Wow! I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this site before.
The concept behind SoloPromesas.com is disarmingly simple: the site aggregates promises made publicly by various office-holders in Venezuela over the years. No editorializing – beyond what’s implicit in the logo – and no comment.
Did you remember, say, that back in October 2010, Chávez had promised us a factory to build small satellites would be running by 2012 in Borburata? (Me neither.)
It’s a simple – too simple? – form of accountability. A kind of accountability distillate.
