let's celebrate!!! today is our independence day! for more than 100 years we have been free from spanish colonisation.
but lemme ask you something.. do you think we are completely free? yes, we are not under foreign dictatorship anymore. no more spanish, japanese or american government. but what do we have now? do we have the so-called freedom? do you think just because you can do whatever you want to do in a 'democratic' country you are free? it's a big NOOOO!!!! every Filipino is a captive of a corrupt government official. every Filipino is a slave of a nothing-but-pain-in-the-ass politician. Filipinos are victims of their own leader/s. We are prisoners of their own interests.
now tell me, is there anything worth celebrating today? i think the only thing that the Filipino people are happy about during independence day is because it's a non-working holiday... it's a rest day that's all. certainly not because of independence..
