Hugo Chavez believes that he alone can lead the nation of Venezuela and if, by accident, the opposition candidate, Henri Capriles has won the election the forces of right and justice would have been defeated. Hugo has spent years dolling out hundreds of millions to the poor and disadvantaged in order to purchase their allegiance. Of course, there is nothing wrong with a few bucks being given to the faithful, but when one uses the government controlled media and warns government employees to vote the right way, then something is rotten in the state of Venezuela.
He won the election in a free election, however there was nothing very fair about this election. Hugo purchased the vote. Hopefully, he learns that about half the population does not wish his version of democracy. Frankly, there is scant hope he can become a leader of ALL THE PEOPLE!
