Is President Rodrigo Duterte A Political Genius?

By Alon Calinao Dy: Someone told me that those intelligent people have less friends but that is not always the case with President Rodrigo Duterte as he has millions of friends around the world. 

In the last blog I publised to social media, someone asked me, "hey, Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, why is it that your president is always looking for a fight?" 

President Duterte has a strong mindset and values. It is true that he is exercising his freedom of speech and at the same time he thinks differently from other people especially from those corrupt politicians. 

The truth is Filipinos do not want leaders who try to please the world for the sake of being popular or simply to look good to the United Nations. I call these people as hypocrites who are not worthy to be the good leaders in the Philippines. 

I believe President Duterte is a political genius because he sees more to life. He gives hope to the poor people that if Filipinos want to achieve the real change we're all hoping for, perhaps, this is the right time for us to be united and punish those corrupt politicians who are involved in illegal drugs. 

One characteristic I really admire to our beloved president is that he is independent aside from being a strong leader. I don't regret it when I gave my full support to the president because I see Duterte as a natural-born leader who would do anything for his country and for his people.

I know that some people may not agree with my opinion, but I have no fear in saying that PRESIDENT DUTERTE IS A POLITICAL GENIUS. While others are trying to throw him out from his office, the president has good plans for this country and for Filipinos ahead of time. He knows that being a president is a gift from God, it's now his obligation to serve the best interests of the country and its people.
