The quest for a good leader: Can the Philippines find someone who can finally lead its people to victory?
The Philippines can't have such a kind of leader if the majority of its people allow the incompetent ones, recycled, and the crooked and sanamagans to rule over them. In a democratic country such as the Philippines, it is the people who will decide for what's best for them. But unless the majority of the Filipinos learn to choose for the right leaders and support them, the Philippines, as a country, remains where it has been for a long time. Great nations are products of great leaders and great leaders are made by the people, not born.
In these trying times of our nation's history, a good and effective leader is a necessity. He must build up a strong military to back up the growing economy. He must abolish partisan politics and create a centralized common party instead by which the people freely choose for who will govern them. He must acknowledge and tolerates religious beliefs or affiliations his citizens might be exercising. He must bring justice to whom it is due. He must be humble, knows how to bow down when needed, and above all, one who is a dealer of hope.
