As protests continue, this story highlights some of the human cost of socialism.  BUT, never forget, a majority of the Venezuelans brought this on themselves by buying into all the promises socialists made. Promises of an easier life and a guaranty that the government would take care of them.  They always promise this.  They never deliver.

  1. CNN shows the inhuman destruction directly caused by socialism in Venezuela, yet consistently promotes Socialist politicians here in the US. I don’t get it.

  2. I think the reaction to each failure is “It wasn’t real socialism” rather than admit the system’s inherent flaws. Was listening to Jonah Goldberg on a podcast recently talking about how socialist governments always bear a remarkable resemblance to “gangster government” or even the way prison gangs are organized.
