“Let Spain Decide”

IsabelOn writes [es] on her blog De sonrisas y espadas [On smiles and swords] about Juan Carlos, King of Spain, abdication:

ahora que se abre un debate de “Monarquía vs República”, “Felipe sí, Felipe no”, “Referéndum sí o no”, todos pongamos de nuestra parte y apliquemos una de las máximas que tuvieron Juan Carlos y Adolfo Suárez: todos entran, incluso los que piensan diferente a nosotros, dejemos que España sea la que luego decida.

[…] now that the debate about “Monarchy vs Republic” is open, “Felipe yes, Felipe no”, “Referendum yes or no”, we all shall give 100% and let's use one of Juan Carlos and [recently late former president] Adolfo Suárez mottos: everybody is in, even those who think differently, let's leave Spain be who decides.
