We should note the new counter offensive against Venezuela and attempts to restore US Hegemony in Latin America with the election of Mauricio Macri in Argentina and increased attempt at de-stabilisation of the Venezuelan State prior to and during Venezuelan elections of December 6th.

Macri certainly was the winner of the race for the presidency in Argentina. Cristina recognizes this; in so doing she demonstrated her honesty and democratic spirit. He won, but has yet to reveal what will be his economic policies. There will be only one dollar; we do not know for whom it will be. What it is now coming to Argentina is a great loss of its sovereignty and there is a plan of the international right-wing to go against the people who have made progress within the scope of the Bolivarian forces in Latin America,

Macri's victory means no encouragement to emerging policies in Latin America and the Caribbean. "What we're seeing with that victory of the right-wing and neo liberalism in elections in Argentina involves a realignment of political ideology from Mercosur and Unasur and that constitutes the policies that have been in joint cooperation - a political setback.” With the triumph of these neo liberal forces that hinder these base policies in Latin America..

What is observed is the loss of sovereignty for the Republic of Argentina because the advances that could have been made in the integration processes are lost and we could be in the presence of a new position or a new front of the right-wing”. What we see in these elections we express from the Bolivarian Venezuelan view through lines of sovereignty that we have raised in the construction of a new bloc  allowing people self-determination, to start building the new economies,

The new integration processes allowing cooperation and sovereignty to tackle global problems was a political earthquake. In this sense the people of America where great strategic wealth of the planet is accumulated can maintain and achieve their sovereignty and independence.

Machiavellian plan

There are hidden interests. We note that these stances of Macri’s of proposing the suspension of Venezuela from Mercosur are not accidental when international forces are beginning to introduce, previous to the electoral events, processes against human rights in Venezuela. This is part of the Machiavellian plan that is brewing against the peoples of America.

Macri covers up his ideological nutrient with frivolity and his colourful balloons. He makes puns and babbles about promises to support social policies instituted by socialism, very similar to those from Venezuela; he will seek to maintain them  without any creativity. The question arises - how he can defend them/

Macri, until today, hid everything, his hatred against Venezuela. He promises to apply the discredited Democratic Charter...already scolded for that first gaffe. To him, like many from here, the force that brought Chavismo throughout Latin America still hurts.

Even Bush himself suffered when he tried to impose the free trade agreement in Mar de Plata and received a lethal punch ten years ago. He was told to "take a hike"; a slap that is still marked in the face of the right-wing people; a symbol of sovereignty that Macri proposes to avenge.

It is hard for someone of the right-wing to live with the insignia of  the author of the emergence of this expansive wave of socialist governments in our continent: Kirchner, in Argentina; Luis Ignacio Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff, in Brazil; Rafael Correa, in Ecuador; Evo Morales, in Bolivia; José Pepe Mujica, in Uruguay; Daniel Ortega, in Nicaragua. In addition it gave fresh air to Pablo Iglesias in Spain and in Greece to Alexis Tsipras and many others who have benefitted from this global wave in the period.

That explains the itching that the Venezuelan left-wing causes to Macri, who hates us, as before Menem hated Cuba, and see the same right-wing and the same newspaper La Nación pushing a war against Venezuela.
