Socialism for the Uninformed

Hey, Bernie voters: Check out Venezuela   "Cheers for Vin Scully, the legendary voice of the Dodgers.  He's called a lot of games and big moments over the years.  His comments about socialism earned an A+ in the Truth Hall of Fame:
Socialism, failing to work as it always does. This time in Venezuela. You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden, there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez. Hello.
Thomas Sowell   "Socialism sounds great. It has always sounded great. And it will probably always continue to sound great. It is only when you go beyond rhetoric, and start looking at hard facts, that socialism turns out to be a big disappointment, if not a disaster. 

"While throngs of young people are cheering loudly for avowed socialist Bernie Sanders, socialism has turned oil rich Venezuela into a place where there are shortages of everything from toilet paper to beer, where electricity keeps shutting down, and where there are long lines of people hoping to get food, people complaining that they cannot feed their families. 

"With national income going down, and prices going up under triple­ digit inflation in Venezuela, these complaints are by no means frivolous. But it is doubtful if the young people cheering for Bernie Sanders have even heard of such things, whether in Venezuela or in other countries around the world that have turned their economies over to politicians and bureaucrats to run." . . .
