The USA system is more correctly labelled 'oligarchical corporatism' and with some capitalism responsible for a percent of the GDP. We are highly socialized in that 1 out every 6 or 7 workers derive a paycheck from the fed and state governments, or from government contract....the highest ration on the planet. I consider these people socialists whether they admit it or not.
Social Security and Medicare are hardly welfare since most enrollees and their employers paid handsomely into these programs thru out their working careers. They were designed to assure that medical and banking/landlord sectors got paid by the aged who often died owing alot of cash.
Venezuela is oil and resource rich. They are in the deep state globalist crosshairs and subversion MSM target because they regulate their resources for Venezuelans first. This makes the globalists irrate and go on yet another rampage. Venezuela is not an abortion state. Its like the USA before WW2
Here's A very interesting post from an American who lived in Venezuela --->
Venezuela is more American than America , I'll give a list , I've lived there for many years!
This is part of the reason they want to end Venezuela as it is.
That's right foreign observers are not even the start of it, you can not vote if you are a not a citizen, in fact it's impossible, Unlike in the USA
You cannot get a job without being a citizen, that's right the jobs are only for their people. Not so in the USA
..no lawsuit culture. Not in the USA we love lawsuits that's why we are treated like little baby girls .
Drink and drive or speed at your own risk. Yes they don't preemptively give you tickets. You are responsible for yourself, if you run someone over while drunk you pay a heavy price. If your in a hurry you speed and use your horn and nobody gets offended. Traffic stopped? they think for them selves and make a line like army ants through the grass and keep moving.
Restaurants are not served by Sysco , you will often find waiters and waitresses from your favorite restaurants running a cart through the grocery store throwing everything from lettuce to fish into the cart . And then running the cart through the mall to get it to the chef in the restaurant. Not in the USA !
Things don't have to be labeled organic or non gmo, know why?? Cause everything is already organic and non gmo, thanks to Chavez. It in the USA you can assume quite the opposite.
Taxes are almost non existent, 3000 to 4000 sqft home property taxes are about 6 dollars a year! Not in the USA!
Gas is 1/10 of a penny for a gallon! That's right since it is their gas they get it **** near free. Not in the USA
You have a choice for healthcare, free or private pay. We used the free ones, we had a military hospital right around the corner to us, we brought our kids in a few times for stitches, they don't even ask your name, they tie the 4 year old down with a towel and stitch up the wounds and your out the door! Not in the USA
People say good morning and good afternoon religiously! Not in the USA!
You can tow a car down the highway with a motorcycle! Or drive a truck without and doors! Buying long rebar? won't fit in your car??just strap it to the axles and let it stick out five foot in front of your car and five foot behind while hanging underneath and sometimes scraping the ground. Not in the USA!
Electric bill for our house was never over 12 bucks a month! Not in the USA!
If a major company does not benefit the country, if they are not loyal they are shunned or kicked out. Their resources are for the benefit of the people period! Not in the USA
They have a more free form of capitalism without all the regulation! Not in the USA !
More then half the people carry around a copy of their constitution! Not in the USA !
The government is not controlled by a foreign gov. As the USA is told exactly what to do and how to act.
Venezuela does not kill their own with false flags!
Venezuela does not invade other countries to steal their resources!
Venezuela also has heavily armed local militias, they are there In case gov gets out of line!
I could keep going , this is what I can think of now.
