    “Socialist Party official Diosdado Cabello ”

    And this is how MercoPress describes the most powerfull man in Vnzla?

    A 'party official'?!!?!?!!?!! This man governs and rapes Vnzla. How rich has he got? Ask HSBC!!!!!!!! etc.

    Back to the article, the dictatorship has begun.

    Kafka would turn in his grave to see this in the modern world.

    Did we learn nothing from his warnings?

    I am so sick of these fuckers....

    I agree, this is how it starts.

    I shudder to think of how it ends with all the Cuba arseholes 'helping'.

    Why the right wing parties always undermine democracy? Why right-wing parties can not wait for the right time to gain power (elections)?

    I can not understand. They call themselves democrats but are actually disguised dictators.

    Viva a Venezuela!

    Fascism and nazism coming into view. Both used to break into properties to 'arrest' people that the regime didn't like. MADurine is a paranoid maniac. Time for a real coup!

    “I can not understand. They call themselves democrats but are actually disguised dictators.”

    Describes Chavez and Maduro perfectly.

    Hardly surprising Brasileiro can't understand. I blame it on his education.

    @3 brASSHOLE (getting really smelly.....)
    You have a fixation about right wing parties - just for your info, there are NO right-wing parties in Latin America....only center-left and far-left (latter, same as communist).
    Go back to school and learn the's exactly where the 'commie' parties are installed, that everything (economy, social environment) is totally screwed.
    The fact you think VZ is 'great', just shows how ignorant and stupid you are...If you want, I'll buy you a one-way ticket to VZ....

    This is a pointed question to all the trolls who profess democracy and South American allegiance.


    A straight answer would be nice without deflections referring to other countries......can you trolls answer this simple question?

    Don't hide under a thinly laced veil of democracy because most of those countries are not you fucking steaming heap of shit. How did you get so stupid? Are you an experiment of nazi resettlement scientist gone bad? I can't believe anyone can be as stupid as you naturally. And I hate to burst your stupid bubble but must against my desires, Puerto Rico in the it or not they want to stay that way too. Trust me I hate those La Cucaracha's also....parasites living off the USA.

    BTW brasshole....have you read about the Puerto Rican who won the USA lottery called powerball? She won U$ 101 million.......maybe you can ask her for a loan out of latin american unity.

    Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything truly wrong, he was arrested.
    This will not end well.

    I've come to the conclusion the Brasileiro has monopolized stupidity and implore that he ceases his imperialist ways of spreading stupidity. With the exception of Brasileiro, none of the trolls can possibly believe Venezuela possess any tenants of democracy. Even when evil Chubby Chavo (praise be to his death) was alive, calling that a democracy was by far a stretch. But.......not to those in SA who have never experienced democracy. More people are going to die in Venezuela........die in protest marchs, die in arrests, die for the right to live in dignity and some freedom.......not to mention all the things missing in life in Venezuela. Venezuela is a living powder keg.
