Re: Jair Bolsonaro declared Brazil's next president

You should come and spend some time in Europe, and follow a course on socialism. You might learn a few new things...

You should come and spend some time in Europe, and follow a course on socialism. You might learn a few new things... The first thing might be that Europe's ...
