Need to learn to respect a democracy
( Cali )
What this country's people/politicians need to learn is how to respect democracy and let this president stay until his term is up. Only after that they pick a new leader, but no one has the right to oust someone at 5am at gun point and be kicked out of your country and then present a false resignation letter.

This is a legal removal of a president that is in violation of the Honduran Constitution.

Why is Obama now meddling in the internal affairs of a soveriegn nation and why is he siding with Hugo Chavez against the nation of Honduras?
