This is not really news to anyone here in Spain. Every day we see more surfacing of past corruption and new cases of it. EVERY political party has
been implicated in what are estimated to be a combined total reaching the billions of Euros across the whole country of stolen public money.
I can not express in words the sentiment Spaniards have right now. It is like being in a dream. EVERYONE has stolen and partakes of corruption here.
It goes down to every city and town administration almost.
Even here in my small northern city, there isnt a single building contract that was awarded if a small envelope was not presented along with the
project. We all know it. There is NO denying it. NO WAY. We all have stories of seeing it done, talking with people who did it about doing it, and
people in power talking about it candidly.
Bribes, extortion, black mail, you name it, Spanish politics did it. Even the royal family is involved....EVERYONE, and its well documented too. Every
day there are new scandals emerging that we dont know the horns from the tail on it.
I will put it this way,
Spanish politicians are the same as a Mexican Highway patrol man ...you just assume the corruption and pull your money out of your wallet instead of
your ID.....It is like the sky being up and water being wet. It is just a given.
Thoroughly corrupt through and through.
I am ashamed of all this. I would not mention I am a Spaniard abroad. This is a disgrace to Spain. We look like crooks and thieves to the world. All
because of greed.
The worst part is that NOTHING will come of it. It is also a well known fact that NO ONE has to give anything back, and few even see prison. When they
do they do a year or two in very comfortable conditions. Then they are out and still have the MILLIONS they stole.

This once great country is a cesspool of progressive liars and crooks. It is all BS and they are just common thieves with the illusion of defending
the common man. People are literally going hungry and going through VERY hard times....our leaders here cut EVERY drop from the public faucet that
should be open full force in these times, while getting drunk like it was a freaking orgy....
We are SOO F-ing poor now....we were the 8th world power....now? We are Europe´s ass again....
