    So it's not quite perfectly legal according to their own laws. Looks like you are going to have to do some of your famous back pedaling.
    I keep thinking the Honduras Constitution does not allow any amendments regarding Presidental term limits.

    Really ? Your OP is in support of the dictators that just crushed democracy in Hondourus.

    You called the Hondourus President, who was elected by a majority in a democracy a "communist"

    Am I hallucinating your posts ?

    The former President of Honduras was violating the direct orders of the Supreme Court, their congress and the votes of even his own party in an unconstitutional grab of power.

    His actions were designed to END the democracy in Honduras. You do realize that this is what Hitler did. This is what Chavez did.

    Just because someone is elected, does not mean they are not dictators - many modern day dictators gained power by the legal means and then sought to undermine the institutions of democracy.

    That is exactly what the former President was trying to do.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.
