As sad as any death is, the truth is that today died (of heart failure) the man responsible for most of the calamities suffered in Argentina, responsible for the hunger of millions and death of thousands, responsible of official lax laws against criminals, allowing even murderers and rapists to walk out the police department in front of the victim’s family . Thanks to him, Argentina has become a paradise for criminals and welfare leaches, and a nightmare for law abiding citizens that can’t afford their own personal army and must pay exorbitant taxes on everything. Authoritarian, violent leftist, even Peron disliked the Montoneros and what they represented. Mr. Kirchner was the one actually running the country in spite of his wife being in office and Ms. Kirchner has shallow chances of staying in power after next years presidential election. This opens the possibilities of more serious presidential alternatives, and we just might avoid sinking further into a replica of what Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela is today.
He will not be missed, and only a hypocrite would say otherwise.
