We don't need no stinckin' identity card in Venezuela!

Just a short note about economics under a socialist government. Venezuela is one of the most oil-rich countries in the world yet under Hugo Chavez and now Nicolas Maduro this nation has and is having problems with its economy. There is a new government policy now where you not only have to have an identity card to buy items at the food store you now must have your fingerprints taken so as to keep you from buying too much of one product or another. Of course Madudro has blamed hoarders, smugglers, and the CIA for the food shortage.

Nothing like having a heavy-handed, socialist government intervening in a market....stick it to the rich, and when I say rich I mean those that have wealth but do not have friends in the government.

It seems that once again we have an example of socialism making everyone equal. Equally poor and hungry. Well, everyone except the leaders in the government and their friends.......
