It was never about Zelaya's re-election

All the talk about an "Asamblea Nacional Constituyente" before and after the events where Zelaya was removed from office was not about this nefarious person re-election. No, it was in the end about getting rid of representative democracy by eliminating our Constitution and being able to put in its place a regime akin to those of the ALBA countries. The leaders of the "Resistencia" vision is/was for Honduras becoming a country based on 21st century socialism predicated by Hugo Chavez, Evo Morales, Correa and Ortega and the other followers of the brothers Castro.

This is important to understand as the current discussions led by President Lobo are underway in Tegucigalpa. Luis Consenza Jimenez has a similar opinion in his article ?Constituyente? in Proceso Digital. Another interesting article in Diario La Tribuna by Lic. Federico Alvarez makes some suggestions if by any chance the Asamblea Nacional Constituyente becomes a reality in our political future.

I completely concur in Lic. Alvarez request to see a serious analysis on what is wrong with our constitution and a formal proposal by the "Resistencia" on what they want changed in this document, BEFORE we move on on further discussions. I am afraid our requests will be lost in the wind, as there is no real interest in this groups' to submit any formal proposals....they then expose themselves to criticism...rather leave things hanging out there in a nebulous cloud... I can be wrong....prove me wrong please...
