President Marcos was the Best President of the Philippines?

38 posts in this topic

I get even sucks because of the F***ing answers of the filipino that Marcos is the best president in the philippines and Cory started the corruption?
 
Sorry but Marcos is and will always be the worst president the Philippines ever had. A lot of young people, who were not born yet during martial law, thinks he is thr best but no, he is not. A lot of false claims regarding his "accomplishments" were being circulated by revisionsists who wanted to coverup the truth. But a simple 15 minutes research would reveal the lies behind these claims:

1. Pinakamayang Bansa sa Asia? False. The Philippines, however, was 2nd to Japan in East Asia, not whole Asia, and that was before Marcos. The Philippine economy started its decline during the term of Marcos and was at the bottom near the end of his dictatorship. It was during Marcos when the Philippines was branded as the "Sick man of Asia".

2. Kaunahang nagkaroon nang Airport sa Asia? False. The oldest airport in Asia was in Thailand. The first airport of the Philippines was opened in 1937, not during Marcos' dictatorship.

3. Kaunanhang nagkaroon nang Train sa Asia? False. The oldest railway in asia was built in India. The Philippines had its first railway in 1892, not during Marcos' dictatorship.

4. No.1 tayo sa pag export nang Rice at Sugar sa buong mundo? False. The Philippines is a rice producing country but it never exported rice. We import rice to supplement our production because it is not enough. Again, we never exported rice, in fact, we are one of the biggest importers of rice. We did exported sugar but definitely not number one. Marcos created monopoly on sugar and our sugar industry collapsed and started its decline during his term.

5. Walang Droga at Bawal ang inuman sa kalsada? False. Drugs was never eliminated during Marcos' dictatorship. "Mag-inuman sa kalsada" was also not totally eliminated.

6. Bawal ang mga Dayuhan na Bumili ng Lupa sa Pilipinas? True...But. Foreigners cannot own land in the Philippines until now. Which is not actually a good thing as it is limiting our economic growth and foreign investments coming into the country. This is not an accomplishment, you silly Marcos loyalists.

7. Ang palitan USD 1.00 = PHP 1.50? So what? That does not mean the Philippines is almost as rich as the US. In fact, during Marcos, it became USD 1.00 = PHP 19.0, which is actually the fastest depreciation of the peso against the dollar in Philippine history. Philippine GDP was merely at an average of 20 billion dollars during his term. Compare that today which is at around 250 billion dollars.

8. Ang tanging Presidente na hindi gumagamit ng kodigo tuwing nagtatalumpati dito sa atin at kahit sa labas ng Bansa? False...and, so what? Past presidents also did the same. They don't boast about it as it is not a superhuman ability. Any monkey today can do impromptu speech. Marcos has videos where he has a "kodigo". Look for it in youtube.

Add to these the fact that he placed the Philippines under Martial law in more than a decade, extending his term illegally. He assigned Imelda Marcos, his wife, as minister of human settlement, which is nepotism. The bulk of the debt we are paying today is actually accumulated during his term. He was a convicted murderer who's sentence was reversed due to a technicality, not absence of guilt.

Most of those who claim that the Philippines was better off during Marcos' dictatorship where not yet born during his term nor experienced martial law. So, how would they know?

I would know because I am a martial law baby. After people power then the decline that you mentioned became obvious. It is true that Marcos is not perfect but he was the one who catapulted philippines as one of the best in Asia if not the world. Poor people loved him, rich people hated him. Who manipulated the downfall or Marcos? Ask the elitist of todays society.

@ ashley carlos

 

tanong lang po, buhay na ba kayo noon ?

ano ba ang ginawa sa inyo ni marcos ?

lahat ba ng tao na buhay noon panahon ni marcos ay pinahirapan ?

basta na lang ba binabaril o pinapatay ang mga makita nila sa kalye ?

sino ba talaga ang galit lang sa mga marcos, lahat ba ng pilipino sa mundo noon panahon ni marcos ay galit sa kanya?

ano ba ang pinagkaiba o nagawa ng mga Aquino ng pumalit sila ?

 

lagi ko na lang naririnig na sinasabi nila, kasi hindi pa kayo buhay noon ! buhay na ako noon, masaya kami naglalaro ng piko at habulan sa kalsada noon,hindi naman kami na-harrass ng pulis o militar, wala din reklamo mga magulang ko kay marcos pati na mga kapitbahay namin.dami nga metro aide noon at walang ginawa kung hindi magwalis at magkalburo ng gilid ng banketa.

 

lumaki ako noon panahon ni marcos, bata pa ako ng ideclare ang martial law,college na ako ng mapatalsik si marcos

nasa Edsa 1 din ako noon, sumisigaw ng "tama na, palitan na" habang si Cory ay nasa Cebu ata, nasa Channel 4 kami ng gabing umalis si Marcos

ngayon iniisip ko, ano nga ba ang ginawang masama sa akin ni marcos...( wala !!!)

 

sino ba talaga ang nakinabang ng husto sa Edsa 1 ( Lopez ba ? Aquino ba ? Coquangco ba ? yun mga gahamang Politiko ?)

 

madami pang tanong, dapat lang bukas ang isip at kailangan suriin mabuti kung talaga nga ba napakasama ni Marcos or the best president of the philippines nga.

 isa itong article na nasagasaan ko sa panghahalungkat sa internet.. maganda rin segurong mai-share at nang mabasa nyo rin.. ..

http://www.ourknowledge.asia/our-knowledge-blog/which-philippine-president-caused-the-downfall-of-the-philippines-economy

 

Magandang info nga yan nakita mo sir Ahrlee...isa rin kasing evidence ang economic indicators ng bansa sa pagkilatis ng kakayahan ng presidenteng pamunuan ng tama ang bansa. Yun nga lang, kailangan din i-consider yung "economic times" na "inabutan" ng mga presidente ng Pilipinas, kasi pwedeng sa panahon ng isa eh masagana ang global economy samantalang sa panahon ng iba eh may recession o kaya may economic slump.

 

Sa tingin ko kasi, bago pa man din makipag-compete ang Pilipinas eh kailangan munang ayusin ang internal problems ng bansa. Nasa bawat Filipino naman yan eh, at wala sa presidente, kasi ang mga tao ang nagde-decide kung sino ang gusto nilang mahalal (or else, bakit pa naging demokratiko ang Pilipinas). Perhaps there's still an asterisk after Marcos's name as far as being the best president in Philippine history, however, I don't disagree with the fact that he outperformed the other presidents by class alone.

Subsob na kasi ang ating bansa at lugmok na lugmok na sa utang dahil sa mga walang konsensiyang nakaupo! Kaya lahat ng bago sa position eh hindi na din maiahon sa putik ang ating bansa! Sana dumating ang panahon na saluhin tayo ng ibang bansa at tanggalin sa pwesto lahat ng magnanakaw. Makabayan din naman ako pero kung pumayag siguro sa panahon ni Cory na kuhain tayo ng America eh sana amerikano na lahat ng kababayan natin :)

My opinion is that Marcos is not the best President the RP had, but He did accomplish several feats. It's hard to compare, because as time changes iba-iba na yung situation, yung parameters para sa comparison ay pa.bago-bago din. Even if Marcos was ressurected today and be the president again, he would have a very difficult time in managing the country today due to complications that the tide of history has brought upon our country. :D

What I think is, because of our foreleaders, the path Marcos is going to take was already paved. What he did was took advantage of these aspects and turned it concrete. That in itself is a feat to turn plans into concrete things.

One more thing pansin ko one that affect the thinking of the children of this generation is the media.....accdg kasi sa ibang research ko may mga nangyari noon na hindi rather na alter ng media kaya ang labas eh parang ang sama ni marcos 

 

and one other thing....ung mga ibang taong nagsasabing masama or takot kay marcos i think un tlga ung mga kriminal kasi kaya ayaw nila ng isa pang marcos kasi natatakot sila na pag may isa pang marcos matanggal sila sa katungkulan...un lang base sa research at studies ko

Actually lumaki ako dati na takot kay Marcos. But then when I started researching about his works I noticed that all his plan have one thing in common, to modernize the Philippines.

Marcos is not the best president of the Philippines. Hindi porket hindi natin naexperience yung pagmamarahas ni Marcos e OK na ang lahat. Isipin din natin ang censorship na pinatupad niya nun. Malamang makakapaglaro tayo sa kalsada and all is well and good satin kasi hindi naman nakakaabot satin ang mga nangyayari sa ibang panig ng Pilipinas. At hindi din naman tayo makapagvoice ng dissent in the first place kasi pag against ka lagot ka na. The vision was there but his means did not justify his ends.

Ang pilipino is one of the most disciplined race in the world.... Kapag nasa ibang bansa sila. Kasi takot na baka makulong. Pero kapag nasa sariling bansa eh ubod ng yabang at walang disiplina. Kaya kung may maghigpit man, as long as wala kang ginagawang kasalanan eh safe ka naman. Nuong panahon ko nga eh 8y/o ako mag-isa akong namamasahe at pumupunta sa mga sinehan. Ngayon, may makagagawa pa ba nyan?

Marcos didn't deserve to be the best, his dictatorship manipulated all of the history records within his term, he destroyed the worst, the killings, the corruption etc.

all we can see was the best of him,thats why many of us believes hes a good president. But hes not.

Anyone can say their piece when it comes to who's the best president. But avoid saying anything if you yourself did not experience those things under that same president. Most of us is hearsay lang ang alam. It won't be credible if we say something about a past president eh ni hindi ka pa yata buhay nun. Mas kapani paniwala kapag ikaw mismo ang nakakaranas ng buhay sa termino ng isang presidente. Pero syempre dipende yan. Kung kasama ka sa mga guminhawa then of course puro praises ka pero kung isa ka sa mga napag-trip-an nuon then talo ka.

I have to disagree with this statement. During Marcos' dictatorship, the rich people used the Philippine Constabulary to oppress the poor people. My family was a victim of this kind of abuse.

He is not the best but not the worst though,napakaraming bagay ang nagawa nya para maiayos ang pilipinas pero sabi nga napakaraming namatay noon dahil sa pinapatay daw ang hindi sumunod o gumawa ng krimen kaya siguro tahimik noon dahil takot ang tao
