Falsely Accused Of Being A Dictator

If a leader got there by democratic election, if he has to face another election within 6 years, if he has support of the majority of the people it really makes no sense to call him a dictator. Yet American branded Allende, and Chavez dictators solely because they were no fan of Republican economics. On the contrary, Americans prop up even the most vicious unprincipled dictators if they subscribe to Milton Friedman’s be-nice-to-the-rich-and-bastards-to-the-poor economic theories.
