All Rights are Respected
The late President Ferdinand Marcos is a patriotic leader. His people, the Filipinos were the priority. He made sure that there’s respect for all rights. No matter what status one is in. This is a big contrast compared to history books. He was demonized by his political enemies. So, it is best to compare notes. Then check the evidence. Stories from the golden era survivors must tally with proof.
Fairness and Justice by the Military
The Dilawans always highlight the alleged atrocities during the martial law period. But why was it proclaimed in the first place? Saving the country from communism is just one of the many reasons. The irony is, Ninoy Aquino was the go-between of the communist party and the New People’s Army. In short, he initiated brutal rebellion and terror. Ferdinand Marcos on the other hand instilled fairness and justice in the military. Therefore, who’s to blame?
Achievement through Reforms
Ferdinand Marcos’ visions are not just on blueprints. They remain beneficial to the country today. He’s on top of everything. From educational to agricultural reforms. There are no other presidents that came close to what he has done. Most of these reforms stood the test of time. The only evidence that his enemies have with revisionism is the history they wrote with media reference only as evidence. Not to mention the court cases with no proper jurisdiction.
Remembering Ferdinand Marcos on his birthday
On the occasion of the late Ferdinand Marcos’ birthday, it is worth remembering that even after his death, he still serves the Filpino people. This is through his economic, health, education, cultural, and infrastructure projects. Thanks to President Rodrigo Duterte who finally helped fulfill his wish to be buried at the Heroes Cemetery. People now realized his heroism. Not just as a well-decorated soldier but as the leader who worked for the welfare of his countrymen.
History will Judge Him
Critics must be very careful in standing their ground against him. They should be shameful enough not to benefit from his provisions. May that be airports, hospitals, schools, bridges and roads. Not to mention water and electricity. Plus 13th month pay. Now, who is doing revisionism?
The Time of the New Ferdinand Marcos
The visions, blueprints and plans of the fallen leader can still continue with the new Ferdinand Marcos. His son and namesake vows to implement them. The nation will be great again. Bongbong Marcos is to run as President in the 2022 elections.
If you don’t like Ferdinand Marcos, don’t use his infrastructure projects and do not benefit from his economic programs.
A loud commentator recently said that the haters of Ferdinand Marcos must stand on their principles. They should not use his projects. Like the roads, airports, LRT, hospitals, schools, and more. No benefits like the 13th-month pay should be paid to them as well. Not to mention the electricity and water usage. In short, they must go out of the Philippines if they hate Marcos that much.
Masagana 99 generates IR8 hybrid rice even for exports. Blue Revolution or fishing enhancement activities also give quality livelihood to the fishermen. Cultural Center of the Philippines, the PICC, and more exist for the nurturing of arts and crafts. Thus putting the Filipino entertainment shows on the map. So, most sectors if not all are under the economic plan of the late President Ferdinand Marcos.
Free Education and Health System
The literacy rate of the country during Ferdinand Marcos’ time went up to 100% in Manila. Labor reforms gave employments to Filipinos. These are through avid skills training. He also imposed the 13th-month pay as an incentive to full-time employees. On top of that is the improved healthcare system. The Filipino life span increases from 55 to 65 years old. The infant mortality rate also decreases. BLISS housing projects, Light Rail Transit Authority, and the stronger National defense during martial law, plus anti-smuggling initiatives were the other essentials on the side – that are still in use up to this date.
The Last Will and Testament of Ferdinand Marcos
Former First Lady Imelda Marcos tries to live longer than she could. She said, this is because of her late husband’s will and testament. She wants to see her son, Bongbong Marcos in the presidency. It’s because only another Ferdinand Marcos can implement it. Let alone prioritize it for the sake of the Filipino people.
Marcos Family’s Inheritance
It is a misconception that the Marcoses own the Marcos gold. The former president Ferdinand Marcos was transparent enough to say that he will only retain 10% of his worldly possessions for his family. The rest was set up for the benefit of the Filipinos under the Marcos foundation. Now that the gold earns a substantial amount from 170 countries, his vision for the world to take part can really happen through the wealth for humanity.
Wealth for Humanity
No one can dispute Imelda Marcos of the 240 Billion Dollars worth of bill of lading as proof for the Marcos gold. The last will and testament of Ferdinand Marcos are also in place. The dream of the former first lady can happen in 2022. Another Ferdinand Marcos is about to become president if all factions are united. That way, its implementation is already a sure ball. It’s only the son who has the heart to prioritize his father’s will. There’s no more excuse if the heir and president push it through Congress.
President Ferdinand Marcos Loved the Farmers
The late President Ferdinand Marcos considered the farmers as the heroes of the country. They might not have to go to war but they have daily struggle to keep people alive. Nonetheless, they are the less prioritized sector at the present time.
The Support of President Ferdinand Marcos to the Farmers
It was a fact that the Philippines once taught the Thais and the Vietnamese people how to plant rice. This cannot be erased from real history because many can attest to this event. The only argument of the Marcos detractors is the data for the financial losses in the industry. It’s because they consider it as a business. Whereas the great Ferdinand Marcos took this as a way to nurture the country’s food source. Too bad that the EDSA mutiny interrupted this.
The First Lady’s Role in Agriculture
Despite the busy schedule of the late President Marcos, he made sure that the agriculture sector was in the right hands. Farm owners always have access to his wife, former First Lady, Imelda Marcos. They correspond with her for the supplies, technology, and other provisions of the government. The farm owners then had the task to take care of their farmers like family.
The Last Words of Ferdinand Marcos were a Tearjerker.
The late president Ferdinand Marcos cannot believe the mentality of his predecessor, Cory Aquino. She did not want Marcos’s legacy to stick in the minds of the Filipinos. So, She discontinued all his projects. Thus, depriving them of the government services they deserve. Hence, more than 30 years after he’s gone, the Philippines is at the tail’s end of the world.
Technology, Infrastructure, and Agriculture
The Marcos presidency means a country abreast with technology, has efficient modern infrastructure, and productive agriculture. Finance people might say that the country’s finances in farming were on the red during Marcos’s time. But the beneficiaries of the coco levy fund might not get the share of its promise – but they certainly felt the support of the Marcos administration in terms of supplies, know-how and equipment.
The Aquino Rivalry
Former President Marcos suggests to former President Cory Aquino to continue his projects like the nuclear power plant for the welfare of the Filipinos. But she refuses to listen. She is afraid that the people would always remember Marcos. He finds it ridiculous of the then president to think more about her fears than to provide what Filipinos deserve. He then predicts that the Philippines’ downfall will happen in 20 years.
Marcos, like Duterte, also blocked from buying arms from US over rights issues
America’s Control Since Ferdinand Marcos
The two popular presidents, Rodrigo Roa Duterte and Ferdinand E. Marcos received unfair treatment from the USA when it comes to enhancing military capability. Duterte lashes out to former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile what Congress said. That America won’t sell to the country 20,000 more Armalites because of the alleged human rights violation accusation. These might be used to kill the citizens of the country. Enrile laughs his head off and said: They also do that to Marcos.
Human Rights Violation Accusation is an Excuse
Now, it is clear. The human rights violation accusation against these great leaders is a hoax. It’s America’s way of controlling the Philippines under a brilliant leader. Like what Enrile narrated. Marcos requested some squadron-type vehicles for combat. But the US advised him to just settle with the M5 which is for sports. This is such a rare opportunity that Ferdinand Marcos has a live witness to testify on these things during Duterte’s time.
No Strings Attached
Duterte retaliates to the Americans that if they won’t sell to the Philippines as per the specification of the choppers needed, then he would get them from Russia. They softened. Meanwhile, Enrile also stresses that the Americans only gave their very old helicopters and equipment to Ferdinand Marcos. So, the latter asked them to pay rent for the military bases they occupied. That’s the very reason why they want to destroy Marcos and his successors. When it comes to aiding, there must be no strings attached.
Former president Ferdinand Marcos is known to be “visionary” or advance thinker. So even after his death, Filipinos are still able to take advantage of his projects such as RITM to fight infectious diseases like what is happening now with the pandemic. That’s why this facility has been politicized since 1986.
EDSA Destroys the Initiatives of Marcos
If the 1986 EDSA had not happened, the Philippines might have its own vaccine already. It need not depend on other countries. However, due to the injustices against Marcos, the country went back to basic. This is why the current President, Rodrigo Roa Duterte urges Filipinos to find another Marcos. The good thing is, their chance to do that can be this 2022. The namesake of Ferdinand Marcos Bongbong is on his way back to public service. This time, in the executive office.
The Research Institute for Tropical Medicine
The Research Institute for Tropical Medicine existed since Marcos’s time in 1981. This is after the signing of E.O. 674. It authorizes the creation of a research facility under the Department of Health. The funds for this were from the Government of Japan. Together with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The RITM is tasked with planning and implementing research programs for infectious and/or tropical diseases.
Former President Ferdinand Marcos and First Lady, Imelda Marcos wed on May 1, 1954. This year is their 67th wedding anniversary. Many video clips show how the late leader woes his wife. He always expresses his love for her in a song. Many women can only imagine their husbands doing it for them. But sad to say, not many men have the same charm, confidence, and loving ways as Marcos.
Complimenting Her Youthful Glow
To encourage a woman to preserve her beauty must be through kind words. Complimenting instead of criticizing. Being proud of one’s better half can be uplifting. This would motivate spouses to take care of themselves. Marcos is a role model of men in this aspect. The way he treated his wife overwhelmed people then and now. Thus, overcoming some stories of infidelities popularized by the mainstream media.
A Peculiar Gift from Heaven
The wife is a gift from heaven. Marcos believed in this. He did not only adore her looks but acknowledged her youthful glow every time there’s an opportunity in public. He also did not forget to mention how briliant she is in whatever projects she laid her hands on. Praising the wife always can only make her feel special.
President Duterte believes that only Ferdinand Marcos can solve corruption
Somebody Like Ferdinand Marcos
During the 121st Philippine Navy anniversary, President Rodrigo Duterte said that no one can solve the corruption problem. Unless there’s somebody like the late President Ferdinand Marcos. This is interesting because he’s the biggest victim of such propaganda. Only to know in the end that he’s the country’s savior? Is there somebody like him?
The country just suffers from corruption breakouts particularly at the PhilHealth. The people’s trust diminishes when stories of some keens’ death were in the Covid-19 cases. Despite dying of other causes. On top of that, President Duterte refuses to get rid of the Health Secretary. No matter how various senators repeatedly call for his resignation.
Election 2022 Hopeful
If there’s one that resembles Ferdinand Marcos, it’s his namesake. Bongbong Marcos runs for any of the top two posts in the executive office come 2022. The filing of candidacy is yet on October 2021. However, his tandem with the President’s daughter, Sara Duterte-Carpio is the most popular bet. Duterte may only insinuate this at this time. His alliances can crumble if this happens. Cabinet members and lawmakers are pro and anti Marcos. It only boils down to the most influential when the right time comes.
