    Venezuela

    People call it socialism but it's communist or Marxist, total chaos. Socialism doesn't mean the same as it was before. This is what Sanders wanted for our country.

    I wonder, why doesn't the US stick its nose into SA affairs. It doesn't mind interfering with other countries.
    And Venezuela has oil? Bush would have been on that like flies on stink.

    Socialism - in whatever form - never works.

    It depends om the degree of it and on the type of government used to enforce the socialist policy. My wife and I know two couples from
    the UK and they seem to be contented. The UK is a form of democratic socialism where the people can vote their preference.

    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.

    Fabian said it's like the movie purge over there right now. A lot of wounded people and chaos in the streets.

    Nope, Sorry, you're way wrong on that. The country is coming apart, because like most people who get sick and tired of living under a military dictatorship installed by the US, they decided to get up and do something about it. 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...

    More revisionism by our Antifa stealth-member.

    Completely fact-free, of course. Does not discuss; cannot discuss. Incapable of it.

    He has his memes; his Narratives; his mission...and a big, fat mouth.
