Your Tax Dollars At Work "Promoting" Democracy
One of its member groups, the Generation for Change. Generacion Por Cambio describes (also found here) itself as "a politically independent organization of young adults" with "the primary objective of defending the Honduras Constitution and the rule of law against the administration of Manuel Zelaya Roslales and his Executive Branch of Government."
Generacion Por Cambio is a recipient of USAID funding for the development of democracy in Honduras. Gee, we spent money supporting a group that just came out in favor of the suspension of constitutional guarantees? Guess that was money well spent.
