^Lmfao

Chavez has become really troublesome over the past 12 years. It will be a tremendous relief for Venezuela if he dies. The irony of matter is that he denies that he's seriously fucked up with cancer and hopes to win the next election to keep up his socialist revolutionary charade.

Chavez's record is debatable certainly, he is responsible for some good things, some not so good, but I guess this is not the right forum to have an adult debate on serious matters.

At least he knows, I guess. A few of my friends and relatives, killed in
accidents, never knew it would be their last day on earth.

I'm not dancing for joy when anyone gets cancer, I don't care who they are. Sad story.

Likewise, you could also say this about any political leader.

But the reality is that most Venezuelans would agree that more negative than positive has come out since he took office.

I don't necessarily agree with his reformism but this is a shame if true.

Actually, he's done quite a lot of good for the Venezuelan people.

For example, he's just about halved the poverty rate in his time in office.

Really? Where's the proof?

But to be honest, I am not surprised you all think this way, the media is very anti-Chavez and understandably so.

I don't know a whole heck of a lot about Chavez' policies, just the snippets I've heard in the news here and there over the years. I know he's really divisive, but hell, that can be said of many leaders, if not all of them, at some point and time.

I'm definitely not fond of his friendships with some leaders however, since they're ideologically miles apart.

To put it simply, he's giving the working class hope. I think you can understand why he's so divisive.

Heh, that's a pretty short, succint way of summing up your point there.

Wasn't it him that got some big news for making some nasty comments about Dubya when he was in office? Again, a lot of leaders didn't like President Bush, but I know there was a really big deal made about comments towards him at one point.

Yeah, that was him. With that he's prone to saying some very silly things, in jest or not. He's taken a few shots at Obama in recent times as well.

You probably may not have heard about this but Venezuela has a company that provides low cost heating to a number of Americans.

Thought so. Taking shots at Obama too tells me either he's, like you said, just prone to making silly comments, or it's more just a general criticism of America as a whole and they just happen to be the target given they're the "face" of the country.

Having had to deal with that whole "affording heat" problem before, I approve of that .

To be honest, Obama dug in with the usual "we're worried about how you're 'undemocratic'" etc etc.

In regards to Chavez's popularity, a GISXXI poll in December showed that he had an approval rating of 57% with the highest opposition having only 11%. In addition to that, the UN and CEPAL confirmed that Venezuela is the least unequal country in Latin America and in the past 12 years poverty decreased by 26.8% and extreme poverty by 19.7%.

Again, I'm not suggesting Chavez is some sort of heavenly messiah, but he's done much good for the people.

I wish the best for Mr. Chavez. I highly respect him for speaking out against George W. Bush, the most evil man in the world.

One of my favourite things about Chavez was that he offered 26 homeless families to stay at the presidential palace after floods in 2010, and for as long as they wanted until they found a new home.
