Democratic fiscalization and genuine Opposition; role of Roxas, Robredo.

If both Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo lose, it is advisable that they run for the Senate in 2019 to insure that an anti-Duterte Government, LP-led Opposition is sustained.

A republic without a credible, strong and intelligent Opposition is a weak democracy.

Fiscalization is the essence of democratic governance and accountability.

A Shadow Government must be maintained by the Opposition at all times to fiscalize the acts and decisions of the Duterte Establishment.

Without a genuine and free Opposition, our society would be prone to abuse by an assertive Executive and a subservient Majority in the Legislative.

The absence of a real Opposition in Government would expose the people to the dangers of political regimentation, mass indoctrination, and the ultimate death of the Bill of Rights.
