You are the only person to condemn 2 whole continents based on your dislike of a couple of countries' politics. I'd say the financial crisis, brought about by the UK, US and Eurozone countries irresponsible behavior has had far greater worldwide effects than Hugo Chavez ever could yet I'd be surprised if any reasonable person would dismiss the whole of North America and Europe based on this basis. To do so would be stupid and, at best, disrespectful. At worst bigotry based on a stereotype.
I also thought that much of South America was experiencing something of an economic boom? Which complicates such a simplistic view.
