T or F --- those who defend or promote Socialism have absolutely no clue as to what Socialism has done to once thriving country's economies?
How can anyone with 1/2 a brain look at Venezuela and state that Socialism is a good thing?

Communism and socialism are like religious cults. Their followers are not deterred by reality.

Because what is happening in Venezuela has nothing to do with socialism. Why dont you talk about the socialist countries like Canada, the UK, the rest of Europe? Why always that poor South American country that OUR government has been actively working to turn it into a shlthole so they can get the oil companies assets back? You troll.

The truly clueless are the ones who are brainwashed into believing that today's prosperity is anything less then a deficit funded illusion. However you define today's "free market capitalism" , it is dying from a self inflicted and fatal wound. The future is clear for N. America; either move toward some form of socialism where the pain and the profits are shared by all , or , surrender to fascism where the pain will be felt by the 99% and the profits will be lavished on a few.
"What matters is the debt-to-GDP level, which is not in the danger zone now but threatens to get there before long."
"The national debt just passed $22 trillion for the first time, after being just half that a decade ago."
"President Barack Obama’s administration racked up nearly as much debt in eight years than in the entire 232-year history of the country before he took office. ( following the most destructive Republican Administration in US History - 2 foreign wars 2 tax cuts and worldwide financial collapse ) He entered with $10.6 trillion in total debt and left with the country owing $19.9 trillion. That’s an average tab of $1.16 trillion a year." ( to save the world from another 1930's style DEPRESSION )
"Under President Donald Trump, the debt also has climbed. The $2.06 trillion increase works out to about $991 billion a year, or slightly less than the pace Obama had set."
"The future, though, is what has many economists concerned."
"The most recent projections from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office indicate that debt held by the public will rise to 93 percent of GDP in the next 10 years, or the highest since just after the end of World War II. From there, the level is expected to hit 150 percent by 2049, which is well above what economists consider a sustainable level."

T - but adherence to an ideology REQUIRES blindness to counterexamples. Ambivalence, even if a situation screams for it, is not acceptable for an ideologue; that is why such people can make wild claims in the face of clear evidence that the claims are false. Those who espouse this ideology or, actually, any ideology, have abandoned reason as a means of evaluating ideas and possibilities.

Liberals are an extremely retarded group of people. Just ignore them. Socialism will never happen in America.

They aren't looking at Venezuela. They are looking at the Scandinavian countries where the economies are stable and the people are happy with the healthcare they receive.

Underachievers are easily seduced by the promise of " Free Stuff " .
The reality and the ' fine print ' don't matter much when Leftists are intoxicated by their belief they will get something at someone else's expense .

But but but. It's democratic Socialism. Totally different. Which is what leftists say every time they want to implement it.
