I want your attention because you need my vote!

21 Jul

When I say 29 July, I recall some awesome memories. However, this year will be an awkward day, and I HATE the politicians for ruining it with the referendum for impeaching the president. I don’t know that much about politics, I may not speak accurate about it but I speak justified for the sake of this one right we have that politicians forget the first; let’s call it the “HELLo, I leave here!”-right.

Yes, HELLo dear politicians, I live here. I am young and confused, I don’t know what to vote on 29’th July, because you kind of ruined every good thing i thought of you (USL) and you don’t give a shit about making yourself look better in front of us (PDL). I can vote YES and say goodbye to Basescu, I can vote NO, and keep him there for some time.

As far as I feel now, If I vote YES, something I want to do actually, I feel I’m leaving my beloved Romania in the hands of some young leaders who, not knowing what do to with so much power, will take the worst advice possible from their “political parents” or start fighting over that power and tear democracy apart. I really fear that, recently.

I want Basescu out, he was no good, but he could have been worse. However, I am not convinced that what will come after him will be better. I want Basescu out, but I also want an alternative to USL, a fresh new one, I want to see people I believe in, people I can trust, people that discuss real politics, not just plagiarism bullshit or European Union self-made problems (problems which they wouldn’t have if they discussed real politics!!!)

I want that the politicians can understand this: If i vote YES, I’m saying goodbye Basescu, not Hello USL.

On the other hand, if I vote NO, and keep Basescu in place, he’s not going to be there long, because at the next proper elections people will want to see a change. Still, he has enough time, that under the pressure of UE, to make things worse for Romanian people.

If I refuse to go and vote or vote blank, considering the local habits, I think my vote will actually go to either yes or no, to whomever has more money involved there, and in the case i don’t go, others will vote for me and I DON’T have the right to complain about politics anymore.

I love my country, but with this vote I feel I’m rescuing a poor, sick and wounded animal from a master who keeps it strangled in a leash and taking him, feeding it to the starving wolves.

I told you already, Hello, I leave here. Now to translate it to you, corrupt, selfish, greedy politicians, HELL-NO, I don’t want you here!

PS: If you ask yourself why I wrote this post in English, it’s because you don’t deserve to talk or be talked to in such a beautiful language like Romanian, your lies and lack of common sense or decency outrage me, and I don’t want to poison our beautiful words by swearing at you.




Romania- brief description about protests *At least we have a voice…

16 Jan

Romania is one of a kind….so twisted, so strange, so attractive and so repulsive at the same time…I’m not sure what feelings I have for my country, I’m still discovering it and these are my latest thoughts on it’s people. ROMANIANS do have a voice. They are all a bunch of drama queens who suffer in silence for a long time and make a huge scandal once in a while. I’m not sure if you know what’s happening here at his moment, but today was the 4th day of protests downtown and I couldn’t miss it. I wanted to go there since the first day but I was gone to Buzau, my home town.

I went to the University for 2 hours, unfortunately I left just before the big crowd of students arrived…[i didn’t knew they were supposed to come :)]

On my way, I heard a lot of people discussing about the events in the following manner: “I’d go there just to get in a fight!!!”- this is the quote of a young man and I don’t want to comment it. When I arrived I listened to the people shouting louder and louder and one of their favorites was “Down with Basescu!!!” – an old man passing by replied in a softer voice, mumbling  – “..yell until you slim down..”

People were scattered here and there and the police were standing between the larger groups, attentively observing the atmosphere. Those who shouted louder were in the front, and there were a few people in the back who were trying to provoke others to shout as well. A few girls were striking a pose for a photographer…

One particular event caught my attention: I was passing by a group of young men [no more than 10] who, while passing near the police started yelling “GIVE US LEGAL DRUGS!!YEYYYYYYYY!!!”[my reaction: you don’t say…9gaggers know]// they were instantly taken to a side and questioned. I followed them and I heard that it was the second time the police took their data…now that was sooo “unexpected” :))

Overall, I’d say the television amplifies all the conflicts more than they should… A few friends advised me not to go there, to be careful, to be quiet etc.. Nothing happened to me people!! chill!! As far as I noticed, the guards took only those who were too loud for the crowd, who stood out and started being violent… maybe i chose the wrong time to be there and the “party” didn’t start yet but the violence i expected to find wasn’t there… people were quiet, except a handful of guys who were yelling louder – i personally suspect them to be football supporters 🙂

This post is written just to give you a hint, as objective as possible, about the atmosphere downtown. I don’t want to judge them, I just told you what I saw…
