Starving Venezuelans flee socialism on life rafts

Socialism is a curse that should be wished only on one’s most hated enemies.

Here is a New York Times story about hungry Venezuelans fleeing their socialist country by the droves.

Just a couple decades ago, Venezuela had the highest standard of living IN ALL OF LATIN AMERICA.

But just 17 years after the people voted in a socialist ruler (Hugo Chavez), Venezuelans survive by eating cats and dogs and diving in trash dumpsters. Government soldiers distribute all food and medicine.

In the aftermath, 150,000 people have fled the socialist hellhole.
