|It's already 830m. I should have been sleeping at this time of the day. But just like the majority of the Filipino people, I opted to stay tune to TV to see what's gonna happen to the case that is considered as the Philippines' trial of the century.
I am not a fan of Erap, politically. In fact, I did not vote for him. None in our family did. But I admire his humbleness and his ability to 'feel' for those less fortunate kababayans
. He is no Saddam-Hussein though, just a modern-day Robinhood. LOL Maybe, some of you will get disappointed in me but I can't help it. I still believe in what the so-called common-tao
believes:"Erap, para sa Mahirap." Oo, magnanakaw si Erap pero hindi kasing garapal ng mga Arroyo.
Now that the trial is about to come its end, it made me remember those people behind the controversial Erap impeachment: Tess Oreta, Hilario Davide, Manuel Villar, Teofisto Guingona, Loren Legarda. Ano nang nangyari?!?!
I am very anxious of what is going to be the verdict on the former president. I feel for those justices whose hands lie the future of ERAP. It's like catch-22. "Damn if I do it, damn if I don't." Come to think of it, if ERAP gets acquitted, I'm sure many ERAP allies will start questioning the legitimacy of PGMA's presidency. Kaya kakaba-kaba si ate at pina-cancel lahat ng lakad.
If he gets convicted, may God forbid, but it's gonna be chaos. There's gonna be civil disobedience. An impeachment is entirely different from conviction. Imagining the picture of former President of the Republic of the Philippines joining one big room with criminals and scumbags in NBP is too disgusting.
I am not a fan of ERAP. But I wish for his freedom. He already suffered enough. He's already 70. He is already in the twilight zone of his life. God Bless Erap.
