    Venezuela is basically communist after having Chavez, who died of cancer. His successor apparently is communist too. Socialism in its basic form is state ownership and or control of factors of production. Socialist practices in the US include the VA healthcare system and public school systems. I think the school systems are doing ok but the VA system is a waste of tax dollars. There is no incentive to excel in that fiasco.
    I know people in the U.S., Jeffrey, who are on the dole and are mostly contented. They constantly say, "Is that all?" but they're not so dissatisfied that they want to work.

    He is not even aware that some of, years ago on this forum and others...wrote about how Chavez was taking the family farms away from the families (because he portrayed them as elites) and gave the farms to the peasants, who knew nothing about how to run them properly...and hence, they were run completely into the ground, leading them into economic blight.

    And then we spoke about his control of the narrative with the media.

    Many of us said the sickness was going to get worse, and it did, and that has little to do with America, and looney left talking points supplied by people who have limited knowledge beyond those talking points.

    Between you, me and the fencepost...they best start coordinating the purchase of arms from external sources, so they can fight back.
    The Progressives have become full blown NAZIs, to thwart a Hitler that doesn't exist...since that is the only way they can express, and self justify, their fascism.

Trump's associates are involved and a person that stood to Trump's right at his presidential announcement was seated at a table while the people in the room were swearing allegiance to ISIS. So THAT'S who's running the streets in Indonesia. Trump is going to get word of this in a few days, if he hasn't already, so watch how he handles his separation from that guy...

    While every other Central and South American country has a hands-off policy, Cuba supports Maduro. It may just be a case of deciding how far the Trump administration will go on the Open Cuba strategy.

    Far too many people are simply to weak and hungry to demonstrate. But, when tens of thousands rise up, it will depend upon the military as to what happens. If there becomes an interim government and they plead for help, it will be vital as to which countries respond.

    I'm not sure if that's a self portrait, or what.. is is symbolic of the truth kicking his own butt?

    The currency is in shambles. Dependency is rampant. Enemies of America have infiltrated every institution. Corruption, lies, & immorality run freely in this land that was once a beacon of morality & freedom. The cry of innocent blood rises against us, & demands justice. We will have to face our Maker without excuse. We have loved pleasure & opulence, & have lost our place in the universe. Instead of the light of Liberty, we bring the stench of Death.

    Barack Obama was Hugo Chavez's bunk buddy and did all that he could to support Chavez/Maduro. Aren't you proud of what the Obama/Chavez/Maduro troika achieved for Venezuela?

    And while Sean Penn and Michael Moore get mentioned as supporters of the Venezuelan dictatorship the man Michael Moore hoped to be, Oliver Stone, rarely gets mentioned. I wonder why NBC isn't running "South of the Border", Oliver Stone's tribute to the man he and Sean Penn and Michael Moore and Barack Obama consider a great man.
