Political dynasties loom large in the results of a pre-election survey on the senatorial race.

JV Ejercito, Jack Enrile and Nancy Binay—offspring of the three leaders of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA)—remained in the winning circle of the senatorial race if elections were held between Jan. 17 and Jan. 19, a recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey found.

Ejercito, a son of ousted President Joseph Estrada, was No. 4 with 53 percent of Filipino adults saying they would vote for him, according to the SWS January 2013 Pre-Election Survey, first published in BusinessWorld.

Jack Enrile, the only son of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, was ranked eighth and ninth, getting 46 percent, while Nancy Binay, eldest daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay was No. 12, with 43 percent.

Grace Poe-Llamanzares, former Movie and Television Review and Classification Board chief, broke into the list of probable winners for the first time in three SWS pre-election surveys, clinching the 10th to 11th place with 45 percent.

It was a huge leap from 13 percent in the previous survey, where Poe, an independent, placed 20th.

She is on the slate of the administration’s Team Pinoy, the new name of the alliance of the Liberal Party (LP), Nacionalista Party (NP), Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) and other parties.

The rest of those in the Magic 12 were six reelectionist senators plus former Bukidnon Rep. Juan Miguel Zubiri and former Las Piñas Rep. Cynthia Villar, wife of outgoing Sen. Manny Villar.

1,200 respondents

The noncommissioned survey used face-to-face interviews with 1,200 respondents nationwide, who were made to choose from a list of 33 candidates.

The survey had a margin of error of plus-or-minus three percentage points.

Edged out from the winning list was former Sen. Richard Gordon (UNA, 36 percent), who took the 14th place—down from 12th place in the previous survey, where he garnered 37 percent.

Twelve candidates had a statistical chance of making it to the winning circle, with four candidates from UNA, two candidates each from the NP and the NPC, and one candidate each from Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) and LP-NP.

Sen. Loren Legarda of the NPC still led the senatorial race.

The survey found 65 percent of adults said they would vote for Legarda, 3 percentage points down from 68 percent in the December survey, which she also topped.

Sen. Francis Escudero, an independent and also of Team Pinoy, retained his second place spot with 62 percent, up from 61 percent in the previous round of survey.

Occupying the third spot was Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano (NP, 60 percent).

Sharing the fifth to sixth place were Sen. Gringo Honasan (UNA, 48 percent) and Sen. Koko Pimentel (PDP-Laban and Team Pinoy, 48 percent).

In seventh place was Zubiri (UNA, 47 percent), followed by Villar (NP) who was tied with Enrile Jr. (NPC) at eighth to ninth places with 46 percent.

Sharing the 10th to 11th place with Poe was Sen. Antonio Trillanes (LP-NP), who also garnered 45 percent, followed by Binay.

Aside from Gordon, those who barely made it to the list were Aurora Rep. Sonny Angara (LDP, 39 percent), Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV (LP, 34 percent), former Sen. Ramon Magsasay Jr. (LP, 33 percent) and former Sen. Jamby Madrigal (LP, 28 percent). Angara is the son of outgoing Sen. Edgardo Angara.


Among those who posted significant gains compared with the previous survey were Zubiri (formerly in ninth to 10th place with 41 percent), Honasan (formerly in eighth place with 43 percent) and Ejercito (formerly in fifth place with 49 percent).

Those who slipped in the rankings included Villar (formerly in fourth place with 51 percent), Enrile (formerly in sixth to seventh place with 46 percent) and Binay (formerly in ninth to 10th place with 41 percent). Lawrence de Guzman, Inquirer Research and Gil C. Cabacungan

    Pati pangalan Binay, talagang pilipinang pilipina…parang yon kapitbahay namin si Aling Binay.
    Voter for own, our own native of the country….Nancy Binay….daughter of Pinoy Idol Binay.

  • sopingac

    There is really no point of voting anymore especially for the national posts. They are basically the same sets of families or the same type of politicians who have ruled this country for so many years and I don’t expect anything positive to come out if they are again to be in office.

    All these surveys are made to sway or influence public opinion and perception and the media is also in cahoots in pushing for their favored candidates. I will not waste my time lining up in this 2013 election as I can do other better ways to help my country than vote for these politicians.

    • cogito728sum

      If you don’t go to the polls and do your civic duty as a well-meaning citizen, then the success of the crusade against political dynasties will be diminished, the future for a better governed Philippines bleaker.  One vote is one vote.  And all it takes is one vote to get the majority.  You never know that the vote you did not cast was all that’s needed to weed out those pernicious dandelions that spoil the political landscape.  Besides, this survey perhaps reflects only those undiscerning segment of the voting populace, the part of the rabble that easily shift to the popular name.  If the well-informed like you allow this to go unchecked, what chance is there for a better government to emerge?  I, therefore, implore you my friend not only to reconsider you position, cast away your frustrations, and join the rest of the campaigners against these predators that prey on the ignorance of the voters and the coffers of the people.  And if I may make a suggestion, tie a string on your right thumb, the one you would use to attest to  your precious vote, so you won’t forget to ‘REMEMBER THE WOODS.’  Merci and good luck!

      • sopingac

        I have seen this script so many many times and the reality is, these very same kind of people will again get elected.There is simply no alternative worth enough to be voted.

        The likes of Hontiveros is no different from Trillanes, they will be easily eaten up by the old corrupt system and they need the support of interest groups to win.

        I am just being realistic.

      • cogito728sum

        My friend I respect your being realistic as all of us should be.  But let’s put a very thin line of differentiation here.  It is my position that we could be realistic without necessarily being defeatist nor fatalist.  The moment we give up to the idea that there’s no alternative, then there’s no sense of trying.  And its when the efforts to remedy the problem wanes, when the towel is thrown in, when the trying is given up that the struggle is totally lost.  Perhaps we are just temporarily blinded by the glitter of the gold, by the inordinate effect of joining the crowd attracted by what is popular, or the unfounded fear of changing what we have been inured to, that we’d rather prematurely resign than continue the struggle.  But there’s an alternative.  The alternative involves a tortuous path–not a simplified ‘daang matuwid’–of reversion to the glorious past when the Filipino electorate took his right of suffrage responsibly at heart.  Here’s a true to life example.

        Sixty years ago, I knew of a man of poor heritage, who thru sheer determination and scholarship graduated from the premier law school of the country then.  The electorates of his congressional district encouraged and supported his candidacy for congress.  They contributed a peso here, five pesos there for his election campaign.  When he got elected and served his constituency  for 15 solid years honourably,  his principal repayment to them was an untarnished name of a public servant.

        Sadly, the reverse is true nowadays.  We elect those who can put the highest tag for our votes.  We sell our most precious gift of citizenship to those who have no qualm of raiding the treasury to recover their investment.  And we cry corruption?

        My friend, if we have to have a decent government, we have to reverse the reversed process.  I may sound like playing with words but what I meant here is we have to go back to the olden days when selling votes was a moral crime.  When the electorates look for the winning “manok” they can confidently bring to the arena.  I know this is easier said than done but it can be done.  It is when we abdicate our responsibilities as citizens that we all end up, true to what Lacson said, “losers.”  Good luck and merci!

    • kapayapaan_1900

      Kabayan, huwag naman na hindi ka boboto!  Kailangan ka ni Juan de la Cruz lalo na ngayong matindi ang pangangailangan sa ‘yo.  Maliban diyan, wala na tayong puwedeng ibangga sa mga trapo.  Doon lang sila puwedeng lumaban sa atin ng parehas.  Hindi ka ba natutuwa na pantay pantay lang tayo sa puntong ‘yan.  Isa lang ang boto ko, mo, o ni Asiong Salonga?  Sino ba ang namili ng “senatorial line-up” ng dalawang partido?  Hindi ba sila sila lang?  Taktika nila ‘yan na paliitin ang “choice” na halos kulang na lang ang isubo ang kanilang mga anak sa bibig natin.  Kinunsulta ka ba o si Juan de la Cruz sa kanilang pamimili?  NUNGKA!  Papaliit ng papaliit ang ating tsansa na magkaroon ng mabuting pamamalakad sa gobierno.  It is always a choice for the lesser evil which means a government run like hell.  It’s time to bring them back to their senses!  Kung sa inaakala mong hindi makatarungang manalo ang tatlong nakalarawan dito, then vote and scratch them from your list.  Ang hindi mo pagboto sa tatlo ay kabawasan sa kanilang bilang pero karagdagan naman sa mg taong gusto mong umugit ng ating pamahalaan tungo sa pagbabago.  Tama sa kabayang COGITO728SUM. .

    Ang mga original na trapo, matandang trapo at recycled na trapo ay nagkaintindihan sa iisang layunin ang bumuo ng partido na ang pangunahing layunin ay upang maging mga senador ang kanilang mga anak na sina JV Ejercito, Jack Enrile and Nancy Binay , yan ang napagkasunduan nila Binay, Erap at Lolong Johnny kaya nabuo ang partidong UNA… Kung may ipinapangako silang  para sa paglilingkod sa bayan ay bulalklak na lamang ng kanilang dila…

  • simondj

    with the advancement communication (INTERNET, FACEBOOK &TWEETER), the voters will help more to decide who to vote for.

    • Bayang_magiliw

      But not enough to reach the masses so we still need to keep them informed via the conventional way.

      • spider69

        yes, tama ka. mas marami pa rin ang walang computer & modern tech communications. kaya dapat magtulong-tulong tayo to reach mga botante especially sa mga rural areas para imulat sila sa katotohanan at para sa kinabukasan ng Bansang Pinas.

        Yes, and we need to be doing it now and fast. One voter at a time in our sphere of influence. 

      • Vincent

        you are right, bayang g. kaksaunti lang ang mga pilipinong may access sa mga pc/online. there should be a massive conventional way to impart our message to our compatriots all over the country.

    • balimbing

      Wake up Filipinos here and abroad please help your native land “Philippines” for progress and future of our children. Let’s join together ,start and begin the campaign now till election comes to educate and inform our co-Filipinos to select & vote wisely by NOT voting senatorial race that belong under political dynasty such as……. To reach most thru flyers, Internet, cellphone, landline phone, Facebook,blog, tweet and media.

      Political dynasty is evil ,greediness and corrupt. There is no doubt as long Filipinos are unified and with God help we will succeed.

  • Vincent

    All of the above-pictured characters represent a very disturbing portent to the future of our country and us, Filipinos. I can’t help but shiver at their satanic grins.

    Warning to all: If these charlatans and their ilk win despite our vigilance and determination to prevent them from securing government offices like the Senate and Congress, we are doomed; for what else can we do if that happens, in some future elections and beyond?

  • Weder-Weder Lang

    The youth is the future of the Philippines. Please vote wisely. The power is in your hands. You can chose not to vote for political dynasties. The youth vote (18-37) alone is 33.7 million strong, assuming all were able to register as voters. In 2010, COMELEC’s total of officially registered voters was around 51 million for all age groups. The youth vote is also likely to be internet savvy among all the age groups.

    18-22 years old    = 9,694,781 million
    23-27 years old    = 8,949,614 million
    28-32 years old    = 8,017,298 million
    33-37 years old    = 7,069,403 million
    Total         =            33,731,096 million

    (data source from nsbc,gov,ph, extrapolated to 2013)

    33.7 million-strong of youth vote is enough to make or break senators who come from political dynasties. It took less than 20 million votes to get into the senate in 2010. (data source from COMELEC).

    01 Bong        19,513,521
    02 Jinggoy    18,925,925
    03 Miriam    17,344,742
    04 Drilon        15,871,117
    05 JPE        15,665,618
    06 Pia         13,679,511
    07 Marcos    13,169,634
    08 Recto        12,436,960
    09 Sotto        11,891,711
    10 Osmeña    11,656,668
    11 Lapid        11,025,805
    12 Guingona    10,277,352

    The challenge in the youth vote compared to other age groups is lower voter turnout.


      Birds of the same feather quack together. That means young candidates have a big chance to win out of youth vote. Ban the youth from polling boths. They have no wisdom but with eyes only for latest fashion. PH election for leaders is doomed by the history blind youth votes.

      • kismaytami

        Don’t blame only the youth, it was those old and tenured ones who stir the election. We’d rather have a psychological test to determine if a voter is gullible or not. Gullible voters are the ones who should be banned.

      • ARIKUTIK

        You are right ! “Gullible voters are the ones who should be banned”. Here’s a scientific fact proven with out doubt > The youth 18 – 22 are gullible simply because their brain for politics is not yet fully developed. They are only focussed on fashion and love search. The most fashionable in the week before voting day is the one the youth will choose. The main reason how an Abnoy was seated in Malacanang. The experienced  ones can see a figure of an Abnoy but the youth have no brain of experience to figure out how a pervert speaks and flash a dogs smile.

        Grabe naman…
        Socrates himself did not claim to know better than others.

        Socrates: Pareng Tzu, galing si Chaerephon sa Delphi temple, nakakita daw siya ng napakagandang dalaga na makaka-usap ang mga diyos kaya tinanong niya ito: “Who is the wisest of men?” Ang sagot ng dalaga: “No one is wiser than Socrates.” Nakakataba ng puso, di ba?

        Lao Tzu: Bakit daw ikaw?
        Socrates: Tinanong ko rin ang aking sarili kung ano kaya ang dahilan ng diyos? Eh, hindi naman nagsisinugaling ang diyos, kaya totoo ang sinasabi niya. Ang alam ko, wala akong alam, maliit man o malaki.

        Lao Tzu: Para malaman mo na ikaw ang pina wise na tao, kausapin mo ang mga matatalino dito sa Athens. At kung meron kang makita na mas wise kaysa iyo, eh di mali ang diyos.

        (Nag-umpisang nakipag-usap si Socrates sa mga matatalino sa Athens, pero wala siyang nakita na mas wise pa kaysa kanya.)

        Socrates: Pareng Tzu, tama ang diyos. Walang mas wise pa kaysa akin.
        Lao Tzu: Paano mo nalaman na mas wise ka?

        Socrates: Kasi kahit wala silang alam, inisip nila na may alam sila. Ako, alam ko na wala akong alam. Eh, di mas wise ako kaysa kanila, di ba?

         Lao Tzu: Tama ka pareng Soc, “The wise man knows that he doesn’t know. The fool doesn’t know that he doesn’t know.”

        Good try except that even in an allegorical way of speaking, two personalities separated by more than two centuries, cannot possibly have known much less have had a dialogue with each other.  The only relevant observation in this dialogue is that indeed Socrates never claimed to have possessed wisdom having asserted thus: “The only thing I know is that I know nothing.”  And what I know of him is that he would rail at those who pretentiously claim to possess unlimited knowledge on all subjects only to reveal confusion in the end.  Merci!

    DoNt vote foR political dynasties. If the father is a wakwak, the son is also a wakwak. We keep on harping that people wins election by popularity , not by qualification. Let’s make sure we change the mindset of the people. Let’s go to our towns and barrios and educate the masa. If we just complain and do nothing about it, then we deserve the officials we are getting.

    The Philippines have a three kings. Come may, the senate will have their own three princes/prince, nancy binay, Ejercito, jack enrile. As if sawang sawa na tawo sa three kings, pumapasok na naman ang three princess. When will our agony end. Filipinos, be vigilant

    NANG bago ko mabasa kung sino yong mga naka-litrato, akala ko may ulat tungkol sa mga nahuling salot sa lipunan…..isang magba-balut, isang magpa-payb-siks (5-6), at isang katulong na nagnakaw sa amo.  Mga kandidato pala para seneytors.  Kung sabagay, mas masahol pa nga pala ang mga seneytors kaysa ibang kriminal.  Si Lascon ang makakapag-paliwanag nito ng mabuti.

    At tungkol naman sa pagpili ng iboboto, sana hindi malimuitan ng mga kabayan ang mga walang silbing nahalal dahil sa wala namang nagawa kundi ang magpoporma at manggulo: Sotto, Revilla,  Estrada, Lapid, Arroyo, Angara, Honasan, et al.  Huwag-naq-huwag magkakamali na namang iboto ang mga TNL na mga anak-anak at mga kamag-anak ng mga TNL na MMM na bayan….ikalat sa sabihan ang lahat ng mga kakilala ninyo para maiwasan ang pagguho ng kasalukuyang namumukadkad at namumulaklak na ekomiya, buhay, at kabuhayan sa bayan.

    For God’s sake when will the Filipino people learn their lesson? Voting for these UNA candidates means prolonging the misery of the people. Ang hirap sa Pinas, iyong mga isang kahig isang tuka, ang mga walang pinag-aralan ay madaling lokohin ng mga kandidatong ito. Makita lang sa TV o makamayan ay kuha agad ang boto. Di na ba kayo nagsasawa sa mga Enrile, Estrada, Binay at Maceda? Talagang wala na sigurong pagasa sa Pilipinas pag nanalo pa ang mga taong ito. I can honestly say that majority of the Filipino voters are idiots and morons if they will vote for these candidates.

  • sopingac

    We are actually helpless here. There is no way any candidate can win without the support of media giants like ABS-CBN, GMA-7, PDI, SWS, etc.

    Just how could the likes of Nancy Binay and Jack Enrile be on the top 12 when me myself who regularly follow the news knew very little about these peoples qualifications.

    Real change is not going to happen anytime soon and that is the sad reality. I am not a pessimist and I am just being realistic here.

    • where_I_stand

       Allergic ka kasi sa family name na Enrile at Binay.

  • sopingac

    There is no hope for the Visayas and especially Mindanao to get their fair share of development coz it is still the old imperial Manila imposing its will as to who they want to win the election.

    It is ironic that many of these politicians supposedly topping the senate race actually came from provinces with very hig poverty incidence and could possibly not win if they run for their district as congressmen.

    There is no point in voting for the senate. Perhaps, voting for the local races still make sense as we know the candidates better and the media and surveys have less or very little influence in the outcome.

  • speaksoftlylove

    This is the sad state of the political landscape in the Philippines. We have millions of bright citizens with untainted family records that could put these relatives of existing politicians to shame.
    Please, Philippine voters, vote with the future of the country in mind. Electing a member of a political dynasty in the senate is like another 6 years of hell for the constituents and the nation in general.  These sons, daughters, and relatives of political clans will only rape the nation of its richness, slow the growth of the nation, wreck havoc to the welfare of the nation, and endanger the nation’s security through their inefficient lawmaking skills.

    Look at some prime examples of inept lawmakers that we presently have:
    -Sotto, the senate wasted so much time on his ill prepared speeches.
    -Estrada and Revilla,what tangible things have they done for the country as a lawaker?
    -Enrile, all he is good for is to change allegiance for his own benefit and not for the country. Remember, he was the co-architect of Martial Law and since then he only had become more financially richer, but how come his constituents have remained poor?

    Political dynasty is equivalent to incestuous relationship; it would weaken the genetic trait of our elected officials leading to inefficient lawmakers and thus lead to a bastardized legislative body like we presently have.

    No More Political Dynasty, Please. Vote for your children’s present and future welfare in mind.

    Personally, duda ako sa survey na to, lalo na nung previous survey.  Was really wondering how come Nancy Binay from nowhere made it to the top 12.  Aside sa mga taga makati, sino pa ba ang nakakakilala kay Nancy?

    But hope we cling, with Pnoys endorsement now seen on TV, actual results will be totally different.  Although some LP candidates may not be as good, but I think, still, they’re far more better than those at UNA.

    Filipinos who have the misfortune not being able to escape the power and the
    abuse of these shameless & greedy political families in the Philippines will
    just have to meekly take it with a grain of salt. What else can they do but

    ang mahirap nito, ang mga nakaka-intindi at possibleng nakaka-alam sa mga kumakandito ay yung nandito at nagpopost ng mga kuro-kuro; kaso ang maraming hindi nauunawaan ang kwalipikasyon ng mga kandidato at umaasa lamang sa mga ‘sabi-sabi’ ng mga kapit-bahay ay walang kakayahang mamulat sa riyalidad.  at sila pa mismo ang bumubuto sa popularity ng mga ito.

    kailangang magkaron ng pang-masang brigada na harap-harapang imulat ang ating masang kababayan sa tunay na layunin ng mga kumakandidato.  imulat sila sa tunay na pagkatao ng mga ito.  ibulatlat sa kanila ang maayos at baluktot na kandidato.

    ang internet ay di sumasaklaw sa maraming lugar sa pilipinas at yan ang target ng mga kurap na kandidato dahil alam nilang bulag sa katotohanan ang mga ito,  tanging alam lamang ay ‘kilala ko ang apilyidong iyan’ di kaya’y ‘magkano ang ibibigay nila’ sa mga ito.

Ito ba ang daan matuwid ? ginagamit din kase ng Malacanan ang Pork Barrel pang suhol sa mga Tongressmen at Senatongs.

    Yes, definitely don’t believe in ” S U R V E Y ! ”


    It is just a tools to condition the mind of the filipino citizen.

    My only advice is if you love your country and free of Dynaty  and Crooks then – LET YOUR VOTING POWER WORKS  –  NO VOTE FOR UNA CANDIDATES AND THEIR OFFSPRING – PLAIN AND SIMPLE !

    However if they try to buy your vote by all means get the money for that is PEOPLES MONEY – BUT DO NOT VOTE FOR THEM.

        Why are we always in poverty & war?

        Why are we NOT allowed to have a POWERFUL ARMed FORCES ?

        Why are we having lunatic leaders & family of traitors as our champions & leaders?

        ANSWER : Foreign Interest/s manipulated us because PHILIPPINES is the RICHEST country in the WORLD!

        “ Literally philippines is a PARADISE in a land of GOLD blessed by GOD ( Gold,gas Oil & Deuterium )..

        “ we the most evolved & intelligent human specie are walking literally in a land of gold “…the REAL ” EL DORADO ”


        An archipelago comprising 7,107 islands, the Philippines is categorized broadly into three main geographical divisions: Luzon, Visayas, & Mindanao. In addition the BENHAM Rise.. 250 km wide new territory. The Philippines’ rainforests and its extensive coastlines make it home to a diverse range of birds, plants, animals, and sea creatures. It is one of the ten most biologically megadiverse countires and is at or near the top in terms of biodiversity per unit area. Our beautiful islands are the envy of the world we are surrounded by soft white & pearly black beaches. Most of the mountainous islands are covered in tropical rainforest and volcanic in origin. The Apo Reef is the country’s largest contiguous coral reef system and the second-largest in the world. The Philippines has a tropical maritime climate and is usually hot and humid. There are three seasons: the hot dry season or summer the rainy season ; and the cool dry season . The perfect climate system in the Philippines makes its air and atmosphere free from man made pollution after the system of storms cleansed the territory during rainy season & disinfecting the land by exposure to the sun’s ultra-violet rays in hot dry season. This is the best country in world to live in if the insurgency problem caused by poverty is solved by the tapping of the nation’s resource thereby freeing the people from poverty.. Located within the Pacific Rim of Fire, the Philippine archipelago is hypothesized as having been formed 43 million years ago. Its 7,109 islands rest on top of underwater mountains formed by the outpourings of molten rocks from the earth’s interior, thus creating an ideal setting for mineral deposition. (After Wolfe, J.A., “Origin of the Philippines by Accumulation of Allochthons” in The Philippine Geologist July- September 1983 Issue, p.17) In the archipelago, resurgent volcanoes particularly provided access for rising gold-bearing solutions which cool to the geotherm of 300 degrees Celsius at about 400 m depth. At this point, the gold began to precipitate and epithermal gold deposits were formed over geologic time of 1.5 million years from the present time. (After Wolfe, J. A., in International Mineral Development Sourcebook, 1993)

        HUMAN resource…

        we are the ONLY Country in the world ..who speaks 175 languages & dialects with literacy rate of 93.4% . Most speak fluent & write foreign languge like english , spanish,nihongo,arabic, mandarin,hindi, & malay than country of origin..some elderly can still speak latin…Average Filipino can at least speak 3 foreign language & 2 dialects..while the rest of the world can speak only english & their native tounge…the people are educated, fun loving, resilient, hospitable & industrious… in fact , currently the economy is heavily reliant on remittances which surpass foreign direct investment as a source of foreign currency. Therefore the more population more benefit for the economy. The Philippines need a HUGE population & Army if it intends to tap the resources otherwise foreign invasion can easily land on its shores & control can be had without a sweat.…

        MINERAL resource…..

        Initial Lode and placer GOLD DEPOSITS occur in most of the 73 out of 83 provinces in the Philippines.The ten provinces were not properly tested yet due to internal conflicts & war. The 1996 $2.1TRILLION value resource estimate based on conservative 10% ( $21 trillion total estimate ) maybe deficient and could double to $42 trillion or more of the actual resource.. . … such amount could catapult this country to first world status .. we could even buy americas $16 Trillion debt..Also, we have .$26.3-Trillion Oil Reserves ..Country’s Untapped Deposits Mostly In Spratlys Philippines News Agency April 25, 2012, MANILA, Philippines- The Philippines is “sitting on a mountain of gold,” with untapped hydrocarbon deposits estimated at $26.3 trillion, mostly found in the disputed Spratly chain of islands, more than enough to free the country from the shackles of poverty.Also if we are able to claim SABAH… It has the potential to produce 1 million barrels of oil a day,” “The estimated reserves from the present Sabah oilfields is 1.4 billion barrels of oil and 7.7 trillion scf of gas.” …Malaysia govt does not even give our sabahan brothers share of their on wealth ONLY PETRONAS ( govt corp ) which give sabah a PITIFUL royalty of 5%…

        That amount is even without considering the UNQUANTIFIABLE value today (maybe thousands of $ trillion ) of the resources that can be found in our new territory called the BENHAM rise a 250km wide domain which is perceived to contain very huge oil & gas deposits & the envy of world for we are the proud owner of the vast DEUTERIUM deposits with a 868 mile long find in Philippine trench. With these resources properly tapped we are bigger than america & arabia combined.. : .yet many potential mineral & natural reserves are still HIDDEN n our archpelago…

        BENHAM RISE new Philippine territory 250 km wide –GMA LEGACY

        Despite its proximity to the archipelago, the plateau was previously not included in the territory of the Philippine Islands. On 8 April 2009 ( GMA govt. filed the claim to UN now we owned it.. eventually our history & after the political vendettas ….legislature might rename the benham rise to GMA rise to give honor to its finder/claimant .. ), the Republic of the Philippines lodged a partial territorial waters claim with the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf in relation to the continental shelf in the region of Benham Rise. The UN has officially approved the claim in April 2012. The Philippines may soon be able to provide its own energy through Benham Rise, an underwater ridge to the east of Luzon which is believed to have mineral and gas deposits. The Philippines claim over Benham Rise is “very relevant” because scientific surveys indicate minerals and natural gas in the area. Solidified methane was found during mapping activities and the “probability is very high” there are oil deposits. There may be more natural gas than oil, and is considered better because it is cleaner. Benham Rise, which is bigger than Luzon, Samar, and Leyte combined, is being claimed
        solely by the Philippines

        GREATEST of them ALL- “ DEUTERIUM the Gift of Nature “- MARCOS LEGACY

        the Philippines trench has the LARGEST DEPOSIT of deuterium with 868 mile long 52 mile wide “If we allow production even for just a portion of this natural deposit… the Philippines will already become a first world country.. what more if we produce a quarter of it… Deuterium has several commercial and scientific uses today. It has become much more than the heavy water many countries sought after during World War II.Deuterium, a form of concentrated hydrogen, is used in the production of natural gas now utilized in Canada, America, Germany and Sweden, to provide fuel for cars, trucks , jet planes, & deuterium fuel for fusion reactors.”Deuterium can replace gasoline, (liquefied petroleum gas), (liquefied natural gas), Avgas, etc. in powering all types of internal combustion engines including maybe SPACE ships of the future & can be use in space explorations…. It does not emit pollutants or any harmful carbon monoxide and does not cause any environmental problems because it is in the water family. We can build electric nuclear plants in the middle of the URBAN cities of the world ! we will power & feed the world at the same time.Just imagine the philippines at the forefront of human evolution, science , technology & space exploration

        The GOOD news is we have UNLIMITED deposit of it!

        “SHARE the DREAM “..

    Ang pork barrel ng mga tongressmen 70 million a yr ,70 x3 yrs = 210 million , minimum binibigay ng mga contractors 30% yung iba 40% . so kung meron silang 210 million sa 3 yrs 30% noon is 63 million yon ang napupunta sa bulsa ng mga corrupt na tongressmen . sa mga senatongs naman mas malaki 200 million a yr x 6yrs =1.2 billion . 30% ng 1.2 billion is 360 million ang napupunta sa mga bulsa ng mga corrupt na senatongs. dyan nila ang kinukuha ang pang gastos sa election. kung wala ng pork barrel mawawala na ang political dynasties. yan ang solution alisin ang pork barrel.

Wag po sana tayong maging one sided lang.. maging basehan po natin ang track record at accomplishment ng bawat tumatakbo..mapa LP man o UNA o sa kahit anung coalition.. maging matalino po tayo sa pagboto..  Salamat po

    • magiting78

      Pareho Cla mga dinastiya…at pareho ng hangarin maglingkod s pansariling interest….Vote wisely…don’t vote LP and and UNA

    • Herbert V.

      Sino ba ang nagpapaunlad ng bayan? mga senador ba? sino ang nag-control ng pera ng bayan? yan mga senador kaya hindi umunlad ang bayan natin.

    • MarcyPulilan

      To be fair to all, huwag bumoto ng member ng dynasty family whether UNA, Liberal, NPC, o anu pa man.

      • Magandana

        yan po ang pagiging unfair.. wag nating tignan sa iisang sitwasyon lang.. pag may isang tiwaling leader lahat na damay damay.. NO. that a No  NO po.. kung wala po tayong ibobo sa kanila sinu na po ang mamumuno sa senado?? iba iba po sila ng kakayanan, ugali at prensipyo. karamihan po sa kanila nadadamay lang sa mga maling paratng ng mga tao. Ito pong tatlo ( JV, Jack and Nancy ) marami pa po tayong d nakikitang gud side nila bgyan lang po natin ng pagkakataon yung mga sarili natin na mas kilalanin po sila and yung iba pang nasa dynasties.. 

      • MarcyPulilan

        Agree po ako sa inyo Maganda, totally unfair po itong suggestion ko, kaya lang sa sama ng situasiyon natin sa ating mga leaders, hindi na natin alam kung sino ang tapat at hindi sa bayan. Kagaya ng Diyos, binaha niya ang mundo maliban kay Noah at mga hayop. Malamang may mga mabubiti ding tao na naparusahan at pumanaw na hindi dapat kaya lang sa sama ng situasiyon kailangang i renew ang face ng Earth. Kagaya ng situasiyon natin sa ating mga pinuno, mas mabuti nang lahatin sila para siguradong magkaroon tayo ng magandang simula. Noon tayo ang biktima ng tiwaling pinuno, ngayon naman silang mga politiko naman ang mag sacrepisyo na hindi maboto kahit sila ay tapat at magaling. In the end, lahat tayo ang makikinabang ng pag hindi pag boto ng dynasties.

    As long as MAJORITY of the electorate are not well educated – having little or no education at all worst cannot read or write, lives in poverty level, hungry (hand-to-mouth existence) & misplaced/ twisted moral values we will continue to experience this political dynasty.  This political dynasty we are experiencing for quite number of years already is a REFLECTION on us as Filipinos.  We deserve the kind of government we have now.  We are creatures of our owned habit. Is the political dynasty good or bad?  Your guess is as good as mine.

    • MarcyPulilan

      Kaya nga iyang mga political dynasty families never supported educating the masses, kasi nga naman kung tumalino ang tao, wala nang boboto sa kanila.

    It is the less educated voters who decided the fate of our country. we have to accept the reality. our country has no hope.

  • MarcyPulilan

    Kung anti-dynasty ka, hindi ka boboto ng may kamag-anak na incumbent. Kayo rin, kung gusto ninyong mag patuloy ang palpak na pamamamlakad sa Pilipinas, iboto at ituloy ninyo ang political dynasties. Kailangan nating ay Change, change the dynasty families.Iyong dynasty family candidates ay “loose change”.

    • Julian Makabayan

      mag isip ka nga! sinong kandidato ang walang kamag anak na nakapwesto? eh! Ultimo si Bro Eddie Villanueva ay may anak sa gobyeno. si Secretary Joel Villanueva, TESDA Director General na dating CIVAC party list Representative. ngayon kung ganyan kayo mag isip talagang walang mangyayari sa pilipinas. subukan nyong alamin kung bakit sila gusto ng tao, anu ba ang nagawa na ng pamilya nila. di kaya sa haba ng pinag lingkod ng nila sa tao kaya sila pa din ang gustong iboto. 

      • MarcyPulilan

        Marami pa ring Pinoy na walang kamag anak within two levels of consanguinity sa mga current politicos na bulok na pinapatakbo ang bansa natin. Pag two levels na ang layo, mahina na ang impluwensiya. Buti na ang bagito, hindi pa alam mag nakaw kaysa sa dynasty na naturuan na ng mga bulok nilang kamag anak ng pagiging tampalasan. Subok nang palpak ang lahat ng mga politiko natin na nagpapatakbo ng Pilipinas, mas compiyansa na ako sa bagong hindi kilala, para mawala na ang nakataguyod na kultura ng mga Politoko na pag nahalal sila meron na silang license to steal.

      • Julian Makabayan

        mas maganda kung track record ang pagbabasehan mo! di kasi porket bagito di magnanakaw yan! lalo na kung walang magpapatunay ng kanyang pagkatao. di ba nga ang kapag ikaw namimili di ba ang binibili mo ung subok mo na ung kalidad ng produkto. kaya bago ka maglagay ng bagito tingnan mo muna baka mababa naman ang kalidad, baka masayang boto mo pag tumunganga na yan sa senado… sayang lang di ba!

      • MarcyPulilan

        Tama po kayo Mang Julian Makabayan. Dapat track record, eh kaso po ang track record ng mga dynasty family members eh puros basa na at sirang sira na. Sa tagal sa kapngyarihan ng mga pamilyang ito eh sila lang ang umuunlad. Wala akong maisip na miyembro ng mg political dynasty families na may nagawang ika giginhawa ng mga Pilipino, kayat kung track record ang pagbabasihan, eh bagsak pa rin itong mga pulpol na mga political dynasties, lahat sila.

  • Hagler

    Same names, same family, same intentions ( to protect their own interests),same corruption, thats why Phils still left behind in Asia. Kakasuka muka nila, parang wala ng qualified sa pinas with what they showing here. Their dynasties will keep on going and going if masses still choose trapos. Vote wisely!

    There should be a law to ban these surveys as election time nears. It’s being used as a tool for people who can’t think for themselves.

  • Para sa iyo din ito

    Nag kakampanya ako laban sa anak ng 3 dirty old men ng UNA – JV Ejercito anak ng impeached president and convicted plunderer Erap, Jackie Enrile the killer and son of martial law author and administrator, Nancy Binay anak ng napakakurap na panganay na anak ni Jojo. Silang 3 ang magpapatuloy ng kawalanghiyaan ng mga tatay nila!

    • Julian Makabayan

      ganun ba? bakit po ung tatlo lang ang pinagiinitan nyo! di ba sina pia at allan ay anak din ng dating senador at magkasama ngayon sa senado.. at ung isa sonny angara di bat anak din sya ng kasalukuyang senador edgardo angara. at si bam aquino ano ana po ba ang nagawa nito sa bayan ni kahit brgy capt di dumaan tapos basta ang alam ko gusto nyang kopyahin ang mukha ni senador ninoy. baka manalo nga naman! pababayaan ba ni PNoy yan insan nya? di ba! isang malinaw na panlilinlang sa taong bayan na tatlo lang ang pinag iinitan nyo. maging patas din naman kayo.! kung makapanghusga kayo ng kapwa nyo akala nyo ang gagaling nyo… pwe parepareho kayong nagmamalinis!!! tubuan ka din ng hiya kasi po Para sa iyo din ito

    Kung totoo lahat ang mga ipinapangako ng mga pulitikong mga ito – matagal nang naka-angat ang ekonomiya ng bansa. Ang problema ay ginagawang hanapbuhay ang paglilingkod sa pamahalaan – a public office is suppose to be public service…magkano lang naman ang sahod ng isang senador o kongresista. Ang habol ng mga ito ay ang pera na makukulimbat nila sa pamamagitan ng lagay, porsyento o red tape.

    Sana mahiya naman sila – pera na kinakaltas sa sahod ng mga mamamayan ang ipinapakain nila sa kanilang pamilya – sana man lang mapalitan ng sincere and at least, good public service. 

  • David

    goodbye Philipines! kelan titino mga botante. kelan mabubuksan utak nila sa tamang pagpili ng kandidato. kelan magpapagamit at gagamitin ng mga pinoy ang mga kandidato…sarap lang maghihiyaw sa inis hahahaha

  • David

    minsan mas ok  na isiping bakit di nalang electoral college ang gawin din sa pinas… tapos sisigaw ang mga uto utong botante na bakit sila aalisan ng karapatan. dapat ang right to vote binibigay sa taong alam gamitin ito… wala lang…. umaasa lang naman ako tulad ng ibang pinoy…na SANA….

  • David

    SI ZUBIRI na mandaraya baka manalo pa? so anong message nito: we allow cheats in the govt… ano ba yan.

    Popularity contest?  These are sons and a daughter of billionaires…they can buy survey results, they can even put up their survey teams….and during election time they can buy votes…WTF…

  • Roseee Sanchez

    To be fair, hindi lng naman ang mga Ejercito., Enrile at Binay ang political dynasties sa bansa. Masyadong na-singled out naman nila yung tatlo. Hindi ba ang pamilya din naman nina Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, Bam Aquino, Villar at Angara ay kasama din sa MAITUTURING na political dynasties!?! Ang asawa ni Alan Cayetanoo, ay Mayor ng Taguig at Senadora naman ang kanyang kapatid na sina Pia. Ganundin ang mga Villar kung saan pinamumunuan naman nila ang Las Pinas kung saan Congressman ang kanilang anak na si Mark habang incumbent Senator naman si Manny Villar. Kung balwarte ng mga Cayetano ang Taguig at Villar ang Las Pinas, gayundin ang pamilyang Angara sa Aurora kung saan Senador naman ang kanyang ama. Si Bam Aquino na pinsan naman ng kasalukuyang Pangulo ng ating bansa, diba political dynasty ding maituturing yon? Mukhang nagiging SELECTIVE lang ata ang media at ang tao sa pagsasabi at pagtuturo kung sino ang may political dynasties dahil mukhang nakakalimutan nila na maliban sa pamilyang EJercito, ENrile at Binay ay mayroon din palang Cayetano, Aquino, Villar, ANgara at Gordon ang matagal ng naghahari sa ating pamahalaan. Ang maganda lang siguro sa mga Ejercito, ENrile at Binay eh maganda yung kanilang track records at performance sa public service. #JustSaying

    • joe

      tatlo lang sila sa picture. bakit hindi lahat ipinakita mga pictures? 

      • Roseee Sanchez

        Yun nga ang point ko, nagiging ‘selective’ lang yung pagtingin at pag-determine ng ‘political dynasties’. 

      • Danilo Navarro

        hag kalilimutan suarez sa quezon revilla ng cavite at sino kaya makakapag sabi sa boong pilipinas na ang nakaupo sa pwesto sa lugar nila walang ama ina kapatid na nasa pwesto

    • balimbing

       Sinabi mo hindi lang Ejercito, Enrile at Binay at mayroon pang iba. THE BEST PUBLISH AND INFORM THE PUBLIC ang mga mukha ng mga ito mga senatong at representatong para hindi na iboto sa halalan.Begin the campaign now, NOT TO VOTE itong mga corrupt
      na nabibilang sa political dynasty.

      • Roseee Sanchez

        In the case of Ejercito, (I’m talking about JV alone, please note) wala pa namang kaso about sa kanya. Kasi kung meron man, hindi siguro siya mananalo sa TOYM (The Outstanding Young Men) in the Philippines for Public Service (Government) kung meron siyang ganung kaso. I just read it sa Wikipedia. Kinopya ko lang:) 

    • sl1

      It is because the three are perceived to be corrupt and opposite to what you said of having good track records. There were lots of bad news coming from their district or region that will contradict it. Probably you are not aware of the bad news about them or just pretending to be blind not to see the real situations.

      • Roseee Sanchez

        As par as I know, hindi naman na-involve yung tatlo sa sinasabi mo. Kung corrupt sila, bakit hindi sila nakasuhan? At bakit walang nagsampa ng kaso laban sa kanila. Eh anong tawag mo sa C5 anomaly na kinasangkutan ng Villar, APECO Project na kinasangkutan ng mga Angara at Hacienda Luisita ng mga Aquino? Hanggang ngayon, dinirinig pa rin yung kaso nila. Ako ba ang bulag o sadyang ikaw na walang alam sa katotohanan.?

    Sonny Angara is the best Choice than Trillanes , Ejercito, Or Honasan.

    PNoy’s didication and remarkable honesty is paying off. WE should support him and make sure the next president will be like him in honesty.


  • LegalJustice

    To All Filipino Citizen,

    Remember these faces they look the same and sound the same and one thing in common.

    Offspring of Estrada, Enrile and Binay a DYNASTY.


  • Leonardof

    When will the Filipinos ever be wise in choosing leaders? I cannot imagine how Zubiri is in the winning circle after he was found to have cheated in the past election? How can a son of a president convicted of plunder be in the top five? And also, why is the son of an assasination-faker and martial law architect be on the top ten? WHY? WHY?

  • Albert Einstien

    DAPAT me mayaman din  na magpolitical–ADVERTISE ng NO to POLITICAL DYNASTY …no to EBAC.!

  • Albert

    Dynasties will only rule if the filipino people are stupid enough to vote them into office.

    Guess they will win then…as history has shown just how many stupid people there are.

  • Julian Makabayan

    eh sir malamang abstain ka this coming election! hehehe parang wala yatang kandidatong ganun.
