Politics & Poverty

Politics & Poverty

Many politics in different countries have promised their people and don't accomplish most if not none of the things they decreed. Politics in countries where poverty rules mostly just look for their own welfare and take advantage of the peoples suffrage. They use the people's suffrage to their advantage and benefits. They pay young kids or young men to kill or to steal from people who they consider to be their enemy's for personal problems or motivations. The corruption that goes around in other countries have been caused by their government. People in their countries are seeking for the truth. Parents after seeing their child behind bars seek for the reality so true justice is done. Many cops are payed to put innocent lives in prison and the justice doesn't really exist. Politics knowing that poor people would do anything for money pay them to do the dirty job and then pay a cop to blame that one person who committed the crime he was payed for and be put in prison. Where poverty rules, justice doeskin really exist. Take a moment and think to yourself how lucky we are to live in a country where there is not as much corruption. Put yourself in those kids shoes who would do anything in order to get a few bucks in order to get a bite of food or to have a roof to live under. One of my goals is to help those families and kids who have nothing or no one to show them a way out. Where poverty rules justice doesn't exist. Let's make a difference to the few lives we can reach."Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe. -Frederick Douglass."

Don Omar ft. Tego Calderon - "Callejero" (2015)

"Callejero" is a song which is based on a person's life style in poverty who are forced to live their lives out on the streets and how the corruption in their government forces them to do cruel things in order to survive. Citizens of other countries become gangsters or drug dealers to bring bread to their tables or at least to have a roof to live under because the only thing politics do is lie and promise things they will never accomplish. The corruption that goes on in other countries is because their government have caused it.


Fact:

- Almost half the world — over 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day.

Don Omar ft. Tego Calderon - “Bandolero” (2007)

" Bandolero" is a song based on a bandits lifestyle where the only way to survive is working for the corrupted people in the government. Many might judge the bandits for their lifestyle but the people in the government who steal from the poor people is a person of honor. They put people who have actually done things right and tell the people the reality of their government in jell and the corrupted people in their government who steal with the suffrage of their people are not considered criminals.

Facts:

- The GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of the 41 Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (567 million people) is less than the wealth of the world’s 7 richest people combined.

Aventura - “Amor de Madre” (2002)

" Amor de Madre" bases on a mother's suffrage's and what she is willing to do in order to give her son a better after the father walked out of their lives and left them in poverty. This proves to humanity how a mother does many things for their children that men can't do. A mother is willing to give up her body to have a shelter and food to offer her son and sometimes they don't see those sacrifices the mother does for them and associate themselves with bad influences and kills the mother with a pain in her heart. Many of the corruption is not only by politics but also by cowards who walk out on their families lives and leave them with nothing.

Fact:

- Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.

Don Omar - Libertad (2014)

"Libertad" focuses on how someone can be locked being innocent and be blamed for something they had nothing to do. William Omar ( the main character in this song) grew up in a place where drugs and prostitution is most common. Many politics lie and steal from his people. People who grew up in those environment go to sleep every night wishing they had justice done and have the real freedom where they don't find poverty ruling their lives.

Fact:

- Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen.

Don Omar ft. Daddy Yankee, Yandel, Arcangel - “Yo Soy De Aqui” (2015)

"Yo Soy de Aqui" is a song where it helps people who grew up in places where poverty has ruled find hope. Many of the hispanic artist come from have a childhood full suffrages and become big, even though they are what they are now in days they never where they came from and who they are.

Fact:

- 1 billion children live in poverty (1 in 2 children in the world). 640 million live without adequate shelter, 400 million have no access to safe water, 270 million have no access to health services. 10.6 million died in 2003 before they reached the age of 5 (or roughly 29,000 children per day).

South Park Mexican - “Land Of The Lost” (1999)

"Land of the Lost" bases of poor families, where children grow up and follow their parents footsteps. Geniuses getting buried at an early age because they find no way out or don't know how to break free from the poverty. Instead they choose to sell and do drugs where they dig up the hole which they're buried in.

Fact:

-More than 80 percent of the world’s population lives in countries where income differentials are widening.

South Park Mexican - “Child Of The Ghetto” (1998)

"Child Of The Ghetto" explains how life for children whose parents were in the drug business before they even existed proves to us how blind humanity is nowadays. They start to kill at an early age and sell narcotics to make a living and bring food to their tables. Where poverty rules there is no right or wrong in order to survive.

Fact:

- The poorest 40 percent of the world’s population accounts for 5 percent of global income. The richest 20 percent accounts for three-quarters of world income.

Baby Rasta y Gringo - “Caminando en Fuego” (2013)

"Caminando en Fuego" bases on how growing up with poverty being their best and worst friend. Growing up with questions that have no answers and all of them growing up with the same limitation and the same suffrages. An orphan who doesn't know how they will end up and do anything to live a better life than the one that they grew up as kids.

Fact:

- According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. And they “die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed from the scrutiny and the conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death.”

Farruko ft. Arcangel - “Mi Vida No Va Cambiar” (2013)

"Mi Vida No Va Cambiar" is a song that makes a reflection on why the world keeps having all these social and cruel problems which only keep hurting people on a daily basis. After growing up in poverty they don't want to change their bad habits and are willing to die in the lifestyle they were offered as kids.

Fact:

- Around 27-28 percent of all children in developing countries are estimated to be underweight or stunted. The two regions that account for the bulk of the deficit are South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

Alex Zurdo - “Donde Estas” (2012)

"Donde Estas" bases on a kids suffrage after his family was broken into pieces and all he asked life is to return his dad but his father is no where to be found. Young men grow up to be like their father's and fear that they make the same mistake as their father's not knowing they did. The children grow up with a step-father instead of their father taking up his responsibilities. Politics are not the only one's to be blamed for the corruption but also those men who were never their for their kids and those kids with the absence and don't know how to deal with that pain and decide to kill, steal, fight, hang around the wrong crowd in order to feel part of something and not alone."Power and violence are opposites; where the one rules absolutely, the other is absent. Violence appears where power is in jeopardy, but left to its own course it ends in power's disappearance." - Hannah Arendt

Fact:

- If current trends continue, the Millennium Development Goals target of halving the proportion of underweight children will be missed by 30 million children, largely because of slow progress in Southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
