Journal Entry, Memories of Hugo Chavez: Good & Bad
Lower Class Citizen:
Today our leader has passed. Though some people are happy about this, mainly the middle and upper class, us lower class and poor people are deeply saddened. He was our hero, he gave us purpose. He focused on us less fortunate and created a welfare program for us. He took out oil revenues for us. He made us feel important unlike all other leaders. We will always cherish this man and what he did for us.
Upper Class Citizen:
We are finally free! Free of our country being drowned with bad decisions. Chavez took away oil revenues, he spent a whopping $30 billion a year just on social programs and he manipulated the poor into becoming his followers. He just wanted power. He not once helped this country. he put us in debt and only did the things he did to keep the poor in his favor to maintain his power. He had zero good intentions for our country. Finally, we can thrive and regain our wealth and well-being!
