Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “A man who chooses between drinking a glass of milk and a glass of cyanide, does not ‘choose between two beverages;’ he chooses between life and death. A society that chooses between capitalism and socialism does not choose between two ‘social systems;’ it chooses between social cooperation and the disintegration of society. Socialism is not an ‘alternative’ to capitalism; it is an alternative to any system under which men can live as human beings!” ~ Ludwig Von Mises

Venezuela is waxing worse by the day, but our media is ignoring this disaster in our hemisphere, because this ongoing socialist tragedy represents an embarrassment to their liberal agenda.

The NYT, of all outlets, has had a series of vivid reports, describing the agonizing decomposition of Venezuela’s society and economy, and the inevitable human suffering that follows, as the nation increasingly succumbs to toxic effects of Nicolás Maduro’s liberal/socialist policies, fully implemented.

Of course, Times reporters cannot come out and actually say that the horrors they describe are the inevitable consequences of the self-same policies advocated by their own employer, now can they?

Absolute gun prohibition (leading to off-the-chart violent crime), price/rent controls, artificially high “minimum wages,” obscenely bloated government, brutal repression of dissent, unending government “stimulus,” (ie: desperately printing massive quantities of worthless script), etc, all the policies that unfailingly enjoy a liberal cheering-section here and other dwellings places of the naive, are the obvious cause of this catastrophe. That cheering-section in Venezuela has curiously disintegrated.

Imagine that!

Today’s calamity that is Venezuela follows Ayn Rand’s scenario so closely, her estate should sue them for copyright infringement!

Is any nation under the control of liberals/leftists immune?

Dream on!

“No country can sustain, in idleness, more than a small percentage of its numbers. The great majority must labor at something productive!” ~ Don R Ivey

Between Mullah Hussein al-Obamastan and the Hildebeeste, we are heading toward a Venezuelan disaster right here in the USSA! We have ONE CHANCE in November to rescue our republic. Let us not waste it.

The same thing happened in Russia 100 years ago, my dad’s family escaped before it spreads nationwide. We cannot let it happen here in USA.

Ever since the NYT got Mr. Joshua murdered by publishing his home address, I avoid that rag like the plague. Granted, the guy was no pillar of the community, but he didn;t deserve to be executed like he was. Nobody at the NYT was held accountable for it either.
