Pols needed, but political dynasties ruin democracy

I am not a politician but I do believe that politicians are a basic foundation of democratic institutions. Without the politicians, government tends to become autocratic. In an autocratic form of government, the citizens are mere subjects, not the “bosses” that President Aquino has publicly dubbed them. In a democratic government like we have today, the citizens regardless of status are guaranteed by the Constitution equal treatment before the law. However, too much politics undermines good governance, such that political dynasties rise, thus destroying democratic principles.

Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano correctly proposes that we accept the decision as part of our checks and balances and move on.

By

I agree with Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano when he wished that media would focus more on the magnitude of the crime rather on the supposed difficult prison conditions the senators accused of plunder will have to live with.
