    This strikes me as desperate lies. Have there actually been any terrorist incidents attributed to, let alone claimed by, this “EPP” or is it more likely a figment of the right's imagination?

    BK -

    Just Google it and you will see the numerous incidents where the EPP has openely expressed their involvement. This radical leftist group is trying to accomplish its goals by violating the law. You can't allow any group, radical left or right, to go around killing people. I find it difficult to believe that you don't really recognize this. You clearly have some notion of the world because you have internet. It is fine to support the socialists or whoever you would like, but you have to draw the line at some point. Recognize that these radicals, yes both left and right, all they want is to control the people. They don't actually wish to spread the wealth or liberate the economy, they literally just want to get rich and powerful. Hugo isn't doing any good for his people, he is using them. Obama isn't doing anything because he believes it is good for the country, he just loves power. Bush, Cheney, Pinochet, Hitler, didn't want anything good for their people, they just want power and money.

    A good government is one that is small and weak. One that has very little control over people. One that can enforce laws and protect people's rights.

    Check this video out, it shows how humans live in slavery....

    Prog - come April next year, Paraguay will have free elections and Franco will peacefully step down and pass the presidency onto the next freely elected President. Paraguay has open and free elections, that is why there are never any protests against the results. People realize that the results are good. So no this is not a descredited regime. It is part of the democratic process. Impeachments were put in the constitution for a reason. Remember both left and right leaders do get kicked out. This happens so that a dictatorship doesn't start up again.

    In Venezuela, you truly have a descredited regime. There are no free elections there. Shit will hit the fan and people will die.
