The trick is we like to change governments by voting them out of office, most other people like to do it this way too.
Now here is the really hard part, listen up Republicans this is for you. Even if you don't like the guy who wins the election that's just the way things go. No use claiming the other side cheated or make up excuses for doing bad things, just think about why the people didn't vote for you.
The Chavez coup of a few years ago was a case in point. Bush was noticably silent. By their silence (and by whispering) they endorsed the undemocratic coup, so we turned a socialist loud mouth into a cause celeb around the hemisphere and hardened anti US support in Venezuala.
Notice so far we have a total of one US senator saying he thinks the coup was a good deal. I mean there is a reason the world and the entire US government minus one cable news channel and one Alaskan bear hunter think that a military coup is a good thing.
And no, the guys who took over the presidential palace and beat up the president who hadn't finished the term he was elected to weren't the legislature or the supreme court, they were the army. Kind of quaint how all basic civil rights have been suspended.
Face it, bad call on Expatriate's part. Not everything on Fox news is gospel, or even a good idea.
