Hugo Chavez says he is a Social-Democrat

-What is the difference between you and Fidel? “

Chavez said:

– Fidel is a communist, I’m not. I’m a Social Democrat. Fidel’s Marxist-Leninist. I’m not. Fidel is an atheist. I’m not. One day we discussed God and Christ. I said to Castro: “I am a Christian. I believe in the Social Gospels of Christ.” He did not. Simply didn’t believe. More than once Castro said that Venezuela is not Cuba, that we are not in the sixties.

In original Spanish:

–¿Cuál es la diferencia entre usted y Fidel?”

Chávez dice:

–Fidel es comunista, yo no. Yo soy socialdemócrata. Fidel es marxista-leninista. Yo no. Fidel es ateo. Yo no. Un día discutimos sobre Dios y Cristo. Le dije a Castro: “Yo soy cristiano. Creo en los Evangelios Sociales de Cristo”. Él no. Simplemente no cree. Más de una vez Castro me ha dicho que Venezuela no es Cuba, que no estamos en los años sesenta.
