Well of the 29 USA presidents that served in the military or militias I can only name 3 that were worth a damn. George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, and JFK. 3/29 is a pretty damn bad average.
I think the broader point is that the other 26 did not transform the States into a fascist dictatorship.
@collint0101 Don't feed him. He is clearly being off-topic and trying to spread his usual gospel.
No, but the United States have never been through a dictatorship. It's a different country, with different values. Brazil has already been through it, and not long ago either, meaning many of the people responsible for it are still around. Bolsonaro himself has defended the dictatorship on multiple occasions. In any case, electing a military general as vice-president, in this day and age... do you not find that notion absurdly obsolete, too?
I'm brazilian too. Well, it's either him or Haddad. And Haddad means Lula again...
Lula was a great president, Brazil had its best years in ages when he was there. I'm not defending him from everything else, of course. He's corrupt as fuck and so is his party, I really wish it didn't have to come down to this, I wish we had Ciro Gomes in the running. But as it is, unfortunately I have to pick the side of corruption because the other choice is the side of hatred.
