Once in power, representatives fail to represent their voters.
The members of the House of the Representa-thieves pushing for the convening of a constituent assembly do not really represent the masses who elected them. After election and induction to office, these congressmen simply do as they please. They do not heed the voice of their constituent whom they swore to represent.
Congress, aside from not having been elected for the purpose of revising the Constitution, consists of people who currently hold political power and are not likely to be inclined to make changes that can diminish their power.
As citizen of this nation, we have the power to boot them out.

Yes, today's issue of the PDI have those words.

Certainly, it is not right that elected representatives become representathieves once they hold office. But what can be done when the citizens themselves love thieves? In a democracy, the people chose their leaders. The kind of leaders that the country has simply reflect the kind of people it has. Corrupt citizens produce corrupt leaders.

Overheard from a bunch of shooters while waiting for their turn to shoot a stage:

Shooter 1: Nag plead si Gen Carlos Garcia ng guilty sa kasong bribery at money laundering at ngayon e naka pag bail pa sya.
Shooter 2: Ganon na lang ba yon? Di ba dapat yong non-bailable na plunder ang kaso nya?
Shooter 3: Hindi lang plunder ang kaso nya.
Shooter 1: Di ba't nagkamal sya ng yaman at kasabwat yong buong pamilya nya? Mas mabigat na kaso ang dapat ipataw sa kanya.
Shooter 2: Anong kaso yon?
Shooter 3: Impersonating a congressman.
