I was smiling when I read Pepito’s recent article entitled “The Senate has lost it” – while reading I was browsing some of the mid 1900’s photos and docs I acquired from Cebu. It made me realize how low our politics has crashed since then, I mean just by looking at who use to represent us then and now you’ll understand why we’re all in a deep ditch right now. Sobrang laki ng pagkakaiba, para kang nagkumpara ng huwad na diamante sa tunay. Sobrang laki ng agwat sa lahat ng aspeto. By the way, most of these men (including Quezon) served their country during the revolution against Spain and some in the Philippine-American war, so these men knows true patriotism.
The photo above is the lineup of Partido Nacionalista ticket. This is perhaps the finest lineup for both the presidential and senatorial candidates in our history. It includes; Jose Yulo, Manuel Roxas, Quintin Paredes, Carlos Garcia, Amang Rodriguez, Vicente Madrigal, Ramon Fernandes, Elpidio Quirino, Jose Ozamis, Melencio Arranz, Antonio de las Alas, Esteban de la Rama, Nicolas Buendia, Jesus Cuenco, Emiliano Tirona, Daniel Maramba, Vicente Rama and Norberto Romualdez.
Now, who do we have?
