Desperately seeking true leaders

This government is characterized more by what is absent than what is obvious.
The obvious is that it is a gang of greedy thieves who thought wearing yellow would deodorize their evil schemes.
But what is absent is capacity for intellectual and moral leadership.
We have a President with a known disdain for matters intellectual. Hence, his ability to confront problems with knowledge and acuity of vision is seriously impaired.
Our legislature isn’t much different.
There are bright minds among our Senators and Congressmen, but the corrupt way that this Administration does business has reduced them to obedient lapdogs whose minds have warped.

No wonder our nation is wallowing in a quagmire. 

The people at the helm of the ship don’t look at a moral compass for guidance. Their maps are filled with bank account numbers disguised as grid coordinates. For them, stealing is okay when done in good faith.
Our dire straits make us long for those days when only intellectual giants gained entry to the highest positions of the land.
We long for Recto, Tanada, Diokno, Salonga and Ganzon in the halls of our Congress to make us feel secure our fate and destiny are placed in the hands of genuine leaders.
It’s time for men and women possessed with great minds and moral uprightness to lead this country
