With the current situation, would you have prefered the Philippines as a sovereign state or another nation's territory?

the US never wanted us to be a state.. only a colony. they had over 40 years of control over us to do that yet they didn't. probably because 82 million Filipino-turned-Americans can actually place as American President a Filipino! embarassedlaugh.gif anyway, history tells us already that they never wanted us to be part of the Union as a 51st state.

people like pamatong are very ignorant, our ancestors fought hard for centuries so that ther would a free philippines. i think the philippines today is a shadow of the us, i'm not saying that it is controlled directly by the us, but it is directly influenced by many of it's aspects. economically and militarily. even culturally. so thought the philippines is free, the fact that globalization is real, the philippines is just affected by america and the west.

i think Filipinos need to stop thinking LAZY and work to solve their own problems and get themselves out of their unfortunate circumstances... icon_rolleyes.gif

America doesnt need to hold your hand. and is not going to hold your hand. Filipinos need to stop being lazy. Americans will not ever be open to filipinos bringing their problems to our people by becoming a state. It will never happen.

maybe we need a stronger leader that's all. and maybe we need to get rid of the corrupt politicians and fix the whole government. I remember my dad telling me that during Marcos' time, the PI was doing pretty good compared to now.

yeah theres lazy americans, but we aren't asking to be admited to another country because we are too lazy to work to better ourselves! icon_rolleyes.gif

Americans will never accept Filipinos as a state... you think its easy just that you can become a state and everything will be easy... no you will have americans who will not accept you, you will also lose your land, it is not belonging to you but the united states governement...... they can do whatever they want with it. icon_rolleyes.gif
