If I were President...

I will not legalize jueteng. It is argued that legalization will help get rid of all the bookies and gambling lords. But then again taxes are legal and that legality has not helped root out corruption in the system.

I might just promote the Parliamentary System if only it will serve to reverse the tide of people with no credentials and experience trying to run for the highest position in the land.

I would, however, recognize that any system is only as good as the people running it.

I would not irresponsibly call for reconciliation because of shocking implications: that Jose Pidal never existed, that Lacson was never a drug lord, that Honasan never instigated all the past coups, and that Imelda & company never stole billions of pesos. Reconciliation is fit for parties with ideological differences, not for criminals.
