Most Filipinos would choose to be ruled by USA World Police than China.

More true than most here can imagine.
A future as China's bitch will make the troubled history with the USA look like a cake walk...and most Filipinos know this...

Does this mean you prefer P.I. over D.R.?
And many expats want it to be that way. After all, if you are a bald and paunchy 55 year old ( my future) who wants to land a 22 year old model quality GF, and you have a pension of $1200 a month, you don't go to Singapore, Japan or Malaysia looking for one, do you? They'll just laugh you out of the country.
You go where you become the last great hope on Earth for such a girl. Heck, I knew one dude who was 70 and he was living off of his reverse mortgage in Virginia and some social security. He'd manage to fly to Mindanao and gallivant with 20 year old cuties.

The Philippines is a sovereign country and is not ruled by anyone and short of a very unlikely military intervention, will stay that way for centuries. The USA will not annex it and/or rule it. China's annexation is unlikely- just like Iraq's annexation of Kuwait. So the above argument is moot.
And yes, I prefer PI over DR. And as time goes on, that preference will be growing even more.
