Will You Vote Bong Bong Marcos For President in 2016?

By Alon Calinao Dy: Senator Ferdinand "Bong Bong" Marcos, Jr. has followed the steps of his infamous father when he now serves the country for 34 years after the former president Marcos ousted in the public service due to martial law and later on died of a lupus disease.

Will you vote Bong Bong Marcos for President in 2016?

I have seen many social media users who are campaigning for Davao Mayor Duterte, Senators Grace Poe, Alan Peter Cayetano, Chiz Escudero, Miriam Santiago, Vice President Jejomar Binay,  Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada, and Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.

I learned a lot of positive and negative things during the reign of Ferdinand Marcos, the father of Bong Bong. Marcos loyalists claimed that if the Marcos was not ousted the Philippines right now is one of the richest countries in Asia like Singapore.

I don't want to comment about this since I don't really know what happened during the administration of Marcos. Marcos supporters blamed the Cojuangco and Aquino families and their cronies for owning big business corporations in the land.

Marcos loyalists believe that Bong Bong Marcos is the only one who can continue the good plans of his father for our beloved nation. Filipinos become frustrated over the PDAF scam that led to the apprehension of the alleged pork barrel senators Bong Revilla, Juan Ponce Enrile, and Jinggoy Estrada.

Bong Bong Marcos got the sympathy of many Filipinos from his father, just like current President Pnoy when he won for president years back because of his parents' supporters. 

As a matter of fact, there is a list of movements on Facebook campaigning for president in 2016. BongBong Marcos Loyalists Movement and BongBong Marcos United  Facebook groups have garnered many members who are expected to be Marcos supporters as well.

Well, let's see if Bong Bong Marcos will be our next president in 2016. Vice President Binay is also expected to win for president according to the latest survey. However,  'anything is possible' as people always say in street corners.
