Maduro Set For Victory Election

Gee, what a surprise:

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was seeking a six-year term on Sunday in an apparently poorly attended vote condemned by foes as the “coronation” of a dictator and likely to bring fresh foreign sanctions.

With the mainstream opposition boycotting the election, two of his most popular rivals barred from standing and state institutions in loyalists’ hands, the 55-year-old former bus driver is expected to win despite his unpopularity.

That could trigger oil sanctions from Washington, and more censure from the European Union and Latin America.

The self-described “son” of Hugo Chavez says he is battling an “imperialist” plot to crush socialism and take over the OPEC member’s oil wealth. But opponents say the leftist leader has destroyed Venezuela’s once-wealthy economy and ruthlessly crushed dissent.

Maduro’s main challenger is former state governor Henri Falcon, who predicts an upset due to widespread fury among Venezuela’s 30 million people at the economic meltdown.

Most analysts believe, however, that Falcon has only a slim chance given abstention, the vote-winning power of state handouts, and Maduro’s allies on the election board. Results are expected by late evening.

The Left Revealed: Democratic Socialism

The Political Spectrum was not designed to weigh political disagreements between the right and the left. Instead, it is meant to illustrate the progression of a political system from complete control over people, to having no power at all. The actual spectrum classifies the far left as totalitarian, being entirely controlled by one or a few. The far right is classified as being an ochlocracy or having no form of government.

The radical far left has historically been associated with communism, Nazism, fascism, dictators, and socialism. The radical far right has predominantly been associated with mob rule.

The left classifies Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini as far right dictators due to their disdain for Communism. As a result, they .” as anti-socialists. This could not be further from the truth. The mischaracterization is merely an attempt by the left to rewrite history.

CNN on Venezuela’s Oil Industry Collapse: No Mention of Socialism or Maduro

Wednesday, CNN presented yet another story about Venezuela’s implosion which did a fine job of portraying that country’s human misery, this time in the oil industry. Unfortunately, it was yet another example of a story failing to mention its socialist form of government or even its leader, President Nicolas Maduro.

High school passes rule that everyone makes cheerleading squad, or no one does

After seeing this picture. I’m supporting the ‘no one does’ option.

The controversy began with cheerleading tryouts at Hanover Park High School in East Hanover, New Jersey, in April, some cuts were made.

When a parent complained about their child not being allowed on the team, the athletic director changed the policy to allow anyone who wants to be on the team to join. The school administration said that the change came due to an irregularity in the selection process.

Hillary’s Blame Game Continues: I Lost Because Democrat Voters Are Socialists

Hillary Clinton’s Blame Tour continues with a new twist. Democrat voters are her newest Basket of Deplorables. You see, they failed to recognize that Hillary was a capitalist that would save them from themselves. 

Oh sorry … I should’ve given a keyboard alert on that one. OOPS.

Yes you read the above correctly. Just the other day while speaking at the Shared Value Leadership Summit, Hillary said OUT LOUD that too many of those darned DEMOCRAT voters are now identifying as Socialists and that’s why she lost!

Rich A-holes Sanders And Warren To Host Town Hall On Income Inequality

Would you let HIV-positive drug addict Charlie Sheen lecture you on substance abuse and safe sex? No, of course you wouldn’t. Nobody would, but three old rich-ass white people are going to shame everyone for the “unfairness” of a free market society. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Michael Moore will hold a town hall on income inequality and you can bet it won’t be about how wealthy and overprivileged they are. I’m also assuming the topics of bank fraud, cultural appropriation, and gluttony won’t come up.

NRA’s Wayne LaPierre: “European Socialists” Are Taking Over The Democratic Party

National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre hit it out of the park at CPAC today. He bluntly warned conservatives that European socialists are smearing gun rights advocates and are trying to strip us of our Second Amendment rights. Bingo. “Socialism is a movement that loves a smear. Racists, misogynists, sexists, xenophobe and more. These are the weapons and vitriol these character assassinations permanently hang on their targets because socialism feeds off manipulated victims,” LaPierre told the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Time to Rebrand the Democratic Party as Socialists

Liberalism is an idealistic political philosophy born after the defeat of Napoleon, a philosophy of freedom, which epitomized individual liberty, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and free elections.

Socialism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy and economic system that promotes egalitarianism — a theory of economic equality. Modern socialism originated in the eighteenth century as a working-class economic and political movement that opposed private property and criticized the effects of industrialization on society. It is usually defined as “common ownership of the means of production.”
