    Coup in Venezuela ongoing

    Guaido is the head of Venezuela's National Assembly. He declared himself interim President in January and promised a transitional government and free elections to end the rule of the socialist Maduro regime, which has overseen the once-wealthy oil nation's descent into economic collapse and a humanitarian crisis that has been endorsed by the US is participating in a Coup that has been going on for two days. The military remains loyal to the dictator Nicolás Maduro although the Air Force and some National guard units have sided with Juan Guaidó.
    Venezuela should be one of the most rich countries in the world because of their oil reserves. Back in the 80's there was prosperity everywhere with international oil companies building infrastructure, refineries, paying good wages and life was good in that country, although there was a crime problem with thugs kidnapping foreign business folks for ransom that the companies readily paid so that problem got continually worse.
    Chavez came along as a populist president and immediately took over the oil companies, nationalizing them and putting the profits in his pockets, Maduro has done the same along with disarming the population.

    All the above is just a little history lesson about why we should never let the government take our guns away from us.
    In Venezuela, all guns that are privately owned(very few) must be stored in government ran armory's.
    So, when this Coup started, the Government shut down the armories. Now only the government and the military have guns.
    See how that works? Now they are using rocks against armored vehicles and automatic weapons.
    I suspect the coup will fail......

    It wasn't but a couple of years after Maduro seized the oil monies that all the major companies started to flee Venezuela. All the global oil companies, food production companies, GM and several other auto companies left so all those workers then became unemployed and with no other industries to hire them, they all started to starve.
    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    One of the richest countries in the world at one time. Just shows the real effects of socialism which has never worked in any fashion, anyplace it was ever tried, yet our current crop of liberal politicians are trying to push our country in that direction.

    Term limits, a capped pay system, no 100% retirement system and no special medical or dental programs.

    Sounds good, but who'd vote to cut their own purse strings in congress? You'd need to elect an entirely new bunch of chimps in both houses.
