This article cites examples showing that El Presidente Chávez has become weaker in both spirit and body. If the Venezuelan presidential election is held as scheduled on October 7th, and if as former President Carter is reported to have proclaimed last week “the election process in Venezuela is the best in the world,” it is becoming increasingly likely that Chávez faces a drubbing.

The Devil's Excrement

While President Hugo Chavez has made a valiant effort to campaign or appear to be campaigning as much as opposition candidate Henrique Capriles, his efforts to appear more in public seem to be having the opposite effect. Every time Chavez appears in public, it seems to take a toll on him, forcing him to cancel rallies that had been announced previously.

Last week, President Chavez was not that visible until his Apure appearance, which in itself was a surprise as he should have no problem winning that state. In that appearance he left some doubts about both his health and his emotional state that left many questions lingering in the air.

The next day Chavez was supposed to appear in Los Teques to inaugurate four subway stations, but he failed to show up, sending his Vice-President instead in a city that is likely to go for Capriles.

  1. Thanks for the insights, Jim.

  2. Ah, Jimmy Carter. Hugito¡s best friend.

    In theory, we have a perfect voting system here. It is all electronic, which also produces a paper ballot of the vote and each voter must have their voter ID and have their thumb print read by a finger print scaner. After the polls close, a percentage of the A few problems.

    !. Any computer can be hacked.

    2. The boxes of paper ballots to be counted are not chosen at random. Each polling place is under the direction of a Chaista because they are the majority in Congress. That person decides which boxes will be counted manually.

    3. People that the government has given multiple voter ID’s under different names can vote several times at different polling places where they are registered. Here is how the scam works. Voter, jose, goes to his poll and gives the attendent his voter ID. They pull up his data on a computer. They ask him to put his thumb on the digital print reader and the computer compares it to the print on his voter ID. It matches and he votes. Then he goes to another poll a gives voter ID under the name of Juan. Same processdure and his thumb print matches the one they have for Juan. Etc. Etc.

    With so many corrupt Chavistas and Cubanos, it wouldn’t be all that hard to alter the results.

    my wife and i over hear people who should be Chavista complaining about the government with anger in their voices. What we don’t hear is any critisizing of Chavez.

    Chavez is not well and he does play on the sympathis of the people. We will know very shortly what future Venezuela has.
