Gay power high on ‘Magsaysay is my guy’

Struggling in 16th place in the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, former Sen. Ramon Magsaysay Jr. is counting on gay power to help boost his bid to land in the Magic 12 of the May senatorial elections.

Four weeks into the campaign period and still out of the winning circle, the son of the late Philippine President has won the support of several party-list groups, one of which represents the country’s marginalized gays.

On top of that, he has won the backing of people with disabilities, senior citizens, workers, farmers and scientists.

Magsaysay pledged to work for the interests of these sectors if given another term in the Senate.

“It’s a good sign that these party-list groups are behind our candidacy because it means that they believe in the kind of public service that we offer,” Magsaysay said on Tuesday.

List of supporters

“We are inspired to do more to push for the advancement of these sectors,” the administration candidate, who retired from the Senate in 2007 after two consecutive terms, said in a statement.

The party-list groups that Magsaysay said had expressed support for his candidacy included Ang Ladlad, the party-list of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) Filipinos; Agham or Alyansa ng mga Grupong Haligi ng Agham at Teknolohiya para sa Mamamayan representing teachers, scientists, students and science and technology practitioners; and the Partido ng Manggagawa at Magsasaka.

The Pilipinos with Disabilities Party-List, the Veterans Freedom Party (the electoral wing of the Veterans Federation of the Philippines) and the Senior Citizens Party-List also support Magsaysay’s comeback bid.

Other groups that have given Magsaysay their backing are the Bantay Bayan Foundation Inc., a group that pushes for good governance; Amin or Anak Mindanao; Alliance of Volunteer Educators; and the Federation of Free Farmers.

‘Much to be done’

Magsaysay has expressed disappointment with the latest SWS survey results but expressed optimism that his yet-to-be-released media placements and an intensified campaign effort would push him into the winner’s circle.

“I am affected by the results of the survey, of course. But that’s not enough reason to dampen my strong resolve to be of service to the people,” Magsaysay said.

“Modesty aside, I’ve accomplished a lot in my 12-year stint but there’s much to be done still,” the 74-year-old stalwart of the ruling Liberal Party said. “That’s why I would want to continue my work as a legislator and push for good governance as well as needed reforms.”

During his stint in Congress from 1995 to 2007, Magsaysay sponsored such laws as the Anti-Money Laundering Act that penalizes attempts to legitimize proceeds of crime, and the E-Commerce Act that makes electronic communication admissible as evidence.

“Hopefully, I am optimistic that we’ll do good in the next round of mock poll surveys and be among the top 12,” Magsaysay said. “We will continue to reach out to the electorate and study further the areas in which we should intensify our efforts in this campaign.”

Magsaysay said that at the time the latest SWS survey was held, his multimedia advertisements had not been released.

    so for sure magsaysay has abnoy’s support now … no doubt he’ll win

    I’ll still “Go with the Guy”…, in this Senatorial Election.

  • EdgarEdgar

    The best LGBT support Jun Magsaysay can get is in the person of our homosexual president Noynoy. With Noynoy working behind Jun Magsaysay and giving him a big thrust forward, let’s just hope Jun doesn’t embarrass his late father. 

  • Noypi11

    This reasoning of Jun Magsaysay about the LGBT (gays) is a good basis for people to replace him with other independent senatorial candidates.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=723182268 Danton Remoto

       This is Danton Remoto, chairman of Ang Ladlad Party List. Senator Magsaysay gave the same reason in the article to LGBTs as well as the other sectors. Walang pagkakaiba. Please read again for your elucidation. Thank you po.

  • thunderbolt01

    Jun Magsaysay is an embarassment to his father. At 75 why would he obstruct a younger relative to have a place in the government. He is already retired so why try to come back? The real reason is to steal the votes intended for Mitos Magsaysay. He is a lackey of the yellow turds. I will nver vote for him. To all the people who intends to vote for Mitos, write her full name in the ballots to make sure your vote will not be stolen.

      Mitos is not a Magsaysay, her husband is. She just wants to ride on Magsaysays.

      The nerve of that woman even using the “Mambo Magsaysay” jingle in order to pass herself off as a Magsaysay to the voters.  She’s a HABANA for goodness’ sake!  Ilusyunada na, impostora pa.  Ganon ba ang gustong ninyong senador?!! Ngayon pa lang niloloko na kayo.  Si Jun Magsaysay disenteng tao, mahusay at subok na. He’s got my vote! 
       

    • x_alonso14

      That’s right, all the people will write down Mitos name and have their ballots nullified. Schumck! Hey, Mitos, your supporters are losing you votes! hahaha

        It is possible with the hokus pcos machine and corrupt officials.

  • Mr Moonlight

    im 60 years old from the south, i strongly support Ramon Magsaysay Jr. He is supposed, and should, be the topnotcher in this coming senatorial election. His work experiences, his accomplishments, the number of bills and laws that he authored are staggering.
    Wake up Philippines! Dont vote for the names that associated with corruptions, immorality, suckers, cheatings, shamelessness, names like enrile, estrada/ejercito, binay, villar, honasan

      doon kasama si penoy –  sa gay power

  • Philcruz

    The best reason to help campaign for and vote for Jun Magsaysay is because the Church is campaigning for the other Magsaysay, Mitos. This will split the votes of both and Jun may not make it.

    We need Jun in the Senate again. He led the Senate investigation on the fertilizer fund scam. We live in the computer age. Jun’s knowledge and expertise is in this field, too. He was a businessman/senator without a trace of corruption or anomaly to his name.

    Jun Magsaysay is my guy. No. 1 on my list.

  • Dancing Bear

    Still the reverence for old surnames. Just because you have your fathers family name means you are like your father or better. Vote wisely or don’t vote at all and save us from the idiocy of the future. 

    • 444mangyan888

      That’s where wisdom comes in.
      You don’t doubt anymore the good showing of “the man” because you are totally sure that it’s sincere and truthful as the genes and the blood streaming in his veins is also that of “the guy”.
      In the same manner that we will need to look at Binay, Enrile and Estrada. However hard they try to be good, it will take time for us to be convinced…!!! Di baga..??

      • Dancing Bear

         Absolutely not! I am not the same as my father who was better than me and I am deliberately a horrible person. Genes and breeding be damned. The past is a good reference but never the anchor of ones decision. Particularly in a country like ours which has a large voting population under the CDE classes and are more often than not easily swayed to vote by the influence of money and popularity. Until the level of voters education or until such time a strong candidate with iron will or wit comes up….our voting history will keep on repeating itself.

      • kolambogan

        Just do your part and vote if you are so concerned. Help educate the people any which way you can on the right way to vote instead of bad mouthing them to correct the situation. 

      • Dancing Bear

        Bad mouthing? Who the F said I was bad mouthing? You speak-a-engrish boy? I am merely stating a fact. Let’s see, what have you done so far yourself? The last presidential election I was among the campaigners & contributor. Going into the D/E areas to campaign “cleanly” – what do we encounter….these are the replies most often heard or exclaimed “Kung kay (certain x-pres) ito (referring to our campaign) may 500 na tayo?” or “wala bang kasamang pera ito?” or “pahingi naman ng bente jan”. Unlike you, I know my competency and limitations – voters education of that level is beyond me that’s why I stated that there is a need for that. But politicians are all too willing to exploit this deficiency. That’s why our politicians are what they are. As voted by the largest part of our population. And we complain.

      • kolambogan

        I have done my part as a citizen, voted (intelligently I suppose) paid my taxes, contribute a little to the economy, help my fellows in everyway I can, criticize, shenanigans and corruption in the conduct of government and take my stand on every important issues (politics, economics, military, legal even criminal) if you really care to know. I have done all of that in this forum alone for more than 2 years now, a minimum of two times a week. I also do volunteer works. What the good for nothing politicians do is not my concern there are lots of them and they are masters in what they do, they have the 3 G’s they use to the hilt and exploit people’s weaknesses. Now my suggestion was for stronger people I suppose like you be not on the oppressors side, wake up from your complacencies and not blame the oppressed for their weakness, help in educating them instead of labeling them from A to Z. There are only two categories of different labels in life and not the obscure alphabet labels sleek manipulators apply to people. I believe it’s the good or bad, oppressed or oppressors, victims or criminals, have or have not, knowleadgeable or clueless, etc., etc., etc. In which of these categories you do belong, my man?

      • Dancing Bear

        Did you really have to think about this that hard. Nice essay. It doesn’t change my opinion or point of view. But I see that my message doesn’t come through to you. It doesn’t matter to me rich or poor. But yes we have to classify it like that, to identify the problem. Sad to say it has to be a letter between A-Z. I could use numbers. But it don’t make a lick of difference. It still has to be classified. Because I don’t think I have to go to the A&B classes to teach them to be informed voters. I don’t have to tell them not to sell their votes for less than 2 million pesos. CDE, these are the classes that we have to teach to become informed voters. That their votes matter. Because many of them sell their votes because many believe that it wouldn’t matter anyway, so why not make money out of it. Do you know how hard it was to convince them to not sell their votes? But this is also a product of our poor public education system and the environment they live in. So it’s a really daunting task. When I first tried to vote in Saudi, even some OFW’s would tell me that voting wouldn’t matter anyway. It’s just going to be the same sh!tty politicians etc. Then I investigated, found out more of their backgrounds. Then I did, most of them come from places we’d like to call depressed areas. So it’s a mentality thing, and if you’d like to be wholesome and not admit it that it is then I don’t know where you will start to fix it in the first place.

      • kolambogan

        I replied to this last message of yours, but Disquz said it will have to be edited, censored or what. Anyway if it happened to be approved, the last word there is just like your own A&B classes of people.

At paki explain ng iyong pagkakaalam sa Trapo. Sa aking pagkakaalam ang Trapo ay “Traditional Politician”  ay marumi at walang intensiyon kundi ang humawak lamang ng puwesto at magkaroon ng kapangyarihan para sa pansariling kapakanan, magpayaman sa puwesto at ihanda ang kanilang mga pamilya para sa pagtatguyod ng kani-kanilang dynastiya. Si Mr. Magsaysay ay hindi nila katulad sa lahat ng bagay, siya ay naghahaing muli ng kaniyang sarili para maglingkod na tunay, katulad ng kaniyang ama dating Panglong Ramon Magsaysay Sr. para mapabuti ang buhay ng mga Filipino at maayos ang pamamalakad sa pamahalaan. Siya ay hindi nasangkot maski minsan sa mga katiwalian sa kaniyang panunungkulan, bagkus siya pa ang masugid na nagpasimula sa paghalungkat sa ZTE Fertilizer Scam na kinasangkutan ng maraming mambabatas, politico at negosyanteng corrupt sa administrasyong Arroyo, na nagpahirap sa maraming mamayang Filipino lalong-lalo na ang mga magsasaka, mga naghahayupan, mangingisda, pangkaraniwang obrero at maliliit na mga mangangalakal.
