There’s nothing wrong with political dynasties, says Alan Cayetano

It’s “wrong, unfair” to rail against political dynasties without identifying those who are corrupt and who aren’t, reelectionist Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano told antidynasty advocates.

Cayetano has served in the same Senate with elder sister Pia since 2010, and could do so again in the next three years should he win a second six-year term in 2013.

“My advice to antidynasty advocates is to start identifying [corrupt political families]. It’s wrong, unfair and it doesn’t help when you say you’re against all dynasties but when you are asked away from the cameras, you’d identify which families are OK and which are not,” Cayetano said in a recent interview with reporters.

“If you have relatives in government and all of you are clean, isn’t that better than being the only one in government from your family but you’re quite corrupt?” he added.

 

Equal opportunity

Cayetano said the bottom line issue on political dynasties was equal opportunity in winning elections between those who have money and influence, and those who don’t.

“So how do you create a system like that in the US where one Barack Obama became president of the United States? Number one, there’s the question of fund raising in elections. Number two, the real issue is who’s corrupt and who’s not?” the senator said.

Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, himself the son and namesake of a former senator, and who chairs the Senate committee on electoral reforms, has said that his committee will conduct hearings on the pending bill against political dynasties to define what a political dynasty is.

The necessary prohibitions called for in the Constitution would logically follow once a political dynasty has been defined, Pimentel said, adding that while the bill filed by Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago has no chance of passing in time for the 2013 election, it could still be refiled in the next Congress.

Massive cheating

Pimentel himself would have shared the same Senate with his father, Aquilino Jr., had he been proclaimed senator immediately after the 2007 elections.   But it was only in 2011 when Pimentel took his seat in the Senate after Juan Miguel Zubiri resigned following reports of massive electoral cheating in Mindanao.

Zubiri has denied any participation in the fraud that supposedly benefited his candidacy.

The 2013 election is shaping up to be a free-for-all among the country’s political families.

President Aquino’s cousin, Bam, is running for the Senate with the Liberal Party-led ruling coalition.  The President’s aunt by affinity, Tingting Cojuangco, is running with the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).

UNA’s senatorial slate also includes Vice President Jejomar Binay’s daughter, Nancy; Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile’s son, Jackie; and Sen. Jinggoy Estrada’s half-brother, JV.

    Mr. Senator, political dynasty is nothing but MENTAL CORRUPTION called GREED!

    • seduceme

       Correct. Ito yong mga politiko na walang delikadesa. Kahit na sabihin nating generally good performers ang isang political clan still mas maliwanag pa sa araw ang very obvious na it is their personal interest they are serving more than that of the public. Sa totoo lang napakababa nang sahod nang mga politiko a. Problema nga sa pamilya mahirap i-manage, lalo pa kaya yong problema nang bayan?  Pero maraming gusto mag politico. Kasi being in politics gives one the clout to protect one’s business interest, or the opportunity to engage in lucrative business ventures, or worse to steal people’s money.

  • rolandtr

    Mr Senator two siblings serving in the Senate together is Coruption! It is corruption because an maturing society with a maturing political class should have the moral ascendancy of prior restraint. Even if they can win in an election they should let other serve as Senator. Why? Simply because that is a better system than having you and your sister or jingoy and jayvee serving in the Senate together..like Loi and Jingoy…that is corruption Mr Senator!

    the  constitution forbids political dynasties for whatever reason – that’s what’s wrong! honest or not, they are forbidden. please, senator cayetano: don’t change the subject.

  • captainramius

    NO its not only corruption that is the problem…. our political system past and present has not in any way solve the poverty of this country  we need to change this big time.   Political dynasty is already a cancer in the LGU levels, perhaps the voters can do something in the senate level but the towns and cities and provinces they are all controlled by the same families for decades….and heaven knows what kind of mayors and congressmen are elected one of them is a murderer who happened to be in congress, another one a convicted rapists….. the Jueteng Lords are even getting themselves legit by being elected governor .

    Enough na… its time to change and this political dynasty is the spark that will start the process of change… I for one agree with suggestion that we go by way of federal system ala Bagsamoro also….we experimented with dictatorship it did not work as its still too much power to one central govt…..

    Lets go by way of Federal Form of government…. this present system is not working…. we are in one big mess….jueteng lords getting elected. .. people with connection to jueteng getting elected in the highest positions in govts…. corruption in all levels from the barangay to the judiciary … our military and police are all tainted by corruption…. 2 honest people in customs will not stop the cancer there so is BIR…

    And our political leaders are all drunk with power thinking only their bloodlines are entitled to rule this country….not the rest of the 96 million natives like us.We need a drastic change big time.   The anger and the movement is there this will somehow create something…

  • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

    Thanks to our beloved President PNoy who gave Peter Cayetano another lease on his political life through the LP coalition. If dynasty begets dynasty, our dear leader PNoy is right to support the baby dynasty of the Cayetanos which is just in its infancy. Looking at Peter’s sister, our dear leader PNoy is perhaps reminded of the circumstances under which he was catapulted to the presidency thanks largely to the massive outpouring of sympathy for the passing of his mother. After all, Peter’s sister was also swept to the halls of the senate when the late Senator Compañero passed away. There is however no guarantee that this nascent dynasty will survive the test of time and the will of the people. But it sure deserves all the nurturing aid that Peter can muster from the state. For if every Filipino has the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, so do dynastic families that are composed of not just one but many Filipinos under one roof. Peter is commonly credited for popularizing The Balot which has pushed up the happiness index of many Filipino couples. His advocacy to promote better eyecare and eyesight for all Filipinos even landed him on primetime television of late. In his dashing tisoy looks, Peter reminds us of our proud American heritage and the Anglo-Saxon roots of our jurisprudence. If Peter fails to secure a second term in 2013, he will not be sorely missed for his pretty sister Pia will still be around to behold. But of course, two siblings are better than one as Erap is fond of saying lately.

    and may I humbly suggest:
    vote straight LP in 2013

    Mr. Senator Cayetano, Your wife is the biggest epal here in Taguig. Epalism in itself is corruption because you are using people’s money for your own interest and self gain.  How much did your wife spend using taxpayer’s money to put the ugly “L” signs all over taguig. I am guessing millions. If you have a problem with corruption, I think you should start teaching your wife not to be so EPAL.

  • kapayapaan_1900

    Just a reminder “Honorable” and kapithapithayang Senador!  “Democracy is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people”.  They elected you to craft laws.  They want to put a stop to this shameless and horrible monopoly of public offices by a few families.  Stop talking as a lawyer *dahil nasagasaan ka”.  Now I know where you stand.  Anti-dynasty law has no chance of passing in the Senate as long as there are people in that “august” body like you.  “God bless the Philippines!”.     

  • vaporub123

    well, what do you expect from a senator whose family tasted political power?your father must me turning in his grave wanting to get out and wringed your neck.the political dynasties will continue with persons right now in the senate and congress fielding families to different government elective positions until such time they themselves will fight each other thus ending the dynasty but will take a long time.the best way is to pass the anti dynasty bill which until now is pending because the person in charge of the committee is a namesake of senator  pimentel.

  • apollo agcaoili

    Political dynasties are unconstitutional. Bakit ba pinag-uusapan pa kung mabait o corrupt ang kung sino-sinong pulitiko, when lahat naman kayo ay lumalabag sa utos ng ating Saligang Batas? Mas magaling pa ba kayo sa ating Saligang Batas?

  • pilosopo4

    Senator Cayetano, the best you can do is just shut up and work hard to pass the anti-dynasty bill if you are truly a leader…regardless of whether one family is corrupt and the others are not..the issue is CONTROL OF ONE FAMILY which is not democratic in the sense, it deprives others the opportunity to govern..stop lawyering for the other so called “good” dynasties!

  • boybakal

    Political Dynasty is wrong terminology.
    There is No Dynasty in politics as they are not appointed, they are elected.
    Sovereignty resides in the people.
    People choose, people’s choice. The people is choosing among the different candidates that present good product quality as they themselves are not good.
    That’s why there is election, the people by majority elect who they want to lead and govern them.

    Families have same DNA.
    Just like a family of lawyers, family of doctors, family of criminals, there are also family of politicians.
    So we call them family of Doctors but not Doctors Dynasty as there are also rural doctors.
    Or family of criminals but not dynasty of criminals as there are also vying to be akyat bahay.
    Like us, we are family of magbabakal, but thru generations, some shifted to tanso and aluminum but still family of bakal.

    We only have wrong perception of politicians, it is in our mind.
    Again, there is No Political Dynasty but Political Family.
    Vote for Binays….they are good Political Family.

    • apollo agcaoili

      Eto definition sa online dictionary. Saan dito binabanggit ang appointed vs elected?

      dy·nas·ty

      1. a sequence of rulers from the same family, stock, or group: the Ming dynasty.

      2. the rule of such a sequence.

      3. a series of members of a family who are distinguished for their success, wealth, etc.

      These political families are the political dynasties prohibited by our Constitution. The Binays, Marcoses, Aquinos, Cayetanos, Enriles ad nauseum … they know who they are, but they choose to ignore the Constitutional imperative.

    Bingo…..you hit the jackpot.  Corruptions is the problem.  And that is why political dynasty should be eliminated because that is the root of the corruptions problem.  Tt’s quite obvious why these dynasty family are in this political system.  They know that there’s money to make.  Now, if you show some diligent and honesty in performing your duties, then it may work.  But, by the look of it, you’re just there for the money.   Nothing is being accomplished for the good of the country and the citizens.  Question for you political pundits……would you stil run if “port barrel” is remove?  If you answer still yes, then I believe it may work.  So, Mr. Cayetano, it’s your turn to show your true color……..

    When a family controls government, that is already corruption in itself! Taguig is a good example! The cities of San Juan and Makati are other good examples. And so are the Singsons and Marcos in Ilocos or the Angaras in Quezon, the Garcias in Cebu. Tell me the good in them.

    • sam_aquino

      exactly!!! : )

  • 100345roselia

     The real issue here is not graft & corruption.  Graft & corruption is JUST THE EFFECT of our political system, i.e., every Filipino who is 18 yrs. old or above whether educated or non-educated is entitled to one vote.  As long as MAJORITY OF THE ELECTORATE are living on poverty level or below, hungry, live on dole-outs & not well informed of the issues due to lack of education, we will continue to produce political dynasties.  Who is to be blamed for the political dynasties?  Us (the electorate) or the politicians?  It is like asking ourselves – who came first, the egg or the chicken?

    Do you think the senators and/or congressmen – on their own volition (already 25 years have passed since the approval of the 1987 constitution) – will enable a law to address the prohibition of political dynasty as clearly mandated in our constitution?  Parang inutusan mo ang politician to buy a hammer & encourage him/her to hammer his/her own head?  Sagot ng politician “ano ako hilo?”

  • sam_aquino

    let me help you, senator cayetano, in case you (& the others who are still trying to manipulate the definition of it), do not know the actual meaning of political dynasty…

    POLITICAL – adjective… of, pertaining to, or concerned with politics

    DYNASTY – noun…  1. a succession of rulers from the same family or line. 2. A family or group that maintains power for several generations …

    DO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN FURTHER???

    No political dynasties? Just look at Noy. Cojuangcos are in politics uninterrupted more than 60 years, as congressmen, senators, presidents. And do not tell there was no corruption. That politicians are not appointed but elected has no meaning. An elected can be corrupt as well as an appointed. And there are enough examles that show how corrupt politicians go out and push the election of their relatives, wife, children, by using power, force and money.

    MAgsasaka noong una. Maraming naging kaibigan kaya inalok na tumakbong kapitan. Nanalo naman at naging maganda ang patakbo sa kanyang baranggay. Sinuyo na tumakbong konsehal. Nanalo uli dahil sa galing bilang kapitan. Inayang tumakbong Mayor dahil sa sipag at kabaitan. Abay sinuwerteng maging Mayor. Nang matapos ang tatlong termino, tapos narin ang mga anak sa pag-aaral sa mga mamahaling pribadong skwelahan. Dahil naaliw sa pwesto sinubukang sa pagiging kongresman naman tumakbo. Yung panganay na anak pinatakbong konsehal. Parehong nanalo dahil kilala na. Nang sumunod na eleksyon tumakbo uling Mayor ang Tatay at ang anak naman ay konsehal uli. Parehong nanalo. ng tapos na ang 3 termino ng tatay, bumalik uli sya sa pagiging kongresman at ang anak naman ang pumalit sa kanyang bilang mayor. Nang matapos na ang 3 termino ng tatay yung pangalawang anak naman nya ang pinatakbong kongresman. SAmantala ng mag 3 termino na bilang mayor ang panganay na anak ang asawa naman nya ang pinatakbo nya at sya naman ay nag Governor. At ang bunso nilang kapatid ay pinatakbo naman nilang vice mayor. Galing sa mahirap ang pinagmulan nila pero umunlad ang buhay ng pumasok sa pulitika ang tatay. Pero tingnan ang lalawigang kanilang pinaglilingkuran.. mahirap pa sa mahirap na daga.

    Ito ang masama sa Political dynasty o tawagin natin politacal family. Yumayaman sila pero yung mga kababayan nila nananatiling walang natapos, mahirap parin. Pag-aralan nyo ang mga lugar sa Pinas na pinatatakbo ng iilang pamilya. Yung mga nakaupo, sa mga exclusive schools nag-aaral ang mga anak, sa mga pangmayamang subdibisyon nakatira. Samantalang ang bayan na kanilang pinagsisilbihan ay mahirap parin hanggang ngayon. Ilan sa kanila 100 years nang nanunungkulan ang pamilya sa pulitika pero wala naman nagawa para iangat ang nakararami nilang kababayan.Sila lang ang umaangat. Mga pasaway! Pag-aaralin sa mga sikat at mamahaling skwelahan ang mga anak tapos palit pwesto lang ang alam na trabaho. sa gobyerno parin aasa ng kikitain. lokohin nyo sarili nyo mga politikal dynasty.

    Subukan nila kayang di tumakbo ngayong eleksyon. magpapatuloy pa rin ang buhay ng Pinoy. Sigurado hindi sila ma MIMISS ng sambayanang Pilipino. 

    Subukan nyo mga hunghang!!! parang kayo lang ang tao sa Pinas ah!

    Sen.Cayetano, “the state shall guarantee equal access to opportunities for public service and
    prohibit political dynasties as may be defined by law.” Good or Bad political dynasty they both fall under the provision that prohibit political dynasty. Why then during your term as a senator did not pass a Bill on this provision?

    Senator Cayetano is correct to a certain extent.People will complain and notice a defect if nothing is working when elected.Dynasty issue comes up when the people involve are corrupt and the whole family is judged corrupt.This reminds me of a quote made a US justice when ask to define pornography,”i know when i see one”.So dynasty can be more or less defined the same way,when its obvious that the whole family is just there to protect their interest and grab power for  influence and money,common sense will dictate there is something wrong.

  • lapasan

    Political dynasty should be done away with whether that political clan is “clean” or not. Political dynasty can create an environment conducive to corruption. We as Filipinos have a culture of helping out our friends and relatives whether corruption is involved or not. If in a certain territory a member of the family is the mayor and the son is the governor and other members of the family are mayor of a municipality and still others are councilors or board members, then the clan is really powerful. It can control the businesses of that territory, and because of their power they can also exert influence over government agencies like the police, the courts and others. In this kind of environment how can ordinary people deal effectively with the powerful clan when its members are engaged in corruption or wrong doing in office? It also follows that political power can bring about economic power. In an election, how can a highly capable Juan de la Cruz who has less money and influence beat a member of a political clan which has influence and money?

    Let us start by influencing those we can not to vote for candidates coming from ‘political clans’ – corrupt or not. It is high time to give deserving others chance to serve the public. If the elected ‘new’ politician would not perform as expected, trash him/her next election time. With very few exemptions, I for one would not vote for a traditional politician.

    This is all down to each and every Filipino voter to exercise his/her own sacred right – the right to vote. Let us not waste chance to vote for change, for a better tomorrow – a better Philippines for all Filipinos.As the famous saying goes: we only get the kind of government that we deserve.

    Senator Alan Cayetano, your solemn contract with the people is to make laws that will reinforce & strengthen our Constitution.  Time & again (for the past 25 years since l987 constitution was in effect) you & your “honorable club members” miserably FAILED US in enabling a law that will address the prohibition of political dynasty.under our constitution.  Why?  Is it due to lack of knowledge?  Is it due to lack of skills in making laws  (you are lawyer) or Is it lack of DESIRE?  If you lack the knowledge & skills, please let me know – I can significantly help you – by the way I am not a lawyer.  But if it is a QUESTION OF DESIRE – God forbid – you better resign.  You are supposed TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE in following the Constitution.

    A Plea for Understanding

    In fairness to Peter Cayetano, he’s just speaking his mind. No need for everyone to throw stones at him. Truth be told, politicians have no other life skills. They usually set aside their personal careers and put their lives on hold to enter the rewarding business of public service. If politicians do not get re-elected, they cannot simply go back to what they used to do before or do a dramatic mid-life career shift. They took a huge risk to be of service to the nation. In case you haven’t noticed, there’s no TESDA training for former politicians to acquire new skills in order to retool and repurpose their lives. Joel Villanueva says there’s none. But we can’t just push politicians and the likes of Peter Cayetano into an incinerator after we’re done with them. Come on, this is still a humane democratic country. Everybody has to make a living. Everybody deserves another chance.

    • Jerry_SeinfeId

      Senators, Congressmen, Mayor, Governors – entails public service. Public first before pocket. Its hard to think of any Philippine Senator who is not corrupt. I played ball in Singapore, out of curiosity I asked a Singaporean, do you have any corrupt public official. The answer is very straight forward, “No, never had one for years”.  Sa Pilipinas, that’s all but a WISH.

        Just like you, I have great admiration for SG. I believe that because of LKY’s exemplary leadership, corruption is kept to a minimum or close to zero. But his personal friend Teh Chean Wan did commit suicide after investigation results yielded evidence of public housing corruption. This is a well known case in SG. In recent years, cases of gov’t contract in exchange for personal sex have been prosecuted and brought to closure. LKY himself recently said that the new corruption may no longer be confined to monetary bribery but are actually happening by way of sexual favors. All from Strait Times. Having said that, I still admire SG, but I cannot say that corruption is zero. As for Pinas, I’m not optimistic that corruption can be stamped out anytime soon.

    mr. senator, EVERYTHING po is wrong with political dynasties.  it is like telling millions of filipinos there are only a limited number of filipinos who can serve this country.  what makes you and your sister and, for that matter too, all the rest of all the generations of the same politicians, so uniquely special, that all of you and the rest of your families must continue ad infinitum?  give others po a chance to show what others can do too.

    saksakan ang “YAMAN” ilang generation ang hagip ng yaman nla, hala sige…

    “KAWAWANG PILIPINAS”….kya ang mga Pilipino gustong mag-abroad dhil gutom ang pamiya nila sa sariling bansa, kabaliktaran sa mga politikong MAGIGITING.

     kailan kaya ipagbabawal ang pagsuot ng BARONG sa mga corrupt na’to…

    Missing the point again by a thousand miles, hehehe. Which part of Article II,section 26 of the constitution did Cayetano not understand on the state  guaranteeing equal access to public service in prohibiting political dynasty? LOL

    It is bad enough that the concentration of political power is in the hands of the few and in this case of political dynasty it is worst because it has become a family business profit enterprise that in effect closed the door for deserving well qualified leaders of integrity.

    Mr. Cayetano is displaying the typical hypocrisy and entitlement mentality of I am special and not like them even though he looks, smell, and act like a political dynasty, hehehe. Kaya hidi tayo umaasenso people only see what is wrong with others while in denial that there is really nothing that differentiates them from the very people they criticize, LOL.

Topping my list of worst political families for bad record and/or kagahaman sa pwesto are the marcoses, arroyos, estradas, and binays (VP, congresswoman, mayor, and 1 more is running for the senate in 2013, if this is not kaswapangan sa pwesto, i dont know what is!).

  • superpilipinas

    No to Poltical Dynasties. Not at this time when we are still reforming.

    The reason is that these political dynasties took advantage of the corruption of the past administrations. They have acquired an unfair power advantage and influence. That is why they have a stronghold in their local areas and in the Philippines. Under the past administrations, other hopefuls did not have the benefit of a fair and level playing field.

    Philippine polictics must be rebooted. Let’s force a level playing field again. We should not vote for members of these political dynasties in the next 10 years. After 10 years we can choose to vote for them again. By that time, they can’t use their unfair influence anymore and only the truly good dynasties will survive.

    NO TO POLITICAL DYNASTIES. NO TO TRADITIONAL POLITICIANS.

    Whether there is a n Anti dynasty Law or not, in the end, it is the voter’s choice who will become their leaders. Sino ba ang nagpapadami ng dynasties, di ba tayo ding mga botante? Kung sana lahat ng botante ay ginagamit ng tama bawat boto niya eh di kahit walang batas sa anti dynasty, walang pulitikong makakapagtayo ng Dynasty. Whoever we or you vote in 2013, whether, the sons of Lacson, Revilla, Enrile, Pimentel, Cayetanos, if we vote and allow them to win, eh manahimik na lang tayo lahat. In the end, majority wins (voters). That’s the essence of democracy. For the case of the Mayors, Governors and Congressmen, let their constituents vote whom they like. Pag gusto ng mga kapampangan iboto pa rin mga Arroyo, nasa kanila yun at wag silang ngangawa ng political dysnaties. Ganun din sa mga Marcos, kung gusto silang iboto ng mga Ilocano sa Ilocandia, eh, hayaan natin silang magdusa at masakop ng dysnaty ng mga Marcos. Bottomline, tayong mga botante ang number one factor kung bakit dumadami ang politicians na nakakapagtayo ng Dynasty. Niluto natin, kainin natin at wag ng umangal.

    the way we can neutralize this political dynasties is not to vote for them.

    We can try ending this political dynasty in the coming elections if not the next. I will start in our province in iloilo where I will not vote for governor Defensor nor Tupas. Mind you there is no corruption record for Defensor but because he fielded his son as congressman and himself supposed to be opposition is now clinging to LP and forged alliance. I do admire his admin for bringing reforms and projects to the province but he is trying to switch to LP just to get those projects going, this is political corruption. Even worse if it is Tupas. Political dynasty, tradpols, and butterflies will be eliminated soon.

      Tupas has a sister and a brother working for the government both given by Noynoy.

  • Aber!

    How it all came together:

    In 1998, Compañero Cayetano became a senator by taking advantage of the Vizconde case.
    In 2004, Pia Cayetano became a senator by taking advantage of daddy’s death.
    In 2007, Peter Cayetano became a senator by taking advantage of public disgust for FG.
    In 2010, Pia Cayetano became a 2nd term senator by taking advantage of her TV face time.
    In 2010, Lani Cayetano became Taguig Mayor by taking advantage of name recall.
    In 2013, Peter Cayetano wants to be re-elected by promising everyone a 20/20 vision.

    The Cayetano political dynasty came to power on nothing much. They came, they saw and they conquered us on the strength of a massacre, daddy’s death, public disgust for GMA’s husband, massive spending for reelection TV ads and name recall. I personally love the hypnotic chanting of Pia’s name in her 2010 political ads. It takes less than 15 years to create a political dynasty. But it takes a lifetime to recover from the damage it leaves behind. In May 2013, you be the judge.

Your family is slowly creating a dynasty in Taguig. How your wife splashes her name in every corner of the city is so disgusting. Ultimo mga basurahan may pangalan niya at ang deceiving na letter “L” na nakatago pa sa heart e talaga namang nakakasuka na. Epal ang asawa mo. Pera ng taong bayan ang ginagamit niya para ipaskil ang pangalan niyo sa taguig. Isa itong korupsyon na nagtatago sa legalidad ng batas. Kung talagang matino kang senador.

        If it was that simple, this wouldnt have been an issue. Problem with dynasties is that sometimes they run unopposed. By making a law that would limit relatives of an incumbent official from running for the same position, other qualified people would have the courage to run without the fear of being by bullied by the family of the ruling clan.

    “Theres no problem with political dynasties”- Allan Cayetano…the Constitution says otherwise. The problem lies with so many lawyer politicians who can thwart the law to their very own benefit. Political dynasties create a monopoly of power in the governement, thus check and balance is impossible to happen, thus corruption. When families are in power, they have the absolute power, and absolute power corrupts absolutely!!

    Back in the good old decade 50’s, there was nothing even remotely identical to this issue we are talking about today. Perhaps dynasty politics in the good old days never made it to the collective minds of politicians because those were the days they all have high integrity, honesty and principle.  Of course back those days, we did not also have term limits which is a story for another day.  I do not recall mayor in my hometown anointing his wife, sons or daughters to take his place while he run for a position lower than his anointed but nonetheless still holding the power.  Ang ibig kong sabihin, noon araw ang mga politko ay me integridad hindi tulad ngayon na pakapalan sila ng muhka.

  • spearheads

    Review your Constitution Cayetano. Does it distinguish whether or not a dynasty is corrupt or not before it is prohibited? Does it say that ONLY corrupt dynasties are prohibited? Sumobra na yata ang galing mo sa batas? If a family is corrupt then they are prohibited to hold public office whether or not they belong to a dynasty so it is hugely moronic to tie up corruption to the anti dynasty bill or future law. The reason for the bill is pro-active, that is to prevent one family to lord it over and increase the chances of corruption, clueless Cayetano.

    Let us not judge the book by its cover. Hindi lahat ng pareho ang apelyedo ay masama o mabuti. Kung manghusga tayo, tingnan ang nagawa o hindi nagawa ng pulitiko. higit sa lahat, husgahan ang kanilang katapatan sa paglilingkod at kalinisan ng pagkatao, kung may bahid ng kurakot ang pamilya nila o wala. Tingnan natin kung ang pamilya nila ay may atraso sa hustisya at may dapat pagbayaran sa bayan.

    To guarantee the crafting and passing of enabling law/s for political dynasty, let us force candidates their promise to do such when they win in this election. Kung nanalo sila at hindi nila nagawang magpasa ng bill tungkol dito, huwag na nating iboto sa susunod na election. Ngayon palang, umu-unti na ang election alphabet ko. Nawala na yong A, B, C, E….

    In a political dynasty chances are that employment and economic opportunities will be mostly favored to those closely associated with the powers that be. A politician will naturally favor those who are his friend, relatives or political allies and even mere body guards. If there are more members of clan who hold elective offices then the number of people who will be availed benefits and privileges because of political patronage will even be amplified. Eventually politics and economic power becomes the monopoly and family business of politicians.

  • cogito728sum

    I find Peter Cayetano’s justification for political dynasty hard to swallow for it is not only self-serving, highly presumptuous, contrary to reality, and against the generally accepted truism that ‘power corrupts.’  Peter wants us to abide with him on his erroneous example of a clean family in government but the reality points in the opposite direction.  He can be excused, however, for such brash argument for he’s still young and idealism has not deserted him yet.  But once youth leaves him behind and pragmatism sets in, it makes one wonder how far he can hold his convictions. Assuming he holds his ground, what good is one shining apple among the many rotten ones?  If we look around its not hard to find erstwhile idealist student leaders who, upon joining the mainstream of society, allowed themselves to be swallowed by the corrupting influence of the establishment.  Many just abandoned their idealism upon realising that pragmatism is the better alternative for being in politics.

    Someone argued that these politicians would have nothing to fall back on once they are out of office, another untenable contention.  This kind of argument makes it appear that these politicians who make a career out of public office are doing the public a big favour when in reality they are the predators that sucks the public treasury, pardon my french.   What happened to the doctrine that “public office is a public trust?” Times are indeed a changing.

    Another fallacious argument proffered is to the effect that if the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (this concept of pursuit of happiness is enshrined only in the American Declaration of Independence and not, to my recollection, in the Philippine Constitution), why can’t the same guarantee be given to political dysnastic families?  But the Philippine Constitution, perhaps recognizing the detrimental effect on  society in general, proscribe the establishment of political dynasties and the only inhibiting factor for its materialization is the inability of the legislators, for their self-preservation, to craft the necessary enabling legislation.

    As it is, we are in the long haul as far as our political set up turned out to be, the effect of unnecessarily tweaking the Constitution.  The suffocating effect of pervasive political dynasties from Cagayan to Davao makes breathing terribly tough for the electorates who clamour for change for the better.   Indeed we are badly choking that even the prospect of changing the Constitution thru a constitutional convention-the only viable alternative to provide avenue for the true expression of the will of the people-is very bleak because the very people who represent us in government decided to turn their back from us.  That apparently their sworn motive is the preservation of their self-interest than the common good.  Where then do we go from here?  Thank you folks!

    They spend their own money and not your money.
    So if you want to run  for public office, then run, it is free.

    Well, Mr. Senator, it’s nice to know that you, at least identified the root cause of the problem.  The pressing question is:  Have you done anything about it?  If you know someone in your party down to the mayors and you have not done anything to stop the corrupt practices, then by association, IMHO, you are just as good (or corrupt as they are).  Pass the freedom of information bill to strengthen the resolve to have the government agencies like the LGU’s be a lot more transparent,  especially in their “pet projects.”  Secondly, cut the darn pork barrel then let’s see how many dynasties fold.

    The old Cayetano was a Marcos supporter. He ran for congressman of Taguig after the genuine EDSA 1 and lost. He re-polished his image and launched himself as ‘Kumpanyero’ with the help of ABS CBN. He teamed up with Gel Santos-Relos both on radio and tv in the 90’s. He became popular when he handled the Vizconde case as the prosecuting lawyer for the Vizcondes. Then he ran for senator and won.

    Before he died of cancer he was able to groom and produce two Cayetanos as senators. Pia and Allan.

    It is the people who vote for the candidates. It is in their hands to bring someone to power. 2013 is the best year to dismantle political dynasties. The likes of Enriles, Binays, Estradas? People already know who belong to corrupt dynasties. The big question is, are they going to let it happen, again and again?

    it always matters on which side you are in!  if it happens that you are with the political dynasty in power. then I don’t believe that you can say it is corrupt even if it is! for your heart is with them, unless if somebody or any event of significance can make you open your mind.

    However! Political Dynasty is only bad if the power that is in your place is corrupt and not serving the people.

    For the people of Davao City, that is the least that they want now! Majority of them must have even pray that the Political Dynasty that is in power on their city might reign FOREVER. . . .  AS GOD WILL PERMIT THEM.

        Dapat magpasa ang congress ng enabling law para ma implement ang nakalagay sa consitution. Lahat ng gustong itulong ng pulitiko ay pwedeng kunin sa pork barrel kaya hindi sila malulugi.

    A group of people who are close relatives should not be allowed to dominate government positions in the same region. It gives the relatives undue advantage and power kasi ang kasabihan BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER. They have undue advantage because they tend to unite and connive. They tend to abuse and gang-up on their perceived opponents. They manipulate and dominate the political arena. They intimidate the public because they silently or openly project the image that they are a force to reckon with and thus promote fear. THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF ONE RELATIVE DOES NOT APPLY TO THE OTHER. The wisdom and virtues of one relative does not apply to the other. This is one way of extending the term- A PROXY METHOD! Ang magulang na nakapwesto ilalagay ang anak na bata at wala experience, wala accomplishments, wala maturity at wisdom, para sya din ang kumontrol. ARE YOU ALL BLIND?

    Sen Alan Cayetano doesnt get it. The issue in political dynasty isnt just about corrupt politicians  who happens to have his family also in elected positions. It’s about a family who occupies different positions all at the same time. Where will the check and balance be? Sasabihin nyo sa amin inelect naman kayo ng tao. Eh paano ayaw nyo kaming bigyan ng choice. Ang tingin nyo kasi sa mga botante tanga, that you will all get away with it. Look at Taguig, Alan Cayetanos wife  is seeking reelection for mayor. His brother is running for congress. Tapos yung kapatid nya is a seating Senator. Kahit na sabihin nyong you mean well and hindi kayo corrupt, it is always dangerous when political powers are concentrated to a few. Power begets corruption. More power begets more corruption. If the Cayetanos so love this country, then they should set an example. And that is call a spade a spade. Call it a political dynasty because thats what it is. That in itself it already wrong. It breeds oligarchy. Shameless Cayetanos! Kapal ng mga mukha.

      You must be a keen student of chinese philosophy.  Your post is virtually a reiteration of an ancient chinese proverb which says: “It is an evil for the people that its ruler should learn to rule by ruling; as far as possible they should learn to rule before ruling.  It is an evil for the people that they should have no access for office, and that government should be the privilege of an hereditary few; but it is good for the people that office should be confined to those who have been prepared for it by ability and training.”

      The relevance of your post and this ancient proverb viz-a-viz the problem of political dynasty cannot be overemphasized, thank you very much.   It proves my secretly held belief that we can benefit educationally from the contributions of others.  My only regret is that I am convinced that there are savants out there who, albeit occasionally perhaps, read the comments here and could contribute to the enlightenment of our minds but are turned off because of the trivialities and inanities of others.  Or that they consider it beyond their dignity to participate herein.  If that is the case, may I implore upon these silent learned citizens to cast aside personal pride and endow us with their beneficence.  A grateful citizenry await the immense benefit from your valuable contributions on the issues of the day.  An enlightened citizenry is the least you can contribute for the survival of democracy.

  • victorts

    The trouble with Philippine politics is once one wins a government position, he amasses so much wealth that he is then able to finance the candidacy of a family member for a position that will enable him to amass wealth himself.  That goes on and on and on. 

    To prevent the situation or somewhat soften its effect, simply abolish the pork barrel and not very many would want to become candidates.

  • regd

  • IsipPinoy

    Sen. Cayetano is correct. We’re barking at the wrong tree.  It’s the voters and our faulty system that is to blame why we have political dynasties. If the people doesn’t want it they will not vote for these dynasty politicians. Simple as that. We also have an unfair system where a candidate sometimes wins not because of qualifications but because of amount of money raised.  What we need firstly, is education for our people on electoral process starting at an early age so that by the time they’re ready to vote they will be wiser. Secondly, we need to institute election campaign financing reform so that candidates of lesser means but otherwise qualified can make a viable run for office. We can make that possible through a taxpayer financed election campaigns. Private political donations will be outlawed. Some countries have similar system in some forms and it works for them. It not only levels the playing field but also reduces if not eliminates corruption. Banning people to run for office just because he/she belongs to a certain family is unfair.

  • turin55555

    No, Mr Senator. Whatever defense you could come up with for the political dynasties, it will only fall on to deaf ears. It’s a no-brainer. Protecting and defending dynasties only show incompetence and unwillingness to let other Filipinos (who may offer better leadership and expertise) to serve their fellow Filipinos and to acknowledge their intelligence in contributing to the expansion of knowledge and innovative minds of others who may prove to be better exposed in public than suppressed by a selfish few.

  • Mamang Pulis

    kung mararapatin sana, hihiramin ko yun isang istorya sa Rappler na ginawa ni  Maria A. Ressa.  ito ay yun one on one interview nya kay Presidente….

    he says his primary focus as the nation’s leader is to “change the status quo so
    that it affects everybody.” Unlikely words coming from a member of an
    oligarchic family,

     

    “That was really one of the focal battles for changing the status quo,”
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Ang tanong ko po :

    status quo = present state of affairs

    samakatuwid–isa sa daang matuwid ni Presidente ay ang PALITAN ang pangkasalukuyang nagaganap o mga nakaugalian

    di po ba–relevant yun sinasabi ng presidente natin na –focal battles for changing the status quo  sa mga kapatid/asawa/kuya/ate/pamangkin/uncle/aunty ng mga incumbent at may balak silang patakbuhin pa?

    di po ba senador cayetano?

    sasagot yan–eh sino pa ba ilalagay natin–kung tutusin, over qualified pa nga pamangkin ko o asawa ko sa puesto—gusto nyo ba ng jaworski? sotto? lapid? estrada? eh si pacman nga nag crash course sa pagiging kongresista–kita mo–naghahabol ng bill para wag matulad kay pansit mikey

    meron nga sumagot din na pamangkin–maiwanan kaya ng political family ang pinaghirapan nila, parang sa negosyo, iiwanan ba nila basta basta ang negosyo nila

    samakatuwid—politika=negosyo=kabuhayan plus package

  • Fulpol

    Sen. Cayetano…. political dynasty itself is a corruption.. corrupting the electorate, corrupting the distribution of power..

    why did not framers of Constitution prohibit political dynasty? because it is a corruption itself.

  • Fulpol

    Political dynasty is political corruption:

    1. Patronage
    2. Trading of influence
    3. Nepotism and cronyism
    4. Electoral fraud such as vote buying
    5. Unholy alliance

    who comes clean, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, Sen. Pia Cayetano and Mayor Laarni “Lani” Cayetano?

    Sen. Alan Cayetano only thinks that corruption is mere stealing of money…

    • manual47

      I never thought I would agree with you Fulpol.  But you are right this time on your analysis.  The purpose of the constitution is to guide the people on how to govern themselves fundametntally.  And if that purpose is no longer benefits the country and the people but instead create unfair advantage, then the constitution by itself is useless.  Specially if the people who’s breaking the rules were the members of the government themselves who for a fact should have been upholding and protecting the constitution.  Shame on these crooked politicians whose interest only for the benefits of the few and not the majority…….

    hey thanks a lot Mr. Cayetano, honourable Sire, now then i hope majority of the Filipino will find out that it is so, that’s if it’s good for you and your dynasty, then it’s not good for us, so WE WILL NOT VOTE FOR YOU AND THE REST OF YOUR DYNASTY!

    Pardon me Mr. Allan Peter Cayetano, pero paano magkakaroon ng equal “opportunity in winning elections between those who have money and influence, and those who don’t” e  sabi nung Comelec yung mga candidates na walang pangampanya NUISANCE! So ang nangyayari sa election sa bansa natin, yung family na lang ng mga mayayamang candidatres tulad ninyong magkapatid, ang may karapatang kumandidato. Kayo kayo na lang ang nagpapalitan. Sigurado ako, after your term, patatakbuhin mo ang asawa mo.

    • Guest

      Will you now require the Comelec to impoverish those who have money and influence to leel the playing field? Communism po yata ang ipinaglalaban niyo.

  • Fulpol

    The survival of a political family, creating a political dynasty depends on the mode and approach in retaining power..

    1. Patronage
    2. Trading of influence
    3. Nepotism and cronyism
    4. Electoral fraud (I considered block or solid voting a fraud, ala Iglesia ni Cristo style)
    5. Unholy alliance…

    these approaches is political corruption…

    Do you think Sen. Cayetano that you are clean? Do you think B.S. Aquino III is also clean?

  • ardong

    Voters are partly to be blamed. Admit it, we appeared immature and/or stupid because we  never learned from our past mistakes. Money from  pork barrels, kickbacks from government projects, signed doctrine of 10-20 percent under-the -table  of all government acquisitions under their jurisdictions are the sure  source of campaign funding used by these family of crocodiles in the House/Senate and LGU  who has done nothing for the welfare of their constituents – and yet,  most of our voters still vote for them. They have the capacity to  power their advertising and PR campaigns with these “kurakot funds” and  have ultimately achieved  their strong name recall and hence, more votes. Our simple-minded kababayans simply do not think. 

    These power hungry families’ have the capacity to buy votes -even corpse in the cemetery  can go back to life during election time  to vote. And worse, they may the power to  corrupt even Comelec officials. These are classic offshoots of political dynasties.

    In the final analysis, it is us who decides. Problem is, more often than not, we do not have any other options to choose from among other alternative candidates because some good and competent ones do not have political logistic to join the campaign trails. WE do not know their profile because they don’t have the money!

  • Simple_Boy

    Mr Alan Cayetano, I’ve just lost my respect for you! Your true color is showing, you are just another TRAPO like your clolleagues..

    Political dynasty is like stealing..It does not matter if you steal 10 pesos or 100 million, it’s the ACT not the AMOUNT.

    • Guest

      true to your name, you’re a simple boy. more like a simpleton.

  • Fulpol

    To prohibit political dynasty is not just to give equal access of others in enjoying the privilege to serve the public but also to kill political corruption, as the mode and approaches of political family to retain power..

    1. Patronage
    2. Trading of influence
    3. Nepotism and cronyism
    4. Electoral fraud (I considered block or solid voting a fraud, ala Iglesia ni Cristo style)
    5. Unholy alliance

    Do you think B.S. Aquino III is “politically” clean or even “morally” clean?

    Etong hunghang na Cayetano, kung magsalita, ginagago na naman tayong mg Filipino. Typical na trapo talaga. Hindi nawawalan ng katuwiran at ang masama pa lawyer kaya talagang lahat ng kabalbalang katuwiran e hindi mauubos sa mga to. 

    Ang ibig nyang sabihin, alam natin kung sino ang corrupt at hindi at kung hindi natin alam, iboto muna natin at tikman pamamaraan. Meantime, nakapwesto na lahat ang buong pamilya sa pangungurakot at bago natin malaman kung corrupt o hindi, limas na ang kaban. And besides, para bang hindi corrupt ang hunghang na to eh tingnan mo kung ipagtanggol si Villar at the height of the C5 anomaly.

    Mag kababayan, the 2013 election will be the litmus test for  how powerful we netizens are. Pag may nanalong dynast, that means, kahit tayong netizens ay inutil. And all we can do is watch the whole nation go to hell.

    Now, I knew that what Marcos as done to us was correct. Like He abolish congress and senate before, TAMA lang pala yun ginawa niya. I’m not for Marcos but lately I knew what He did is correct. Before he was congress and senate president on his time. Kaya niya ina-bolished ang congress and senate because of corruption. Ngayon parang ibinalik lang ang congress and senate sa ngayon wala rin pag-babago….Kung nag step down lang si Marcos maging hero pa siya. Ang ipinalit sa congress and senate are assemblymen ang pork barrel nila are fix rate and good benefits. Hindi na sila pwedeng mag-approve ng  mga project na masasakupan nila sa mga distrito. On his time mga professional lang ang pwedeng kumandidado sa pagiging assemblyman, hindi pwede mga artistahin, popularidad lang, beauty contest o boksingero ka pa…Ngayon negosyo na ang kumandidado sa congresso at senado dahil ang laki ng pork barrel nila. Tanong? Anu ang mga pinagagawa nila sa House and senate kunting bla-bla lang makaka- porsyento sa mga projects dun sa pork barrel nila. Sa congreso 70 to 75M and senado 200M a year. Bakit di mag-kakameron ng political dynasty sa Pinas. Yun lang ang magandang pag-kakakitaan ng mga politico sa atin. Kaya pinag-kakaperahan nila ang pagiging politiko sa atin..Tumatama na nga si Marcos nun, He dismantle congress and senate and change it to assemblyman..tama lang if you will analyzed it…..

    Haay, naku naman Alan Peter Cayetano, wag mo na pakialaman ang US politics.
    Obama won as president in 2008 and we aren’t Americans. What’s the connection?

    Pwede ba patunayan mo na lang kung mananalo ka pa sa 2013. Nininerbiyos ka na ba? Hayaan mo na ang mga botante na usisain ang mga kandidatong halatang-halata na umaangkas lamang sa name recall. I admired your late dad. It isn’t the same with you and your sister, as far as I am concerned. 

    But, at any rate, families creating political dynasties do not deserve any place in Philippine politics. The Filipino people are tired of grandstanding, circumventing the law, and lack of dignity among politicians who unabashedly misuse the nation’s financial resources with unnecessary spending and slacking performance (yet they fill the official records with senseless speeches and end up with lousy output). With close to 93 million Filipinos, who do you think you are to say that we need to distinguish corrupt from non-corrupt before political family dynasties should be analyzed? The mere violation of the Constitution defines the corruption of those who insist to hang on to their posts and propagate the violation.

  • Gerald Abueva

    This article was published at 0156h this morning.

    As of 1030h today, Peter Cayetano has garnered 95% negative comments (237 out of 250 posts).

    Will this booboo spell the death of Alan Peter Cayetano’s senatorial career? Who knows. Manong Johnny was similarly clobbered in fora like this several times when he came out with his book of lies and subsequent attempts to justify or revise his role in history. But his son Jackie Enrile employed a smart campaign strategy targeting specific voting age group and rural voters to make a steady gain. Targeted campaigning expertly done. With more than 6 months to go before May 2013, all is not lost yet for Alan Peter Cayetano. Internet fora have rather limited impact as only 3 out of every 10 Filipinos have internet access and more than 50% of Filipino internet users are not of voting age yet. The impact of internet fora may be magnified and amplified if topics are picked up by TV or radio broadcast which have greater reach. But as TV and radio are businesses that have to make money, politicians like Alan Peter Cayetano can easily buy airtime ads to make up for this booboo. If you haven’t noticed, he’s already invested a lot on primetime television ads for his 20/20 Vision. And just what exactly is his booboo? In a careless unguarded moment, Alan Peter Cayetano spoke honestly from the heart about his innermost political conviction. Spoken like a true politician.

    Incidentally, does anyone remember how Serge Osmena’s political got launched by Geny Lopez of ABS-CBN in that movie called “Eskapo” in 1995? Yes, movies can launch political as well as showbiz careers. Only Richard Gomez, who starred in that movie, never got his political dreams to fly. In keeping with our traditional Filipino values, Serge still recognizes his debt of gratitude to the Lopezes, and not to us the Filipino voters.

    If TV can make or break a politician’s career and tilt the election in a certain presidential candidate’s favor, this is probably the reason why Manny Pangilinan is willing to spend several times the book value of GMA7 to buy that company. But of course, that second attempt fell through and we the Filipino voters are all the better for it. TV5, which MVP owns, does not have the heft and clout yet to significantly influence our political elections. Notice the scarce well paying advertisements even in Willie Revillame’s primetime gameshow on TV5. Only GMA 7 and ABS-CBN have such an influence as of today.

    • jeffrey_01

      and they want to suppressed our voice in the internet by hastily approving an e-libel disguised as Cybercrime law.

        true. that’s the plan. and to stop whistleblowers from blowing the whistle, too. and to make sure that if FOI bill ever gets passed, it will be put in check by the e-libel provision of the cybercrime law. laws to protect the powers that be, not us.

    This goes to show once and for all that our politicians, most specially those who says that there is nothing wrong with poltical dynasty are ignorant or just brazenly ignore our constitution. It is clear as a summer daylight that our beloved constitution prohibits political dynasty but yet politician like Senator AP Cayetano basically ignore it. He should be arrested and prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law. Or better yet, Please do not vote for him and his sister Pia, thank you.

    There is something wrong IN Mr. Sen. Cayetano.  And it is not only in his false belief that a political dynasty is wrong only when its members are corrupt. 
     
    What is absolutely wrong IN Mr. Sen. Cayetano is that by saying what he said he is being dishonest and insincere because he is thereby actively and purposely suppressing a truth which is definitely known to him—–that political dynasties are made possible because of gross political, economic and social inequalities which already exist and which precisely, to a large extent, owe their existence to political dynasties.  The raison d’etre for the constitutional prohibition.

      • cogito728sum

        Didn’t you notice something with this guy?  He’s a great magician.  At the flick of his finger, he can easily alter his identity.  Just hours ago he was no time to doubt masking his persona with the picture of Ninoy.  Upon seeing the boyish picture of Peter, he decided to change his name and paste the picture of Cayetano over that of Ninoy.  But I think it is more appropriate since his fallacious arguments match that of Peter.

        I used to admire this guy because of his, like yourself, eloquence in the language of Shakespeare.  But I think the comparison ends there.  When he argued for the extermination of the indeginous people in the name of progress, I was  indeed mystified.  But when he went further that the army can perform mercenary functions for the mining companies, that really convinced me that his mental faculties-I surmised that he is a lawyer for his reference to the late Rene Cayetano as Sen. Companero-are screwed up like that of Peter and another mentally screwed up lawyer who was, once upon a recent time, the primus of his inter pares.

        This disgrace to the legal profession must be a pro-no, not prefessional mi amici-but a prostitute for prostituting himself in the name of peso or $?
        With lawyers like him, Peter, Renato Corona, and what’s the name of that other one who would go to the extent of betting his useless ball to protect his patroness?, is it any wonder that our government is totally messed up?

    Corruption is not the issue with Dynasties. It is the alienation and intimidation of possibly better qualified leaders than  the Cayetanos in the Senate. And how about the law on average Alan?, maski ikaw ayaw mo ng manok araw-araw or sleeping with the same wife forever and ever ( I bet you cheated her even for only once). You may win because you already have a machinery in tact, kaya no other leader can penetrate your political fortress- not because the poeple love nthe Cayetanos, However, One politician in one family is fair enough. But You and your wife and your sister? That’s not democracy but gluttony, Sir.

         Hey Alan the best proof is our dog-gone in the Philippines. I saw an OFW Tshirt which reads,”It hurts to leave the land I love because of the life and leaders I loathe”.

        “talo ako” does not mean panalo ka. That Alan Peter, his sister, and his wife are a dynasty is not speculation but a fact as crystal clear as the world is round. Where did you study your logic? They are a dynasty, that’s a given. It’s not my word, it’s the fact that speaks for itself, unless you have a different concept of what a dynasty is. But as I have said: one politician in a family is fair and square. Ang masama yung tatlo-tatlo sa isang pamilya ang sumasawsaw sa pulitika. Kung puede lang seguro maski na si Brownie mananalo sa Taguig, kasi may political machine na kayo. You Cayetanos are an insult to the people of Taguig.

Numbers are mere numbers not necessary signifying truth. Even the whole world before had the number to believe the Earth is flat. Meaning the majority could be wrong, especially in Pinas politics. So the millions that voted for Cayetano were wrong because they did not know they chose a greedy member of a dynasty. You can’t judge integrity by the baby and smooth face of Alan Cayetano. It’s what he does with that face and his tongue that matter, One can’t judge a book by its cover. Maraming demonyo sa lupa na mukhang angel.

  • fuctore

    A politician can be identified as corrupt only when he is exposed to media,
    e papaano naman yung ” friends ” ng media ? tulad ng mga Aquino, Roxas,Drilon, Cayetano at ng iba pang sangkaterbang LP politicians na parang hulog ng langit sa kalinisan kung iportray ng mga corrupt din at bias na media group.

    Ang nakaligtaan lang i mention nitong nag gagaling galingan na senador ay
    kung papaano nya ide define ang salitang ” DELIKADESA” at sobrang bilib sa sarili.
    Na akala nya na ang kanyang pamilya lang ang magagaling at malilinis kuno at wala ng
    karapatan ang ibang kandidato na tumalo sa kanila.

    By the way, MAGKANO NA KAYA ANG NAGAGASTOS MULA SA KABAN NG BAYAN
    ang walang humpay na propaganda commercials nitong si Cayetano? kahit hindi pa man din panahon ng kampanya.

    at wala pa syang kagatol gatol sa pagsasabing HINDI DAW SILA KORAP !!!

    Senator Peter, palawakin mo naman ang inyong paningin sa Dynasty. What are the “evils” of dynasties? Hindi mo ba alam? Read the history, the latest are the vain attempts of our Marcos family. Now, there are attempts again, and some have even succeeded, in annointing almost everyone in the family to be elected. There are provinces with almost the same family controlling it. Wala na bang ibang may talent. No one can break the circle because they protect each other. Other family even appear to be “quarrelling” with each other to gain the voters sympathy. But they are all in the famly. Manalo, matalo, everyone is protected. Must I say more, Senator?

    • Guest

      Thanks for arguing your case respectfully.

      With all due respect Jess, people intermarry and families will eventually come together as clans or powerful groups. Even without the so-called political dynasty, collusions happen. Please broaden your perspective, too.

    Relying on family protection, the political dynasties have greater tendency to turn dishonest because the incumbent will always cover up for his predecessor, at least, to protect his own image.

    Cayetano should know that preventing corruption is easier than to run after the crooks.

    • Guest

      But you haven’t answered the question. Have you proven that anyone of us is corrupt?

      Since you haven’t, your statement is wrong and unfair.

    Grow up, Cayetano.  Just because you made it as senator, doesn’t mean your intelligent enough to know what people think.   People have had enough of this political corruptions in the government.    Why don’t you for once get a real job and see how it feels to earn a real money that you really put your sweat into it.    It’s easy for you to say that “dynasty” is OK but you just don’t know what you’re talking about.  Read the constitution because in your case and your cohorts in the senate is just making mockery of it.  Come to think of it, there’s a good name for the bunch of you………”suckers”

    • Guest

      This is wrong and unfair. You voted for my dad. You voted for my sister. You voted for me. You voted for Cory. You voted for Pnoy. You voted for Marcos. You voted for Imelda. You voted for Imee. You voted for Bong-Bong. So why not me again?

      • manual47

        When people voted for a candidate, people expect that candidate with all his or her honesty will put the country and the citizens first.  But look what’s happening from the time of the Marcoses and until now.   You are right on one thing, you admitted that corruptions is rampant in the government.   And voters didn’t vote for you and the rest of you to make mockery of the system.  Now if you’re saying that you’re not one of them, I dare you to prove it by putting a bill to abolish this so called “pork barrel”.  I bet you, that’s not going to happen and  you wouldn’t even think of touching that subject.  You know why, because that is where the corruptions normally start.  You and I knows that there’s a better way than this “port barrel” to finance government projects.   

        It’s good for you to response on my comment but that is not what people is looking for.  Improve the system is what people expect from the people they voted.  Not with these so called “suckers”  in the government whose only motive is to enrich themselves.  I may be harsh on my judgement but to be honest, there’s truth to it.

      • Guest

        Abolish the pork? Sure.

        Ano pa po?

      • manual47

        Don’t patronize me, senator.  I am serious.  That is the root of the corruptions, have you ever thought about that.  If you really saying you’re an honest politicians, then prove it.   There’s more to it than playing with your words.  I suggest that you grow up and for once think of your fellow filipinos that are suffering.   Unless you already thrown your good conscience away, then it’s useless notion having discussion with you.  May you find solace that filipinos had suffered enough for years since the time of the Marcoses…..

        Mr. Alan Peter Cayetano, you are defending the political dynasty system because you and your sister are both in the Senate, and probably because both of you owe your being there to these political dynasties. You may be right by saying that not all dynasties are corrupt.  Maybe, but that would be more of the exception than the rule.  As a senator, you surely must have campaigned throughout the length and breadth of our country and should know who and where they are. You must have assessed how much political clout they hold in their respective constituencies and aware how much you will gain  should you get their support for your candidacy.  I will be too naive to think that you  did not woo them for support. And you will be too naive if you do not know that the common denominator among political dynasties, past and present, is corruption.  

        Kickbacks are inherent and referred to as SOP in every, if not all government contracts and purchases, beside the fact they are ridiculously overpriced. Sub-standard deliveries of materials and goods, short and ghost deliveries are prevalent, not to mention the maintenance of ghost employees. Some are even involved in criminal acts such as illegal logging, fishing and mining, smuggling and gun running. They corner every government contract and build businesses in the area to control the economy as well, the insurance they need for their family’s political longevity.
          
        You and your ilk in both chambers of congress who unabashedly support the continued existence of political dynasties reason out that the people themselves voted these family members into office, an indication that the people support the system and should therefore be respected.  But if such support was obtained from poor unsophisticated voters who are easily bought with crumbs from illegally obtained funds, would you not find anything wrong with that?  If I stole a million bucks and realized that a vendor saw me doing it, then gave him a thousand so he won’t say anything, is that acceptable and perfectly alright with you?

         If you will tell us that you only solicit support from honest political dynasties, please let us know who they are.  Reputations of political dynasties are like an open book  and the Ombudsman need not tell us who the notoriously corrupt ones are.

      • Guest

    • Guest

      wrong and unfair.

  • alexfrommactan

    I think Cayetano has a point. Banning people the right to serve just because they have relative in government is fundamentally not fair. Noone shall be judge, either good or bad, by virtue of his family or relative but my his own merit. If we have polical dynasties, it is mostly of two things. 1. Our political system does not easily allow new candidates. 2. Voters attitude/education to simply vote people in terms of popular last names, not by virtue of personal merit. Blame and address that two items to resolve political dynasty.

    • Sid Banez

       Yes he has a point… if the Constitution does not prohibit it. Precisely because we have weaknesses in our political system and voter attitude, as you put it, Congress of which Cayetano is a member should have long ago enacted an enabling law in support of the Constitutional provision. Now we have a legislator (he is not alone) who speaks contrary to the constitution he is sworn to defend.

      • alexfrommactan

        What the constitution also states in the same line is that ” The state shall ensure equal access to public service…

        Preventing someone from service due to presence of kin or relative violates that very sentence alone of equal access to public service.

        The only way the two can be reconciled is to make entry to politics not prohibitive for everybody. The rest will be up to voters education and choice.

  • Sid Banez

    The Constitution says “no” to political dynasties. That Peter Cayetano says “yes” doesn’t change the constitutional provision. I’ve been taught that the constitution is the aspiration of the people therefore, a political system free of political dynasties if the aspiration of the Filipino people.

    Peter Cayetano, along with his fellow legislators should have helped in realizing this aspiration of the people by enacting an enabling law that fulfills this sacred constitutional provision.

    Now he is justifying what is prohibited in the constitution.

    I thought senators are supposed to defend the constitution? Maybe, using Cayetano’s own words,  “he and his sister are constitutionally qualified, which is more than what you can say about yourself”. He probably meant he and his sister are constitutionally qualified to subvert the constitution.

    Politics is a real disease that corrupts the practitioner’s mind and morals.

  • DaniloD2D

     The arguments of the Senator from Taguig are way off the mark.  It doesn’t matter one bit that siblings sitting together in a singular institution may be competent.  The Constitution has already spoken.  It prohibits political dynasties.  Besides, the real issue here is not solely about choosing those who are honest.  Rather, it is mainly to call on the guarantee prescribed in the Constitution giving “equal access to opportunities for public service.”  Verily implicit in that context, the electorate also has the right to be afforded the widest possible choices of candidates to pick from – and not be constricted to those with the same surname appearing on top and below, left and right, in one campaign poster. 

    • Guest

    Alan Peter Cayetano, patay kang bata ka sa election – sige kung uubra ang pagpapaikot mo ang mga ulo ng mga Taong Bayan.

    • Guest

      baket, masakit na ba batok mo?

  • les21reago

    Cayetano :
    The mere fact that you know your dynasty being good at it IS MORE THAN Corruption in its essence…

    The LOGIC is about FAIRNESS or a level playing field…Those that are in POWER like yourself had an advantage over the others…For example, how could your brother LINO be a Chairman of the Barangay Captains without elbowing those Captains by your existence and your wife largesse to them as Mayor…

    Thank you if  the Cayetano’s NOT corrupt…BUT how many out  there like the Cayetano’s..

    Certainly on DYNASTIC families in the country, there are many BAD than GOOD..the BAD outnumbered the GOOD…

    It’s a CLASSIC time our SUPREME COURT compel Congress to ACT on enabling LAWS with regards to political dynasty fast enough and should that be DONE any WINNER declared on the 2013 mid term election would be covered by the definition of the dynasty law and be rendered VOID.

    There’s nothing wrong with political dynasties, Alan Cayetano say.

    It’s like saying: “There’s nothing wrong with carrying firearms, because you cannot question a person’s real intentions until he fires his gun. Judge not, that ye be not judged”

    LETSE.. This is the reason why we need RHBILL and ANTI-POLITICAL DYNASTY BILL
     
    The former – to keep idiots like Alan at bay, and the latter just in case the former fails.

    Ang political dynasty ang pinagmumulan ng unequal distribution of wealth kasi nga gusto ng pamilya ng mga politiko na pangalagaan at palakihin ang yaman ng pamilya nila.
    1. Ang mga pamilya ng mga politiko ang mamamahala ng isang barangay, bayan, siyudad, probinsiya at buong bansa.
    2. Ang mga pamilyang ito rin ang gagawa ng mga batas para paboran ang kanilang mga business interest.
    3. Ang mga pamilya ring iyan ang hahawak sa hustisya sa pamamagitan ng koneksyon sa mga huwes.

    Tama, hindi nga corrupt pero wala namang delikadesa. Harapan nang pambabastos sa constitution at taumbayan. Sino naman ang lolokohin ninyong gusto ninyo lang mag-silbi sa bayan. Sige nga kung tutuo yan bakit hindi kayo tumulad sa mga nagmi-misyon sa mga liblib na lugar sa Pilipinas> magdala kayo ng mga doktor, bigyan ninyo ng malinis na inumin ang mga tao, bigyan nyo ng pagkakakitaan, bigyan ng magandang edukasyon. Wala namang politiko ang pumapasok sa politika na walang inaasahang kabutihan para sa sarili. Gusto nyo lang naman talaga na sumikat at magpayaman.

Hindi ang pagiging corrupt at hindi corrupt, hindi ang pagiging mayaman at hindi mayaman ang pinagbatayan ng mga naglagay nyan sa konstitusyon, kundi ang pantay pantay na pagkakataon sa bawat mamamayan na maluklok sa pwesto. Kung gusto ninyo lahat sa pamilya na manilbihan sa pamahalaan, isa isa lang, hindi sabay sabay, ganun lang kasimple yon.

    Justifying the unjustifiable. He’s trying to tell us that there is nothing wrong with a brother and his sister being together in the senate. There is. He should look at it this way. His inputs in whatever ways he wants to help this country can be coursed through his sister and vice-versa. One of them in the senate is enough, given the fact that their ideas may not differ that much from each other because they grew up together in the same family. By being in the senate at the same time, they are depriving other people a chance to bring out their own ideas, which may benefit more this country. The same is true with father and son, brother and half-brother, grandfathers and grand children, whatever combination you have. They’re there  to perpetuate the family in power. Look around. Political dynasty corrupts. Absolute political dynasty corrupts absolutely.

Ginawagang negosyo ang panunungkulan. Kaya dapat talaga magkaroon ng batas sa anti-dynasty upang maging parehas ang pulitika sa bansa. Hindi sa mga naghahari at mga swapang na angkan lamang.

    Oh, c’mon Mr Senator, just ask your conscience as to whether you really are for Political Dynasty or not! I am sure you have heard a lot of negative comments about Political Dynasty-Philippine Style, and most Filipinos voters agreed that this practice by many of our politicians must be stopped. On how i look at it, it is only you and your fellow politicians wants to continue with this anomalous practice because you  already have the foundation and finances to maintain your kingdoms. Kawawa talaga ang mga Pilipino. Wala na silang mapag-pilihan dahil puro magkakamag-anak lang ang tumatakbo sa election.  

    If i may recommend, and as a form of challenge to our beloved Senators and Congressman, pass an urgent bill, calling for a  referendum or plebiscite. Let the people choose from your definition and Lacson’s definition what a Dynasty is. Better, let the people decide if they want this Dynasty thing or not! I am sure that majority of our Politicians will not support this because from the very start, they themselves know what will be the vote of the majority.

Let the people choose from your definition and Lacson’s definition what a Dynasty is. Better, let the people decide if they want this Dynasty thing or not! I am sure that majority of our Politicians will not support this because from the very start, they themselves know what will be the vote of the majority.

    Hindi naman lahat walang ginagawa para sa kanilang constituents pero dapat bigyan opurtunidad ang mga bagong mukha…

    Bawat bayan, lungsod, probinsya at maging barangay may mga dinastiya na puro papogi sa mga nasasakupan.. Gagawa ng proyektong hindi kayang imaintain.. Gagamitin pa ang pera ng mga tax payers sa pagpapaskil ng mukha, initials at pangalan sa mga proyekto nila…

    Kailangan ba korup bago umalis ? Ang problema nga eh ayaw nang pakawalan ang kanilang mga kaharian..

    Hindi ba may probisyon sa konstitusyon na hindi pupwede ang Political Dynasties ?

  • MarcyPulilan

    I think the point of the anti dynasty bill is that by nature Filipinos consider blood thicker than water and having relatives in a very sensitive place of power in our political system opens up the temptation of blood being thicker than water when the question of protecting the family or the Filipino people comes up. This is where collusion and cover ups will start to happen when there is a conflict of family vs not family. By nature we Filipinos are “family first” before country. So with dynasties in sensitive places of power, we cannot afford for this to happen. Nothing to do with corruption, it is a question of how hard to put the country first ahead of our families when the time to choose between the two comes.

  • MarcyPulilan

    So to Cayetano and the other dynasties, are you prepared to put the interests of the Filipino people ahead of your family? Answer carefully for if the true test comes in front of you, it will really be hard to choose… and painful too. You either get hated by the Filipino people or someone very close to you and it will have impact on you long after you are no longer in power. The anti dynasty bill will protect you from being in that situation.

    i hate to AGREE with Sen Cayetano on this… this anti-dynasty law is double-edged and unimplementable, unenforceable and impractical. as much as we don’t want the same ‘BAD’ names holding power in our government, neither do we want GOOD politicians be ‘blocked’ from holding power because they have family members serving or who have served in the government. it is a breach on their BASIC Human Rights and individual Freedom.

    Dynasties drop down to two types: (1) the dynasty who want to ‘continue’ a started but left unfinished GOAL/TASK for the good of the people, or (2) the dynasty who wants to stay in power to ‘guard’ their own INTEREST (that will be put in jeopardy once they lose the power).

    So it’s up to us VOTERS, really, if we want to stop or perpetuate a dynasty in power!

    If nepotism is not allowed in government, so should dynastic rulers. No family has the monopoly of talent, integrity, ability and intellect in serving the people. Ours is just some form of monarchy specially in the local government levels.

    Sen Cayetano should refrain discussing the merits of dynastic rule since his family could be within the definition of a dynasty. Can anyone have an even chance to win as mayor of Taguig against the wife and sister-in-law of senators with P200m annual pork barrel each?

    Power corrupts.  If Cayetano had not been a senator, he possibly would have the same mind set like us saying that dynasty is not good.  We call it sense of delicadeza….

    We elect different people in the senate because there is no one person or family who has the monopoly of ideas.  The more diverse the personalities in the senate is, the more ideas that will come in.  A family who is represented in the senate can already share his idea to his father, sister or brother who is a senator. He/she need not run for the same position to advance his agenda.  For the sake of delicadeza, you give the chance to other people because we all know that other people also have ideas or proposition that may never cross the mind of other people.  The more diverse the people in our public office is, the greater chance for progress.

    We have senators who had been serving for decades but until they had not define what a political dynasty is.  Let us vote for a candidate who can aptly define what a political dynasty is.  Certainly, Cayetano couldn’t do it.

  • vince_bugaboo

    Cayetano, you and your co-politicians who all belong to political dynasties make your SALNs available to the nation’s scrutiny and we will determine who among you is/are corrupt so that, according to your warped logic, we can allow those “not thieving dynasties,” wherein you imply you belong, to run unhindered. But before we let your entire families to officially run in groups of three or ten for whatever positions  we also demand that all of you itemized your pork barrel  expenditures during your entire terms because your not so subtle assertions that you, yourself,  are not corrupt simply smacks your beautiful face because your ilk can also childishly and foolishly claim that they are “good” like you, hence they should also be allowed to form a dynasty. See, you don’t and can’t solely own protestations of innocence, Cayetano, can you digest that?

    Corrupt political dynasties will have a hard time to exist if there is accountability of every centavo that the politicians receives from the government. The Freedom of Information Law, if properly written, it will prevent most of the corruption or at least prevent stealing of the taxpayers money entrusted to the politician for the needs and benefit of their constituents. It will also apply to all politicians including those from dynastic family. These information should be accessible to the public. After all, it is the taxpayers money they are spending, right?

    Mr Cayetano, dynasticism is precisely that, a corruption of the principles of democracy. If you can justify dynasticism, you can justify plutocracy,oligarchy and eventually monarchy. It’s all but degrees. You honestly feel that your powerful families are the best the motherland can offer? Come on, that’s how absolute monarchies began. Be a statesman and look beyond your self interests.

       “Insulting the minds of educated Filipinos” may be right, but this guy Cayetano thinks he is the only “educated” one, kaya akala niya ini=insulto niya yung mga tanga, lalo na Taguig.

    The statement or defense of Alan Cayetano on political dynasty is a very clear sign self-serving interest because he knew very well that he and his sister Pia Cayetano are both in the senate. Whether corrupt or not is still a dynasty when you and other members of family and close relatives are running for electoral post even if different positions in districts, provinces and towns.

  • jeffrey_01

    Senators Pia & Alan Cayetano are redundant in the Senate.  One less donkeyhole is better than two assescrappers.

  • pedronimo

    Para sa akin, one politician, granting he’s qualified, in one family is tolerable, fair, and square na iyan in a democracy. Pero Magkapatid at mag-asawa  mag-ama, sabay-sabay suma-sawsaw sa pulitika ay hindi na po democracy but gluttony na po iyan. Arroyos, Angaras, Belmontes, Binays, Cayetanos, Enriles, Revillas, Estradas- mga dynasties po iyan.

      Greed is a better word.  To add more to the word……..loosing their good conscience because “greed” taking over their mind.   Decency and respect are longer relevant to the way they treat the filipinos.  All in the name of……..money and power.

    “If you have relatives in government and all of you are clean, isn’t that better than being the only one in government from your family but you’re quite corrupt?”..

    Ambabaw na palusot. A very arrogant statement na parang sinasabi na ang mga Cayetano ay exempted sa sinasabi ng Constitution. Mr. Cayetano, it’s not a question of whether the political candidate is competent, corrupt or not, it is a question of whether political dynasty is good or bad for the nation; and the constitution has decided it IS bad.

    At least igalang natin ang Constitution, o kung sa tingin nyo ay mali, well, baguhin nyo muna  ang Constitution bago nyo babuyin. Legislator ka pa naman.

  • mjp78

    I would like to make the following points:

    Corruption and political dynasties do come together sometimes, but to directly infer one from the other is not correct. The point here is that we need to put democratic safeguards. 

    Mr Cayetano, have you ever wonder why most government forms these days do not adopt a benevolent dictator style of governing? BECAUSE IT IS SUBJECT TO ABUSE!!! THAT IS THE POINT!

    Again, Mr Cayetano have you ever wondered why we have different branches of the government? IT IS CALLED CHECK AND BALANCE!!! Because it is easier said than done to elect non-corrupt, competent people. If we follow your logic, then i suggest we really revert to the Benevolent dictatorship, as long as we find that “benevolent” leader that is. 

    This is one of the reasons why the media should keep inquiring…keep reporting…the public gets a glimpse of the views of our leaders..their thoughts, ideas…etc. Now do we still wonder why this bill is not yet a law?

  • jga94

    There is nothing wrong with political dynasty per se BUT this is part of this country’s BULOK political system that breeds corruption and discourages diversity in the composition of government….kaya tayo paurong…pare-parehong mga opinions ang naririnig natin kasi iilan lang mga pamilya nagkokontrol sa gobyerno…..

    Kaya nga dapat ipagbawal ito…give chance to others naman!

    Ang hirap sa mga ito….WALANG DELICADEZA….

    I can understand that there may be some families whose children grows up in a political environment so they really have a tendency to be in public service as well….pero hindi naman holding a political office lang ang means of public service…pwede part sya ng NGO’s, civil society groups who are the watchdogs of the govt…..andaming pwedeng ways to serve the public….obvious lang talaga na hindi naman public service ang habol nila kundi PERSONAL and FAMILIAL INTERESTS….SANA KONTING SAKRIPISYO NAMAN…..

    Okay sana si Cayetano sa akin…pero with what he said….tanggal sya sa list ko…tama na na nandoon si Pia Cayetano….

  • jga94

    Correst nga sya na may ibang political families ang corrupt and yung iba hindi….some political families may also have more than one brilliant mind to offer….BUT….yun nga eh…..sino naman tayo para sabihin kung sinong mga pamilya ang mabuting political dynasty, sino ang hindi…..THERE IS ALWASY A TENDENCY FOR THESE FAMILIES TO BE TEMPTED TO EXCESSES BECAUSE OF THE IMMENSE POWERS THEY HAVE…kaya nga the Constitution specified a section for political dynasties……kung gusto nyo talagang tumulong….kahit wala sa position, may paraan para makatulong…..

  • Descarte

    November pa lang, we have 5 months to go, one by one these candidates are committing political suicide …

    They are making it easy for us to decide whom not to vote for come May…

    Sa kabila, doomed na sina Sonny Angara at JV Ejercito dahil sa Senate Bill 3214…

  • AllaMo

    No, Mr. Cayetano. Everything in any dynasty is wrong for the development of democracy. Dynasties are a throwback to feudalism – Which is really where the Philippines’ democracy has been stuck. No thanks to cayetanos and their ilk. And, all thanks to an electorate so undeserving of a democracy.

  • gnob16

    well, the Constitution prohibits political dynasty and Mr Cayetano as a Senator swore to uphold the Constitution and all other laws of the country!

  • Rap88

    NO TO POLITICAL DYNASTY. NO TO THE CAYETANOS. allan, how dare you say that there is nothing wrong with political dynasty, what? consolidate and perpetuate your clan to rule in the Philippines? screw you…

  • Arnell Bamba

  • pinoyyouth

    Simple lang po Sen. Cayetano, the constitution bans Political Dynasty. Whether you and Sen. Pia is  corrupt is not the real issue. The issue is, the constitution bans political dynasty to allow other to serve the country. Sa tinagal po kasi nyo sa Senado, halos pareho kayo ng stand ni Sen. Pia, so nagiging redundant lang kayo…Try naman po natin yung iba na may ibang pananaw, anyway, malay natin mas mag-work yun.

  • Denzel Boksingero

    Corruption is just a symptom, Senator. Political dynasties are among the problems causing this symptom. 

  • picker_blend

    sayang po kayo “honorable” senator alan p. cayetano. ang ganyang baluktot na pag-iisip ang isang magandang halimbawa na kung bakit ang mga kalahi ninyo ay hindi na dapat sumunod sa yapak niyo. ano ito, “mana-mana” lang?

  • nakatutok

    tama ka..there’s nothing wrong lalo na pa NAKIKINABANG ka ALAN…

    • Francis81

       Sabi ni Alan Cayetano: There’s nothing wrong with political dynasty, kahit itanong niyo pa sa tatay ko, sa kapatid ko at sa asawa ko.

  • Yxon

    isn’t it unfair and a big advantage if you are the son of the outgoing incumbent? why not also give chance to others to serve the country?  dynasty promotes corruption and malpractices in the govt;  your idea is okay, but those true government servants are seldom seen in politicians.

  • UrHONOR

    THERE is HONOR among clans of political families.

    Motto of Political animals:  “Magpakarami ka, magpapakarami din ako.”  Paramihan tayo ng mapaparami. Mas marami tayo, mas marami tayong mapaparami. Yong sa atin ay bomoboto, hagisan lang ng kakapranggot na buto, ayos na ang trono.

    Motto ng mga bomoboto: “May mga nangloloko, e, di paloko tayo”.

    Huwag ipagpalit ang inyong boto sa 13 pirasong buto.  Ipakita at ipalasap natin sa mga kabayang mangloloko na ang linoloko nila ay marunong ding mangloko ng mga loko-loko.

  • ruben_bush

    dapat one at a time…. isang cayetano lang sa senado o conreso o sa barangay…..si pia na lang….pag tapos na term niya, eh ikaw naman.  si binay tatakbo sa vice presidente, dapat magbitiw si jun jun sa pagka-mayor, si ate sa pag ka congresista, at si mama rin. ay naku, ayan gumaya na rin si pacyaw, pati si brother pacyaw at jinky tatakbo na rin…. tapos baka si mama dionosya na rin…tapos ano pa??? mga escalera brothers sa congresso??? ay mag abroad na nga lang tayong lahat kung ganyan…tiyak na lulubog na pinas!!! 

  • virgoyap

    The constitution says political dynasty is wrong. Sen, Cayetano said there’s nothing wrong with political dynasty. What are we going to follow the Constitution or Cayetano?

    DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS PIECE OF S— AND SEND HIM AND HIS ILK TO OBLIVION.

  • jurbinsky77

    To get rid of political dynasties, the solution is to get rid of private funding of campaign materials including broadcast media airtime.

    In lieu of Sen Angara’s proposal, here’s how I see it –

    The election process should be funded by the government. There is no reason for an elected official to resort to stealing to recoup his/her expenses.

    Billboards will be erected for all official candidates and each having an equal allocated space with his rivals.

    No privately-funded campaign materials or braodcast media airtime.

    Candidates should be properly nominated by his organization. Candidates shall be made to swear his/her loyalty to the Constitution. He shall be compelled to swear to not commit corruption. He/she should prove his/her moral uprightness and leadership experience or adequacy of intellect. He should be asked why he/she seeking the opportunity to serve the people.

    No candidate should be of first degree cosanguinity with an incumbent in any elective or appointive position.

    For national level, television debates will be conducted to ascertain the suitability of the nominee-candidate and they shall be aired throughout the country.

    For regional and local levels, each candidate will be allowed to present his/her platform or program 3 times before the elections; with all his/her intended projects printed and posted in the community halls.

    VP Binay will treat these suggestions as personal attack on him.

    Whether or not political dynasties are involved in corruption or not, THE CONSTITUTION provides that it is the state’s policy saying IT SHALL PROHIBIT  POLITICAL DYNASTIES. If you’re saying nothing’s wrong with political dynasties then propose a constitutional amendment erasing such provision.
