Election Day

Today is the election day in Brazil.
I couldn’t vote because I’m registered to vote in my hometown, so I had to present a justification for that.
I wouldn’t know who to vote for anyway.
We have many problems but the worst is not the government.
The worst problems we have, like corruption, have strong roots in our culture, due to the lack of consciousness of our people.
Unfortunately most people here wait for the government to give them what they need and, of course, they don’t get it. Those are people who are not aware of their rights and are not able to improve their lives by themselves. They are not able to focus on what they can make and create to improve things around. They only expect to be given what they need.
It’s a ridiculous country, with a powerful elite used to ‘defend’ their interests through corruption.
Those are problems no government can really solve, unless people change their minds.
That’s what I think.
