In theory the nation of Venezuela is a democratic society in which there are supposedly the semblance of free elections. Since this nation came under the control of Hugo Chavez the government has existed for the right of his followers to continue in office. After his death, former bus driver Nicolas Maduro became the president. An election is coming up next week and during the campaign, opposition leaders have wound up in jail or beaten up.
Yesterday, Luis Diaz, head of the Democratic Action Party was gunned down. Ten bullets hit his body. Just another casualty in the quest for power of Maduro. Oh, there will be an investigation.
