As much as possible, the government should purchase brand new military hardware if it really wants to modernize the Armed Forces of the Philippines AFP, which is widely regarded as one of the weakest military forces in Southeast Asia.

The government has to be proactive and prepare for the worst-case scenario. Our farmers have to be given all kinds of assistance to make up for the projected crop losses because of the drying up of farmlands.

Francis Escudero Quotes about people
#479387 Francis Escudero

In a way, these people have a point. My family name is only Escudero. I don’t have the same pedigree of Quezon, Roxas, or Osmeña families, of those who have become presidents, heroes or wealthy philanthropists. The Senate is the highest elected position that someone from my family has ever reached, and even this, I never imagined I might achieve. .

I believe that every Filipino—rich or poor, young or old, man or woman, educated or not, good-looking or not, pedigreed or not, whether they live in Makati or in the provinces — has the ability, capacity, and right to devote his or her life to serving our country. Because no single person or family has a monopoly over the talent, intelligence, skill, and good intentions for our country. .

Francis Escudero Quotes about education
#479397 Francis Escudero

Here in Manila, how can we worry about the traffic going to work or school, while some remote villages in our country don’t even have schools or jobs?

#479400 Francis Escudero

Starting from the first day in office, this is the only way to urgently address the most pressing problems of every sector of the Philippines.

At the same time, through the passage of the Freedom of Information Bill and a crackdown on anomalies, we will fight corruption by ensuring that the government will be run on a simple principle—that discretion equals corruption.

Francis Escudero Quotes about time
#479402 Francis Escudero

As we devote ourselves to the higher calling of serving our country as president and vice-president, this is the reason we will choose to remain independent, or without party. We believe that whoever runs and serves as president or vice-president should not be member of a single party LP, NPC, NUP, NP, UNA or others. Our party should be the Filipino people. And we should be loyal not only to liberals, nationalists, or other party members, but to every Filipino. .

The book of Philippine history is far from finished. However, does every sentence in our country’s story need to be finished with a period? .

Francis Escudero Quotes about history
#479405 Francis Escudero

Francis Escudero Quotes about history

I totally agree that there is an implementation cost needed to actuate a program. And yes, we need to monitor the implementation of our programs and projects to ensure accountability and judicious use of public funds, but it should not be that expensive. Our government already has an existing machinery and mechanism to precisely do that. We have the Commission on Audit, why do we need this redundancy of functions?The Manila Bulletin .

I have never allocated public funds using the PDAF or budgetary incentives to any fictitious NGOs created by Janet Napoles or anyone to steal people’s money.Bicol Mail .

Francis Escudero Quotes about people
#479418 Francis Escudero

My problem here is quite simple. Those who have plundered the national coffers in billions get to stay in Sta. Rosa or any hospital much to their comfort. Those whose crimes pale so much in comparison with Napoles – the cell phone snatchers and the street snatchers – languish in cramped and dingy jails. It’s like teaching our children that if they must steal, steal big so at least you get to be jailed in the comfort of those special cells.The Philippine Star .

The Philippines, as a country deemed democratic and developing, cannot rest on its antiquated laws that run detrimental and contrary to the exercise of freedom. Decriminalizing libel accords greater protection to freedom of speech and expression.Manila Bulletin .
