I can't help but be impressed with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez. He will not be intimidated by the imperialist powers who seek to enslave his nation with IMF control. More power to him.

He recently had this to say about the UK's Tony Bliar

Chávez hits back at 'pawn of imperialism' Blair

The Guardian

The Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez, yesterday described Tony Blair as "a pawn of imperialism", in response to the prime minister's comments in parliament on Wednesday that Mr Chávez's close relationship with Cuba is an affront to the international community.
Mr Chávez retaliated yesterday: "You, Mr Blair, do not have the morality to call on anyone to respect the rules of the international community. You are precisely the one of those who has disrespected international law the most ... siding with Mr Danger [George Bush] to trample the people in Iraq."

This is the epitome of a modern-day David vs. Goliath.

Liberals can't help but like Hugo Chavez, as he is a socialist.

This guy could end up being on the same level as Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, and Velasco Alvarado.

His main goal right now is to get oil prices over $100 a barrel.

February 11, 2006 | In a manner highly reminiscent of early Castro's Cuba and the Ortega brothers' Nicaragua, except with much more money at his disposal, Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chávez has rapidly turned his country into a militaristic society in the worst tradition of Peru's Velasco Alvarado, Uganda's Idi Amin or Iraq's Sadam Hussein.

100206 – No. 03/06 – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is seeking to raise world oil prices to $100 a barrel this year. Chavez needs a high and rising stream of oil revenues in 2006-2007 because Venezuela’s oil production capacity is collapsing, and his Bolivarian revolution can only be sustained by evergreater public spending. Chavez, who is seeking re-election to a second six-year term in December 2006, plans to spend up to $65 billion this year on social programs and infrastructure projects. He needs significantly more fiscal revenues, and oil is Venezuela’s only cash cow.

After a little research, I know now why Pat Robertson believes Chavez needs to be taken out.

liberals... Just because I don't embrace the nonsense you do, does not make me a liberal.

That smear tactic is absurd. I'm a Republican, despite your inability to concieve of that.

You have been so programmed to bend over for the international banking system, you are unable to recognize imperialist BS. Your comments reflect nothing more than your ability to absorb propaganda and respew it. Congratulations.

So, you support Pat Robertson's thinking, eh?:shk:

I wouldn't be saying that too loudly.

Hugo Chavez has done for his country what most leaders never do: put the best interests of his nation before personal profit. I know, its a foreign concept to most.

Hugo is rightly fighting for his country. How can such a oil rich country have so many poor people? was his original question. It's funny how the Western media show Chavez as a dicatator.

Well.. you know, with the Bushling administration, black is white day is night.

As far as your question goes, it appears Chavez is trying to right that injustice. The powers that be cannot abide that, tho. It exposes their own fruadulence.
