I give it 2 days after Biden’s inauguration before he starts his campaign against the Socialist Evo Morales. " I always beat the socialist," Maduro is next on list

I’d like to see Evo at the United Nations in some top-flite capacity for the climate. He was a world leader in this in 2009 - we need him more than ever.

World is running out of time on climate, experts warn

We need some Bolivians to immigrate to the US, and Teach their North American neighbors how to run an election and how to run a democracy. I am very glad for the changes that are going on there, but I fear US involvement soon, and not in a good way.

Until we figure some way to bring the 75 million people to a peoples movement, that voted for Trump, even though a nice dream,that my Progressive friend, will remain a pipe dream.

We’ll be lucky if we can slow the damage a little much less resolve something. Gore Vidal said once he put it down to economics, the only thing that can save America from their leaders is a total economic collapse.

You really have to laugh when ‘predatory/colonizing capitalism’ struts around claiming the right to violently collude to overthrow 'socialism´ - particularly given the greedy colonizers in Bolivia who think their centuries long legacy of genocide, manipulation, rape of resources, enslavement of the original inhabitants - not to mention anyone they dislike, ecological damages and the list goes on. Literally outlining THE MOST REGRESSIVE model (which also promises fascism) earns them something other than a conviction in the International Court. These are some sick, sick societal sectors addicted to material rape and the personality cults they foist on those they abuse.
Impoverishing every aspect of living beings is the ONLY WAY these incompetent knuckle draggers can stay in power.

Yeah - corporations made sure that Drumph brought the dead Bolt and pompous one back to make sure covert operations were kept warm. Those two need to be fully investigated … of course along with the majority of professional lobbyists and career politicians

TERM LIMITS!
REVERSE CITIZENS UNITED and that entire legacy - no more dark money

My fervent wish is that we can somehow slow the damage, but do not forget the Biden/Harris ticket is not a progressive ticket.

Interesting contrast in popular democracy between Bolivia and the US.

David and Goliath.

There is no way Biden/Harris can allow the Bolivians to get away with this.

Biden needs to answer directly as to where he stands on this. He has been deliberately silent

and that is because he is not about to make an endorsement.

Elon Musk wants more money and Biden/Harris does too.

Thanks to President Arce, Evo Morales is able to return to his homeland. I fear this example of true democracy will not set well with TPTB in USA. I heard the sour sounds of Flournoy or Rice being pushed forward for Cabinet posts, such as Secretary of State. That is the Democratic Party at its finest and exactly what most of us expected. We seem to be trapped in a Hall of Mirrors/Horrors.
