43. He's not a dictator and in light of the history of South America's national
leaders, I would have to say that he is a hero.

That is not to say that he is wholly altruistic in his actions and ambitions, but he has sparked, what can only be described as, a revolution throughout the rest of the continent. A continent that, thanks primarily to amerikan intervention on the behalf of amerikan corporations, has been subjugated, tortured, and looted for over a century, all so that we could achieve "the American Dream" and our own ruling class could become the world despots that we see today.

And no, we haven't had enough Chavez posts yet.
