Have We Missed Our Last Chance?

The Racist, Criminally Insane Fascist Takeover Must Be Stopped In Bolivia

Improved civil rights. Improved educational system. Improved infrastructure. Increased wages. Job growth. Booming economy. Decreases in poverty, crime, homelessness, serious illness, health care costs and preventable deaths. A level of inclusiveness that never existed under U.S. approved corporate puppets. Bolivia had actually achieved democracy in recent years. They have gone in the opposite direction that […]
