Political research concerns relations between two countries, this relations have radically altered in a span of several years due to change of political leaders. This difference between leaders and their aspirations caught interest of many researchers and academics, because the idea that USA had influence on changes in Venezuela has widespread all over the world. Political research intends to examine truthfulness of this argument using critical analysis. As a main indicator and creator of the change it explores life of one particular politician: Hugo Chávez. Research emphasizes on his political career, also underlines all the influences of USA on Venezuela and how the character of this influence has changed during these years.
Topic is discussed from the point of view of Social Constructivism, it is seen as a very complex set of attitudes and ideas based on but not limited to real facts. Political research focuses on all the factors that influenced Venezuelan politics, but adds some circumstances, including that the Anti-American sentiment is a phenomenon of a later period of time and that Venezuelan politicians worked very hard to make these factors important to its population, therefore created an environment for them to influence their politics.
