It seems that the economic imperialism of the so-called Latin American left is supporting the election of Piedad Cordoba for the president of Columbia. They’ve already announced her candidacy on the screen-crawler for the nomination for we who were preparing for this new hour of the awakening of the peoples of the continent.
This result in this election would guarantee Venezuela peace on its west flank, but above all, would enable to removal of the northern giant’s base in this Latin American state and assure the entry of a new country in the region to the strategic hemispheric alliance against the interventionism and hegemonic interference of the United States. Thus they affirm the demagogic “Made in Cuba” and back the continuity “of the perpetual soldiers of socialism” — although in Latin America it is showing itself more humane and multi-party for now — to continue to place kings in front of their respective peoples, who give them free education in order to then try to avoid their thinking or their acting only in the direction that best suits themselves.
With regards to health — as in the Cuban case — where it is also free, it is mediocre in general and the care and services are aggravated by the material scarcities of every kind and also of doctors, who are sent out of Cuba under state patronage masked as solidarity. To compound the South American problems in general, they are even thinking of creating a continental army to defend the interests — those of the caudillos, of course — of the countries of the region.
These forms of “divine” government, with no alternation in power, originate with their citizens indefinitely “electing” the same person or group for the top job, as it has been historically in Cuba, despite multiple red numbers that the olive-green administration has shown through 54 years.
The government of my country, seems to be the malevolent brain — through parasitic dependency and disability — the anti-United States design, and is dedicated to bleeding other peoples through exporting this failed model, while waiting mouth-agape for the barrels of oil and all possible assistance that feeds them and supports their expensive and impoverishing stay at the head of their nation.
Just as the presence of Ms. Córdoba mercifully facilitated the release of hostages by the FARC, it’s possible that her assuming the Colombian presidency would produce the disarmament of that or another army in order to attribute to her this victory in the leftist struggle and justify, in the first instance, her reelection.
I do not know whether Colombia, with its complex reality of the drug trade, armies, insurgents, drug cartels and other problems that I probably do not know, will find it easy to impose a queen of popular image; what truly saddens me the installation in the countries of this region the model that is shown to the rest of the world as humanistic, but that has led Cubans, after more than half a century, to poverty, division of family and society, violation of fundamental rights, prisons and exile, and national bankruptcy.
