I received this e-mail and found that it is a fairly good comparison. The millions of people Mr. Carrillo talks about is a percentage of the US population. Obviously we do not have that number of inhabitants in Venezuela. We hardly reach 26 million. So when more than 2.5 million (just in Caracas) are openly and actively asking for a an immediate change in a peaceful manner, in the streets, every day... they should be heard and respected. Subject: Wake Up America American Friends: In proper proportions, what the Citizens of Venezuela are doing arise questions that I want to put forth to you: What would America do if your President Owned (yes owned, not influenced) Congress, the Supreme Court, the Attorney General, and all high officials? What would America do if President George Bush forced Secretary Colin Powell into early retirement, and with him, most 4, 3 and 2 Star Generals, and replaced them with One Star Generals and Colonels that he feels are true to him? What would America do if 22 million Americans demanded to have Free Elections to do away with a corrupt Government, which had decided to openly embrace communism, when you definitely had not voted to have your Democracy assassinated? What would America do if President George Bush decided that he didn't trust the Army to be unconditional to him, and thus decided to have Milosevic send him some of his Elite troops to protects him from the American Citizens and assure he stays in power? What would America do if President Bush decided to fire Vice President Dick Cheney, and put a Lieutenant friend from the Army in his place? and then fire the three Vice Presidents! What would America do if President Bush decided to fire all management and take over EXXON MOBIL., AMOCO, CONOCOPHILLIPS, SHELL America, CHEVRON, TEXACO, OCCIDENTAL PETROLEUM, SUNOCO, and all smaller oil companies? and when American citizens working in them went on Strike, President Bush decided to call the National Guard to attack these unarmed protesters, men and women, with Tear Gas and to hit them with Machetes? What would America do if President Bush asked Fidel Castro to invade the USA on his behalf, have mercenaries come ashore and put them in the officers home's in Annapolis, Tallahassee, the Georgia and South !Carolina coast , and have Mrs. Powell and the wives of other officers cook for them so that these mercenaries are not seen or detected by the way they speak? What would America do if 120 million Americans took to the streets in protest against a legally elected President who decided that he didn't like Democracy any more, and that Americans would now be ruled by Osama Bin Laden and friends? These incredible things are happening in Venezuela right now. The citizens of Venezuela will not give up. Are you going to continue to support "President" Chavez's Regime and have our blood in your conscience? Oil will not flow as long as this modern day Dictator is in Power. America: What are you going to do? Americans: Will you be at peace with yourself with the decision you have to make? Remember: Doing nothing is a Decision! You are a Society with principles and values. Show them to us, to you, and to the world. 30% of the US oil comes from Venezuela and Amoco is a venezuelan gas company. From december the 2nd Venezuela stops shipping any kind of fuel or oil and the only one they have left had gone to Cuba, not to Venezuela. The comunism is returning and is getting his financial resources from the venezuelan oil. The people in Venezuela know that and are fighting against it ¿Do you care about a secund and more powerfull comunist wave starting in South America? You can do something. Spread the message.
