Right. That stellar track record and pristine reputation that socialism definitely had before Venezuela.


Combine the right amount of socialism with the right amount of capitalism, and it'll work fine.

Thanks for proving my point. You are listening to the same war mongering media and politicians. The US doesn't intervene because people suffer. Socialism doesn't have a good name to tarnish. Socialism causes misery and starvation.

Why did the US intervene, pray tell?
If it's the media that's lying to me, but socialism is such a failure, then what is the truth supposed to be???

Having a few societal functions that are arguably socialist in nature (such as socialized healthcare) does not make a country socialist.

According to the American right it does.

Well, they're wrong about a whole bunch of stuff, that particular one included. As is Bernie when he says Denmark is an example of a successful socialist country.

McCabe and Bolton have made it pretty clear, oil. If the US wanted to intervene to help those suffering the most they would invade Saudi Arabia to stop their war in Yemen, but the US supports the war and arms the Saudis.
