On Mil para Siempres, Camilo Andrés writes  [es] about his deception with the results of presidential election in Colombia:
I woke up today with that post election mess many of us have today, although we faithfully believed in our convictions and voted as we thought would be best for the country, once again, my vote lost. And even though yesterday there were many saying on Twitter: “I've never voted for the winner on a presidential election. I think I've voted correctly then” yes, it is OK to be happy with your vote. But, up to where?
And then he describes sarcastically what he believes is the opinion of the “Uribist” supporters, alluding to some questionings to former president Uribe and candidate Zuluaga:
… we are going unmask Juan Manuel [Santos], we are finishing this Havana farce that, although it has achieved UNPRECEDENT understandigns in three out of five negotiation points at the PEACE table. It doesn't matter… we are going to kill ourselves against the damned guerrillas, and by ourselves I mean the children of poor people, because the upper classes won't, they deserve more safety in the cities and if we get there, notaries for everybody.
