    The one country in South America that has shown real democracy is Paraguay, just because she impeached a left wing crook you and the frightened “left wing” presidents of neighbouring states get your knickers in a twist.

    Kretina and Co. are scared that they will be next on the impeachment list, but in Argentina it will not happen YET, because the Krooks have a majority in both houses, but as money gets scarce for the provinces more and more deputies and senators will cross the aisle and then we'll see how Kretina and Boludo get on facing impeachment.
