    The line of Chavez lovers is long and they excuse most of what this douche does.

    It will take him destroying his economy or a group of his people to convince them otherwise.

    I may not be the Reagan type but when you see a duck you call it just that.

    He is already threatening them with prison if they challenge his policies.
    That's what happens when you break the law.

    Your assertion that Chavez is a dictator was also pretty thoroughly refuted.

    Considering the pathetic failure of Reagan's neoliberal expansion compared to the economic success of Bolivarian socialism, his Alzheimer's would have been more apparent than usual if he had.

    He didn't say break the law he said challenge.

    You can challenge something in court you know.

    My points were never refuted. If congress votes his way most of the time then he can by proxy be a dictator.

    I don't know how you keep blinding yourself with ideology when history has shown people like him will ultimately fail.

    Whether he's a dictator or not means very little to me. He is a tyrant.

    Better choice of words this time. Technically, he is not a dictator, but he represents the tyranny of the majority in Venezuela.

    I used that word in a previous thread but some still had problems with that.

    Your assessment is correct though.

    Is that so? Which historical tradition of democratic socialism at a decentralized level are you referring to?

    It is not decentralized. So I can't answer a wrongly worded question.
