Here's the top 10 reasons why Philippines is poor.
4. Media- Wahahaha.. I HATE THE NEWS!!!!!! Specially ABS-CBN and GMA news. Why? Because they only report the bad news. It kinda goes like this.
Mike Enriques: Excuse me poh... nagtaas nanaman ang singil sa kuryente, dahil dito magtataas na rin ang bigas, delata, sabon,posporo tinatayang wala na pong pag asa ang Pilipinas.
Mike Enriques: Nagbaba po ang singil sa kuryente....sa ibang balita naman po.. hinahanap na po ang pumatay kay.....
See the difference the media here in the Philippines just LOVE....... to broadcast bad news. But when something good happens they just miraculously don't go into detail. Or sometimes don't report it at all. They don't cause poverty but they sure make us poor and hopeless. Lol
(GO USA, GO USA)3.To much freedom and democracy- Sorry but what we Filipino have been fighting and dying it also one of the main reason why we are poor. Democracy is for people who are disciplined, unlike us. How many times have we pushed for freedom...and how is it? Remember the time we were under Marcos rule?We didn't have much freedom but it worked.. our economy was good.
(GLORY DAYS LOL..)1. Corruption- I know, its crazy, our officials are corrupt to the bone but they keep winning the elections. So how does it work? It kinda goes like; The National Government gives funds to local government for road widening for 10 miles, local Mayor receives the funds, he then starts the construction for 5 miles road widening. Where does the other 5 go? In his pocket!!! That scam and other amazing scams our officials think of to steal our hard earned money.
Here are some scams our great leaders pulled right in front of us.
Justice Secretary Hernando Perez receiving $2 Billion bribe money
Jose Pidal bank account
and the latest cinema-drama; AFP Pabaon, starring retired AFP Chief of Staffs and their wives.
and more to come.....
I believe that corruption is the greatest factor why we are poor. Remove this problem and we can finally say hello to progress.
