Freedom of Choice in The Philippines

The interesting thing in The Philippines is how its leaders always talk about Freedom of Choice. Important things? Not a lot of choices. Unimportant things? Tons of choices. You know what your Freedom of Choice is in The Philippines? Paper or Plastic, Cash or Charge, Aisle or Window, Smoking or Non-Smoking, ABS-CBN or GMA (our local channels which are currently engaged in a network war that seems to go on forever).

Everything else in kinda laid out for you. You don’t get to do what you want. Instead, you get to do what they really want.
