That's wrong! Only bonafide Filipino citizens should be allowed to vote. There are tax exempted incomes and there should be Welfare programs to help the constituents return as taxpayers again with a taxable income instead of tax exempted incomes. The last time I went filing for that(ITR), the tax exempted incomes are those whose incomes are Php 30,000.00 and below.
Did you know I was not yet a bonafide Filipino citizen when I voted to ratify the 1987 Constitution when I was 18 years old. I did not make it to the National Registry until a late registration of live birth filed with NSO and Local Civil Registrar in Paniqui Tarlac in 1990! I was a bonafide Filipino citizen when I voted in 1992 National Elections where I voted for Miriam Santiago(surprise! surprise!) whose victory announcement as a landslide winner complete with Cathy Veloso-Santillan's backing was cut-short by FVR's supporters in 1992. Miriam's term as a Senator is ending in 2016(maximum terms allowed is 3 six year terms consecutive) , will she run for the presidency again? Her diplomatic privelege as a senator is put to the test with her belleagured colleagues, Bong Revilla Jr. et.al., not invoking it in their latest entanglement with the "Constitution ignorant" Sandiganbayan! The Senate seat can only be vacated by three instances; death, incapacity due to failing health and resignation.
Before they had subjected themselves with the Constitution-ignorant Sandiganbayan, they should have had resigned first!
No court case can stop them in whatever manner while they are INCUMBENT because their Constitutional privelege SAYS SO. Whatever is the case against them, it can be filed but the courts can hear it only after they are out of office as SENATORS.
