[FONT=inherit]Venezuela is bracing for turbulence after the socialist government blocked a presidential recall referendum in a move opposition leaders are calling a coup.

Venezuela is experiencing major problems with citizens even committing cannibalism to survive. The present government has flaunted its excesses in the face of people that can not get food or toilet paper. I fear that even if the people manage to change their government what will occur is they will replace one set of leaders who will be just as bad as the ones they dump.

Turkey experienced an attempted coup and the leader has been murdering all perceived opposition and this may be the reality in Venezuela.

Hussein will send American troops down to protect his friend and stop what we’ll be told is an “illegal insurrection.”

Bank on it. He’s on the wrong side of EVERY issue.

Kind of a neat thing about socialism. You have to have a gun to remove someone from office (forcefully). I wonder if they took the guns away from the people first to “protect them”?

The opposition is urging supporters to take to the streets, beginning with a march on a major highway Saturday led by the wives of jailed activists, while a leading government figure is calling for the arrest of high-profile government critics.
Gee I’m sure that’s going to get them out of office.

Polls suggest socialist President Nicolas Maduro would lose a recall vote. But that became a moot issue on Thursday when elections officials issued an order suspending a recall signature drive a week before it was to start.
Funny that they want what’s BEST for the people & yet the people don’t want them. Dumb people, everybody knows that the government knows what’s best for everybody. (wink).

“What we saw yesterday was a coup,” said former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles, who had been the leading champion of the recall effort. "We’ll remain peaceful, but we will not be taken for fools. We must defend our country."
A lot less blood would have been spilled if you had stopped them from getting the power in the first place. (Vote Trump!).

**Venezuela is experiencing major problems with citizens even committing cannibalism to survive.
**That’s what happens when government runs businesses because they run them just the way they run government…Badly.

The present government has flaunted its excesses in the face of people that can not get food or toilet paper.
But it’s socialism, everybody should be out of food & toilet paper. Does that mean that socialism doesn’t stand for everyone being equal? Socialism trades one set of leaders, those that are trying to become rich. For another set of leaders, those that want power. The business leaders at least make money by selling food & toilet paper. Socialist leaders just take from the people.

They made a bad choice. What are the odds that the same people will then make a good choice?

Turkey experienced an attempted coup and the leader has been murdering all perceived opposition and this may be the reality in Venezuela.
Either way a lot of people may die. Maybe it will be a learning experience about socialism, but probably not.
