    Seen this one?



    Cindy &Chavez
    Venezuela Dictator Vows To Bring Down U.S. Government

    Venezuela government is sole owner of Citgo gasoline company

    Venezue la Dictator Hugo Chavez has vowed to bring down the U.S. government. Chavez, president of Venezuela, told a TV audience: "Enough of imperialist aggression; we must tell the world: down with the U.S. empire. We have to bury imperialism this century."

    The guest on his television program, beamed across Venezuela, was Cindy Sheehan, the antiwar activist. Chavez recently had as his guest Harry Belafonte, who called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world."

    Chavez is pushing a socialist revolution and has a close alliance with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

    Regardless of your feelings about the war in Iraq, the issue here is that we have a socialist dictator vowing to bring down the government of the U.S. And he is using our money to achieve his goal!

    The Venezuela government, run by dictator Chavez, is the sole owner of Citgo gas company Sales of products at Citgo stations send money back to Chavez to help him in his vow to bring down our government.

    Take Action

    Please decide that you will not be shopping at a Citgo station. Why should U.S. citizens who love freedom be financing a dictator who has vowed to take down our government?

    Very important. Please forward this to your friends and family. Most of them don't know that Citgo is owned by the Venezuela government.


    YOU CAN VERIFY THIS ON THE CITGO WEB PAGE.

    And if your local mom and pop owns the station which sells the gas, do you run them out of business?

    What about China products? Don't you support communism every time you buy one of their products.

    Tough choices.

    I agree, A lot of stuff that is really being said and taking place is not being covered by the rest of the media. Some because of their hate for Bush and some for the hate of this country. A lot of times I feel like the media maggots are just as much the enemy as some of the lunitics in power in a few of those countries. (Iran, Cuba, N. Korea, etc.):usflag:

    This is true thats why whenever we have the choice we buy American,unfortunately you can't find American made versions of everything. Oh yeah and all the citgos here are owned by middle-easterners and after being over in that part of the world I don't purchase anything from them. Accept for oil unfortunately because they own a good chunk of the worlds oil supply. have even thought about converting over to vegetable oil fuel,once we find a vehicle that has done this and see how it works.

    I know it is extremely hard not to buy anything that isn't made in China, but
    I am trying to avoid it if possible. Was not this way at first but I love and support our country first. I know it may have its faults but we are free, and that means free to choose our products as well.
