From Hugo Chávez’s 2012 campaign platform (emphasis is mine):
“We wish to continue building XXIst Century Bolivarian socialism in Venezuela as an alternative to the savage capitalist model, and through this ensure the greatest sum of social safety, the greatest sum of political stability, and the greatest sum of happiness for our people.”
“We wish to transform Venezuela into a social, economic, and political powerhouse, within this emerging new power that is Latin America and the Caribbean, so that we may continue to guarantee peace in our Americas.”
Rest in peace, Comandante. Your legacy lives on … at Farmatodo Bella Vista.
