Is he keeping enough of his parasite base that gets free sh!t happy to stay in power, or is his highly corrupt government just making up election results to mask an actual loss by a populace that has serious remorse about ever putting a tyrant into power? With tyrannical "socialists" - once they get power you just never know anymore.
“The Leader” is speaking from the balcony to a crowd right now. I’m watching it online from Globovision in Venezeuela.
Just like Mussolini.
He’ll be smelling the sulphur for real before his term is out....
Democrats will try to steal the election here in the U.S.A in a few weeks, the same thing here. We have to be vigilant.
Where’s Pinochet when we need him?
It was Stalin.
Well that was unexpected...
For a second I thought it read “Pin Tot Tyrant”.
And Maria Chonchita Alonzo isn’t...
I’m only surprised they bother having an election at all.
Does he anyone but Jimmy Carter think he won fair and square?
No one will ever know what the real vote results were
I wonder why the GOP does not mention 0b0z0’s love of Chavez and ask what has been done in regards to recovering private US oil industry company assets that were taken through Venezuelan seizure and government takeover?
It seems these days tyrants stay in power by holding *elections* - which they *win.*
I guess they think that makes them *look good.*
Our vote is to be counted in Spain, courtesy of Soros. How can we lose.
People wanting to ‘ride the midnight horse’ and do a patriot thing should get involved with the voting process. In their local area. It starts there.
Remember that Romney won Iowa - NOT. After he had a nice time basking in his win - a local patriot entered the picture to point out - the vote had not been counted right.
Guess who then actually won Iowa, after they did recheck the votes - Rick Santorem.
Eighty percent turnout, that’s amazing. We should do half as well. Any word on his cancer?
Here is a FR thread a few days ago with good info and links about vote methods and fraud etc.
