The biggest difference is that in Philippines, we are not divided by political parties. We are divided by personality. In the Philippines, political parties are made up of individuals who are not even related by blood. In other countries, political parties are based on blood relationships. Politics in the Philippines is based on personalities, which are not based on blood relations.

It's a very democratic system. It's a very open system. It's not like the United States where you have to be a member of a particular party. It's a system where you can be a member of any party, but you have to be a member of the opposition party. I think that's one of the reasons

The Philippine government has a rather long history of corruption and mismanagement. The Philippines has had four presidents who have been impeached and convicted of corruption. In 1996, the first president to be impeached was Benigno Aquino. He was impeached for accepting a bribe of US$10 million from the Chinese government. He was convicted of corruption and sentenced to six years

The government is not transparent. In fact, it is not accountable. The president and the vice president are not accountable. The courts are not accountable. The Congress is not accountable. The Supreme Court is not accountable. The press is not accountable. The media is controlled by the government. The executive branch is not accountable.
There is no rule of law.

It's a highly complex and divided society. People have different opinions and hold different views on politics, and on the government. It's very difficult to figure out what the government is doing. I'm not sure that the government is doing anything. I have to think about the general situation. I don't have any specific agenda. I'm not trying to win any election.

The Philippines has a unique political system that is not fully developed. The country is governed by a President and a Congress that are not elected directly, but indirectly through a system of "composite" institutions that have been in place for decades. The President is elected by the people, but is not directly elected
