Long live the Republic! Because Star Wars showed us that Empires are bad.

But seriously, I don't think badly about any country because they have a crappy government, but I don't think torching buildings, burning cars, and throwing molotov cocktails at the Presidential motorcade is necessarily helpful either. It sounds to me like you guys need a special election to oust some bozos. Put down the torches and pitchforks and pick up some picket signs and try a peaceful march. It works well enough here. But then again, we overthrow our government every four to eight years at the ballot box anyway.
