VP Binay, you should change tack now. If there is nothing to hide, face those accusers. But if you have lots to hide, better back off from your Presidential ambition, admit wrong doing and ask for forgiveness from the public.

My former Prof. in undergrad Political Science subject in UP Diliman in the 80s, Dr. Segundo "Doy" Romero, asked yesterday in his fb wall, "Is Mar Roxas inclusive, principled, competent, and humble as appropriate to the Philippine Presidency?"
He then defined those four concepts.

Here is anothernoble project worth supporting. Our friends in Jakarta, new independent think tank Center for Indonesian Policy Studies (CIPS) is launching a big project -- to develop NGO-administered community schools that will provide low cost but good quality education for some 36 M poor Indonesian kids. They are seeking donations for this project. In their special site for this project, CIPS wrote,
I admire and support the CIPS for this project. Friends and readers, please consider giving a donation for this project. Thank you.

What about good governance? For me, Big Government = bad governance There is little or no justification why bureaucracies, regulations, permits, taxes, fees, fines, mandatory contributions, etc. should be as many as possible.
In the absence of a political party in this country that advocates limited and small government, free marketers like me can only compromise with candidates or political parties that somehow advocate more economic freedom and less monopolies, oligopolies, which are always created by government via Constitutional restrictions and franchising system.
This article by my former Prof. in a Political Science subject in UP Diliman in the 80s, Dr. Segundo "Doy" Romero, is another sharp analysis and can help guide voters who among the different political parties and factions can advance more economic freedom and who can oppose it. Sir Doy posted this in his fb wall, reposting with his permission.
