She wants to get elected into Palasur to get immunity for arrest. Why don’t the other parties offer some candidate for Parlasur, make a unified list and get the whore to face justice.May 12th, 2015 - 11:15 am - Link - Report abuse 0
If most people want the government to leave then there is no chance that she wins.
I hope that she suspends the election because of civil unrest and subversive activity and just hangs around indefinitely.May 12th, 2015 - 03:29 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
@2 Our politicians are too selfish to unite for anything, and CFK would get enough votes anyway thanks to all the K punteros that remain.May 12th, 2015 - 05:18 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
To its utter despair, the Argentine political opposition will have to face an election. For a long time, they tried to unseat CFK before her time with various plots, that of prosecutor Alberto Nisman being the last one. It did not work.May 12th, 2015 - 05:53 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
So, as in any healthy democracy, those who have been spreading accusations against the current government have now to come up with their own ideas, put them in front of the citizens, and see if they can get elected.
That's Argentina today!

Including to stop abusing of the fascist parodies of conspiracies.
TG Argentina has a liberal and illuminist National Constitution based on the masonic principles of power renewal and alternation.
Argentina will have to decide whether to continue immersed in an old and outdated fascism or enter culturally, politically and economically in the century.
Change will not be easy since the consevative, populist and fascist Catholic traditions are still very strong and lead. The influence of an Argentine pope does not help to promote changes.
Anyway, in one way or in another the good think is that CKF will be the past. I will toast with plenty joy CFK passage to history. It will be the end of one of the darkest political era in Argentina.
FREE AT LAST...FREE AT LAST.. BY THE GRACE OF ALMIGHTY GOD WILL BE FREE AT LAST !!!!
