"I am convinced that the Filipino electorate will continue to look for alternatives for the inept politicians who continue to ignore the wants and needs of the country. This will mean the arrival of more new political players who, just as Estrada has done, not only heavily rely on their popularity and financial support from segments of the elite, but who also as Estrada did, will lack the knowledge and skills to provide strong, enlightened and independent leadership. And so Philippine presidential elections will become, more than ever a popularity contest in which the average Filipino will continue to be the biggest losers."

Bastian van de Loo | Author of The Failure of the Philippine Presidential System

Rules of Thumb

Do not be fooled by the falsehood that claims that Federalism will mean higher taxes. Really? Compare the unitary Philippines against federalist Malaysia. The Philippines has higher taxes. Federalist Malaysia has lower taxes. Compare the unitary Sweden against federalist Switzerland. Once again, the federalist one - Switzerland - has lower taxes than its federalist counterpart, Sweden. The same with unitary Netherlands when compared against the federalist Germany. Again, federalist Germany has lower taxes than its unitary next door neighbor the Netherlands.
