Chavez Seeks to Support a Rising Dominican Political Figure in 2008


Source Link: www.dominicantoday.com

Normally, Chávez’s until now disguised affections have been centered in emergent figures and not in professional politicians who postulate equal or similar ideas to his in the context of the present process of changes in Latin America regarding its dependency on the United States.

After Fidel Castro’s handicap in Cuba, the leadership of a new exciting and contagious left seems to a large extent, to be under Chávez’s wing and he has also openly acted to support presidential candidates who, at their moment, were neither those of the party in power nor their favorites, not even standing presidents, supposing that they seek re-election.

I will find more information on this person that Chavez supposedly is backing up . . .

My sister in law is from the Dominican republic her family owns businesses in that country and she and my brother move back and forth between that country and Puerto Rico . . .

So far for what my brother has told me is that the present government in the Dominican Republic is corrupted . . . so perhaps is a reason why a change have to happen.

My Island of Puerto Rico is full of illegal people from, Haiti, Jamaica, Cuba and Dominican Republic, due to the fact that in those countries their governments keep their people in poverty and only a few with power can prosper with the right ties to the government.

Fine if the people of the Republic want a new person, by all means elect one. What I find troubling is that once again he is trying to push his communist agenda in yet another South American country and that concerns me.

Well I don't think that the present government is very democratic at all when in fact they live in comfort while the rest of the population are living in squalor.

My brother makes fun of the fact that as long as you stay in the "Capitai" the capital everything is very nice and pretty with paved roads for the enjoyment of the tourist . . . but once you leave the "Capitai" is nothing but squalor, hunger and places that only on horse back you can reach.

I understood that Marg. What concerns me is Chavez's support. We all know he has tried to influence elections in other countries and it is very clear he wants to turn them all into communist countries.

Can you just imagine what it would be like if all of South America or at best a great portion of it turned to total communism?
