Whenever I ask for examples of Obama's socialism, the mask has no answer.

As far as Venezuela is concerned, they are a poor country in spite of their oil and they don't manufacture toilet paper. How poor? According to CNN, "Economists say Venezuela's shortages stem from price controls meant to make basic goods available to the poorest parts of society and the government's controls on foreign currency."

I've askim him, and his other account MrXXX many times in almost every post, what socialist policies has Obama implemented. All I hear are crickets. It's very easy to accuse, hard to back up accusations

I think City-Data-ers need to go back to high school.


Learn the difference between socialism, communism, and command economies vs. market economies.


Then come back.

Also remember that Chavez wasn't reinvesting in oil production....just taking the profits to prop up his popularity at home and abroad. Since grabbing all foreign oil production....Venezuela's production has dropped steadily to about 2/3 of where it had been and nobody is dumb enough to come drill there and invest money only to have their work seized down the road.

Chavez's successor is screwed. He's going to get all the blame as the oil money continues to dry up.

So you understand that price controls (ceilings) can cause shortages. Then you must agree that price floors result in surpluses. Should we end the minimum wage and get people back to work?
