When Bernie Sanders declared his candidacy, and known as himself an admitted socialist, I assumed to myself “oh my god, they want to convert The usa into Venezuela,” and then I keep in mind back again in 2013 when Venezuela fell apart immediately after so a lot of blunders by Hugo Chavez, their socialist President, turned quasi-dictator. Meanwhile, I found it attention-grabbing that Democrats in our region claimed Venezuela’s soften down did not have something to do with socialism, rather they claimed it had to do with weak leadership blunders built by the President there. Perfectly, certainly, but he did all the items socialist leaders do when they get into power.
Now then back again then in 2013 there was an attention-grabbing write-up in the Seattle paper on Thanksgiving Working day titled “Venezuela secures mortgage from Russia’s Gazprom,” apparently just one of all those reprints from the Connected Push, which stated “Venezuela’s point out-operate oil business has secured $one billion in financing from Russia’s Gazprom to assistance the oil-dependent overall economy improve sagging output,” and “an additional mortgage for $one.two billion from Spain’s Repsol need to be finalized up coming month. That would provide to almost $10 billion the amount PDVSA has elevated from its overseas oil companions this calendar year.”
What do I feel of all that? Perfectly, if you talk to me does it make sense to mortgage cash to Venezuela? I say no way, incredibly silly, unless the Russians want to capitalize and get around the platforms crafted by Conoco and other US oil companies that Venezuela stole and nationalized and then shed 35% productiveness at a time when oil costs dropped. It’s all about dirty worldwide politics, cash, socialist greed, and oil is just not it? I would not mortgage cash to Venezuela under any circumstances – nor Bolivia, nor Argentina, nor Ecuador for that issue.
These governments are acknowledged to cozy up to the relaxation of the environment and then get. Reminds me of what Hitler did when he purchased from the relaxation of the environment, then proven a paperwork to sting out the payments, then started off a war and everybody did not want to get associated for anxiety of dropping payment. Saddam did this far too. Bear in mind the French, Spanish and Russians did not want the US to go into Baghdad, as they had been dishonest the oil for foods software – the whole matter is rotten in Venezuela – undesirable shift by Gazprom, they will be sorry in the conclusion.
Quick Ahead to now, perfectly we see what transpired – now as we enter 2017, Venezuela has horrible murder premiums, food items strains that operate out of food items, hyper-inflation, wrecked overall economy, individuals starving, no citizen rights, forced labor – wow, it can be normally the similar story when socialism eventually has to spend the piper.
