Forty countries have condemned the dictatorship Nicolas Maduro is trying to inflict on the people of Venezuela. Newt Gingrich says that is significant and shows that a lot of people see the danger geo-politically.
Newt Gingrich explains why this matters and how bad politicians with bad ideas can destroy a prosperous nation. When people rebel, force is used. Then the poor are pitted against the middle class. Maduro has armed the poor to make certain his dictatorship survives.
It’s what happens to all left-wing ideologies, he says. The process is always the same Newt says: They make big promises, then they rip off people, followed by redistribution from the productive, next is the collapse of the economy, and finally there is the imposition of the dictatorship.
It is a terrible tragedy.
If allowed to survive, it could de-stabliize South America, Central America, and even Mexico.
Americans must learn what the policies of socialism do to a nation. We also have an obligation to make certain this danger does not expand, he concludes.
