What concerns do you have regarding the political climate in Nic? Do you have any concerns regarding property rights and potential property redistribution by a socialist-type political element? Is it true that some major US companies will leave Nic if certain political elements gain control? Does the ex-pat maintain a double minded world-view - whereby, on the one hand, he hopes to maintain the status quo vis a vis the Conservative President Bolanos who runs the country in accordance with US desires and interests (like destroying the old missiles) but which also protects (US like) individual property rights; and on the other hand, the ex-pat also hopes for a more independent Nicaragua that is capable of sustaining itself and caring for it's people and environment on it's own terms? Is it not a little frightening to own property in a country where there is a distinct possibility that with the next election, a group can come in and take your land away? Why would any major multinational companies, say they would pull out if a particular political party gains control? Does a genuine threat to their livelihood in Nic exist? And does not this same contingency threaten the little man's property rights as well? I am sure I oversimplify here. Please share your thoughts on this.
