Connie Mack, a candidate for Florida’s U.S. Senate, just recently referred to his regime as, “the corrupt, terrorist supporting Chavez regime” (Gomez 1).

And does he really believe he is so dangerous in the eyes of the United States that he would be viewed as a candidate for extermination?

Unfortunately, the middle class has declined by as much as 25% since the mid-1980s and roughly one million people have slipped into the lower middle class or poverty (Venezuela Background). Under the stresses of economic decay, government corruption, and increasing poverty, the government structure has struggled through an increased number of political party groups, increased military involvement, and a high turnover rate of political leaders. The country's leadership has stemmed from Spanish descendants and those of the ruling class since Venezuela broke away from Spain and became an independent nation in 1830.
