OK lets try that again. Chavez in Venezuela and the recent elections there.
Around and around in this country people seem happy that the guy lost and that it appears that he will not be able to run for re-election. Also that his other reforms lost.
It seems to me that whatever happens in any country south of our border is generally negatively affected by the heavy hand of America and our corporations. I mean lets face it the New York Times cheered when Chavez was overthrown (temporarily) a few years ago. At the time they claimed that the plotters were re-installing democracy by over throwing an elected president. How can we believe what they tell us now. We they say it was a victory for democracy that his reforms were defeated.
I wonder how much money was pumped into that election by us (U.S.?) to distort the process. Just askin.
