How many years do you think before the CIA leads a revolt? I’d volunteer for that one in a heartbeat.
I am as appalled by this as the rest of you guys, but are you being serious when you call for overthrowing a democratically elected guy who has more than twice the approval rate of your president?
Do you want to protect the Venezuelans against themselves? Do you know better than them? If someone tries to cut his leg (for whatever reason), will you beat the crap out of him just so that he doesn’t do it?
I seriously question your basic understanding of liberty at this point.
I don’t think I made myself sufficiently clear. In two years Bush will leave, and to that I say good riddance. At this point in time, Venezuela got what they voted for. If they keep voting him in, then to hell with them. I’m not for overthrowing Chavez…at this time. I am for overthrowing him when he refuses to leave and must subjugate his people in order to remain in power. This is certain to happen. What we will see is the democratic process destroyed to where he is “re-elected” every time, much the way Saddam claimed to have been elected with 100% of the vote AND 100% of the citizens voting. I have no idea why he thought we’d buy that, but Chavez will do the same. For his sake, let’s hope he’s a little craftier with the numbers. At that time, I’d be willing to volunteer to kick him out. My apologies for the confusion.
Another thing to mention is that inalienable rights are just that. A democratically elected leader has no right to deny them to his people no matter how popular he is. If George Bush, with the unanimous consent of congress decided to re-institute slavery you can bet your ass I wouldn’t say it was okay, democratically elected representatives or no. I’d be calling for revolution.
I’ve said it before, on this one, George Bush has been right on.
Nothing makes this punk more angry than us ignoring him.
chavez runs his mouth pretty ragged. I remember another South American tyrant waving his sword declaring war on the U.S.
That didn’t turn out too well (for him).
However, if chavez declared war on the U.S., anyone want to bet lixy would be rooting for him 100%?
