Can American Socialists learn from Venezuela?

Since it seems the dems are taking a big turn to the left with some openly endorsing socialism, Bloomberg wonders can American socialist learn?

" A recent series of Bloomberg articles vividly depicts the hellish, never-ending struggle for survival in Caracas, the country’s capital. Hungry children roam the streets, people are fleeing the country, health care is almost nonexistent, violence is endemic, even water is scarce. Chavez’s so-called Bolivarian revolution took a peaceful, middle-income country and transformed it into a nightmare that puts the ruinous Soviet Union of the 1980s to shame."

Bloomberg is a wing of the dems like most of the media…

If anything else had killed 100 million people in 50 years it would be outlawed for good reason…

Don’t you think there is a lesson to learn from them?

If Venezuela was a right wing disaster, it would be on the news nightly…

We don’t need to look at foreign countries to find one of those.

What Central/South American countries do you admire Cratic?

Am I required to like one? This is not about countries,it’s about why socialism failed again.

Also, why does it break down into dictatorship and even monarchy?

We have a good economy… What are you talking about?

So you admit there have always been regional issues? Not exactly the hotbed of world powers and prosperity, is it?

Yes. More corporate tax cuts and cut all aid to the poor.

Trump added $1.3trillion to the debt last year

Today it is good? I thought the feds were not supposed to raise rates on a falling economy? That was your story last week…

Oh wait, there you are complaining about the feds in a thread today… you seem confused.

Is that what they did in Venezuela?

There is little inflation… We still have near record emplacement.

Why are people starving in Venezuela, and why don’t socialists care ?

He’s not the reason for the deficits. We have record tax receipts. We all know the reason, but dems won’t admit what it is…

Don’t you want to learn about outcomes in different economic systems?

Or try to figure out why the socialist leader does not care his people are starving?

Venezuela is cool :venezuela:
