Interesting article.
A few more things shared by Brazil and Venezuela:
1 - huge oil reserves
2 - r-wing elite displeased with Gov spending their taxes on all those social programs to improve the lives of the poor.
3 - usa infiltrating and even financing protests
(as reported @ the Guardian by Mark Weisbrot: "$5m of the US Fed budget for funding opposition activities in Venezuela" -> http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/feb/18/venezuela-protests-us-support-regime-change-mistake )
4 - both countries also seem to have some of the most beautiful women on the planet, although, sadly, that is a group, this Gringa Brasileira does not belong to.
