The Bolivarian Revolution is back on track in Venezuela

Dear Editor,

So, just as I expected, President Nicholas Maduro's United Socialist Party (PSUV) won 17 of the 23 governorships that were up for grabs in the recent gubernatorial elections in Venezuela.

The Western “international” media might be able to fool people outside of Venezuela with their psychological warfare-based propaganda, but they cannot fool the people who actually live in Venezuela and know first-hand what is going on.

The reality is that the white, elitist, fascist and racist Opposition overplayed their hand and “woke up” the masses of working-class Venezuelans with their campaign of orchestrated violent street protests (inclusive of the burning assault on several black or dark-skinned Venezuelans), orchestrated shortages of a number of consumer items, and treasonous calls for the United States of America to strangle the Venezuelan economy and to invade and otherwise attack the country militarily.

They so turned off the working class that, on July 30, 2017, over eight million adult citizens defied the Opposition boycott and their intimidatory threats of violence and voted for the establishment of a National Constituent Assembly to discuss and analyse all the current problems and predicaments facing the country, and to devise new governance structures and policies to respond to said problems and predicaments.

This was a sure signal that the working class — a significant number of whom had refused to vote in the 2015 National Assembly elections, thereby permitting the Opposition to win control of the National Assembly — were energised once again and would support their party — the PSUV — in the gubernatorial elections of Sunday, October 15, 2017.

So the socialist, anti-imperialist PSUV is back on track with their Bolivarian Revolution. And it is onward now to a re-election victory for President Maduro in the presidential elections of 2018.

In the immortal words of former Prime Minister of Barbados Erskine Sandiford, the American Government and its puppet news media could “like it or lump it”.

Venezuela belongs to no one but the people of Venezuela.
