The Top Ten

1
Ferdinand Marcos (10th President)
He's the only president to make peso equal to dollars. 1 peso = 1 US dollar.

The Philippine Strongman. In his time, our economy, though not anymore the 2nd richest country in Asia, was very progressive with the many infrastructural development in the Philippines.

It was necessary for him to declare martial law to prevent the Philippines from being communist and to discipline the Filipinos.

In 1986, the Philippines' downfall started. It became poor thanks to a housewife with no political experience being the Filipino president. Now, Benigno Aquino is the pres. Of the Philippines, wait for his incompetence!

Marcos shall be recognized as the Philippines' greatest president.
I know he's corrupt and dictatorial, but still he was the one who made effective reforms and boosted our economy. He also enforced discipline and yes, fear, in every heart of the Filipino. But that helped somehow.

3Emilio Aguinaldo (1st President)
I chose him because he is the president who fought for his country unlike the other presidents.
The one who fight for the Philipine Independence along with Andres Bonifacio. Declared the independence of the country. He Became the First President of the Philipine Republic (The first republic in Asia). He may be better than Pres. Marcos if not because of the controversies of Bonifacio Execution.
If not because of him we don't have a Republic right now and a Free country Only that I can say...

4Fidel V. Ramos (12th President)
Under Ramos the chinese occupied the spratly islands...!
RAMOS was a better leader than Madam Cory...

5Manuel L. Quezon (2nd President)
He did not allow Philippines to be a part of the U.S.A. but a commonwealth country separated from the states.
He deserves to be on top of the one who sold the entire country to the enemeis
He was the best president for me because he give hope for poor Pilipino..

6Diosdado Macapagal (9th President)
Because of his simplicity

7Corazon Aquino (11th President)

8Benigno Aquino III (15th President)
Jack-ass
Good governance and fight against corruption, AFP modernization to safeguard Philippine territory, I vote for him even though he signed the cyber crime law.
He is the only (non-corrupt) philippine president that make the Philippines fastest growing economy not just in Asia but also in the whole world, despite of calamities that occured in the country the Philippines remains the fastest growing economy in Asia and he is the one who cured the country of being named the sick man of Asia with the new title of "the strongest man of Asia..

9Manuel Roxas (5th President)

10Carlos P. Garcia (8th President)
The first ever President who thought of Filipinos well being first... Thus, the " Filipino-First" policy
It's about time to re-assess the Filipino first culture, a distinct and self-progressive country. We need to revive the FILIPINO FIRST POLICY. In that way, Filipinos can control the economic growth and not influenced by other nationalities and also not to benefit a few Filipinos.
Oh what could have been? It seemed like Garcia had a vision for a more domestic sufficient country. A far cry from the current state of the republic.

The Contenders

11Joseph "Erap" Ejercito Estrada (13th President)

12Sergio OsmeƱa (4th President)
Benigno heis not a good president eevveerr...

13Jose P. Laurel (3rd President)

14Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (14th President)
He made a lots of highways, bridges, airport, seaport, and lots more. Don't be blind open your eyes and you will see the lots of changes in our country
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo was credited for stablilizing our economy. I credit her for making the economy of this country a strong and stable one that we have right now.
Media needed a scapegoat and needed to point their camera of blame to her. What she's done for the country was very much downplayed and the controversies blown out of proportion. Media just makes negative thinkers/positive thinkers out of the things they show/repeatedly say to people. They owe something to the Aquinos, that much is true. And GMA has snubbed their pettiness so she got bad coverage throughout her term.
