2. It would be a good thing for Senator Sanders to denounce him

 

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.

9. What doesn't seem clear to you is that Venezuela and Bolivia are 2 different countries. nt

8. Bolivia's constitution limits a president to two consecutive terms in office.

 

Evo Morales has just begun his fourth consecutive term.

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

13. Except FDR was not prescribed by the Constitution from running for a 3rd or 4th term.

 

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.

7. This will be used against sanders if he is the nominee

 

I am so happy that it is very unlikely that sanders will get past Super Tuesday
