We are close to the elections and we can not but call to all for this moment so important.
Our country has instituted compulsory voting, and from the age of 16 already have voters. The territorial extent and multiplicity of problems and realities facing the country make this moment a vital event for future generations.
There was an English philosopher named Karl Popper, who very wisely directed it made no sense to sacrifice future generations in favor of this, as well as the reciprocal, that is, sacrificing the present generation towards future. This balance however is complex. What does this have to do with elections?
The awareness that we are an integrated tissue, a whole, not just socially but also with the natural resources with which we interact deeply. Ask everyone you know to vote, they do not annul their right to vote (even if it is required), for canceling the vote favors the bad politicians sometimes.
Are clear that there is no free lunch, that is, if something is given “grace”, someone is paying for it, which in turn return in some way, either with higher prices or taxes. So whenever the company will be paying all.
The Areco asked to observe with deep candidates, what their teams, with emphasis on the economy as it is this that allows the fiscal balance to occur, the strength of the currency is installed, that inflation is dispelled, the stability and security institutions is solid, for only then will generate business, jobs, competition, export and hence sustainable growth.
Investment in basic education and strong is essential because it will come a more cultured society, critical, conscious, more skilled jobs, respect, health and values. Do not forget to pay attention also on the issue of freedom. This is an almost utopian value, which has gained strength since the Enlightenment, inspired independence in the world and even shaped features that are in our flag, Order and Progress. Freedom of movement, freedom includes an increase of responsibility.
Will, in recent years, has increased the freedom of the people? It has increased the responsibility of the people? The vote of each is conscious, studied, not just a boost. The future of our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, last of all, depends on it.
