45 had powerful help from outside the country, too. It just wasn’t enough. I thank our Founding Fathers for the system of governance that they designed. They were prescient enough to know that it could happen.
Good analysis, Mark, in the comparisons and parallels of the 2019 election in Bolivia and the 2020 in the US.
It’s good seeing the Morales ally, Luis Arce, win the presidency in the recent election there, by more than 26 percentage points. And good seeing Trump lost here.
