I’ve been a witness to the two people powers and one mob power, and after that latter “people power” it was tarnished by the people who represents itself. In short, another people power today to bring down a Supreme Court Chief Justice is not a very good idea to think with.
I’m not against people power, but, after 30 years of my life seeing these events, I think the so-called people power became no more than just another political weapon to oust someone. And in this fragile democracy we have and how majority of our people vote in elections, another people power will surely result to a mob rule. Sadly, a mob rule with PNoy as it’s head. We should remember that we live in a democratic state yet we have rules, laws and a constitution to abide with. And another revolution just to oust a Chief Magistrate will surely weaken the judiciary branch.
Pnoy should learn to restrain himself and respect the Impeachment process, because that’s the rule and the proper venue to take out a very high official. The President himself should learn to respect the process. It is now in the Senate and let the justice roll in accordance to our constitution. He should let the Senate as an Impeachment Court to do its job, and he, do his own homework.
Majority of the people are now sick and tired for this calls of People Power. Little by little it became the voice of the mob than the “true” voice of the people. We are becoming the laughingstock of the international community due to this call.
We people should respect the Impeachment hearings, even if it is so tedious for there in so short-cuts to this process. Every one should respect the system in placed, we should respect the Senator-Judges and accept their verdict weather it’s an acquittal or conviction. For we people not even the Chief Justice nor the President himself is above the law and our constitution. And another People Power will result to a mob rule and weaken our constitution.
