The dread of democracy

In the last 20 years, Venezuela has held 25 elections between presidential, parliamentary, governor, municipal and referendums. On two occasions the results were adverse to Chavismo and he immediately accepted the electoral results, such as the consultation for the reform of the Constitution, during the government of Hugo Chávez, and the parliamentarians of 2015, in the first constitutional period of Nicolás Maduro.

The country is preparing for a new electoral contest as established in the Constitution. Opposition sectors that have put all their weapons on anti-politics followed foreign instructions to refrain from participating, while the United States intensifies the commercial and financial blockade measures.

In 2005, that same opposition decided to withdraw from the elections. He thought that without them the National Assembly would be delegitimized and would make a dent in the Chávez government. Time did not agree with him and they resumed the policy of participating in elections. In 2008, when they achieved victories in a couple of governorates and in the Mayor's Office, the elected mayor, when he knew that he had won, told the media: "It's good for so much election", and with the air of who believes handsome and supportive, he continued: "people are tired of elections."

They never accepted the sovereign's decisions, only when they favored them. Now they circumvent their existence thanks to the support of the US government and its satellites in the European Union and lackeys of the Lima Group, who want the parliamentary elections not to be held in December. The fear, more than the fear, of democracy is expressed in its anti-politics, promoting the assassination, the foreign invasion, the coup, the looting and theft of companies and national assets abroad, the suffering of the population with the blockade, while raising the "cause" of human rights with false reports, while the US prevents free trade to obtain food and medicine.

But they reached the paroxysm. They asked the International Criminal Court, on the part of the Colombian Foreign Minister, to reject the parliamentary elections in Venezuela, as if the election were a crime. However, those who commit the crime against humanity are those who want to prevent the sovereign from speaking out.
