Socialism is like cocaine. A little feels good, but make no mistake, it's a hard drug. Once you get hooked, then you need more and more to stay level – all while destroying yourself and blaming everyone / everything other than the drug for causing the problems in your life. Maduro isn't the real problem, he's just the dealer. Socialism itself (the drug) is the real problem.

I never said I supported Hillary, dumbfuck. I said that you tards would have no problem with the legitimacy of the case for the president having committed treason if it was Hillary instead of Trump, as you just proved. "hillary is allowed 20 felonies and Trump is not" The Equal protection clause? In the 14th amendment? The amendment your God Emperor called "questionable"? The one that explicitly sanctions the "anchor babies" you babies hate oh-so-much?

Peter Struck investigated Hillary as well, so you toothless monkeys should love him. "No President has EVER been spied on by a previous President except Trump." BAHAHAHAHAHA Do you losers still have your panties in a twist about that time Trump said Obama was spying on him? "Sore Losers bitter crybabies" I never new White House insiders are all Trump supporters.

Currency has no value. Currency crisis is not economic crisis. Yes the cost of a plantain today is more than the cost of a house 30 years ago but the value of a house is still greater than that of a plantain. Those who hold currency as security are dumb or poor.. Venezuela have food shortages which can be fixed. Venezuela is fine.

Blatantly lying, Mister Oliver! He repeats mainstream media talking points and completely forgets that the US empire is waging an economic war against oil-rich Venezuela, supporting and funding opposition groups and through American Food corporations.
Get some help here:
Seems like the US do exactly what they blame Russia for: Interfere and intervene in other sovereign countries with democratically elected governments!
Hands off Venezuela, USAID and US Government!

holy crap what a trainwreck the left is. socialism has failed on every level, everytime and your "new" ideas arent actually new its just repackaging what has failed time and time again. the fact that millions of idiots buy into this shit says a lot about higher education and our future.
MrMollusk7 - Před 7 minutami
"it factually has" I'm seeing a lot of lip, not so many facts. "you cant cite one instance of socialism working without capitalism" And you can't cite an instance of capitalism working without socialism. Unlike you, I'm not an infantile retard that refuses to identify socialistic principles co existing with the free market in every successful country on the planet. "where once the money from capitalism ran out" Are you actually disabled? What are you talking about? "what the fire department does." Put out fires with equipment funded by money you screeching Randian babies think they have no right to.

it factually has. listen i know youre a potato so arguing facts with you is useless. all anyone can tell you is, when pondering suicide that for the good of society you actually follow through with it. you cant cite one instance of socialism working without capitalism before socialism, and you cant point to one successful country where once the money from capitalism ran out, socialism thrived. Im sorry you have no idea what the fire department does.
MrMollusk7 - Před 4 hodinami

Everything that is happening in Venezuela is entirely the result of Socialism. Central planning, public ownership, and collectivism did that, not "mismanagement". An ad hominem attack on the Right to defend Socialism is grotesquely dishonest.
MrMollusk7 - Před 3 hodinami
Public ownership is not collectivization, which in no way describes why PDVSA took Venezuela down with it. If you stepped outside once in a while, you might realize that every government on the goddamn planet manages public holdings as an absolute necessity to establish something adults call "infastructure". How the fuck does collectivization relate to PDVSA? Did all the workers own their own oil rigs before PDVSA put them on government payroll? Or were they EMPLOYED by a publicly owned company? If you took of the fedora for a second you might be able to understand how bad management of public companies effect the country regardless of political ideology, instead of using your poor understanding of ideological terminology to feel smug about yourself.
John Robie
John Robie - Před 3 hodinami
Before you overzealously run your mouth, you might want to look up what "public ownership" means, and then look up how Venezuela increasingly nationalized PDVSA. Like I said, what's happening in Venezuela is the entirely predictable outcome of Socialism. Maybe if the apologists took a little time away from their sanctimony to actually learn how this all works, we would have fewer countries imploding and people wouldn't be forced to eat their pets. But you know, free stuff is all that matters, eh Comrade?
MrMollusk7 - Před 4 hodinami
"public ownership, and collectivism did that" Right, because their oil reserves were 100% managed by the rig workers and people. You absolute fucking moron.

Some people say Empire Files does a good job debunking this video.
How many of the people who hate John Oliver for condemning Venezuelan government are *actual* Venezuelans? How many of the people who support Empire Files debunking video are *actual* Venezuelans?
For foreigners who hate this video, do you hate it because you have solid evidences to debunk the existence of Venezuela's crisis? Or do you hate it because you are a socialist who got butthurt when a comedian condemns a troubled country that happens to be socialist, not realising Oliver himself refused to blame it on socialism?

Lies, lies, LIES! So disappointing. FORMER fan here... Jon Oliver's obvious agenda is to keep his show on air. The sell-out has shown his cards and those cards reveal Jon Oliver is a paid SHILL. Unfortunately, he is going to alienate the very audience that made his show possible and profitable. So, in order to keep on air Jon's now going to need to change his narrative to accommodate the very audience he typically likes to make fun of. There's some irony for you! What Jon is the last to know is, it's the beginning of his end. Sure Jon, blame it on the 'writers.' He sunk his own ship. Jon, go home. Peddle your propagandist agenda in your own land. Maybe over dinner with the Rothschild's (accurate phonetic pronunciation sounds like road shit...) Unfortunately or not, the Rothschild's (road shits) don't consider him good enough for them either.

Social democracy is not socialism. And democratic socialism is not social democracy. I am a social Democrat, so is Bernie Sanders, and so is I suspect John Oliver. The Bernie Sanders supporter in the beginning of the piece also sounds like a social Democrat. Part of the reason there's so much conflict over this is due to a misunderstanding of terms. A good way to tell if you're a socialist is whether or not you believe in a free market and owning property. Most of America believes in providing some measure of social programs and assistance to those who can't afford it, but almost no one wants to do away with capitalism entirely. Do some research, represent both sides as they are, and then maybe there won't be such confusion on this subject.

So, Oliver understands that having the price set by the government is a bad idea.. ..why is he in favor of socialism then?
So, Oliver understands that having the government own corporations is a bad idea.. ..why is he in favor of socialism then?
So, Oliver understands that governments can become corrupt.. ..why is he in favor of socialism then?
It's a great video about why Oliver is against socialism.. ..while speaking in favor of socialism..
Actually, the main reason why Oliver thinks socialism can work is because he believes in the pure motivations of the left. I can tell you now, Oliver, that the right thinks the same of their own side and that both sides are absolutely wrong about humanity. To be a ruler, even in the case of a socialist country, you have certain people to appease. If you cannot appease them, they will revolt, limiting your power and ability to control the country. That's what happened in venezuela. And strangely enough, you show one of the biggest failures that chavez did: firing those people at the oil company. They were too powerful for him to lose and he had too little loyalists behind him to regain control.
That's what happened. The economy took a nosedive due to mismanagement by the venezuelan government. And because the government was the central point of the economy, after all, they decide who gets what, who owns what and the price of things, the entire economy was pulled along with it. This is why socialism will never work. Social plans and stuff? Can work just fine, as long as it is limited in scale and not dependent on anything else. But socialism? No. Not possible

Please stop the “what if’s” and move your misguided peanut brain to Venezuela and make it the beacon of the world as you are clearly brilliant...or just keep using slight of hand humor to misdirect the 12 idiots who actually waste their time at your taping so you can make money. What a train wreck ass hat!
LesPaul2006 - Před 11 dny
6:31 Ummmm.... no. Chavez was inexorably bound to run out of money, and not just because of the excessive spending on social programs and the funding of other socialist regimes in South America (anyone remember that bag with a million dollars someone found in a Venezuelan private flight bound for Argentina?), but because of the nationalization of almost every single means of production in his country, from the big companies to literally the small bread bakery next door. Not to mention the few private business left had to face price controls and extremely tight regulations on the foreign currency they used to get some raw materials. Domestic production plummeted, and he had to start importing basic goods like toilet paper or flour.

Democrats have been stealing the money out of the SS Trust to fund all their social programs like abortions, illegal invasion, welfare, Medicaid, government pensions, etc.. This is what the Democrats want to destroy and bankrupt America while in the process making themselves the untouchable Elite.
Democrats need Nancy Pelosi , Senator Pocahontas, Maxine Waters, or Stormy Daniels as the DNC presidential candidate in 2020. Contact your DNC leadership now.
The DNC is so slimy we need to send the Ghostbusters 👻 in there to investigate.
We need military tribunals. DOJ, FBI, CIA, DNC are completely corrupt.
CNN, MSNBC, SALON, NPR, Huffington Post, Young Turks, state that the legal Americans who commit a preponderance of the violent crime in America, not the hard working and virtuous illegals. Illegal immigrants, especially of the serial variety, are peace loving individuals just like you and me.(ex. MS-13). In fact, the media and the DNC say that illegals are, in many ways, better members of American society than many Americans themselves. There has to me a mistake here. I’ve been told by the Democrats and the Main-Stream-Media that illegals pay their taxes and stimulate the economy by spending their hard earned wages in the local communities in which they reside.
