Destabilizing Venezuela: Chavez Is A Concern For Washington

…Reelection next month looks certain. Imagine if America had leadership like his. He doesn’t seek regional or global hegemony. He endorses peace, not war. He engages other nations cooperatively. He seeks unity and world solidarity. He heads the kind of democracy Americans can’t even imagine.

His policies are socially progressive. State resources provide vital services. He champions civil and human rights. Ordinary Venezuelans are helped, not denied or persecuted.

No secret prisons exist. He doesn’t target neighbors or practice torture. His elections are judged open, free and fair.

The contrast with Washington is stark. Leadership in both countries is mirror opposite. Venezuelans have choice when they vote. Americans get two sides of the same coin. It’s corrupted, dysfunctional, tyrannical, and too broken to fix. Bolivarianism shames it.
