More Evidence for Socialists to Ignore (Gunmen Attack Voters that Dare to Oppose their Dictator)
Countries, such as the Netherlands or Sweden, are favored by leftists when touting the supposed benefits of a democratic socialist system. In reality, these countries are actually capitalist markets with heavy emphases on social programs funded through heavy taxation, but thrive only because the means of production are not government-controlled.
In Venezuela, a truly socialist nation through and through, countless lives have been lost to out-of-control crime and starvation. Corruption runs rampant and dissenting voices are violently suppressed by Dictator Nicolás Maduro's administration, who has justified his reign since 2013 through the holding of supposedly "democratic" elections.
If one pulls back the curtain, it becomes clear that Venezuelan elections are anything but democratic.
On Sunday, a group of gunmen on motorcycles attacked Venezuelan voters at an opposing voting site, killing one and injuring four, Alix Hines reports.
Naturally, President/Dictator Maduro played dumb and publicly condemned the attack, but as he stands to benefit directly from a campaign of fear sown in the hearts of those who would dare oppose him, is anyone really buying his shtick?
When you hear someone praising socialism, they are praising violence as a means to an end.
When someone tells you they desire a socialist regime, they are telling you they approve of shooting you if it means they get their way.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
