Bernie Sanders 2011: Venezuela Is Living The American Dream Better Than United States!

0 1,549

Just a little over 7 years ago, Socialist Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders posted a piece on his website declaring Venezuela was living the American Dream, better than the United States! The piece was entitled, Close The Gaps: Disparities That Threaten America. It was your normal, America is not exceptional and totally unfair socialist hit piece.

The piece concludes with, “These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who’s the banana republic now?”

This week, the Venezuelan government is running over it’s citizens with tanks. The government has shut down the internet, as well as access to CNN and BBC news. The people are starving and without water.

It does not get much worse than it is in Venezuela.

It was a pretty nice place at one time. The EXACT same policies that destroyed it, Bernie Sanders wants to enact here in the United States, the greatest liberty loving country that ever stood!

There are some interesting items in the piece. This one at the very beginning caught my eye.

“There are far fewer jobs than people seeking work, which is why unemployment is close to 10 percent or higher”

Correct, in 2011, under Obama!

In 2019, under Trump, we have more jobs than people and the lowest unemployment in my 50 year lifetime! Socialism did not do that Bernie, Capitalism did that!

No Bernie, they were not then, nor are they now, living any kind of American dream in Venezuela!

It goes on! “At the current pace of recovery — which is to say slower than slow — closing this gap could take 10 years or more. Talk about a lost decade.”

Yes, Bernie Sanders admitted, what the left has been trying to deny, that Obama’s recovery was slow. Trump sped it up and wages are rising, inflation is under control, and the standard of everyone is rising!

But the one that really gets me, is the ‘wealth inequality’ argument. The piece states:

“Finally, and most worryingly, there’s the widening wealth gap. The inequality of incomes in this country has been well documented and much commented on, to wit: The richest 1 percent of Americans now account for almost a quarter of the nation’s income, creating an imbalance even worse than the days of the Rockefellers and the Vanderbilts.”

No Bernie, they were not then, nor are they now, living any kind of American dream in Venezuela!

Let me explain Bernie. You make the wrong comparison, the left always does.

You want all the wealth you can get at the top, as it is what provides the standard of living for all. You compare the poor, in America, to the poor elsewhere. Not the rich to the poor.

You see, ya ol Bern, there is wealth disparity in Venezuela. The top have everything now and the bottom are starving. There is always rich and poor.

But the poorest in America are living better than 90% of the world!

Where do you think the poor in this country get loans? Poor people? No! The wealthy!

Bernie’s policies, are the kind of polices that destroyed California and Illinois. The wealth gap in California is skyrocketing as is homelessness!

California is falling apart! That is why, 53% of California Wants To LEAVE the State in the Near Future!

Jobs, businesses and citizens are fleeing in droves in a mass exodus!

California was declared the poverty capital of the US!

The once Golden State was named the #1 state for the ‘Worst Quality Of Life’!

The same is going on in Illinois! The people are fleeing in droves! New York! The same!

No Bernie, they were not then, nor are they now, living any kind of American dream in Venezuela!
