    Voters in Chile rejected a brand new proposed Constitution that would have made the conservative Latin American country into one of the most far-left countries in the world.

    The New York Times noted that the new Constitution would have legalized abortion, mandated universal government-run healthcare, promoted woke gender initiatives, granted rights to animals and the environment, and would have given them government-provided care "from birth to death," including a right to housing, education, retirement benefits, internet, free legal advice, sanitation and more.

    The extreme Constitution would have also eliminated the country's Senate, something that many on far-left want to happen in the U.S.

    With 96+% of the votes counted, an overwhelming majority of Chileans, almost two-thirds, rejected the attempt to transform the country into a radical leftist social experiment.

    "Today we're consolidating a great majority of Chileans who saw rejection as a path of hope," said Carlos Salinas, a spokesman for the Citizens' House for Rejection. "We want to tell the government of President Gabriel Boric... that 'today you must be the president of all Chileans and together we must move forward."

    The country's rejection of the new Constitution is a major setback for new far-left President Gabriel Boric, whose ruling coalition includes members of Chile's Communist Party.

    Boric announced during a speech a few months ago his intent to completely ban his citizen's ability to protect themselves by owning firearms.

    "I want everyone listening to us to know that gun violence will not be tolerated in our country," he said, according to a translation provided to The Daily Wire. "And that's why our 'Fewer Guns, More Safety' program proposes a radical limitation on their legal access. And from now I'm asking you, this honorable Congress, all of your support to approve a law that allows us to advance toward a total ban on gun ownership."

    Boric's extremist push on restricting the ability to own a gun in his country comes as far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a communist sympathizer, announced late last month a push to ban the sale of handguns.
