As LDS we believe in support the law. The Venezuelan in Utah are wrong. They
don't know the real situation in Venezuela.
@Upson DownsIf you had been alive in 1773, would we have seen this
post from you?"These folks from England would be more effective
in reforming their country for the better if they would return to their homeland
and work at it from within. Standing around here in Boston shouting slogans,
boarding ships, and dumping cartons of tea into the bay does nothing to reshape
their homeland into the way they would like to see it administered."

@bandersonThe problem is, one way leaders in places like Iran and perhaps
Venezuela as well deal with opposition is to paint their opposition as allies of
America. Taking a strong allied stance connecting the US to the Venezuelan
political opposition might inadvertantly strengthen the entrenched powers in
that nation. That's not to say America shouldn't do anything or
shouldn't do more, nor do I claim to know the solution, I'm just
saying that diplomacy is complex, particularly when it comes to volatile
situations like Ukraine and Venezuela.
Countries like Venezuela do need us to help the opposition. Otherwise they will
remain under the thumb for decades. We have our own problems too with a
As I've watched the demonstrations in Ukraine,and seen their effectiveness
in toppling a disliked president. I have thought of the unthinkable chaos that
permeates the socialist republic of Venezuela. Caracas has perhaps the highest
murder rate in the world,extreme inflation and few civil rights. I have met
Venezuelans here in Utah and they have spoken of the horrors of their homeland.
I took a trip to Jacksonville Florida and found out that Cuba has been providing
medical staff inexchange for oil and qualified local nurses,doctors have fled to
Columbia and then to the US;many to Florida. We need a President who will speak
out against the tyranny of president day Venezuela.
Sorry but we've been critisized, demonized, and ostresized, for getting
involved in the affairs of other nations.venezuelans need to go back and
fix your country!!We have far too many poeople who come here from
socialist, communist, tyranical countries and bring their ideology with them and
try to change our laws or form of government to the same thing they came here
trying to get away from.Our own citizens do the exact same thing as
Californians and NY come to Utah and try to change our state to the same
disaster they fled or created in their former states.Any immigrants that
are that concerned for their country need to return and fight to fix it!!
Otherwise you're an in America and we phave roblems of our own that need
fixing such as "the largest debt by any nation in human history"
and a government that's corrupted and out of control.
Support Venezuelan to fight for their own freedom! Hope the final victory will
utimately come to their contry, ASAP!
Where can I go to help? We have leaders in our own country not only destroying
this country but sympathetic to the leaders in Venezuela! We have leaders in
our own land trying to destroy the very things that make what is happening in
Vevezuela almost impossible here! Barack Obama should be front and center
denouncing and pressuring those leaders to but their house in order. Ronald
Reagan would have let them know in no uncertain terms that we would not stand
idly by and watch this tyranny! America needs to fix its own house, including
removing from office politicians that could care less about the constitution,
and become the city on a hill again!
