Finally Mayor Duterte of Davao decided to run for President of the Philippines in the election in 2016. For Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-LABAN). Many Filipinos are thrilled with his decision especially the Mindanaoans. Really when Mayor Rody said a few months ago that he is not interested to run, many people of the Philippines were disappointed. I know that we were. Even when Aaron was still in the USA, he would tell us that if we heard from the news that Rody filed for his candidacy as president to let him know no matter what time it is in the States. Ha ha ha, in our household we are serious in supporting Duterte for president.
I know that the mayor has many enemies too especially the drug users/dealers and those other criminals, but I think the country needs a leader who is tough and not afraid of anything. It would be interesting to see how he will be living in Malacanang. I’ve heard from friends that knows him well that he always welcome poor people in his house. I’m wondering if he will do that kind of stuff in Malacanang. I know one thing he does here in Davao he welcome those indigenous people from the province and bring them to the city and feed them.
If Rody wins, I think he will be the first Mindanaoan to be the president of the Philippines. I think it’s time to have one from this island. It’s just tiring to see that it’s always people from Luzon who run the country and they don’t know much about Mindanao. I hope all of us in the south of Luzon will unite and vote for Rody. Even before he said he will run for president, I’ve seen many cars with his name already something like “Duterte for 2016“, Rody for President“, “Duterte 2016, Ato ni Bai“, “Digong for President” and many others.
I am wondering though if he also will ban the smoking all over the Philippines. I’m not sure what the smokers think of not smoking wherever they want. Here in Davao, you can smoke at the designated area the businesses have. For smokers I advise you to follow the law here if you don’t want to be just like that foreigner that was forced to swallow the cigarette butt in-front of the business owner. I wonder what the cigarette company thinks of him running for president? They might pay big money for campaign against Duterte. I’m pretty sure they are not happy of Duterte running the country and cut the profit of their business. We’ll see in the next few months what will the cigarette do.
I am really encouraging the Filipino people to vote for Duterte. This country needs a tough leader. I am also calling for the people of Mindanao to vote for him. It’s time for the Mindanaoan to have a voice. Take a look at all the improvements in the country, it’s all focused in the Luzon area.
Vote for: “RODY DUTERTE for President 2016”, “DUTERTE – CAYETANO 2016”
