This cartoon from El Diario (10/20/2017) reflects the seriousness of the danger to lose our democracy.
Who would have even thought that this peril would come from the coca grower caudillo who became president of Bolivia, eleven years ago. Now, we can argue that all the turmoil that started back in 2003 until he became president in 2006 may have well been a devious plan to grasp Bolivian government.
Blooming corruption, increased narcotrafficking with higher and deadlier rates of violence across Bolivian society are the legacy of the populist demagogue political party … who relentlessly want to remain in power.
The egomaniac has absolute control of ALL State powers … and intends to remain as president …
$160 billion dollars wasted and a shrinking economy poses now more danger as he does not care and will continue to engage in loans from China, will continue to provide bonuses to pay for acceptance, will continue to slow down private investment, and so forth.
On top of that, narcotrafficking will continue to expand and undermine more our society, at all levels. He does not want to face trials on his corrupt and inept ways of governing, … and that makes him and his acolytes a real threat to our Democracy, he’ll do, literally, whatever to remain in power.
The world must prevent Bolivia to become the Somalia or the Venezuela of today!
We need to stop him from attempt to run again for the presidency, we need to make sure the voting is transparent, clean, so we can start rebuilding our Republic!
