President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo likens charter change as a train that
would take the nation to progress, and that those who support get a
Paradise. But given her blueprint for charter change -- no elections in
2007, the removal of the few nationalist provisions protecting the
economy from the rampages of imperialist globalization, and the drastic
watering-down of the provisions safeguarding civil liberties and other
human rights -- Arroyo's cha-cha train is definitely not a train bound
for Paradise but a one-way ticket to Hell.
Salungguhit literally means to
underline; figuratively, to
underscore or highlight.
