"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Deposed President Zelaya at Honduras' Border

According to the AP: "Ousted President Manuel Zelaya has stepped across the border into his homeland and says he will reclaim his post a month after soldiers flew him into exile.

"Zelaya says he was forced to act on his own after U.S.-backed talks failed to reach a negotiated settlement with the coup-installed government to reinstate him.

"That government has vowed to arrest him if he tries to return."

Zelaya with the backing of Hugo Chavez and Daniel Ortega seems absolutely determined to institute a "strong man" style of government over Honduras' constitution, congress and supreme court. This is a true test of constitutional democracy and the rule of law.

*note the language of the article "coup-installed government" and "ousted President."
