Ano ba ang Federalismo? (What is Federalism?)


Among all of the presidential candidates, there is one candidate that stands out Duterte, due to his iron fist style of leadership. Although not all people would agree with him and whether you are for Duterte or against him, most of us don’t know what he stands for. So what does he stands for, exactly? Duterte have been visiting places around the country promoting Federalism. What is Federalism? Right now our form of Government is a Unitary form of Government. This means that power and authority is mostly vested in one centralised government. One aspect for this is that income and funds made by each region would all go to the centralised government and from there, budget is distributed back to each regions basing on the amount the government has set. In Federalism, power will be divided between the National Federal Government and the local State Government. the Philippines would be divided into different states. For example in the proposed Federal Structure by Senator Nene Pimentel, Northern Luzon would be one state and Central Luzon would be another state and so on and so forth. Each state would retain 80% of their income and funds, and only 20% of that would go to the Federal National Government. And out from 80% of each state, 30% of that would go to the Local State Government and 70% would go to the Provinces, Cities, Municipalities, and Barangays. Each State would also have their own set of senators and representatives. Legislative powers is also shared between the National Federal Government and the Local State Government. So in basic terms the Federal Government is responsible for the military and protection for the nation and the Local state government would be responsible for their respective states, where each Local government has more controls over the projects, budgets and laws. The Philippines has 7,107 islands each with diverse tribes and cultures and obviously each region has their own specific needs. In cases of emergency we have repeatedly failed to respond quickly since the facilities, technology and funding is mainly focused on where the centralised government is located The Unitary form of Government has failed us again and again. By shifting from a unitary form of Government to a Federal type of Government Duterte believes we can achieve economic reforms, equal justice, progress to each state decongest metro manila as some would have put it So what would this shift means for us? Right now most of the development are in the metro manila with federalism this would be shared across the nation Malacanang and the Supreme Court Complex is located in Manila, the upper house is located in Pasay, and the lower house is located in Quezon City, all of which is in Luzon. With Federalism, all of these offices would be shared across the country. Although each form of Government has their own pros and cons Duterte believes Federalism would be a good fit for our country given our geographical and cultural situations. As a voter we encourage everyone, to be informed, and be educated on matters of the Country and use your votes wisely Learn each Candidates platform of Government and choose which you think would be the best fit of our Country right now.

    Mula sa lengwahe, pananamit, at sa pagsulat natin ay talagang nagbago na dahil masyado nating binibigyan ng atensyon ang ibang bansa kaya yung sarili nating bansa ay hini natin nabibigyan ng atensyon kaya onti-onti na itong nawawala…

    Kapag nangyari ang Federalism sa Pilipinas sobrang palalakasin nito ang Political clan / Dynasty. Ung mga pamilyang naghahari sa bawat lugar lalong palalakasin ng Federalism kapag sila sila lang at walang mas mataas na kapangyarihan na pwedeng komontra sa kanila parang ibinigay mo na ang langit sa mga iyan. Kahit anong gawin nila pwede na dahil sa lakas ng kapangyarihan nila at kayamanan. Kahit magnakaw ng magnakaw ang mga iyan sa kaban ng bayan magtatakipan na lang iyan dahil sila sila lang iyan. Lahat ng kumontra siguradong may kalalagyan. Kaya hindi ako pabor dito. Kahit anong form of Government ang gawin sa Pilipinas kung mga kurap at pamipamilya ang uupo kahit Federalism or Unitary form of Government wala rin mangyayari. Hindi rin uunlad ang Pilipinas lalo na sa Federalismo. NO federalism dahil mas papabor ito sa mga Pulitikong kurap marami na tayo niyan hwag nang dagdagan pa.

    Duterte's system is Populism/Peronism with a dash of Fascism. If you want this, you people out there will have to pay this administration's radical transformation, which also includes loans from China, which sets the finances of each of your families back for a couple generations.

    Sana maumpisahan na yan, , para umasinso narin at independent ang mga probensya, ,mas may alam yung sarili nyang senador ang mag represent sa sariling bayan, , ,alam nya kung anong gawin ,hindi yung walang solusyon ang taga maynila ang mag disisyon sa di nila alam na problema, ,

    Plainly Simple Studios I hope you make similar to this animation for the INFLATION situation in Philippines. As it seems lots of people are panicking and calling for people power LOL infact, this inflation have happened in the past lots of times, Marcos, to Aquino. The all time high was even **"9"**. Also, if you google it, almost all country suffered inflation lately.

    Gusti kunang makita o mapanuod kung ano ngaba ang mababago gamit ng Federalism. Pero hindi parin ito makakamit ang kaginhawaan o pagbabago kung ang politikong nakaupo ay corrupt parin, sablay parin🤐😭

    Remember that Mindanao is the Philippine's main food powerplant so if this type of government will be established, the Mindanao will rise and Luzonians will recognize us

    Magiging magulo yan kapag ginawa nila estado ang mga prone terrorist places sa mindanao. Kasi diba sabi sa video magkakaroon daw ng mga senadoo o iba't ibang position doon sa loob ng estado. Kaya magkakaroon kapagnyarihan ang mga lider doon at baka sila magrebelde tungo sa centralise government

    im in for Federalism form of govt as long as the FOI, anti-dynasty bill are ratified and all incumbents from the President up to the Barangay Captain will be out and can only apply again for a govt position after 10 years. Previous incumbents (from the old system of govt) including their relatives up to the 3rd degree can only apply for a govt position after 10 years too. (wishful thinking)

    Am i the only one that really wants federalism here in the philippines? tiga manila nga ako pero gusto ko ring umasenso ung ibang rehiyon sa bansa eh hindi lang ung metro manila. I want my province to increase their prosperity and to thrive. Well if majority of the filipinos doesn't want it, i respect that. But i'm still one of those who wants federalism here in the philippine 😀

    Sa dami dami ng Federalismong isinusulong dito hindi ka nakakasiguro kung anung klase ang meron dyan.

    Wala halos laman at open na open sa katarantaduhan.

    Ang federalisasyon ng America at ng Europa e PAGKAKAISA ng IBAT IBANG BANSA.

    Ibat ibang soberanya na PINAG ISA upang MAS MALAKAS sila.

    NGAYON, dito sa IISANG bansa natin,

    parang BINA BASAG nyo ang SOBERANYA ng Nag iisang bansang ito

    Para maging mas MALILIIT na ESTADO at MAHIHINA.

    Upang madaling PULUTANIN ng mga mananakop isa isa tulad NG CHINA.

    Ang lahat ng federalismong itinutulak dito ay PEKE!

    FEUDALISMO talaga ang mga yan,

    kaya ingat kayo sa PANG UUTO ng mga HUDAS ng nasa likod ng mga yan.

    whatever is good in federalism can be legislated without changing the form of government. in philippine context, federalism is divisive to the nation that will only benefit the ruling clique in a divide and rule strategy over the filipino nation. look at the approved BOL as a federal state, it already has its own flag and income from the patrimony of the people of the philippines are not equitably shared to the rest of filipinos. the answer to our ills are better governance and the eternal emphasis that we are ONE COUNTRY AND ONE PEOPLE. we should correctly identify the origin of our problems and correct them as a nation and it begins with our educational system and the control of mass media, education has dumbed us and mass media has destroyed our values in its program of cultural marxism especially the entertainment industry. it is not the form of government that must change, it is us the people. napaka ambisyosong tanga naman natin, kahit basura lalo na sa maynila ay hindi nga masolusyunan dahil sa pag uugali natin, it is not the form of government that has to change but it is us from within to have a strong country and people, ONE.

    ang negatibo na puwedeng mangyari kapag napa batas ito ay ang pag kawatak watak na posibleng mangyari sa ibang rehiyon, ang hindi pag unlad at kulang na budget nito, ang mga krimen tulad na pag sasabatas ng death penalty sa ibang rehiyon, ang pag iiba iba ng mga batas na puwedeng ma confuse kapag bumisita ka dito. sa aking pananaw hindi pa , masyadong handa ang pilipinas sa kung ano ang kahihinatnan neto dahil una kapag nasa ibatas ito iikot ang dynasty sa isang rehiyon na halos pamunuan na ng kanilang pamilya .. PINOY maging isang mapanalig at dapat my kakayahan kayong tukuyin ang posbilidad na kung ano ang malamim na mangyayri kapag ito ay naipasa .. hindi pa ito napaapnahon ngaun, sapagkat pinoy lang din ang mag aangat sa kanilang sarili … corrupt kase talaga ang bansang pilipinas at nakakalungkot na ung iba pa dto na bakit daw ang america kaya malamang kase 17century pa nila naipatupad to. anyway ang india kung mapapansin nyo balak din nilang buwagin ang kanilang fedaralismo dahil nga sa pag kakawatak watak ng mga tao sa iisang bansa .

    Sana mas dumami pa ang mga gantong uri ng videos kung saan maeeducate ang mga Pinoy kung ano ang mga sistemang nakapaloob sa Pilipinas.. This video should be spread amongst Pinoy all over the globe. 🙂

  • Darth Sidious

    Pabor ako sa Federalismo dahil ang ating bansa ay maraming iba't ibang uri ng pananampalataya,kultura atbp. Kung isusulong ang charter change hindi ito magiging parliamentary kundi presidential federal. Sa pamamagitan nito magkakaroon ng sariling control sa budget gumawa at magpatupad ng batas. Sa gayon luluwag ang kamaynilaan dahil. Mas rarami ang oppurtunidad sa mga probinsya. Kaya pabor ako sa Federalismo.

  • Harold Soriano

    Maganda ang federalism pero wag sana madaliin to. Kasi di kakayanin ng budget ng bansa mag back to 0 tayo. Kakailangain ng sapat na pondo. Sana alam din ng ibang tao lalo na Yung supporters ni Pres. Ang federalism na hinihimok ng ating pangulo

  • Everyone is an Angel

    Pwede rin. Gumanda ang America sa Federalism nila. Medyo mas maayos ang Gobyerno sa Federalismo dahil hindi lahat mapupunta sa Malacañang ang pera at kapangyarihan. Pero sana mawala na ang corruption😂😂😂
