At issue now is returning to full health. Venezuelan pray he'll do so soon. They reelected him overwhelmingly last October. They won't tolerate dark forces returning.
He turned neoliberal harshness into Bolivarian success. With or without him, it's institutionalized. It's part of Venezuela's culture.
It's polar opposite America's permanent war policy, ravaging the world for global dominance, police state harshness, force-fed austerity, growing human need, and government beholden solely to business and privileged elitism.
Chavez champions human rights. He has no secret prisons. He doesn't invade his neighbors. He abhors torture.
He engages other nations cooperatively. He seeks unity and world solidarity. He supports free, open and fair elections.
Jimmy Carter calls them "the best in the world." It shames America's process. Duopoly power runs things. Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same coin.
Venezuelans get real democracy. They want things no other way. Their votes count. Chavez institutionalized it. They pray for his full recovery. They want him back in full health.
Chavismo reflects Bolivarian fairness. He did so much for so many. He's too important to lose.
