The Lost Filipino

Geopoet writes the realism of the political spectrum of the Philippines from the ground of the Filipino masses. It portrays the realistic views of the small people who felt they are wrought of mass poverty as a result of so much political squabbles and bickering both from the top and lowest echelon of their own government.

Fear as a commodity these days is a widespread virus that tries to penetrate the every heart of common people living within the perilous gallows of intellectual absurdity where theories and principles collide at midpoint to cause a tsunami of issues that stimulates lots of scenario in the minds of many from among hypothetical assumptions.

This is what I see as I was observing the political stage of our country. The House of Congress are divided on its own, while the last line of defense for justice which is the Supreme Court arena is now spluttering a liquid dilemma on constitutional amendments against those who are pursuing a charter change, thus, a pre-trial has already began torturing the many afflicted and less fortunate brethren of economic upliftment.

As the more respected intellectuals mangled around their own bushes, the economic perspective of the country as was envision is doomed to a restless fiasco. Mudslinging and finger-pointing clad in a most dangerous dramatics insurmountably overwhelmed those of their own classes.

The war of words and media alliance can be observed among few moneyed individuals whose ambitions are to economically and politically control the reigns of governance to their own selfish ends; or cripple the very foundation of democracy by the whims and caprices of those whose aims are plainly to instigate dysfunctional irritation among many to bring out the good for their own externalist psyche.

To these days, the business world has been lured in to play on a gamble with politicians who can promise a profitable business environment but to the very expense of the great many poor people. They know that the latter is resilient and are prone to submission when their immediate need is the bet for the day. They can increase prices at a point that poor people will submit their will in exchange of their personal convenience, shaming the economic theory known by endowed few.

From down here, we observe political leaders playing chess games in the liquid board of word wars and silent resiliency of those knowledgeable of the truth. These political leaders or let’s say “political bigwigs” who draft their own plans of accelerating their own selfish desire and greed of power, and make a difference along the way where history will remember them as such.

Yes, I see a lot of vanity around. It disturbs a lot of shaded truth; a danger that may trigger a social volcano to erupt at once. But there is more to it… it may either be a political suicide or social responsibility among few good people.

What really makes a social volcano erupts? ... I dare to say: Political deceptions camouflage with political truths of their own endless ambition.

Pity, my dear fellowmen, pity is what they deserve at last and what we shyly deserve, too!

Unclog the mouths of the imaginary social volcano with those deceptive instrumentality and allow the whole nation decide what it really deserves.

Allow the House of Congress deserves the trust by those who voted them; allow these people’s representatives to chart a new era of economic stability or instability. Let those responsible be uplifted in their own turf and let’s see what happens next.

This time, either a bitter scenario or a better outcome will shortly dry up the fears that were drawn by those who deceive.

I still believe in the power and capacity of the House of Congress to draft what is best for all the people. I do believe that this is the most democratic way to earn the best of our political system.

I don’t believe in a few recalcitrant deceivers to influence my judgment by instigating or pushing the people to come to the streets and air their grievances. In my own perspective, this is the very sign of political immaturity among the many matured political stalwarts who are using the discontented people to run up in view their own political charts.

If we would allow this to be so, the Filipino people really do not deserve a democratic country, the least, we deserve something new than this! Get Paid to Take Surveys
