Sin Despeinarse

Dicen los entendidos en política que Evo va a ganar “sin despeinarse” en octubre 2014.¿ Como será no? Porque yo veo a mi pueblo totalmente harto de que no se despeine, jeje. Veamos cómo en nueve años no se ha despeinado.

¿Te acuerdas cuando llegó al poder por primera vez? No quería oposición y, como ahora sabemos, no se despeinó para ordenar las matanzas del Hotel Américas, del Porvenir, de Caranavi, etc. Y los muertos ahí, en sus primeros seis años, pasaron los 130. Dijo que “Un muerto en mi gobierno y me voy” Pero tampoco se despeinó por ese número de muertos y se quedó nomás.

¿Te acuerdas cuando dijo que los masistas eran casi dioses y que no tenían corrupción? Después de tantos negociados, en los que están involucrados Evo, Linera, Juan Camión, digo, Juan Ramón, los Arce, Villegas y toda su plana mayor, ni se ha despeinado para darnos una explicación, y mucho menos pedir la renuncia de sus ministros.

¿Te acuerdas cuando te dijo que “Evo no es ambicioso, no quiere quedarse en el poder y renuncia a la re reelección? Ni se despeinó para engañarte, comprarse los poderes, y lanzarse otra vez de candidato delincuente por incumplir la Constitución.

¿Te acuerdas cuando, sin despeinarse, llamó “pollos” a los periodistas y se negó a ser entrevistado y mandó a sus movimientos sociales a pegar y casi matar periodistas?

¿Te acuerdas cuando, sin despeinarse, sus esbirros, digo, sus ministros, ordenaron que Soza negara toda justicia a miles de ciudadanos bolivianos y crearan el ABUSO PENAL DEL ENEMIGO, torturando con miles de juicios a cualquiera que se les cantaran las canicas?

¿Te acuerdas cuando te prohibió decir que los culpables son culpables, y te obligó a pensar que NO debes denunciar a sus corruptos, a sus delincuentes, porque sino te espera a ti también, la tortura judicial?

¿Te acuerdas cuando, sin despeinarse, te impuso pagos de impuestos tan altos, que ahora trabajas para el gobierno, sea en pega pasanaku, o sea pagando la enorme cantidad de nuevos impuestos?

¿Te acuerdas cuando sin despeinarse, te acusó de “no cuidarte” y que por culpa de los ciudadanos ha subido el crimen y el narcotráfico en Bolivia?

Este rosario de cosas que hace el evito sin despeinarse, son las cosas que hoy me tomo la libertad de recordarte, para que comiences a acordarte quién se debe despeinar y quien no. Es hora de exigir la unidad de la oposición. Es hora de dejar la tibieza.

¿Quieres un presidente que se ocupe de administrar, y al hacer eso, se despeine? Yo también. Asi que Samuel, la pelota está en tu cancha. Queremos que te unas a un verdadero líder que tenga historia de llevarnos por buen camino. Queremos que busques a Fernando Vargas. Para que juntos, le muestren a Evo, cómo se trabaja por un país, y veamos, por fin, cómo se despeina el jugador de fútbol, digo, el presidente.

Without disheveling his hair

Well-versed people in politics say that Evo will win in October 2014 “without disheveling his hair”. How would it be, right? Because I see my people completely fed up of his not-disheveling, hehe. Let’s see how he hasn’t disheveled his hair in nine years.

Do you remember when he got to office for the first time? He didn’t want opposition and, as we know now, he didn’t dishevel when ordering the killings in Hotel Américas, in Porvenir, in Caranavi, etc. And those who died there, in his firs six-year term, were more than 130. He said “One dead man under my administration and I’ll leave”. But he didn’t dishevel for that toll and he just stayed in office.

Do you remember when he said the masistas (N.T.: the partisans of MAS, the socialist party) were almost gods and had no corruption at all? After so many shabby deals, which involve Evo, Linera, Juan Camión, I mean, Juan Ramón, the Arce, Villegas and all the top brass, he hasn’t even disheveled to give us an explanation, and even less to ask for the resignation of his ministers.

Do you remember when he said “Evo is not ambitious, he doesn’t want to stay in power and declines the possibility of the re-reelection”? He didn’t dishevel to treat you, buy himself the branches of the government, and announce himself as an outlaw candidate against Constitution.

Do you remember when, without disheveling his hair, he named the journalists as “chicken” and refused to be interviewed and send his social movements to beat up and almost kill journalists?

Do you remember when, without disheveling, his thugs –I mean, his ministers- gave the order to Soza to deny all Justice to thousands of Bolivian citizens, creating the PENAL ABUSE OF THE ENEMY, torturing with thousands of trials to anyone who they feel like it?

Do you remember when he forbade saying that guilty men are guilty, and made you think you shall NOT report his corrupt officers, his delinquents, because if not you’d be under judicial torture yourself?

Do you remember when, without disheveling, he imposed taxes so high that now you work for the government, whether in pasanaku work (N.T.: a saving system, with the exchange of labor within a social circle), whether paying a great deal of new taxes?

Do you remember when, without disheveling, he accused you of “not taking care of yourself” and said the rise in crime and drug traffic in Bolivia was due to the citizens?

This rosary of things Evito does without disheveling his hair is the kind of things I feel free to remind you today, so you can start remembering who should be disheveled and who shouldn’t. It’s time to demand unity in the opposition. It’s time to leave lukewarmness.

Do you want a President who takes care of administration and, in the process, gets disheveled? Me, too. So Samuel, the ball is on your side of the field. We want you to join a true leader who has a background to take us on the good road. We want you to look for Fernando Vargas. So you can, together, show Evo how to work for a country and we’d be able t see at last how a soccer player, I mean the President, dishevels his hair.
