This page appears fine to me. Citations are needed throughout the article, but as far as everything else goes, I approve. ColinR 05:18, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Thanks

I'll get to work on some citations, but thankyou for accepting it, It's good to see some objectivity on this site. =)

This article is surprisingly neutral

I'm impressed that this article is surprisingly neutral towards Chavez, I figured it would call him a totalitarian communist.--DemocraticSocialist 11:50, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

He's more of a greedy communist robber baron. RobS 16:36, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

It must be liberal subversion hahahaha--DemocraticSocialist 11:51, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

Sorry to burst the bubble. He has been referred to as a dictator here. Have patience this article will eventually follow suit. Auld Nick 11:59, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

I knew it was too good to be true. While Castro is a dictator, Chavez who was elected by almost two thirds of the population is clearly not --DemocraticSocialist 14:58, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

We're waiting for Castro to die before her passes the baton. RobS 16:27, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

Dictator!!!!????

How can someone who is democratically elected be referred to as a dictator --ScandalousHegemony 23:57, 23 May 2007 (EDT)

How about that Hitler guy in 1933? Karajou 21:16, 30 May 2007 (EDT)
...Who was not democratically elected. --Ĥøĵĭmåçħôńğtalk 21:17, 30 May 2007 (EDT)
Maybe the question should be, "how can someone who continues to hold democratic elections at the frequency prescribed in the nations constitution (Like Mr. Chavez for example) be called a dictator?" The answer to that question is, he cannot. Because he isn't. Like it or not, Hugo Chavez is the democraticly elected leader of a democratic country and any suggestion that he is a dictator is little more than an insult to democracy. How can this website call Chavez a Dictator, but not someone like General Pinochet of Chile??? This 'encyclopedia' gets progressively more ridiculous by the day. Unless someone either 'locks this page for editing' or gives me some very good evidence to suggest that I am wrong about Mr. Chavez and his democratic government I will delete the word 'Dictator' from this entry.
Oh look, how suprising. It's already been locked. That's it. I've had enough of Conservapedia. You have to look less hard to find the truth in UNcyclopedia than Conservapedia. At least they admit they are a comedy parody of the truth. And at least they dont get all angry because I choose to spell suprising with an 's' instead of a 'z'.



It doesn't matter how he got into power, especially if he significantly increases his power while in office. DanH 21:19, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

Chavez does not have a record of increasing his power, merely changing the economy to having a socialist slant. --Ĥøĵĭmåçħôńğtalk 21:21, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

I used to have neighbors from Venezuela whose relatives were on Chavez's hit list. DanH 21:28, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

chavez IS NOT a dictator

you conservatives all suck. how can someone who was democratically elected be considered a dictator? you are all a bunch of imperialist fascists!

Typical non-spelling, America-hating fascist liberal, accusing others of fascism! Go to Venezuela. ScorpionVote for Pedro 14:14, 29 November 2007 (EST)

Irony

Guys, you lost me at "Repressive Dictator". Can you really not see the irony in this skewed, worthless article namecalling democratically elected foreign (to you) leaders?. Someone please kill this article as it is embarassed by it's own existence.

Can anyone actually explain the point of this article; a blinkered, one sided repressive waste of time projecting its own ignorance onto others. Really there is no point to it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mrivpond (talk)

What a disgrace.

How can anyone seriously type that he is a repressive dictator? He was democratically election every single time, his new bid to remove term limits is being done by REFERENDUM.. are you guys on something, how is he a dictator in ANY WAY?

And don't get me started on this RCTV stuff, he closed it down because it actively called for a violent revolution against him, and then when that actually occured and an ACTUAL DICTATORSHIP was put in place, it just ran anti-Chavez ads the entire time, then when the dictatorship was crumbling as the people fought back to put Chavez back in, instead of running actual news saying this, it showed dramas like the Bold and the Beautiful. And so when it came around the renewing the liscence for it, he refused. ANY COUNTRY WOULD DO THIS, If there was a television channel in the United States actively calling for a violent revolution against the US government and falsifying news, what do you think the US government would do? The exact same. PLUS, RCTV can still be viewed on cable television.

It also is in no way the only anti-Chavez media source in the country, most media in the country are hostile to Chavez. User:Pallawish

So sorry to hear that, Mr. Chavez. I bet you'd rather be like your pal over in North Korea, who has a media that praises and worships him! ScorpionVote for Pedro 14:12, 29 November 2007 (EST)

NOT A DICTATOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CHAVEZ WAS ELECTED WITH TWO THIRDS OF THE VOTE, HOW CAN YOU CALL HIM A DICTATOR. YOUR PRESIDENT WAS ELECTED WITH LESS THAT HALF THE VOTE. --ChavezFan 16:24, 29 October 2007 (EDT)

Two thirds? Wow, Hitler beat him with 92% & Saddam got 99%. Looks like Chavez still has his work cut out for him. Rob Smith 13:18, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
Perhaps ChavezFan would like to go down to Venezuela right now and begin his own newspaper with the expressed purpose of being critical of the government in general, and Chavez in particular. Let's see how long it lasts. Karajou 13:33, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
