We are living in Venezuela Del Norte.
Exactly. And don’t forget, Chavez also was elected to office. (He was one of Obama’s great heros, btw - remember the adulation from The Won?)
What we are seeing is an “autogolpe,” which means “self-coup.” A dictator is elected, whether illegitimately or simply through the foolishness of a public believing his populist rhetoric, and then carries out a quiet internal coup, taking over all public agencies and authorities, filling all positions with party activists of his own choosing, and seizing the financial system. Which of these has Obama not done?
This government is the enemy of honest people.
