    He will either kill the opposition or find a 'legal' way to make himself life dictator with sham elections, via Castro, his hero.

    Far be it from me to suggest interference in the Venezuelan election, but America should do everything it legally can to support the candidacy of Rosales against Chavez. Maybe we should flood the Venezuelan market with very cheap food marked: “Best wishes, Manuel Rosales”

    I think there is very little the US can do. Same as Cuba. We are a victim of our own 'bigness.'

    How is he toast? I think that might be wishful thinking on your part.

    From your link.

    Oh...and not for nothing, we don't really have any business inserting ourselves into another country's elections, regardless of whether we like the leader or not. What would you say if some foreign country tried to influence OUR elections?

    I was being facetious about the food. Remember it is Chavez who is dumping cheap oil into the Northeast to influence American politics and purchase friends. But American interference in Venezuela? Would that be analogous to the leftist Euros that tried to defeat Bush by interfering in Ohio during our last Presidential election?

    And how is Chavez influencing "American politics"? The way I see it is that its not designed to influence OUR politics, but to influence HIS base at home....

    And what leftist Euros you talking about? Are we whining about Soros? Last I heard foreign nationals can't put money into our campaigns. And the only "influence" over the vote I know about in Ohio was Blackwell not letting people register to vote except on "fifty-weight paper" (when even the govt-printed forms weren't that weight) and putting too few voting machines in dem precincts and about double what was necessary in repub precincts.

    But nice deflection ;) :dance:

    No deflection and I have no idea what you are talking about regarding Soros. Never heard of "Operation Clark County" from that leftist British rag the Guardian? Well, the following article may be of interest.

    he is toast becasue i say so.

    you say bush is stupid ...i say chavez is toast.

    what the hell does your second paragraph have to do with chavez being toast? and, if cahvez can take private oil companies is it beyond the pale that he would control the opinion poles that show him leading?
