He was an extremist with good ideas. He just didn't know when to stop from going overboard, but his heart was in the right place. He stood up for the poor and stood up against the Satanic Bush Jr.
He shattered the perception from a certain group of people in our country that believe that the US President doesn't answer to anyone internationally. He stood up against the tyranny of the Iraq war and the bloodshed Bush brought to the world.
RIP Hugo Chavez. If there's a God, Hugo Chavez is with him. And there would then have to be a deep, dark, hot corner in Hell waiting for Bush on Judgment Day.
