Texas Senator gets it right on Chavez

March 6, 2013

I was appalled when I heard some of the reports about the recent demise of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Democrat Rep. Serrano (NY) tweeted Chavez “was a leader that understood the needs of the poor. He was committed to empowering the powerless. R.I.P.” !!!WHAT!!!

ABC News said Chavez "was revered by Venezuela’s poor, who considered him one of their own..." !!!WHAT!!!

The moron actor Sean Penn called him a "great hero". !!!WHAT!!!

I could go on but Breitbart did a good job of compiling the particulars (see the source link below).

So, it was a blessing to run across a statement that was not revisionist history.

This week, President Hugo Chavez went to meet his Maker. His legacy will not soon be forgotten. Chavez's death has left the people of Venezuela with the world's 2nd highest misery index, 4th highest murder rate, and a 22% inflation rate. His record is a prime example of how socialist policies degrade freedom, stifle innovation and, and hurt those least off in society. Regimes like those under Chavez are a stark reminder of how much we have to be thankful for here in America, where our Constitution guarantees our liberty and ensures freedom to pursue opportunity, no matter one's background, race, or status.

Our prayers are with the people of Venezuela. We can only hope that the results of Chavez's tragic record will spur Venezuela to fight for a brighter, freer future.
