Correa has done nothing to create any new jobs. has added a 35% luxury tax on imported items that everyday Ecuadorians use. He loves power and while he hands out carrots, is turning Ecuador into a socialist state, Chavez style.

Also for the first time this year, the government is controlling the schools in another way, buy proving the books, so it is controlling what is being taught!

Guayaqull also has a 14% unemployment rate. One of my family members has been unemployed since October 2008 and he is about to become homeless!
