How Socialism Works: $840 In Gold Bars Loaded On Russian Jet While Venezuelan’s Starve

In Venezuela, the citizens have no toilet paper, beer, or food. There was a point where they were eating animals from zoos and pets. And so many other issues, like no jobs, high unemployment, and so much more. But, it’s not a problem for the big wigs in the government, such as President Maduro, who live the high life and won’t spend money on the people

$840M in gold bars prepared for loading onto Russian jet at Venezuelan airport: report

About 20 tons of gold from Venezuela’s central bank was ready to be hauled away Tuesday on a Russian airline’s Boeing 777 that landed in Caracas a day earlier, a Venezuelan lawmaker wrote on Twitter.

The destination of the $840 million in gold bars was unknown, but a source told Bloomberg News that it represented about 20 percent of the country’s holding of the metal. The gold was set aside for loading, the report said.

The news outlet, which first reported on the tweet, identified the lawmaker as Jose Guerra. The lawmaker did not provide evidence for his claim but is identified in the report as a former economist at the country’s central bank with close ties to workers still there.

Noticias Venezuela, a news outlet in the country, posted a photo of what it identified as a Nordwind Airlines plane from Moscow that made the trip with only a crew aboard.

How much food could that gold purchase? How about the other 80%? Venezuela reportedly owes Russia billions, but, might they take care of the starving citizens first? Nope. Everything that is going on in the nation highlights exactly the way Socialism works, and this is what U.S. Democrats want here. Venezuela is a nation that should be rich from all their oil. Instead it is a complete sh*t show.

    You blame stealing gold on socialism? Donald Trump is a thief, a cheat and a grifter and he’s not a socialist. (or is he…?)

    The right claims every nation with universal health care is socialist. Are THEY stealing gold?

      Socialists are just as greedy as anybody else, probably more. The old wheeze about no such thing as a poor white Liberal didn’t spring up out of thin air.

      Donald Trump is a thief, a cheat and a grifter Prove it, sweet cheeks.

      Those countries tax everything to death to pay for what they call health care. They steal the gold of the working stiffs.
