PDInquirer/ Letter to the editor: On voting for alternatives

…Kapatiran is a whiff of fresh air blowing into our polluted political environment. I call on the Filipino electorate to vote for these three if only to spite our present crop of so-called political leaders.

Perhaps, there is something good we can still derive from the coming democratic exercise…

PDInquirer/ Opinion: Conrado De Quiros - LOSERS

…a miracle was about to happen in this country. Who knows, he said, we may yet work a quiet revolution before these elections are over. Well, the way Kapatiran is rapidly pricking media’s and the public’s attention, who knows indeed. My mind harked back to a mission someone undertook a couple of millennia ago. The mission seemed far more impossible. That was the ridiculous quest of a carpenter’s son and his 12 fishermen alalays to change the world. The spectacle they offered sent the important men of the time scoffing and laughing their heads off.

But, lo and behold, those “losers” did change the world.
