    I have a message to the opposition:

    Don’t forget about poor Venezuelans!

    The source of Maduro’s power is the political emancipation of the poor
    which occurred under Hugo Chávez. They will not be pushed around anymore.
    Fortunately for you, many of them have turned against the government due
    it’s failure (or unwillingness) to crack down on corruption and an
    horrifyingly increasing crime rate.

    If you recall Maduro and win the subsequent presidential election you must
    not make excessive cuts to social spending. That will really hurt
    Venezuela’s impoverished masses. When European leaders do that you get a
    student protest. When you do that in poor country like Venezuela you get a
    full-blown class war!
