This is the evil of socialism, and this is how it works. You vote for a gov't that robs Peter to pay Paul - and hope thay you're Paul. It never fails too - that once elected, that gov't is not only gonna take Peter to the cleaners - it is going to clean out Paul as well. It boggles my mind: in three generations, we here in the USA and Canada have gone from being fiercely independent pioneers who prided ourselves on caring for ourselves in the face of the worst of adversity... to whiney little bitches that expect gubbermint to take care of us and love us - the way our families should.
You punched your ticket, Venezuela - enjoy the ride.
