    Revolt
    More people dislike Bush in Latin-American than ChavezÀ¢€¦.wow, thatÀ¢€™s the kind of ignorance that has allowed Chavez to gain so much power in the region. Now he is influencing Bolivia. The people of that region need to revolt. For example, EstoniaÀ¢€™s Singing Revolution (http://singingrevolution.com) inspired people in the region to revolt against Russia. ItÀ¢€™s time to revolt before it gets worse.
