What’s with EDCA?

What’s with the noise about EDCA? Why are some Filipinos afraid of losing their Filipino identity or the country’s sovereignty?

Hypocrisy aside, show me a Filipino who does not have a single American influence in him. Even our day-to-day language in the office is American English and majority of the Pinoys, “kahit matigas ang dila”, want to sound American. In most homes today, Pinoy parents talk to their children in English kahit na minsan, baluktot ang accent nung bata.
