Brod Ben N. Muego, your premise that the country has dwindling resources and balooning deficit is not yet a fact. As a matter of fact, I think they are quite premature. We are still below the manageable cieling in our debt management
If my memory serves me right the acceptable ceiling for borrowings its not above 3% of the GDP. There are no big external borrowings yet incurred by the Duterte Administration. If ever, these are soft developmental loans that may not have arrived yet. Many are aids, however.
The free matriculation has been afforded from the judicious fiscal administration of the Duterte government. First, there are marked increases in collection coming from the BIR AND CUSTOMS.
THAT THERE ARE NO MORE DAPS AND PDAPS MAKE THE ROUTE OF PUBLIC FUNDS TRAVEL VERY FAST TO THE SUPPORT OF PROJECTS CONTEMPLATED AND PLANNED TO GIVE SOCIAL JUSTICE TO THE MARGINALIZED, THIS IS THE ESSENCE OF ALL DUTERTE PLANS, PROGRAMS AND STRATEGY OF GOVERNANCE- EMPOWERMENT OF THE PEOPLE , WHO WERE ABUSED AND TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY THE power elites and the oligarchs from the inception of the Philippine Republic after the second World War.
Duterte, through incessant declaration, has pointed this out and now more and more people see that the resources of the state have in previous administrations been used and abused by a power group of oligarchs and political elites.
Many public funds also come from government corporation, i.e., Pagcor among others. With judicious use of public funds and grants in aid, it has been demonstrated by Presudent Duterte that it can go a long way in honoring the common man and the common good thru empowerment of each and every Filipino. President Duterte in less than a year has gone a long, long way ahead in everything that he planned to do and promised to do for the Filipino people. He has redirected the political, social and economic compass to point to the right direction.
My take is that we need to give him our support. For even psychologically, a leader needs to be reassured that he has the support of his grateful people, who in their own small way are trying to begin to march in cadence with him. Six years is such a long time for this fast moving, fast thinking, no fanfare, indefatigable , loving and patriotic leader, who loves his country so deeply and in more ways than he can say. We may not all agree with his method but what we can not take away from him is or are the credit for his accomplishment that are, in so short span of time, already clearly manifesting their salutary effect / s ! items that suitable for women over 40 to wear of the formal occasions
