My friends chided me for being a single-issue voter. I did not vote for Noynoy because he supported the Reproductive Health Bill. I voted for JC de los Reyes of Ang Kapatiran Party even though I know he wouldn’t have a chance. But I voted for him, nevertheless. I supported both JC de los Reyes and Gibo Teodoro in my Monk’s Hobbit blog. Gibo, at least, has a capacity to change his mind on the reproductive health bill.
Catholics voted for Noynoy for many reasons. I did not vote for him for only one reason: the RH Bill. We should have voted for the man based on what he stands for and his capacity to govern and not who his parents are. The winds of CHANGE swept both US and the Philippines. We were mesmerized by the rhetoric of change. Change we asked for and change we got.
The US under Obama became a totally different nation. Obama could not mention the word “Creator” in the US constitution, believing that we could have the brotherhood of man without the Fatherhood of God. There is no more right and wrong religion: all religions are equal–equally unecessary to the functioning of the State. The US is now becoming a socialist state: big taxes, big healthcare plans, big government, but little faith on the ordinary working American who makes America great. If the Americans are not vigilant enough, within a few years, America will be a Communist Empire with a false messiah at its head.
The Philippines under Noynoy Aquino, even in Aquino’s first hundred days of power, is a mess. We don’t know who is in charge. With Gloria Arroyo as President, we know who is in-charge and we know whom to blame. But with Noynoy Aquino, we don’t know who is in-charge so we don’t know whom to blame: Is it the President, the Cabinet Secretaries, the Mayor, the Police Chief, the Media, or the one selling balut? Noynoy’s chat with Obama is a portent of things to come. Change we asked for and change we got. In a few years or even months, the streets will be flooded not by the waters of Ondoy but by condoms, pills, and abortion mills. We now see condoms sold in MRT stations. Soon we’ll see them in movie houses, in hotels, in every nook and corner of the street. This is what is happening in US and in the rest of the world. And UN, together with many multinational companies, are waging war on the soul of the Philippines. And they have Lagman and other lawmakers as their mouthpiece. They want us to offer our children to the Moloch that appears in the guise of Population Growth and Poverty. Fancy rhetoric. But we have heard those lies before from the Father of Lies lurking in the Garden of Eden: “You shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Tempting. You can be assured that the 432 million dollars promised investments has strings attached: “All these shall be yours, if you promote the reproductive health bill in the Philippines.”

I was walking in an overpass in Katipunan avenue that stretches from National Bookstore to Gate 2.5 of Ateneo. A saw an Ateneo faculty member and I guess some students handing out yellow ribbons to passing cars at the U-turn bottleneck. Amidst the yellow and white is a curious sight: a red flag with two Filipino words: “_____ Sosyalista”. I can only remember the English translation I made in my mind: Socialist Foundry. In the flag is a hand holding a hammer.
I was curious. I went to the guy carrying the flag. I asked them what group does he represent. He mentioned the name emblazoned in his flag. I asked him how is his group related to Noynoy Aquino for president campaign. He answered that his group supports the candidacy of Noynoy Aquino.
I am really suspicious of the word “socialist” in large red flags. I see these large red flags in leftist rallies. I think one reason for such large flags is to compensate for their little numbers. A group of ten people carrying one large red flag each, when viewed close-up by a cameraman for TV news broadcast, would appear a force to reckon with. But if you look at them from a distance and do a head count, you are lucky to get ten or more. And they use these large megaphones calling for the rejection of the present government system, which is a odd since Lisa Maza of Gabriela and Satur Ocampo of Bayan Muna are joining the senatorial race. This is a departure from Mao Tse Tung’s strategy of conquering the countrysides and then constricting the cities from without. I think the Philippine Left’s strategy now is to infiltrate the government system and use the government’s money to fund the Left’s conversion of the countryside. Communism is a Atheism, a godless religion. Communism was condemned by Pope Pius XII in 1948 and all who support it are excommunicated, e.g. Fidel Castro. But the condemnation is only for communism and not for socialism. And Satur Ocampo and Lisa Maza may call themselves simply as socialists, not communists. But I am still suspicious of those who call themselves socialists.
