Persuasive Essay The sad reality of our Honduras, a country with extensive coasts and beaches bordered by two huge Atlantic and Pacific oceans respectively, vast valleys surrounded by rugged mountains covered with lush vegetation among which we have pines and leaf or colored wood, and that in turn in those mountains are born abundant rivers, streams and creeks that run through our territory to go to flow into the abovementioned oceans, in general we can proclaim that we are a country with immense natural wealth but with a bad distribution because it is concentrated in a few hands and everything as product of the severe epidemic attacking the Honduran people, I refer to the corruption and rot that corrodes the structures of our society. All the countries that make up this planet without exception, logically some more than others we suffer from one of the cruelest cancers that cause death, pain, poverty, hunger and lack of health, our beloved Honduras located in the Latin American Continent and that unfortunately we are or we are included in the third world countries where development is still does not arrive, but if we are victims of this terrible cancer that has plunged into the deepest hole of underdevelopment. The terrible cancer to which I refer and which is causing us enormous damage and delays in the arrival of the development to which we inhabit these countries of the third world, is nothing less than the Corruption of those who govern and they hold decision-making positions in the State. This is a generalized evil that afflicts the public administration, to the private enterprise and civil society organizations and even religious organizations; as long as we do not eradicate or at least decrease the situation will continue to worsen for us as community. Let us observe how this scourge affects us, while the corrupt steal the funds that are collected from the taxes we all pay the inhabitants of the country and that therefore we are in the obligation to monitor and demand the correct use, we must be auditors and watchdogs to that they are not diverted into the hands of the corrupt but are actually used to meet the needs of the majority. By stealing public funds, the corrupt take away our access to a good Health System, that we can attend public hospitals and be well cared for, that we are provided with the medicines and all necessary, besides that we have a quality and warm attention, this implies that the staff working in these public attention centers are aware of how to provide the service to the user who has already paid for it by paying their taxes. By stealing public funds, the corrupt take away the opportunity to access a quality Education System, where the youth have the opportunity to enter the public education system but of quality, however as the corrupt steal that right from us, our parents are forced to send us to educational centers private having to pay amounts of money and that with the low salaries that they earn make it difficult for them to meet these commitments, and that consequently limit us in other aspects, they enroll us in private institutions not for luxury but forced by the deficient educational system offered by the State, and in its desire to ensure that teens or children get a good learning, they sacrificed and because it may be the only inheritance they left us. By stealing public funds, the corrupt take away our opportunity to have an effective Citizen Security System, since these politicians or representatives of power groups do not care what happens to the people because they are surrounded by many paid guards by the same State with our taxes, however the people or we who are part of that people have to circulate around the streets exposed to all the threats and dangers of crime. By stealing public funds, the corrupt take away our access to a Decent employment, which is difficult to access due to the poor education system, this limits our ability to make the best use of our resources, that we earn fair wages that allow us to lead a quality life and fulfill the commitments and demands to educate us, to prepare ourselves in all fields of life. By stealing public funds, the corrupt take away our opportunity to access the existing Retirement and Pension Systems or strengthen them for when retirement age arrives and we can no longer work, that is to say, to enjoy our old age in a dignified environment after long years of work and contribute our competition to the development of our society. Rather, let us remember the disarray committed against the Honduran Institute of Social Security IHSS, this is only a small example of how the administration has been handled public in Honduras. By stealing public funds, the corrupt take away our access to obtain decent housing, with the current system the young people have little chance of getting a house, and that in some moment we become the owners of our house equipped with the basic services and consequently form our heritage. By stealing public funds, the corrupt take away our opportunity for our Honduras to build better roads, ports and airports, which would have the effect that producers transport or carry their crops to markets where they will distribute them or execute transformation processes to reach the final national consumer or for export, with more ease and cost public funds. By stealing public funds, the corrupt deny us the right to have access to a credible, reliable and impartial judicial system where the application of justice is equal for all, that there are no privileges for the power groups. Unfortunately the concept that we Hondurans have is that the justice only bites the weak, it only reaches the poor to the humble and not to those who have power and money, this situation of insecurity. The existing legal system in the country prevents or makes foreign investment to Honduras because no foreign investor in his right mind would will risk investing its capital in a State that does not have a Reliable justice, which is rather driven by political interests and economic. Magistrates, judges and civil servants are appointed not because of capacity, suitability or honesty but rather because of the camaraderie or political commitment, this brings our judicial system is corrupt and not very credible. Hondurans have lost hope and credibility in the parties traditional politicians because they seek access to public office only seek to satisfy their insatiable and excessive interests, without care about those they supposedly represent, that is, the people in general, is for this reason the disinterest and enormous abstentions in the electoral processes. However, I believe that we have sought the wrong path because with this passivity that the Honduran people act is only leaving the path free the corrupt, that's why the young people who are the future of this country we must promote that honest sensitive people are the ones access to power, but for that we have to prepare ourselves and become thinking and critical of the stupidities that politicians offer us in their electoral campaigns, of otherwise they will continue to deceive us and laugh at us, but the most. It is unfortunate that unscrupulous people will continue to rule over us that there only purpose is to raid the public coffers, in other words, to steal taxes that would serve to cover the above mentioned needs. In general, corruption is the cancer that we must fight for be extinguished and that the corrupt be punished with the full weight of law, and in this way diminish it until arriving at the extermination, that will be when all the citizens of beloved Honduras will be united, we claim and assert our rights, that we demand respect of the law and the fair and even application for all without privileges for anyone.
