examined by their every word. ALWAYS BEING PRESSURED to do this or that & never given the time to take care of the important work this country really needs. I know he is not perfect, very different than what we’ve become in general too but ENOUGH is ENOUGH, LEAVE THE MAN ALONE & LET HIM DO HIS JOB!! None of the other Presidents in their times were spotless or perfect either. I want our President Rodrigo Duterte to succeed & try to make our Philippines great again!
