Important Note: We the supporters are not here to beg and please everybody to vote and appreciate Mar Roxas especially for those who doesn't really like him at all. We can still enlighten and convince others only if there is still chance. Constructive Criticisms are WELCOME but be careful with some allegations that doesn't have any basis at all. Expect it as well that supporters will also defend Mar as what you are doing to YOUR IDOL. Be also careful for defending and glorifying other government officials which is already off topic. You already posted the adoration of just one leader in numerous thread which is always off topic.

Example of OFF TOPIC
Panalo na si Duterte :D He deserves it anyway.

STOP personal attack and childish post to the supporters of Mar Roxas such as the following who posted here

Move on din pag may time..nagconcede na nga di ba.. alam kong masakit tanggapin ang katotohanan para sa isang tao na idol natin. but the MAJORITY had spoken. From Aparri to Jolo..hanggang overseas..LANDSLIDE..That means..ramdam nang karamihan ang kapalpakan ng administrasyon..Haven't you noticed? Noong tumakbong VP si Mar, wala, talo pa rin, panalo ang Presidente niya si Pnoy. Ngayon naman Presidente siya, TALO pa rin, panalo naman ang VP niya..hahah..Obviously, kokonti lang pala bilib sa kanya. konti lang ata ang elite at desenteng tao sa Pinas hahaha....wag na sana maging bitter anyway lahat naman tayo mabibiyayaan sa changes...
.unlike noong past administration puro blame ang naririnig mo ni Panot.

^Exactly sis Leven, we'll leave it to your imagination na lang since hanggang dun nyo na lang malalaman magiging reaction namin  ;D. Anyway move on na guys, ganyan talaga buhay.

Move on na mga kapatid. Di makakatulong yan.

Wow just wow! Tapos na election at nagconcede na si Mar pero marami pa rin pa lang di makamove-on.  ::)


Also AVOID NAME CALLINGS
Another posts here that shows ATTITUDE PROBLEM so stop doing the same.

Oh baka naman wala lang kaibahan ang martards at dutertards? Delusional lang na decent daw yung isa.

Oh sis, I just couldn't agree with you more! Puro Duterte ang bukang bibig ng Mar FANATICS dito.
We're talking about Mar and his SOCE. Balik nang balik kay Digong ang usapan. Lol yung totoo, kayo ata yung Dutertard and not "us" ;)

You guys were BEGGING FOR CHANGE!!!! But this is NOTHING if you don't have sense of maturity and decency in posting. Be educated and use GMRC. And you are no longer different to the other government officials that you loathe/hate and used to bash. I believe the way you describe your hate to the other government officials especially former candidates is definitely just the SAME as YOU or even worst.

If you want us to respect you as a person/forum member and your opinion just EARN if from us.

MOVE ON!!! your hate to Mar Roxas and as your idol said it is better to move forward.

"No man has been so savagely misjudged for the wrongs he never committed. Mar is sorry that he cannot stop storms. No man has ever been so vilified for the negligence of others; nor been so maltreated and betrayed by allies, that surely, he will trust his enemies more if he wins. This man cares not a whit for money, and it is not because he happens to be rich because it is a family trait of the Roxases to care nothing for wealth and everything for the public service. It is a curse that has killed them early." -- Teddy Locsin, Jr.

@mei-mei, about fake fb accounts i think it's really obvious na marami talaga sila pero im sure meron din ang LP di lang ganun karami tapos nagdomino effect na dahil sa magagandang promises ni duterte... Kahit siguro nagready ng maaga si mar sa social media somehow sira na yung name niya because:
1. LP siya / Daang matuwid - mga pagkukulang ni pnoy sa mata ng karamihan pagkukulang niya na rin.
2. Blunders niya either true or gawa gawa, because we all know marami siyang kamalian at marami ring pinalaki ng lang ng kalaban just like "Romualdez ka Aquino siya" video.. :P
3. PR Team
3. Mayaman siya..

Another topic... nalaman nyo ba yung binastos na RORO sa area ng luneta? nagchant, nangduro adn worst may tinapon na malagkit sa windshield nya.. ang babastos talaga... hmmmp!!! at ende troll yan, totoong kwento...

Aaminin ko siguro lame reason ito pero isang bagay kung bakit rin ako naaalarma akong maging Presidente si D kasi natatakot ako sa ibang mga supporters niya eh! Kahit yung sa social media pa lang eh! Iba yata ang nangyari sa katagang "Change is coming" kampanya pa lang nagtransform na to other person yung mga tao kahit siguro yung mga tinitingala mo eh! Kala ko ba isang bagay they want that D to be Pres because of peace and order? Eh sa kanila pa lang may lead na eh! there is something fishy on his presidency. I cannot trust it with him. Kaya on election day ayokong magsuot ng color yellow o maglabas ng kahit anong indication na I will still vote for MarLeni. Balak nga sana isama ni hubby ang baby namin for some reason pero I strongly suggest sa kanya na huwag talaga just to be safe lang.

@mei mei, I had a question for you sa last thread that I think was overlooked, ang init kasi ng usapan. Hinanap ko pa talaga yung post kala ko nawala na. I'm elated someone here has a background in economics who can actually comment about this, I'm really curious to know what you'd say. Let me repost na lang:

Here it is, and thanks for giving you
^mei-mei, since you're an economist, maybe you can comment on something I've heard and read. I've been wanting to get insights of an actual economist about this. Our economy is doing well right now because of GMA, she focused on the economy and Aquino is actually taking credit of what GMA's hard work.

http://www.manilatimes.net/the-economy-is-strong-despite-the-president/81318/


@hunny ally, The Manila Times is the only one I've cited because it's the first one I could find as reference at 3.00 in the morning (I was rushing to post my question because I needed to sleep na). But, there are also other references and this also came up in conversations with friends. FYI, there is also an essay by GMA herself citing the growth rate of the country when it was turned over to Aquino. You can easily google other sources but here it is:

Salamat  sis purple _power.
Hinanap ko sa fb yan hindi ko nakita.
I admit isa ako sa tahimik  lang. Marami akong friends  na quiet lang din  para  peaceful  ang buhay.
Same sa pamilya ko na hindi naman active  sa social media. Pero today RORO ang nasa balota nila.
God bless the Phils.

I voted already around 6:00 am as in pumila ako ng 5:35 am para less hassle kaya kaunti ang pila.
I really check the ballot talagang bago ako nagmarka tiningnan ko mabuti if I voted right especially kay Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo. Pati na rin sa party list at lahat. Undervote ako for senators which is 11 para lang safe. tapos pinasok ko na ballot gugupitan pala manually yung receipt then I double check it again to make sure. Tutupiin pala yun before mo ihulog sa box yung receipt.

May pagka Anti Mar ang asawa ko eh  ;D kaya nung nagkwento ako sa kanya. Ah tama naman lahat sa receipt kasi si Mar ang binoto mo. Kapag iba yan naku! Oh well nagpapatawa lang naman siya.  ;D

http://www.manilatimes.net/the-economy-is-strong-despite-the-president/81318/

I answered in the previous thread. :) Reposting below my answer:

Quote
Even if I hate GMA, it is true that the economy started improving in 2009 under her. Kaya nga sa thread ni Duterte, I stated that my reason for voting (nauna na ko bumoto last month) was because I didn't want our normal cycle na "Ramos-growing economy, Erap - bagsak, Gloria - bagsak first part, bangon 2nd half, PNoy - growth" to be another cycle na babagsak na naman. I liked Duterte before but I know he's not good for economy because of his micro views of economy and him being emotional. Problema kasi nga pag galit yun nanalong president, ista-stop yun plans ng previous. Si PNoy kahit galit kay GMA, either he or whoever advised him decided to continue her economic plans. Aside from being balat-sibuyas ng pamilya nila, pagdating naman sa executive decisions, hindi sya emotional. So yes, GMA should get credit but so do PNoy. Because (1) he continued the good plans she had; (2) he improved some of them; and (3) he was actually a good face to foreign investors. They trusted him. They didn't trust GMA. During GMA's time, our corruption index was worse and kahit anong ganda ng plans nya if ayaw naman mag-invest sayo ng foreigners, it won't really take off as much as it did now.

On the economy improving no matter who the president is? That's not really true. The plans are there and they're going well. But if we lose our good image to foreign investors, they can pull out anytime. Hindi pa natin kayang buhayin ang economy natin by ourselves. Our local investments and spending are not that strong to uplift the economy just by ourselves. And with globalization, wala naman nang bansa nabubuhay ng sarili na lang sikap ngayon. Pag hindi ka naki-sakay sa gloabalization, in the end matatalo ka. Tulad ng China, Singapore, etc., malaki ang aasahan natin sa foreign investments to boost economy. OFW remittances are not sustainable and any economist knows that. Kaya kung sound ang economic advice, ang action talaga natin ay i-strengthen ang foreign investments. Importante ang image and numbers always for foreign investors.

Had I voted before, I would have voted for Gloria. I had my biases and really had a lot of hope in her because she's an economist. Since she became president, I was so engrossed in reading the economy and business news every since day because I really kept watch on what she will do. I got so disappointed in her on how dirty her government was. Very low confidence of investors cannot be denied anymore and it was embarrassing to be increasing in corruption index every year under her. Her greed was just unbelievable.

As we vote today, we must remember that no one of the candidates can ever fulfil all of their promises.  Economy doesn't take 6 years to be felt by every one. Kahit nga mga first world countries may mahihirap and nagrereklamo din hindi nila nararamdaman ang pagkayaman ng bansa nila. Government officials will mess up for sure. They're humans. As long as we see the government is trying so darn hard to actually build the country and not just use it as a "gatasan", we have to be forgiving because only looking at the faults is not helping our country at all. Sabi ko nga sa mga galit na galit sa present administration na "worst" daw, buti pa ang foreigners, they see the improvement of our country. I work in the finance sector with different nationalities. Whenever I tell them that Filipinos hate the current president and can't wait to get him out, they always say, "Why? He's doing your economy so good. You've got even a better growth rate than us/Asia/etc. He's the least corrupt we've seen."

Sometimes talaga, I hope Filipinos get to talk casually to educated/learned foreigners so their perspectives can change. Mahirap yun mga sa Pinoys or OFWs na kausap lang din yun mga foreigners na walang paki or alam sa ibang bansa tapos yun mga Pinoys pa yun mag feed sa kanila na ang pangit about sa bansa natin.

Now pa lang tatanggapin ko na yung isa dyan ang magiging Presidente. Well ganun talaga pero inaabangan ko na rin yung mga issues na ibabato sa kanya. Ayoko na macurious kung ano mangyayari but seeing his face on air nakakasuka. Yuck. I could imagine na Manila area ang unang matatarget ng gulo. Ang hindi ko masisikmura yung Vice President. Ok pa kung si Trillanes eh although doubt ako run.
