Spain’s commonsensical political options in the next elections

Published in Expansión

Dear reader,

The upcoming Spanish general elections to be held next Sunday will have all to do with the attitude the future government will have towards the Catalonian separatists who attempted a true coup d’Etat in the illegal referendum that took place on October 1st 2017 (and who are currently in prison and under trial, except a few). Let’s remember that in 1978 the Spanish democratic Constitution was freely approved by all Spaniards in a national referendum (including an overwhelming 90.5% of Catalonians who voted yes) and the Constitution clearly defends the unity of the nation and does not allow local referendums because the sovereignty of Spain relies on all its citizens and not on just a few. Such unequivocal legal background and the episodes of violence that took place against the police when it tried to avoid the attempted referendum following a Supreme Court order was not covered at all by the international media, which gave an extremely biased view of what was happening.
Going back to the next general elections, we have on the one hand the Socialist Party led by the unscrupulous radical leftist current PM Sanchez, who has been supported by the communist Bolivarian party Podemos (linked to Venezuela’s Maduro regime) and the Catalonian and Basque separatists, including the former supporters of Basque Marxist terrorist group ETA (which killed nearly 900 men, women and children in a 40 year reign of terror).
On the other hand we have three different parties from the right to the center-left part of the political spectrum (Vox, PP and Ciudadanos). Only these clearly defend the Spanish Constitution and the application of the law to the separatists currently under trial.
Therefore, beyond the particular political options, what is at stake in these elections is whether the next Spanish government will defend the decency, the rule of law and the very existence of Spain as a nation or whether it will yield to the separatists, reward anarchy, discredit the Supreme Court and promote the eventual breakup of Spain after what history has shown would not be a peaceful process. Hopefully the Socialists will lose.
This article will be the last devoted to these elections and, therefore, the last to be published only in its original Spanish version instead of in the usual bilingual mode. Thanks to all my non-Spanish speaking readers for their patience in the last four posts.
