After reading Lourd de Veyra’s post in This Is A Crazy Planets for Rodrigo Duterte and his projected inaugural speech on spot.ph I have considered the option of voting for the badass mayor in 2016. Another thing that made me reconsider Duterte is the so-called forum that happened in De La Salle University in which he and his running mate Allan Peter Cayetano are the only tandem who attended the forum which looked more of a campaign just with that university and the things he said in that forum.
Voting for Duterte is good for some of the people but if we really think hard about it, are we really ready for a person like him to run the country especially for people who are not accustomed or used to see news of someone being dumped in the Pasig River or getting hanged in billboards surrounded by people in Quiapo or EDSA with a sign also attached to them like a necklace with the signs saying; “Pusher ako”, “Rapist ako”, “Adik ako” for that matter. More important is for the funeral parlors to be ready to cater a lot of corpses than they use to.
If we vote for the man over any other candidate, he can really win the GOD DAMNED THING. Because everyone is tired of seeing trapos doing these not so subtle commercials that they are already campaigning themselves.
If Duterte really wins the 2016 election don’t expect the crime rate to easily go down that fast but the fear of Duterte himself and the Davao Death Squad will be there for the motherfuckers who dare to make a move under his presidency. I would be thrilled than fearful to see some criminals floating in the Pasig River. If not floating in the river probably placed inside a barrel or drum in very narrow alley within Metro Manila. The Davao Death Squad will now become the Philippine National Death Squad possibly getting rid of the incompetent policemen who are as incompetent and fat like the chief of police in ‘The Simpsons’, Chief Wiggum and replacing the Philippine National Police as a whole.
In that forum at DLSU, it’s good to hear his plans for agriculture since Mindanao has rich rice fields and plantations of some sorts which from my understanding, is really the backbone of the country’s economy not just the region itself. Not these developers who are trying hard to make skyscrapers and skylines. Even ruin Jose Rizal’s background.
When he becomes president, I only hope and pray hard that he can solve the traffic problem in Metro Manila because every mayor in each city of Metro Manila is not really capable of easing the problem but for one thing; Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada and Vice Mayor Isko Moreno did this truck ban to ease the traffic in Manila but then lifted the ban because of pressure from truck drivers and business owners who find it hard to make things work during the window hours.
I hope he plans to regulate the number of cars being sold to individuals and also limiting bus liners to have only this number of buses under each franchises or bus liners. We hope that Duterte encourages people to take public transportation and increase the number of trains for all lines whether it’s the MRT, LRT or even the PNR. Point is we need more trains.
He should have the idea to establish a railroad program that will establish a line that would distribute cargo easily so that cargo vessels won’t have a hard time distributing goods from the Bureau of Customs and ports across the country.
Since Duterte is a law graduate, I hope he improves the justice system with reforms that would bring back the trust and faith of the people who has completely lost their trust and faith with the system. I would like to see a much faster process in the justice system in which appeals will be limited to only one appeal. As for entrusting the justice system I only trust someone who graduated from UP, San Beda, and Ateneo to run the justice system particularly, the Supreme Court.
I don’t really mind Duterte bringing back the death penalty if he wants to because it is just practical because no one is afraid of going to jail these days. His future secretary of justice should have a reform in the penal system that makes corrupt officials eligible for death penalty that would surely get rid of some corrupt officials in power so that they can no longer contaminate the world. They should also turn things around in the New Bilibid Prison by depriving the prisoners of their VIP treatment like Tony Leviste who can enter and exit Bilibid whenever he wants so as Rolito Go, and many other prisoners serving lifetime sentences because of their high profile case. Also get rid of prisoners who can make music videos just within the facility. Give them hell on earth.
With the issue of Duterte taking mathematics out of the curriculum, I completely disagree with his idea of getting rid of math at all because how can one person become qualified to study engineering, architecture, and a business course if one student does not know how to calculate? I may have struggle with the subject especially in Behavioral Statistics when I was still a psychology major but getting rid of math will only benefit the delinquents who struggled with math many times.
Schools in the provinces should expand and have more classrooms because I’m really tired of seeing public schools having this shortage of classes and especially the lack of updated textbooks.
The DSWD under his presidency should not be the DSWD that we know today because of pilfering the relief goods that came to benefit the victims of typhoon Yolanda then hiding the poor and homeless whenever a big time dignitary comes to the country like the ones Dinky Soliman brought to a resort during the Pope’s visit in January 2015.
The DPWH should progress efficiently not only work very fast with Duterte as president especially with the construction of the Skyway because if the people working at the DPWH do not want to lose their jobs they should really do well if they do not want to get a standing ovation from his middle finger and the big PUTANG INA NIYO from his mouth.
It is not only the Skyway that needs to get done under his term or any other candidate. There should be something that would really connect the archipelago under his term from bridges and much stronger Roro boats.
Taking the Commission on Human Rights out of the picture as he wants to is not really a solution because the CHR is just this organization telling us how to care for helpless human beings even if they are criminals who has their pair of testicles tied to a string being pulled by a loose cannon cop traumatizing the criminal to not do it again. But let’s be honest here, Duterte does not only want to get rid of the CHR because of Etta Rosales’ predecessor, Leila de Lima because the way I see it, he only wants to get rid of the criminals and their human right to have a lawyer and seek fair trial.
As for his disputes happening as early as now, it’s not really entertaining to see aspiring presidents talk bad things about each before the campaign proper and the debates because it’s like spoilers to a movie that you have long waited for another sequel then it would just be ruined by a childish argument. But for both Duterte and Roxas, keep it going.
If it is really Election Day tomorrow in the Philippines, I would really vote and pray hard for this guy to win so that the D.O.M. living next to us would stop ranting that he regrets coming back to the Philippines after living in Japan for twenty years.
