Never underestimate the power of the private voting booth.

 

With Venezuala's current conditions in the news every day I suspect the American voter understands what Margaret Thatcher meant when she said, Socialism is great until you run out of other people's money.

 

The dimm candidates are touting, medicare for all , free college tuition, forgive all student debt, etc. etc. etc. and it goes on and on.  

 

None of them seem the least bit interested in addressing the asylum laws for the illegal immigration crisis at the border.  It has only been in the last 4 weeks they even seem to now think it is a crisis.  They have been telling the American people "Its a fake manufactured crisis".

 

The dimms have no credibility on this issue.  They are more interested in overloading our system in order to have it implode and collapse on itself while Trump is President.

 

Sorry we ain't buyin' stupid today...

 

That's too bad because Putin is having a big sale on Trump.  You know, they guy picking winners and losers in the economy with his Socialist style support of the industries he has destroyed but can't afford to let fail.  Hog and bean farmers.  Where we have more hogs and beans than we need for the next year without crops planted but Trump is giving state subsidies anyway. 

 

The regressives are pretty dumb to think that is not Venezuelan style, state sponsored Socialism.

It's alway's a hoot when one creates a false narrative and then argues against it....

Sorry but not one of the Democratic field of candidates has recommended anything like Socialism.   The other side of that are all the "Democratic Socialist" countries who are doing so much better than America is doing. 

 

No, it takes a moron who cannot read economic texts to go out and spend more money than we put away. And that moron is tiny hand Trump.  He is almost a mirror image of what went wrong in Venezuela.

Isn't hyper inflation what happens when the government spends money it does not have? Like that $ 1Trillion Trump deficit we are now sporting?

Here, I'll save you the trouble...

 

There are many countries around the world that claim to be socialists. Current states that follow the Marxist-Leninist principles include the Laos People’s Democratic Republic, the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Cuba, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. This number has dropped dramatically in recent years. Former countries under the Marxist-Leninist idea of socialism included Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Belarus, Benin, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Congo, Czechoslovakia, Ethiopia, East Germany, Hungary, North Korea, Mongolia, Mozambique, Poland, Romania, Somalia, Russia, Ukraine, North Vietnam, South Yemenand Yugoslavia.

 

Countries that have constitutional references to socialism and are thus considered to be Socialist states include: People’s Republic of Bangladesh, Co-operative Republic of Guyana, Republic of India, North Korea, Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, Portuguese Republic, Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, and the United Republic of Tanzania.

 

Countries that once referenced socialism in their constitutions but no longer do so include: Algeria, Burma, Cape Verde, Egypt, Grenada, Iraq, Libya, Madagascar, Seychelles, Sudan and Syria.

There are also multi-party states with governing Socialist parties. These states are: Angola, Bolivia, Congo, Ecuador, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guinea-Bissau, Greece, Mozambique, Nepal, Nicaragua, Tanzania, Uruguay and Venezuela.

 

There are territories that have claimed to be socialist but are not recognized as independent states. These include Freetown Christiania, Revel Zapatista Autonomous Municipalities, Democratic Federation of Northern Syria and Wa State.

What things cost with 10,000,000% inflation

Hyperinflation has seen prices for every day items soar in Venezuela and it is now predicted to get so bad people are choosing to abandon their own currency entirely. Interest rates in the crisis crippled country are projected to reach 10 million per cent this year and people are choosing to use black market US dollars to pay for essentials in desperate attempts to protect their life savings.

 

The South American country’s government has already taken drastic reform measures to resurrect its embattled economy, including a new currency that chopped five zeros off notes, changes to petrol prices and minimum-wage reform. But despite these efforts an increasing number of signs are appearing in shop windows across Venezuela’s capital Caracas displaying prices in American currency.

 

Groceries, clothes, hair cuts and petrol are going on sale in dollars instead of the currency of bolivares soberanos in the hope the economy will one day return to functioning levels. Twenty US dollar bills are seen at the cash drawer of a bakery shop in Caracas, Venezuela.

 

Today, one US dollar is worth 6,359 bolivares according to the Venezuela Central Bank. But with strict restrictions officially in place over where people can buy their dollars, most are pushed into using the black market, where exchange rates are higher. The government currently sells dollars for around 62 bolivares, while the black market rate is around 90. After the International Monetary Fund forecast a 10 million per cent inflation rate for 2019, many fear the situation will only get worse.

What a bastion of reality when politicians promise the citizens things they can't deliver after they run out of "Other Peoples Money"!

 

Show me a country where Socialism is working...
