Does your country enacts its officials to persecute “enemies of the state”? Mine does.

Does your country allow elected presidents  that have confessed to assassinations, to take office? Mine does.

Does your country asks state employees to “donate” part of their wages to the official party? Mine does.

Does your country round up people from rural and urban sides alike (while threatening to retrieve welfare benefits if they refuse) to “show support” for the administration? Mine does.

Does your country allow the First Lady to divorce from the president, just so that she can run for the Presidency herself? Mine does.

Does your country play musical chairs with its population?

Does your country allow military and police officers to search citizens without probable cause?

Does your country`s armed forces open fire on civilians, 16 years after peace agreements were signed? Mine does.

Whaterver the question, sadly, I think you’ve guessed the answer…
