Socialist counties have a chronic history of shortages. There is a reason, socialsits criminiize providing commodiites. Socialists make providing commodies illegal then profess bewilderment when shortages result.
The former Soviet Union had long lines from everything from meat to toilet paper. Not to be outdone, Venezuela’s dictator, Hugo Chavez has threatened to jail grocers. Simon Romero, New York Times, has the sordid details :
Rememer HillaryCare? Mrs. Clinton wanted to criminallize providing health care? Chavez’s criminalization of the grocery business, is not putting food on anybody’s table. Mrs. Clinton’s criminization of health care was not going make anybody healthy and her proposed pseudo-criminalization of oil business would not put any fuel in your gas tank.
Give the long and sorry history of sociialism, what explains the continued obession with it? I suggest that socialists, like Hugo Chavez and Hillary Clinton, crave the personal power and are willing to spite the people to get it. That is they rather have the personal power than for you to have a full belly or full tank of gas.
