Venezuela Steps Toward Communism
According to a FoxNews piece, Comrade Hugo Chavez, the "I wanna be president for life" leader of Venezuela has announced plans to nationalize all of Venezuela's telecom and electrical companies as well as amend that country's constitution to a socialist "republic."
During a televised speech he proclaimed, "All of that which was privatized, let it be nationalized."
I have no doubt that the media (print and broadcast) will be next on his hit list of industries that should be controlled by the government, or, more accurately, by El Presidente Comrade Chavez.
Where socialism rules, there you will NOT find Liberty. There will, however, be totalitarianism.
I'd ask what Jazz and Annarboriter would say, but they haven't posted since this earlier piece on Comrade Chavez
