And all the libs are agreeing with him. Check out the discussion. they are going insane over how awesome Chavez is. The actually is a dictator. and they completely support him because he spoke badly about President Bush. This is insane.

And of course, Chavez is trying to get his nation as one of the non-permanent members of the security council this year. Can you imagine a world where we have to go to dictators to get permission to defend ourselves?

This guy's basic platform to speak comes from the oil wealth in Venezuela.

We need to get off of our need for oil. No more oil dependency, the less we have to listen to people like Chavez and Ahmadinejad, the better off we are.

His other "platform" is socialism which is what all the liberals can identify with.

In his WSF speech, Chavez insisted that “capitalism could not be transcended from within capitalism itself, but through socialism”. On February 25, addressing the 4th International Conference on Social Debt in Caracas, Chavez re-emphasised the point. He declared “if not capitalism, then what? I have no doubt, it's socialism”, according to Pascal Fletcher’s account for Reuters, which Fletcher titled: “Defying the US, Chavez embraces socialism”. Then, two days later, came the Hello President program, where Chavez said: “I am convinced that the way to build a new and better world is not capitalism. Capitalism leads us straight to hell”.
Chavez’s presidency is based on popular support and mobilisation. Pro-Chavez forces have won nine national elections in the last six years, including a referendum on whether or not to recall Chavez from the presidency. A key part of the Bolivarian revolution has been organising the poor majority into institutions of power so they can directly control their lives. Chavez argued that the “tools for building socialism” were these popular organisations already constructed as part of the struggle to create “participatory democracy”.

Chavez has been in the process of destroying private ownership in Venezuela, of course placing all oil companies under state ownership, raising taxes, and making the government all-powerful. It's enough to make a liberal swoon.

Of course socialism will eventually have the effect of dropping output due to sabotage and poor management as nobody has a real stake in the profits of a government-owned company. Already there have been problems along this line and of course the Chavez method to "fix" the problem is force. No wonder he's such a buddy to Cuba, Iran, and China.
