A lot of the young people love Bernie Sanders. They say he reminds them of Larry David – the creator of Seinfeld. I say to these young people; God gave you a brain to discern smart from stupid. Your choice of Bernie Sanders as a future president of the U.S. is STUPID. Hopefully, someone who cares about you will print out this article for you to read.
I’m sorry if my words hurt anyone’s feelings. But emotion and feelings do not help a person to think clearly. Studying history and observing governments and economies will help a person to decide which type of government is beneficial and which kind utterly destroys economies.
I can picture a rally for Bernie Sanders ending with a crowd of adoring fans; arms locked together singing Kumbaya as they sway side to side. Undoubtedly, they would leave out “My Lord” because most of Bernie’s fans are atheists.
If you are a student of history, you remember Venezuela as the most prosperous country in Latin America. And if you keep up with “real” news as opposed to fake news, you will remember what Hugo Chavez did to Venezuela and how his successor, Nicolas Maduro has taken the ruins to a whole new level in that country.
People are eating out of garbage cans.
Here is an excerpt from a great article on investmentwatchblog.com:
“Well for once I agree with this evil socialist dictator. America’s inner cities- run 100% by Democrats- are rotting cesspools of misery. They are third world hellholes. Just look at New York, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Francisco- to name a few. All run by Democrats for half a century or more. They aren’t quite Venezuela- yet. But they are very bad and headed toward Venezuela.”
I Agree with This Evil Socialist Dictator
Hugo Chavez was one of the most evil socialist dictators ever. He took the richest country in Latin America- Venezuela- and turned it into a disaster of misery and poverty in only five years. How bad? The people had no food or toilet paper. And critics of Chavez were tortured and murdered. Isn’t socialism wonderful?
But worse. Just like Fidel Castro, Chavez got filthy rich based on the misery of his own people. His family made billions.
Then this evil dictator died of cancer. He turned the country over to his hand-picked successor- Nicolas Maduro. Maduro ran the country the exact same way. Things got much worse. The people eat from garbage dumps and are forced to drink sewage water. In an oil rich country, there is no gas for cars.
I am the ultimate passionate evangelist for capitalism. I preach the horrors of socialism and the greatness of capitalism 24/7 on my national TV and radio shows. I despise socialism. I believe Chavez and Maduro are pure evil.
That’s why it’s so strange to hear that- for once- I agree with something an evil socialist dictator said. Days ago, Venezuela’s evil dictator Maduro told NBC’s Jorge Ramos in an interview that America has no right to criticize. He cited the poverty, misery and homelessness of American cities like New York. He said, “New Yorkers have to eat garbage too.”
Well for once I agree with this evil socialist dictator. America’s inner cities- run 100% by Democrats- are rotting cesspools of misery. They are third world hellholes. Just look at New York, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Francisco- to name a few. All run by Democrats for half a century or more. They aren’t quite Venezuela- yet. But they are very bad and headed toward Venezuela.
What Maduro missed was that the reason those cities resemble Venezuela is because the policies in place are socialist- just like Venezuela. Just slightly milder. And the leaders of those cities are socialist, posing as “Democrats.” In Chicago they just elected a bunch of councilmembers who proudly call themselves “socialist.” New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio is certainly a card-carrying socialist. (emphasis added)
And all of these inner-city Democrats are corrupt just like Maduro. They all appoint cronies and family members to major government positions, or award them multi-million-dollar government contracts. DeBlasio’s wife can’t show where $850 million of federal taxpayer money went. That’s Maduro-level corruption and theft.
Thank goodness many Americans are waking up. That could be why in the latest poll of Iowa’s Democrat voters, DeBlasio got 0 votes. Not 0%. Nine Democrats got 0% in the poll. But DeBlasio actually didn’t get one vote.
My first point is…
This is the state of today’s Democrat Party. Democrats are openly socialist and if elected, they will turn us into corrupt, starving and bankrupt Venezuela.
My second point is…
Be very careful. Nevada is headed in the exact same direction under 100% Democrat leadership. They will ruin this state in five short years- just like Chavez ruined Venezuela.
Wait for my Sunday column. I just got back from New York. I’m a witness to what a cesspool of misery, poverty and homelessness New York City has become. source
So, what is the takeaway from this article? It’s really not rocket science:
Socialism = Rich rulers and hungry and homeless people
Capitalism= Booming economy, people working and eating in their kitchens
Also, I should add that Socialism almost always morphs into Communism. And Communist governments do not allow people to worship God. They want the people to see the “State” as God.
I would not do well in a Communist country. I would probably be in jail even more than I am on Facebook!
