Javier Milei in his victory speech told his jubilant supporters gathered at the Hotel Libertador in central Buenos Aires…
“Today we turn the page on our history and return to the path that we should never have lost. Today brings an end to the model of the omni-present state, that only benefits some while the majority of Argentines suffer, today brings an end to this idea that the state is shared among politicians and their friends, today brings an end to this vision that the perpetrators are the victims and the victims are the perpetrators, today we retake the path that made this country great, today we embrace the ideas of libertarianism, the ideas of Alberdi.
This model of decadence has come to an end, there is no turning back, the results of this model are plain for all to see, from being the richest country in the world today we are ranked 130th, half of Argentines are poor and 10% are destitute. Stop this impoverishing model of the caste, today we embrace the libertarian model so as to return to being a global power.
Today begins the reconstruction of Argentina. We will embrace a model of liberty to become once again a world power.”
