Birth and Before Presidency
Rise To Power
During Power and Fall
Venezuela, a place that drastically needs change and a new leader. After graduating from my academy of military sciences I decided to become part of our country's military. I got the job as an officer in an army paratrooper unit and stayed their for many years. However, it has become well known that in 1992 I had an idea. Now to me, this idea was a next step in Venezuelan history. This country needed a change and what I had in plan was going to change the lives of these people forever. During that time of 1992, I attempted to overthrow the government completely I only did this because I felt as if these people needed help. President Carlos Andres Perez was not the leader these people wanted. They needed a stronger and smarter leader such as myself. That is the reason why I have decided to step up and take over the government However, as it has become well known, my plan to take over has failed. I have been in jail for the past two whole years because of this. While being jailed up for two years, I have thought long and hard about something. This realization is that I am going to be taking on the political side rather than the military side of Venezuela. And to start off this new transformation, I am going to start my new revolutionary party, the Fifth Republic.
