- Almost bankrupting the country and most of its citizens
- Assaulting Venezuela's democracy by enabling legislation to rule by decree and removing constitutional term limits designed to protect against tyrants like him
- Interfering with and adversely affecting countries in the region by supporting leaders who are employing similar tactics to himself in destroying democracy - Ortega, Morales & Correa
- Using oil revenues Venezuela desperately needs to support and maintain members' participation in his Alba alliance, a poorly disguised attempt at colonization of the region.
- Forging alliances with other rogue & repressive regimes in the world such as the vicious Khomeini / Ahmadinejad regime in Iran.
- Continuing an irrational and unsubstantiated assault on the free & democratic world by spreading overt hatred of Americans. His lies go so far as blaming the US for causing the recent earthquake in Haiti in order to conquer that country.
I have had many requests for facts that demonstrate...
the damage Chavez has caused. I recently read an excellent article which concisely laid out the carnage caused by this despot. I have published the article below with the permission of its author, the Arcadia Foundation. After reading this I hope you will all applaud & comprehend the recent brave action by Hondurans in protecting their country & its democracy.
