Gibo's Post-Election Message

"I did not fight for a political position for myself but for an idea. Winning or losing is secondary. We fight for an idea—an idea of competence. Basic education reform, college graduate opportunities for every family, food security, genuine sustainable agrarian reform, localized peace processes, strong foreign relations, and several others."

MAY 11, 2010 - "Ako’y nanalig na sana tayo'y magkaroon ng gobyerno na magiging hustisya ang batayan hindi benggansa, na makapag-introduce ng basic education reforms, makapag-introduce ng tunay at sustainable na reporma sa lupa para sa food security natin at makaahon sa sitwasyon ang ating magsasaka. Magkaroon ng tunay at malalim na reporma sa sistema ng pulitika sa bansa to include constitutional reforms. Na magkarooon ang gobyerno ng pagkakaisa instead na pagkakawalay-walay. Upang sa ganun, magamit natin ang pagkakataon na ito na makaahon imbes na magwatak-watak.

Ako’y nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng naniwala sa akin, ang aking minamahal at ginigiliw na mga kapartido at ako'y bumabati sa aking mga kapartido na nanalo. At sana ipagpatuloy natin ang paglaban para sa iisang Better Philiippnes. Sa Green Team at sa lahat ng volunteers, lalung-lalo na yung mga hindi ako kakilala pero naniwala sa akin, ang pasalamat ko ay lubos-lubos at sana sa darating na panahon, magkita tayong muli para ako ay personal na magpasalamat.

At sa huli, kay Nikki, kay Jaime at sa lahat ng kapamilya ko para sa pagmamahal, sa pagtitiwala, sa pakikibaka para sa iisang causa.

Itong laban na ‘to, hindi laban upang manalo si Gibo o ang aking kapartido. Sadya naming inilunsad ang isang kampanya na nangingibabaw ang puri at dangal at respeto sa ating mga kababayan, kung saan inuna natin ang taumbayan. At upang maisulong ang isang ideya na sobra na ang kabulukan ng sistema, lalung-lalo na sa pulitika nitong bansa na ito. Kaya namin pinanindigan ang prinsipyo na iyon upang tunay na magbago ang ating lipunan dahil sobra na tayong naiiwanan.

Ngayon na nagdesisyon ang ating mga kababayan, dapat magkaisa tayo upang isulong ang mga tamang prinsipyo na ating inilaban. At ako’y nananalig na ang Pilipino ay hindi magpapaiwan. At ako’y nananalig nakapagtanim tayo ng mangandang halimbawa at taas-noo tayong makakapagharap sa kahit kaninuman dahil tayo ay gumawa ng tama, kapuri-puri at may karangalan. Maraming salamat.”

"Believe" - The Gibo Fan Video Everyone Should See

This fan video was made by a pro, Boom Dayupay of Kulay, who has never met Gibo but was converted.

Boom's message:
"This song is for 3 men I respect and admire in the Philippines.
1) Governor Lray Villafuerte who is the most dynamic governor that turned CamSur into the #1 Tourist Destination spot and put CamSur in the WORLD MAP!!!
2) Joey Concepcion of GoNegosyo who's Entrepreneurial mindset will drive this Nation away from poverty
and... 3) Gibo Teodoro, unlike Gov and Joey who I've had the pleasure of working with, I've never met Gibo but my sister Lani Dayupay Savellano is one of your many devoted supporters. She turned my dad's house GREEN. All I see is T-shirts and Bags, ballers, hats! OMG! but I've never seen my sister have such undying support! Anyways, she kept bugging and pleading me for this song but I'm really particular about who I support. But After seeing over 135,000 Gibo supporters in a stadium and you did it with Supporters and NOT Superstars and "hakot"! That was really cool! So I dedicate this song to you and to your supporters and of course my Ate Lani. May God Bless You and The Philippines.


Final results are out, May 8, 2010. Gibo won by a landslide! This survey was sponsored by the Philippine Star and Smart Telecoms.

Gibo's Miting de Avance Draws Largest Crowd

Gibo's Miting de Avance at the Rizal Stadium on May 7, 2010 drew a crowd of 100,000 to 135,000, according to reports of ABS-CBN, GMA 7, Philippine Daily Inquirer, and Philippine Star.  A former administrator of the Rizal Sports Complex said the last time the track oval was filled with spectators was during the Far-Eastern Games between Japan and China in 1930.  The mammoth crowd of Greenies came even without any big artista performances like the other candidates. People went to see the CANDIDATE, not his celebrity relatives or celebrity endorsers.  The celebs who went were content to sit in the audience and listen to Gibo.

Cory Loyalist Rafael "Raffy" Alunan III Chooses Gibo

Rafael "Raffy" Alunan III served as Secretary of Tourism during the term of Cory Aquino. He became Secretary of Interior and Local Government during the term of Fidel Ramos.

The well-regarded Mr. Alunan, who has long supported the Aquinos, explains on Facebook why he will be voting green for President on May 10, 2010.

by Rafael Alunan III

The presidential candidate I will vote for:
•articulates a vision, a sense of mission and a sensible action agenda;
•has a good grasp of complex issues, and explains them simply and clearly;
•maintains equanimity despite the rigors of the campaign and the adversities of political battle;
•avoids personality politics; stays focused on the issues;
•avoids negative campaigning to give the voters the opportunity to understand his platform and how he intends to govern and serve;
•remains cool under fire, takes tough stands, makes hard decisions, sticks to his convictions especially in the most difficult circumstances;
•is a good listener and integrator of good ideas;
•is a proven negotiator and will be able to hold his own in the competitive arena of geopolitics and international relations;
•is genuinely presidential, a natural leader;
•is comfortable with outliers.

My choice for president respects institutions and works through the system. He is a reformer; dedicated public servant; circumspect politician; served in two branches of government; respects judicial processes; has demonstrated moral courage within his area of responsibility. He remains focused on serving higher interests, namely, national interests. He has a keen sense of nationhood that is crucial for anyone aspiring for the presidency.

My presidential candidate is an underdog even in his own party, stabbed in the front, back and sides by treacherous party mates and principals who have come to realize that he is his own man and cannot be controlled to do their bidding, meaning, protect them for their past wrongdoings once he's president. This should dispel presumptions or fears of coddling. They’ve called for his resignation and endorsed a rival party’s candidate. He is a non- traditional politician that prefers the high to the low road.

He has received basic, higher and postgraduate education from schools that I identify with; and comes from a decent family. His father, famously, could not be swayed to do the bidding of the dictator’s wife, and kept faith with the principle that public office is a public trust. That reflects strength of character based on strong ethics-based convictions.

I say this with a healthy respect for all the other candidates, black propaganda aside, some of who are well known to me. They too could or would be a breath of fresh air and sunlight in a room darkened and smelly from accumulated filth like, for example, Noynoy, Eddie, Nicky, Dick and possibly even a transformed Erap. Their past, fact or fiction, is not as important as to what they are today and what they could be tomorrow. However, the candidate of my choice after months of keen observation stands a head taller than the rest.

So, I have finally reached a decision. Win or lose, it will not be a wasted vote. Mine will be an informed vote on May 10. I choose Gilbert Teodoro for President.

". . . hindi namamana. Tapos na ang ating mga bulag na paniniwala sa mga himala. Tapos na ang ating kamangmangan. Higit sa lahat, hindi na ako makakapayag sa isang bayang minamangmang ang kanyang mga mamamayan. Ikalawa, hindi sapat na alam mo ang mga problema. Kailangan magbigay ka ng mga solusyon. Madaling dumakdak at dumakdak, at isa-isahin ang lahat ng problema, at mangako nang mangako. Ang tanong ko sa kanila, sige nga, papaano? At sa lahat ng mga umaasam na maging presidente ng ating bayan, nabatid ko na iilan lang ang mayroong mga plataporma. At sa ilan sa kanila, ang pinaka-kapanipaniwala ay kay Gibo."

Mahal ko ang Pilipinas
Dito naka-ugat ang buo kong pagkatao
Kaluluwa at dugo
Isip at puso
Dito malaya ako
Malayang mamuhay ng marangal
Malayang ipaglaban ang mga karapatan ko
Mahalaga ang paniwala ko
Importante ang boses ko
Kaya’t ibibigay ko lang
Ang boto ko
Sa may integridad at prinsipyo
Sa may galing at talino
Ang may tunay na plano
At hindi lang puro pangako
Hindi ako magpapasilaw sa kasikatan
Hindi magpapadikta sa kahit na sino
Gagawin lang ang tama at nararapat
Para maging mas dakila pa ang Pilipinas kong mahal
At ngayong may pagkakataong magbago muli
Magsisikap akong maging mas mabuting Pilipino
Mas may malasakit sa kapwa
Ito ang pangako ko
Sa aking mga magulang at sa aking kapwa Pilipino
Sa aking mga anak
Sa aking mga mahal sa buhay
Naniniwala akong posibleng makamit ang mabilis na pagunlad
Sa ngalan ng Panginoon
Sa pagkakaisa
At pagsama-sama
Ako ay Pilipino
Mahal ko ang bayan ko.
