The controversial speech of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte could be the most decisive point in the 2016 Presidential election. If you compare it to the battles in World War 2, it could be the battle of Leyte after Gen. Douglas MacArthur fulfilled his promise to the Filipino people.
If Duterte emerges unscathed after the infamous speech, his chances of winning the election is almost certain, based on the latest SWS survey conducted before the Pope-cursing speech. And given he is allowed by the Comelec to act as a substitute candidate of Martin Dino.
In the meantime, the Duterte supporters and the rival camps are waiting in great anticipation before the next survey is out. By then, the political landscape could either swing to Duterte’s rivals if the controversial speech has made an irreparable damage to the Mayors’ candidacy or not.
We already knew how Duterte’s rivals and critics took advantage of the situation by leveraging his inadvertent use of foul language in the hope of hurting Duterte’s candidacy in the 2016 Presidential election.
As an offshoot of the black propaganda from Mayor Duterte’s political rivals, a movement called #MyDuterteStory was born to spread the good traits of the Mayor. Not too many people know, the Mayor hates to brag about his charitable works for Davaoenos and non-Davaoenos alike.
This brings me to share one of the stories circulating in the social media that speaks about the soft-hearted Mayor who is willing to help anyone WITHOUT ASKING whether you are a registered voter of Davao City or not.
Please take the time to read the story below and SHARE it to your wall and in as many Facebook groups as possible to convince the undecided voters that Duterte is the kind of leader our country needs in the coming years.
I can’t help but also share my personal experience.
My daughter was born with congenital hydrocephalus. She was diagnosed when I was in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy whilst having my board exam review in Manila.
All along I knew that I will deliver a baby with congenital anomaly.
But despite of that, I’m still determined and hopeful that everything will be alright.
The day came when I gave birth to a baby girl. My 1st question is how her head looks like? And everyone seemed to try to give us comforting words because the painful truth is very obvious.
The moment I hold her I then realized nothing compares the joy of being a mum and that very moment I forgot what others seen as obvious (tweety bird head) what I’ve seen is a beautiful fragile little creature fighting for her life.
After 2 weeks in the NICU the Neurosurgeon advised us for AV shunt operation where they will implant a device inside my daughters head to drain the water out and avoid further head enlargement; she will carry this device for the rest of her life.
Along with the complexity of the procedure, is the fear with such limited time where to find the money for the operation.
As I had my daughter delivered and confined in one of the private hospitals in Davao City we decided to transfer to the Government hospital because we cannot afford the very high surgeons fee and the escalating hospital bills.
The day we arrived in Davao Medical Center the Nuero ward was packed and we were told that we have to wait for the schedule of the operation. Each passing day we hope that my daughters name will be on the board list for the next day’s schedule. And yes, after a week of waiting the operation was a success.
Now the next hurdle we need to face is the hospital bill.
We went to the office of MAYOR DUTERTE and asked for help and he did not hesitate to extend his help. One of his staff gave us a note address to the billing section of the hospital… That time I recalled, we only paid P3,000 in DMC as compared to the P400, 000 tentative cost if we had it in the private hospital.
We were very happy and It was such a huge relief that finally I can bring my daughter home with the assistance of our beloved Mayor.
MAYOR DUTERTE is the only reason why I register to vote for the incoming election. No human being is perfect, but I strongly believe he is the only candidate who can make a difference in this country.
I would like to say Thank you to the Neuro medical team of Davao Medical Center for saving my daughter’s life. She is now 14yrs old living normal and happy life
