  • In the Green Room: Venezuelan Governors

    Deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya is sitting in a white jeep yards away from the Honduran border, according to the Washington Post just minutes ago. “It was unclear if Zelaya would try to cross into Honduras where the de facto government says it will arrest him,” the Post reports.

    Heritage’s Ray Walser recently wrote:

    Zelaya vows to return to Honduras in the next few days, increasing the chances of bloodshed and political instability. Zelaya’s return will breed the politics of polarization, Marxian class struggle, and the radical brew of leftist/revolutionary doctrine and practice that accompanies the advance of Hugo Chavez and his militants in Latin America.

    Chavez, however, has his hands full in his own country of Venezuela. The three men causing him trouble are Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezma and the governors of two states, Pablo Pérez of Zulia and César Pérez Vivas of Tachira, all three of whom visited Heritage this week. The two governors sat down with the Foundry and bravely shared their opinions on the value and need of real liberty and democracy.

      Gee, Nations do not want to be led by Dictators. They do not want them in their Country. The Obama Administration wants them there! Wonder why? Maybe its just that "Good Old Boy" thing with Dictators!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer
