President until 2031

"I would call a national referendum to have the people decide if I can continue here indefinitely or if I have to go after six years," he said.
Those are the words of Venezuela's own Hugo Chavez who wants to change the constitution not only so he can run for re-election for a third term (should he win the 2nd term), but so he could continue unchallenged until 2031 - that's 25 years.

Before anyone says well if people vote him in......there is a difference between having to be elected for each term and knowing you are undisputed for 25 years. Personally, I think he saw that The Bearded Stooge has a net worth of $900 million dollars, is the seventh richest ruler in the world and got jealous.

I hope there are still people left in Venezuela who are in their right minds, and who will mobilize all the opposition and the independents to vote against such a measure if it ever comes to ballot. And I would hope that Jimmy Carter is nowhere near this.
