    The actual trouble in Venezuela has a name: @Chavezcandangas. During 13 years, he has controled almost all this country. And now that is sick in Cuba, and missing, nobody knows what to do

    In a representative democracy, power is divided among many. But in dictatorships and authoritarian systems, such as Venezuela, power is concentrated in one man. And when that man is missing, the nation is paralyzed. No one dares to make decisions that Chavez, if returned, could retract by his finger will. And with all the uncertainty, the dollar in the Black market and inflation are rising on the black market.
    The official interpretation is that the take over is only a mere "formalism". However, it is the first time that this "formality" isn’t meet, since General Jose Antonio Paez did in 1831.

    The Bolivarian Constitution, originally drafted to benefit Hugo Chavez, is unequivocal. In its Article 231 says that "the successful candidate will take power as president on January 10, the first year of his constitutional term." Then clarifies that if the oath can not be done in the National Assembly, may be made to the High Court. But at no time authorized the election winner not to take the oath or to pass it to another date.

    ¡
    Of course that Chávez didn`t arrive to Caracas to take power on January 10th., He’s very ill after his fourth cancer surgery in the pelvic zone. Obviously Chavez is not present. Therefore, it would be necessary to apply Article 233 and declare it in "absolute failure"or, where appropriate, Article 234 and recognize that there are at least a"temporary absence." [i


    But their supporters are so afraid of him, , Fear is one of the classic forms of rule of the warlords, who even dared to state the obvious: that Chavez is absent. The frightened members of the High Court concluded that Chavez could take up to another date, not specified, and haughtily declared that there are "administrative continuity." None of that says the Constitution. It was removed from the sleeve and fear. Well, not even dared to form a "medical board" as required by the Constitution to determine whether Chavez can continue governing.

    The result of this constitutional violation is a huge confusion. Has Venezuela a legitimate president? Who governs? Are they valid contracts and decisions made by ministers in office? How long it continues: months, years?

    At the absence of the leader, the struggle for power it’s at full strength . Chavistas are betting that they may have chavismo without Chavez. The teams are well trained. The vice president, Nicolás Maduro, with the support of the Castro brothers and Chavez's blessing, stayed, by far, leading the country through the controversial and arbitrary decision of the High Court . But if Chavez’ disease spreads or worsens, the National Assembly president, Diosdado Cabello, could take government leadership and take away the post of Vice President Maduro. No more fake smiles on Venezuelan state television that the embraces of these two leaders, with Maduro rubbing Cabello’s head


    The opposition can complain all they want. But it is clear that their views are not taken into account. Venezuela remains a country that Chavez supporters controls and unless Chavez exits completely out of the political landscape, things are not going to change any time soon. Frustrating, yes. But it is reality. Therefore, perhaps the most wise and prudent is to see how the Chavistas leave the legal and constitutional mess they have made.

    Chavez won the last elections using all government resources. Everyone. Unfair and tricky but got more votes than the united opposition candidate Henrique Capriles. This, however, makes Venezuela a representative democracy. Any democracy also requires a clear separation of powers and that is not the case in Venezuela where Chavez controls the Assembly, the Supreme Court, the army, the Army and the mainstream media. That is not democracy, that's dictatorship.

    Less Chavez would have made a more democratic Venezuela. But it is not the case. Chavez, after the attempted coup in 2002, put aside any democratic pretense, and began to accumulate power by force.

    The main problema of Venezuela is not Chavez’ absence, but the unbridled concentration of authority and resources in one person. Our history is full of strong men with uncontrollable egos in countries that allow them to do this.

    If Chavez would really have thought of Venezuela first, there would be established as a system of government based on the vertical and personality cult. But now it's too late. Chavez got drunk on power, won`t return to Venezuela alive and nobody knows what to do without him.

    De todos los dictadores y criminales, al menos Adolfo Hitler tuvo el arrojo de suicidarse y solicitar su cremación para evitar actos de sevicia contra su cadáver

    Frozen meat:

    From all dictators and criminals, at least Adolph Hilter had the guts to commit suicide, and request its cremation
