40. Yes it does, Chavez is showing his colors to the world
I live in Venezuela, and get to see his thugish anti democratic behavior all the time. We have a lot of human rights abuses going on, and the Chavez regime is really corrupt. But many of you don't understand its true nature. This is giving you a glimpse: Chavez is a neo-fascist kleptocrat, he thrives in personality worship, and can be considered to be mentally ill.
