I’ve been wanting to compare the substance of the platforms of Aquino, Gordon, Villar, Perlas, and Obama. This enough I can say – Nick Perlas is the gold standard in platforms. Aquino and Villar are fluffy talk without the specifics. Gordon is a slacker when it comes to platforms – good for him he’s got Subic but it’s no excuse not to have a platform.
Aquino, Perlas and Villar will retain the protectionist regime that benefits the oligarchs – Gordon is silent.
When it comes to the platform section on governance and the economy – Perlas whips Aquino, Villar, Gordon, and Obama!
How did I get to this conclusion, I’ll show you how. Please see below, mind map generated by mind meister on the approach.
The comparison is available as a PDF – and you can preview it below:
What does the comparison imply?
The platforms presented by the Aquino, Villar, and Gordon seems to think that we, Filipinos are idiots who cannot see through the fluff. We, Filipinos ought to be insulted with the low standards provided by these candidates. As the elections get closer to the home stretch, ask and demand that your candidate substantiate their platform.
Do not settle for motherhood statements. Demand. Assert. Require.
If we are to hand the reins of power and governance to a candidate shouldn’t we see a detailed blueprint of how exactly is he going to wield that power instead of a one-page brochure?
Based on platforms only, Nick Perlas knows exactly what to do – a lot more than Aquino, Gordon, and Villar.
