Chavez died yesterday, and a lot of people have been asking me whats happening, what is in the future for us, and what was his legacy.

The country right now is in chaos, we are a very divided and full of hatred country, thats the biggest legacy he left us.

The answer to the other questions i dont have, the constitution says we should go to elections in 30 days but i dont see that happening. The best i can do to answer the questions, its to leave a couple of very interesting articles i found in english, and one essay written by a Venezuelan that reflects very good how im feeling right now.

You might also be interested in these charts. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2013/03/06/hugo-chavezs-legacy-in-six-charts/

This is the chart that I found most interesting. More people in Venezuela felt that they were denied an opportunity to get ahead based on their political beliefs than anywhere else in Latin America.

It's a shame Fidel will have no fellow dictators to visit him anymore.

But seriously, and to the basic core construct of such men. They build the world around them with the impunity of their wants and backing needs. All the charts, logistics, arguments, and banter can't minimalize the basic core of such a jackass. From the drug dealer on the street, to the proper right gent in parliament. And, to the purple waves of grain.

We ponder what is going on with "our" country, and quibble. Here's just another example of the reason. Goodbye and good riddance.

For all those believing in a slight nod to the masses. Caveat emptor.

All of the chaos in your country must be unnerving to say the least. Stay safe and be careful!
