Why I'm Against the Impeachment of Dilma Rousseff

First off, I'd like to lay bare that I voted for Dilma and I've regretted it. I now feel betrayed and misled by a candidate who, once re-elected, did exactly the opposite of what she promised during elections. I would never vote for Aecio Neves, who I consider to be worse in absolutely every aspect when compared with Dilma, but if the elections were today, and knowing now the direction the Dilma government would eventually steer us, I would have annulled my vote in the second round. The option to change my vote, however, just doesn't exist, history doesn't move backward.

I consider the second Dilma government to be awful -- wrong on economic measures, wrong on policy and indefensible in almost all other aspects. However, I am radically against the impeachment of the president for a number of reasons that I will do my best to explain below.
