The socialist country of Venezuela continues to plummet in a downward spiral.
Sunday marked the fourth day that the country has been without power which makes it the worst blackout in decades.
The absence of electricity has sent the country into total chaos and 17 people have been announced dead.
Of these 17 people, 9 were waiting on emergency medical attention which was hindered from the blackout.
“The outage is by far the longest in decades. In 2013, Caracas and 17 of the country’s 23 states were hit by a six-hour blackout, while in 2018 eight states suffered a 10-hour power outage, government officials said at the time,” Reuters reported Sunday. Of the 23 states in Venezuela, six are completely without energy. Imagine if 25% of America didn’t have electricity!
The outage started at the Guri damn which is where much of the country’s electricity comes from. Maduro originally called the blackout “sabotage” even though it is unclear exactly how the blackout started in the first place.
Many suspect it is because of the eroding infrastructure. Just some good ole socialism for you!
The hospitals in Venezuela are a total mess as well. Check out the scene in one hospital where doctors resorted to fanning the babies.
This is what America has to look forward to if we decide to elect more socialists to office. It’s appalling that we have such a large population in America who are wanting to implement this type of government.
Reuters reported that, “Food rotted in refrigerators, people walked for miles to work with the Caracas subway down, and relatives abroad anxiously waited for updates from family members with telephone and internet signals intermittent.”
A total mess.
Socialist Nicolas Maduro, who is responsible for all the chaos in Venezuela considering he implemented socialism which naturally brought government control and corruption, held a rally where he tried to calm his country.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
The situation is only made worse by Venezuela’s political instability. As people suffered Saturday, Nicolas Maduro held a rally in Caracas, where he blamed the electricity problems on “electromagnetic and cyber attacks directed from abroad by the empire,” (by which he means the United States).
“The right wing, together with the empire, has stabbed the electricity system, and we are trying to cure it soon,” Maduro added, trying to calm the crowd.
“I will tell this for the first time,” Maduro continued. “We are in the process of investigation and correcting it all because there are many infiltrators attacking the electrical company from within.”
So what does Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have to say about all of this?
She seems to always give her two cents whenever she has the chance. Well the congresswoman from New York has absolutely nothing to say about the situation.
Why? Because Venezuela is living proof that socialism is destined for failure no matter how you look at it.
While she didn’t have any time to talk about the disaster in Venezuela, Ocasio-Cortez did have time to talk about how “evil” capitalism is and how America is “garbage.”
America, which is a capitalist country, is the richest and most successful country in the history of mankind. Venezuela, which is a socialist country, is in financial ruin where people are forced to eat their pets because they can’t afford food.
But according to Ocasio-Cortez, America is the country with problems.
