Bolivian Thoughts opinion: Pitiful evo continues to waste public funding for his illegitimate and illegal campaign.
He even changed the date for the election date as he intends to capture the votes of Bolivians who live in Argentina, while he closed that option for those Bolivians living in the USA.
After 14 years of absolute control of ALL State powers, wasting over $180 billion dollars, his incompetent, populist, demagogue government, is now afraid of the trials that he and his acolytes would have to face after they end their mandate this year. Over 700 Bolivians fled the country due to political persecution, Bolivian Democracy is seriously under peril!
If we fail to stop him to run for the October elections … chances are that we will be following the insane path of Maduro and Ortega, as they like evo do not want to abandon the government of their countries.
