    Silva is obviously rattling Dumbass Dilma and her crooked cronies.

    I would like her to be elected but perhaps there has not been sufficient time for her to learn the ropes: the lies put out by the present crooks about the role of the central bank in removing food off their tables is laughable when you realise that most of them exist on the Bolsa Familia Scheme and nothing is to change on that.

    The whole problem with Brazil's politics is that the PT has infiltrated their cronies in every level of the Federal, as well as State governments where they are the situation. Those who support the PT are either benefiting from direct handouts, such as the 'bolsa famíla' recipients, or are who we call the “caviar leftists”, people of a reasonably high social standing who openly manifest their sympathy for the PT , because it's convenient for them...
    The PT has adopted Goebbels' tactics to mislead the public, and as to Marina having to deal with the lies and slander they resort to, she is showing a remarkable capacity to fight back. She has to stay smart and not allow any lowlife insinuations to go unanswered.

    I absolutely love all you experts on Brasil who live outside the country. You have no clue how Marina will behave if she is elected, but her statements in various venues here have made it clear that she will suck up to the evangelicals and to her elite handlers. She has changed parties several times just to run if possible She lost big time in 2010, and PT continued its work to raise more and more people out of poverty. According to the opposition candidates political corruption was invented by Lula and PT. Please! Don't perpetuate this myth about Goeggels. You have the wrong information about the political leanings of fascist Goebbels vesus the left government. PT never said anything bad about Marina until she opened her mouth and began to badmouth PT and the government. Don't worry. Dilma's numbers are up and Marina will convict herself out of her own mouth. Her elite puppeteers will not be able to stop that. At this point many expert outside observers, as well as many of us inside Brasil have some doubts about Marina's original intentions to run for VP. She certainly has enough friends, both in the US and in on the right that could have easily arranged an “accident” for Campos, and likely would for their own selfish interests. The USA doesn't much like Dilma because they can't control her. So they want someone in her place that will hurl Brasil right back to 1984 or earlier.

    @3 Fbear
    “I absolutely love all you experts on Brasil who live outside the country.”
    Your first assumption is wrong. I have lived in Brazil for decades, and still do.

    “You have no clue how Marina will behave if she is elected...”
    Only partially correct....I suppose your balls are made out of crystal so you can see what's cumming ?? Anyone who accompanies the presidential campaign, will most likely always have a “clue” as to the outcome....If 'you' don't, that your problem.
    The fact that many Brazilian politicians change parties is nothing new ; that Marina got the hell out of the PT , because Lula didn't respect her ideas, is a point in her favour. She knows the beast. While I didn't appreciate her having sat on the fence in the 2010 election, today, my concern is to get rid of the PT and stop them in their tracks trying to turn Brazil into a VZ/Cuban type State, where they would be the only Party. Think about that.
    As to my reference to Goebbels, and the PT's similar tactics in lying to the ignorant public at large, until they believe it as the Gospel truth, I stick by my guns - but this does not sit well with you because you are - obviously - a PeTista. You say the PT is raising people out of poverty...sure, by throwing money at them (in exchange for votes) - how many of them do you think would be able to stand on their own two feet if all the handouts dried up tomorrow ?? What has the “Bolsa Familia” done towards making people really independent again ? very much so, most of the recipients are content to stay exactly where they are, producing nothing and just being a burden to society.
    If you believe all these conspiracy theories about Eduardo Campos' death, then besides being a PeTista, you must be kind of thick. And if you can't see the slander and lies being invented by the PT to try to tarnish Marina's image, because she is a threat to their 'power project', you are doubly thick. Have a good night.
