… Ouch ! A Stunning Rejection of Maduro [#Venezuela][#Chavez][#socialism]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 12th,2015

.. the Chavistas adopted economics [i.e. , socialism] , and look at what a grand old mess it has made : …

.. [-] oil — Venezuela is one of the most richly endowed oil rich nations in the Western Hemisphere . it is able to produce more than 2.5 million barrels / day , but the output has been sliding over the last 20 years . A grievous lack of investmest is the cause , and the Chavistas wonder why ?? …

.. [-] more oil more oil — Venezuela is also blessed with one of the largest oil shale regions in the the world . The region ,called the Orinioco , has an estimated 250 billion to 300 billion barrels of proven reserves . That would make it more than double the size of the reserves of any Middle Eastern nation . Yet , their development has barely scratched the surface . A grievous lack of capital investment is crying out to exploit this region. Guess why ??

.. now all of the years of gross economic mismanagement has caught up to the Chavistas . Hugo Chavez has been dead and buried for a couple of years , but his successor , Nicloas Maduro , has to live with the economic RUINS OF WHAT Chavez – style socialism has wrought ..

.. The Venezuelan conservative opposition has [miraculously] won almost a 3/4ths majority in the Venezuelan national Assembly . With that majority [presuming Maduro and his cronies allow it to stand] , the opposition can do quite a bit to reform Venezuelan society ..

.. right now , the nomination is in real trouble . US Sen John McCain [R-Az] has come out openly against her nomination . Much more so is why he did . He has stated specifically that her position on POTUS ‘ so – called Executive Action on Immigration [which came out during questioning for her confirmation hearings] is what made him come out so openly against her …

.. She will not get a vote anytime soon . A good number of committee chairmen are against her . I suspect most of the Senate leadership has decided to vote her nomination down . But the Majority Leader ? That I am not sure of , yet . if he decides to oppose her , then her nomination is effectively dead , no matter how much His Lordship and the Senate DemoCraps protest …
