    Good riddance, if true.
    Now Kim Jong Il, Adolf Hitler, and Saddam Hussein have a fourth for their tee time in hell.

      You realize you’re comparing a man that is a bad leader with men that are mass murderers and despots. Even though he can’t lead, Chavez was democratically elected and has never been suspected of mass killing his people. Also, you’re mixing time periods. If you mention Hitler, then Stalin or Mao might be more appropriate. If you’re going current day, then Kadafi would be better than Hitler.

        Hell has no time. And I’m not sure he was actually “Democratically” elected…did you see all the photoshopped pictures of the people in the streets celebrating?

        • Really rigged? I live in Venezuela and have done so for 43yrs. First, after Chavez, the chavezistas will be elected. I am dead set against this regime, but it is not more corrupt nor more incompetent than previous regimes which we in business have suffered here of the decades. The elections were surely no more rigged than those before Chavez. If you are comparing Chavez to other elected, but less than democratic leaders, the equivalent would be Huey Long in Mississippi, Duplessis in Quebec, Nazarbayev in Kazakhstan, or Peron in Argentina. The other comparisons made are meaningless invective, and contribute nothing to our understanding.

            Your comparison to Huey Long is completely WRONG. Huey Long was a Louisiana politician. And NOTHING like Chavez.

            Huey Long’s Legacy – A New Louisiana

            Huey Long transformed politics in Louisiana from a virtual aristocracy to a true democracy. He broke the wealthy elite’s stranglehold on Louisiana’s government, which had effectively disenfranchised the poor majority for centuries. Armed with education, transportation and the vote, Louisiana’s masses gained unprecedented opportunity to better their lives and would never again be subdued.

          No doubt about that. “Coincidentally”, all elections of tyrants in the region that have the same company for analyzing and counting votes, end up with a 54%…

        Yes, I believe that ‘I am Trademark’ is not too far off when he/she compares Hugo Chavez with Mass Murderers and despots. He’s well covered by his many allies, but he will still be held responsible for the rising amount of deaths occurred on Venezuelan soil this past years. Only on the month of December 500 corpses were registered in one morgue located in one city. So far, 2012 has had 22,000 deaths in Venezuela. So, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Qaddafi and Hussein have a lot in common.

    My niece married a nice young man from Venezuela and his family is still there. It is not a pleasant place to be from what I understand and not very easy to leave. I still give him my hand-me-down clothes to take with him whenever he goes to give to the many poor people there. There may not be any reported genocides, but that kind of regime NEVER ends well, so just give it time.

      “The Government issue of fiat paper money has also been associated with the American School from the 1830s onwards”

      IMHO, this would be one of the major downfalls of this theory. It’s not gonna end well as we are finding out. Personally I am not a big fan of protectionist policies and tariffs. Whether we like it or not, we are in a global economy now and I don’t think you can turn that clock back. I can see where there may have been some merit 150 years ago. If you are looking for tariffs and such now, it’s only because our tax policy and unions have done more to destroy the economic engine than anything else. It’s not gonna bring the jobs back.

      The flaw in your economic principle is you do not understand the impact of the dollar as the global currency. This is the principle at the root of our non-protectionist policy.

      If you remove the dollar as global trade currency. Effective tomorrow a loaf of bread will cost you $300.00
