whether you like chavez and/or fujimori or not. at least these two know that democracy, western-style (in particular american style) does not work for all other countries, especially latin american countries.
latin american countries that continue along the path to "democracy" only find that it leads to more control to the people with the money and only breeds more corruption.
the "democracy" is always in the interests of the big businesses and foreign governments that want to do international trade with the "democracy".
unfortunately, whether you are fujimori, or chavez, or castro and you want to try an alternative path, which could benefit the people, you are immediately persecuted by the same big businesses and foreign governments that would rather bring the country to its knees rather than let it follow its own route to a real democracy.
the dominican republic's case is a little worrying, in that since the death of balaguer and the demise (and death) of juan bosch, all our political leaders are western-style democracy 'yes' men, who don't have the bottle to implement something different. hipolito thught he could, but he wanted to get rich doing it - so he failed dismally.
