This is a bluff (financial stunt), your pick.

These people are worsening our financial crisis for many reasons (and each and every one of them, favors them in many ways).

The majority of the people voted for them to create the crisis, so be it.

Life's unfair for all those who didn't vote for these people, but...(c'est la vie).

Are you familiar with the Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) or the Mexican PRI? It seems like the PPD is following their playbook.

I just can't help but compare the PRI to the PPD. It's almost like the same exact story.

PRI, Mexico's one party dictatorship for decades.

Can you expand?

Interesting comparison which I'm not that familiar.

It claims to be the party of the people, the working class in particular but in reality their sole goal is the remain in power forever and to create economic and political conditions that they can "use" to get voters to vote for them over and over.

The difference in PR is that the power of the PPD was broken in 1968 ... marking the start of the party's long decline however the mentality within the party still exists (ie: bankrupt PR and cause economic turmoil with their policies).

Extremely interesting.

Will study the PRI and the PSOE from that angle and compare it with the PDP's history.

Thanks for the input, if you can share anything more, will appreciate it greatly!

Love coming to TOPIX and use it to expand my knowledge!

Just like the Democrats. PPD = PRI + Spanish Socialist Party + the national Democratic Party.

Another feature common to both the PPD and the PRI is corruption and mismanagement (or is it incompetence?).

Totalitarism (brought on by perpetuating power) brings corruption and mismanagement.
