A FEW GOOD MEN

few-610x366

 

To quote Charles Dickens:

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way…”

These are times of both darkness and opportunity.  The RH bill has been passed and is now called RA 10354, and with it loom other anti-life bills like the divorce bill and the same sex marriage bill. These and other immoral and unjust legislation are waiting passage by people who want to promote the culture of death in our county. We are facing very grave threats to the future of our society and our family.

However, God has not forgotten His people. He sends them people who can lead them to a better country, a country that is both prosperous and God-fearing. These men, a few good men among many who are wicked and corrupt, are men of sound principle and good character  They will serve us well in the senate, if voted.

1.  JC delos Reyes

Born February 14, 1970, he studied in Ateneo de Manila for his elementary education, and graduated in De la Salle for high school. He finished his B.A. in Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio. In 1999 he finished his post-graduate studies in Public Administration from the University of the Philippines and has a law degree from Saint Louis University, Baguio City. In 1995, he ran and was elected City Councilor of Olongapo. During his term, he focused on the poor, the youth and cooperatives.

In 1996, JC met Nandy Pacheco in the National Renewal Movement and in late 2003, Norman Cabrera for Central Luzon, JC de los Reyes for Northern Luzon and Fr. Leonardo Polinar for the Visayas and Mindanao gathered the needed signatures for the accreditation of Alliance for the Common Good or Ang Kapatiran Party. It was finally accredited by COMELEC on 8 May 2004 or 2 days before the 10 May 2004 elections. After a decade absent from local politics, JC ran under Kapatiran party in the 2007 elections and, among the party’s 30 local and national candidates, he was Kapatiran’s lone winner.

He campaigned against illegal drugs, rampant violations of worker’s rights at Hanjin and was outspoken against illegal fish cages in Olongapo. More recently, he also led protests against the proposed coal power plant and criticized government’s plan to open more casinos in Subic. He filed numerous cases before the Ombudsman against high ranking government officials where he himself was complainant.

In the 2010 national elections, he was the youngest presidential candidate who led the charge for new politics, together with a vice-president, 8 senatorial and 50 local candidates. Though they lost the election, they won the awareness of the people on issues such as the RH bill, the political dynasties issue, the FOI and the need for platform and principles based politics.

2010 to present – Media and Legislative liaison officer of Pro-Life Philippines

 

Ang Pro Life Partylist

In order to gain more seats for pro-lifers in congress, Pro-life Philippines endorses the Ang Prolife Partylist. The partylist will focus on promoting pro-life legislation especially geared towards the families of OFWs.

The representatives of Ang Prolife are:

1. Atty. James Imbong

2. Atty. Jemy Gatdula

3. Lorna Melegrito

4. Leny Manalang

5. Ed Tirona

We urge all our voters to go vote and actively campaign for these gentlemen for senator and Ang Prolife for partylist. These men and women have the courage to step up and serve the nation; what they lack is the campaign resources and machinery in order to reach out to the people whose votes we need. For this reason, we ask that we all be volunteers for a common cause from this moment forward: to see these brave men and women elected into office and to truly represent the people, to be the voice and the protector of those who cannot fight for themselves.

 

Other Candidates

Other Candidates whom Pro-Life Philippines endorses are: Maria Milagros “Mitos” Magsaysay, Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III,  Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito, Antonio Trillanes IV, Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan II.

Pro-Life Philippines decided to endorse these 5 candidates as they were key figures who offered great assistance to the pro-life side in our battle against the RH law. Pro-Life Philippines endorses them because of their dedication and commitment towards real poverty alleviation through education and job creation.

    Thank you for this information. It is an answer to my prayer. As we meet and see those working for candidates energetically go from house to house, we are challenged not only to cast our vote for the “few good men (and women)” who champion life and our Catholic values but also to actively go out convincing others to cast their votes for life and God! 🙂

  5. Magna says:

    I think I will vote for these three and Mitos Magsaysay only… I don’t know about the others… And for party list, I will vote only for Ang prolife. God have mercy on our country and our people! How can we have been so stupid as to elect a president such as we have now!
