To be ashamed of an elected power.

Valéria Barbosa
Posted December 1, 2016 from Brazil

There is a war in my country. Mounted on the power that performs the actions, people that we put in the power by the vote.

Corruption at the highest level making it impossible for the population to be a lady of their minimum rights.

It is shameful to realize that the larger monopoly wears a suit and tie and favors misery perpetuating.

Working for years in the slum City of God I see the community struggling to survive, professionals unable to work, schools constantly closed, children with nothing to do. The police need to do their job, but the discredit of the population in relation to the performance is historical, is the fruit of a relationship built with many errors, where a part of the authority facilitated the perpetuation of the crime.

Today we live the pressure of a construct of inhibitive action to the ill-planned and executed crime.

Who suffers from this situation?

Women who mourn the death of their children!

It is they who continue to the end alongside their children, who mourn the pain of their deaths.

In a country where Democracy has been built so hard, I will ask:

Is this democracy, does not give conditions for the impoverished population to develop? Is democracy not having an intelligence service to provide conditions for socializing prisoners?

Is it democracy to have two governors of a Marvelous City, Rio de Janeiro, imprisoned for filthy crimes that obliterate the people?

It is democracy to have deputies creating mechanism to prevent the judicial power to put in jail the true thieves of the nation.

And we lived a great mourning in our country due to the tragedy of the fall of the plane with more than 70 people, who were fighting for a dignified professional life, that pleased their State, Santa Catarina, the players, technicians, journalists and professionals of Board, we cry for them, we suffer and we are committed to rebuild the team, strengthen the sports club.

We have another team that manipulates the whole nation we are in mourning for these, that having life use it only to maculate the Homeland, to hide under the carpet all the dirt of its political parties.

We have another team that manipulates the whole nation we are in mourning for these, they kill us slowly, without arms, without acting in favor of a better country, being alive they only use to maculate the Homeland, to hide under the carpet all the dirt Of their political parties.

They kill, they impoverish the population, they sully our pride and leave us rooting to remove them from power, but there is a culture of family formation occupying positions and electing politically.

You should not have relatives running for political office. We live this monopoly in the press, and in the Planalto.

Hi Valeria,

I know what you mean about questioning democracy. It should be a government for the people and not a select few or monopoly. I'm so sorry to hear about the war and turmoil in your country. Is anything being done? How long has it been going on, and is there any light at the end of the tunnel? I hope and pray the turmoil will cease for you someday, and someday soon:-)
