Was I Wrong About Venezuela?


For the past fifteen years, Big Media has taught me to hate Venezuela, its socialist government, and Hugo Chavez. Now the facts are in and I may have been very, very wrong. Jimmy Carter says they have the best system of democratic elections in the world. Their economic indicators are strong with positive trade surpluses, lower unemployment than the U.S., a budget surplus equal to 2.9% of GDP (that would be a $500 billion surplus in the U.S.), and the lowest poverty in the region. Big media tells me the people are rebelling against this inefficient dictatorship but 85% of the people are opposed to the protests and 91% want to keep Venezuelan democracy the way it is. What is the truth? Who is causing the trouble in Venezuela? The truth will shock you. Look at the documents while you listen.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
