Venezuela has another golden opportunity on Sunday to expose the maduro-cabellismo regime to Venezuela and the world.
It is a day to prove that the majority of Venezuelans want to change the present course of the country. It is a day to prove that they all want to live in a democratic country with a government that works for everybody, one that deals with the specific problems of the population, one that look for ways to relaunch the country.
The Government is clear that cannot win through votes, that its once majority became cosmic dust as a result of a chaotic performance all these years. The hope that chavismo once was for an important part of the Venezuelan people has proved to be a colossal fraud.
But the fraudsters want to continue doing what they know best and, to that end, they are intended to turn a minority into a majority. The mechanisms being used are clumsy, but there are those who easily fall into their traps.
In the absence of votes, the Government wants the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD) opposition coalition to receive the least possible. Thatís why it talks so much about the dialogue with the opposition claiming, among other things, that an agreement with the MUD is almost ready. It knows well that this topic causes great rejection among citizens supporting the opposition. It also knows that this agreement is, unfortunately, quite far away from becoming a reality and is playing with it to prevent more citizens from going out and casting their vote.
And of course there are all the manipulations from the four ladies heading the National Electoral Council (CNE) at its full service.
Thatís why in the very few hours that remain, the members of the MUD have to make all possible efforts to convince the most skeptical citizens of the need of a resounding defeat against this government.
It is vital to leave it exposed by proving that more than 8 million people did not vote to elect the members of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) on July 30.
It is of the utmost importance to prove the international community, who has kept a very close eye on Venezuela and has been actively exerting pressure on the Government, whose side the majority of Venezuelans are on.
Those of us who believe in democracy must make use of one of its main instruments for settling differences. The right to vote has to be exercised to defend it.
The differences or debts you may have with the MUD must be left for another time. Go out and vote this Sunday for a future in freedom.
