“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

Is Duterte The Worst Philippine President Ever?

A review of recent Philippine Presidents clearly shows we have had some good presidents, 
some not so good but some really bad!
The WORST Presidents in Contemporary Philippine History?
"It's a useless life that's not consecrated to a great ideal.It's like a stone wasted on the field w/out becoming a part of an edifice."
RIZAL
Objectively, isn't Ferdinand Marcos the most worthy candidate for worst President? Maybe the young have no memory of the brutal years of martial law regime, his silencing the free press, his dictatorial control, the imprisonment, torture, murder and disappearance of thousands and his shameless plunder of the nation's treasury.
Ferdinand Marcos : "He might have started as a hero 
but ended up as a crook.” 
Singapore's Former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew
"Over the next decade, Marcos’s cronies and immediate family would tiptoe back into the country, one by one – always to the public’s revulsion and disgust, though they showed that there was nothing that hidden money and thick hides could not withstand." 
From Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew’s book “From Third World to First” 
Here’s the tally of victims for the Marcos dictatorship:
70,000 incarcerated
35,000 tortured
3,200 murdered
Yep, Marcos holds the record: 3, 200 people killed.
The Marcos children must be very happy. Duterte appears on the brink of replacing their father, the late dictator, as the country's worst president!
Is Duterte now a candidate for the WORST president ever title?
Although Duterte has only been in office for  432 days, it is hard to go anywhere and not hear that he is the worst ever Philippine president. 
EQ Poll:Who is the WORST ever Philippine president?
(conducted on EQPost Twitter): Sept 2, 2017
Marcos: 21%
Erap: 4%
Arroyo: 4%
Duterte: 71% 
Base: 826 votes (unduplicated)
16 million Pinoys voted for him. After 432 days, we have a bully and a butcher, 7,000+ EJKS and  the peace of the graveyard. 
What's NEXT?
Polls show that the drug war remains immensely popular, but a similar majority say they are against all the killings. Critics of Mr. Duterte’s methods say this is a war against the poor, because no drug lords, or politicians alleged to be protecting them, have been punished. From NYT
“Cowardice rightly understood begins with selfishness and ends with shame.”

"Like Father, Like Son!
Warning to Global Pinoys:#Duterte #Marcos Combination: Worst Possible Combination! Hellx2!☠️
“(Returning to) Malacañang would be a great help” Marcosa
PLEASE PASS THIS IMPORTANT PART OF PHILIPPINE HISTORY TO YOUR FRIENDS, SO WE WILL NOT FORGET...
