    Default Could you survive in a socialist state?

    http://news.trust.org/item/20190313140816-t7idj


    If leftists have their way and America becomes a true socialist state like Venezuela and what is happening there happens here, could you survive? Would you be without power? Could you hunt and kill your own food? Would you have shelter and warmth?

    I have all of these things just for a rainy day, but I doubt many do. Many leftists would succumb to starvation and violence. Which isn't a bad thing

    Unfortunately, in times of extreme hardship the government actually has the authority to confiscate food from people for redistribution. It's despicable, but true.

    The question is: If Bernie Sanders becomes the next President, will ILA pack up and leave or just hunker down?

    The leftists would expect someone else to hunt for them.

    Now hold on, is Jade Dragon a farmer? Because we had to spend $12B bailing farmers out thanks to impulsive trade wars you stupidly waged.

    ILA will delete the ILA account and create a new account with a different voice that just so happens to be in alignment with all of ILA's previous beliefs and positions.

    All Conservatives are going to do that, once Trump is gone. We know because they did it 10 years ago after Bush the Dumber, when they stapled teabags to their faces and postured over debt and deficits.

    Do you think Canadians aren't free? They all can smoke weed, but not all of America can. So score 1 Freedom Point for Canada.

    So they don't have grocery stores in Canada?

    They don't have restaurants in the UK?

    They don't have ice cream parlors in South Korea?


    Would you have shelter and warmth?
    You mean like what the people of Puerto Rico didn't have for months?

    No one believes you. You're just posturing on a message board to make yourself feel better for being a loser.

    Can anyone explain exactly how specifically socialism has caused the downfall of Venezuela?
