Like religion politics can be a extremely controversial issue. In saying this respect for others opinions should be just that.
What do we have going on in our world in respect to politics? Are we improving or is this world becoming corrupt due to the lack of the above; no respect for one another s beliefs, way of living, and etc……
Let’s start with a conversation on Donald Trump. Mr. Trump is a mogul in the real estate business. After the death of Donald Trump’s father, he inherited somewhere between 40 to 200 million from his dad’s estate. From there he started purchasing football teams, beauty pageants, fashion lines, and television shows (Investopedia, 2016). Most of us know that he also owns Trump Plaza which is gorgeous. Not only is it a exquisite hotel but has a casino within it.
A vital question may be, is Mr. Donald Trump knowledgeable, educated sufficiently to be an advantageous presidential candidate? Does he have those in the field that are advising him or he is auto didactic (self-taught)?
Also why are there so many protests going on? Is this due to miscommunications? Those possibly taking information and interpreting it in various ways. Remember that old saying, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall”. What exactly do we want for our country? Is it peace and tranquillity or is it just the opposite?
There are so many issues related to politics and with it being debatable other things have attached to it like religion. What exactly does religion have to do with politics. Religion in itself is one’s belief in a higher power, a system of faith and/or worship that most of the time is not of this earth, so how could this be linked?
Some have said that they have completely let go of being associated with a specific political party and/or religion. This belief comes from some wanting this world to be united as a whole instead of separate entities. The above comes from questions asked of several different people from various backgrounds. There are beliefs that some have that can impact everyone positively and create that peace and tranquillity that some may be seeking but of course we know that that will never happen especially when there are mixed views that will not bring into existence that repose that few may be looking for.
Quo Vadis Philippines?
The recent disgusting comment of the President Rody Duterte of the Philippines to the US and he uttered the below-the-belt expressed to His Excellency President Obama. But later President Duterte recanted that impulsive comment.
Because of that Obama’s bicameral meeting with President Duterte was cancelled. No more meeting, I think, to happen until President Obama would leave the White House for the new US President.
The Philippines is on the brink to take her breath as to the economic relationship with the US is concerned. Filipinos are worrying about that. Those who voted President Duterte didn’t mind it. They did welcome it for they did respect their President’s act and actuation.
But what about those nemeses of President Duterte? They’re there lurking somewhere, waiting for the appropriate time to wield their own plan for the downfall of the courageous, willed President Duterte.
If you’re asked, what do you think Duterte’s act? Is it disadvantageous to the Philippines? Is it insulting or belittling of the US government in behalf of President Obama?
What really worries the Philippines is they miss the golden egg! Or they’ve broken the golden egg and they don’t know if they could get another one for it. Anyway, it could be another story when the new President of America would take the reign and would patch the “insulting remarks” of the Philippine President.
President Duterte had already taken back his disturbing remarks to President Obama. And he’s waiting for the reply from Obama if there’s or there’s none. The Filipino is hoping that everything would be patched up probably after the ASEAN summit in Laos.
I’m an American. With that being said, I think what President Duterte is doing should be commended. He is doing what he feels is the right thing to do for his country. Obama needs to worry about his own country and about the divide he is putting on the people here. I am tired of the United States trying to act like the world police when they can’t even police our own citizens.
Your country, @evilelf is considered as the “savior” of the world. It’s already a tradition or what the history so recorded about it. All the Presidents of the United States had an International duties and even responsibilities for peace-keeping. And of course, in return, the USA has something to gain. Lately, our President utterly made public his intention to stop the trade relationship with your country. He has reason to do it. He is dismayed for the great destruction made in our country because of the presence of USA military forces. He also cited some vital information which made the country too dependent from the US.
