Fleeing the Venezuelan Hellhole

     Chavez and then Maduro after him took an oil-rich and relatively prosperous country and turned it into a hellhole with a little “21st-Century Socialism“. And yes, it was socialism.

     Unsurprisingly, people who can no longer cast an honest vote are instead voting with their feet: Over one million have fled to Columbia alone. People in important professions are fleeing because of bad conditions caused by socialism, which just adds to the downward spiral of the country, as does those who dare stay and protest getting assaulted by police.

     Even foreign investors are getting the hell out, while an increasing number of voices are calling for nationalist in the military to stage a coup to save Venezuela.

     So, about that hypothetical coup…

     The county is screwed in a way that only a socialist could screw it.
