Manuel L. Quezon was inaugurated president on November, 1935. Considered to be the first Filipino President of the Philippine Commonwealth under the United States.
He was famous for his remarks:
“I prefer a country run like hell by Filipinos to a country run like heaven by Americans. Because, however bad a Filipino government might be, we can always change it.”
I don’t necessarily agree with that quote above, and i’m not being a US suck up.
He redeemed himself by saying this:
“My loyalty to my party ends where my loyalty to my country begins.”
