Comrade Chavez Re-Elected in Venezuela
This is SO not a surprise.
Comrade Hugo Chavez was re-elected in Venezuela. He has pledged to push for a more "radical" form of socialism as Comrade Chavez moves himself and his country further ot the left into totalitarianism. He also intends to form a "broader" against United States influence in Latin America.

Chavez, who says he sees Fidel Castro as a father, dedicated his victory to the ailing 80-year-old Cuban leader, and called it a blow against President Bush.
"It's another defeat for the devil, who tries to dominate the world," Chavez told the crowd of red-shirted supporters, who listened to him under pouring rain. "Down with imperialism. We need a new world."
All this from a man who has allied himself with roque states that support terrorism: Iran and Syria.
His victory would be better described as a victory for totalitarianism and a defeat for Liberty and Human Rights in this south American nation.
Rosales, a key opponent, has stated he will continue to oppose Chavez and his government. How long before he gets tossed in prison for his opposition?
