Mr. Robin Padilla then went on to enumerate what are missing in the Philippines today like trains that run on time, streets that are not flooded because they are constructed properly, roads that are free from traffic, presentable airports, cops that catches the criminals, not scalawags in uniform, public servants that do not abuse their position, but serve the public good, politicians who follow the law, a president who does not shrink from responsibility but govern; a government that is not corrupt and citizens who are not in a constant fear are all possible if the element of discipline is present in the country.
Towards the end of his dialogue, Mr. Padilla scored the “Tuwid Na Daan” slogan of the Liberal Party because only a few adheres to the principle.

Oo si Rodrigo Duterte karapat dapat na botohin nyo sa dadating na election kasi ako hindi pa pwede bumuto pero gusto ko sya na ang mamaging presidente ng Pilipinas para mawala na yung mga Abusayaff thingy. (I agree, Rodrigo Duterte deserves our vote in the coming election. Unfortunately, I can’t vote, but I want him to be the next President so that Abu Sayaffs are eliminated.)

Heads up for Mr. Robin “Idol” Padilla. Bilib ako sa dedikasyon mo na makatulong ng libre sa ating susunod na Pangulo “Digong Duterte.” Sana mabigyan ka ng position ni President Digong kahit isa sa sangay ng ating Gobyerno. (I admire you for your dedication to help the cause of the next President “Digong Duterte.” I do hope you will be rewarded with a position in one of the government agencies.)
