    So typical of an Argentinian - exaggerating as always! But being ”INTELLIGENT” is a bit too much to swallow!

    Interesting. The main alliances have all included a Peronist.

    Macri-Pichetto (Peronist-Kirchnerist)

    Lavagna - Urtubey (Governor of Salta, FpV)

    Fernandez - Fernandez (No need for references)

    Is Argentina evolving towards Peronism?

    “Interesting. The main alliances have all included a Peronist....Is Argentina evolving towards Peronism?”

    Not really. Peronism has evolved and split into different factions over time to the point where it is almost meaningless. Why else would there be multiple “Peronist” parties that don't agree with each other?

    REF: “Pichetto pledges a “democratic, capitalist, intelligent, productive” Argentina”:

    If one really WANTS that the present system MUST change for the betterment of the masses [of ANY country]; the masses “NEED to be moved” by an initiative of the concerned intellectuals in ONE Right Direction - IRRESPECTIVE to the political affiliation [or in spite of who one's “Favorite Crook” is]!

    Our merely “Blurted” Opinions = USED Toilet-Paper!
