NO to Con-Ass

No to Conass!

"The time for amending and changing the Constitution will come. Yet that time is not now, and that process... not this way, ladies and gentlemen. Not this way. Not through a farce, a sham, and an embarrassment.

In a free country, the citizens are - and should - be open to debate. Yet our arguments and sides should always be framed by what is truthful, just, and fair. It is not sufficient or adequate to railroad the passage of this resolution if the rush and haste cannot be justified. In a free country, in a democracy, the will of the majority will always be framed by the will of the minority. There is a right time and a right place for the changes to take place knowing that those who perpetuate these changes are beyond doubt, beyond question, and have the integrity needed to challenge and amend a very integral document.

This is the spirit of consensus. It is something that is not achieved when you railroad a bill, a law, or a resolution."

NO TO CONASS! Congress, have a little shame!

Those congressmen must think that all Filipinos are stupid; that their constituents do not think; that we don't care about our country and our Constitution.

tsk tsk tsk...see PGMA will do everything just to extend her power...too bad these people are like helpers who follow instructions from their master. where in fact they should be the one protecting the constitutions and sovereign rights.

i've been reading articles about this...and it is troubling. what the heck is going on?

maraming pilipino ang naghihilakbot ang damdamin sa paspasang pagpasa ng resolusyon upang mapalitan ang ating Saligang Batas. isinagawa nila ito na hiwalay ang senado. ang mahalagang tanong dito, bakit sila nagmamadali?

what else is new? since i became "aware" of these issues, i had been fighting conasses (which had different names depending on who's the president) for several years.. now i don't even read the newspapers lol!.. and though my friends went to the street protest yesterday, i was not invited!

hay naku. parang wala na ngang kamatayan ang issue na ito. patuloy pa rin nilang iginigiit ang kanilang makasariling hangarin. kailan kaya tayo aayos?
