Why do people await the comeback of Bongbong Marcos? Here’s the review of his political career and thoughts about the vital issues in the country. Mamasapano, Typhoon Yolanda, U.S. visiting forces agreement (EDCA), and their alleged betrayal to the late strongman’s administration. Know why Bongbong thinks that they are traitors. It was observed that he was with President Rodrigo Duterte during his recent state visit to China. The President announced there that he is cutting ties with America in the areas of the military and economy. He was also introduced as the new Vice President. (If he wins the electoral protest).

[VIDEO]: During the CNN Interview with Mitzy Borromeo, Bongbong Marcos opens up his thoughts and principles regarding the various controversial issues in the country. This is very enlightening and perhaps, President Duterte can be understood more as per Marcos’ explanations on his dealings with the Americans.
Filipinos are used to Hardships and struggle with a Smile
Tough times are the way of life of Filipinos. Very resourceful in finding a way to survive. Talented in making both ends meet. OFWs are noted to use this culture to survive and excel in other countries. Creativeness goes a long way and Filipinos are good at that. Ther campaigns for tourism and patronage for local products made Ilocos a first class province. Governor Imee Marcos did well in facilitating tourism efforts.
All resources should have been deployed in whatever costs. Take care of the survivors as well as the dead. Rotten cadavers can jeopardize the health of the living, mentally, emotionally and physically. Civilians who helped came to Tacloban first before the government. This should not be the case. The people should be able to rely on their government during disasters.
EDCA Discussed at the CNN Interview
The visiting forces agreement with the U.S. benefits the Americans greatly. They have military bases in Asia without paying rent – just aids. Not many promises are realized in terms of physical and financial improvements of the country in the last 7 decades with the alliance. Filipinos would be better off doing things on their own. The joint military exercises are good as per Bongbong’s talk with CNN.
Mamasapano’s pointing fingers at who might be responsible was the most painful thing that Bongbong witnessed. If it happened during the late Marcos’ time, he would have known everything. How could he not when 44 elite shoulders perished? They are now known as SAF44. No one seems to answer correctly if former President Aquino ordered the operation.
In the 70’s the Aquino-Marcos rivalry was strong but they are both gone now. The children do not have that kind of rift as far as Bongbong Marcos is concerned. Comments like; the “president is an Aquino and you are a Marcos” is something that they have to live with every day but not a big deal for them.
There were people that the Marcoses trusted that they should not have is the lesson learned from the EDSA revolution. That includes the Americans. The Marcoses thought that the U.S. was extending help and not connivance with the opposite party. But to their dismay. In the end, music relaxes Bongbong and makes him more creative in mind and in spirit.
