Wanting to know if the people who support socialism had ever heard from people who’ve suffered under it, Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips headed to a Venezuelan Freedom rally in Washington, D.C.
It soon became abundantly clear that the Venezuelans in attendance were horrified by the idea of bringing socialism to the United States.
Asking them, “What is your message to those who want socialism here,” the attendees were in agreement: don’t do it.
“You do not ever want anything close to socialism,” one attendee said, while another added, “people are eating from trash cans in the streets, so how has socialism helped?”
Another attendee, whose family is still in Venezuela, said, “No Venezuelan can like socialism, because we’ve seen it put in place very well.”
