    Hardly. Wild eyed hyperbolic misrepresentation doesn't help your case. No one here is seeking to emulate Venezuela.

    Here? What do you mean by here? DP? Iowa? Your group of friends?

    Oh I think Joe knows exactly what he attempts here. He's just delusional if he thinks for a second that rational people don't see right through his games.

    The US. No one in the US is emulating them. And when asked for a failed form, we have to actually be emulating it, or it doesn't work as a comparison.

    More that some are either / or both lacking in understanding or honest enough to actually address the real issues.
