How the Hills Came Down in Venezuela and Elected Hugo Chavez, Pt. I
Before Hugo Chavez arrived to power in Venezuela, there was a strangely
popular saying among the country's citizens: "Cuando bajen los cerros."
Translated, it means, "when the hills come down." This was a reference to
the day when the poorest of the barrios, who live on the hills and
mountainsides of the urban cities of Venezuela, would emerge from their
homes to make elected officials pay for decades of political exclusion and
social inequality.

Of all the questions I've heard about Venezuela, "Why?" is the most
difficult to answer. Why is Venezuela the way that it is and why is it so
difficult to change its path, even though so many people inside and outside
the country wish to see it happen?

The answer requires a look at the country's political, economic and social
history. In this this article, I will try to provide the first half of the
answer, outlining how did Venezuela elect a populist military leader named
Hugo Chavez, who led the outbreak of 21st Century Socialism and started the
nation's current path to where it finds itself today.

The Death of Democracy in Venezuela: The Road to Today Pt. II
Last week, I wrote an article which detailed the first half of the answer to
the question, "why is Venezuela the way that it is today?" It shared a
50-year history of imperfect democracy and political corruption which sets
the stage for populist leader Hugo Chavez to be elected President of
Venezuela in 1998 by a 16-point margin.

This second half outlines the post-1998 path of constitutional clashes and
political warfare Venezuela has taken to arrive to today's growing
humanitarian crisis which continues to worsen and threatens the stability of
Latin America. I want to point out that this article focuses on the major
events and political decisions that have made it impossible for Venezuela to
escape today's crisis, despite opposition control of the legislative branch,
and leave an important disclaimer near the end.

Lieutenant Colonel Hugo Chavez Frias was elected as an independent candidate
on a campaign platform which included pledges to clamp down on corruption
and make Venezuela a representative democracy with a working economy for
everyone. However, one of the foremost reasons he was elected was because of
his promise to bring about swift and radical change, namely in the form of a
constitutional reformation.

You and your old anti-Semite friend have in the past always supported
Castro and Chavez. All on record.

The links means everything and a continued series of posts over years
exposes you as a liar.
You and you anti-Semite pal have been exposed as dogmatic liars by
subsequent events and now you try to "rebuild you virginity".
Both a hypocrite and an idiot for thinking you can get away with
continued lies.
Note that Canadian authorities didn't think that your friends
anti-Semite ravings were "fun". Yours and his pro-Castro and pro-Chavez
rants weren't either. Be a man and own up for what you said.
Deal with it: your past has caught up with you and I won't let your lies
slide as I didn't let the racist slurs of your pal slide.

Neither "funny" nor "dramatic".
Just factual.
You diversions don't change reality.
Knowledge will set you free and knowing who the propaganda liars are
even more.
JAT is a propganda liar.
