U.S. State Department "Congratulates" Venezuela On Term Limit Vote; Democracy Now Synonymous With Fascism and Totalitarianism

If this is Democracy then how bad is Socialism going to be?

From Breitbart:

The United States Tuesday welcomed Venezuela's "civic" referendum lifting term limits for the president and all politicians, but urged support for democracy and tolerance in the country.

"We congratulate the civic and participatory spirit of the millions of Venezuelans who exercized their democratic right to vote," State Department spokesman Noel Clay told AFP.

Venezuelans on Sunday voted 54 percent in favor of constitutional reform sought by President Hugo Chavez to run for unlimited reelection, in his bid to consolidate his brand of socialism critics compare to Cuba's communism.

Clay said that after the vote, "it is important that elected officials now focus on governing democratically and addressing the issues of concern to the Venezuelan people."

"We encourage all sectors of Venezuelan society to respect the diversity of use (of the vote) that is the strength of a pluralistic democracy," he added.

The US reaction to Venezuela's vote comes uncharacteristically before the complete tally has been announced. The country's electoral board has issued its first, 54-46 percent vote result with only 94 percent of precincts reporting.

US-Venezuelan relations have been steadily deteriorating since Chavez first took office in 1999. In September, they took a turn for the worse after Venezuela expelled the US ambassador and the United States responded in kind.

In related news, Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) is doing cartwheels. Rep. Serrano thinks Barack Obama will be such a great President, that we'll never need another one. Anyone tell Bill Clinton about this?

For other news on Totalitarianism, read the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment CRAPulus Spending Bill soon to be signed by President Obama.

An anonymous source with absolutely zero credibility from our New York Bureau conducted an exclusive, completely fictitious interview with President Obama.

Obama allegedly exclaimed, "Hooray for radical dictatorships in the Western Hemisphere! Totalitarianism loves company!"
