Fruits of socialism.


I have been describing some of the plights of Venezuela in recent posts. The movement of Venezuela to socialism began less than 20 years ago with the rise of Hugo Chavez. He “promised” everything. Any of this sound familiar?

Now 30 million Venezuelans have descended into an apocalypse where food, medicine, water and electric power are critically scarce – this in a nation that was the richest Latin American nation just 35 years ago! Riots, looting, and general civil misconduct are widespread. Entire cities were blacked-out last week. Military troops had to be deployed. Despite holding the world’s largest oil reserves, Venezuela has had to appeal to its neighbors for humanitarian deliveries to prevent epidemics and hunger.

The term ‘socialist’ once was used as an epithet in American politics. Then along came the totally uninformed American voter. Who are they, ask you? They follow a donkey – a donkey that is about to kick America in the face – answer I.

We are witnessing a presidential primary year wherein Bernie Sanders unabashedly tells Americans that he is a ‘Democratic Socialist.’ He has won 18 Democrat state primaries. Even worse, a new survey finds that a healthy portion of Democratic primary voters are favorably inclined toward socialism. Nearly six-in-ten Democratic primary voters believe socialism has a ‘positive impact on society,’ according to polling conducted this month for the right-leaning issue advocacy group American Action Network (imagine what the numbers might have been if the polling group had been “left-leaning”).

Anyone who thinks that America can’t reach the same “tipping point” as Venezuela is a fool. People and nations are holding $19 trillion in US debt. Those people and nations actually think that is their money and not some bogus, counterfeit, spurious construct of the US Federal government and the Federal Reserve.

My dear Republican friends, please put aside your rightfully just animosities toward Trump, the “establishment,” or Cruz, as the case may be from your perspective, and support the final Republican candidate. We cannot allow the Democrat Party to hold the White House for another four years. We might just find out that our “tipping point” is less than 4 years away!

    Yesterday I was shopping in my local Trader Joe’s when an Indian man wearing a Bernis button sidled up to the employee at the food tasting counter to ask him if he had registered and would he like some forms. I took that opportunity to talk to him to ask him a few questions, specifically as related to socialism, our Constitution, Bernie and Venezuela. It turns out he is a “foreigner,” as he said and didn’t know much about our Constitution or our Bill of rights, although he wondered if it had “something to do with the 2nd Amendment which he remembers hearing something about.” I asked him why as a foreigner he would think about importing a foreign ideology and what about Bernie he liked, he said he has 2 sons and didn’t want to pay for their education. So I asked him if he would go back to the kid working at the food stand, look him in the eye and tell him that he didn’t want to pay for his kids education and wants the kid to do it for him. He said, no, it isn’t like that. I said it is and you are telling me that I should pay for your kids. How about I make a few demands on YOU for my kids. Anyway it went on and eventually he agreed that he knew little about our Founding Principles, socialism or much else and promised to read the Declaration and Constitution. When I described the truly revolutionary nature of the jewell our Founders left us he did seem interested and somewhat chastened.
