A Stone over Gold

Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago

She is called the iron lady of Asia for her bold and fearless way in the Senate. She is one of the two roses between the thorns on the Presidential race. She is a lady with strong yet colorful personality. She is the lady in a red blazer, Miriam Defensor-Santiago.

    Though she is always the last on presidential surveys, no one hindered Miriam Defensor-Santiago from running for the presidential post. With over one million votes, she ranks number five on the ongoing vote count.  This year’s election is now Miriam’s third time to run for the post of presidency, but it looks like she will fail again this time.

entiables with promises that are doomed to be broken?


She is a law graduate, a board passer, an active member of the Senate for many years yet people see Miriam as a woman with cancer.

It is sad to think that people let themselves deceived by the empty promises of other presidentiables. It is sad to think that the Filipino people have chosen a stone over gold. But let us give the new President a chance, a chance to prove himself. Maybe he is not that bad at all.
