Venezuelans get the real thing. Their electoral process is the best in the world. It's independently judged open, free and fair. Every vote counts. They're tabulated fully and honestly.

US elections are rigged. Politics in America reflect more hypocrisy than democracy.

Overnight Sunday into Monday pre-dawn, Venezuelans celebrated. Fireworks went off in Caracas. People honked horns, waved flags, and cheered. Thousands massed outside the Miraflores presidential palace. Chavez rallied them.

From a balcony overlooking the crowd, he raised a sword once belonging to 19th century independence hero Simon Bolivar. "The revolution has triumphed," he said! Venezuelans "voted for socialism." 

"Viva Venezuela! Viva the fatherland! The battle was perfect and the victory was perfect!"

"Today we've shown that Venezuela's democracy is one of the best democracies in the world, and we will continue to show it." 

"Venezuela will never return to neoliberalism and continue in the transition to socialism of the 21st century."

"I want to make a recognition to the whole Venezuelan people, the whole Venezuelan nation. Today the country of Bolivar was reborn."

In response, supporters chanted, "Viva Le Patria. "Ooh Aah, Chavez won't go!"
