I see comments by Americans. Here is an epitaph to Chavez by a Venezuelan.
Judging Chavez by US economic standards cannot capture the importance of what Chavez meant to Venezuela. He spent oil money to make the lives of Venezuelans better.
From your posts you clearly believe the oil money should have gone into the bank accounts of the plutocracy.
Americans are not competent to evaluate someone like Chavez.
