    Venezuela: Profligacy puts Chávez’s dream at risk

    Contrary to what the title claims, Thugo’s dream is neither a prosperous Venezuela nor a well-run PDVSA. Thugo’s dream is simply to rule Venezuela for the next 30 years. If the country becomes impoverished as a result of his rule, no problem for Thugo, as long as he can maintain himself in power. After all the Yanquis de Mierda can be blamed for any problem.

    You’re absolutely right, Gringo. Every thing Chavez does only serves 1 purpose: to consolidate power around himself.
