This world needs more people like Chavez.

In reply to an earlier post on 6 Mar 2013 14:08:34 GMT
Agreed.

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 11:47:03 GMT
Why?

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 12:49:30 GMT
Because some of us (not Kookus) believe in putting people before profit...

Gordon: Because not all of us are capitalist, materialist profiteers. And we need people like Chavez to stand up against the political machinations of big business and Western governmental economics.

Well said Spinnoes!!

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 15:26:13 GMT
This is no answer Spinny. Explain HOW he made Venezuela better for the poor people?

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 15:28:41 GMT
Like they do in your beloved NK?

Btw <<people before profit>> is brainless claptrap Simone...you claim to do better.

What do you know of me?

Gordon: If you think I am going to relate to you the political and cultural history of Venezuala, you are mistaken. May I suggest you start taking more of an interest in "International politics".

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 15:37:01 GMT
Again, no answer Spinny.

Gordon: If you are relying on me to provide you with an account of Venezualan history, you do me a greater honour than I deserve. If you are unfamiliar with recent international affairs, may I suggest you watch the news and access the research and reports freely available on the net, libraries and bookshops. You never know; you might learn something.

He divided opinion, born in abject poverty and spent billions on providing housing and health care for the poor of Venezuala, nationalised the industries ordinary people rely on, as well as implementing workers control of many industries. Obviously those with an eye on their shares were not happy..................................but I guess most know this already.

MR S; To be sure, Chavez was not perfect. Who is? Power corrupts, does it not? I do not mean to say that Chavez was a perfect leader. My point is that, politically speaking, he was one of the few that made a difference and, despite his faults, mostly concerning internal politics, he showed the world that Capitalism is NOT the only viable system of government. All his political faults can be excused by his belief in the right of the citizens to determine their own life and society. The fact that the US tried to oust Chavez is proof of the validity of his political ideology.

Spinny,

<<power corrupts, does it not>>

Which is a sound case for not having a dictator like Chavez usurp power for 14 years, isn't it?

He was a jumped up glib rhetorical egocentric windbag bull s***er, who knew nothing about how to create a successful society and less about economics.

He replaced capitalism with his own privileged elite, corruption and crime rose as power was centralised into his group's hands.

Removed basic democratic rights and controlled press/TV to give out his propaganda.

The economy is down the tubes, the infrastructure rotting. There are shortages of basic food stuffs, regular brownouts, 20% inflation, devalued currency, water rationing, rising public and fiscal debt.

All this despite a trillion $ of income form oil.

Dream on Spinny...Chavy was just another banana republic dictator masquerading as the people's socialist saviour

Sounds like the democratic England ;)

Gordon: I would expect nothing more from a slave to capitalist imperialism. Feel free to advocate your ideology...Maybe you can explain why Venezuala profited while the capitalist west was being screwed by the banks and big business? Why is Chavez so loved by his people while your Banks, Businesses and Government are so condemned by their slaves?

Why folk believe that Capitalism is the cure for the problems created by Capitalism is beyond me. The fall of communism ensured that Communism was disacredited. Why doesn't the fall of Capitalism ensure that Capitalism is discredited? Fear of Communism?

Where do you live?

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 19:08:51 GMT
Spin says:
Gordon: Where do I live? Community, state, nation or continent?

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 19:09:35 GMT
More tripe from Spinny. Capitalists screwing capitalists.

Where do you live and what do you do for a living?

Chav was <<loved by his people>>...Lol. Because he owned the media and threw 'the people' small change, while he and his cronies played at Socialism, skimmed off the top and let the country rot. Even the oil industry, which his so called socialism lived off, is semi derelict now thanks to his regime's incompetence.

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 19:14:45 GMT
Is that a rhetorical question ?

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 19:22:10 GMT
Spin says:
Gordon: You are aware that your capitalist society is currently in a recession? You are aware that money is being taken from the poor to enable the rich? You do know that the taxpayer bailed out your heroes? NO? Why then do you contribute to threads on subjects you obviously know nothing about?

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Mar 2013 20:24:35 GMT
Spin...beloved is a master of 'blowing the hot air'...his mates, sorry, his mate calls him...old big 'ed.
