Sadness because in Venezuela some of my happiest, dearest moments (till I get to Australia and get my babies) were created and holds part of my most important treasure: my family.
Venezuela's upcoming country flag???
So, gathering first impressions related to this government victory over society’s needs the “welcome to the banana republic” popped and the unavoidable need to look the proper definition to it came to my mind. According to Wikipedia it definition is:
Ironically also points out a comment related to Australia saying:
“On 14 May 1986, the then Treasurer of Australia, Paul Keating, remarked during a radio interview with John Laws that Australia risked becoming a banana republic, referring to the size of the foreign debt relative to GDP.”
Being positive... I learned something about Australia. Being realistic, there is no better description for the upcoming years for Venezuela.

Well… it had been 2 months and a little bit more and the Venezuelan president wants to query the people if we want him to rule “forever” (or until the 2049… he says the Venezuelan people will have the opportunity to change him… but without him everything will be burned out!)
Anyway, the debates had been unbalanced (in favor to the government wishes) so here you will have some political propaganda, against the indefinite reelections...
Pro "NO" choise song.
Pro "NO" choice propaganda. Don't let another Venezuelan be in the dictator's hall of fame.
The propaganda says: "Nothing is more dangerous than letting a citizen for long time in the power… because the people gets used to obey and the citizen gets used to command… from which only tyranny and usurpation born… - It's up to you if you let another Venezuelan to be part of the dictator's hall of fame"
Pro "NO" choice. We are on time.. Vote NO!.
The propaganda says: "fifty years ago we thought it was the best for the country... every five years there is elections but nothing really changes... Our time just stopped; and the worst thing is, even if we want it to change, we can't. - In Venezuela there is time to avoid it... Vote NO!"
