I remember Venezuela when it was one of the most prosperous countries in South America. It's demise began with Chavez (an avowed anti-American communist), and it has continued on the downward spiral common for communist nations. It is likely a matter of a few weeks before the cancer of communism is removed by force of a civil war there, with a multitude of lost lives.
That is always how it goes. Communism is brought in by the naive and the impressionable, as well as the lazy and the free-loaders of the world with their hate of those more clever and more hard-working than they are.
It is all very interesting, the actual value of mob-democracy when the masses can all decide unanimously to bring in the mechanism of their country's own demise. It is one thing to be invaded and subjugated by an outside and unwelcomed force. But quite another to do it to yourself. We may feel sorry for the victim that is thrown off a cliff by an assailant, but what can we say of someone that jumps off on their own volition.
Perhaps democracy is a bad idea if 51% of a nation can elect a path such as this. And if so, perhaps the 49% should simply say, "No" in a forceful and threatening way, regardless of the legalities of doing so. That would be preferable to the eventual fruit of communism. And, perhaps some people should not be allowed to vote.
Stupid Communist Americans...this is the fruit of communism, and this is the end result of its implementation. On a selfish note, the Venezuelan Civil War could not have come at a better time for Americans as 2020 nears.
