Honduras, a democratic, non-socialist nation removed their President in a legal impeachment procedure after President Mel Zelaya attempted to institute a referendum that would amend the Honduran constitution, allowing Zelaya to serve beyond his legal term limit. However, Zelaya had no legal authority to do this, and the Honduran Supreme Court ruled the referendum illegal. When Zalaya persisted, ignoring the Supreme Court's order, the Supreme Court ordered him removed from office by the Honduran military. Governmental rule was then immediately handed over to a civilian authority.
Zelaya is an ally of both Fidel Castro of Cuba and Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, two communist leaders; it is believed that Zelaya was attempting to thwart Honduran law in order to install a far left government in Honduras. With his removal, Honduran democracy was preserved.
Barack Obama and his administration have sided with Castro and Chavez in calling for Zelaya's reinstatement. Once again Barack Obama shows his true colors; he is no friend of freedom and the sooner he can be legally removed from office, the better it will be for America and the rest of the free world.
Leftwing bloggers and pundits are saying that Zelaya's legal impeachment was a "coup." But it was not a coup at all.
