If Trump goes down this will be coming to a once law abiding producing nation.
Price controls are starving the citizens who voted in the collectivists years ago. Sell below cost and the product is no longer available. Nationalize all properties and businesses and with in 2 decades no businesses . Now people slowly starve to death.

    The only bright side is they won't have to create fuel from pig shit and you won't be seeing Tin Turner any time soon...

    That's the New World Order's plan all along, Agenda 21, (now agenda 2030), Collective salvation, social justice...all geared to put us all back in chains!
    Do you think the UN headquarters being designed as a fallen ziggurat and the reemergence of the arch of Baal a coincidence?

    Not to mention, sanctioning the practice of the culture and language of immigrants without the required assimilation into the American culture or any other countries culture and language...

    (instead of building up 3rd world countries they seek to tear down 1st world productive conscious countries)

    ...Are they not recreating Babylon?

    Hope your good at laying brick with no mortar!

    I seriously doubt Bolshevik Bernie is taking notes on the wonderful outcomes of Venezuelan socialistic experiment.
    If you get to be the top hog among the more than equal Animal Farm pigs, to hell with all the starving citizens.
    To hell with everyone if you can live like Kim Jong-un.

    Has your stomach turned yet? It hasn't? Good! That means you don't have to go to a reeducation camp.
    Everyone knows that nothing is too good for the living god you'd take a bullet for without hesitation.

      I'd find the money to send bernnie to Venezuela for a few months...as a peasant with no money to personally witness the joys of un-demoncrapic socialism.

        I like that idea but Madura would use him as a useful idiot till his stupid donor base depleted.
        From what I have read Sanders never had a job before being elected in his middle age to be mayor of some New Hampshire town.
        How do they do it. Never produce in a job or service and survive? I don't think he had a big inheritance.

    And this is what Obama wanted for the US! This is all part of what the UN calls for when they want to limit what we eat, and demand that if only come from local areas, great if you are not below zero!
    UN Agenda 21, move everyone into urban high rises, take away cars, refrigeration, and no way to grow your own food, nor go anywhere to find it. They want to get rid of thinkers.

      The only disagreement from me is when you use the past tense "wanted" . Barry Soetoro he is still actively undermining the constitutional republic.
      The Bushes are right along side him promoting a UN NWO. Now they are fighting Liberty in the "Uncivil war".

        Hopefully, taking out part of the FBI operatives will at least slow down Obama's current goals. You are so right about the Bush crime family. HW Bush and Clinton did all those TV ads after a past natural disaster, calling for donations. I heard rumors some of that set them up in quite a lucrative, albeit illegal venture together. Hillary must have learned from them when she scammed Hati and misused their aid money. Of course, Obama started early, directing funds earmarked for a park for children in a poor black neighborhood in Chicago, when he was a legislator there. The money ended up in his campaign for Congress.The least he could do is use his il-lgotten gains and build that park now. I get livid when I see the Bush family trashing Trump, it brings up assassinations in my mind, and what they knew and did. All these politicians and all the suicides and dead bodies.

            Let us not forget the Navy Seal who died on an airstrip in Iran, in the US plane carrying Hillary, when she got her brain trauma. The Seal was sent back to his home base, and reported dead from "suicide". Nope, jut too aware that Hillary was not at home falling, as reported. Even though some foreign press picked it up, not one US did. Was she taking cash to Iran in addition to what Obama had previously flown over?

              Thanks Stormi,
              Have to research that one. Add it to the extensive list.

                About the same incident, there were also some Wikieaks e-mails between generals who had been left out of the loop on the operation. They were not sounding too happy they had not been told what was going on, esp. since the US plane was still sitting in Iran, damaged. Of course, "Lying Hillary" came up with the story about falling at home from the flu, but Obama had Kerry in the wings set to replace her, asO thought she was going to die from the brain damage.

    Venezuela is a real-time example of socialism carried to the extreme--a case book study. I'd be interested in how its being handled as a "teaching momenta" in our schools, if at all. Its interesting to watch how its unfolding. Glad I'm not there.

      First, they will DEFEND it. Because it must be good, and you can't criticize it until it is operational.

      In the meantime, look at Norway... A tiny country that owns its oil and sells it to pay for the needs of its citizens.

        When Angela Merkel invited refugees to Germany in 2015, tearing up the rules obliging migrants to seek asylum in the first country they arrive in, the consequences were pretty immediate. Over 160,000 went to Sweden, leading to well-publicised disruption. Next door, things were different. Norway took in just 30,000; this year it has accepted just 2,000 so far. To Sylvi Listhaug, the country’s young immigration minister, this might still be a bit too much.

        ‘We have a big challenge now to integrate those with permission to stay in Norway to make sure they respect Norwegian values,’ she says. ‘Freedom to speak, to write, to believe or not to believe in a god, how to raise your children.’ Also, she says, what not to do. For example: ‘It is not allowed to beat your children in Norway.’

          I have been to Norway, and have some friends who gave me the inside scoop. After the first big batch caused a LOT of trouble, they noticed. And they started deporting the trouble makers, and noticed a huge drop in crime. Realizing that worked, they pushed to take far fewer, and focus on INTEGRATE or LEAVE policy.

          It's not perfect, but they will find their balance. He said his family and friends have stopped visiting Sweden. That's not good.

          Funny note, while in Norway I said "Oh, Swedish meatballs, they're my favorite!"... And they frowned at me. APPARENTLY I was looking at Norwegian Meatballs, which are CLEARLY BETTER (Like a University Rivalry). LMAO...

            Sylvi Listhaug the Norwegian official has not given in to the leftist dogma.
            It’s unusual for a European government minister to link immigration with child-beating, but the 39-year-old Ms Listhaug is accustomed to speaking plainly. The rest of Europe, she believes, is coming around to the Norwegian position.

            After decades in opposition, her Progress Party entered government four years ago, junior partner in a Conservative-run coalition. Her party envisaged the problems of mass migration in the 1980s, she says, so was well ahead of the populist upstarts now haunting so much of Europe. ‘A lot of them are socialist parties but against immigration. We are a libertarian party. We want less government, so people should decide more over their own life. And we want a stricter immigration policy because that’s important for Norway in the long run.’

    I don’t think AR REALLY ADDRESSED why there is such a movement to collectivism. I used to think that Venezuelans would rebel when they saw how socialism has failed. But they seem to be blind to the failure

      I have read and sensed a disdain among objectivist's to consider conspiracies. I even submitted a post asking about this .... with Zero replies. Ayn Rand died before the explosion of information thru the net. She might have been fooled by all the cover ups. My discovery of collusion and secret societies and all of the subversive destructive
      Government acts against All our liberty have the same connections.

        I havae recently read ALL of the "survivalist series" by someone called A. America. His premise is that the government got tired of potentially losing control and launched an EMP to clean up the populace and exert total control. Its a totally believable premise actually. I didnt really trust the government anyway. People in government are pretty much evil and power hungry.

        Government wants us all to be totally dependent on them, so we are under control and do what they want. If we think about it, they control food production, transportation, communication, medical care, housing and mortgages, and most business decisions of any import. Here in vegas, you cant even start a business without getting prior approval from the clark county- and they have a list of "acceptable" businesses that can be started. Not on the list? too bad.

        One of the reasons Trump is hated so much is that he is a loose cannon in a crooked system- thats why they are trying to impeach him. He is uncontrollable- has more money than he ever needs, has already proven himself and doesnt really need any more power, has some great children he can be proud of. How could such a person be controlled, and the sucker is PRESIDENT- OMG ! Even the media is against him for the most part (maybe FOX a bit less, but not much)

    On a Positive Note... We found the cure to the American Obesity Problem!!!

    Who says Socialism is bad? And ever since they got rid of the food... there are NO LINES waiting for it!

    Although I read somewhere that they have started Migrating out, and walking out of the country.

    AND THERE IT IS. The very SOCIALISTS who wanted this will demand that OTHER countries take these people in, so they vote socialist there, and destroy all countries.

    Where are all the Hollywood types BRAGGING on Venezuela? It's like they are RACIST on Socialism and only want to talk about WHITE Socialist Countries...

      The left's ability to create a problem and then make it worse is a very confusing dilemma for a reasonable mind. Solution : ignore facts ,get drunk ,don't use reason or logic ,act emotionally, take out personal frustration on Success. Get drunk again.
