How not to understand the Venezuelan election

This article in Forbes by Doug Schoen about the Venezuelan election is quite bad. I will just copy the first paragraph and let you find the errors of fact:

There is a crucial election about to take place in Venezuela. Basic issues of freedom and economic liberty are at stake for the Venezuelan people. And with Venezuela being both our largest oil provider and a chief anti-American aggressor with alliances in Iran, Syria and Russia amongst others, this election is not only critical for us but much more so than policymakers in DC have acknowledged or realized.

If you need help, look here and here (for the latter, see how many times "Venezuela" appears).
