Hugo Chavez Now Seizing Homes

Hopefully the election results will prevent Comrade Obama from pushing his agenda any further. We don’t want to end up like Venezuela, where Big Government is now confiscating private homes:

Chavez promised Sunday to crack down on construction and real estate companies that he accused of unjustly boosting prices, which he labeled “housing fraud.”

The president, a self-proclaimed revolutionary who idolizes Cuba’s Fidel Castro and is currently on a visit to Havana, called his decision last week to order the expropriation of six residential complexes and “the temporary occupation” of eight gated communities in Caracas and other cities “an act of justice.”

Venezuelans worry that this will lead to more pro-Chavez squatters occupying homes that are under construction, just as Obama’s ACORN friends have invaded and occupied homes that belong to others.

Fortunately, even in Venezuela, there is still resistance to socialism.

Opposition politician Julio Borges accused Chavez on Sunday of trampling private-property rights and steering Venezuela toward Cuba-style communism.

Borges told a news conference that Venezuelans don’t want to live in “a country of slaves, where the government is the owner of everything and the people aren’t owners of anything.”

Good thing Borges isn’t American; the media would denounce his views as extremist and call him a racist and a “teabagger.”
