Don’t crit­i­cize the pres­i­dent?

first place, “wala pay daghang chan­nel sa pana­hon ni Que­zon, samot na sa pana­hon ni Os­mena ug ni Lau­rel.” But grant­ing that in­deed you were un­fairly treated, then fine – let me praise you for what you should be praised. One, I ad­mire your de­ci­sion to end con­trac­tu­al­iza­tion. Two, I was hope­ful when you ap­pointed Gina Lopez. Three, I ad­mire your “hate for drugs.”

Ap­par­ently, there are some good things that are hap­pen­ing un­der your ad­min­is­tra­tion. But there re­ally is a prob­lem. You lack con­sis­tency. Why did you ap­point an exGen­eral to re­place Gina in the DENR? You said you hate drugs but I hope that be­fore your term ends, Peter Lim will be ar­rested.

I agree that news re­ports should also say some­thing good about you. What I can­not ac­cept is the fact that many of your sup­port­ers are lovers of fake news. And the prob­lem is they just don’t care­lessly share, they de­lib­er­ately cre­ate fake news just to de­fend you.

I am writ­ing this let­ter be­cause I am wor­ried of our fu­ture. I do not claim that I “love” (this coun­try) be­cause love is such a de­bat­able word. Do not worry Mr. Pres­i­dent, I am not a drug ad­dict and nei­ther am I a mem­ber of NPA. I am not also the pres­i­dent of the CBCP and am not a grad­u­ate of UP or Ate­neo. I hope you will un­der­stand that some of those who dis­sent and are dis­sat­is­fied with your ad­min­is­tra­tion do not fall un­der the cat­e­gories you and the mil­i­tary have in mind. FYI your Red Oc­to­ber does not bother me. I am not a be­liever of col­ors Mr. Pres­i­dent. I did not vote for PNoy, just to be hon­est.

I am writ­ing this with­out ha­tred. I also do not in­tend to of­fer any apol­ogy, and I also would not care if peo­ple will un­friend me in FB.

Fi­nally, it is true that the prob­lems in this coun­try, fairly speak­ing, are not all your cre­ations. True, you in­her­ited them from Cory, Ramos, Estrada, Glo­ria, and Noynoy. But pre­cisely, there is an­other thing which, by the way be­fore I for­get, I can­not but men­tion. Some if not many of our prob­lems were also due to the older Mar­cos. But, “nganong gipa lubong man nimo siyas Libin­gan ng mga Bayani” and not con­tented you want his son to re­place you?

Prayers for your health.
