    Macri will go to any lengths to gain a few more votes. He cut a ribbon for a Peron sculpture, and seeing the polls still stubbornly refuse to move up, is now promising to better Kirchnerism with a pension for seniors, free medical care and free medicines.
    Too little, too late, Mauricio.

    Quique will be happy for a Kirchnerite, even though he is completely clueless what is happening in Argentina from reality versus his googled virtual knowledge. Quique.......pedophiles are accepted in the Kirchner world......go home........grow some balls your feckless coward. Live in the land you think is so wonderfully managed.

    “Argentines will get what they vote for”

    If only that were the case. Can you really believe Scioli will lose, irrespective of the votes cast?

    OOps there is me thinking that they would have a fair and transparent election, silly me, smacked wrist for being such a “ boludo ” What does it take to have fair elections? Perhaps an International body to see that it is transparent. The FALKLANDS had one when they voted to be a BOT.

    @1 Why are you not buying your plane ticket to head down to Argentina? Seriously, go down there and see if it lives up to your expectations.

    #6 He is stupid but not a complete moron. He is educated and knows better than to move back, besides the fact that is can't return.

    Failing to understand what's going on in Argentina, the above posters show their disconcert with aimless rambling.
    They have given too much credit to Kirchner bashing inside and outside of the country, and believed the resulting picture was accurate.
    Of course, reality being what it is, people will simply vote for people they have known for the last 12 years and whose record they approve.
    And poor Malvinenses will be left wondering what the heck happened and why nobody ever listens to them!

    Like a true Argentine, get out and vote.....again and again and again. Until Hanibel Fernendez is sure the Commies have won.

    Only under Kirchner did Argentina slump form Latam's # 2 economy to #3....and soon to be #4.

    HOORAH....Way to fucking go!!!

    Now get out there and buy some votes!!!....

    .Empanada's, mate y cervasas para todos!!!
