Luis, I think your text is good as it is, but Gian suggested some good changes too. I suggest just some minor changes:
Research, think, act ,change your country!
Brazil, a country in which politics *already became a sign of corruption, so much as to make its own population not believe in their own representatives. What
have we put ouselves into? What kind of future are we going to face? How did we end up like this?
The population is tired of it, tired, but still in a vegetative state. People complain from their houses, confortably in front of their computers, not even interested in making their country better, complaining just for the sake of it. I don't necessarily suggest heading to the streets and protesting (though that would be good if done peacefully). I do suggest on
using the best way there is to solve this country's problems, using the most powerful weapon the population has.... their votes.
That is the only thing politicians are afraid of, not getting elected. I'm not here to suggest a candidate or anything of the sort, instead I'm here to ask the population to vote consciously, to research, not just to be carried away just by false promises, or vote just to get rid of the obligation (of doing so). If you do so, we will never leave this vegetative, awful
, state of numbness and stagnation.
The politicians won't give you education or enough information for you to know enough, since they are not even interested in doing that. For them, it's better to have naive
voters than smart ones, so they can get easily elected. Research, think and act ,change your country!
job as a B
razilian, show Brasília(should I translate it to "Brazilia"?
) we are the ones that actually rule this country!
can be used with the simple past tense.
Accountability, naive voters, responsability, wider education, spread the wealth and power. These are words that can be used to enhance your text.http://econpapers.repec.org/paper/cprceprdp/6931.htmhttp://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accountability
