Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has won a fourth term in office after defeating opposition leader Henrique Capriles, electoral officials say.

Mr Chavez won 54% of the vote, the country's electoral council announced.

Those who vote decide nothing.

Those who count the vote (like Chavez and his supporters) decide everything.

It’s not the people who vote; it’s the people who count the votes.

This is what is in store for America is this monster Obama wins here in a few weeks. It's time for us to step up. The time is now.

In Venezuela ,there are shortages of food in the stores. Socialism always brings rationing , shortages, poverty, oppression, slavery and great suffering. This is what we have in store for America if this POS Obama wins.

I met a man from Venezuela who told that Chavez said the same things Obama did when it was first running. Socialists are all the same everywhere.

here we go!

Stability in the region is assured. May Hugo be smitten with a large dose of Godsmack.

Hope he enjoyed the run.

A little voter fraud here, a little voter fraud there, and you have Chavez winning. Somewhere, Obama is asking for those guys to count the votes here

As predictable as our regimes economic report.

Yep. Why do we imagine the “mainstream” polls here in America are showing “Obama” with close to 50 percent of the country’s vote? “They” are just prepping us for massive election fraud on Nov 6th, because that criminal creep in the White House does not have NEARLY the support the media portrays.
