I got this interesting email about Citgo:
Please read the following about Citgo and never buy gas their again.
I verified that Citgo is owned as follows:
“The company is owned by PDV America, Inc., an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Petrleos de Venezuela, S.A., the national oil company of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela”. This a direct quote from the Citgo website.
Venezuela Dictator Vows To Bring Down U.S. Government Venezuela government is sole owner of Citgo gasoline company Venezuela Dictator Hugo Chavez has vowed to bring down the U.S. government. Chavez, president of Venezuela, told a TV audience: “Enough of imperialist aggression; we must tell the world: down with the U.S. empire. We have to bury imperialism this century.”
The guest on his television program, beamed across Venezuela, was Cindy Sheehan, the antiwar activist. Chavez recently had as his guest Harry Belafonte, who called President Bush “the greatest terrorist in the world.”
Chavez is pushing a socialist revolution and has a close alliance with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Regardless of your feelings about the war in Iraq, the issue here is that we have a socialist dictator vowing to bring down the government of the U.S. And he is using our money to achieve his goal!
The Venezuela government, run by dictator Chavez, is the sole owner of Citgo gas company.
Sales of products at Citgo stations send money back to Chavez to help him in his vow to bring down our government.
Please decide that you will not be shopping at a Citgo station. Why should U.S. citizens who love freedom be inancing a dictator who has vowed to take down our government?
Thanks for caring enough to get involved.
