Venezuela’s elections are to be held on April 22, 2018. The one country we know that does not have free and fair elections is the United States. We saw that in 2016, when the Republicans tossed the black vote in the contested states, the same as they did in 2004 and 2000. We know that every major American northern city, all run by the Democrats, have constant election fraud to make sure the pro-capitalism, pro-police state candidates are selected. San Francisco is no exception. See

The Democrats do not bother challenging the Republican racist election fraud because they are too busy doing the same and attacking the Russian bogeyman, and have plenty of Republican support in doing so, to frame all third party candidates they can, all to maximize the profits of the capitalist class. Democratic Pres. Clinton, in 1996, did not hesitate to interfere in Russian elections to install the American puppet, Boris Yeltsin. See

Venezuela made a serious effort to provide socialized medicine, paid for with its oil wealth. Missing from the long list of countries that now have socialized medicine is the United States. The honor roll is:
All of Europe, Israel, Rwanda, Cuba, Canada, Venezuela, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, China, Taiwan, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand.

You can do something about this by changing your voter registration to the only 2 parties that support the democratically elected government of Venezuela, socialized medicine, free education for all from pre-school through university and all other needs and interests of the workingclass, the 80% of Americans who sell our labor for less than $80,000 a year, Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party. In this year’s governor’s race in California, party status is determined by membership and votes, especially membership. The Secretary of State finally released its January 2, 2018, 154-day report of registration before the June 5, 2018 primary election. See

To stay on the ballot, both parties need your registration, so pick either Peace & Freedom Party or the Green Party and change your registration now. You can register online at https://covr.sos.ca.gov/?language=en-US
