It’s Election Day in Argentina and, as usual, you can’t tell the corrupt politicians from the corrupt politicians without a score card.
While (President) Cristina Kirchner isn’t up for election this go round, her party is on the ropes. It’s commonly thought here that CK is hoping to have her party in power for the next two years so that a Constitutional Amendment will be pushed through allowing her to be President-for-life.
Her opponents are working the graveyard shift in trying to get CK’s opposition in power, thus putting CK in her corrupt place.
Having laundered, stolen and hijacked millions of dollars, CK and the rest of the slimy people that work for her have been dishing out government handouts to the poor as fast as Santa comes down the chimney.
With 70% of the population somehow on the dole — and indebted to CK — it’s unclear which party will be the victor.
In the end, it doesn’t matter. Both sides are greedy and corrupt.
Kind of sounds like American politics, doesn’t it?
