Suppose a player has a flipped hacendado with its white end to the top and a matching private army. During a topple he chooses to rotate the card to its other colour (i.e. not white) what happens to the army? Is it immediately discarded?

I don't think you can do that. Flipping the card is permenant. You can't just go around changing you political ideology willy-nilly...this isn't like real life politics!

That is correct, when you flip you are permanently committed to one faction.

There is indeed a difference in politics between 100 years ago and today. In Porfirian Mexico, you must actually publish a plan, the details of which are widely discussed, very influential, and not easily altered. Not like a 5 second sound bite.
