Yes. Same story with Vietnam Communist Party and Soviet Union. Ask your parents or grandparents who live in under those socialist communist parties to confirm!
WHERE I FLED FROM, PEOPLE USED MONEY TO BUY POSITION IN GOVERMENT TO MAKE MORE MONEY, TO STAY FOR LIFE AND TO PASS IT DOWN TO THEIR FAMILIES.
WHERE I DREAMED TO BE, PATRIOTIC RICH PEOPLE RUN FOR OFFICE TO SERVE THEIR COUNTRY FOR FREE.
“Don’t listen to what the Communists say, but look at what they do.”
