I wonder who voted for the ruling PSUV? I wondered who voted for Chavez?
Socialism was great so long as the "right people" were in charge, or so they thought. The socialists were voted into office, and never had any intention of giving up power.
It's not who votes that counts - it's who counts the votes......and who counts the votes is who the Venezuelans voted for - the PSUV, which was formed from a number of socialist parties that merged together.
Once the voters swept in the Chavismos - the results were predictable.
Regardless of who is right or wrong - it still doesn't mean the U.S. taxpayer needs to shell out to fix their mess.
That’s one way of looking at it.
