It has everthing to do with a society. Elections are only one part of a society; the economic system is much more important.

Eh? We're not talking about Venezuelan society, we're talking about whether Venezuela is a democracy or a dictatorship.

If the elections are merely held to determine which person will make the socialist decisions, it is not a democracy.

What the heck are you on? If the government and it's leader is elected by the people it is, by definition, a democracy. Whether the decisions they then go on to implement are socialist or capitalist has absolutely zero impact on whether or not it's a democracy. How hard is that to grasp? Socialist democracies are widespread. Are you trying to tell me Spain is a dictatorship because it too has a democratically elected socialist government? Do you even know the difference between an economic model and a governmental model?

You have voted subz for the Way Above Top Secret award.
You have one more vote left for this month.

You pretty much said everything I would have, and it weas a generally good post(s).


Now, as to the Venezuealn election being stole, well let me put it this way,
Chavez was elected, he was deposed in a coup d'etat, and the people
opposed that, and wanted him back, and he is now once again the president.
