Peru today votes whether or not to fall into the abyss of communism

Of all the bad choices Peruvians can make today in their election, none is worse or even comes close to being as horrible as choosing communism. Don’t do it, Peru! Don’t ever, ever, ever choose communism.

Peru Facing Political Suicide as Country Heads to the Polls

Peru, the country that welcomed me after fleeing socialism, is now in a dilemma: vote for Keiko Fujimori, a candidate investigated for alleged money laundering, or vote for Pedro Castillo, a leftist candidate linked to communism and terrorism

Peru is on the brink of suicide but there is still time to avoid it.

Election weekend arrived in the midst of deafening uncertainty, Peruvian friends write me to ask if I have done my “nervous shopping” because “what is coming is not good at all.”

Peru, the country that welcomed me after fleeing socialism, is now in a dilemma: vote for Keiko Fujimori, a candidate investigated for alleged money laundering, or vote for Pedro Castillo, a leftist candidate linked to communism and terrorism.

There are those who bet on not voting or voting blank as a form of protest, a completely legitimate action. Yet this in case it will not bring anything good, especially given the country is on the brink of the abyss.

That a vote loses value in the middle of such an important election is not a good option. Every null vote is interpreted as “it doesn’t matter who wins” and that, dear Peruvian friends, in the not too distant future will take its toll.

Peruvians are tempted to vote for “something different,” the one who is in favor of Pedro Castillo believes that because he is a “humble” man and because he is a professor, he will surely do things right. The Peruvian who supports Castillo believes that if he becomes president he will solve all his problems with populist promises.

But history speaks for itself, socialism, communism and the left do not do anything for free. First, it promises to solve everyone’s life, offers handouts, corrodes institutions, and then just makes you so fragile and dependent that there is no way out of it. It happened in Cuba, it happens in Venezuela and now Peru seems to be the path it decides to take.

  1. The only rational way to approach an election is to simply vote for the lesser evil. In most cases, all candidates will have “issues,” the question is how many and how bad. I pray Peru avoids falling into the very well known Latrine black hole. There is simply no excuse for falling into it yet again.
