Commitment math and a phone call..

I am getting really tired of all the facebook updates right now. I get it that losing is hard but shouting ‘fraude’ and proving it with a math equation that a seven year old could do better is not the best thing to do. Black flags with ‘hasta quando’ is not either.

Yes, people got financial support, and every trick in the book was used. But besides that, a lot of supporters showed commitment. Waking up early and getting their neighbours to vote, their cousins, their family. They showed a lot of us what real support for a candidate consist of.

The opposition did a good job, but there is still a lot of work to be done. For instance I know people who always shout how bad Chavez is for the country and who did not even vote.. Also the tricks used by the chavista’s could also be used by the opposition. A large part of the opposition is financially well of, so why not contribute financially to your candidate? A lot of well of chavista’s did.

I think Capriles knows there are bridges that need to be build. He is doing a great job. I was surprised about the phone call between the two camps. Good to see some de-polarization, and kuddo’s to Capriles. I do not know a lot of people who can react like this after being called a faggot.. I do not know what is going to happen in the near future, but it should be interesting to say the least. And no, it is not the end of the world, it is already 14 years like this.

    I think a push through with the revolution is very likely, taking advantage of the votes’ balsam. That could mean a much more deprived scenario for all here in Venezuela.
    As you I don’t even bother to mention the word fraude, is for viejitas de San Roman esa mierda. But I think we have to be careful with the REP, at least to clean it properly.

    I agree diplomacy and alliances, can open a way over the cliff of Venezuela’s stagnant doom bottom!
    To better an established idiosyncrasy [i-deo-sin-crazy] is very hard to build upon for any real progress or bettering of what Venezuela is today!
    Venezuela’s justice system has gone down the road too far to be a mere name thing!
    You revert this tendency!
    Nobody really wants to go back to Venezuela of those that have managed to leave!
    When will Venezuela have local airlines again authorized to USA, or to Merida airport?

      Hi there,

      You can also comment in Spanish if you want. Venezuela is a young democracy. It still has a long way to go. The first thing that needs to be resolved is the inequality. It is the main cause of all the problems. Chavez is a populist but was the first to address this. Hence the end result of the elections.

      We will see what the future brings us, but right now I think this what is good for the country

      I could not agree more. It is a matter of finding an equilibrium. Venezuela went from hard right to hard left and finding alliances is what matter now.
      Thank you for your contribution
