    Nor did i say that. I said people are not being told the whole picture in the West.


    Did i say it was a "raging success". They certainly have made success in some areas of the economy such as poverty, and extreme poverty, healthcare, education, and inequality.
    When was the last time the US invaded a business and told them to lower prices? Can't remember? Then how can you compare Venezuela to the US in terms of oppression?

    And regardless of whether you said the words "raging success" you still have consistently defended the country even as all of their "progress" has crumbled around them. Chavez had some brief success funding his agenda with an oil windfall and heavy debt. Strip that windfall away and all you are left with is a country with a broken currency and no industry to speak of. The people seem to grow more desperate by the day. When the current regime is thrown from power in the coming months, then will you finally come to understand how disastrous this "new socialism" has been? I'm betting not, because the leftist "intellectuals" that clearly have pawned your brain will twist and turn to come up with every excuse in the book why Venezuela didn't fail because of their own policies.

    I just hope for your own sake that you see through their thinly veiled bull****.

    Clearly you're jealous you aren't the one kicking his ass.

    You're right. I don't support socialism.

    That's fine you can support whatever you want. I'm talking about US foreign policy to force other nations to our advantage in the interest of US based IC's. at the expense of Latin American people's. I don't support that, and completely understand why Bolivia, Ecuador and Venezuela feel as they do.

    The point is there's no debate to have with you until you refine your cognitive skills. I mean, do you even have a defense for thinking "not all" meant "none"? How can you even have an intelligent conversation with someone who makes such egregious errors?

    How can anyone talk to you about real things when you do things like that?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Why'd you quote something and then not respond to it?

    To express how and why you're pointless to debate with. Do you do it on purpose or not?
