Hugo Chavez teaches us a terrifying lesson

October 8, 2012

Well, actually a few terrifying lessons:

  1. Socialism is self-perpetuating.

    The people of Venezuela are suckling on the government teat, and they won’t let go until the milk inevitably runs dry.

    Why should Americans be any different? Obamacare may eventually bankrupt us. But, once in place, it’ll be impossible to repeal.

  2. Chavez was behind in the polls, but still won.

    He won because of point 1 above.

    Even if Romney leads by 10 points, we could be in for an unpleasant surprise on November 6th. So we cannot rest until Barack Obama has been drummed out of office.

  3. No one will save us from ourselves.

    Either we win in less than a month, or we will consign our children to a thousand years of darkness.

    the government teat is not delivering fully yet which means there is this window of opportunity we have to cut off the flow with the election of Romney. I believe it will come to pass since Obamacare is not fully in place and functioning.

    Actually the lesson is that Chavez knows how to rig the polls. I’m surprised the challenger conceded so quickly. They either threatened him, or recruited him in the first place.

    Venezuela is involved with some of the voting machine companies in the US as well.

    The pursuit of socialism can only be conducted by the willfully ignorant fools (liberals), or the genuinely ignorant masses (uninformed/uneducated).

    In this regard, 0bama has been extremely useful as he has helped to inform and educate the genuinely ignorant, (through his massive debt and many socialist failures) while simultaneously exposing and isolating the willfully ignorant liberals for the frauds they are.

    No matter what your opinion of 0bama may be, there is on denying that he has exposed the failures of the liberal/progressive/socialist ideology, and perhaps (through his many failures) he helped the American people to cease their descent into the cesspool of that failed ideology. At the very least, he may have slowed that descent, now that people can see liberalism for the failure it is.
