Feel the Bern

Venezuela continues to provide its citizens the benefits of wise and compassionate socialism:

Venezuela's sky-high inflation soared to 24,571 percent in the past 12 months, lawmakers said Monday.

President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government controls most of the country's economy and is in the midst of an ever-deepening crisis with food and medicine in short supply.

On the bright side, fewer Venezuelans have to endure that hyper-inflation--because they are increasingly fleeing the collapsing economy.

About the only other insane "remedy" for this socialist disaster would be to drum up a foreign enemy in hopes that the remaining people will rally around the flag.

But it would have been "wrong" if America had actually supported a coup in 2002 to stop this madness in its tracks.

UPDATE: Democrats pulled left. Thanks Bernie!

UPDATE: And the water supply is kaput. Is air to breathe the next thing to go?

Socialism is all about making sure everyone equally lack the means to survive. Well, the rulers will be just fine, of course. They'll be wealthy and hydrated wherever they flee eventually.
