Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez Tightens State Control … As Obama Looks to do the Same


Birds of a feather …

What can Obamanomics do for you? Or better yet what does Obamanomics have in HugoChavezstore for you? Maybe the same thing that Hugo Chavez’s economic policies have done in Venezuela causing a complete catastrophe.

Venezuela’s socialist dictator Hugo Chavez looks to tighten state controls of food and set government imposed food prices amid out of control inflation. Chavez is basically making companies produce food at a loss with government imposed pricing. Venezuela’s nationalizations under Hugo Chavez.

President Hugo Chavez is tightening state control over Venezuela’s food supply, setting quotas for food staples which are to be sold at government-imposed prices.

Venezuela’s public finances are unravelling, with oil prices at $40 a barrel, while the national budget is calculated at $60 a barrel. Inflation is running at over 30 per cent, yet with the new measures Mr Chavez is seeking to ensure that his core support, the poor, can still fill their shopping baskets with food.


Obama would never think of nationalizing banks, credit card, auto or airline companies

As The Other McCain has stated, “Fixing prices, rationing, hyperinflation — you may say, “Well, that can’t happen here in America,” but how do you know?” Obama’s policies have already caused the stock markets to fall as investors have been driven out of the markets. Inflation cannot be too far around the corner of which presently, there is none. What do Obama and Chavez have in common? To solve the problem of tough economic times caused by government intervention, with more government intervention.

With that now achieved the Venezuelan leader, who has vowed to turn his South American nation into a model Socialist state, is now taking some unpopular decisions needed to stabilise his floundering economy.

While we sleep, we’re being led into fascist socialism

Sound familiar? Socialism never works. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

      Fascism you mean like the illegal state set up by Georgie Bush in his 7 secret memos that essentially gave him the power to deploy the military within the country against us citizens, violate our fourth amendment rights against unlawful search and seizures, detain us without probable cause or the right to counsel you mean that kind of fascism that occurred from Nov 2001 until January, 19, 2009. Socialism, hmmm do mean the kind of government that puts aside 750 billion for the banks so that the free enterprise system can be saved from the free enterprise system?? That kinda of socialism?? Or do you mean the kind of socialism that takes 2 trillion dollars of revenue from all citizens and gives it to the richest 10% of the citizens in the way of tax cuts. That kind of socialism??? Man I guess you have been sleeping for a long time.

      P ersecution of christians

      I llegal contributions
      D eath & deception
      E conomic disaster
      obama directly aided kenya prime minister in the burning of 300 christian churches and the displacement of over 350,000 non muslims. in other words, your boy is nothing more than a murderer.

      Super Dave
      I see we have resurrected the Clintonian era repug repostes including the “he’s a murderer.” Too bad Jerry Falwell has gone on to h— cause he could have produced a video for your and yours I’m sure.
      And what’s with the blatant racism on this site. Thought you guys had alternative ideas but it just seems hate is all you got up your sleeves.

      Do you kiss your Mommy with that mouth? And aren’t you the one who was worried about my soul in the Babs posts? Jeez, guess you just wanted to teach me how to join Rev. Falwell in h—. Also you’re intellectual rebuts are too deep for me.

      Frankly it is not hard to see the direct relationship between Germany 1935-1939 and America now. Obama’s campaign could have been staged by the German National Socialist Labor Party of that time. Obama’s even had direct racist overtones. His economic policy is a copy of the failed program most nearly of Juan Peron. This is Argentina all over again where the economy was ruined with strong government control leading to high inflation. Based upon projections predicted from his current and announced actions we should expect in 4 years the following:
      Structural Unemployment 11%
      Inflation 14-15%
      Economic growth low to negative.

      Following will be government control of information, Some attempt at price controls and some form of conscription for ages 18-25.

      As things worsen, a National emergency will be declared with a hold on all Federal elections..JS

      I would like to suggest a theme song for President Obama. It sung to the tune of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas. The opening line is:

      “He’s beginning to look a lot like Chavez,
      Everything he does…”
