Chavez is the best thing that ever happened to Venezuela. Why do you think he has been elected 7 times. Don't tell me you're one of those morons that believes what the "Media" lies about hime, are you? You've got to be smarter than that. Or not?
    If he's that good, maybe we can get someone like that elected here...Oh wait....

    They have had a chance to remove him for eight years (via elections and the option of a recall referendum) and choose not to.

    Chavez has virtually destroyed this country....

    There is no exaggerating the extent of Venezuela’s decline and fall. The wealthiest country per capita in Latin America is sinking deeper and deeper into what must inevitably be bankruptcy, as everything fiscal goes wrong. The result will be equally bad for Hugo Chavez, first elected president in 1999 and now in 2010 a full-fledged autocrat.

    Not a single sector is prospering. On the contrary, agriculture, business and industry are all in dire straits. The country’s dominant industry, petroleum, suffers at every level from mismanagement, financial milking by the government and corruption. Capricious, wasteful spending by Chavez, at home and abroad, has left the country’s finances in severely critical condition and crippled effective financing of the private sector.

    Venezuela's Agrarian Land Reform: More like Lincoln than Lenin

    Venezuela's Agrarian Land Reform: More like Lincoln than Lenin | venezuelanalysis.com

    "The Right Throws a Fit
    The prospect of Chavez’s “revolutionary” government supporting hundreds of thousands of machete-wielding campesinos as they shout “fuera los ingleses” (out with the English) has provoked a spate of somewhat hysterical editorials by conservative Caracas and U.S. commentators. Frequently, much of what is written in the U.S. press on the subject is simply inaccurate or egregious hyperbole, which eventually gets passed off as gospel. For example, though the New York Times got it right, the Christian Science Monitor wrote in an editorial that “The plan supposedly applies to both private and governmental agricultural holdings, but so far only private lands are being targeted.” While that statement is demonstrably false, the Washington Post – ominously reminding its readers that Chavez is a “disciple of Castro” – noted that the “assault on private property is merely the latest step in what has been a rapidly escalating ‘revolution’ by Venezuela's president that is undermining the foundations of democracy and free enterprise.” Carlos Ball of the CATO Institute flatly declares in his piece, “Chavez’s Land Grab,” that in the Bolivarian Republic, “Private property is history.” Although, as of today, no privately owned land has been redistributed to the landless poor by the government, the rightwing and its media lapdogs seem mighty nervous over any possible change in the status quo of Venezuela’s landed elite. But before dismissing Chavez as another Castro, it would behoove one to analyze the Venezuelan land barons and the history of agriculture in the country since the oil boom began in order to determine just how radical the president’s land reform plan really is.

    Some people choose to educate themselves and others embrace ignorance like a badge of honor. Eh?

    Venezuela isn't important to anyone in the United States. Why would it be, it's just another inconsequential country with a loudmouth for a president. If you ask any American college graduate, he couldn't even pick out Venezuela on a map, tell you the capitol, the religion or the system of government.

    Chavez and Venezuela are kept in the media in the United States so that the elitist liberal types can have a touchstone to worship socialism without actually having to participate in the death and destruction.

    Chavez Cancer "Not Good" Returns to Cuba for Treatment

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has returned to Cuba for treatment after admitting a relapse of his cancer and designating Vice President Nicolas Maduro as his heir apparent in case "something happened" to him.
    Chavez returned to Cuba on Monday, where he was greeted at the airport by the president, Raul Castro.


    Speaking on national television late on Saturday, an emotional Chavez had announced a return of cancer cells had been during his last visit to Cuba for medical examination, and he would be returning to the island for a fourth round of surgery.


    "During this thorough examination, they again detected some malignant cells in the same area as before," Chavez said.


    He did not offer details, but his cancer was first detected in the pelvic area. Neither the Venezuelan leader, nor his Cuban doctors have ever disclosed what kind of cancer that was.


    Chavez admitted he was suffering "somewhat strong" pain and was taking tranquilizers as part of preparation for his upcoming surgery.

    Chavez also said that in the event of him becoming incapacitated, Maduro would step in and assume control of the government for the rest of the 2013-2019 term, as required by the constitution.

    Apparently after Chavez thought he was well he has felt pain and detected more malignant cells in the same area as before. He has announced his successive if something were to happen to him. I hope everything goes well with the next treatment for Chavez and Venezuela keeps on the path they are heading.

    I'm 100% in agreement on this matter. Chavez is the best thing to have happened to Venezuela in the last 200 years. Of course, the CIA hates him, so Anything Time Warner and Associated Press and 400 other CIA assetts will generate bad press about him. Funny how the CIA and Citizens of the USA can have such completely divergent agendas,

    So much for having faith in the people, I never graduated college and I could tell you all of that, it is like basic geography. I am a blue collar worker, and plenty of the people I work with are informed enough to know that, maybe it is because lots of us listen to NPR.... Venezuela is also far more important to the commercial and social interests of the united states than you estimate.

    And your hate for liberals is amusing at, a tragic ignorance of reality though.
