    Really feel bad for these people. Complete 180- from a thriving 1st world country with major resources to a 3rd world country that they cant leave. What surprised me in the video, was that there are actually supporters that exist in Venezuela for maduro.

    How can people watch this and not consider their own fallout bunker?

    Always wanted to go, but never had the chance after the government changed. Colombia is awesome.

    There are a ton, just like with any other dictator, and most of them are the extremely poor and impoverished people. Every Venezuelan I know here cannot stand him.

    60 years ago Venezuela was one of the 3-4 wealthiest nations in the world. Boy how things change.

    Sad to see as well. From the people I know from there too, it was a pretty great country for a good while.

    You know the party's over when that one guy takes his giant solo cup and leaves.

    This is what happens when fascism gains a foothold. Note that there are nutjobs who still support their leader. Sound familiar?

    (btw, great YouTube channel)

    Yes, yes it does. I think people here know all too well about that - especially after these last few years.

    That there are still people who support Tilman is just sickening.

    I wanted to add something in when I wrote that people over there still supported maduro, but I didnt want to turn it all D&D-ee... But yes, it just shows people will follow others off a ****ing cliff. Or, should I say, to the bottom of the ocean. Proudly. With their flags flapping above them as they smack the Earth.

    It really is a sad situation. One of my co-workers is from Venezuela and most of his family is still there. He goes and visits every Christmas and brings a bunch of medicine, food, and supplies. And I think like every 4 months or so he'll ship them a care package full of the same stuff. It's so corrupt so he has to pay the cargo merchants and the people receiving the goods in Venezuela to protect his cargo.

    Sad sad situation.

    ICYMI, his Caracas visit before the "exit".


    Seriously though...people who throw away their vote for "easy, no cost promises" means we're two bad votes away from turning into a shithole.
