Are you a blind follower or a person of principle?

He may be new to politics, but Pasig Councilor Vico Sotto had another gem of wisdom to share to his followers on Twitter.

The young Sotto said Filipinos tend to be more personality-based rather than issue-minded — meaning, they react to commentaries just because they came from the politiko which they are supporting.

“Here’s a simple test I use to check if I’m being objective, in this case toward President Duterte: If PNoy did or said the same thing in the same context, would I have reacted in the same way?,” Sotto said.

It might sound tricky at first, but it drives the point home.
