The youngest generation of Democrats keeps clamoring for a socialist government, but they have no idea the horrors it will bring.
A recent report was released revealing that more than 7,000 people have died in prison in Venezuela since 1999, when the socialist regime took over the country.
Be Careful What You Ask For
Even though socialism has failed on virtually every front, this generation of Democrats believes they have it all figured out.
The Venezuelan Prison Observatory report should give them a glimpse into the future of this country if they are not careful.
Since Hugo Chavez took power, there have been 7,329 documented prison deaths in Venezuela. That is roughly one death in prison every day since the regime took over.
In 2011, the Ministry of Penitentiary Affairs was created to reduce the violence in Venezuelan prisons. Since then, just over 2,800 deaths have occurred. Point being: there has been no decrease in the level of violence or deaths.
When you implement a socialist government, you will eventually have people starving for the necessities of life on a regular basis.
Currently, in Venezuela, there are people who have to cross the border to get basic supplies like milk, eggs, and bread.
When these kinds of desperate conditions arise, you have violence in your streets and the regime sends people to prison.
In Venezuela, roughly 40% of the prison population is under 30 years of age. Most of those individuals were arrested for robbery, no doubt trying to get the basic necessities or money to buy them.
To add insult to injury, prisoners are dying because they are not being properly cared for medically, resulting in cases of disease such as tuberculosis.
If so-called “democratic socialists” like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders have their way, this will also be the future of the United States of America.
