    Does this mean you take Chavez serious and deny that he's a loon?

    I take him seriously mainly because he is doing great things for his country and turning his country in the right direction.

    Revised the constitution to allow him to implement any measures deemed to be of national interest and criminalize dissent

    Eliminated term constitutional limits so that he can be “president” forever and claims he will hold on to power until 2049 when he will turn 95

    Expropriates private land, businesses and any assets he wants, particularly those who have politically opposed/resisted his power grab.

    Is quashing dissenting views by nationalizing the media (taking control of it), arresting, murdering and intimidating political opposition

    Established the Consejo Nacional Electoral (CNE) (National Electoral Council) and stacked it with 5 out of 6 members who are completely loyal to him and will do his bidding. Venezuelan law requires the CNE to prohit anyone who has been accused or convicted of corruption from running for political office so Chavez just has the CNE accuse any serious potential political opponents of corruption, thereby insuring he can stack the courts and congress with people loyal to him and insuring he will never face a viable opposition candidate for president.

    He controls the police, military and other armed groups and uses them to arrest, murder and intimidate, as well as sieze assets he deems “in the national interest”

    Quite possible, but again...not our problem. Venezuelans have to resolve that issue

    Like Qaddaffi, he's pissing those OIL revenues away on social programs. Does that make him next on the NATO sh*t list. He must be a loon. The major media tells me so. The major media bought and paid for by Corporate USA. Isn't it amazing how successful the media is in adjusting perception. More sock puppets. Can't think for themselves.

    Yeah, because runaway inflation, arbitrary detention of political opponents, denial of ballow access and shutting down media that oppose you are such great things. Nice to see that this is what you support. It tells us not to take anything else you say seriously...

    I thought the OP would be the funniest part of this thread. I guess it was the second funniest and unbelievable thing in here.

    Hmmm! Now that you mention it, some of those things might work in this country. Shut down any "alleged" NEWS media that lies. Lock up some of the more flagrant "NEWS" nutters. The inflation is already here. Does anybody lie about the money and banking crisis? We are taxing the poor and subsidizing the wealthy in this country and that's seems to be OK with you. I don't know what a ballow access is , but I'll probably want one if the Media thinks my perception needs to be adjusted to want one. It appears to me that Chavez thinks "Corporatism" is bad for his country.. I agree and think "Corporatism" is bad for this country. I'm not a blind patriot. I think. The corporate hand is up your legislative sock puppets derrierre.
