Lol. I'm too one-sided? Are you somebody born just yesterday? From the Singsons of The North, the Fuentebellas, the Dutertes, the Ampatuan.. the list of political dynasties goes on. I'm just gonna give you a very specific example, since you ask for it Karaso. A few years back powerful families in Camsur want the province to split. Obviously, the seats are not enough to accomodate them. Even the Fuentebellas fought amongst each other on recent elections; And the son of former President Arroyo became a party-list congressman, representing "security guards," how funny is that? the son of former speaker of the house Nograles is presently a party-list congressman. That's because Davao only has 3 congressional seats. Even though party-list is only for marginalized sectors of the society, pero ayun at di pinalagpas ng mga gahaman sa kapangyarihan. If the promoters of Federalism really want to improve economy by getting more funds to the provinces/cities, why not simply amend the economic provisions of the constitution? Like put into writing some changes in the percentage of IRA that gets into the coffers of the local governments? but they won't because it would not open new seats for them to put their asses onto.
