I’ll start off with these two quotes:
“A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.” (e.g. CONTROL) – Gerald Ford
“The problem with Socialism, is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” – Margaret Thatcher
In reference to the video above, for Venezuela:
Here it is from the actual book written by Karl Marx, himself, “Communist Manifesto” . IT states in the exact book, “…Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality…it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experiences…”
Continuing on with the 2nd video about Venezuela —
13:55 minute mark – on who to vote – “One’s no better than the other. At this point, we don’t even know who we’re going to vote for. Now, this country is practically destroyed… They’ve done nothing to make us vote for them. For my part, I would not vote.”
And that is saddening to hear from a citizen in Venezuela, that they lost all faith in their governmental official or people who want to run – that they do not bother to vote. However, let’s think critically about it… If you don’t vote – the people with the same ideology will continue to run or stay in power and your government will continue on as is and your country will remain the same.
15:00 minute mark – the irony of it all… Venezuelan gov’t says she tried to plot to kill the Venezuelan President… However, caught on camera that the gov’t supporters or officials tried to kill her…
23:48 minute mark – opposition parties staging demonstrations – Some individuals are arrested, put in prison or under house arrest because they are speaking out against the Venezuelan gov’t. Keep that in mind – that this is not new – it happens in every Socialistic or Communistic gov’t.
Now my question to everyone out there in the United States… are we going down the similar rabbit hole into Socialism –> Communism? Or are we already there and that it’s only going to get much worse? Please think about that.
I do not want our country to deteriorate.
And please try not to be one of the people who’ve I heard say, “Everyone else did it the wrong way.”
Okay, sure let’s try that approach shall we – go ask the people who left Vietnam, who was able to flee North Korea, who left Cuba, who left Venezuela, who left… I can go on and on. And ask them WHY did they leave if “Socialism” and “Communism” is “so good.”

Wonderful selection of quotes
Excellent point for “The land of the free and the home of the brave.”
Saved the 1st two videos to watch later. Plan on viewing some others.
