Today, people in Venezuela will vote in the most important election in recent US-Latin America history.
On one side, Hugo Chavez is running for reelection by rigging the elections. He does not have a record. He has mismanaged Venezuela and destroyed a country. He has also stuck his nose in elections all over. He is keeping the Castro dictatorship afloat with oil subsidies. Last, but not least, he has developed friendships with characters in Iran, Syria and every other anti-US corner in the planet.
On the other side, Henrique Capriles represents a candidate who believes in free markets & focusing on making Venezuela a better country. Pres Capriles will not interfere in elections or use the nation's "petro-dollars" to create anti-US relationships.
We spoke with Daniel Duquenal on Saturday night. Daniel believes that Capriles will win a majority of the popular vote.
We will sit back and wait for the results. However, Pres BO needs to make it very clear that the US will not recognize the results if they are rigged.
We repeat that Pres BO "went mute" on Iran in 2009. He needs to "go very loud in 2012" and support the people of Venezuela.
