About the Author
Cindy Sheehan has authored five book, Revolution, A Love Story is her latest. Cindy's oldest child, Casey, was killed in Iraq on April 04, 2004 in a war that neither she nor he supported. Cindy garnered international notoriety in the summer of 2005 when she camped out in front of the vacation home of then US president, George Bush, in Crawford, Tx. In Revolution, Cindy continues the class analysis and the connection of the so-called dots she began in a previous book: Myth America. Sheehan is mother to three surviving children and four grandbabies. She divides her time between writing, hosting her own radio show, The Soapbox, traveling to work for peace and justice, and playing with her grandchildren. Cindy is convinced true change does not exist in the current capitalist system.

I was fortunate enough to see at first hand recently another country in which its leader is putting people first: Brazil.y experiences there, as an ordinary tourist, convinced me that our State Department needs to extend the hand of friendship to our South American neighbors. No more should we support dictatorships, as we have in the past; instead we should do as Cindy Sheehan recommends: give peace a chance.
This work is an utter joke, which armchair socialists wax poetic while basically the latter portion of my family tries to find basic house hold items, votes are burned, murder rates increase, billions are given to Cuba, repression and governmental overreach and abuses occur daily.
This work is a pathetic regurgitation of the state's media funding this woman, and it's a shame Amazon even carries it.
Venezuela, with a population smaller than Canada's, suffers more homicides than the United States. Robberies at gunpoint -- "express kidnappings" as they are called -- are regular occurrences in middle-class neighborhoods. And if middle-class neighborhoods evince any disaffection from the regime, they lose what little police protection they have, or even discover the police suddenly abetting and aiding the criminals that prey upon their community.
Property is seized. Businesses are arbitrarily nationalized. Conversations are eavesdropped upon. The Internet is policed, at least to the best of the (very limited) ability of Venezuela's not very competent security forces.
Hugo Chavez has laid Venezuela's economy to waste. One of the world's great energy producers must turn its streetlamps off at night. One of the world's wealthiest exporters cannot afford to import enough food. One of the world's energy superpowers is seeing its production slowly dwindle away because of chronic under-investment in the oil fields and the loss of access to technology as foreign companies are harassed and expropriated.
