Leni Robredo cannot easily convince Filipinos that she fights for real democracy. The recount for the VP race is not yet on the horizon because of her alleged delaying tactics. She may mean well but it is just too obvious that she does not have in depth understanding about certain issues. Like she attacks the president’s drug war, suggests to decriminalize it when she has no clue about the difference between heroin and shabu. The latter can really mess up an addict’s head.

Robredo insinuates that she sees that the country’s institutions are eroded. They are weakened, she said. It is not certain if she refers to the Congress’ dealings with the martial law. Or perhaps the Supreme Court’s nod to rival, Bongbong Marcos with regards to the three commissioners he pleaded for in his electoral protest against her.
In the summit that aims to boost support for the fight against threats to democracy, Robredo expresse her concerns that alleged online propaganda is already very powerful. Drug war data are corrupted and fake news somewhat dominates the scene, she observes. There’s no realization at all that social media can only be powerful when there are real people manning them.
Robredo is right to say that Filipinos should rise above disagreements and “build bridges of understanding. In extraordinary times and if differences are not set aside, the country would not stand a chance,” said the VP. However, actions speak louder than words. She and her co-party members continue to discredit their political enemies in every way they can. This is on the verge of bringing up the dead to destroy the son who can be a very promising president in the near future.
“Let us build bridges of understanding, not walls. Let us bury our egos and our pride and let empathy rise. Let us not just think of a democracy as a concept but as a means to lessen the suffering of the poor,” she added.
