Faint Vox

Even before the congress killed the impeachment process, rallies are already staged to oust President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. And despite the call from the oppossition and the "leftist" to join the rally, they were not able to gather enough number to stage another people power. What they created is "people palpak" - wasting time and money on an activity that results to nothing but public disturbance.

The famous latin proverb says "Vox populi vox Dei" refers to the idea that the king or the government ought to pay attention to the voice of the people. But the noise created by the "oust Gloria" rally is too faint to be heard even by the duwendes. Hence it can't be called the voice of the "voice of the people". Maybe the murmur of the the "namamaos" people.

The shouts at these rallies can't be called the voice of God either. Why? First, it is led by the leftist who are followers of a philosopher that don't believe in God. Second, it is supported by the opposition who are from form being holy. And lastly it is not supported by the Church.

The rallies we have now is bound to fail. It does not produce the voice of the people and will not be the voice of God. What we have is just a faint vox.
