Bolivarianism v. Fake US Democracy


Venezuelans get the real thing. Americans get shafted.

On October 7, Venezuelans go to the polls. Expect Chavez reelected again overwhelmingly. Expect the freest, most open and fair electoral process in the Americas. Perhaps it's the best anywhere.

On November 6, polls open in America. Voters have no choice. Democrats and Republicans barely differ. They're in lockstep on issues mattering most. 

Ordinary people are entirely left out. They have no say. Voting for either major party assures same old same old. Money power runs things. Elections are for show. They're a facade. Venezuelans get the real thing.

Chavez expects pre and post-election mischief. Perhaps it began. In Barinas, one of 23 Venezuelan states, two supporters of opposition candidate Henrique Capriles were shot and killed. Another was wounded.

At issue is what's going on and who's to blame. Chavez supporters are nonviolent. They're not about to shoot anyone. Certainly not to enhance victory on October 7. Point fingers elsewhere. Cui bono matters most. It always does.
