Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos expresses admiration for “millennials” who have an “exciting reassessment” of the legacy of her father. They portray the late President Ferdinand Marcos as the most intelligent, competent, and effective president the Philippines ever had. Like her mother’s plight back then, who was the Evita Peron of the country, Gov. Imee Marcos is loved by the poor but viewed with suspicion by the elite. Since her senatorial bid has become obvious already, there’s no backing out. She is likely the next iron butterfly of Asia who inspires the less privilege to enhance their skills for better financial status.

[VIDEO]: Imelda Marcos was compared to Evita Peron, being beloved by the poor but viewed with suspicion by the elite.
Evita Peron’s Legacy
Born into poverty in 1922 in squalid Los Toldos, she became an actress and wife of Juan Peron, the former President of Argentina. She wields a charismatic influence amongst the poor and working class of Argentina. Died in 1952 of cancer at age 33, her personal effects and memorabilia were auctioned by Christie’s in 2004.
Iron Butterfly Cong. Imelda Marcos
Born into the powerful Romualdez clan in 1929 in Tacloban, she enters Miss Philippines beauty pageant. She then persuades the mayor to give her the top prize. She married Ferdinand Marcos in 1954 when he was still a promising congressman. Imelda captures the masses with her singing and her beauty. Although she faces more than 150 court cases, she’s never found guilty of any. The PCGG confiscates a considerable amount of her personal possessions where some are for auction.
The New Age Evita Peron
Gov. Imee Marcos was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. She is powerful in her own rights. The masses and middle-class Filipinos admire her being herself. True in any way. Bloggers tag her as “babaeng bakla” or a gay woman. She has the beauty, charm and wit of Evita ad Imelda combined. Most of all, she has the heart of gold in service to the people that the two political icons possess – definitely a shape changer. The envious elite cannot hide their viciousness – they are notable in using students and some commercial media in maligning Gov. Imee and her family.
The Truth Prevails
Despite the black media propaganda against the Marcoses, the Cong. Imelda, and children, Gov. Imee and former Senator Bongbong Marcos, continue to command a following. Imelda Marcos is Ilocos Norte Representative, daughter Imee is the province’s governor, while the late President’s namesake, can be the new Vice President of the country after challenging his loss in the May 2016 Vice Presidential race with concrete evidence against the Liberal Party. The people await the recount on March 19, 2018.
