A Glimmer of Hope and Change

Good thing Senator Sanders isn't running for president in Venezuela.

The house that Hugo Chavez built is crumbling and the people have had enough to overcome the security power of the socialist state he built to intimidate them:

Venezuela's opposition rejoiced Monday after its shock triumph in legislative elections and waited anxiously for the final tally to see whether it secured a two-thirds supermajority that could dramatically wrest power from President Nicolas Maduro after 17 years of socialist rule.

I know. It's hard to imagine that the system this man built to run an oil-rich country could go off the rails so badly.

There is a lot of damage to undo. And Maduro still holds the presidency, so the socialists have the chance to block reform and create new problems.

Or just go full dictatorship route.
