Despite my partisan optimism that former President Joseph "Erap" Estrada will regain the seat that he undemocratically lost during the 2001 EDSA 2 power grab by way of a new mandate in an orderly elections come May 10, 2010, what I actually expect is CHEATING. In that Gloria-evil-perpetuated cheating scenario, GIBO will emerge the "victor."
The 'VILLAROYO' talk of a 'secret' administration candidate strikes me as a charade. Just look at Gibo's obstinate "loyalty" to the Illegitimate President. This, amidst incessant reports of presidential contender Manny Villar's (or Noynoy Aquino's?) supposed secret deal with Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, in which scenario Arrobo will be allowed to sit as House Speaker and then possibly alter the constitution to allow her to become Prime Minister.
Gilbert "Gibo" (daw) Teodoro rationalizes his astoundingly unwavering loyalty to his president by professing to don the Filipino value of "utang na loob" (sense/feeling of gratitude or indebtedness). How in heaven's name did the administration party's standard bearer come to regard the "Most Corrupt President in Philippine History" as worthy of his gratitude?

Gibo being tied to a selfish, megalomaniac creature like Gloria by utang na loob makes no sense. Unless the rope of loyalty is more of a dark scheme glued by the collusion of corruption with a vision of the post-May-2010 perpetuation of such a demonic arrangement. Take note of the danger signs abounding--Comelec mock polls showing 50% disenfranchisement; voters' list not being purged properly enough (the Board of Election Inspectors, instead of the computer, made in charge of the operation); Supreme court-upheld Comelec decision to push through with full automation despite non-pilot testing in what should have been two areas each in two provinces, municipalities, and cities; virtual elimination of security measures; PCOS failure; human intervention in the balloting, with the BEI doing checking for authenticity with hand-held UV lamps; and even printing errors that have misaligned the ovals, rendering them unreadable.
More disturbing is the Illegitimate government's apparent inclination to call the elections fraudulent. National Security Council chief Norberto Gonzales recently claimed that cheating for the 2010 polls has begun. Conveniently not naming names, Gonzales said candidates have supposedly started bribing officials of the COMELEC, Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police.
The dangers signs of cheating for Gloria's continued de facto reign are too great to ignore. Gibo's unfaltering loyalty to his illegitimate, most unwanted "President" is equally disturbing. It is not difficult to see that Gloria would not be willing to face charges for her string of gargantuan crimes committed against the nation during her horrific nine-year reign. As insurance against her likely incarceration when she steps down, the Illegitimate simply WONT allow a non-ally to take her place. Nobody should lose sight of that.
An automated Hello Garci this May? If the Filipinos failed to protect their votes in 2004 when elections were manual, how much more now with compromised "automation." All eyes on Gibo now.
