I wonder how terrible Sweden must be doing

LOL at comparing Sweden to Venezuela. Sweden is a robust mixed economy while Venezuela has been marching toward a command economy, which is preferred by Comrade fan and Akkula.

Nothing they did helped. It's like a pick your own adventure for how to cause economic collapse.

Kept the military fed and paid though.  Kept them from having a coup so far...  But starting to see some cracks at the bottom....

In other news, women and children are being deported to Venezuela en masse. Because America needs safe borders and such. 👍

I think we should adopt the same plan Mexico did for these Venezuelan refugees.  We should build moving walkways from the Mexico Border to the Canadian Border!

The Euro socialist residents pay 50-60 percent in taxes. Tell the people in our country that pay no income tax that they have to shell out half their money to the government and watch the reaction. Also, if their government is as wasteful as ours half of that money goes down a rabbit hole. If that is anyone’s idea of Nirvana I suggest you move there.

Yeah it's not like the situation is more or less the exact opposite of this on multiple levels or anything

I agree, but whenever lefty posters point out that they want universal healthcare, the righties on this board immediately bring up Venezeula and The Soviet Union. You know places that are very comparable to The USA

What is the biggest objective difference would you say between Venezeula, the Soviets and the USA?

What is the difference that leads to wealth corruption and Stability?  Venezuela has plenty of natural resources and easily could be as wealthy as the United States just on their oil wealth alone.  They have more oil than Texas and about the same population.

I think saying it could be just as wealthy is a gross overstatement, but that's digressing. 

 

It pissed away it's oil boom money too quickly and lacks industry. It seems like you're trying lead me into saying private industry and capitalism are good. Which I will. I was born in a country that was a Soviet puppet state, and has seen a massive economic boom since ditching Communism in 89'. Capitalism and private industry are net positives. Those things exist in Finland and Canada though, despite all those nasty government programs.

 

People like Bernie Sanders want to turn this country into Sweden, not Venezuela. Now whether or not that's the better path forward is a perfectly fair debate, but when you bring up a horribly mismanaged and corrupt place like Venezuela as an attempt to invalidate every Economically Liberal policy proposal, you're being a partisan hack. It carries the same intellectual honesty as me bringing up Somalia when someone supports limited government

Sweden a place where everyone is the same color and background and yet their GDP is declining without the smoke screen of inflation.

If you happen to be one who loathes capitalism and believes the only reason corporations exist is to lie, cheat, steal, and enslave women and children, here’s a good site to find your utopia:

Libertards like yourself prefer totalitarianism.  You are all about do as I say, not as I do.

I despise them.

Who are the "socialists" in Europe?  I'd tell you to actually take a real look at European countries, but I think you believe propaganda over reality.

Jokes are supposed to be funny. I guess I can try at a pokebball style joke.

Engineers should start treating their clients the way accountants do. We charge them to look at our own work from 5 years ago and tell them where it is wrong!
