    At times I wonder about the gullibility of the voters in Brazil, then I look around and see just what they accept.
    We all know that the increases in government hand outs will vanish faster than ice in a boiling pot of water as soon as the elections are out of the way.
    But the poor have always been brought up to look no further than the next meal.

    The only way aid to the poor can be perpetuated is by voting for Lula.

    It's not possible that in a country that produces so much food (and I'm not talking about soy, because it's not food) there are still hungry human beings!

    I thought we had abolished hunger in 2012. But the neoliberals of capitalism destroyed the country. The capitalists starve the people to death!

    Please don't say the culprit is the victim!

    Mark, Agree completely. The free T-shirts will have worn out long before the promises. Having said that, Brazilian gullibility, like its corruption, is merely more visible, but not fundamentally different from most anyplace else in the world.
