As some of you might know, México is under Election times.
Since some months ago, a student driven movement called "Yo soy 132" has been manifesting against Enrique Peña Nieto, the ignorant murderous right-hand politician that was one of four candidates to presidency.
First of all, he's the favorite of the masses, but not for any proposition or clever act, but because he's good looking, married to a t.v. actress and gives free shit. I mean FREE SHIT, many people sold their votes to him, just for some monthly supply of meat and eggs, or just the equivalence of 50 dollars or so, and i don't blame them for taking it, i mean, if we look, we are a third world country, number one worldwide in corruption, where the government takes all the money and nothing goes for the people, where the same people has the monopolies since many years ago, and also possess this country, where our president has a salary of almost twice as much as Barack Obama, while maintaining a "war" against "organized crime"(generating more than 60,000 deaths, most of them, innocent civilians), where every politician gets part of their gains by inversions on narcotraffic , Even the Zapatist army, that bases itself around one of our main historical heroes, is considered criminal, and the list goes on, but i guess you catch the point.
Well, today the voting took place, everything points to Enrique's triumph, and every single attempt from this movement to make the country aware of the all-favorite's shady business, that involve mass repression, prosecution and rape of homosexuals, the murder of his first wife, alliances with almost every media, and media coverage, all failed to their purpose, since at this time, this "man" is almost sure the one to be our future president.
And now, i feel like SHIT. i feel really disappointed of my own people (not that i was ever proud), how can a country vote for the same party that slowly destroyed it for 82 years? are we that Alzheimerish? how are we going to let the same people take over this country once more ?
But of course, the powerful give their people what they want: Football for him and Comedies or soap-operas for her, dumb cartoons for the children, and no F####ing support for arts, i live in a family of artists, and it's hard; the art has to look for the people, ignorance prevails here, and it will continue like that with this guy as president.
I'm writing this not only to inform you guys, but to try to ease the frustration that i felt, the frustration of thousands of students that thought this time a change was possible, just to be received with the usual shit, also by the burning desire of once in my life know a real democratic government, where votes cannot be bought, media altered, even a local party printed a fake paper that stated that the favorite and only left wing candidate had dropped out of his campaign.
I feel this is unfair, for my future and other Young people's, we have no choice but to live in a retro-producent, anti evolving, violent, fear induced country.
...sometimes i just wish that we screwed something with another country, bad enough to get this shithole nuked and erasen from the map...
But seriously, i'm done with this, i have no hope on times to come, and i find coward the solution that many fellow Mexicans take, so i don't know what to do...
We can't bring it back, ancient wisdom is lost, and atlantis must emerge, as it sank.
