Venezuela votes for socialism

Published Feb 18, 2009 4:54 PM

On Feb. 15, Venezuelans lined up at the polls to vote “si” or "no" on term limits for elected officials including President Hugo Chávez, and the people have spoken. Nearly 55 percent of the voters decided in favor of having indefinite term limits. The struggle amongst the Venezuelan people for a socialist revolution has far from died as the media would have you believe. This vote, as said President Chávez, “was a vote for socialism.” Above, thousands of people celebrate in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas following the vote.
