Cindy Sheehan & Chavez

Venezuela Dictator Vows To Bring Down U.S. Government

Venezuela government is sole owner of Citgo gasoline company

Venezuela Dictator Hugo Chavez has vowed to bring down the U.S. government.
Chavez, president of Venezuela, told a TV audience: "Enough of imperialist aggression;
we must tell the world: down with the U.S. empire. We have to bury imperialism this century."

The guest on his television program, beamed across Venezuela, was Cindy Sheehan,
the antiwar activist. Chavez recently had as his guest Harry Belafonte, who called
President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world."

Chavez is pushing a socialist revolution and has a close alliance with Cuban
dictator Fidel Castro.

Regardless of your feelings about the war in Iraq, the issue here is that we have
a socialist dictator vowing to bring down the government of the U.S. And he is
using our money to achieve his goal!

The Venezuela government, run by dictator Chavez, sole owner of Citgo gas co.
Sales of products at Citgo stations send money back to Chavez to help him in his vow
to bring down our government.

Take Action

Please decide that you will not be shopping at a Citgo station.

Why should U.S.
citizens who love freedom be financing a dictator who has vowed to take
down our government?

Very important. Please forward this to your friends
and family. Most of them don't know that Citgo is
owned by the Venezuela government.

There's a difference between saying you want the U.S. empire to fall, and you want to take down the U.S. government. Empire is about stretching your country's reach beyond your own borders (e.g. the British empire, and arguably our own actions in Iraq, Latin America, and elsewhere). It's a subtle distinction, but an important one. Also, despite Chavez's criticism of Bush's foreign policies, Venezuela is an ally and important trading partner of the USA.
