#1 'Rich is bad.' That's his message.

There's a logical trap here, if "Rich is Bad" where's the incentive to advance?

#2 I see that Mr. Chavez also subscribes to the Bob Mugabe school of economic development.

#3 Socialism works. No wonder Hugo is a favorite of the antiglobo left/marxists in disguise, he's doing what they wish they could.

#4 My thought exactly, DMFD. Hugo and the masses aspire to a paradise like Zimbabwe's. They deserve the natural selection they're going to get.

#6 He's already started. Companies that his administration deems 'inactive' or 'under employed' are being seized and forced to provide jobs that are not profitable and/or that are given to unskilled workers.

#8 a well-aimed .50 caliber bullet vs all this heartache, family and social upheaval? Ask the Venezuelans 30 yrs from now what we should've done?

#9 They'll all be loyal Yugo voters in 30 years. 70 might be a better choice, life expectancy, medical advances and what not.

#10 And now this dumbass wants to give all the angry illiterate hicks guns. This is just one guy talking here, but I think that is a mistake.

#11 That's pretty damn sad when someone thinks Colombia is more stable than Venezuela.
