In the event that Venezuela decides (or is claimed to have decided) to leave the Free World this weekend, I suggest we throw a party while there is still time. If Chavez succeeds in becoming a Communist dictator, then after the oil money dries up through the incompetence of the Party hacks and Chavez ass-kissers who are put in charge, Venezuelans will be able to look forward to many new delights, including:

Getting up early to go the corner and stand in line for the one bread roll that the government proudly provides to each citizen on a daily basis.
Finding a black market supplier of milk for one's children.
No personal Internet use.
Curling up with the one and only newspaper that is permitted in the country. They might call it Granpa. (In Cuba the Party paper sometimes printed recipes for nice dishes. The fun-loving Cubans told me that what Fidel probably expected them to do was cut the recipe out of the paper and boil it for 5 minutes before enjoying.)
Not having to worry about a career. Hugo will decide where you work - if you work.

Well, I could go on, but heck, there are still three days left to party. Go for it. The hangover afterwards might be lifelong.

Hi. I wasn't sure if any Venezuelans came in here. Are you really in Venezuela? If so maybe you can provide us with updates as the week ahead unfolds. I see the streets of Caracas are thronged with anti-Chavistas today.
When a President wants to tinker with the constitution so that he can have more power, you know he has only one thing in mind.

De Gaulle did the same and produced the LEAST democratic constitution of all western countries, François Mitterand (last socialist president) even talked about a "coup d"etat". Ultimately the people voted for it, and that's what counts.

When a president starts making anti-democractic decisions like forbidding freedom of speech or changing the constitution to suit his interests, then it's irrelevant whether he was elected by the majority of the population or not.
