Californians ready to flee socialism

In 1978, courageous Californians circulated and passed a forward-thinking ballot initiative known as Proposition 13. Under Proposition 13, the annual real estate tax on a parcel of property is limited to 1% of its assessed value. In the years that followed, real estate became something of a tax shelter even as the vampire-like California legislature …

More misery in socialist Venezuela

Socialist Venezuela continues spiraling into misery and environmental devastation. Just 20 years ago, Venezuelans were the richest and healthiest people in Latin America. Then they voted for socialism. Government took over businesses and industries, took over health care and food distribution, and chased out capitalists. Now Venezuelans struggle for survival daily. Photos show them butchering …

77 percent of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.

Whenever government expands, people become impoverished, dependent, sick, weak, diseased, trapped, and less mobile in every sense. CBS Moneywatch has released a report indicating that “[a]lmost 8 out of 10 American workers say they live paycheck to paycheck.” Government taxes, regulations and central banking savagely punish savers, so most Americans save little or nothing. Studies …

Collapsing Chicago Public Schools Seeking to Force Rural Illinois Property Owners to Pay $17 BILLION Debt

The Chicago Public School District is $17 BILLION in debt. (That figure is greater than the annual State budgets of numerous entire states combined; Chicago’s “teachers” often retire as multimillionaires in a state that has experienced years of declining household incomes.)

Socialism lowered life expectancy in Venezuela while capitalism raised life expectancy in Chile

Many government lovers condemn and criticize the rightist regime that took over Chile in the 1970s. Naomi Klein’s book “The Shock Doctrine” begins with a (mostly false) story that Chile’s Pinochet adopted free-market policies and followed the guidance of free-market economist Milton Friedman. But while Chile under Pinochet was hardly the free-market model its enemies …

Socialist Venezuela is a paradise for government: officials live like kings among the starving

Wherever socialism takes hold, society spirals downward into poverty, dependence, sickness and weakness while elitists in government prosper. In modern Venezuela, the people dive through trash for food, eat pigeons, cats and dogs for food, and die in knife fights on the streets over dollar bills. Meanwhile the elitists and government officials in the socialist …

Almost everything said by ‘mainstream’ news about melting in the Arctic is fake

Impoverished Venezuelans who protest their government are now subjected to secret midnight military trials

They had a thriving business and investment sector. Then the people voted for socialism. Now, after dozens of Venezuelans have died in the streets while protesting …

Venezuelans–formerly the wealthiest people in South America–are now too starving and poor to protest their socialist government

In just 20 years, socialism and government central planning raped and robbed the people of Venezuela of their rights, their wealth and their dignity. During the early 1990s, Venezuelans were the wealthiest people in South America. Their market economy thrived and exported oil and other goods throughout the world. Then the people voted for socialism …
