The New Philippine President
Pompous celebration Again? Yes, Pilipino once again set their hope and expectations with pomp and glitters of happy and hopeful emotions to the inaugural of a newly elected Philippine president which the eventuality always are frustrations, impeachment and “people power” if the newly elected Philippine president have not met the expectations and the hope they trust and cling on during the pompous inaugural.
Now, the inaugural of the 15th Philippine president has been highly hope for because they expect too much that the 15th Philippine president Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III will not fail them and disappoint them just like what the former Philippine presidents have always done.
For some Pilipinos thought that “Noynoy” being a son of the Philippine’s icons of democracy – late ex-Philippine president Corazon Aquino and late ex-Philippine Senator Benigno Aquino – he will also do the like of his parents. However, do his parents have augmented the condition and status of the Philippines, economically and spiritually? In my opinion, they did not, but rather his parents only oppose political oppression and dictatorship and not economic oppression and spirituality. For if the late ex-Philippine President Corazon Aquino have truly reign successfully and have truly bring success and progress to the Philippines, politically, economically, and spiritually, there would be no problems of such of these now and on during her reign or administration, like graft and corruption, poverty, moral hypocrisy, etc.? Is not it?
Therefore, is “Noynoy” the hope Pilipino are waiting for or is it just a mere an empty emotional excitement again?
