With the National Elections so close at hand, we are both tensed and excited to see where our nation will go. Who will lead us? Who will bring us out of this dump that we are in? It is in this time that we have to learn how to look past all the color, glamour and noise of the campaign. We have to look past celebrity endorsements and other endorsements by influential people. We have to start thinking by ourselves and examine our hearts in silence start thinking very deeply about our choice.
We have to find a leader who has the qualities we need. We do not need the richest, the most good looking or the most popular. What we need is a leader who possesses the following qualities that Aristotle gave us: Ethos (Character), Logos ( Logic) and Pathos ( Emotion or Heart).
Our Choice is still Gilbert Teodoro because he has strength of character.
In the election campaign, who pushed for a positive campaign? Who fought a gentleman’s war? When everyone was busy bashing each other, our candidate of choice was serving people. He always did what he needed to do and he took the high ground. He worked. He finished what he started. He doesn’t believe in defeat.
With regards with his critics, he didn’t fight back. He respected their opinions and took it like a gentleman. He stood above the attacks, with the resiliency of a rock. He took it like a gentleman. He did not bash other people, nor criticize them. He didn’t need to take low blows or make a desperate appeal to sympathy by using old people and dead parents. He stood on his own. He made his own name with his own strength.
He is independent and he uses his own strength- He didn’t falter when GMA left him hanging. He didn’t waiver nor lose hope. He kept on going. In fact, it fueled him to campaign harder. It fueled him to show people that he was never her puppet. He stood above everyone else and showed everyone that he was someone not to be trifled with. But he did it with class. He is calm and collected. He doesn’t hit below the belt or play funny games. He smiles and answers with respect. Don’t you want your country’s representative to be as cool as that? Do you really want to have a person who doesn’t know the meaning of restraint to be the face of our country? No. That is why we need him.
We need someone like Gilbert Teodoro to show the world that we are not nincompoops, nor we are not oompa-loompas from Lala Land. We need to show the world that the Filipino people are respectable, hospitable, smart and beautiful people. In his Presidential race, the one who shows most promise for this is the one and only , Gibo.
He is a man to be emulated. He is a man that we are proud to call our president. He is a man who will represent our country. He is trustworthy. He is loyal. He is transparent. He is true. He shows silent strength that is what we need in these noisy times.
He is Gilbert Teodoro. A Man of Character and OUR 15th PRESIDENT.
Our Choice is still Gilbert Teodoro because he is a Great thinker.
We need a person who can think for himself. We need someone who has the proper education, the proper credentials and the proper IQ to help think for the whole nation. The President is the brains and mastermind of the whole operation, he does not really need to be a man of action ( we prefer that that would be the role of Mr. Vice President). We need someone who has the ability to think and give us fresh ideas. We need someone who can represent for us on the world stage. We need brains not brawn.
Gilbert Teodoro has that. He is practically a genius. His list of scholastic achievements is impressive and that alone made me admire him. He speaks intelligently. He thinks before he speaks. He is articulate and can voice out what is needed to be said and done.
Gibo is not only a scholar, but a pilot, a man who knows how to defend the country as the former Secretary of Defense. He has the tactical know-how and strategy to keep us out of harms way and to deal with those who wants to raise arms against our nation. Can we save our country by simply praying and crying out and declaring PEOPLE POWER every time? I don’t think so. Can we save our country through political advertisements and double-dealing? No. But we definitely can defend ourselves if we have a good pilot at the helm – someone who knows what he’s doing instead of someone who is clueless.
Many would say that if that’s so, then we might as well consider Dick Gordon. Dick Gordon is a close second in my book, but he is a man of action. We need that quality as our Vice President. But as a president, Richard Gordon may not possess the breadth of knowledge that Gilbert Teodoro has. On the other hand, why would we trust our country to someone who can’t think for himself? Why should we trust our country to someone who trusts that the Magic will make him win this race. This is a country, not an imaginary kingdom We need someone with a good IQ and a sane mind.
We need someone who can talk for us and not smile and nod. We need someone who can understand our problems and think of solutions. We need a big brain to help us make changes in our lives. This is what our candidate offers.
Face it, we need Gilbert Teodoro a man who we can trust that would think of ways to better our country. We need a man with a big brain to represent us in the big leagues.
Our Choice is still Gilbert Teodoro because he has heart.
Imagine being at your dad’s funeral when you learned that there was a tragedy somewhere in Leyte. What would you do? Would you stay with your family and mourn for your father or would you get up and go out of your way to go and help those who are in need. If you were Gilbert Teodoro, you would do the latter. Because Gilbert Teodoro actually left his father’s wake to pilot a plane to take relief goods to those affected by floods in Leyte. He did this because he had the capacity and the ability to help. He also did that because he was a man of service and a man with a big heart.
He is a selfless man who jumped into the waters of Ondoy to help out people. He thought of ways to help and set it into action. As long as he is capable, I know that Gilbert Teodoro will do it.
There is constant criticism that he is too upper class and that he does not appeal or cannot relate to the middle and lower classes. However, Gilbert Teodoro wants to help. He is oozing with sincerity. He doesn’t expect anything in return. He wants to save lives, he wants to help. He wants to bring us out of this rut that we are in.
Gilbert Teodoro is a smart man with a big heart. He is compassionate. He has a strong heart – a heart of a Filipino. I know that he loves each and every single individual
He has emotions and he shows it. He’s neither a dead fish nor a robot. He is human and that’s fine with me, because I would rather have a human president than a resident drone. He’s not Superman and he knows it. Yet he is doing super things for everyone.
Gilbert Teodoro never claimed Utopia. He never claimed that he can singlehandedly change the country. He never promised a perfect world. He simply offered us what he has, his brain, his talent, and his heart for the service of the Filipino People. He never said he could do it all. And that is something that everyone else never said.
Gibo believes in the Filipino people. He believes that together, we can make our country a better place.r. He gave the world of Philippine Politics a run for their money and gave it a fresh face. A face that is positive and looking forward to a brighter future. A face that will launch, not a thousand ships, but a fleet of people who believe that we can do it! We can change the Philippines. We can make our country proud.
We need him. We need Gilbert Teodoro. We need a great thinker. We need a big heart. We need a man with strength of character. We do not need the richest, the smartest, the most charming nor the most powerful to lead our country. We need someone who is REAL and that is what Gilbert Teodoro offers: A chance for a REAL person with realizable plans to take us to realizable goals. We need someone who offers us the world and gives us nothing. We do not need magic. We need someone who is real.
NO matter what other people say, no matter what other people do. He will be and will still remain our candidate of choice. If he loses this campaign, that means that the Philippines is not ready for a president like him. The question is, if we let this chance pass when will another Gibo Teodoro appear in our country?
THIS IS WHAT WE BELIEVE IN:
WE BELIEVE IN A PERSON WHO HAS HEART, MIND AND CHARACTER
WE ARE NOT THREATENED BY ANYONE, THEREFORE I AM FOR GIBO
WE ARE OUR OWN PERSONS, INDIVIDUALS WHO THINK – THEREFORE I AM FOR GIBO
WE ARE NOT INFLUENCED BY MONEY, SWEET TALKING NOR POWER – THEREFORE WE ARE FOR GIBO
