Year 2007 was a time of unsettling political turmoil yet again in our country.
Emails have been flying at the speed of light to convey opinions about how rotten this government is, how self-serving our politicians are, how hopeless our situation has become and how many so desperately want to leave this pathetic republic.
I can’t blame our countrymen for giving up on our country and searching for greener pastures elsewhere. But even before this recent political crisis, Filipinos have been economic migrants for decades. Admit it, many of those who’ve gone abroad will never earn in a lifetime here in the Philippines what they are getting there for a few year’s work.
