Chavez's ruling Socialist Party won last weekend's vote by a slim margin, taking 5.45 million votes or 48.9 percent compared with 5.33 million votes or 47.9 percent for the newly united Democratic Unity umbrella group.

That so many people vote for this guy is incredibly disturbing. It is a good reminder that you just can't count on people voting sensibly, even in the face of clear evidence that their politicians of choice are horrible by every measure.

Apparently 5.45 million people in Venezuela who voted for Chavez haven't put 2 and 2 together yet.

Yep. the Communist Ideal can never be even though of as having any flaw in its perfection.

It can only fail if we fail to enforce it rigidly enough.

Double down!

If that fails, double down again, let no man breathe or even think free.

Seeing how they reacted to Scott Brown's win why should we expect anything different?

That's how strong the idea of something for nothing is among leftists and fools. Leftism is for the lazy, angry, and bitter who think society owes them something just for being here.

It's for the worthless, lazy losers and failures who don't want to pull their share. It's for the negative nasty haters. And they all never stop “nattering” also. They're not necessarily “nabobs” either, but more like “naboobs”.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

He will wind up hiding somewhere, like Hussein and Noriega. I don’t think he’s important enough to wind up at the end of a noose, although it could happen.

Chavez got beat up in the elections and learned last week what was on the computers and hard drives that Colombia got when they whacked the FARC. He also saw what happened in Equador when you screw people. He’s SCARED!

“That so many people vote for this guy is incredibly disturbing.”

He’s taken over or destroyed most news media organizations that tried to speak any truth or opposition about his policies.... the average voter there probably hears 24/7 about how wonderful Chavez is and all their problems are due to the tyranny of evil America and capitalism.

Even left-wing media organizations have documented some of this - http://www.cpj.org/2010/02/attacks-on-the-press-2009-venezuela.php

No surprise. It's the growing parasite class that gets something for nothing as long as this thug is in power and there are still at least a few crumbs left to loot. The looting and rise of the parasite class is accelerating here as well.

Actually, probably not. Chavez and his crew have the ultimate ACORN/voter fraud operation going on. Still he probably did get most of those votes. The indigenous and dirt poor still like Chavez in the same way our African American population will vote for a Democrat no matter what. Think DC, Detroit, etc, where the mayors are literally embarrassing yet the people will elect these incompetents overwhelmingly over and over and over. It's just identity politics and Chavez, utter failure that he is, still speaks to the majority poor. Chavez's party actually lost the majority of the vote, yet retain just under 2/3rd of the legislative seats due to the way he and his socialist party rigged the system.

Yup, it is disheartening. I honestly don't think a lot of conservatives and traditional Americans understand how much public opinion has shifted in favor of the social welfare state amongst our rapidly increasing minority populations. California is a frightening omen of what may come to many of our states. That Jerry Brown, a washed up has been with the same old ideas that got California into all this mess in the first place, is running even or ahead of Whitman just goes to show how far gone much of the American public really is.

As long as the food trough is kept full, the voters will either be stuffing their faces or sleeping off their gastronomic indulgences.

From what I understand, these idiots enjoy the purse of the nationalized revenue from the oil sales. What was that famous statement Thomas Jefferson said about when the people find they can get to the purse?

Yup, declining oil revenue as the increasingly state run oil industry slowly collapses. The more Chavez has seized, the worse production has been. This is also happening with pretty much every company/industry that the Venezuelan socialists nationalized. I guess it makes a majority of the people feel good for awhile though, and achieves Chavez's goal of buying off votes.

That’s assuming there is an election.

The only thing left is to become like the dictator in the Woody Allen movie Bananas.

"From this day on, the official language of San Marcos will be Swedish. Silence! In addition to that, all citizens will be required to change their underwear every half-hour. Underwear will be worn on the outside so we can check. Furthermore, all children under 16 years old are now... 16 years old!"/i>

A piece of crap living in darkness wants to feel like it is not so, it can rule. It will be slave of the misfit ideologies of the world blaming others, steeped in Hitlerian grieving and murders, where reverse racism and “class” is manifest.
