    I heard that the Kenyan-born Muslim President is behind it all.

    If Chavez dies, I hope he doesn't take all that oil with him to socialist heaven!

    Alot of dictators do this, now I don't know if its the answer, but it makes sense to me
    Chavez is the man who has been most instrumental in destroying the lives of productive professionals who made Venezuela the pre-Chavez, modern country (prior to Chavez taking them back to the Stone Age) that it used to be. Perhaps Chavez rightfully fears putting his lives in the hands of some of the medical professionals who remain in Venezuela!

    The two big trends here are the explosive rise of Chile and the decline of Venezuela. Chile's economy has grown almost threefold: 193%. Venezuela's wealth per capita shrank by nearly 7%.

    And being in the electric power business, I love this one:
    CARACAS, June 13 (Reuters) - Venezuela set new sanctions on Monday for high electricity consumers as the South American OPEC member nation faces power cuts for a second year.

    Very true. In virtually every social/economic index, Venezuela has tumbled into the third world strata.

    I came up with a theory, its not concrete, its just based on my observations of dictatorships behaviour, the physchology of dictators and an educated guess.
    I would state that it is a sour grapes attitude and a guess caused by a lack of education. Pretty concrete. Chavez is the guy that just made a deal to get a million kalishnakovs because of a threat of invasion from the USA. I think he should have clued in Qaddaffi. Looks like his reasoning faculties are functioning perfectly, Chavez's faculties, that is. Is there OIL in Venezuela?

    Going to Cuba for quality healthcare would be like going to Wal-Mart for a quality 3 piece suit. Good luck Chaves, NOT!

    Umm....
    The Chávez Administration at 10 Years: The Economy and Social Indicators | venezuelanalysis.com

    There's a center for economic policy research link in there.

    Did you know that IMF projections on Venezuela is one of the biggest bones of contention over the politicization of the IMF's projections? Venezuela doesnt look so bright in some places but from the lowest denomination human aspect things are actually much brighter for the vast majority of Venezuelans. Alot of the economic hubbub doesnt apply to Ven, they're an oil rentier state.

    Also blackouts were common several times a week before Chavez. 70% of electricity came from one hydroelectric dam.

    Suspected Sabotage of Electric System

    The Energy and Mining Commission of the Venezuelan National Assembly announced that it will open an investigation of eight Colombian ex-military employees who were detained earlier this week on suspicion of spying after they were caught taking pictures of Venezuela’s electricity infrastructure.

    “There is a series of facts that demonstrate that the denunciations with regard to sabotage have basis,” said National Assembly President Cilia Flores.

    The Colombians were found in possession of satellite equipment and camera images of various electricity stations, transmission lines, and transport infrastructure around the country.

    President Chavez said the Colombians’ activities were part of “the desperate counter-attack of the empire,” referring to the United States, which is Colombia’s chief ally and recently expanded its continental espionage and military surveillance from seven Colombian bases. “Without a doubt, this is part of the seven U.S. military bases in Colombia,” Chavez said.

    Simply look up the Freedom Index, the Democracy Index, the Media Index, Economic Freedom Index, etc.

    Most of Latin America is in love with socialism and always have been. They are also Europhiles.

    Peru's newly elected left-winger Humala affirms this
