Venezuela’s Pathetic Decline Continues

It continues to get worse. Billions of barrels of oil and socialism has the entire nation (other than the politicians of course) mired in poverty.

The country’s socialist government has announced that Venezuelans will now be entirely without power for four hours a day.

But that’s not the worst of it: they will have to sit in the dark without beer:

If there's ever a spark for rebellion, that has to be it. Sadly, as most dictatorships do, the people don't have the arms to rise up with.

5. It's not socialism per se that's failing, it's Venezuela's incompetent government. In Scandinavia

and in other European countries democratic socialism has not only worked but provides a model that America would do well to follow.

8. EU socialism is paid for with a working capitalist base

The EU is more an elitist oligarchy than a socialist democracy.

The socialist based economy always fails, and the EU knows this...they will never embrace true socialism.

16. The term "democratic socialism" is nothing but a HORSE SHIT lipstick name on a pig

"But, but, but.... Scandinavia, Scandinavia, Scandinavia." That's more horse shit. You know what FUNDS those social programs in Scandinavia? CAPITALISM -and- SUBSIDIZING from the UNITED STATES.

Scandinavia has a friendly (less taxed and less restricted regulations), business climate than we do. Secondly, they have a hugely less population than we do. Thirdly, they have a better personal responsibility/work ethic than our ever expanding entitlement mentality part of our population does. And last but not least, America's military might and our relationship with Europe relieves countries like Scandinavia of a huge financial burden (defense spending), because anyone in the world knows that if anyone were to launch an attack on a European country like Scandinavia, we, the United States, would shove our boot up their ass.

You can call it whatever you want. Socialism = taking money from someone who worked or invested for it and just 'giving' it to someone who didn't do jack for it and is not entitled to it. IT......WILL.....NOT.......WORK. IT HAS NEVER WORKED.

2. It will collapse eventually

Chavez was too far left but he had some sense and the actual interest of the people in mind. He knew how to keep the country running and was willing to back track when he made mistakes. He had no clue how to build a solid movement or how to pick a successor. The government is now corrupt as all heck, totally incompetent and not willing to adapt or give up power. Collapse is going to be the only way out, if they are lucky the collapse of the economy and the government won't take the entire country with it.

3. Yet the dictator leaders, and those with guns they've paid to

protect them and keep the peons at bay, will continue to live in luxury. That's how socialism works. It's a great system for those with the power and the guns.

9. No Beer in Venezuela



If anything can start a revolution, this is it. No toilet paper? Corn cobs a-plenty. No food in the stores? Find other sources. But, no beer?

Beer Becomes the Latest Scarcity in a Venezuela Crippled by Shortages
Without access to the dollars needed to pay foreign suppliers, Empresas Polar closes its breweries

CARACAS, Venezuela—The largest private Venezuelan company and producer of 80% of the beer consumed here began to shut down its last beer plant on Friday, the latest deprivation in a country crippled by shortages.

12. How bad is it in Venezuela? Soldiers are stealing goats

It gets worse by the day. There has to be a revolution in the near future unless Cuba or some other country steps in to prop up the socialist dictatorship.

Over the weekend, six members of the Venezuelan military were detained by local authorities for stealing goats, the Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional reported Sunday. It said the soldiers confessed to stealing the goats and said they did it to feed themselves, since they had no food left in their barracks.

13. what did four visionaries have to say about Venezuela?

http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/sean-long/2014/02/20/four-outrageous-celebrity-supporters-venezuelan-socialism
1. Sean Penn on Maduro’s ‘Proven Leadership’
Penn, known for his Oscar-winning roles in “Mystic River” and “Milk,” declared after Chavez’s death that “Venezuela and its revolution will endure under the proven leadership of vice president Maduro,” according to The Guardian (UK). The actor extolled the late Chávez, releasing a statement saying “poor people around the world lost a champion.” Many Venezuelans has a far different opinion of the dictator, than Penn. After the strong man’s passing, the Miami Herald reported that throngs of Venezuelans who fled his regime danced and cheered, some declaring “Finally. We’re free,” or “We are celebrating freedom.”

2. Oliver Stone Accuses Protesters of ‘Desire to Kill’
Stone supported Chávez repeatedly. When the Venezuelan president died, Stone called him “a great hero to the majority of his people.” He also released a film in 2009, “South of the Border,” which praised Chávez, while media outlets including the Christian Science Monitor, New York Times and Huffington Post criticized his film’s pro-Chávez bias.

3. Michael Moore Praises Chávez’s ‘Free Health & Education’
Liberal propagandist Michael Moore is another Academy Award-winning director who has gushed over Chávez’s socialist policies. Moore, known for his left-wing issue films including “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11” joined the crowds of liberal admirers and praised Chavez’s economic policies following the Venezuelan president’s death, according to Hollywood Reporter. Moore tweeted “Hugo Chavez declared the oil belonged 2 the ppl. He used the oil $ 2 eliminate 75% of extreme poverty, provide free health & education 4 all.”

4. Danny Glover Calls Chávez ‘Social-Champion of Democracy’
Glover told MSNBC website, “the Grio,” that he joined “millions of freedom-loving people around the world” in celebrating Chávez and called him “a social-champion of democracy, material development, and spiritual well-being.”
