As Venezuela Collapses, Maduro Jokes About the Misery His Socialist Government Has Caused

As every country that has tried it knows, not only is socialism immoral and inherently tyrannical, it does not work. Ask Venezuelans, half of whom are ready to abandon their own country. Under end stage socialism, food is scarce:

There are dire reports of people waiting in supermarket lines all day, only to discover that expected food deliveries never arrived and the shelves are empty.

There are horrific tales of desperate people slaughtering zoo animals to provide their only meal of the day. Even household pets are targeted as a much-needed source for food.

President Maduro is doubling down on the proven failed policies and philosophies of “Bolivarian Socialism,” while diverting attention away from the crisis — pointing fingers at so-called “enemies” of Venezuela such as the United States, Saudi Arabia and others.

A dozen eggs was last reported to cost $150, and the International Monetary Fund predicts that inflation in Venezuela will hit 720% this year.

A country rich in resources has become a starvation state. But at least socialist ruler Nicolas Maduro has kept his sense of humor:

To the outrage of many in Venezuela, embattled President Nicolas Maduro on Sunday jokes about the shortages and hardship under his administration.

“The Maduro diet. Makes you hard without needing any Viagra,” said Maduro Sunday, laughing, during an exchange with the audience.

Maduro had asked a man in the audience, “why are you so skinny?” To which several people in the audience responded, on live television: “That’s the Maduro diet!”

The “Maduro diet” is what Venezuelans call slow starvation due to economic dysfunction inflicted by the socialist government.

Likewise, Americans would be placed on the Bernie Sanders diet and the British on the Jeremy Corbyn diet if leftists had their way. As it is, we progress by increments toward Venezuela’s condition by allowing the government to grow ever larger.

    Good news though, childhood obesity has ended.

    Adult obesity too! Unless your a politician.

    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. Winston Churchill

    He wouldn’t be laughing so hard if his people were decently armed.

  6. KHarn says:

    Socialism doesn’t burn brighter when they “blow”, but rather when they SUCK.

  7. Dan Spinelli says:

    “President Maduro, the people have no bread.” “No bread, why do they not eat cake?” Let’s just hope that the people chop the rest of the “More equals” with the same fervor that the French did during the Revolution.

    Churchhill’s quote is excellent, but he got one thing wrong. The misery is never shared equally. As Maduro, the Chavez daughters, and their cronies illustrate. And this is one area I’ll give credit to Trump over Hillary. Trump has created wealth, even if he’s played the system along the way. Hillary is a giant bloated tick, a sick parasite just like the Chavez daughters.

    Sometimes, things are not as they first appear.

    America cannot be conquered by force from without or from within. When people cannot feed their children, the fight will be on, period.

  11. 762x51 says:

    Mostly because suicide and child mortality rates are on the rise there.

  12. 762x51 says:

    Coincidentally, “shovel ready jobs” are on the rise in Venezuela. Maybe Comrade Maduro, and perhaps Comrades Obama/Clinton/tRump. et al, should take note.

    Their BS is about to come to a screeching halt. People have all they can stand of it and when the pendulum swings the other direction it will be devastating.
