Democratic Socialist Dictator of Bolivia Evo Morales Steps Down

Recommended Posts

Wannabe-presidente-for-life Evo Morales was forced to say "no mas" after massive cheating in the last (illegal) election forced the military's hand in Bolivia.

 

Morales has been praised along with Democratic Socialist dictators Chavez/Maduro by Bernie Sanders as the models of the New American Dream.

 

Too bad BS, Why do you ALWAYS back tyrants? 

 

Congratulations Bolivia!

On Sunday, international monitors called for the election result to be annulled, saying they had found "clear manipulations" of the 20 October poll.

Mr Morales agreed with the findings and announced his intention to call fresh elections - after overhauling the country's election body.

But politicians - and the army and police chiefs - had urged him to quit.

Some of his allies were attacked earlier this week, and said their homes had been set alight.

In a televised address, Mr Morales said he would resign as president, and urged protesters to "stop attacking the brothers and sisters, stop burning and attacking"

The administration invested heavily in public works projects and social programmes to fight poverty. Since he came to office, extreme poverty dropped from 38% in 2006 to 17% in 2018.

Why do far-leftists always endorse dictators?

 

Far-right/far-left, not much different.

Morales did improve conditions for a lot of Bolivians, but he became more and more dictatorial. Bolivia has always had a tradition of presidents that refused to step down accorfing to the constitution.

This is not about Trump/

I am glad that Morales has stepped down without bloodshed.

Bolivia has had many dictators--most of them either wealthy mining moguls or puppets of US and foreign mining interests.

Before Morales, the Indians were shut out of running the country, and often treated like pesky wildlife. After Morales, they will have a voice.

There still has not been a single indigenous government representative in the Chilean government, and the Mapuches and Aymaras are about 10% of the population.

No surprise, the Democratic Socialist dictator wannabe Bernie Sanders has come out in full support of the ousted Democratic Socialist dictator of Bolivia. 

 

BS hysterically calls for the "support of Bolivia's democratic institutions," despite the fact that Morales was constitutionally prohibited from running for a 4th term. Because of the prohibition Morales  called for a referendum to change the constitution. That resolution failed. He ran anyway.

 

Then--despite the illegal run--Morales was facing defeat in a runoff, so he started rigging the ballots (and was caught.) That's why the military acted. Morales has no respect for the rule of law or the integrity of Bolivia’s democratic institutions.

 

Yet there is BS in full support of a democratic socialist dictator (again).

 

The man is insane!
