No doubt, Chávez wants to be reelected and get more power than he has now. It doesn´t look good for democracy. Jaime Saldarriaga 17:32, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Its a sad day because i thought after decades of us medaling Venezuela was gunna be happy with its anti-us socialist democracy, but now it looks like theyre going to slip into comunism! It's a shame i really liked the socialist for having the balls to stand up against bush, but suspect he'll get his powers partly because of the (us backed) interventions trying to overthrow him twice, were fought against by people not police! I don't see it as a failure of democracy tho, if they choose to vote him in thats how democracy works (not like WWII where he tricked his way into power). We can only hope that the leader doesn't commit atrocities in order to keep the power the next time the US try and intervene (its not even worth thinking that they wont):(

That smell...Edit

Hugo Chavez smells like sulfur! Contralya 05:57, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

It's penalty of U.S. to Chavez for his attitude against Bush government.

  • No. It proves that Bush is right to put him on the 'beyond the axis of evil' list. He supports Castro, and people in south America like to follow him. He is south America's Stalin. I mean, the administrations of lots of south American nations just love him. They really think that the war in Iraq is justification for thinking the U.S. is evil. The next president of the USA needs to set south America straight, to start off, there need to be democratic revolutions in Cuba and Venezuela. Contralya 17:40, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps thats why everyone loves them. The US keeps trying to impose their will on them, and they keep telling the US where they can go. Bawolff 19:47, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Hayek is smilingEdit

His thesis point is proven yet another time. Socialism leads to tyranny. [1] Fephisto 18:13, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
