Since apparently the World Bank isn't a good source of ecenomic growth, and probably has a bias in favor of Huga Chavez.
#1 - Allegations of electoral fraud and abuse
Boy, this doesn't sound familiar at all! Would Bush be willing to submit to an honest and fair recall vote like Chavez was? No, because without his election fraud in both Ohio and Florida, he wouldn't be President today.
#2 - Authoritarian rule and power consolidation
Patriot act anyone? Not to mention the suspension of habeas corpus and Bush's ability to ignore posse comitatus. We could also get into the whole illegal wiretapping, firing of the attorney's, and all the other completely unethical things our current administration has done in an unpresedented power grab.
Yes, pretty much. And that's why our government / media don't like him. I watched "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" also, and it says everything opposite of what TKainZero said. TKainZero what is your source for that info?

Read Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins. it is a fascinating book dealing with our involvement in central and southern American governments as well as Middle Eastern.

I have just watched the documentary 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised', and at the end I cryed. A man who loves his people so much as to give himself up to save them, and a man who gained his peoples' love and respect by telling the truth and helping all of them. My heart aches for such a man to represent me in the government. We see only what the powers that be want us to see. We are imprisoned in our own country, a country that says it is free. The only people that are truly free are the few that control the money we use. Our own government has censored us and blocked our view of the truth. Today I am a sad man, to think that a country so close to us can have freedom while we have false freedom from our false prophets.
Tell me when will we begin to make our country as it was meant to be?
When will we truly be free?
When will we stand up and say this is enough, we want freedom?
When will we become United?
We are supposedly the United States Of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave; When will we deserve that title once again?
