Gov. Imee Marcos said that with today’s technology, the local government has all the capabilities to fight inflation- rather than to depend on the national strategies. Her province is coming up with solutions on how to solve the surging prices of basic commodities. Instead of using President Rodrigo Du30’s frustration on corruption and the war on drugs as excuses, it’s time to come up with specific methods to produce essential crops. She is also thankful of the President’s trust to brother, Bongbong but the governor believes that the big change can happen now under Du30 because of his strong political will. As per the alleged dictatorship of the Marcoses’ patriarch, Gov. Marcos can only cite his achievements and legacy. He can’t be a dictator for those.

[VIDEO]: Watch the full interview of Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos as she expresses her opinion on different political issues in the country and talks about various projects that she is implementing for the province of Ilocos Norte.
Loved by His People
The Marcoses have always dominated the politics in Ilocos Norte. Consequently, the 100th birthday of Ferdinand Marcos is celebrated as a public holiday in this province. Imee, Imelda and Bongbong Marcos are among the attendees of the commemoration.
Testimony of the Elders
The people in Ilocos Norte back from Ferdinand Marcos’ time really looks up to the Marcoses. They believe that it is with the Marcoses that their province has developed. From a quiet rural province, malls are now being built all over.
The Truth Spreads Out
In contrast to the despise of the victims of Martial Law towards Marcos, the Ilocanos shows great love to them. Consequently, the Marcoses are extending their influence to the rest of the Philippines.
Anti-Marcos Black Propaganda is Dying
The Marcos era is infamous for Black Propaganda. There are issues about the debt of the country, if the election in 1986 was rigged, and if Marcos was a war hero. His detractors dispute the testimonials of the people involved during martial law as falsehoods but still, they remain on the internet. This is clear proof that the majority of the people now know the truth.
Marcos’ Legacy Speaks for Himself
In today’s age, we should not underestimate the influence of “alternative facts”. However, the future is what matters the most to the Filipinos. The supporters of Du30 trust him and his intention to pass the presidency to Bongbong Marcos. Consequently, Gov. Imee Marcos reacts to the statements about her father’s dictatorship by looking at his legacy. The “Build Build Build” project is being continued now by the current administration that follows the late Marcos’ blueprint. That is enough to tell that world that he was fine if not a great President indeed contrary to the demonization efforts of his enemies.
