Re: Hugo Chávez re-elected president in Venezuela

If there ever was a revolution or more likely a global disaster of some kind and the PC rules no longer applies, they and their families would be slaughtered like sheep.

That's what they don't understand.

Re: Hugo Chávez re-elected president in Venezuela

If Chavez was the democrat the lefty fanbois claim he is, he would have step aside and let someone from his party run for President; doesn't matter what is your political ideology, having a Head of State for over 20 years is not healthy, Venezuela is no better than a monarchy and at least european monarchs nowadays have no actual political power nor rule the country like it is their own playground.

I was in Venezuela not long ago and the situation is not exactly the best, they have money due to the oil bonanza but since there isn't much industry apart from it, they barely produce the things they need, most of the goods Venezuelan people consume come from Colombia, Argentina and Brazil and some stuff is very scarce.

If it wasn't for oil, Venezuela would be another Zimbabwe.

Your President has connections with those terrorists/professors from the documentary. The majority of people elected him, and they have guns as well.

Re: Hugo Chávez re-elected president in Venezuela

A majority of people who voted elected him. A lot of people, including myself, do not vote because there is no real choice. They are all self-serving PC hacks.

Lol I guess that's the difference between Protestants and Catholics, and that's why the Dalai Lama is so respected in the West, he who escaped his country without even resisting.

We, Catholics, can endure pain and suffering. We can go underground and enter resistance like my ancestors of 1940 did. Protestants, like atheists, are unable to sacrifice their lives for a good cause, unable to any kind of patriotism and social belonging. They just want to enjoy themselves, period. And for this, they could enter a nomadic life, fleeing from country to country, but they can't be grounded.

I am a monarchist, so obviouly I have to disagree with all of this.

I ask those present
if you have ever thought
that this land is ours
and not from the one who has more

I ask if in this land
have you ever thought
that if these hands are ours
it's ours what they give us

So take out the wire, take out the wire!
For the land belongs to us
to you and to them
to Peter, Mary, Joan and Joseph

If I bother with my singing
To someone who doesn't want to listen
I assure you it's a gringo
or an owner of this country

Echoes, you really need to read and try to understand people's posts/opinions before replying to them. It was exactly the same when we discussed CdG and France's relationship to NATO. You never read my posts properly or tried to understand my opinion.

I'm a catholic. I was also happy to be brought up under the English monarchy. I also would hate to leave the country I was born in for political reasons.

Re: Hugo Chávez re-elected president in Venezuela

You have to understand that just because you have elections does not mean that it is a democracy. In Venezuela there is no separation of powers and elections are not fair. The government uses all the resources of the state to his favor. We live in a country rich in natural resources but poor in the economic social and educational. We have thousands of deaths annually, basic food shortage, high inflation, high unemployment, political prisoners, have no legal or personal safety, highest corruption ever, infrastructure in poor condition, with bridges falling off, roads are almost impassable, and accidents in the oil industry happen very often. We used to be a country that received people from other countries, but now our people are migrating to other countries, there is a big brain drain here... Anyway I could be here all night telling you all the bad things that are happening here. Hugo Chavez is the worst thing that that ever happened to us.

That's great because at that time you just said I reminded you of Nazi nostalgics, just because I made a parallel between the EU and Nazi Germany on the fact that the elected government no longer decided but the supranational authority, which is perfectly true.

And I'm not ready to easily forgive being associated with Nazi nostalgics, without any reason.

By the way, thereafter you approved a post which considered me a CT, while I was only bringing up verifiable facts.

But for me, it's not a matter hate. There's no question I would ever do it, whatever the government.
Your country, you like it or you improve it.

But people living more comfortably in other South American countries will applaud Venezuela for its Anti-Americanism. The actual suffering of its citizens is irrelevant to them. It is a lot of fun to see Chavez hanging out with Amahdinejad.
I lived in Cuba for 10 years, so I know where your country is headed.
