Evo Is Out

I am very concerned about what appears to be a coup in Bolivia, where the military, after weeks of political unrest, intervened to remove President Evo Morales. The U.S. must call for an end to violence and support Bolivia’s democratic institutions.

No, Bernie, just no. Evo Morales had turned into a typical tin-pot Latin American dictator. Changing the Constitution for the goobizillionth time to stay in power is not “a democratic institution.” How would we feel if Trump kept changing the US Constitution to make it possible to have several more terms in office? Would we think that’s democracy in action? Obviously not.

Newsflash: Hispanic people are as human as we are and deserve real democracy just like we do.
