Honduras Votes For Democracy

According to the Wall Street Journal Hondurans turned out in record numbers Sunday to elect their new conservative president Porfirio Lobo. This is great news and hopefully a lesson learned for both the State Department and the Obama administration. It shows that people want freedom not leftist socialism
From the WSJ

Neither of the two men claiming to be president during the past five months – Mr. Zelaya and interim President Roberto Micheletti – were on the ballot. Instead, Hondurans picked between Mr. Lobo of the conservative National Party and Elvin Santos of the Liberal Party – to which both Mr. Zelaya and Mr. Micheletti belong.
Voters were expected to punish the Liberal Party for the crisis and hand power to Mr. Lobo, who was narrowly beat by Mr. Zelaya four years ago.
“It’s going to be Pepe this time,” said Higenio Garcia Ponce, 74, an agricultural laborer who said he had just voted for Mr. Lobo. “There was a rupture in the Liberal Party over what happened with Zelaya.”

I'm with ya brother! I like the theme, layout and content of your blog. I'm at Forward OBserver: Peering from a fox hole... this isn't a link, but if you want you can google it to find it.

The problem with my blog is I've got so many interests that it ends up a hodge-podge (sp?) of subjects. I have a difficult time staying focused on a theme... Nice job to you!
Nice F-15 Photo too.

love to see this discussion! It’s great to see you all working through the issues and also, it’s great to see recommendations for testing. In the end, it’s what your actual users do and prefer that should be your biggest driver in making these decisions.
