In a nutshell, the elections marked what was more or less the preservation of the status quo, and unfortunately, that status quo is now one in which Maduro can unilaterally impose whatever idiotic economic degrees he can dream up while Venezuela’s economy continues to crumble.
Yep. And it will be hard for me to work up much sympathy for the Venezuelan people as their travails grow ever more heartrending. They are getting the government they not only deserve, but actively lust after.
Good and hard.
