Socialism or Death

This is always the way of Socialists regimes.

First, they try to convince with uplifting rhetoric about raising the people at the bottom of society.

Then they try to convince with uplifting rhetoric about the brotherhood of man and painting a picture of the great society they will build.

Finally, they try to convince by pointing out how many guns they have and that they’re not afraid to use them.

So you get socialism and death. Two for the cost of everything.

Anyway, there would be no riots if milk was plentiful and toilet paper was stocked. Aside from a few student-led factions, nobody really cares about repression of speech.

To be stable a country needs either a competent dictatorship/monarchy that can make hard and unpopular decisions, as in the Arab world, or full democracy in which grievances can be redressed at the polls, as in Norway.

The illusion of choice has been the most destabilizing factor in Venezuela. The people can’t vote for new a new government, but the old government isn’t authoritarian enough to function without popular support, and all their blunders have been the result of pandering to popular support: diverting funds from oil infrastructure investment, nationalizing electronics stores, etc.

Every day is Black Friday in the workers’ paradise. Everything is cheap, but have fun trying to get it.

U.S.A. – New National Anthem

Now, this is a story all about how
The world got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
To let this story unfurl
I’ll tell you how we became the best country in the world

In east America born and raised
With Indians was where I spent most of my days
Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool
And annexing more land to rule
When a couple of blokes who were up to no good
Started taxing tea in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and the UK got scared
It said said ‘You’re on your own’ and got the hell out of there

I cheered and freedomed day after day
As they packed their suit case and went on their way
It gave me a hiss and then it gave me my ticket.
I got my own country now, ‘I might as well kick it’.
