Evo is at it Again…

Evo_morales_320 President Evo Morales, of Bolivia, is at it again.  If you remember, earlier this year he took land away from the rich and gave it to the poor.  He has just seized a smelting complex that was owned by a private Swiss company named Glencore.  This is all a part of his plan to even out all of the money in his country.

So our critical question is:  Is taking over businesses in your own country a good idea?  How do you think people will react to this action?

Here’s what we think:

    I think that Evo is just trying to make a diffrence. it might be in a Crazy way but he is trying! i dont think he is doing it the right way though. i think he sould do it in a more peacful manner like create his own smelting plants What Do u Think?

    He’s trying, but when you’re ruling a country and people’s job, it’s not just the thought that counts. If he’s crazy, maybe he shouldn’t be president…or should he.
    After all, the people voted for him and actually like what he did. But since they were really poor and e can help make him richer, they didn’t really think about the trouble he could cause.
    It’s an interesting question. Should the people be able to make these desisions even if they make a bad choice?
    Personally, I think they should. After all, if they vote for this guy, they can’t complain that they don’t like him.
    But what about the company he took over and the people who didn’t vote for him? They are feeling the effects of this too.

    this is a very bad idea beacuse noone is gonna want to go to bolivia to start a franchize beacuise evo might just seize it for bolivia. i think evo has a littel to much power and he sould have to go thorugh many agreements befor a decision is made.
