    Wouldn't be poetic justice a Lula-backed candidate winning the presidential election?

    This in spite of Lula's suspicious imprisonment, threats of military coup and the various maquinations of representatives of the real powers.

    Brazil can still win.

    “Poetic Justice” is too much of an exaggeration.

    But as I had already mentioned earlier [elsewhere], that by making alliances + tie-ups with the 3rd & the 4th in line; PT has a good chance of winning; if Bolsonaro is unable to reach an agreement with the same crooks.

    It ONLY amounts to: Who can exchange “BETTER” favors with who! And there is no need to be disillusioned. The “good news” is that so far, not all the crooks are politicians. But the “bad news” is that the population is not only letting the crooks be the candidates but they also support AND vote for the crooks! It's up to the masses [mostly ignorant] if they need the crooks to govern them!

    For example, if the politicians like Garotinho - a vast majority are offered “Special Privileges”; are allowed to be the candidates and are supported wholeheartedly by the ignorant masses, to the point of getting elected; I really don't see much of a future for Brazil! It's up to you to agree/disagree.
