+Vox it is becoming now. Brazil has many socialist parties that power influence in the government. Including it has the PT - partido do trabalhadores (workers's party) - the biggest and most corrupt party in the entire south America, and it has been to power for many years; alienating the population and embarrassing Brazil's reputation. Socialism never works, and Brazil is just the proof that it can destroy the biggest and richest countries in the world.
Let's face it. All predominantly Catholic countries in Latin America and South America are 3rd world and in a horrible condition. The same is true of Islamic nations. The once Protestant U.S. is falling apart because Catholics are slowly getting control. Already the U.S. Supreme Court has a majority of Catholics Justices.
Why are South Americans so violent? Sometimes I think what happened in North America should've happened to the rest of the Americas. Instead of a shithole of poverty and crime you'd have a superpower like the USA.
Lula is actually the marxist mastermind behind this country's downfall. He used Dilma only as cannon fodder. I am glad he is arrested, so now we can begin sorting things out.
How do I know all of this? I was born here 38 years ago. I've seen things...
Lula built the economy up with Ethanol and Exports... Rousseff plundered the country and sold out to Petrobras...
Typical Bloomberg Propaganda to blame commodity prices instead of Globalist Corruption... *Death to Globalism !!*
Welcome to São Paulo, Brazil!
20 minutes after it...
Someone robbed your wallet!
You try to call the police...
Your cell phone was robbed
You go to the central police....
The police can't do anything for you!
Next time, visit Rio de Janeiro!
You will know those guns that you saw in video games, grenades, Ak47 and some bazoocas on the streets!
Brazil has been shamefully exploited since the 1500's when the English began making slavery labor upon the people to obtain the fine rubber that comes from within the Brazilian wood. The English also sought profit from the Brazilian wood.
Skipping ahead to recent times, history repeats itself when the gummy bear factory uses people to obtain the Carnauba Wax that has to be scraped off the leaf; the people are paid $7.00 a day and cannot return to their homes until the job is finished; the job can take months of labor. Meanwhile, the people have no clean water to drink.
I truly believe Democracy is a tool for keeping poor countries down. Let's be honest we're talking about populations with a very low level of education and with such low life's standards that they will be dragged by a populism that, in the short term might give them something very little and not very substantial, while at the same time sacrificing the future of the country. Democracy is not for everyone, and even in countries where people have more education and better standards of living they usually have a fake Democracy. RIP the Third World.
the central problem of Brazil is its manipulated economy and absurd taxes, and in the last governments to make worse the government burst its credit card and the economy already strangled since the foundation of the republic, but that today is about to die
I live in Orlando Florida where there are lots of Brazillian tourists, Brazil is the one place in the world I vow to never go. They come here in big groups and act like they own the place, chanting and causing all kinds of mayhem. Their kids act like animals.
Freemasons have been destroyng brazil since Princess Isabel and DOn PEdro II with Baron of Mauá tried to give earth and independence to blacks, ehwn they found out, the mason, I mean, Oligarcs stabilshed the republic.
Smash down the mason, and well have a great Brazil. We need to have independent states as in USA, as Bolsonaro has proposed.
The brazilian problem is simple: The people. The governors are just a mirror of the people. We are very corrupt by nature in our daily life. If we want to change our country, we should start by ourselves. Probably the best governors that governed this country were the Emperor D. Pedro II and the militarys, they really cared about the country. Brazilian regress started in 1985 and will continue for a long time. The socialist ideology ruined this country.
352 under investigation!!! Fuck they cannot all be from the workers party??? Don't shoot i'm not Brazilian hence just asking a question. I did notice that Lula was given 12 years jail recently and the electoral fraud that Dilma was ousted for is something lots of leaders all over the world do regularly. It does look a bit like the Brazilian judiciary has a bit of an agenda. Lawfare
Well I was referencing to President Dilma Rousseff's case also. I am aware of the evidence against Lula and I personally believe he is guilt but I think Brazils judicial system (in criminal law) is a very old and primitive one where Judges are allowed (Think Judge Mora) was chief investigator, constantly publicly bashing Lula on TV and basically acted as Judge and prosecuter in the trial later. That is not an impartial Judge hence it was a bias account. It's the system of Judges being able to do such things that worries me. Things are not perfect in the UK but that system was thrown out in 1839!!!
is bullshit, she was removed by the investigated politicians in an agreement, that audio leaked but there is no interest on the big companies to tell the true at all because by taking down dilma they got oil cheap from Michel Temer the vice president so saying that taking down a nationalist president to buy cheap oil is great to the U.S. gets oil with no war
