This comes to no surprise to those involved in western hemispheric politics, as Maduro’s old boss and friend, the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, openly supported the FARC and had even harbored the terror group’s top leaders, who operated the group from within Venezuela’s borders.

Venezuela’s upcoming presidential election between Maduro and opposition leader Henrique Capriles has many Venezuelans worried that Maduro will “fix” the election in his favor. We can only hope that Venezuela’s elections will be conducted in a fair and organized way, as to  respect the rights of the Venezuelan people.
