WHAT’S HAPPENING IN VENEZUELA? // long post, but worth the read.
So, it’s official.
The Constituent was approved. In the
past 18 years, aka since Hugo Chávez was elected President of Venezuela, the
government has altered election results to their benefit so it really isn’t strange
to us that they would do it this time. However, we didn’t think they would be
so shameless as to alter them this much. According to Tibisay Lucena (President
of the Electoral Power) there was a total of 8.089.320 votes in favor of this
Constituent, and these numbers simply don’t add. This past 16th of July a
referendum was held where voters would have to answer to 3 questions about
whether or not they agreed to move forward with the Constituent; the results?
6.492.381 votes made in Venezuela and 693.789 votes outside the country,
meaning a total of 7.186.170 against the
Constituent. While these two results add a total of 15.275.490
votes that fit under the 19.805.002 of venezuelans summoned to vote, here’s
number makes no sense:
8.191.132 votes in favor of Hugo Chávez (Presidential elections of 2012). - While these numbers were most certainly altered, it’s no lie that at the time Chávez had a huge group of supporters, called Chavistas.
7.505.338 votes in favor of Nicolás Maduro (Presidential elections of 2013). - These elections were made because of the recent death of Chávez, who knew he didn’t have much time left so he decided to brainwash all of his supporters to think Maduro was the best option for president. May I add, Nicolás Maduro doesn’t have any kind of educational degree, he literally was a bus driver before becoming president. Totally unqualified man. All his votes were bought or made up.
5.599.025 votes in favor of the PSUV (Parliamentary elections of 2015) - PSUV stands for Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela and would roughly translate to “United Socialist Party of Venezuela“, I think. These elections were a big deal to the oposition (represented by the MUD aka
“Democratic Unity Roundtable”), because we owned the National Assembly with 112 deputies (67%) and 7.707.422 votes (56,2% of the total votes)
I think I’ve made my point as to why yesterday’s result of 8.089.320 votes is nothing but blatant lies, except that’s not all! Turns out that, in these past days between the referendum (July 16) and yesterday (July 30), any person making a buy that required a fingerprint scan or using a “carnet de la patria” (an id recently made to “ease the access to social programs”) would count as a vote in favor of the Constituent. This government spends so much time looking for ways to stay in power because they know that the majority of the country is against them, and obviously they won’t acknowledge that they’re not as “loved” as they used to be, or else they wouldn’t ignore the protests that have been going on for the past 121 days with at least 128 confirmed deaths (17 of them happened only yesterday).
Now I’m going to explain why this Constituent being approved is literally confirming we’re living under a dictatorship.
Venezuela becomes a communal state.
Private enterprise will be eliminated.
All private sector employees become public employees.
The right to private education will be eliminated. From preschool to universitary sector, including adoctrinamiento político on all levels of education.
Means of social communication will be at the service of communist power.
University autonomy will be eliminated.
Municipalities will be eliminated.
The president of the republic is the only one able to choose governors and mayors, without taking into account the opinion of the people.
The presidential term will last between 20 and 30 years, with chance of indefinite reelection, applicable to the current president.
The movement of citizens inside of the country will be limited, meaning you’ll need an official permit to travel around Venezuela.
International departures will be limited, meaning you’ll need an official permit to get out of the country.
All powers, public and private, disappear.
The armed force disappears, becoming fighting bodies integrated into the government’s party.
All political parties will be eliminated.
The right to protest will be eliminated.
Opposing or thinking differently than the government will be a crime of betrayal to the motherland, meaning freedom of speech disappears.
Article 350 of the actual Constitution, that establishes you can disown the authority when the Constitution is violated, will be eliminated.
Authorities can break into your house without a warrant.
People’s houses can’t be sold or inherited, becoming propiety of the state.
Life guarantee will be restricted, the regime has now custody of people’s lives.
This is really serious, and I wish more people were talking about it because what I’m doing right now will be literally considered a crime as soon as the National Constituent Assembly enters in action. I know you guys may think that reblogging, retweeteting and regraming some posts is not gonna help us, but trust me, they will. The government is putting up an act of “everything’s fine, we’re the same 1st world country we were +20 years ago” and we’re not. We’re being killed, tortured, starved, lied to and so much more horrifying things are being done to and against us. Let the world know what’s really happening in Venezuela, and who’s the real villain in the story.
action movie about a guy who pretends to be a hitman and does the whole “25% up front and the rest when the job is done” thing but then just keeps the down payment, doesn’t kill anybody, and stops responding to the client’s calls, knowing that they can’t sue him for breach of contract without confessing to trying to hire a hitman. problem is now a lot of people who are comfortable with the concept of paying someone to kill someone else are mad at him
I am hoping we all realize we are one people under one sun. We are all on the Earth together. There’s no place else to go. Let’s all get along, let’s be nicer to each other, and let’s take care of the Earth.
Everyone should go see King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. It was fantastic! Just a fair warning, it’s an action fantasy, not historical, but boy was it epic. Guy Ritchie never disappoints. The cast was amazing, especially Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law, and the soundtrack was absolutely flawless. I went to see it in 3D and I had chills all over my body. If you’re a big fantasy fan like me, you should definitely go see it.
Okay. I think Disney is setting us up for something here.
Something no one is gonna see coming…
Okay. Disney is on their live action kick and that’s all good, and great, and wonderful.
But let’s look at some of the movies that have come or will be coming out in the future.
Beauty and the Beast (2017)
The Lion King (2019)
(tbh I don’t even wanna talk about the casting choices…)
The Little Mermaid (TBA)
Yes. I know that’s Anna Kendrick in an SNL skit. BUT back to the point
All of these movies have one thing in common that stands out in my head. The all provided iconic scenes that ultimately turned into trailers for this little guy
That’s right. Everyone’s favorite little, blue alien, Stitch.
I believe Disney’s ultimate goal is to actually make a live action Lilo and Stitch movie and all of these remakes are just so they can reintroduce it just how he was introduced the first time… through other movies’ trailers.
Come on, not even Disney can deny that a live adaptation of Lilo and Stitch would be fantastic.
So what do you think? Is Disney setting us ip for a Live Action Lilo and Stitch? or am I just reading way too into things and living on a pipe dream?
