Ah ok. Now I can respond to your post. Yes, people wait for socialism. Whether that socialism is in New York, or in Venezuela, socialism sucks. It never works. You want to know how many times I have had to wait in a long line for Capitalist food? Never. It's never happened. I go to the store, and there are 15 isles with more food than I could possibly eat before it rots. Are you suggesting that violent kids, should be allowed to abuse the public? When I was a teenager, if I attacked a police officer, I would expect to get beaten, and rightly so. And by the way, if I did that, after getting beaten and returned to my parents, my father would give me a beating too. That's what it means to live in a civilized society. You punish those that are acting uncivilized. That's how you get people to act civilized in society. Maybe if more police were stopping criminal youths in Venezuela, they wouldn't be the 2nd highest murder rate in the world. The Most Dangerous Cities in the World "I spend 8 hours on USMB each day to tell you how bad socialism is. In socialism I would not have all that bags and this laptop!" The irony of that statement, is that it is true. Even the worst off people in our country, live better than most of the people in Venezuela. "The first thing I think of when I wake up is how bad socialism is." While I highly doubt anyone wakes up thinking how bad socialism is, it is still true that they would all be far worse off under socialism.
