    Should America rescue Venezuela on the condition that the Maduro regime step down and allow a new government to be formed?

    More than 50 countries urged Venezuela on Thursday to receive aid due to the country’s food and medicine shortages.

    Many Venezuelans under the socialist Maduro regime have reverted back to a bartering system to acquire food and medicine.

    A June U.N. report said “Venezuelan security forces are suspected of killing hundreds,” yet the police and government were immune from the consequences.

    “We are projecting a surge in inflation to 1,000,000 percent by end-2018 to signal that the situation in Venezuela is similar to that in Germany in 1923 or Zimbabwe in the late 2000’s,” said Alejandro Werner, the director of the IMF’s Western Hemisphere Department.

    Conditions in the country have worsened, causing Venezuelans to flee to countries like Colombia, Brazil, Chile, and the United States. Colombia has particularly seen an influx of 250,000 Venezuelans since August, with 3,000 people still flowing into the country each day according to a Washington Post report.

    They can be rescued by the price of oil shooting back up to where it used to be. Trump’s helping with that.

    The problem is that Maduro has caused their oil industry to decline.
    Chavez kicked out the Oil companies that know how to extract the oil and refine it.

    The price of oil collapsed a few years back, and so did Venezuela. Maduro had nothing to do with oil’s price.

    I think what is happening in Venezuela is horrible.

    Really think America invading it will make things better?

    No. The Venezuelan people got them selves into their current mess because the Left was able to harass, protest, out-scream & demonize ANY AND ALL OPPOSITION until finally there was noone left to fight. Left wing Socialist radicals called the opposition "Bigots" and claimed only the Socialists "cared about poor children"....today, millions are starving in Socialist dominated Venezuela.

    Hard working people on the Right (the ones who actually carried Venezuela) were too busy making a living to protest. While they toiled, the Left continued to spread propaganda and lies and FEW stood against it. The Right "hoped" good would prevail and was timid and passive.

    That's when the left won and their Constitution fell. Too many people in Venezuela stood by quietly while the Left seized more and more power and control. The Socialist used propaganda to shame the Right wing into silence and the Right wing obeyed....quietly.

    The longer the Right Wing opposition put off showing courage, the harder and harder it got until finally guns across the nation of Venezuela were seized in 2012 setting the stage for a Dictator to seize power.

    They got the dictator they deserved. All that was required was for the opposition to remain silent.
    They dug their own hole. They will have to man up., grow some balls and fight their way out of the mess THEY allowed.

    Freedom is not FREE. Surprise!!

    If we intervene now the Socialists will simply say the USA interfered with the "Great Progress" they were making...and Socialists in the USa will use that to their advantage here at home.

    The big socialist lie is that they will help the poor and make everyone equal. The truth is that Socialist are nothing but looters who enslave the middle class. Venezulea will need a revolution to get Moduro out of power.
