Election time again

In a few days we gonna have the first election day (two fases, in wich the two most voted candidats go to the 101). There´s an ocean of candidates, a half of them with dumb or nonsense political nicknames (it´s common here), and there´s nobody to vote for.
Of course seventy percent of the Rio´s population – and probably the whole country´s – already know who to vote for, a huge mass of politically alienated people, who chooses their candidates by the most stupid reasons (such as beauty, promisses of privileges, possibility of getting involved in some corruption and getting profit from it, etc).
But for the population part who can effective read, and for those people who have read the newspapers (at least the frontpages), these days are days for doubts, dilemas and no hope.
It´s the first election after Lula´s government: for two decades he was the left sided candidat who (one day) could save the country; in 2002 he´s finnaly arrived at the capital and was the leader of one of the worst political freak shows Brazil´s ever seen. For the world´s surprise (but not our) it seems that there will be context for his reelection, so there´s no perspective for this country in short-middle term. It´s a pitty and a shame.
(sorry about my bad english, it could be even worst…).. :-)

    even in the United States, the news is talking about how Lula came in with so much promise but how after 4 years, his promises never really materialized.

    Too bad but Lula is nothing short of a scumbag criminal like most other politicians. I just can’t stand that asshole, no more. :P
