The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. . It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

History of Benito Soliven, Isabela, Philippines
The town is named after the Hon. Benito Soliven, Congressman of Santo Domingo, Ilocos Sur. Benito Soliven defeated former Secretary of Interior Elpidio Quirino in the Assembly elections of 1938.
About Benito T. Soliven, the man
- Source: http://law.upd.edu.ph verbatim
Soliven studied law at the University of the Philippines and graduated summa cum laude. He placed third in the 1921 Bar Examinations and became the first lawyer of his hometown, Sto. Domingo, Ilocos Sur. When he was a congressman, he sponsored bills which were enacted into law such as the University of the Philippines Basilan Land Grant, the National Defense Law, and the National Board of Review for Moving Pictures, among others.
- Source: Phlistar.com - Vebatim article dated: March 28, 2003
Born to Capt. Isabelo Soliven of the Revolutionary Army and Dorotea Tagorda in Sto. Domingo, Ilocos Sur on March 21, 1898, Benito Soliven was orphaned at the age of four. Taken into custody of a severe relative who treated him as a menial servant, Bitong as he was called managed to go through primary grades by sheer perseverance. Later, he studied at the Colegio Seminario at Vigan under the Spanish Jesuits and finished law at the University of the Philippines while teaching at the Ateneo grade school in order to earn his keeps.
During his senior year at the UP College of Law, Soliven won the coveted Manuel L. Quezon gold medal for oratory with the piece entitled Ave Triuamphator. The subject was war, not knowing that several years later a more devastating one would come and overwhelm the country and that he himself would go to fight on the battlefields of Bataan as a major in September of 1921, he had passed the Bar exams and returned to Ilocos Sur. As a legal practitioner and the first lawyer of his hometown Sto. Domingo, he gave his services free to those who were too destitute to hire a lawyer.
In 1925, after having an unfruitful year in his home province as a lawyer, Benito Soliven made a pilgrimage to Rome as a delegate of the Defensores de la Libertad and visited the leading European countries. In the same year, he toured the United States where he gave lectures in many schools.
Soliven’s rise and fame in the political arena was not born overnight. Hindered by financial constraints, he extensively campaigned from barrio to barrio always living among the common people. Thus, "the champion of small towns," in his first bid to politics, had made a dramatic entrance by winning over veteran politician Judge Simeon Roxas via a landslide in 1928.
Around the time, Representative Benito Soliven married Pelagia Villaflor, after almost seven years since their first meeting.
Soliven’s dedication and zealousness as a public servant brought him overwhelming victory over then Sen. Elpidio Quirino in the 1938 election. His resounding triumph made history as he won over Quirino, who had been the senator and the secretary of the interior.
Benito Soliven never rested on his laurels. The three-term congressman was twice valedictorian of the legislature as he had authored the most number of bills enacted into law. It was Soliven who presented the first bills amending the Constitution for the re-election of the president and by providing for the establishment of the Senate. He created a Basilan Land Grant to subsidize the UP as a state university.
Other laws which were authored by Soliven gave birth to Commonwealth Act 628 which called for the revision of all substandard laws. Another law enabled the National Development Co. to provide for the distribution of public lands to homesteaders reserving one-half of all public lands on both sides of the national highways for distribution among settlers. Likewise, he was instrumental in the passage in part of acts such as improving the national defense law, and a bill that created the National Board of Review for Moving Pictures, and many others.
Soliven greatly believed that a "public man should remember that he belongs first to the people before he belongs to his party." At the 1941 outbreak of the Pacific War, Soliven was called a National Assemblyman as the Congress had been reconstituted into a unicameral body.
But he chose to volunteer as a Captain in the reserves. He had 10 children but the thought of serving his country and fighting in a war was, to him, a sacred duty. He was promoted to Major on the battlefield.
After the death march and months as a prisoner-of-war in Camp O’Donnell, Capas, Tarlac, Soliven was released on July 23, 1942. Within a month after his return home, he took a turn for the worse and died of malaria.
He died on Jan. 10, 1943 but declared in his delirium, "There is so much to do — so much yet to be done." He was 44 years
- The CAP Family of Companies pays tribute today (March 28, 2003) to Benito Soliven, father of STAR publisher and chairman of the board Maximo V. Soliven, through the unveiling of the Benito Soliven statue and the opening of the Soliven Memorabilia at the CAP Building in Plaza Burgos, Vigan City in Ilocos Sur. CAP pays tribute to great men who have dedicated their lives in the service of God and fellow men through the installation of statues, memorabilia, and holding of symposia in their honor. In the past, CAP had honored Presidents Manuel Quezon, Sergio Osmeña, Manuel Roxas, and Diosdado Macapagal, Silliman University founder Dr. David Sutherland Hibbard, US Gen. Douglas MacArthur, and the Rev. Gregorio Aglipay.

This is the.
- Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.
The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress. Not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.
When roads or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."
- Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
- The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..
Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.
The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.
The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.
- If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
- If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
- If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
- Are you beginning to get the point?
Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible. Stop blaming others.
- BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
- The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
- The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
- "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. . It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
- DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.
Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.
- Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of . Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

Natural Resources of Benito Soliven, Isabela, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.
