Oh boy! He sure did make that remark on the very last paragraph of this essay, www.sanders.senate.gov... Well, mistakes were made and he's only human. This was back in 2011 and I don't recall him bringing up Venezuela during the election and wanting to model America after it.

No need for the Hillary source, I don't care about her or what she says.

Thanks for source!

That's the Leftist model, it's why they always rail against the rich and successful, they don't want anyone to be wealthy.

The armed forces will decide the fate of Venezuela’s regime


BEFORE Nicolás Maduro, Venezuela’s president, delivered his second May Day address, spelling out plans for a new constitution, he paused to acknowledge some VIP guests. A dozen generals, in full ceremonial uniform, were in the audience. He asked them to stand and be applauded.

It was a telling moment. Mr Maduro is facing the biggest threat to his rule since he took office in 2013. Four-fifths of the “pueblo” he claims to represent want him to stand down. Street protests, provoked by shortages of food and the regime’s thuggery, erupt daily and are sometimes massive. The economy is in such an appalling state, and inflation is so high, that Venezuelans greeted a rise of 60% in the minimum wage on May 1st with shrugs of “so what?” A political shift to the centre-right in several of Venezuela’s neighbours makes Mr Maduro’s “Bolivarian” socialist regime look ever more isolated.

Why would the military defect to the side of lefty loony protesters? There's no reason for it.... It's just EU sponsored propaganda!

The generals won't defect, but once enough of the lower ranks do and the writing on the wall becomes clear, the top ranks will rather cravenly follow along, pretending that they secretly supported the opposition all along. Those that don't will find themselves standing next to Maduro at the inevitable show trials.

MSM do not like showcasing failed socialist experiments. If they did, it would make it harder for them to sell their leftist agenda in other countries.
