At RealClearPolitics, Betsy McCaughey asks this question at the end of her article:
“Democrats in favor of socialism need to take a hard look at the results in Venezuela and Cuba. Is that what they want for America?”
Oh good grief, of course they do. They just want to ensure that they are at the top of Failed Socialist Experiment #76 so that they can a.) get obscenely wealthy and b.) thus be shielded from the outcome of the failure. What happens to the working classes is, as always, irrelevant.
As for the author: it’s well-meaning but naïve people like this who fail to understand fully the evils of socialism and its proponents.
