EDSA 2 has kicked Erap out of Malacanang.. and made GMA the president of our country.. I attended the rally. I was there shouting with all the others that Erap should go. But my question back then was, if he goes who would take his place? I never liked GMA from the start.. there is something bout the way she talks and smiles that gives me the creeps. LOL. So when she swore to presidency.. I didn't cheer.. And now with her in power still after 9 years.. if you attended the EDSA 2 rally and supported the ouster of then President Joseph Estrada.. Did you feel the guilt that I felt when GMA turned out to be just the same character? I guess the only difference is that she have more time to wreck this country than ERAP did.

No, I didn't feel guilty. I am very glad I was a part of it, it was just the right thing to do to express my own views about a certain issue. I don't think, it is fair to be compared GMA to ERAP.

I don't joined the rally that time. I think they did a big mistake when they impeached Erap now GMA is a failure for us. The government had a lot of controversies and corruptions up to now there are still cover up no one are not being punish. The sad reality is everytime their an individual exposed the controversies they are the one who is being punished not the one who commit the crime. For the 9 years GMA don't make our country progressive, the corruptions was not elimate.

I was just an expectator at that time and i felt sad at how people treat a president, to me joseph was a good man, he did not do anythng wrong and simply did not do anything to stop what other people is doing to him. Now, we have a strong woman, she protects everyone in her government no matter what, those who did her good is saved from scrutiny, they were even favored by the supreme court. Look at the system we have this time, they are trying to railroad everything as long as it for their favor. People who took the street as there venue to air their sentiments are suppressed by police beaten with no remorse. Did joseph did that?

Well I would never feel guilty about EDSA 2. It was the first time I ever did participated since I was not able to join the first EDSA since I was in the provinces back then. I only see that we toppled a president that has questionable dealings back then. We have no other choice back then since we have no elections that were talking about so our only legal choice then was GMA. The EDSA was not really GMA only it was something that is not supposed to be in the government. The only thing that this government has is that they have all the legal means against any people's movement. They are now able to counter any attempts by the masses to topple her. It is because they have learned already the hoops and loops of it since they have seen the 2 EDSA's and is able to evade any attempts to topple them.
