    Things are not always as balanced and fair they appear, for example, the result of the referendum to recall Chavez whose numbers some believe were skewed and a fraud* was committed. This led to an abysmal existence for those who believed Chavez and his promises.

    The president, an unsuccessful military-coup-monger, is always uncomfortable with democracy. The constitution devised by him in 1999 made the CNE an independent branch of government, but Mr Chávez constantly interferes in its affairs, warning it against validating “illegal” signatures and ordering it to reconfigure itself before organising any referendum.

    Those who dared to support the recall are also being singled out for persecution by public-sector employers, including ministries, the armed forces and the powerful state oil corporation, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA). Although the previous CNE would not publish the names of the signatories, the database containing the names and identity-card numbers of those who signed an earlier petition, delivered last November, was leaked to Luis Tascón, a legislator from Mr Chávez's Fifth Republic Movement (MVR). Mr Tascón published them on his website, and threatens to do the same with the latest batch.

    The first to suffer the consequences were military officers, subjected to disciplinary hearings and even discharged for signing, though the 1999 constitution gives them almost the same political rights as civilians. Then came PDVSA. The oil corporation had already ,sacked over 18,000 workers for striking in December and January, and had forced its contractors to deny them jobs. Now PDVSA is using the referendum database to filter applicants for work. The man in charge of personnel is Asdrubal Chávez the president's second cousin; he declined to answer questions.

    The 1999 constitution outlaws discrimination on the basis of political beliefs. It obliges the state to punish violations of human rights. And, to keep the authorities honest, it creates yet another branch of government, the so-called “moral power”, which includes the office of an ombudsman, or “defender of the people”. Unfortunately, Germín Mundaraín, who holds the job now, is slavishly obedient to the government. He has, he says, received no complaints about this kind of job discrimination. Meanwhile, according to several current and former members of his staff, he himself is carrying out a purge of opposition supporters in his office.

    And why has his programs he implemented lead to this?
    That is a wonderful report and a very positive move toward real economic power on the international stage. However it is only a snapshot of an aspect of society, albeit very important, but not the whole picture. There needed to be more information regarding personal freedoms, opportunities for the everyday person to achieve and grow.

    *The Venezuelan recall referendum of 15 August 2004 was a referendum to determine whether Hugo Chávez, the current President of Venezuela, should be recalled from office. The official result of the referendum was not to recall Chávez (41% yes), but a peer-reviewed scientific study found that the yes vote in reality was 56.4%. The fraud has later been confirmed by 6 peer-reviewed papers published in special section of Statistical Science (Vol 26, Nr 4).

    No it's not bad enough. He needs to keep on suffering.

    That's because ALL LIBERALS are uncivilized and of course they support a heinious ruthless dictator because Liberals hate freedom and self determination.

    Re: Chavez's cancer has 'entered the end stage'

    The current economic expansion began when the government got control over the national oil company in the first quarter of 2003. Since then, real (inflationadjusted) GDP has nearly doubled, growing by 94.7 percent in 5.25 years, or 13.5 percent annually.
    Most of this growth has been in the nonoil sector of the economy, and the private sector has grown faster than the public sector.

    During the current economic expansion, the poverty rate has been cut by more than half, from 54 percent of households in the first half of 2003 to 26 percent at the end of 2008. Extreme poverty has fallen even more, by 72 percent. These poverty rates measure only cash income, and does not take into account increased access to health care or education.
    Over the entire decade, the percentage of households in poverty has been reduced by 39 percent, and extreme poverty by more than half.

    Inequality, as measured by the Gini index, has also fallen substantially. The index has fallen to 41 in 2008, from 48.1 in 2003 and 47 in 1999. This represents a large reduction in inequality.

    Real (inflation adjusted) social spending per person more than tripled from 1998-2006.

    From 1998-2006, infant mortality has fallen by more than onethird. The number of primary care physicians in the public sector increased 12fold from 1999-2007, providing health care to millions of Venezuelans who previously did not have access.

    There have been substantial gains in education, especially higher education, where gross enrollment rates more than doubled from 1999/2000 to 2007/2008.

    The labor market also improved substantially over the last decade, with unemployment dropping from 11.3 percent to 7.8 percent. During the current expansion it has fallen by more than half. Other labor market indicators also show substantial gains.

    Over the past decade, the number of social security beneficiaries has more than doubled.

    Over the decade, the government's total public debt has fallen from 30.7 to 14.3 percent of GDP. The foreign public debt has fallen even more, from 25.6 to 9.8 percent of GDP.

    Inflation is about where it was 10 years ago, ending the year at 31.4 percent. However it has been falling over the last half year (as measured by threemonth averages) and is likely to continue declining this year in the face of strong deflationary pressures worldwide.

    I'm so sorry if you're offended by my comments about your murdering dictator hero but I'm neither Republican nor Conservative nor do I listen to Rush. I'm a FAIR and BALANCED Independent swing voter.

    You're just proved your typical LIberal ignorance.

    I wonder if Chavez will drop out of being the leader if he is dying.
