Latin America grows, Venezuela sinks

I am not the one saying it, it is the New York Times under the pen of Simon Romero.  The fact of the matter is that under any angle you try to look at it, Venezuela is sinking fast, with no hope of any significant recovery any time soon.  And even the so much vaunted dubious health results are brought into question as numerous epidemics haunt us, from Dengue to Malaria to a slight tendency in an increase in childbirth death (heard on Union Radio this morning).  Never mind our crime rate country wide whose numbers can only compare with the local Northern Mexico rates under drug traffic effect.

Chavismo has been a catastrophic failure and yet too many people still do not see it.  How come?

  2. I guess each has his own theory.My theory is self- absorption.Many people simply refuse to see the overall picture and concentrate only on their own small lives.They get used to their little lives, live in their little bubbles, and concern themselves NOT with reality.

This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
