Is there hope i n the Philippines? Why?

There is still hope in the Philippines. Contrary to popular belief, we have a lot of bright boys and girls here. Take, for example, the case of Agapito Flores, the inventor of fluorescent lamp, which is much better in lighting quality and more efficient and economical than the incandescent lamp of Thomas Edison. I also saw in TV some years ago the "water car" invented by another Filipino. I also witness from time to time the brilliance of Miriam Defensor Santiago when she's interpreting the constitution or when talking about her idea of good governance. Unfortunately, many of their kind are not interested in politics and are only at the mercy of mediocre, self-serving, gluttonous, good-for-nothing politicians.
