WAR: Some Things Even Hugo Can't Fix

Venezuelan voters reject Hugo Chavez' effort to get an electoral mandate to be president-for-life and impose wholesale socialism on the nation (as opposed to the creeping socialism and dictatorship he's been working at for years).

Liberty is good. People tend to resist when the question of surrendering it entirely is put to them quite that directly.

I will be waiting to see if he can lost two in a row. Chavez has always conveyed the impression that he does not take kindly to being denied.

The Sandanistas lost in Nicaragua unexpectedly, and even though they are back at this time (due to a deal with the devil made by their predecessors), I think they could just as easily be gone the next election. Will Chavez be as easy to get rid of? Is there any beleif that elections in Venezuala are not rigged? For all I know, his 49-51% loss may really have been a 40-60% loss, but he just did not manipulate the counting as successfully as he has in the past.
