Venezuela: Hugo Chavez is still dead

Today is the anniversary of the official announcement of Hugo Chávez’s dead. The Communist regime held a parade:

We don’t really know for sure if he actually died on March 5, 2013, or what he died of (other than an unspecified cancer that the “excellent Cuban healthcare system” couldn’t do anything about), but a year later, he continues to be the fraud that keeps on giving:

All of his promises were a fraud because at the end we had become a more divided society, a more dependent society, a less creative society, a poorer society. And a morally miserable society.

But he reserved his two biggest frauds for last.

One was that for a nationalist he had no qualms in surrendering the orientation of the country to a colonial power that was so much inferior in quality than the colonized victim.

The other was that he run for reelection in 2012 knowing full well that he was going to die within months of the vote. To make sure that yet again an election under false pretenses could be carried out he decided late 2010 to destroy the economic independence of the country, starting with the destruction of parliament.

His place of burial, the Cuartel de la Montaña, is “a monument to an unknown legacy” to Venezuelan blogger Emiliana Duarte; to former Colombian president Álvaro Uribe the legacy is clear:

(In Venezuela), little by little, (the Maduro regime) is erecting another Cuba, not one with 11 million inhabitants but with 28 million, with petroleum, in alliance with nuclear powers from the East, with 2,216 kilometers of frontier with (Colombia), which is eliminating the independence between institutions, which is eliminating private enterprise, and creativity, and which is confident that it won’t fail like the old communism (failed) because petroleum makes the difference.

But it is condemned to fail, even if it has petroleum.

The history of humanity has demonstrated that economies fail without private initiative because people become dull and creativity disappears.

The people of Cuba are a poor people, education and health care did not work because since there was no private enterprise the advances (made) in education and health did not translate into the wellbeing of the citizenry and since today there (still) is no private enterprise education and health care (in Cuba) have stagnated, among other things…all communisms have failed because they don’t have the revolution of communications.

And in good measure the failure of Cuba…what is owed to? To the Latin American permissiveness towards the Cuban dictatorship… and I fear greatly that the Latin American permissiveness towards the dictatorship of Venezuela is doing great harm to the people of Venezuela. (continues here)

At least Panama has cut off diplomatic relations. CORRECTION: Maduro cut off relations. See follow-up post.

While clinics are tear-gassed,

the Maduro regime continues its propagandizing; take the time to read Debunking the Venezuelan Government’s Defense.

Chávez’s legacy? A broken country, a broken society.

It will take years to undo the harm Chavismo is inflicting on its people.
