U.S. legislators must take a stand for democracy and freedom. It is time to send a clear message to Latin America that the U.S. remains part of the Americas, and that stability and democratic evolution in all of the Americas is of major concern to the U.S. government and its people. If the U.S. no longer wishes to be viewed as supporting only authoritarian regimes in the area, it must promote its image as an advocate of democracy among the affected countries. There is no better place to start than Honduras.
