Even during the regime of George Bush's neocon Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, in his speech at the United Nations summed up the Bush presidency for the world. I am quoting Chavez from memory, not verbatim: "Yesterday there was Satan himself, speaking as if the whole world belonged to him. The smell of sulfur is felt now. "
Chavez — a favorite horror story of the American Right (conservatives. — Ed.) Because Chavez helps the people instead to pump the last of them in favor of the rich — a path that chose Washington. While Washington has started on the world all but one percent of the population, Chavez has cut poverty in half, doubled enrollment in universities and provided medical care and pensions to millions of Venezuelans who did not exist before.
No wonder why he was chosen for a fourth term, despite the millions of dollars invested by Washington in the campaign Chavez opponent.
While the U.S. and the EU preach neoliberalism — supremacy of capital over labor, the South American politicians who reject the path of Washington, elected and re-elected in Venezuela, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Bolivia.
That moral principles Ecuadorian government, not the U.S., allowed to grant political asylum to the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. Washington provides shelter only if it is necessary to put the opponent in an awkward position.
In contrast, countries in South America, whose governments reject the traditional hegemony of Washington, the American political elite, whether Republicans or Democrats are in line with the rich against the American people.
Republican candidate Mitt Romney promised to cut taxes for the rich — taxes, which are now nowhere below and to block the restriction appetites gangsters financial sector, privatize social security and state program of medical care.
Privatization of Social Security and medical assistance programs — is the transformation of Americans in income taxes of private corporations. In the hands of the Republicans privatization means only one thing: to cut benefits and use tax funds to increase the income of the private sector. Politics Romney will bring people to sacrifice for the sake of one percent of the population.
Unfortunately, the Democrats, and if a lesser evil, but still evil. It makes no sense to vote for the re-election of the president, who has legalized the destruction of the regime of President Bush of the U.S. Constitution, with the president, who took the next step in legitimizing the murder of U.S. citizens without due process proceedings, and who did nothing to stop the use of the American people one percent of the population.
According to Gerald Celente (Gerald Celente), given in the autumn edition of the Trends Journal, «when faced with the choice of two evils, do not you vote for the lesser evil. You boykotiruesh elections and do not vote for all. Greater or lesser evil is evil. "
If the Americans had at least some common sense, in November, no one would have come to vote. Whoever wins, it will be a defeat for the American people.
The victory of Obama or Romney is very different from the victory of Chavez. Here is how Lula da Silva (Lula da Silva), the popular former president of Brazil, said this: "Chavez's victory — a victory for all the peoples of Latin America. This is another blow to imperialism. " Washington, using the almighty dollar, was unable to buy the Venezuelan voter.
How would explain the victory of Obama or Romney? The answer depends on which of the candidates best interest of Israel, who are more profitable for Wall Street and for the agricultural business, from whom more chances to attack Iran, and who are more likely to be throwing activists protesting against the economic and foreign policy, in jail indefinitely, as domestic extremists.
Of winning the election either Romney or Obama will benefit only the people close to the oligarchy that controls America.
