With Socialism Failing To Provide, Venezuelans Resort To Looting In Order To Survive

We all know how Venezuela’s 21st Century Socialism has devolved into a total nightmare. The drop in the price of oil has cost the country billions in projected revenue, which is needed to keep its various left wing policies afloat. Right now, there is a lack of access to television, long distance phone service, and even basic needs like toilet paper. The government owes hundreds of millions of dollars to companies who deal with telecommunications with foreign firms. To make matters worse, the country is experiencing rolling blackouts due to energy shortages. What’s the third wave of this misery brought on by leftist economic policy?

    Chavez controlled prices, showered Cuba with aid and borrowed billions from China
    The prognosis is probably terminal


    • Wynne just gave Ecuador 500K for earthquake relief. That is not a provincial responsibility.

      • Apart from the fact that Ecuador is Marxist and together with Bolivia forms the South American triangle of Venezuela’s “Bolivarian Revolution”. In addition, according to an article from Stratfor a couple years ago, Ecuador has had a heavy influx of Iranians resulting in radical Muslim influence after opening up to Iranian Government investment. Sharia law has been imposed on non-Muslim institutions in order to accommodate Muslims.

    Socialism works for people who don’t need to eat or wipe their ass.

    Socialism itself is based on looting. Looting the wealth and belongings of others is how socialism operates, and now it has been reduced to the individual level.

    • Sounds like the Wynne government.

        Doesn’t sound like the Wynne government, it “is” the Wynne government.

  • They’re at the tipping point — they can go one of two ways: Either the commies are booted out and Venezuela can rebuild, or Chavistas will go full on Castro-style Police State including absolute control of the economy.
