Just a few of the noteworthy items from the video:
-It is now more lucrative for the Venezuelan military to traffic food instead of drugs thanks to hyperinflation and food shortages.
-World of Warcraft (video game) money is now more valuable than Venezuelan money. Venezuela used to be the richest economy in South America before socialist thugs put their loyalists in charge of the oil industry.
-Speaking of money, many Venezuelans are ditching the Bolivar and investing in BItcoin instead.
-Venezuelan hospitals are severely lacking supplies, sheets, soap, etc. Performing surgery is likened to practicing "battlefield medicine." Infant deaths and malaria cases are also skyrocketing across the country due to severe lack of medical shortages and lack of food. Venezuelans report that they have to bring their own medicine to hospitals if they want treatment as doctors lack 80% of the medicine they need. In 2017 alone, infant mortality rose to almost 35%, and maternal mortality rose to 65%.
-Venezuelans have lost an average of 19 lbs. in weight due to food shortages (meanwhile, Maduro was seen snacking during a live TV broadcast and consequently ridiculed for getting fat during a food shortage). Venezuela is now #1 in Latina America for acute malnutrition.
-82% of Venezuelans now live in poverty, and mass migration of Venezuelans to other countries is taking place.
-After the Venezuelan Supreme Court dissolved congress and declared Maduro to be the National Assembly, Maduro claimed it was a "right wing conspiracy." After much protest and global condemnation, the Venezuelan Supreme Court reinstated the National Assembly.
According to Bernie Sanders, these would all be good things if they happened in America:
This is why Americans must never give up our guns.
