Change Sides

Paulo would if he had an intelligent leader who wasn’t racist, or abided by moral standards, and one who respected the constitution.

He wasn’t elected to change it, but alas he likes to think he can lead like a dictator in his fascist way. Apart from that he is outlandish and incites hatred. His band of followers support his madness, so if anyone supports him then that is a breach of normality in my book.


He doesn’t follow the rules which is more of an attempt to boost his ego which has nothing to do with politics or leading the country. His followers say he is a real down to earth character who means well, so Paulo asks, “Why did he go against logic in relation to the pandemic?”


Ordinary folk on his side say he’s a family man. Does that mean he should encourage agricultural growth into the Amazon rainforest to supply the world with produce and make the country richer, or rather the pockets of a few? Can’t they just keep outside of it?


Then you have to ask yourself, if that is for the good of the country considering deforestation of such an important forest is against international protocol when a country like China has pledged to plant 70 billion trees in their land? He does nothing to improve climate change which is a serious topic.


If he had his way, he would change the Supreme court by firing magistrates and controlling it like a dictator. He may have good intentions, but then deep down he may not. If he got his way, in theory he could use it to lead like Pinochet.


That statement might not be liked, but he has made it clear that he agrees with certain techniques that go hand in hand with such a leader.


After his rise to power, Pinochet persecuted leftists, socialists, and political critics, resulting in the executions of 1,200 to 3,200 people, the internment of as many as 80,000 people, and the torture of tens of thousands.


He buys votes as seen in the recent lorry/truck driver demonstrations. He started to pay them off up until the election and before over 600 highways were blocked which brought massive chaos to the economy. Yes, he had paid them four of the six one thousand reais emergency relief package when business was almost back to normal.


The man said he would walk away if he lost the election, but we have seen to the contrary by his attitude and what is going on around us.


In today’s standards this is intolerable. Paulo says we have to preserve our democracy and stamp out leaders such as him. They cannot be trusted!


Take care!
