  • Dictadura, dictatorship, dictator, dictator. Just image for a second a right government would do this horrendous act of not respect for democracy. How those dated lefties be condemning this act. But I’m sure because it’s a Maduro is a CNN puppet of Raul Castro they would find justification.

  • It is only a matter of time before the Venezuelan people decide that they have suffered enough and rise up to replace this clown the way Bolivians replaced Evo Morales.
