    There have been alot of socialist moves by Chavez... the Venezuelan government now owns alot of the major industries and has no problems seizing private firms and imposing price controls.

    Is it fully-fledged communism now?

    Nope. Ever since the US showed Chavez just who was in charge he's been restrained by the big people up North. He has done a fair bit of social reform, but nothing huge enough for Venezuela to be classified a communist state.

    Not really, for all the anti-US rhetoric he spews out, Venezuela biggest export market is the US, as well as importing the most from them.

    It's definitely on the right track.

    We'll have to see what happens if and when Chavez will have to give up presidency...

    I don't think any country can be called 'communist', I don't think this ever was the case...

    I'm sure it's now a more socialist country than say China though, which still gets referred to as communist.

    Chavez has won more elections in the last ten years than most other 'democratic' leaders.
