Dark_Falcon,

This makes me glad I don’t live in Venezuela, and it makes me feel sorry for the people who do.

I’m not a fan of Barack Obama economic policies

I want you to explain why and what exactly you have a problem with.

DF, that’s not socialism. Maduro is a dictator, not a socialist.

I wish you Republicans would get your ideologies correct.

This is a reminder how Maria Conchita Alonso became a republican conservative. An honest heartfelt conclusion based on her life experience. A position damaging to her career. Needlessly so.

Its socialism under a dictatorship. You can have the two in the same society at the same time. In fact its hard to imagine policies like this being popular for long in a country that respected things like freedom of speech or freedom of the press.

be glad that the US doesn’t have an economically-crazy person at its helm.

Are you sure about that? Semi/

Note: Not talking about Obama as I do not believe the President has that much control over the economy. But I sincerely doubt the sanity of the people who do make the important economic decisions in the banks, brokerages and boardrooms of America.

The powers that be in America are greedy and foolish, not insane IMO. What they do is perfectly rational, provided one accepts the premise that anything that is legal (according to laws they write) is OK in order to further enrich themselves.

Socialism is not an opposing value of dictatorship. Socialists can favor non-economic freedoms (Socialism’s relationship to economic freedoms is not a positive one IMO) or oppose them. It depends on the views and goals of the socialist in question. Maduro in Venezuela is trying to buy popularity and deflect blame long enough to win an election. He’s not thinking long term, because if he was he wouldn’t be doing something this certain to backfire.

To be honest, my real fear is that Maduro is going to eventually walk along the path trod by Idi Amin, Pol Pot, and Saddam Hussein and scream “This is all Columbia’s fault!!1”, then start a war to try to escape the consequences of his failures.

re: #11 Flounder

I wanna make sure its not standard right wing bullshit.
