Home Argentine Politics and Economics And why not?

And why not?

What do we do wrong to not be one of the best countries to live in the world? Why don't we make it? What are we missing? What is the solution?

Politics and Economics
Y por qué no?

Why can't we  Argentines  be a  world power  ?

 Why can't we have a country without  a crack   ?  With ten times as many  unions  as needed and with billionaires and working  poor  trade unionists. Where they don't squeeze people. Don't perpetuate themselves in power. Where they file tax affidavits like all workers. And don't stop for anything, just because they're politically opposed to the  government . Stoppers that only hold the porteños hostages.

 Where is it written that we cannot be a rich country , that does not need to give social plans. That it is not through political pointers, those who vote for the party to which the pointers respond. A country where State aid is for the one you work, but it is hard to reach the end of the month. With a large family on the other, an  Argentina  where the poor do not have children to collect from the State. Have only those who can maintain and educate well. Without taking them to marches in  Buenos Aires . Marches they go without knowing why. Because they don't tell them. But they give them some money.

In public schools where  teachers  go to classes 95% of the days. They do not indoctrinate students with the dogmas of any political party . Where they don't lie. And they are trained to teach better and better. Because an educated people are not a subdued people. If teachers do not help educate, they are complicit in the people's misery.

How can it be?

How can a country be dignified and free if  justice  is partial?  If the perpetrator has more rights than the victim.  And let us not blame the abandononous society for the evils of all those who commit crime. Because just as some go out to steal, hundreds of thousands more, under the same conditions, choose to put the loin and work. How can  Judges , who do not pay exorbitant salary earnings can administer Justice to the poor? And how is it possible that they respond to a political party?

 Why can't Argentina be a drug free country?  If until 2000 we were. Why do we have to watch our boys die at the hands of the paco? Or at the hands of other boys who kill innocent people, stunned by the paco. How can it be that drug trafficking has reached the villages and we didn't do anything? How is it possible that there are so many bunkers selling drugs in  the Buenos Aires County ? And how many were there before?

 How can the police be an accomplice to criminals?  Let them get out of a prison to go steal. They're dealing drugs. Or turn “a blind eye” to breaches of the law even in the peoples. Not to mention violations that seem minor, such as driving without registration or in a drunk state.

 Why do we have to have corrupt politicians?  Governors, mayors, senators and deputies for life. They don't do anything for his people, but keep him poor. Guys that feed clientelism, filling the state with employees. Helping to increase one of the major problems in Argentina. Rulers who pay works three times what they come out. With our money. That afterwards we can't live as we want. Thanks to us being killed by taxes. To pay expenses that translate nothing more than money for your private accounts. How is it possible for us to allow people to die for works that were collected and not done?

Why can't we have the country we deserve? The one that our  natural and intellectual riches  indicate we should have.  What country will our children live in?  And we are our adulthood.

After looking at this picture, inflation doesn't seem to be so serious, does it?  The economy is fixed. Freedom and morality, no.  And they are transmitted from generation to generation, so as not to be dominated by own or strangers.

Why not? Argentines.

Hola Victoriano! Quiero felicitarte, no solo por la redacción de una nota cuyo contenido posee un elevado tinte socio político, sin que tenga un color partidista... También, por la “altura“ con que expresas una realidad categórica, que nos avergüenza como sociedad, pero que a su vez inspira una luz de esperanza a sabiendas que es posible, no dije fácil... Gracias por tus maneras, pero por sobretodo, por ofrecernos un mensaje + que procura generar conciencia.
