Where do the get the signatures?[edit]

How come of every Filipino pres. there is their own signature? Australian Jezza 11:35, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

I believe this is done for each article on the American President, and I think this occurs for many other articles. Not sure why it is done, but there is no policy against it (other than copyright issues). User:Zscout370 (Return Fire) 18:23, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

hekasi[edit]

Garcia was born in Talibon, Bohol to Policronio Garcia and Ambrosia Polistico (who were native Boholanos). He is featured as the lone star in the Bohol provincial flag as the only Philippine President produced by the province. Another star shall be added for every Boholano who shall also become president of the Philippines.[2]

Garcia grew up with politics, with his father serving as a municipal mayor for four terms. He acquired his primary education in his native Talibon, then took his secondary education in Cebu Provincial High School. He briefly took law courses at Silliman University in Dumaguete City. He then studied in Philippine Law School and earned his degree in 1923. He was among the top ten in the bar examination.

Rather than practice law right away, he worked as a teacher for two years at Bohol Provincial High School. He became famous for his poetry in Bohol, where he earned the nickname "Prince of Visayan Poets" and the "Bard from Bohol".

He started his political career in 1925, scoring an impressive victory running for congressman representing the third district of Bohol. He was elected for another term, but served only until 1931 when he successfully ran for governor of Bohol. He served as provincial governor for two terms. He became a member of the congress in 1946, and was elected three times to the senate for three consecutive terms from 1941 to 1953.

Garcia was the running mate of Ramon Magsaysay in the presidential election of 1953. He was appointed Secretary of Foreign Affairs by President Ramon Magsaysay, for four years concurrently serving as vice-president. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Marry jane (talkcontribs) 04:33, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

outlawing communism[edit]

I had to take that one sentence down. It appeared to me unclear, useless and non neutral. "With this legislative piece, the sustained government campaign for peace and order achieved considerable progress and success." --Makhnovitch (talk) 16:33, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
