Should Aquino be impeached?

WHEN President Noynoy Aquino declared that his New Year’s resolution would be to ignore his critics, he was not exactly telling the truth. He has been doing that ever since Day One of his presidency. 
 
For over three years and six months, Aquino’s critics have suggested that he should stop his blame game, learn humility and strive for national reconciliation, punish those who have committed grave offenses such as plunder and abuse of public office regardless of political party affiliations, curb the breakdown in law and order, fight criminality, et cetera. To put it succinctly, reenergize democracy, public morality, the economy, the peace process and foreign policy.
 
Alas, Aquino has arrogantly refused to listen and learn from them, and instead basked in the glory of his faithful friends and political allies that he is the greatest president of this nation, which has been ravaged by natural and man-made calamities and scandals. 
 
If he’s truly a spiritual and praying leader, just like his late mother, then he should have listened to the words of Pope Francis that a true leader must truly love all his people not just those around him who have been singing hosannas to him, otherwise he can’t govern well. As his own father Ninoy once said, “without criticism no government can survive, and without dissent no government can effectively govern!”
 
And now, after the first two weeks of this year 2014, the time has come when those same critics of President Aquino, after noting that he cannot govern well, are asking why he has not been impeached and removed from office.
The answer, of course, is that almost all members of Congress, some of them well-known as constitutionalists, have been turning a blind eye to President Aquino’s abuse of our Constitution all these years. 
 
Unlike the President’s critics, they seem unaware that there’s more than enough evidence to support an inquiry investigating whether President Aquino has faithfully kept his oath of office. And if such an inquiry shows that he has failed to uphold the Constitution, then impeachment proceedings should begin. 
 
Aquino’s clear violations of the Constitution and other laws of the land are innumerable, but let’s just mention some of them. He has used public money to bribe (disguised as “incentives”) to carry out his self-assigned mission to wreak vengeance on his perceived political enemies, such as the jailing of his predecessor President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona, he has bypassed legislative and judicial processes, he has enmeshed himself in a web of corruption, such as the scandalous use of pork barrel funds, and he has shown that despite his presidential oath he has no intention of following the letter of the law. 
 
The inquiry should leave no stone unturned, no matter how hard the President and his ever adoring yellow political allies and supporters and media propagandists would fight!

Quote of the Day: “To criticize the President is to do him a service and pay him a compliment. It is a service because it may spur him to do better than he is doing. It is a compliment because it shows a belief that he can do better than he is doing. In short, criticism is an act of patriotism than the familiar rituals of adulation of his friends and allies.” – Anonymous Political Commenter 
 
Thought of the Day: “A sensible political leader always learns more from his opponents than from his fervent supporters. For his supporters will push him to disaster unless his opponents show him where the dangers are. So, if he is wise, he will often pray to be delivered from his friends, because they will ruin him. But, though it hurts, he ought to pray never, never to be left without opponents, for they keep him on the path of reason and good sense.” – Walter Lippmann.

‘The report on illicit trade in the Philippines should be verified by the government. That is the only way of discrediting the report or knowing that it is indeed accurate.’
