    think of a country where corrupt politicians assume power again in our country, the theft is not political cosiderado a heinous crime, so they can be free to continue the looting. Health is very weak, and hospitals without equipment with people lying on the floor for lack of space. The schools are under churches, as in Admiral Tamandaré Paraná-Brazil. The teacher receives very little, having affairs to reduce their salary, being politicians, super bill, further robbing the public coffers. In Brazil, there are politicians who express religious in favor of a "gay cure" and propose such a PEC-37, empowering churches to intervene in the decisions of state and federation, almost like Feudalism and the Dark Ages. In short, all the infrastructure that will be in the corner, is not reflected in society. The Mane Garrincha National Stadium, in Brasiíia, has a capacity of 50,000 people, and in the regional games, barely 3000 people show up. In all stadiums for the World Cup were used public resources that could be better applied. The amount spent on a stadium could be built 3 space stations. The BRAZIL COPA DO NOT WANT, WANT HEALTH, EDUCATION, TRANSPORT AND DECENT CHEAP TAX REDUCTION, AND THAT ALL THESE CORRUPT THE DAMNED "monthly allowance" BE PUNISHED AND FWD

WANT TO STOP CORRUPTION, WANT SCHOOLS, HOSPITAL, WANT DECENT TRANSPORTATION...WE WANT OUR MONEY INVESTED IN OUR COUNTRY AND NOT OUT OF THE COUNTRY...WANT PEOPLE HAVE DECENT PUBLIC HEALTH, AND NOT WOMEN HAVING CHILDREN ON THE FLOOR OF HOSPITALS..
