Despite a series of mostly political setbacks, between 2006 and 2009 the Morales administration has spurred growth higher than at any point in the preceding 30 years. The growth was accompanied by a moderate decrease in inequality. A surplus budget of 1.7% (GDP) was obtained by 2012, the government runs surpluses since Morales administration reflecting a prudent economic management.

Kind of weird that the wave of conservatism that is sweeping South America is being spurred on by the CIA. The same CIA that has supposedly been working against Donald Trump and Conservatism in America.
But that’s none of my business.

The same goes for the supposedly socialist media. They're trying to paint a picture that Morales is 100% guilty of election fraud while his supporters are responsible for all the violence. Completely ignoring that Morales offered to bring in independent monitors to verify the election results. Completely ignoring the fact that it was the opposition that formed roving gangs that have assaulted Morales supporters and attacked pro-Morales politicians.
