In the Philippine government, we want that our political and public officials must live by good example upon which our children’s character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can look up to and be proud of. They must have excellence in an era of mediocrity; of originality in a time of faddishness and strained outrageousness — a genuine instance of honesty at a time of envy and greed.

I know you're out there afraid... afraid of the public officials because of all the powers they have over us. You're afraid of change. With the corrupt regime, I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell how it's going to begin. I'm going to show you what you don't want to hear and what you don’t want to see. I'm going to show you a nation without rules or controls, borders or boundaries-- a nation where anything is possible. Where we go from here is a choice I leave to you.

These public officials have invaded and trampled our sovereignty, our rights, dignity, pulverized our economy, and bankrupt the government treasury. Like a Velociraptors, they are out in force today. They use coordinated attack patterns. They slash at us here and there with their claws like a razor, with unrelenting and in continuous fashion. And the worse is, we are alive when they start to eat us. Even then, we still remain meek. They assimilate every facets of government with corruption, and we fall back. Not again. We will not sacrifice our country. We've made too many compromises already. Too many retreats. The line must be drawn here. This far no farther. And we will make them pay for what they've done.

Let’s remember, the fear of suffer is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered while chasing its own dreams—to have leaders whose love is for the country and the people-- a true and real patriot.

Sometimes the things we want most are the hardest to get. That means you need to be even more determined to succeed. That's what it takes to be a winner. You have to want it bad enough to stick with it no matter how tough things get.

"The blue sky is infinitely high, crystal clear...that's what the world should be, a world of infinite possibilities, laid before us, crystal clear". -Kentatsu

The citizen who thinks he sees that the government is peopled with mediocrity, worn out, abusive, and basking with the aura of invulnerability to violate any law, and yet holds his peace and does not agitate for a new government, is disloyal, he is a traitor.

"My kind of loyalty was loyalty to one's country, not to its institutions or its officeholders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from winter, disease, and death". (Mark Twain)

We will never negotiate. We will no longer tolerate and will no longer be afraid. It should be their turn to be afraid.

We might as well stand and fight because if we run, we will only die tired. Never mind if your contribution is only a mite, your help only a little. Remember this, take this to heart, live by it: that blades of grass united into a rope will hold in confinement the maddest of elephants. It is through the many that we reach the one. Even the least work done for others awakens the power within.

There is a saying, a very old saying: when the pupil is ready the master will appear.

If any one of you believes what I am espousing is inciting to something, like violence, I will be sorry. I will only be too glad if I can excite in you the power of critical thinking for yourselves of what is happening in and around the corridors of power. Oooh! Ahhh! That's how it always starts. Then later there's running and screaming.
