Hugo Chavez is dead and good riddance

The tyrant of Venezuela has croaked:
CARACAS - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez died on Tuesday after a two-year battle with cancer, ending 14 years of tumultuous rule that made the socialist leader a hero for the poor but a hate figure to his opponents.
Oh please. He was the reason why the poor remained that way. Because of people like him, poverty rose and businesses declined.

Now that he's gone, it remains to be seen if Venezuela will find its way back to being a more civilized, democratic country. But without the right foreign demands for this, there's no telling if it'll happen.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
