Two weeks ago, the people of Argentina made a peaceful turn to the right. Yesterday, Venezuela made a sharp turn away from “Chavizmo”.
Socialism has not been good for Latin America. It has created bloated governments, corrupt public sector unions and high taxes. The net result is an underachieving economy.
Like Cuba, socialism in Venezuela was also anti-democratic. It put the opposition in jail, closed media and intimidated voters.
Congratulations to our friends in Venezuela. They put a fatal dagger in “Chavizmo”.
