83. Because democracy is working
They listen to all sides in the legislative process, they don't take power and change the entire government simply because they have a majority, and they don't say they're going to hold elections and then play multiple games to keep the elections from happening. I'm not arguing against socialism as a form of government, I'm arguing against the way Chavez is implementing it and the fact that if he keeps going, he could easily become another dictator and Venezuela could be another Cuba. And while that isn't the worst thing in the world, it isn't the best either. And it sure as hell isn't democracy.
