Zimbabwe =/= South Africa. This kind of ignorance is how we ended up with Trump in the first place.

There's just something deeply amusing about someone called Worldtraveller mixing up South Africa and Zimbabwe. :D

Wait, I thought Brazil was Spain?

Also, on topic...what are the odds that democracy will actually break out in Zimbabwe, or is it more likely that they'll wind up with another dictator/military strongman type in charge?

You anti-freedom piece of ignorance, the premise of the US Constitution was to not have power change hands by violence.  

It reads like a Poe, but I think you dumb ass shitheads actually want a violent overthrow of a peaceful government.   Go fuck off and kill yourself.
