We will sit back and watch Venezuelans vote on Sunday.
The good news is that people will vote. The bad news is that the Chavez regime has rigged things to such an extent that fraud may actually be the real winner.
Nevertheless, I am optimistic because Venezuela is a country desperately in need of change and honest leadership.
Hugo Chavez has been a disaster. He has mismanaged the nation's resources. He has interfered in other countries' elections, such as Bolivia, Peru and even Mexico.
Hugo Chavez represents a threat to Colombia, a friend recovering from war and slowly turning itself into a real success story in Latin America. (We thank Pres Uribe for his courageous leadership)
Hugo Chavez has invited Iran, and some of the world's worst elements, into the country. This is a disaster for Venezuela and a direct threat to the national security of the US.
Last, but not least, Hugo Chavez is the latest "sugar daddy" of Cuba's corrupt and failed dictatorship. (It would be more appropriate to say "oil daddy" since the Chavez regime maintains Cuba with cheap energy)
We encourage our friends in Venezuela to support Sr. Henrique Capriles-Radonski, an alternative to the crony capitalism, corruption and mismanagement of the economy.
Venezuela needs to kick out Chavez.
Venezuela needs change and it starts on Sunday.
