    Venezuela is Bennie Sanders and OAC Socialist heaven on earth. So why haven't either of them located there? or for that matter to any other Socialist country such as Cuba?

    No both are living the American dream created by freedom and Capitalism.

    I love the Barr cartoons. One has Trump dressed as Lucifer offering a contract in which Barr only needs to give up his honor and reputation to join the Trump team.

    He signs willingly.

    @ one old man:
    Venezuelan socialism wasn't true socialism.
    And Germany's National Socialism wasn't true socialism.
    And Mao's socialism wasn't true socialism.
    The Soviet Union wasn't true socialism.
    Neither was Cuba's or Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge.
    Certainly North Korea isn't true socialism.

    But if we just give Bernie a chance, maybe he is smarter than all prior socialist theorists.
    It could happen! 😃

    Democrats, it's time to stop using our legal system as a political weapon because you lost the election in 2016. We have an election in 18 months - use democracy -and vote who you want to be president.

    Remember RiDal (or perhaps you don't want to) that there is a HUGE difference between Socialism and Venezuelan Socialism. Down there, the place was hijacked by a Spanish equivalent of trump.

    Meanwhile, America is already a socialist country.

    Trouble is, it's Republican Socialism ( Socialize expense ; Privatize profits )

    What we need is Democratic Socialism ( Pool our vast resources ; benefit EVERYONE )

    Probably a good time to be reminded that, as recently as 2011, Sen. Bernie Sanders was stating that people had a better chance of achieving the American dream in Venezuela than in the USA.

    Now we see that the old saying is true: Socialism works until you run out of other people's money.
