The people of Venezuela elected this man four times by wide margins -- despite repeated coup attempts by the CIA.
Do you believe in democracy, Ro? Evidently not.
Some of the criticisms are no doubt true. But the important fact is that Chavez changed the balance of power -- by shifting resources to the poor.
You would prefer to keep the rich oligarchs in power? Evidently you stand with the 1%.
