This book portrays a slice of Philippine contemporary political history under the leadership of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. It is a critical view of her leadership style and role. Pres. Arroyo has until 2010 to stay in power. However, due to the never-ending corruption, which seems to be spiraling out of control, the author observes that the Filipis could very well see her eventual downfall before 2010. In January 2008, the Asia Pulse survey indicates that Pres. Arroyo is considered even more corrupt than the disgraced dictator Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos. Several international pollsters consider the Philippines as the most corrupt in Asia. The author dedicates this book to the more than 11 million overseas Filipi workers (OFWs) who are remitting nearly US$15 billion annually to their families they left behind. This yearly remittance sustains the Philippine ecomy, which is wracked by widespread corruption. These OFWs, who are working in many parts of the world are considered modern heroes of the Philippines.
