Evo Wins

Otto further documents the English speaking media atrocities. It’s amazing, he has won by an overwhelming majority far greater than any mandate a UK or US politician could manage yet because he is pursuing a different path to promote the wellbeing of his people (ie a path to wellbeing as opposed to profit for the few) they have to find ways to sneer at the win. Also I guess it is jealousy, most of the people he governs like and support him, not something the middle-management-for-corporations breed of neoliberal politician we have ever experiences, there may be a clue there…

Viva Morales!
