46. VIVA Democracy!!!
You are correct that The US and South America are very different.
For one thing,
they have Transparent, Fair, Verifiable Elections monitored by International agencies.
We don't have that here,
and neither Political party is interested in giving that to us.
So, we have a lot of work to do.

The Populist Reforms sweeping across Latin America gives me hope for The World!
They have accomplished near bloodless revolutions!
They have successfully taken their countries back from the Oligarchs and predatory Global Corporations,
including the IMF!

"The worst enemy of humanity is U.S. capitalism. That is what provokes uprisings like our own, a rebellion against a system, against a neoliberal model, which is the representation of a savage capitalism. If the entire world doesn't acknowledge this reality, that nation states are not providing even minimally for health, education and nourishment, then each day the most fundamental human rights are being violated."
----Bolivian Reform President Evo Morales

FDR said much the same thing in 1944 with his Economic Bill of Rights.
Unfortunately, FDR and THAT Democratic Party are long dead.
Do you believe that the old Democratic Party of FDR/LBJ can be resurrected?
I hope so!
I would be willing to work for that!

Our neighbors to The South have given us the Blue Print for CHANGE.
It CAN happen here!

VIVA Democracy!
I pray we get some here soon.

You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their excuses.
