Ferdinand Emmanuel Edralin Marcos Sr. A leading member of the New Society Movement , he ruled as a dictator     under martial law from until Marcos claimed an active part in World War II , including fighting alongside the Americans in the Bataan Death March and being the “most decorated war hero in the Philippines”. Marcos started as an attorney, then served in the Philippine House of Representatives from to and the Philippine Senate from to He was elected president in , and presided over a growing economy during the beginning and intermediate portion of his year rule,  but ended in loss of livelihood, extreme poverty,   and a crushing debt crisis. After being elected for a third term in the Philippine presidential election , Marcos’s popularity suffered greatly due to public outrage of the assassination of Benigno Aquino Jr. The assassination, along with economic collapse, revitalised the opposition, resulting in them securing a better-than-expected victory in the Philippine parliamentary election. Both of these factors alongside growing discontent and the discovery of documents exposing his finances and falsified war records, led him to call the snap election of

At kung hindi sa mag-asawang Marcos, na diumano’y nagpakulong at nagpapatay kay dating Senador Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, walang People Power.
Strong in relation to other presidents. That is one way to look at it, for sure. By Joe America Democratic principles and institutions have always been an awkward fit in the Philippines. The nation remains tribal in the sense that people are fulfilled by being a part of a power bloc rather than a part of a system of freedoms and responsibilities. Thank you to all who have expressed their understanding and best wishes for me and my family.

Sa kabataang di nakatikim ng Martial Law, ito ang ginawa ni Marcos
Note: This essay was originally titled, Loving Marcos as a right: in defense of historical revisionism. It is sad when self-aggrandizing freedom fighters cry foul whenever anything good is said about Ferdinand E. To them, he is pure evil and that the youth must be constantly reminded about alleged misdeeds during his presidency.
For how could you blame farmers who enjoyed strong government support in the 70s for loving Marcos? How could you blame mothers whose children enjoyed quality education, and who had more food on their tables then for remembering the president well?
Nilibing po kasi sa libingan ng bayani kahit pinatalsik ng People Power. Bakit ginawang Ninoy Aquino International Airport ang dating MIA? Bakit ang dami.
My presence here today is proof that you are my true strength. I never expected that I will be here taking my oath of office before you, as your president. I never imagined that I would be tasked with continuing the mission of my parents. I never entertained the ambition to be the symbol of hope, and to inherit the problems of our nation. Napatalsik ang dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos at iniluklok ang maybahay ni Ninoy na si Corazon Aquino bilang pangulo ng bansa.
I had a simple goal in life: to be true to my parents and our country as an honorable son, a caring brother, and a good citizen. My father offered his life so our democracy could live.

MAKUFMA90 : Sa mga nakaraan ng dekada, magmula ng ako ay namulat sa katayuan ng estado ng pulitika ng aking bansa, ilang beses ko na isip kung may katotohanan ba ang lahat ng allegation na sa bawat Pangulo na nalulok sa pagka Presidente ng Republika ng Pilipinas ay kailangan muna may basbas ang Amerika Gaano ka totoo ito at kung totoo man, bakit nangyayari ito at patuloy na nangyayari na kung tutuusin tayo naman ang may layang pumuli kung sino dapat mamuno ng ating bansa, di ba.
Pumalit si Pres. Cory Aquino pero sa tagal ng kaniyang pamumuno nagkaroon pa rin ng mga katakot takot na kudeta, power grabbing nga daw pero di nagbunga hangga’t sa matapos ang kaniyang termino bilang pangulo At si Tabako, President Ramos, West Pointer graduate, natural alaga at kakampi ng Amerika, sa kaniyang pamumuno walang kudeta, aba GOOD LEADER nga ba. Kanino ba talaga bansang Pilipinas, sa atin bang mga Pilipino o sa mga dayuhan, bakit hindi tayo umaasenso at hanggang ngayon ay umaasa pa rin sa utang Is it true that on every deed the U.

Ang Setyembre sa buhay at kamatayan ni ex-Pres. Ferdinand Marcos Sr.
During those momentous four days of February , millions of Filipinos, along Epifanio de los Santos Avenue EDSA in Metro Manila, and in cities all over the country, showed exemplary courage and stood against, and peacefully overthrew, the dictatorial regime of President Ferdinand E. More than a defiant show of unity—markedly, against a totalitarian rule that had time and again proven that it would readily use brute force against any and all dissenters—People Power was a reclaiming of liberties long denied.
The millions that gathered for the People Power Revolution—the culmination of a series of public protests, often dispersed if at all given leave—was a nation wresting itself, as one, back from a dictator.
An overwhelming majority of Philippine lawmakers decided not to grant ABS-CBN a year franchise, dismissing the request as “undeserving. We thank the committee for allowing us to air our point of view on this issue. At the time, Duterte accused the network of not airing his paid political ads and instead accommodating his opponents.
CHECK YOUR FACTS! (PRO-MARCOS ARGUMENTS AND CLAIMS QUASHED)
In the Philippines, no such museum or memorial is built to remind us of the dark days of Martial Law. No serious efforts to educate the youth about what really transpired during Martial Law are launched. No major actors have been put behind bars for their abusive and oppressive roles in the execution of Martial Law. Three decades after the country succeeded in overthrowing the dictatorship, we watched in utter shock and horror as Bongbong Marcos, the scion of the late strongman and kleptocrat Ferdinand Marcos Sr.
Hanggang ngayon, labing-dalawang taon na ang nakakaraan, maraming Katoliko ang nahihiwagaan pa rin sa himagsikang EDSA, hulog daw ito ng langit. Marami-rami rin ang nagbabale-wala nito, pakulo lang daw ng imperyalistang Amerika. Hindi padadaig ang rebeldeng militar; kung hindi raw sa kanila, walang EDSA. Ano’t ano man, minamaliit ang papel na ginampanan ng taong-bayan sa pagpapatalsik sa diktador na si Ferdinand Marcos. Ang totoo, hindi hulog ng langit ang EDSA. Bawat pangyayari noong apat na araw na iyon ay may matuwid na paliwanag, nailihim nga lamang sa taong-bayan.
Walang himala. Ang mayroon lang ay milyon-milyong tao na nangahas kumilos nang walang armas laban sa militar ni Marcos at di-sinasadyang natuklasan ang kamangha-manghang puwersa nila kapag nagkakaisa. Abot-kaya talaga ng tao na ibagsak ang diktador. Kung hindi nag-alsa ang rebeldeng militar, tuloy-tuloy pa rin tiyak ang boycott campaign ni Cory Aquino na umaarangkada na noon, pati sa Visayas at Mindanao. Naiba lang marahil ang lugar at mga pangunahing aktor. Hindi lang sila iniligtas ng taong-bayan sa militar ni Marcos, inilakad din sila ng taong-bayan kay Cory.
Maaaring nakialam ang mga kapitalistang Amerikano na kasosyo ni Marcos at ng mga crony sa negosyo kung sinuportahan nila ang pag-aalsa nina Enrile at Ramos, ngunit tulad ng pagbulong ng Central Intelligence Agency CIA ng intelligence reports sa mga rebelde noong EDSA, hindi ang mga ito ang nagpakilos sa taong-bayan.
Philippines: Did President Duterte target ABS-CBN news network?
But what has baffled many in the past few months is why Filipinos have not mustered enough People Power to oust President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, despite the latest surveys which show that Filipinos distrust her more than they ever did Marcos or Estrada.

Noong mga araw na iyon, ang presidente parang hari. Hindi lang sinusunod, sinasamba. Hindi lang kinakampihan, kinatatakutan. At pinaka-importante, hinding-hindi siya natatanggal sa poder. Pag may eleksyon, panalo siya. Buong mundo alam iyon. May nakakatuwang cartoon noon sa Amerika. Pinapakita si Marcos katabi ng isang heneral niya. Nakabusangot pareho habang pinapanood ang mga demonstrador na hinuhuli ng mga pulis.
Ganyan ang diktador. Ganyan si Marcos. Ganyan ang pamumunong sinasamba ni Ferdinand Bongbong Jr.
