Venezuela is a corrupt, socialist dictatorship with a rapidly collapsing
economy. And its on our doorstep.
What should we do? My opinion: nothing, yet. This mess is not of our
creation. Its not our fault. And if we intervened in any way, we would be
accused of Yankee imperialism. Latin America would rally to the anti-Trump
If youre just catching up on the news, this is what happened in Venezuela
over the weekend. President Maduro is watching a military parade. A drone
explodes nearby. Bodyguards cover him with blast blankets. The assembled
soldiers run for cover. Maduro says it was an assassination attempt. Hes
Any way you slice it, Maduro looks bad. His own people are coming after
him, and his own troops run.
His regime is collapsing. Theres no regular water supply. Power goes out
most of the time. Theres no food, or medicine, and crime is surging. The

Maybe Venezuela is best used as an example for our own socialists here in
America. Socialism is making great strides among young people. It could be
one of those teaching moments. After all, in our schools and colleges
socialism is often held up as something wonderful: the sight of
Venezuelans eating out of trash cans might open some eyes.
Lets be clear: Venezuela is done. It is not our fault. Not our
responsibility. But its a strong warning to the pie-in-the-sky socialist
Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.
Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.
ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.
Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
