  1. Nowadays, we live in a society where politicians are always lying. Do they always tell the truth? What would happen if we didn't vote for them? When you use the expresion it won't wash you mean an idea is unconvincing and won't work.

    To begin, I'm going to talk a bit about some politicians from our country who have committed tax fraud. One of the most popular scammer is Luis Bárcenas, who belonged to PP political party. He was charged by El Caso Gürtel and El Caso Bárcenas. Another famous scammer was Rodrigo Rato who belonged to PP political party. He spent four years in jail for a continuing felony misappropriation. José Antonio Griñán Martínez defrauded too. He was acussed of the false ERE. These are some of the hundreds of politicians who have defrauded in our country.

    On the day that elections are held, each political party has an electoral plan for its government. Most electoral plans won't wash with the population, but they should choose the one that fits best to the majority of them. There are a big number of candidates for each political party and they give rallies, explaining us what they would do if they won the election. Most times they don't accomplish what they say.

    From my point of view, we shouldn't vote for them because many people in their political parties have defrauded and they are still free. Politics is something that has greatly damaged the image of our country because of the corruption.
