Ecuador Moves Left

Ecuador's presidential election has been won by Rafael Correa, a left wing economist and admirer of Hugo Chavez. During the campaign, he called President Bush "dimwitted" and threatened to reduce payments on Ecuador's foreign debt in order to pay for new social programs.

Two words: Oy vey.

Thought you might like some good news: I received the following comment on my blog recently....

"I am a libertarian from Argentina. Altought my country has a populist and statist history, therer many libertarians fighting for liberty.

I love America, is my fauvorite country, in spite of the stupid thing that journalist say."

If you know Spanish, check out http://liberticracia.blogspot.com. We DO have allies out there - even in the country that came out on top of the list of nations that think the US is a bad influence on the world.
