Mexico In War - Calderon Vs Lopez Obrador
A few hours after the election, something didn't seem right, opponent candidate from the Democratic Revolution Party Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador started war and was in denial to his loss claiming victory as well; he decided to create an "alternate government" before Dec.1 presidential inauguration. He called his followers for assistant stating that this had been a "fraudulent victory" by Calderon.
Well, today is Dec. 1 and Felipe Calderon has given his first speech to the Mexican Nation at the National Auditory and such thing didn't occur, or did it? What we have seen since the elections is constant verbal and physical wars between the two followers, but especially Lopez's Obrador. This leftist and sore loser filled the streets with millions of people protesting and camping out for a recount that never occurred. December 1, 2006 was no different then previous protests, senators and congressmen started with a verbal brawl at the Mexican Congress and it ended in a fight, in my opinion a very immature thing to do. Amazingly enough, the country seems to be divided by a large percentage, making these problems more constant and more dangerous. My question to all the leftists is, why in the heck are you guys focusing your energy on this crap? Mexico is in bad shape and has been for a long time, the Mexican government simply sucks, they don't create jobs for people, they simply steal money and are filled of corruption, which makes me sad.
Hopefully, elected president Felipe Calderon will do otherwise and show us Mexicans there is still hope to better this beautiful country. During his first speech he promised the every newborn will now have free medical care and that his annual salary will be lowered, which is a good start in my opinion. Sadly, there is no perfect government in this world, look at Bush and his immature decisions with Iraq's problem, look at North Korea and Venezuela, this government world is a complete mess filled with lies and double standards. My only dream and hope is that Calderon shows Mexicans otherwise and lets us believe that there is still hard working and trustful people, Mexico and other countries really need that, people are suffering for these so called, "Presidents." Mexico and Calderon I wish you the best of the Luck! Si Se Puede!
