Oh, come on, saying that Argentina has more freedom that the US has nothing to do with supporting the Kirchners. I hate the Kirchners, I think they are ruining this country, but I have to agree with Pericles, this country has a lot more freedom than the US (yes, I am an American). We are not the only ones that think this, that is one of the top reasons why Buenos Aires is so full of foreigners. That doesn't translate to being anti-US, or pro-Kirchner, that is a general feeling. That freedom is often abused by the way, and I often find myself wishing there was more serious law enforcement, but nonetheless, you have a lot of freedoms here, and when you cross the line here, that can be often be solved with 20 pesos instead of a 3 prison sentence here. Again, not a good thing, but that translates to freedom.gouchobob said:You appear to be (based on your posting) a big supporter of the Kirchners.
This I don't get, perhaps you could explain what you see in them.
As for the article, I think most expats in Argentina have to find it disturbing. A lot of people in this forum are here illegally, or barely legal (coming in and out every 3 months and working in Buenos Aires or having a business is illegal with a tourist entry stamp), and if they are willing to break immigration law for pleasure and to enjoy the freedoms of Argentina, it would be hypocritical to not have the heart the empathize with those who are willing to break US immigration law to feed their families, or give them a better future.
