Looks like failed government policies are in the forefront all the time.

Again we see massive problems in the South American nation of Venezuela.

Lots of food riots going on this week as well as continuing electrical blackouts.

People claim Venezuela is under a socialist regime.

Perhaps it is and that might show the true "Socialism" results.

Perhaps the European style Democrat Socialism is the answer?

But before you defend Democrat Socialism, take a look at (some of) the real problems facing European nations


Hungry Citizens of Socialist State Raid Stores for Bread


Bernie Sanders said that he liked bread lines.

When asked about the food shortages provoked by the Sandinistas’ voodoo economic policy, Sanders claimed that bread lines were a sign of a healthy economy, suggesting an equitable distribution of wealth: “It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.”

Sadly in Socialist Venezuela, the citizens don't seem to appreciate how good bread lines are. Not to mention fingerprint scanners for buying milk.

Venezuelan cities cleaned up from a night of looting and fiery protests Wednesday as government offices closed their doors for the rest of the week in the face of a worsening energy crisis that is causing daily blackouts.

The socialist administration began imposing a four-hour daily blackout around the country this week to save electricity. Then, Maduro announced that millions of officials will now work only Mondays and Tuesdays, taking the rest of the week off in a bid to save electricity.

Angry residents in darkened towns around the country took to the streets Tuesday night, setting up flaming barricades and raiding shops for bread and other scarce food.

“The crazy right wing doesn’t understand that in hard times, a family has to band together,” he said. “They’re trying to create a violent situation.”

Apparently two-thirds of Venezuelans are now crazy right-wingers.


Who's really crazy?

And all that has "guaranteed" and absolutely, i repeat, absolutely nothing to do with the influence of the US, of US based, international corporations, of agents and economical hitmen, sure...


The time that the whole world didn´t know about all this is over!
People now know who is good and who is evil in this world!
There is something in the air, an odor of a worldwide revolution, the people vs the "1%" !

This was merely a result of poor planning. The majority of Venezuela's budget and funding comes from energy exports. This is happening to a few places where the lazy officials refused to plan for a reality where their nations primary source of income becomes so devalued it cannot sustain its obligations. Saudi Arabia has at least always been smart enough to keep hefty cash and gold reserves.

Venezuela's leaders unfortunately spent too much time hyping the evils of America to their people as the source of their problems instead of doing their job and create a contingency plan for an eventuality that cripples the value of their primary export.

Do we have some CIA assets their stirring up trouble? Sure that is likely. But this failure is entirely on the shoulders of their leadership, and not the employees on the company payroll whispering insurrectionist ideas and pretending to be charities for the poor. At least those fronts make an effort to help when they hide their true intent. Their government pretty much has neglected their duties, and that cannot be blamed on us.

Venezuela is ruled by a corrupt leader and that's why they are failing, not because they are socialists.

Google 10 happiest places to live on Earth and you'll see what a proper socialist country can do, and America ain't on that top 10 list. So yes, Venezuela definitely needs to outst their corrupt regime and embrace the European model.

yea that is going to be a problem. Having no beer is worse than a prohibition on beer. They better start some bootlegging operations out there or things will get ugly quick.

I guess Venezuela will end up back in our asset column once the people tear apart their government due to the negligence that has led to this turmoil.
