imageNot all imitation is created equal.  Of course socialists aren’t interested in equal opportunity as much as equal outcome, so maybe they can adjust this thing like Obama is trying to do in America.  Yes we can.

Meanwhile, the socialist/communist nutbar dictator way down south in Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, has explained to his people that Barack Obama is following his lead and taking America down the yummy Venezuelan-style socialist path.

“Bolivarian socialism” is the term Chavez uses to refer to his 21st century Latin American form of socialism, which he claims originates from the revolution launched by Simon Bolivar, a Venezuelan and Latin American revolutionary leader of the 19th century.

“We have assumed the commitment to direct the Bolivarian Revolution towards socialism and to contribute to the socialist path, with a new socialism; a socialism of the 21st century which is based in solidarity, in fraternity, in love, in justice, in liberty and in equality,” Chavez said in a speech in mid-2006, according to the Venezuelan government’s official Web site.  …
