Why, probably because there is less belief here in what the western media has to say and a belief that the western media has no business interfering in Philippine business. The western media was loudly proclaiming that Duterte was a dictator and guilty of murdering drug dealers while Duterte's popularity was running at 91%.

An attitude of "Go handle your own business and stay out of ours."

agree completely..   I know in Canada the baby boy Trudeau complained liberally about Duterte's dictatorial ways..  but then Trudeau froze the bank accounts of Feedom Convoy demonstrators in Ottawa.  Sometimes it feels that western leaders have lost touch with reality.

My father never had a problem turning around and wacking me in the back seat while he was driving. 

What will be the next steps? Easy to say: Ferdinand Marcos Jr. will jail anybody who ever called him BongBong and Imelda will demand her shoes back.

On the way back from Tacloban today, there was a checkpoint entering our city. We all started pulling out our vaccine cards, rolled down the window to the PNP officer and he said Comulec check, d

So if Bongbong is so evil, why is he probably going to win?

I heard it explained a long time ago and I cannot repeat verbatim but; This is Philippines.  Corruption is normal here. A non corrupt politician could never get elected here because snakes just don't trust non-snakes,

Not sure why you quoted me, except to do so cynically perhaps.  I was not mentioning the west.  But since you bring it up.  People in the west are still naive enough to believe they can vote in someone who is not corrupt.  Filipinos have lost that naivety.

When I got married here in 1993, one of my brothers-in-law to be asked me what is the difference between the government of the US and here. My answer to him was, that here the government is corrupt from the bottom to the top, and in the US, it is only corrupt at the top.

I'm not so sure that is true anymore. There seems to be corruption at many levels in the US as well.

However, with 97% of precincts reporting, Bong Bong has twice as many votes as Leni for Pres, and Sara has three times as many votes as Kiko for VP. For those who were hoping the election would be close enough that they could throw it are NOT going to get their chance this time. I think that for the yellows (and pinks)...

The people have shown pretty conclusively that they have had a gut full of liberal Aquino policies. They look back and ask themselves, "Have things improved since Marcos was removed from power?" and the answer in almost all cases is, "No."

Aquino was better at standing up to China than Duterte was.

This thread is about Philippines Politics, not other countries politics...

Keep your political views on other countries in the CR.

So I guess in the end EDSA was just a waste of time and of course a US CIA inspired event.   If only we had TikTok in the 80's  the folks would have known better.

And that's what happens when a nation's media isn't controlled by parasites; the pinkos actually lose. Well done, Philippines.

Why do you assume that Bongbong will govern as his father did when it comes to political opponents and corruption?

That is a good question, so I tried to come up with combinations of fathers and son presidencies in any part of the world where the son governed vastly different from the father.  I could not come up with any.  What examples are you thinking of?

The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

I am not thinking of any combo, but the culture wouldn't allow it. Both the Army and the PNP are totally different entities now that have stringent protocols in place now to fight corruption. So even if he had the desire to regress to that type of repressive governance, he couldn't find the backing to do it.
