and clarify the differences between Socialism in Venezuela, and the Socialist policies that Democrats have been promoting for decades.

He proudly identifies as a Socialist, so he's really the most effective candidate to do this.

Evo Morales has just begun his fourth consecutive term.

He's shaping up as another Democratic Socialist president-for-life.

It was a "tradition" to limit oneself to two terms (following the example of George Washington), but that wasn't the law (yet).

In Bolivia, the constitution limits a president to two consecutive terms. Evo Morales's current and former terms were unconstitutional.

He looks like a Democratic Socialist president-for-life.
