So this is the Ecuador where Julian Assange, reigning King of Transparency and Freedom of Press wants to spend his life ? One has to wonder why neither Assange nor any of his mouth puppets have addressed the issue of the state controlled surveillance program currently in effect

Correa has changed the constitution 15 times to his advantage and this is his version of the Penal Code which has been made official very recently. A lot of the amended articles are a shameful attack onto Press freedom and transparency whilst protecting via very light punishment embezzlement and public corruption.

It is safe to say that Correa is a dictator. He also has officially announced that he will not step down from office, he plans to stay in power forever

That is seemingly stupid of Assange to want to move to Ecuador in light of the Penal Code laws against Journalist there. He also was seemingly pleased that Snowden ended up in Russia, another government Assange backs. Both Correa and Putin have a dictator feel to them and both of their governments suppress freedom of information and persecute dissidents. 

   So why is Assange so OK with these dictators and their governments?? In my opinion simply because they are anti US and US western allies. He has shown to be so anti US himself, that I am convinced that is the only reason that these dictators are willing to give him the time of day. But make no mistake, even though those dictators might tolerate him to some means, if he ever steps out of line to some disadvantage to them, they would smash him with less feeling than killing a fly.
