Jose Manuel Gonzalez is a Venezuelan successful business man, politician as well as agriculturalist. In 2010 Mr. Gonzalez was elected as the deputy president of the Guárico state national assembly. Additionally, served the National Federation of Ranchers of Venezuela (FEDANANGA) where he was the head. For two years he also acted as the president leading Federation of Chambers and Associations of Commerce and Production of Venezuela. This was from 2007 to 2009. At this federation he was responsible for all fourteen chambers. Currently, Gonzalez is vying for the governors’ position in Guárico state.
As the deputy of the national assembly, Jose Manuel Gonzalez participates actively in Venezuela’s politics and his efforts to better the state have been seen through his work. Being a pessimist, he feels that Venezuelan still stands a chance to change its economic state as a nation. He harshly condemns all leaders elected and do nothing to bring change to the deteriorating economy. Gonzalez believes that Venezuela is blessed with enough resources and positive efforts to tap them will lead to improved productivity as well as high living standards. This will not only bring wealth to the nation but also impact positively to the citizens. According to him, citizens should be cautious enough when electing leaders to avoid choosing those who will misrepresent them and do nothing in terms of empowerment.
How Gonzalez Views the Government
Gonzalez feels that the government should adjust some of its policies especially those in the agricultural sector. With this there are high chances of the nation fending itself. He suggests that agricultural products be competitively priced by the government since this will attract more people to farming activities. As people consider farming for full time employment there will be definite increase food productivity. In addition, he is hopeful about farmers stopping the smuggling business of their produce if the government implements favorable policies.
Gonzalez efforts to save his nation have been seen from the arguments he raises about the government. He goes ahead to criticize the government for importing fuel when there are enough reserves within the country. He suggests that the money used to import oil be used in fuel mining as well as government spending on Venezuela’s citizens.
