I just got back from Singapore. It’s my first time there and I found the place very (well) perfect. It’s beautiful! Their buildings. Their parks. Their train stations. Everything! I have not seen a single garbage around. Kudos to you Singaporean neighbors.
But while looking at all the grandeur of Singapore, I got mad. Not at Singaporeans but to our own Philippine government.
The Philippines has so much potential.
We used to be one of the best in Asia. (Keyword: used to be.)
I’m mad because how can a government who taxed its citizens more than 32% of their salary not attained what Singapore reached?
I don’t believe our country is poor.
We just have to remove a LOT of corrupt people in the government. Those heartless, greedy, animals.
It breaks my heart every time I see a senior citizen climbs the stairs at the MRT. Because neither the elevator nor the escalator is functioning. Can’t our 32% fix that?
I hate it.
I feel being robbed monthly by paying my taxes. Why?
There are continuous budget cuts on the state universities.
EDSA is still a mess.
And these damn garbage of a train LRT and MRT.
Yes. I’m very not willing to pay my taxes.
Why should I?
So these corrupt government officials can buy their mansions, luxury cars or send their children abroad to study / party?
No thanks. I am not your slave.
Please Philippines. Let us choose our next President / Senators wisely this coming election.
Let’s all feel bad for our country. Let us all feel bad for ourselves.
We definitely deserve better.
