Corrupt leaders and dishonest parties have no place in a democracy. The people of Thailand are pushing this fact forward. Well, Thaksin Shinawatra didn't have the cleanest record, but a change of government from the PPP is a good idea, in my opinion.
I don't think it could have been said any better. Now, granted, this isn't the BEST way to go about it, as it's going to create even more disorganization and promote more violence, but it's a step in the right direction- getting the power that was wrongly taken by a group, and giving it back to the people.
