Hello...Communism is Socialism's ugly step sister.... Now, a little socialism sprinkled here and there is good. Its when you cross that line, and that step sister moves in that you have mucho problemas.

Your a fool if you think Socialism and Communism are the same thing. Think dummy- Orwell was a socialist, is he a pinko as well?
Karl Marx was born on May 5, 1818 in the city of Trier, Germany. Marx was a revolutionary who advocated 'merciless criticism of everything existing'. In 1843, Marx went to Paris in order to publish a journal of his radical ideas. He was a critic of capitalism, and an advocate of socialism. The following year he met Frederick Engels, who was to become a friend and collaborator. Marx and Engels were both active in various revolutionary groups, and together worked out the theory and tactics of 'Revolutionary Proletarian Socialism', which they called 'Communism'.
According to Marxist theory, it is the final condition of a country when goods produced by the workers are distributed equally to all, and where 'the state' no longer exists. After socialism was adopted as official doctrine by various countries, noteably the former Soviet Union, communism came to mean the political system of a country where a single authoritarian party controls all state-owned production.

I was referring to Chavez helping the poor citizens of his own nation, rather than putting the wealthy citizens of foreign nations first. If the wealthy natiosn thirst for oil, than they must pay the price that is asked of it, or simply find alternatives (which I would much rather prefer)
