Dr. José Protacio Mercado Rizal y Alonzo Realonda, executed by firing squad 109 years ago, on December 30, 1896.

If by rebellion you mean to hope and to desire, to labor and struggle by every peaceful means for the liberties of my country, and if for that you demand the penalty of death, then gladly, willingly shall I die.

- Jose Rizal

With they way things have turned out in this country,dear Jose Rizal must be turning in his grave...When will ever see the likes of him again? *sighs*

Strangely enough, even if someone like him turns up again, do you seriously think he can win an election if he runs for public office? The TV and movie personalities will probably just kick his ass. :-(
Oh Gawd,that is sooo sad....Actually,just the thought of those actors/politicians makes me wanna puke.

Then brace yourself. :-) It isn't that unlikely that our next President is one of those TV personalities...:-(
