It does not appear that all in Venezuela agree with Hugo Chavez. Hundreds of thousands of supporters turned out to support the opposition presidential candidate Manuel Rosales. Obviously Chavez is up in the polls. Many think that Hugo Chavez has created black lists and is using voter intimidation. Chavez would use any fear tactic to remain in power. Its worked for him so far. Venezuela’s only hope for any type of future is to rid themselves of Chavez. Unfortunately, dictators have a way of winning elections. Wonder how democratic a process this will really be?
“Rosales is our last hope to prevent this country from becoming another Cuba,” said 53-year-old engineer Antonio Romero, who marched with his family carrying Venezuelan flags.
Rosales promises to end Chavez’s confrontation with the Bush administration, redistribute bountiful oil revenues and reduce soaring crime rates throughout Venezuela. (Reuters)
