Fair enough, I do know he has supporters as well but in general he was not a good person at all. Most things that North America arent able to see is that he was a good president, but what most of us don't see is the reality and how bad Venezuela has become since he rose to power. I have really close connections from Venezuela and I have been there with one of my friends and from what I saw, experienced, from what I am told from people who live there is that at the beginning he made promises and kept a few but than he became a dictator focusing on warfare and not in the people and he was paying people to be elected over and over again.
The supporters are those who were being payed. I know it is hard sometimes to understand, but once you go there and experience what really is going on the truth is clear, Chavez was a corrupted selfish person who wanted profit at any cost.
