Since many of you are too scared or too ignorant to comment on whether what we are told by our media and our governments is true or not I thought I'd state my opinion and get some discussion going. I'd have chimed in earlier but you all probably know where I stand - anti-big media/govt - and so I waited for someone else to trip the wire. That ain't happening. So going down the list of topics in the poll I'll start at the top with whether I believe the Venezuela narrative, that Maduro is a socialist dictator and Juan Guaido is the legitimate president of Venezuela.
I think I had heard that the 2019 election which Maduro had won was deemed kosher by election observers. Using Google, however. it seems the answer varies depending on which media outlet I consulted. The usual gang of MSM don't like Maduro and say the election was rigged when he changed the voting days. Whatever, the military and the supreme court seem to like him enough. A leftie/conspiracy site I like came up with a surprisingly tepid endorsement for Maduro by saying this election was no more corrupt than an American election.
Nonetheless, I stand today with Maduro mostly because I'd rather a socialist revolution win the day than a Obama/Trump contrived corporatist coup taking over. Watch Max Blumenthal shoot that dumb position down.
