Venezuelan Electoral Postmortems


Bolivarianism triumphed!

by Stephen Lendman

Chavistas celebrated Sunday's victory. Bolivarianism triumphed over exploitive neoliberal harshness. In open, free, and fair elections, Venezuelans got to choose. It's constitutionally mandated. Every vote counts equally. 

Americans don't have that right. On November 6, choice won't be the ballot. Column A matches Column B. Money power chooses candidates and winners. Some election! No wonder half the electorate ops out.

On October 7, Venezuelans turned out in record numbers. Over 80% of registered voters showed up. Turnout was so great, many waited hours to exercise their franchise. 

It's important because what they say matters. They wanted Chavez for another six years and got him. They want Bolivarianism sustained and deepened. 

Chavez pledged he'll do it. He keeps promises. Vows US leaders make aren't worth the paper they're written on. Obama broke every major one he made.
