Constitutional Fallacies

Last Friday I diligently comply with one of our most “plurinational”, and Creole traditions of the country and went to drink a few “frias” in one of the hundred “boliches” in Cochabamba; a magical place where you can talk about everything and anything when there are no maSSist zealots with cell phones around; but do to the current situation of the country, it focus mostly on politics.

Many were the topics of the night, but the most intense one was the supposedly marvelous new constitution we have in the country; there were obviously some infiltrated maSSist goons in the table; so most of us watched what we said but manage to screw with their minds anyways.

The maSSist poit of view was that with the new constitutions, followed textually, that means as Evo interpreter it for them; all problems of the country were going to be solved. One of the first comments, I meant, obstacles to them, was the insinuation that the maSSist might not win a majority of votes in the senate. The maSSist, after writing something in a little booklet replied, “All is set for the MAS party to have at least 50% of congress, which will allow them to be able to change anything in the constitution or any law if that matters”. This could happen because the maSSist constitution doesn’t respect the rights of the political minorities.

One brave person observed that there was no need to spend so many efforts to win Congress, since in Bolivia all you need is to have the power of the violent masses in the street and whoever is the President can screw this constitution like Evo screwed last constitution. I freezing breeze crossed the tables, since we all new that the maSSist forces included now the vicious of the violent from the Union Juvenil Crucenista in Santa Cruz and that in Bolivia, a change of topic was urgently needed.

I wisely moved towards attacking the maSSist enemy, yes, the USA; and informed all that when I was in that country I had the chance to read their constitution and was involved in studying some of their laws at the time they deported my for being an illegal, I meant, “unauthorized” worker. And told them that their Constitution is so fucked up that allowed black people from being segregated and having their human rights taken away from them; since their Constitution in the 60’s is the same than today. Someone rapidly jumped with a comment indicating that an interracial couple; I believe in Alabama, was denied civil matrimony by the justice of peace based in racism.

These really messed up the maSSist minds in the table, they happily paid for the beer and left with the belief they hit a jack pot with the juicy news of the racist USA Constitution; they were probably thinking on how to beat each other on communicating it from, “reliable’ sources, to their bosses, Evo, Lineras’s and company.

The rest of us left knowing that it doesn’t matter what it says in the constitution, what matter is that if you make presidents so powerful, it will be human nature to try becoming a totalitarian ruler where a Constitution is no more than a paper to clean their ass. And so will happen if you allow the majority of the society to decide over the rights of the minorities, as it happened with Afro-Americans in the 50’s and 60’s. Both of the situations will happen in Bolivia if Evo Morales is allowed to win the December elections, it is a good thing the democracy fighters are ready to reduce the possibility for it to happen and are now prepare to fight on the long run if this preliminary battle is lost.

Apology to violation of Human Rights

The past 3 weeks passed by pretty fast, it all started as soon as I sat foot on the country after a lengthy flight; in La Paz. The shit had just hit the fan for the regime of Evo Morales and his indigenous fascist comrades; the opposition lead by Manfred Reyes Villa had just accused the regime of human rights violations because they would not let his Vice President candidate, a political prisoner here in La Paz, speak freely with the press. Nothing changed the stubborn, hateful and racist minds of the maSSist oligarchy and their zealots; and it gave Manfred Reyes Villa and his party one week of free political propaganda and endless ammunition; the case is currently about to be ventilate in the UN at their US headquarters, and the maSSist regime has everything to loose.

Now, just a week ago, a new front has opened; the revelations that the government manipulate and implanted evidence on the still open case of the assassinated presumed terrorist Eduardo Rozsa and two of his friends. The regimes trying to hide their deeds by lying means they have to say 5 more lies to cover the first one and so one; the true is soon to be completely reveled, and is not going to look good for a criminal like Evo Morales, whom recognized gave the order to kill Rozsa and the others.

All this plus the publications of key maSSist zealots warning of possible elections fraud against Evo Morales by their appointee President of the Electoral Court, how laughable, and the fact that Alejo Veliz, and old Morales ally, accused Morales from participating as a lower chamber candidate for MAS archenemy Goni Sanchez de Lozada and the MNR party back in 1985 is going to bring interesting artillery to the last month of the election process.

As it appears, there is a large window of opportunity for the freedom fighters in Bolivia to restore democracy and the Republic, we will keep fighting for it to happen; Viva Bolivia Libre of maSSist racism and totalitarism.

Why Obama, why?

Cannot you hate the light skinned people like I do? Asked himself Evo Morales, dictator wannabe of the ex Republic of Bolivia while accusing US President Barrack Obama of racism against the Bolivian indigenous people at his speech at the UN last week.

A statement like this would have cause furor just 3 years ago when Evo and his sweater were the political hit of the moment. These days, Evo’s jargon are yap, yap, yap on the international community ears, outside Venezuela of course. The funny thing is that his pathetic words didn’t even have repercussions in Bolivia, I got the news from a Venezuelan friend that sent me a video he taped of a pro Chavez Venezuelan TV station by e-mail. Non of my friends in the US heard or care about it, neither we in Bolivia. Not that I am saying it didn’t air here, it might, I don’t live in front of the TV; but if he appeared, it didn’t make the shock waves it use to do in the past.

Something that did showed in Bolivia was the second SOS meeting in Margarita Island, Venezuela; where Evo shared space and ideology with his likes Mugabi, Chavez, Gadhafi and Correa. I felt sorry for Lula and Bachelet being in the middle of that hot pot of dictator apprentices, but they are not going to run for office anymore, so I guess they believe have little to loose.

Evo off course, didn’t loose the opportunity to blame his problems to others, his most important words where more or less, “who is responsible for the melting glaciers in Bolivia and the Andes, Capitalism is the enemy of humanity”. I guess nobody told him that his friend Hugo Chavez burns tons of gas to the atmosphere every day which are a pollution source much closer to Bolivia than those of the mean capitalist states further North.

Good thing he didn’t mention desertification, some wise ass might have mention him that all the rainforest his cocalero zealot burn to plant coco leaves at protected national parks while assassinating their legal indigenous communities or build roads trough an anima sanctuary are a cause of decertification closer to home. By the way, the latter news did show in all Bolivian free press.

I am Back in the Saddle

It is being a while, a long while since I write in my blog; something I had to do to make sure I don’t screw up and give away any strategy from the Victor Hugo Cardenas presidential interests. Now that Victor Hugo has declined his postulation and I have decided not to participate within any of the pro democracy candidates, Manfred and Samuel, I will start writing again and off course given a hand here and there to the Manfred Reyes Villa camp, the candidate that I support to lead the country towards reintegration and freedom of the people.

I was amassed by the way the regional fissure become such an obstacle for the candidacy of Victor Hugo Cardenas, a fissure that appeared to be an abysm hundreds of kilometers wide for those close to Cardenas in the occident of the country. Their idea in their minds of Bolivia being the Andes, and their culture, could not let them open their eyes to make them understand that if Victor Hugo wanted to be a president of the country, he needed to have contacts and alliances with everybody in the country.

It was so sad to see that they claimed that alliances with the Orient were welcome, but with new people, new blood; like if they were any new on politics or like if they created the Victor Hugo candidacy in a couple of months. What can I tell you all, it was like seeing a second MAS in the making, with old politicians believing they are the new blood because were never a part of a Bolivian government, or were part of it for a short period of time.

The recipe was old, and it was proven a disaster by the Andean autocracy of the maSSist regime, so was understood by Victor Hugo; whom wisely bailed out after Manfred Reyes Villa showed he was capable of cementing that fissure between the Andes and the Orient; and so was Doria Medina, in a very light, fuzzy way.

Manfred is, in reality, the only real possibility to keep democracy and freedom in Bolivia, the so called right wing candidate has nothing off what a right wing politician in other more moderate and lest socialistic countries would have. He is another populist, hard worker, expert investor on social programs and constructor of cities, a modern man but hardly a conservative, which is the trademark of the right wing politician.

Off course comparing with the leftist, neo fascism of Evo Morales and his MAS party, almost anybody else in Bolivia will be considered on the right side of the spectrum of politics as we know them. And yes, different from what the maSSist regime and their allies whine about, the fascists thinking is a combination of nationalism and socialism, which were and are key components of the regimes of Mussolini, Hitler, Chavez and Evo Morales.

Bolivia can still be saved from the hate and racism of Morales neo fascism of Evo Morales. Funny, and sad thing, the biggest problem for this to happen is the insistence of Doria Medina to participate en the elections, with the “I am in the middle flag” he cleverly raised from the beginning of the creation of his party; not enough to win a presidency, but enough to win key sets in Congress to help serve his enterprise interests. To bad a good 10% of the Bolivia population is fooled by this person that only thinks on himself and his money. Today that is a 10% the Bolivian democratic freedom fighter cannot easily spare; especially with the 6% cheat votes insured by the maSSist regime abroad.

We will see what happens, and will off course, help guiding the country towards the respect to of human rights for “everybody” at any open possibility; I will keep posting till that happens.

More Political Refugees from the maSSist Regime

As we can see bellow, even Brazilian leftist government considers the maSSist regime of Evo Morales a dictatorship

Santa Cruz El Deber
Tras casi nueve meses de la matanza de Porvenir, el Gobierno de Brasil decidió otorgar refugio político a 118 bolivianos que viven en las ciudades fronterizas de Brasileia y Epitaciolandia. Según la agencia ANSA, la decisión fue tomada por el Consejo Nacional para los Refugiados (Conare) y la medida fue defendida por el ministro de Justicia de Brasil, Tarso Genro, uno de los dirigentes más importantes del Partido de los Trabajadores (PT).
Los bolivianos que recibieron el asilo son socorridos por la administración de Lula da Silva desde septiembre pasado y vivían en el coliseo de Brasileia.
El diario Estado do Sao Paulo informó de que los bolivianos recibieron el refugio por entender que existe el temor de persecución política y falta de garantías para que se les siga un proceso legal imparcial.
“Son personas del pueblo, trabajadores, comerciantes. No hay interés por parte nuestra si los conflictos los colocan en la izquierda o en la derecha", dijo el ministro Genro, citado por Estado do Sao Paulo.
Consultado al respecto, el esposo de Ana Melena, Carlos Suzuki, aseguró que la ex dirigente cívica es una de las beneficiarias con el refugio, pero evitó hacer comentarios porque las autoridades brasileñas le advirtieron que, a partir de ese momento, ya no podía realizar declaraciones políticas.
Más de 300 ciudadanos bolivianos cruzaron la frontera con Brasil por los puente que unen Cobija con Brasileia y Epitaciolandia, el 16 de septiembre de 2008, luego de que el Ejército boliviano tomara prisionero al prefecto de Pando, Leopoldo Fernández.
El 11 de septiembre, en la localidad de Porvenir, se produjo un enfrentamiento entre campesinos afines al Gobierno y partidarios autonomistas que provocó nueve muertos, siete campesinos y dos de los afines a Fernández. Un día después, el Gobierno dictó estado de sitio en todo el departamento amazónico y, en la acción de retoma del aeropuerto de Cobija, que estaba ocupado por los autonomistas desde el 5 de septiembre, fallecieron un pastor evangélico y un policía militar por impactos de bala.
Fernández se encuentra detenido en la cárcel de San Pedro de La Paz, a la espera de un juicio ordinario, pese a que la Corte Suprema de Justicia indicó que le corresponde un juicio de responsabilidades y ordenó que sea trasladado a Sucre para ser juzgado por la Corte Suprema de Justicia.
La decisión brasileña no ha agradado a las víctimas de septiembre. La abogada que representa a las familias de los siete campesinos fallecidos, Mary Carrasco, anunció que, a través de la Cancillería boliviana, extremará recursos para revertir el refugio de los 118 bolivianos, ya que considera que están implicados en los enfrentamientos.
“Haremos llegar las partes más esenciales de la investigación penal, a objeto de que se revierta el refugio que han obtenido a base de mentiras, pero respetaremos los canales diplomáticos", acotó Carrasco.
La abogada comentó que “recibe con sorpresa el refugio a 118 bolivianos que huyeron de la región pandina de Cobija” tras los hechos de Porvenir y dejó en claro que no todos tienen relación con la denominada masacre de Porvenir.
“La información que proporcionaron esas personas a las autoridades brasileñas son puras mentiras y que el proceso que se lleva adelante en Bolivia no es una persecución política. A nombre de las víctimas podemos asegurar que no existirá cansancio en la batalla penal contra los fugitivos que se convirtieron en refugiados que el Gobierno del Brasil”, dijo.
15 campesinos inocentes
La Fiscalía de Cobija determinó el sobreseimiento de 15 campesinos acusados de homicidio, lesiones graves y tentativa de asesinato en los hechos del 11 de septiembre de 2008.
De acuerdo con el informe del fiscal de materia Fidel Ribera, la etapa de investigación se encuentra ‘superabundantemente vencida’ y “los elementos probatorios sobre la acusación no fueron presentados en la etapa de la investigación”.
El 12 de septiembre de 2008, el Ministerio Público por intermedio de los fiscales de Materia Mario Mariscal Miranda y Patricia Tania Romero, presentó una imputación contra 15 campesinos bajo los delitos de homicidio. Luego del enfrentamiento de Porvenir, los cívicos apresaron a 15 campesinos y los llevaron a las oficinas del Comité Cívico de Pando.
• La solicitud de asilo podrá ser efectuada en cualquier delegación de la Policía Federal de Brasil, que se encuentran en puestos fronterizos y puertos.• El extranjero que llega al territorio brasileño podrá expresar su voluntad de solicitar el reconocimiento del estatuto de refugiado a cualquier autoridad migratoria que se encuentra en la frontera.• La autoridad a quien fue presentada la solicitud deberá atender al que pide el asilo y preparar los trámites de la declaración, que deberá incluir las circunstancias relativas a su ingreso con Brasil y los motivos que lo hicieron huir de su país de origen. • El ingreso irregular en el territorio brasileño no constituye un impedimento para la solicitud de asilo ante las autoridades competentes.• No se rechazará en la frontera a quien manifiesta su deseo de solicitar asilo. • La autoridad competente tomará las declaraciones del solicitante, acto que marca el inicio del procedimiento. • Además de las declaraciones prestadas si es necesario, con la ayuda de un traductor, el solicitante deberá llenar el formulario de reconocimiento de la condición de refugiado, la cual deberá incluir su identificación completa, profesión, grado de escolaridad y también el de los miembros de su grupo familiar, así como la narración de las circunstancias y acontecimientos en que se basa su solicitud, proporcionando las pruebas pertinentes, si las posee. • Los trámites de la solicitud tienen que ser realizados por un funcionario calificado y en condiciones que aseguran el secreto de las informaciones.

MaSSist Anarchy

As it was expected, the taking over and stealing Ex Vice President Victor Hugo Cardenas’s country house with the aggravate of the beating of his elderly wife and young children and nice by a maSSist mob lead by Evo Morales henchmen is a hot topic of discussion in the country and within my inner circle of friends and foes.

The most interesting comments come this time from the maSSist zealots, especially from the ones with higher education and the ones that trough the Bolivian style Persian market had worked hard and made enough money to own a small property to rest and enjoy in the countryside. Most of them have a member of the community that takes care of the grounds without pay but with the right to live in a hut on the border of the property with their family. They are also allowed to take some of the agricultural products the small land produces if the owners are interested on having them. Yes, the above owners are in deed Evo Morales supporters; at least they were up to the Cardenas’ ordeal.

For them, communitarian justice was fare away, at the land their grandparents left, were their poor cousin live, no at the out squirts of the cities or at the well established tows were they go eat their “platito’ and drink their chicha in tutuma. Today, those sacred places are no man’s land taking in account the way the maSSist regime is allowing the violent to interpreter the new constitution.

Most of them think that in this case the community made a mistake and that what it was done it was definitively not right, but none of them say they will rise against the communal leaders if they believe what they are doing is wrong. And why will they? The quechua-aymara communities have teach their young that to survive is to do whatever the community says they have to do, without taking in consideration that the “community” is in reality one or two powerful families that control everything, from production to commerce in their little feud; just like in medieval Europe.

And like in medieval Europe, those landlords had to kneel and serve as the stick of the more powerful king or warlord in order to subjugate the people; specially those vocal against the powerful. In this case the king is replaced by a dictator want to be which masterfully handles their landlords in a Machiavellian way and supported with a lot of money; which by the way, is starting to run scarce.

For what is worth, and as a short answer, these maSSist supported usually tell you they fill they are OK since they are planning continuing serving or supporting the party; off course, knowing their treacherous ways, they might clean up their fear by exchanging their secret vote, while they still have one, for somebody less tyrant than Evo Morales. Who knows and maybe treacherousness won’t be such an ugly word, especially if it is used to kick the maSSist out of government.

In the psyche of a tyrant

The despicable acts of barbaric dimensions performed by the maSSsit acolytes against former Vice President Victor Hugo Cardenas wife, children and other minors at their residence on Lake Titicaca have touched many Bolivian harts in the country and the repercussions are starting to come from abroad.

For us Bolivians living in the Country since before the Morales rising to power trough the use of violence in the streets, after seeing or experience the continued violence by the regime’s squadristi and the violation of human rights with illegal kidnappings of political dissidents at night, which also terrorizing their families and the community, at Pando, Tarija and Santa Cruz. The taking over of Cardenas house, beating his elderly wife and flagellating his son, a teenager, by the hordes of maSSist who’s only reason is that Victor Hugo doesn’t think like them, has become the real shock wave of what is coming towards us if Morales is allowed to reign past December.

But the shock wave didn’t really come from the regime’s henchmen acts, it come from Evo Morales and Alvaro Garcia Lineras themselves; given very little importance to the issue and actually condoning the acts of their paid mob trying to blame this despicable act on the victim itself. Now, one thing is kicking the shit out of a nobody or taking prisoner the political leader of the smaller Department in the country with the smaller amount of followers; an other thing is non having any problem on violently attacking a well know, respected and peaceful leader like Victor Hugo Cardenas, the deeds of the maSSist regime as tyrannical as the ones performed by the Nazi party on Hitler’s Germany.

The world is finally starting to understand what type of tyrant they have being feeding with glamour, benevolence and understanding, and in Bolivia beneath the rubble being left by the despotic regime of Evo Morales a tyrant slayer has born today under the name of Victor Hugo Cardenas, all Bolivians believers of democracy, respect of human rights and who love their country should start doing something to contribute to his success. I will definitely be doing a lot for that to happen.

“It is the time of MAS”

I was about to start this post describing the hilarious pretentions of the maSSist regime to blame everything on the CIA, USA, Obama or whatever; but I realized that it is worthless doing so because only the hard core zealots to the Morales dictatorship still believe what their beloved leader says; and I don’t give a rat’s ass of what those people think; would be like trying to take somebody like Rush Limbaugh in the USA seriously.

Today’s maSSist regime encroaching to power is finally starting to get real challenges from several fronts and maybe people in the country will start to vote not because the color of their skin but because what their leaders really do. And, according to the regimes appointed to fight corruption; that is one thing they really suck at and most of their leaders don’t want to participate fighting it, because as she clearly pointed out, they are the rotten apple.

The things are getting so bad, that now hard core maSSist, like the ones taking over the health department in Cochabamba, don’t have any problem appearing live on TV indicating that they are assigning positions to the regime’s acolytes even if they are not ready to assume the functions of their work because as he blatantly put it, “It is the time of MAS”. So what if these are doctor, they will learn while in function whatever they don’t know now; and if they learn, who cares, is the CIA’s fault.

The case of Santos Ramirez and YPFB is so pathetic and so much has being written about, but the important thing is that the democracy fighters are finally learning, from the maSSist henchmen, and have started legal actions against Evo Morales. Soon he will have as much charges, if not more, than his archrival Goni Sanchez de Lozada. The reaction of the regime has really fast and it is obvious they are really disturbed by the situation; they very well know that at the end, this will mean their exile from Bolivia; and maybe Venezuela won’t be such a haven when that happens. They will, off course, always have Cuba.

Well, some of my readers would say, it couldn’t be that bad, something good the regime must be doing. Well yes, I have just being informed that their Defense Minister, their Presidency Minister and their Legal Defense Minister have a combined budget execution of 88%; this is no small feat taking in account those 3 ministers take 60% of the regimes resources. The only problem is, why those the regime spend so much money in defense, we are not at war with any other nation; as a matter of fact, we are only in war against Denge. Which, by the way, the entire budged for health in the country is an “amazing” 4%.

Yes, the maSSist have being very good at keeping the military happy, busy taking political prisoners from their homes at the middle of the night braking our human rights at desire. In the mean time hundreds of Bolivians get sick with Denge in an epidemic never seen before, not even during military ruling, and many are already death while the maSSist rulers are planning the best way they will deliver medical equipment donated by the Europeans; the problem is, the band they planned to use is sick in the hospital with Denge and Malaria.

What can we say; it is just, the time of MAS.

Changes, lots of Changes

After a month, and a little more, out of the Country, which prevented me to vote against the racist constitution of Evo Morales and his maSSist government; my district still voted NO for a more than 2/3 off the votes, I am finally home. Many things have changed, for the worst to Bolivia, for the better to my pocket; 6 times as much in one month than what I make in Bolivia; I love capitalism and free market!

Now I will have better possibilities to choose to whom I work, I am erasing the corrupted YPFB right away; they were always bad payers and always wanted to cut deals for their pockets anyways. And I will have more time to write in my blog, keeping the world informed, I might be even starting a new one to plan the ousting of Evo and his cohort of anti democratic ant human rights henchmen. First in the incoming presidential elections next December and if not successful; we will see.

For the moment I am busy taking care of a family of friends of mine whose daughter has contracted denge; thanks to the zero vision for real social projects from the maSSist regime. They spend so much money indoctrination people and teaching them to write their name, because is a lie they can actually read and understand what they are reading, and now those same people are suffering from a disease that all other governments were able to control.

But what can we expect, the Morales administration has broken already all the records any democratic government had in Bolivia, and the record of some de facto governments as well; in incompetence, number of political assassinated, number of political detainees, corruption, racism, human rights violations and stupidity.

The good thing is that there is still some democracy fighters that are not willing to give up the Country, off course, we are conscious that rescuing Bolivia from a racist and populist regime, completely comparable to the one Hitler had, will take time, resources and guts. I am very proud to be a person in such position and plan to become a torn in Evo’s abarca in the very short time.

In the mean time, while I enjoy the fruit of my work, safely deposit in a European account while helping prepare the way to demolish the commies, I mean, progre, wanabies next December. You will be hearing from me…..

Vote NO!

I have concluded my detailed evaluation of the proposed new Bolivian Constitution the citizens of this country plus the ones paid by the maSSist regime are going to vote this incoming Sunday; I have also compared the document with our current Constitution and I decided I will vote NO for the new changes.

So the world know, and then its advice for the disgraces that are going to fall upon this beautiful country in case the regime of Evo Morales is able to change the Constitution, I vote NO for the following reasons:

NO, because I don’t want a Constitution that favors the citizens of this country in base of race, or color of the skin.

NO, because it encourages the use and expansion of communitarian justice over common law; which allows the increase breaking of the human rights, specially women, in the country.

NO, because we are going to vote for a constitution born from the violation of the current constitution; which provides a precedent for also breaking the new constitution in case it is approved.

NO, because if the constitution is changed it will give Evo Morales regime even more power to persecute those that think different than them and I am already tired of not being able to write with my own name and last name.

NO, because approving the new constitution will say that I also approve the laying, corruption and violence of the maSSist regime.

NO, because the new constitution will intent forcing Bolivians to have to work for the government in the future, thus making all off as slaves of the maSSist regime.

NO, because the approval of the new constitution will not be accepted by half of the country and the division of Bolivia, most probably violently, is ensured.

Thus, I will go vote NO because I am a Bolivian that wants to live free from oppression.

In the Navy . . . . . . . . .or the Army

it is time to continue dissecting the proposal of new constitution we are going to go voting at the end of the month; I will now jump to comment over one of the country’s latest news and its relationship with the proposed new constitution.

As you all know, Evo Morales surprise many last Monday the 5th when he designate a new Commander in Chief of the Bolivian Armed Forces, from the Navy this time. This will not be out of the ordinary if not for this designation being months before it should have happened. The explanation come shortly after, there are serious discrepancies within the armed forces, for several months now, over acquiring power positions before the new constitution is approved and forceful army service finally becomes “constitutional”.

The main reason of this is because Hugo Chavez has dramatically reduced his petrodollar checks; many of them used to keep the Bolivian military happy and obedient to the regime; and now the high command will once again need the slave labor of conscripts to make their living comfortable.

When last year it was brought up to the country’s attention that our current constitution doesn’t obligate its citizens, regardless of gender, to forcefully service in the army; there was a great deal of preoccupation from that branch of the Bolivian society. Off course, there were no apologies to the thousands of Bolivians whose rights were violated when they were forced to comply with military enlistment; many of them picked up from the street in the infamous “caiman”, military trucks, nor there were apologies to the many more who were denied of work in a public institution if they couldn’t produce their military service papers, or if the document said they were “unable”; even if that meant unable to physically do the service, not to work.

The new proposal of constitution, in its Title III, Article 108.12 indicates that among the duties of male Bolivian citizens, it is obligatory to perform the military service. Article 249 in Title VII says a similar thing, but excludes gender, saying; "All Bolivian citizen is obligated to perform military service, according to the law."

So what is the big deal about this, many democracies in the world have obligatory military services, like for example Switzerland, the European nation the Morales regime so much wants to equal; in prosperity, not in freedom of will. Well, there is that little word called, “Law”. The one that is going to be enacted after the new proposal of constitution is approved and Evo Morales is once again elected is already written and waiting its turn to become law in the country. Off course, this assumeing that the new proposal for constitution and evo both win.

Evo himself bragged about its contents a few weeks ago, the new obligatory military service law will establish that all those Bolivian citizens enrolled in the forceful military service will receive 3 months of military training and 9 months of other “technical” training to be used by the conscript to get a job after his service. Well, this is what is essentially wrong with the law:

> The conscripts will be used once again as slaves, constitutionally this time, in “construction”, “farming”, “transportation”, etc. training, for the military hierarchy and their families.

> Technical training must be performed by the Universities and Technical Colleges, many of them state dependant and must not be forceful. Military training is the only obligatory training the military must perform. I have nothing against technical training within the military if one chooses the military career for a living.

> If technical training is going to be freely provided by the state, it must be given equally to “all” Bolivians, regardless of gender of physical condition. The way it is written in the incomeing law allows for it to be constitutionally correct to be prejudiced against women or physically challenged since they are not taken in account for military service.

What I can say, this time, voting NO for the new Constitution proposal wins 3 goals to nil.
