    Coming from one of the most violent countries in America, Guatemala, I beg my country men to choose wisely. Military governments have been close to genocide in our precious land. They have raped us, burned us, torured us. Especially our Indian/ethnic population, one of the last world cultural treasures. In the 1980’s entire villages were burned down to ashes, massacres were routine. Let’s not make the mistake of voting for a man who is directly resposible a horrible espisode in our country’s history. One that is still having negative and violent consequences in our society today. Please be informed. Do not vote for a muderer!
