Sanctions are designed to incentivize the people to change their government.


Someone should sanction us then.

Everything indicate it's quite socialist.


On Friday, September 8, Maduro said during a mandatory televised address that his government would “achieve economic peace, prosperity, and price stability” by any means necessary.

“I want to do it nicely, but if I have to do it the bad way and become a dictator to guarantee [low] prices to the people, I will do it,” he added.

To the successor of the late socialist leader Hugo Chávez, that means more price controls. The recently elected Constituent Assembly, made up only of regime loyalists, has taken up vast powers, overruling the legitimate Parliament controlled by the oppositon.

It is now setting up an Economic Commission that will, along with the “productive and distribution sectors” and “the consumers,” determine mandatory prices for basic goods such as milk, chicken, pasta, and cooking oil.

The socialist regime’s stated goal is achieve economic prosperity “as natural as a creek, like a water flow that cleans itself. To rinse the waters of chaos and speculation by smugglers,” Maduro said. “Venezuela needs stability, a win-win situation.”

The Constituent Assembly’s new commission will, Maduro threatened, go after and “throw in jail” those merchants and store owners who allegedly mark-up prices “over 1,000 percent” just to get rich.

Maduro also announced that the Venezuelan state will begin issuing payments in a variety of international currencies in the wake of US sanctions against Venezuelan officials, bonds, and state-owned firms’ transactions. “I have decided to sell the oil, gas, and gold in rubles, rupies, yuans, and other currencies beyond the US dollar,” he said.

Venezuela is in a world of hurt and actions speak louder than words. It doesn't matter if they knowingly politically identify as a socialist country, they pretty much ARE one.

Rabbits are delicious! Especially the ones that are farmed domestically versus the wild version. I think raising rabbits would be a good idea, however when people are already starving, who is going to sit there and watch a male and female rabbit mate, have babies and all the while have to feed them? Then you have to watch and make sure the momma rabbit don't kill her babies. I had one that killed her whole litter.

The only problem I see with Maduro's plan is, "How are people going to afford to feed them?".



Uh, grass?


The people might be eating grass already.

You know most people don't learn those things in school right ?

Stay classy, Venezuela!

Of course, you'll have countless people saying that "real" socialism is just awesome and we should all be forced to do it.



Its so awesome that wherever people have had the chance to vote it in or out it always ends up getting dialed back. But hey why ruin a good bed time story?

You know it is!

Their hospital nursuries only have the best state-of-the-art cardboard nursery boxes for newborns! Only the best ... and bio-degradable too. I'm sure some people here who believe in MMGW will only view that as a plus and wonder why our hospitals haven't followed suit.

And you know there's a reason for that right?

How many kids would stand for the Pledge of Allegiance if they were taught the true price of our comfort?

At the top, it is... the only difference is that the "elite" are political instead of corporate. Call it corrupt crony Socialism as it always turns out to be.

Apparently, as youre a resident self proclaimed socialist yet you fought tooth and nail for hillary, obama, etc, and do to a fault for the interests of the democrat party, their paid riot squad groups, and everything in between. Yo.

But... still. To call FoxNews unbiased is kinda... foxy and I'm on a hunt of sorts. So here we are. Tea or coffee? The dogs might show up soon, though.

I wouldnt doubt it.

Stuff like that tends to go without saying.

Subconsciously theyd have us expect its about socialism when its more about psychopathic control freak megalomania, these things.

You are referring to the inherent problem with any type of government, whether it be socialism or capitalism or any other form. The problem is, and always has been, the human factor. No system can be 100% fool proof if there are corrupt individuals manipulating the systems to their advantage.

But overall, the two economic models, socialism and capitalism, are not comparable.

Except that capitalism isn't a form of government. It is economic only.

The US is not a capitalist government. It is a constitutional republic.

I am a socialist and I did not fight tooth and nail for Hillary. Hell, I didn't even vote for her.

You're not making much sense.

Can you elaborate without the false accusations and incoherent gibberish?

Socialism is not a form of government either. It's an economic model, as I stated.

Isn't NK considered socialist, yet they call themselves a republic?
