Tasting of Each Other's Medicine

Uncle Dick and Viktor

“Aragoncillo passed Cheney’s reports on Macapagal-Arroyo, some of which were obtained from National Security Agency intercepts to (Joseph) Estrada, a political opponent of Macapagal-Arroyo….Estrada was planning a coup against Macapagal-Arroyo with US support.”

Rad also, "Credit should go to Mike Arroyo".

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. (Matthew 7:2)

If there is anything positive that can be drawn from the turmoils of these last two administrations is maybe the realization that "People Power" can't simply be abused and misused for one's own selfish political motives.

How did GMA and her "planners" felt when they were planning for the downfall of Erap then, and how did they felt when Erap attempted several times to topple her now? In like manner, how did Erap felt when he and his cohorts planned the failed downfall of PGMA, and how did he felt back then when he was victimized by a false "Power Power"?

May both of them (and their "opportunistic" supporters) realize that because of their selfish motives (and most probably driven also by the prodding of their circle of influential oligarchs), they are holding the nation's political progress captive. May they set our nation free from their grip by giving way to non-traditional political leadership. Our nation is not short of potential good leaders with integrity.
