    I do not belong to the elite you have mentioned but I can only say from experience that that whether it is Lacson or Roco or Poe jr., irrespective of those who will vote them, the winner will just take care on keeping the status quo and sustaining it. I am sure no improvement will happen for the poor majority, and the classes benefitting from the status quo will have no damage with respect to their privileges and wealth and that is regardless whether the Phil democracy will elect any one of the potential candidates incl. the incumbent. The real existing democracy that is being practiced have never brought until now anything positive for the normal people – and that is regardless whether they are educated or not.
