What does the future hold for the next generation in the Philippines?

Some say living in the US is a great opportunity because it is the land of milk and honey. What about those who are living in the Philippines? It is the land of poverty? Indeed, many people are suffering from poverty in the Philippines. Sometimes I think what will the future be for the next generation of Filipino kids especially with the state of the current Philippine Government? Only those on the top benefit from the money that has been collected from the Public. What about those poor people who are living in the rural areas? Will they get the some benefit from public monies?

A few years from now what do you think will happens the Philippines? The poor will become poorer and the rich will become richer? With the high prices of basic commodities and the never ending gas high prices which continue to increase, I really don't know what the future will hold for my nieces and nephews. Those were the question in mind that nobody knows. Anyway, I came across to this very interesting Article.

My Babe Dako says that the problem is all the corruption at every level of Government. With a corrupt government no one obeys the law and in the end the poor and powerless lose out. Bribes and kick backs are a way of life in the Philippines but in the US those actions will get you thrown in jail. I pray that someday we will find a way to root out the corruption and rid our country of the shackles of poverty.
