    The only chance the poor and the dispossessed of that country have is for the revolution to survive. They will be struggling with all their might to preserve it...and the alternative to preserving it is to have the Bain model imposed on that country through international financial pressure(or through the imposition of Capriles, a man who is pretty much the Mitt Romney of Venezuela).

    A man may be dead, but the people fight on.

    La Lucha Continua!

    Yeah!!! Speak Truth to Cockroacha!!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Ummm...DUmmies...the people of Venezuela are glad he's gone.

    You're the only ones that think his passing is a bad thing.

    Didn't the military try to overthrow Chavez a couple of times in the past? My guess is that they will take control quickly, at least until the UN or someone intervenes and elections are held, probably supervised by Jimmy Carter.

    Ummm...no. Chavez was the one while in the military trying to overthrow the Government.

    There was one attempt by some officers that hated Chavez but that was it.

    And again you'd guess...wrong.

    His Vice President who has been the interim while Chavez was in Cuba will retain that role for now.

    I know you were hoping for some kind of Military takeover so you could spew Liberal azioms about the "military industrial complex" and other such nonsense...but alas...you won't get to. :(

    I'm a liberal who doesn't hate the military, okay?

    I just thought that since Venezuala's military had tried to oust Chavez in the past, they would take advantage of the situation with his death and take control for the purpose of stabilization.


    The UN intervention/Jimmy Carter election supervison was a joke, one that I thought conservatives would find amusing (in an eyerolling way) because it has happened that way in other countries.

    Jimmy Carter is every Communist Dictators friend. Always has been...always will be. You're right it was funny. Especially since he almost beat bama to the punch of being the first one in the U.S. to send condolences.

    Which people of Venezuela? The ones who love him or the ones who hate him?
