Dear Chief Justice Corona,
So now you are judged guilty…
If indeed your conscience is clear as you claim it to be, your Calvary has only just begun. The road to vindication is a long, long one.
The hypocrites are rejoicing but let them be. Their fraudulence will be bared in time for all to see. But only if indeed you are hiding nothing shady.
The last thing you should do is appeal your case to your peers at the Supreme Court. Don’t. It would only make you appear pathetic, like a drowning man who deserves to drown hopelessly clinging on the last straws. Your vindication is not there.
And don’t withdraw your blanket waiver as in fact you should wave it like a flag for all to see. It is now your best weapon to clear your name—if indeed you are clean as you claim to be.
The first thing you should do is dare the Ombudsman and the rest of all government agencies involved in anti-corruption drive to conduct starting immediately, armed with the blanket waiver you have issued, a full-dress investigation of all your assets and properties to determine once and for all if any of these are tainted with any disreputable origins at all— if indeed you are as clean as you claim to be.
The second is issue the most important challenge of all, for the President himself, the torchbearer of Daang Matuwid, the prime mover of your ouster, to sign a blanket waiver as you yourself have done to manifest in symbolic and in no uncertain terms that his crusade is guided by principle and not by ill motives cloaked in principle. The other is for the President to direct all government employees, starting with his own Cabinet, to issue the same with an accompanying directive that he who refuses to do so, is deemed voluntarily resigned.
The third is to repeat the call to all prosecutors and the signers of impeachment, including now those who have judged him guilty to follow suit, else, they should all relinquish their own positions in government.
The next is to challenge all those so-called good government advocates, civil society groups, media personalities, and everyone who joined the call for your impeachment and who worked tirelessly to assist in having you ousted from your position to join the call for all government officials to take up the challenge of signing a waiver to manifest that their actions were truly motivated by genuine desire to effect social change and not by other dubious motivations
And lastly, to lead a citizen’s signature campaign, a Sign Your Waiver Movement, to finally begin a genuine cleansing of ourselves of corruption, including of these dregs called Hypocrites.
The road to redemption is steep and rocky. But it is your duty to yourself and the people you love and to all those who care about justice that you redeem yourself— if indeed you are clean as you claim to be.
But as you must have noticed, these are predicated with the phrase “if indeed you are clean as you claim to be”.
Else, well, pack your things and leave as fast as you can. Find a place where you could hang yourself in shame.
Better yet, take a hike to the highest peak and jump to your own death. At least, do the right thing to save your family name.
