The electoral lists are like a transparent Easter Egg. There’s no surprise. Dell’Utri, Cuffaro, Carra, Crisafulli have already been elected, together with all the others. They will become our employees at 25,000 euro a month even Fassino (for the fourth time), his wife (for the fifth time), D’Alema, the lawyers and the secretariat of the psycho dwarf. The Lower and the Upper houses are full. Sold out.
Parliament is the new brothel of the Italians. The 2006 Calderoli/psycho-dwarf piggish electoral law brought in closed lists. The Merlin lists. It took away from the citizens the possibility to choose their own candidate. Deputies and Senators are picked up from the streets of Italy by the party secretaries. By now they are political figures between pimps and ponces.
Your vote is of no use. The game has already been played. Don’t you believe that? Before the elections, I will publish the composition of the Lower House and of the Upper House, name by name, “prescritto” by “prescritto”, convict by convict. After the elections, check who has been elected. If my forecasts are correct it means you have been taken for a ride.
There’s another thing I can’t stomach. That the mayors and the presidents of the Regions can resign so that they can be candidates in the national elections. The citizens of their towns and regions voted them in for a 5 year term of office. They were employed to do a specific job. They don’t give a toss about their employees. About their town, their region. Formigoni resigns as President of Lombardy to be Minister of Foreign Affairs. Topo Gigio Veltroni resigns as Mayor of Rome to become Party Secretary. But don’t you feel you have been taken for a ride? The money for the regional and local election campaigns in Lombardy and Rome, the citizens’ time, new elections, new local cabinet members. These folk change position each time they can earn more. They are political prostitutes.
Not voting is the only choice left to you. Don’t give legitimacy to an unconstitutional electoral law. Explain to those who believe they are exercising their rights on 13 April that they are victims of an enchantment. Anyone who votes becomes an accomplice, even if they don’t know it.

I live abroad but I try to follow as much as I can the political debate of my native country. The suggestion made by Beppe is a bit pointless as it lack of a clear strategic objective. Ok nobody votes and then? What will it change?
I think we have to realise and accept that major changes do not happen overnight. It is utterly unrealistic to expect a modern day Italian renaissance after next elections. We are part of an evolution process that has started but will take years, and many elections, to be completed. It is our job now to direct the evolution toward the right direction, and denying ourselves the right to vote is no direction.
The question is: who shall we vote?
This is a million dollar question and ultimately everybody is free to vote whoever he or she wants. However, what we should NOT vote for those politicians that are being investigated, have been sentenced or have been involved in criminal cases.
Furthermore, we should not vote for those politicians that have been in power already and have not shown good leadership.
This seems so plain simple, but in Italy the same politician can be elected over and over again. Look at Andreotti or Berlusconi. How can a politician loose the elections and win them again a few years later?
But then of course we have to choose someone, so we have to set criteria.
Maybe we should choose a honest politician… Does he or she exist? We do not know that, but at least there are politicians that have not been investigated yet, and that is a good starting point. It is also a very strong message to all politicians and parties. Italians want honest politicians, and in time this will become a mandatory requirement. Like in all western democracies...
So maybe this time we will have to vote for Di Pietro…
I am sure someone will say that he cannot even talk properly but hey you cannot have everything!
Italians do your bit for your country! Vote whoever you want but do NOT vote for the corrupt! Do not vote for the inept! Do not choose the past over the future. Be brave and take the dive. It cannot be worse than now!
