    The huge entitlement payments of your government are necessary due to the financial holes of pure capitalism. If you had have a solid health system like we do, you could even expect a surplus.

    Think differently. The carriers and bases are why you need them.

    Except that similar out of control growth of entitlements is, as far as I know, universal among FIrst World Nations.


    So, with all due respect, unless you can show me that I am wrong on that fact, your point about capitalism, is not only refuted,


    but ....


    Well, let's leave it with refuted.

    We have a different system here. Health insurance is an obligation and people cannot be rejected. We have less comedones between the production of a medicine and its receiver.

    Think rationally. It's a violent world, likely to become more so.

    I guess your gov has the pretension to be superior to all others combined. In fact, however, it is impossible for the military to invade Venezuela.

    Militarily? I'm for it.

    Why would we? If necessary, we can raze it from the air.

    Granted. But it isn´t realistic and the effort doesn´t justify the costs. Actually, the costs could lead to a collapse similar to the one of the SU.


    Bolton, Pompeo, Trump, they all dream of the invasion. Because bombing Venezuela would not earn them a drop of oil or allow them to exercise control over it.
