Venezuela - Are They Waking Up?
It appears some folks there are. They finally are realizing the reforms Chavez is pushing do nothing good for the citizenry. However, in Hitlery Clinton fashion, he is giving a few of the folks a couple of bucks for a little while to insure getting votes. After that, the prospects don't look too good.
The amendments would give the government control over the Central Bank, create
new types of cooperative property, allow authorities to detain citizens without
charges during a state of emergency and extend presidential terms from six to
seven years while allowing Chavez to run again in 2012.
Take a good look at Hugo's plan and try to figure how this is going to benefit anyone but Hugo. Allowing authorities to detain citizens without charges? Cooperative property? Control over the Central Bank? Looks an awfully lot like the former Soviet Union to me.
Just an observation.
