And that's exactly the point. Nobody has or will ever do it right.

Sounds good, but can you describe an unfettered market?

Wonder how many tried to stay?

Thousands of Venezuelans enter Colombia for food, medicine | Fox News

Quote:
Tens of thousands of Venezuelans poured into neighboring Colombia to buy food and medicine on Saturday after authorities briefly opened the border that has been closed for almost a year.

A similar measure last week led to dramatic scenes of the elderly and mothers storming Colombian supermarkets and highlighted how daily life has deteriorated for millions in Venezuela, where the economy has been in a freefall since the 2014 crash in oil prices.

Colombia's foreign ministry said in a statement that at least 35,000 Venezuelans entered Colombia on Saturday, and their entry took place "in an orderly manner and under conditions of security." The border was opened for roughly eight hours and will be opened again on Sunday, it said. Roughly 35,000 people also crossed during last week's 12-hour border opening.

Imagine the victims here in America when our pseudo-socialist experiment collapses? You'll see this exact same scene at Detroit and Buffalo border crossings.

Venezuela is as poor of an example of Socialism as Pakistan is of Capitalism.

The problem is that there are many other socialist countries that ended the same way.

Venezuela has oil. They have ports. Hell they have a pretty good GDP per capita. They should be doing a lot better than all their neighbors and they are not. It's 100% failure of socialism.
