President Du30 swears to follow the Supreme Court. He is willing to stop Martial Law in Mindanao if it rules against it. He warns that if he has to reinstate military rule to save the country, he will do it his way. That surely makes him a Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. copycat, he said.

[VIDEO]: The President said that if he is forced to declare Martial Law again in Mindanao after Supreme Court halts it, he will do it on his own, the Marcos way.
Martial Law Abuses
The President’s opposition party detests Martial Law. During the Marcos regime, Liberal Party politicians were allegedly arrested, detained and tortured. The late Ninoy Aquino was even charged with rebellion punishable by death penalty. He was permitted to seek medical help in the US after he got the public sympathy for his plight.
Suppressed Freedom of Speech
Media people also complained that press freedom during Marcos’ time was non-existent. The news was accessory to the rebellion and Communist propaganda of the insurgents. Most of these media affiliations are still around these days. They are the ones that back up the VP Leni Robredo and other LP political warriors for their anti-administration campaigns.
Getting what LP asked for
The Liberal Party will definitely get what it asked for if they continue to challenge the President. Their criticisms are not taken lightly. They all go through relevant legal processes. Since they never give the Philippine leader the benefit of the doubt, he is ready to give them hell one more time using Martial Law if they insist.
Copycat of Marcos
The 1987 Constitutions was revised by the late President Cory Aquino. If LP members are not convinced that it prevents the President from doing what Marcos allowed to happen, then Du30 is more than willing to do it his way. That is more likely a Marcos copycat.
