Socialism makes a rich country poor leading to the flight of Venezuelans
As Venezuela crumbles, its fleeing citizens are becoming Latin America’s new underclassBefore socialism, Venezuela was the wealthiest country in South America. Now what is left of it is a basket case. Some Democrats want to emulate the failures of Venezuela. Anyone who thinks socialism is the answer is ignorant of both history and economics. Why aren't sane Democrats pushing back against the insanity more aggressively and not just complaining about what a tough sell it is?
The United Nations projects 2 million Venezuelans will exit their nation this year — on top of an exodus of 1.8 million over the past two years. In a part of the world with massive gaps in protection for refugees, Venezuelans fleeing starvation are often trading one harrowing plight for another.
