Kevin, the Philippines is the fastest grooming economy in Asia and is one of the fastest in the world under the Aquino administration. Marcos was a criminal and he is the reason why this country is a third world. We are recovering fast and that by not having any slaves. You need to get out of your country and read stuff that's really happening around you and not what your leaders want you to believe.
"the Philippines is the fastest grooming economy in Asia and is one of the fastest in the world under the Aquino administration."
It's you who should "read stuff that's really happening around you and not what your leaders want you to believe". You can do that in the Philippines without getting out of your country.
The Philippines GDP growth in Q1 2015 was 5.2%, which is much lower than India's 7.5% and China's 7%.
"The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Philippines expanded 5.20 percent in the first quarter of 2015 over the same quarter of the previous year. GDP Annual Growth Rate in Philippines averaged 5.08 percent from 2001 until 2015, reaching an all time high of 8.90 percent in the second quarter of 2010 and a record low of 0.50 percent in the third quarter of 2009."
The Philippines people must be very proud of their president when he used such words to condemn China. For a person that holds the highest position of the State could accessed another with a ridiculous assumption and worshipped Japan as though they are their savior in WWII.
Simply, the people of Philippines should be ashamed of him representing the country that suffered under Japanese occupation suffering under that period and now worshipping them for what they did to them.
Mr. President, have some pride and if don't have your people does.
