    Default Venezuela and the Myth of the Liberal Media

    John Oliver, who is supposedly a Leftist, made an episode where he constantly lied about Venezuela in order to make Socialism look bad. Somebody made this video to debunk the claims, and Youtube, which supposedly has a left-wing bias, banned the video.

    We live in a Capitalist country which means the rich control everything. The thought that the rich would allow the establishment to promote true leftist ideas is objectively idiotic.

    Maduro was elected to a second presidential term last May on a 46% turnout.

    The election was condemned as fraudulent by the Organization of American States and the European Union. However, it was recognized by Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia, Syria, and others.
