  • Venezuela explained by a Venezuelan

    This is an excellent article on what it is like to live under socialism. It's written by a Venezuelan in his early 30s who was 11 years old when Chavez took power in Venezuela so he's spent 2/3 of his life under socialism. He tells us what life is like and how Venezuela has changed under socialism. This is what anna, Rusha, Barby, Horn, quip, etc... want the US to become. This is what they want to shove down the throats of the American people, and what they advocate for here on a daily basis.

    I was barely eleven years old when Hugo Chávez began his first term in 1999. When this “Bolivarian Revolution” started to change the constitution and morph our laws I was just an introverted child that had just moved to the capital of the country, fascinated by video games, cartoons, and Power Rangers and with an overactive imagination.
    This perpetual revolution has laid down a status quo in the country that often forces you to lose your personal aspirations, to cast away your future, hopes, and dreams; it changes you in many ways until you’re no longer a citizen — you’re merely a survivor.
    Today, here I stand, more or less that same introverted kid — but with 20 years of ever-increasing hardships upon my shoulders; a lesser version of what I could’ve been, clinging to those memories where everything was simpler and all of it made sense.
    This is a personal account of what has my life become after twenty years of Bolivarian Revolution— 20 years that comprise two-thirds of my life.
