Referendums threaten non democracy

So the referendum in Catalonia is unconstitutional? A vote for Kurdish sovereignty is illegal? A collective initiative can be UNILATERAL?! These complaints don't sound very democratic... Communities wanting the right to self determination is the point of governments from the people's point of view. Rulers only care about taxes and fealty, but have to sell it like their population's consensus. Brexit was xenophobic and retrograde apparently, not the desire for emmancipation.

Venezuelans kick D.C. in the butt

Venezuela's Chavez wins vote to allow re-election All that control over the press and the Gringos still can't convince the Venezuelans to let them back into the country once again! Don't cry for D.C. though, since they'll just keep trying, keep trying, and let's hope they just keep crying, Latin America. Next election victory will be in El Salvador next month. Goodbye, D.C.! Take your Monroe Doctrine and stuff it!
