I was driving with a couple of my Burmese friends yesterday and we couldn’t help but notice all the political signs posted for various candidates. I told them there had be a debate between the presidential candidates last night. These folks have fled from a stifling military junta that has held power over Burma for decades. I explained how we would vote on November 4th to elect a new president and that this person would take office in January. One of the gentleman said to me America is really something, you have elections!!
