Evo would not have become a politician had it not been for his fight against the abuses of US drug policies toward Bolivia. You prefer to call Evo a narco-thug because you do not have the spine to question why a foreign country would come and tell the Bolivian government what to do, demand total immunity for their agents, and abuse its people…..instead of them abusing and punishing their own addicts. The only solution to get rid of narco-thugs is to squash addiction. Besides, if Evo was a real narco-thug he would already have 5 houses in Florida. Do your research!….JUST SAY NO

Educate your own to stop…leave south america in the hands of indigenous cultures.. Stop your power and control addictions

“On July 17, 1980, drug traffickers actually took control of a nation. Bolivia at the time [was] the source of virtually 100% of the cocaine entering the US. CIA-recruited mercenaries and drug traffickers unseated Bolivia’s democratically elected president, a leftist whom the US government didn’t want in power. Immediately after the coup, cocaine production increased massively, until it soon outstripped supply. This was the true beginning of the (US) crack “plague.” “

I remember the indian maid in our guest house packing her child on her back by bus to her hometown to vote for Morales(a two day trip) He has the support of Bolivians.

That is how he ran his coca syndicate and his corrupt mimisters run the government that way. There is no transparancy on how our budget is spent.
