La Paz, Bolivia
President Evo Morales, trying to ease a deepening political crisis, Monday scheduled for Aug. 10 a sweeping recall referendum that would allow voters to cut short his term, those of his vice president and the country's eight provincial governors.
Morales said the vote would resolve a political showdown between his leftist administration and five governors who have pushed for more independence from the federal government. Morales has called the autonomy campaigns illegal.
Evo's integrity as a leader is awesome, imo..(meaning from what I read and hear - no direct experience)
I worry that the Iraq occupation is about the only thing that keeps Uncle ("Big Daddy") Sam from stomping around down there in combat boots. Arrogant bastard! Don't even get me started on Plan Colombia.
