It seems that the Orwellian State state in Venezuela is taking a strong hold of all elected positions. This last weekend were the regional elections. The opposition somehow disilussioned with the previous recall referendum results opted to keep fighting the results rather than focussing on the coming regional elections. They even encouraged people to abstein from voting as a protest. As expected the absentism was high and the results were rigged. The Chavez's party, the MVR won 22 of the 20 gubernatorial elections. The opposition not even won the states in which they were popular. Big Brother has arrived to Venezuela and it seems that is going to stay in charge for a long time indeed.
