Hey Cayo,

Would love to hear your resoning of the rampant inflation and fingerprinting mentioned in this article. I've read your past diatribes on what a great country and leader Chavez was. Curious to hear your spin on this one. Communism always fails in the end.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. Winston Churchhill

I don't really have time for your BS right now is the short answer...Chavez hasn't been in charge for a few years...Maduro is not as adept at dealing with the incessant (US aided and abetted) undermining by the displaced oligarchs who are engaging in economic sabotage and creating a parallel universe of facts related to Venezuelan politics..not some liberal spin,but validated by Wiki leaks =the US government's own internal memoranda ..this is what happens when populists are legitimately elected,the other less accountable and now more potent form of power ,wealth/the wealthy, throw a hissy fit and instead of abiding the elected government,use their power to undermine it by a wide array of methods: bogus unconstitutional recalls ,capital flight,lockouts,using the private media they control to spread propaganda abroad( Cisneros),and many more dirty tactics...This is the reality of the cold war that we ignore..Venezuela took it to new levels,partly because if the heavy tar oil becomes profitable V Z is the new Saudi Arabia,....would not want a socialist in control of resources that might benefit ordinary people right?

Do you ever put any historical or socio-political context to any of these uber pro business rags you read? Are you really too dumb to differentiate between socialism and communism?
How come you are completely oblivious to the unquestioned success of Scandinavian social democracy?Because you are a right wing jackass .
