    I don't understand why Venezuelians are complaining. The state of their country and economy is exactly normal for a socialist state. If they want something different then they will have to choose a different system.

    100% this is what the majority wanted. Normally I would refrain from laughing about human suffering but in this case what the hell... bahhahhahhahhahhaaaa

    I'm talking about people who voted the party in.
    Members here talk about capitalism, socialism, communism etc etc. however in the real world all three are hard to say work in text book sense.

    Plus the party or president the the people voted in was running with the platform of doing the same for the last four or five elections (though the last president died)

    Political systems are based on ideology ... the reality is the masses get screwed ... while a select few profit from the corruption ... we have the same system in Australia ...

    The events in Venezuela is an example of a social experiment when the money system breaks down ... don't laugh at them because they aren't shifting to gold and silver ... they might be laughing at us because we may as well be stacking rocks ...

    True, but if the situation got as bad, you'd hope we would at least try out the other morons
