Escarra accused MUD of "attack(ing) the constitution in a very serious way".It's the gravest thing I've ever read." It's "savage capitalism."

It wants public pensions abolished, Venezuela's state oil company, PDVSA, privatized, and other measures violating constitutional provisions.

"If this (plan) were to happen," he added, "we'd have to go out into the street. We can't allow such a huge step backwards."

Escarra helped write Venezuela's Bolivarian Constitution. At the same time, he's been an opposition spokesman. He'll now maintain ties as an independent.

A Final Comment

Days ahead of October 7, Bolivarianism looks sure to win. Imagine if America and EU countries prioritized its principles. Instead of neoliberal austerity-caused hard times, prosperity might be just around the corner or perhaps firmly established.

Socially beneficial policies help everyone. No one's excluded. Just societies do things that way. Neoliberal ones leave most people on their own out of luck. Record high misery index readings show America's dire state. It also reveals bipartisan indifference.

Bolivarianism is mirror opposite. On October 7, expect Venezuelans to extend its mandate overwhelmingly for another six years. They can't imagine another way for good reason.
