Chavez Riding High in Polls


Chavez looks like an overwhelming winner in October elections.

by Stephen Lendman

Bolivarianism remains overwhelmingly popular. So is Chavez. He heads the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).

In 1999, he transformed the nation into a Bolivarian republic. It's based on "solidarity, fraternity, love, justice, liberty and equality."

He changed it politically, economically and socially. He established participatory democracy. Venezuela's process shames America's, Britain's, France's, and other Western states.

He constitutionally instituted basic social rights for everyone. They include universal health care, education, affordable housing, land reform, indigenous rights, and much more.

Venezuala's oil wealth is used responsibly. It's elections are free, open and fair. Freedoms of speech, the press, and assembly are institutionalized. So are other fundamental rights sorely lacking or eroding in America, across Europe, and elsewhere.
