The case of Honduras, which history speaks

IMG_0606 The case of Honduras, is a situation that is full of many confusions of which I do not intend to make clarifications because for that there are people who have that role. The most complicated thing is that the struggle is not only administrative for democracy but has ideological connotations, and up to this point I prefer not to stick my nose.

  • I do not sympathize with the right, because half of my life has shown me that all (with some exceptions) are equal, interested in their own affairs, accommodated to interests.
  • I also do not sympathize with the left because although several of its postulates are interesting, many social achievements have been thanks to its contribution, what happens is that a high percentage of my family died fighting for these ideals and after having almost half of my life dreaming of their promises, I have spent the other half trying to forget them.
  • And the mixtures between them, can become as perverse as the same extremes, almost like playing with the bar of bands of a satellite image ... but to the beast.

So with two boys at school, my mortgage on my house being amortized by fire, allergy to the ideological extremes, openness to ways of life that I would not do myself but that have shown me to be right, I conclude that without my monthly adrenaline I have dreams because the world can be a better place ... for everyone.

So, who will tell the story of Honduras, time knows it but I want to close yesterday's chapter that I could barely interline it via mobile because the internet connection was a calamity. I was so eager to finish a post about the usefulness of keeping the dirty cadastral maps for their historical and legal value but the inspiration is cut when you have to think about the safety of your kids who have no idea of ​​the risk that exists out there while they have cable TV.

1 I insist on the corruption issue

These people are tired of abuse of power, use of public resources (of us) for private purposes or spent irresponsibly. The highest is seen in those who do it with such impudence that it is even commented as a praised cunning, and this everyone knows. I even dare to suppose that they themselves could know it too.

As long as this persists, there will always be democratic instability in Latin America.

2 Blow or no blow, which gives more

International news has focused on what is a military coup, others who have spoken to Hondurans call it oligarchic conspiracy, others call it constitutional succession.

What this is, I do not expect to make it official, you have to be here for the last few years to know what it is. For the moment, the new government must justify its legality internationally, and the previous one find enough forces with the ALBA, OAS, Mercosur and other instances to fight their right.

I do not care, the peace of the population was broken, both by the imprudence of a president accustomed to saying "this male is my mule", and that with good intentions he fought with his party, with the churches, the power judicial, the legislative power, the public ministry, and finally with the armed forces. Many of his actions leave us in great doubt about who should put in order the arbitrary actions of a president. The other side also broke our peace, for having let him go very far with his follies and the hypocrisy of those who prefer to let someone finish sinking in order to bring water to his mill.

But finally a legacy of Zelaya remains in the population, which awoke with a hope to be heard, and which will now claim. Unfortunately, he did it through a too controversial way before the legal establishment of the country and under flirtation with the extreme left that has no sympathy for the cancellation of many freedoms in the countries where it is established in a totalitarian manner.

3. Mission difficult, do not try again

Now comes the test of fire, the constitutional successor has just six months to show that it is not going to water as many as we have had. In November there should be presidential elections again, as planned and this crazy story should end as long as there is an opportunity to choose the "least worst"

But while these six months pass, we all hope that the chapter of extreme sectarianism will be closed, and a national dialogue will be opened where there will be opportunities to talk about many changes that have been necessary for a long time. The country has many vices to deal with, such as political patronage, the lack of long-term planning, legal reorganization, poetic decentralization, the inheritance of political power at the level of surnames, the sickly bipartisanship, in short ...

If you want to make substantial changes, it takes a long-term job, and that implies opening the door to the participation of the population with alternatives better than the fire extinguisher removed by means of the regulation of the referendum and plebiscite legally existing.

If one thing we ask the successor is that in just six months DO NOT CAGE, because it is too little time for stubbornness that have shown some of their sectarian views. The country has an interesting opportunity to speak with sincerity, these moments, as well as that of Hurricane Mitch can be wasted by petty interests.

Rather than prove to the world that they recognize him as constitutional president, he must prove to us that he will not xgará like many others in such a short time that I can hardly write 180 post, see 6 movies in the cinema and go to church 24 times with the hope that my boys have something to believe in.

4. A new movement to emerge

I am convinced that political parties are necessary for the exercise of democracy, but a better alternative must emerge in the face of destructive practices that occur throughout Latin America and that lead to institutional retreat every four years as:

  • The purchase of media, either by the government to cover errors or influence of others to maintain their particular interests.
  • The slowness in advancing laws such as the civil and civil servant civil race, which can open the door to a way to combat the political clientelism that many countries have already driven.
  • The definition of a long-term plan, born of a social and political consensus, such that each incoming government, knows what the contribution is to the critical indicators that must be met.
  • The decentralization of the administration of economic development from the central government to the municipalities and the reconfiguration of regional entities that give value to departmental governance, rather than a political link.
  • The review of public policies that consider the existing social debt, and which is the cause of all this commotion.

If this and other 235 changes can make them existing parties, welcome, they have all the human and intellectual resources to do so; not so time.

If they do not, then there will be a new movement that will take away their preference in the town, even if I have to take a name as crazy as I heard the other day there: "Movement of social claim Lempira Live, hehe, .

Anyway, let's finish all this, there is a gain and strengthening of the causes of the public welfare, as he said it here

  1. IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS ​​CHRIST I TELL THE HONDURAN PEOPLE THAT THEY HAVE NO FEAR OF ANYTHING BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT THOSE WHO LOVE GOD ALL THINGS HELP US THE MAN SAYS ONE THING BUT THE THOUGHT OF GOD IS HIGHER THAN THE HEAVENS THE EARTH GOD HAS CONTROL OF ALL THINGS WE TRUST IN HIM AND HE WILL DO THE VICTORY IS SAFE IF WE TRUST THE FOLLOWS ALWAYS LOOKING UP FOR HIM THERE IS NOTHING HIDDEN EVERYTHING KNOWS AND EVERYTHING CAN, GOD BLESS YOU.

  2. WHAT IS AT A GLANCE DOES NOT NEED ANYTHING THE HONDURIC CASES A GOLPEDE STATE IN CONTUBERNIO WITH THE HONDURAN OLIGARCHY DISGUISED OF DEMOCRAT, THE GOVERNMENT OF GORILATTE IS A TYPICAL CASE OF THE CAVERNICOLAS YEARS OF SANGRIENTA LASDICTADURA S OF AMERICA LATIA AS SOMOZA IN NICARAGUA, DICTATORS WHICH WERE ENTRONIZED IN ELPODER TO BLOOD AND FIRE AND SUPPORTED BY GOLFERS LIKE THE MILITARY CUPULA JEFEADA BY THE PUPPET ROMEO VASQUEZ.

  3. Gentlemen, how is it possible that international opinion, the OAS, and others
    governments of Latin America, are so overwhelmed that Mr. Zelaya,
    according to these, have given him a coup d'etat, being a President
    elected by the ballot box; how are you not astonished also that Mr. Chá-
    time, Evo Moralez, Daniel Ortega and Correa, are constantly forgotten
    that many of its opponents were also elected ballot boxes, and
    constantly harass, persecute and constantly subject to
    are striking the constitution and the precepts instituted in the ur-
    I think that what is good for the pava, should also be for the
    turkey, or is that when it comes to what affects the turkey we are closed
    the eyes; the policy has to be matched for the whole world.

  4. Obviously, the case of Honduras will be a case study, since peace and democracy were imposed on the excesses, corruption and future dictatorship of former President Zelaya, backed by Hugo Cháves. It is a golden opportunity that Honduras has, which can not afford to waste to start a takeoff in which the force of the law, the fight against corruption and the development of a Country Plan for politicians prevail Do not waste resources, time and effort and make Honduras a country with less inequality.

  5. It is unfortunate what they are doing with democracy in Honduras and with the Honduran people here in Venezuela we are clear that this is a blow but a whip more for participatory, representative and protagonist democracy we are totally against autocracy and in favor of democracy!

  6. How is it possible that in the attempt to save Christianity we try to kill those who do not want to believe in this; and I say it because in the case of Honduras, this is what has happened; Mr. Zelaya, gentlemen of the international community, members of the OAS, caused this to happen, he wanted to violate the intentions of the constituted powers against the collegial mandate of his Government, Mr. Zelaya, just as Chavez , Correa, Ortega and Morales wanted to implement a constitutional coup; but how does Mr. Jose Miguel Insulza understand these things, who apparently have a very narrow concept of democracy; a question that is not explicable in someone who has a recognized diplomatic career; is that Mr. Insulza's eagerness to win the vote for his re-election in the OAS Secretariat has made him close his eyes and not see that democracy is not only the one they choose at the polls, but the one that does not violate sacrosanct principles of democracy in any of its senses; presumably Mr. Insulza thinks that Chavez, Morales, Ortega and Morales are democratic, violating constitutions and human rights in their countries, when he recognizes that Fidel Castro is not a dictator, and that to remain for fifty years directing a country with no choice but him; is a supreme act of democracy; Oh freedom how many crimes are committed in your name

  7. congratulations from Honduras, have shown that the constitution is respected, hopefully someday we Venezuelans will have the courage and courage that you have demonstrated, and that the once glorious Venezuelan army has the pants to face the corruption that consumes Venezuela.
    Chavez will continue to spend millions of dollars infiltrating the governments of Latin America with his personalist project, trying vaguely to emulate the glory of Simon Bolivar.
    Barvo Hondurans, we can not but envy their value.

  8. WHAT IS CLEAR IN HONDURAS THERE WAS A STATUS HIT AS I HAD IN VENEZUELA, NOBODY REALIZES WHAT WE ARE LIVING IN REALITY THAT IT IS WHAT THE PRESIDENTS WANT TO REVOLUTIONARY TRULY LADIES THAT ALL WE WOULD LIKE THAT THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT IS A LOT OF ORDER AND WHEN WE VALUE TO HEAVEN IN CASE THEY WERE ASKED HOW GOD WILL RECEIVE ME WITH WHAT FACE I WILL SEE IF I WISHED WRONG TO MY PROJECT. HUB BEAT STATUS OKEY ………………………………….

  9. You know, we do not really all know TOOOOODO the scope of what has happened in our country, what we have done ALL HONDURAS.
    What Ms. Margarita Montes says is very true, international organizations DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THIS.
    The rulers of the ALBA countries are afraid that their people will take the "EVIL EXAMPLE" of Honduras and that has them shaking, but hey ...

    What I really want to tell you is that we KNOW that God has already taken control of our nation.

    We know that God is going to raise a flag over us, we know that God uses the vile of the world to avenge the wise and the weak of the world to shame the strong.

    You know? the world is turning our backs on us, but the one who is with us is bigger than the one in the world.

    THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BE ADMIRED, WE WILL BE ADMIRED ABOUT WHAT GOD WILL DO.

    Those who today turn their backs on us, whom we have been faithful to, tomorrow will ask what happened, how can we have what you have? What did they do to be what they are today?

    And we will be able to share with them and tell them GOD WITH US, WE ARE MOST.

  10. The important thing of the events of Honduras is that the country opened the eyes and that has made them a nation GRANDEEE! A PRESIDENT CAN NOT JAMAS ALZARCE X ON THE CONSTITUTION OF THE REPUBLIC, XQ WOULD BE LIKE A SON WILL IRRESPETATE TO HIS MOTHER ... XQ THE MOTHER WANTS HER AND is respected for ABOVE ALL THINGS AND THE CONSTITUTION AS IF HE WAS THE MOTHER OF ALL THE CITIZENS. I LOVE YOU HONDURAN ... PEACE BACK! TRANQUILOS, HAVE FAITH IN OUR LORD JESUS ​​CHRIST AND IN HIS HOLY MOTHER WHO GAVE HIS SON TO SAVE THE WORLD ...

    HONDURAS BREAKS PARADIGM IN LATIN AMERICA
    http://lahondurasposible.blogspot.com/

    Margarita M. Montes

    The removal of President José Manuel Zelaya Rosales by the Armed Forces in the early hours of Sunday, 28 June, breaks paradigms of the contemporary political history of Latin America. For the first time in the post-Cold War era (from 1989 to date), an army deposes a constitutional and democratically elected President, to restore the rule of law, not to break the rule of law in a country, as it was characteristic of the military in previous times.

    This case cannot be classified as a “coup d'etat”, since it does not comply with two fundamental features of this political phenomenon: seizure of power by the military and breach of the rule of law. The action taken by the Armed Forces of Honduras was based on a court order and its purpose was to reestablish the rule of law, which was being consistently violated by the President of the Executive Power himself, by ignoring the provisions of the Judiciary and Legislative Power (checks and balances). After the intervention of the Armed Forces, the Political Constitution is still in force since the succession of power established by the Magna Carta was fully respected, with which a new Constitutional President is appointed.

    And from the point of view of politics, Honduras yesterday set a precedent, which will undoubtedly become a case study of universities, diplomats and politicians around the world .. For the first time in Latin America, people rebels , without bloodshed and without violence, against a constitutional and democratically elected President, for violating legal provisions and the current institutional framework in the country.

    That is why the international press, international organizations and governments around the world, have not yet understood the context and essence of this case, and are condemning what has happened in Honduras, since they are analyzing it based on concepts of the Old paradigm of coups during the Cold War era. The international community, public and private, has not yet had the time, nor the elements, to realize that in Honduras a model was broken yesterday and that it is a completely sui generis case.

    The lesson that Honduras gave the world yesterday is clear: even if a President has been elected democratically and legitimately, he has no right to disobey the Constitution and the laws of the Republic. Peoples are no longer willing to tolerate such abuses of power by constitutional Presidents, who are often considered untouchable by the very fact that they have been elected by the people. The message from Honduras is simple: the popular vote does not include a license to commit a crime, and any effort to govern for the common good must be within the framework of the law.

    Probably, the Hondurans have not realized the magnitude of what they did yesterday. With the passing of the days, the months and years will assimilate and understand the dimension of the new paradigm they have seated, with a resounding message to their own and strangers about what it holds for constitutional dictators and their tropical apprentices. He who has ears, let him hear.

  12. Well the fault is honey and his cronies allied with the devil chavez plus the Honduran oligarchs ferrari, canahuati, facusse, nasser as they see all non Indians who have us in poverty that God will hold us together CONFESSED

  13. I only know that God has control of the whole situation in the country of Honduras, and we are sure that he knows the truth, and how far he will let things go, and sure, that he will take justice, God resists the proud, and give gifts to the umildes,

  14. Friend Alvarez:

    It does not seem polite to me to say what you should do in your country. I do not intend to.
    I just want to share some things I learned from having lived a single dictatorship (of the many that my country suffered, Argentina).
    That dictatorship (1976-1982), took the power missing 9 months for the Government of Isabel Martínez finalizara. It was a bad government, but what came was 10.000 times worse. It was an excuse. The bad governments, alone, pass and do not return. If a bad government or ruler commits crimes, for that there exists the law and all its resources.
    In 2001 Argentina lived one of the worst economic and social crises in its history. With say that in 10 days there were as 7 (if I remember correctly) different Presidents. There was police repression and even death. The President did not finish his term. I quit. But at no time was a coup d'état thought. No one was taken out of the country. Several steps were taken to see how the institutionality was maintained. No President arising out of a party outside the law is durable. An elected President can be bad, make mistakes, but he has to act within the law, and if he leaves, the same law will fall on him. Today, former president Carlos Menem is still marching through various court cases. The same as De La Rua (who did not finish his term in the 2001). Nobody cares if they were presidents. Precisely, with more reason, they must explain everything that is necessary in the Tribunals.
    The thing to have is Patience. Justice always comes. Never as fast as we want, but have faith.
    No matter how bad a government elected by the people, it will never be as bad as a dictatorship.
