Now virtually everybody as something to eat in their tables and Venezuela has shared all that wealth with all its citizens. Do you think all those millions of people are retards who voted for him are just puppets who just agree with all th officialist press while having nothing? No, they vote for him because they have seen how education has reached everyone and nobody is starving in the streets.Yes, that's socialism, something Americans dread but it has worked there for all those million of people who had NOTHING and now has the basics and they are grateful for this and adore Chávez for that. Of course, wealthy people and those American vultures who expoiled their oil for years are so beligarent against him.
I don't know if you are venezuelan or not bur the things are way more complicated than that. He's not winning for those reasons.
This is a very long subject but of couse it's not what the nedia is.
