lol I did. That's why I added the word "funny" at the front of my post.
Why not Chavez he is one of the oil nations and automatically gets a place at the table.
Ever noticed the governments of the west rant and decry Chavez until the subject turns
to oil? Chavez is the fourth largest supplier to America's thirst for oil and and such we
should understand all rights are negotiable according to the price of oil.
Addressing the other issues, Chavez has limited the rights of unions in his home country,
but then again some States in the US have done that recently. If whizz kid Rick gets to
be President, federal union workers in America will be put upon much more that down
The question is why did Chavez do some of the things he did? The system of government
and society was much more corrupt under the former regimes and the poor and some
other groups were frozen out of the decision making process altogether. I am not saying he
is right in all he does but something had to be done to ensure everyone had some voice.
The real problem is that Chavez didn't become a dictator, he gave the vote to millions of
poor people who didn't have a vote, and they flock to the polls to re-elect him its better than
Exactly. And opposition gets arrested... media gets shut down, etc.
