Defense of Gov't of Venezuela: Litmus Test for Pres Candidates
by Register Peace & Freedom or Green
Saturday Jan 26th, 2019 5:45 PM
Oil-rich Venezuela is now preparing to defend itself against an American imperialist coup, supported by the Democratic and Republican Parties together. One of these twin parties of war and fascism, the Democrats, now has a thundering herd announcing their candidacy for president, 2 years before the November 2020 election, obviously in an attempt to make sure Americans do not vote socialist (Peace & Freedom) or Green. The biggest star of them all is 77 year old Bernie Sanders, the Democrats’ sheepdog in 2016, who has no intention of actually being president. He has always supported US imperialism against Venezuela.
On February 27, 2018, Sanders joined with 10 Democrats in supporting a resolution condemning the democratically elected government of Nicholas Maduro. See

Here are the 11 sponsors:
Dick Durbin (D-IL), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Chris Coons (D-DE), Jack Reed (D-RI), Bill Nelson (D-FL), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Tim Kaine (D-VA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Previously, Sanders had condemned Maduro’s predecessor, Hugo Chavez, for being a “dead, communist dictator.” See

Venezuela Analysis has international statements in solidarity with its democratic government standing up to US imperialism. See https://venezuelanalysis.com/

All socialists support the democratically-elected government of Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela and condemn US imperialism in Venezuela and everywhere else. The same is true of the Green Party.
