Moving on as one color. Poster for the new government.

As a new government taking shape, people are having their own set of expectations and all but we must remember that the elections are over and that we should all move on.
Support the incoming government but never too hopeful.
A Cory phenomenon is just what any politician could hope for.
It is decent of Noynoy to revive traditions as it is nothing but a respectful gesture despite his public hatred for our incumbent president. Hope he plants the seeds of reconciliation and not more divisions in the already broken Philippine politics.
He may not be perfect either but I think he will do well as promised.
The government is not the only solution. We our own solution. This dependent mentality is what makes the poor poorer.
Welcome to the new government. Sulong Pilipinas!

Gibo’s edge over the other contenders

“They want genuine change.
How can you have a genuine change when you do not have a road map or a platform?
How can you have genuine change if you sow the seeds of division now?
How can you reconcile when right now you are attacking people?
After you prosper, you expect the person to make up with you just because you say so. I don't think so.
We must start now on the road to genuine change and reform.” - Gibo Teodoro -
Teodoro plans to improve the quality of education, build infrastructures and give free medicines particularly to the poorest of the poor.
“We deserve good international standing because we are good Filipinos, not because we are mendicants to the rest of the world. We deserve food security. We need to capacitate our local governments to give basic services to our people. We need a sustainable and principled peace based on the rule of law in each and every part of the country.” “Perhaps I am going to be elected for, if not to make this country better. It is not for ou…

Gibo is not Gloria

“One thing that makes Atty. Gibo Teodoro stand out among the other candidates, including Sen. Gordon, is his realistic principles and platform. A very good indication of how realistic Atty. Gibo is: He never claims nor promises to eliminate corruption in government, instead he proposes ways on how to minimize corruption. Given the current structures in our society and our value system, it is impossible to totally eliminate corruption.It is only possible to minimize it as Atty. Gibo also believes. Why? Because our value system permits for the predisposition for corruption not only among government officials but also in each and every one of us. Lastly, he's the sole candidate who's running under positive campaign. No mudslinging, No bashing and blaming. Gibo introduces us into a new world of Politics. A constructive and not a destructive. Gibo is not Marcos nor Gloria. Each has their own style of leadership. Each has their own unique character, behavior, attitude, intelligence.…

What Gibo, JFK and Obama have in common

Saw this on Facebook and I think this is worth sharing. It came with the following description:G1BO's inspiring and charismatic leadership reminds us of Ninoy Aquino in the Philippines and JFK, Jr. of the United States. The unanimous choice of colleges and universities across the archipelago, including UP, ATENEO, UST, PISAY & La Salle among others; not since OBAMA has there been a surge of millions of new votes all coming from the youth. Is a future camelot at hand in the Philippines with a G1BO administration?To know more about him:

He is NOT tainted with corruption or any scandal.
I loved him so much that I decided to create a music video/campaign for him using my favorite computer game, The Sims 2. With the inspiring song “Lipad” by Rivermaya, I decided to incorporate elements of the plane, him interacting with the commoners, and adding his strongest points as subtitles all throughout, I proudly present to you the

Because he could really need a little more exposure.
Even my own brother has told me to stop campaigning for him because the odds are that he will lose, given the figures that the surveys show and the fact that the voting public is mostly made up of people that (let’s just say) don’t belong to the thinking class and who only depends on the mainstr…

Great Birthday Gift: Election 2010 Poster for my idol

A newfound friend via asked if he could quote me for his poster. This is how our conversation went:
And yes, that’s me replying with the line “hindi laban… lipad.” And it is true that I actually changed my profile pic to a great photo of Sir Gibo. He ringed me up for my permission and I gladly said yes and I asked his permission if I could disseminate this and he nodded just the same. A cool birthday gift if you must say.
And as the Black Eyed Peas song goes:
Let’s cast amnesia. Forget about all that evil. The evil that they feed ‘ya!

Gibo’s Credentials Part 2: Manila Standard Today Report

By Fel V. Maragay

[Gilberto] Teodoro, a bar topnotcher and master of laws holder from Harvard University, believes he has the credentials and leadership qualities needed to unify the Filipinos and steer the country on the path of peace and prosperity.
“I can give a lot of balance to things. I can look at things in perspective. I know the long-term structure and institutional requirements of the country.
And perhaps because of my experience of being in both the opposition and the administration, I have the quality of making people work together.
I have credibility with a lot of people of diverse political persuasions,” he told staff members of another daily.

After passing the bar, Teodoro worked as a lawyer with the law office of former Justice Secretary Estelito Mendoza. He served as congressman of Tarlac for three consecutive terms. It was a measure of his leadership that he became chairman of the Nationalist People’s Coalition and head of the party’s contingent in the House of Repre…

Gibo’s Credentials Part 1: Manila Standard Today Report

By Fel V. Maragay
If the country’s president were elected by participants in political forums, Lakas-Kampi standard bearer Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro, Jr. would emerge as the runaway winner.
Teodoro has been wowing the audiences in the live debates with his rivals in the presidential derby organized by various groups.
At 46, he is the youngest among the front running presidential contenders.

He has stood out in every forum because of his wit, intelligence, deep grasp of issues, eloquence and vision of governance. He is also perceived as a man of integrity who has never been linked to any scandal in government.
As a public servant, Teodoro earned a reputation for frugality and prudence in the use of resources. He imbibed this virtue from the examples of his father, the late Gilberto Teodoro Sr. who, as administrator of the Social Security System, safeguarded the funds and assets of the SSS with unequaled zeal and was the only official of the Marcos authoritarian regime who resisted the a…

What are the chances of Gilberto Gibo Teodoro winning?

By Manny Mogato
MANILA - The Philippines' former defense chief, Gilberto "Gibo" Teodoro Jr, remains confident of catching up and even overtaking the frontrunners in the race for the presidency in May, banking on the administration's vast network and resources.
Here are some questions and answers on Teodoro and his prospects:
HOW LIKELY IS TEODORO TO WIN?Difficult to say. Teodoro's rating remain poor, with the latest opinion surveys last month placing him a distant fourth in the field of 10 presidential candidates. He has a rating of 5 percent against 45 percent for the frontrunner Senator Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, his cousin.
But analysts say it is too early to establish a trend four months away from the actual casting of ballots.
Some have said the presidential elections on May 10 could now be narrowed down to the top four candidates on the basis of their grassroots network, logistics and financial resources as well as immense popularity.
They also …

Why Vote For Gibo?

The man has the brain of his own and he is definitely better than anybody else. He can prove that positive politics could really reign in the country where trapo officials are given more favor by the media.

2010 Elections: Presidentiable Interview of Gilberto Teodoro | ANC Leadership Forum

Gilberto Teodoro Presidentiable Interview Countdown to 2010 by jaysee In the Interview, he answers Ricky Carandang’s questions as mild as “Secretary, you’re a very thoughtful person and you don’t give in to drama, you don’t sound like a politician, why are you running as a president?” to which he replies that he has been lured by the administration coalition, league of mayors and governors and the provincial board members. Not bad for a recommendation.But what struck me most is his willingness to face judgement by affiliation to stand on what he thinks is right rather than trash the government and win sympathy from the mass as what Chiz Escudero is doing. He was asked about how the recent US elections relates to him as there is the parallelism that whatever John McCain does, he is always linked to the unpopular former Pres. George Bush and him being linked to Pres. Arroyo. “Are you afraid of being John McCain?”He replies, “No. Dito ako naninindigan, dito ako naninilbihan. Hindi nama…
