    READ: Quoatable quotes from President Duterte's second SONA

    The recent State of the Nation Address (SONA) given by President Rodrigo Duterte in front of numerous government officials, hundreds of political figures, and in front of the millions of people comprising the Filipino citizenry, became the subject of arguments and discourses on the part of the opposition and anti-administration forces.

    President Rodrigo Duterte’s second SONA which lasted for less than two hours, entailed several controversial issues and ardent concerns of the country. 

    Here are some “QUOTABLE QUOTES OF PRESIDENT DUTERTE’S 2ND SONA” published by Oscar Picazo:

    1. (To the opposition) Look beyond your biases, your prejudices, your ambitions, and your political agenda.
    2. It is not the peace of the dead but the peace of the living that we seek.
    3. (To mining companies) Restore the virginity of the soil, or I will tax you to hell.
    4. (To critics of the war on drug) What have you done in the name of human rights?
    5. (To little brown brothers) Bakit kayo bilib sa puti?
    6. Capital punishment is not about deterrence but about retribution.
    7. The advantage of rebels is that they think you are afraid to die. And that is why I went to Marawi so I can say, I am not afraid to die.
    8. To the enemies of the state, talagang bully ako.
    9. Either we have laws in this country, or we do not.
    10. Masyadong demanding ang NDF (National Democratic Front), hindi naman nanalo sa eleksiyon.
    11. (To the US Government) Give us back the Balangiga bells. They are ours. They belong to the Philippines. They are part of our heritage.
    12. (To civil servants) We are all workers in government. The public is our employer.
    13. (To the Supreme Court) The TRO is the bane of our efficiency. (TRO refers to the system of losing parties to file temporary restraining orders on the winning bid.)
    14. Change (the onerous) procurement procedure or I will change you.
    15. (On the challenge of reforming a corrupt system) It is easier to start from scratch than to rebuild the rotten.
