Sorry, socialism will never work ft. Liz Wheeler | #TruthStraightUp

In the history of the world, where has socialism ever ended in anything other than death, destruction, and oppression?

People in the Soviet Union waited in line for hours for a single loaf of bread. They ate their own shoes to prevent starvation from setting in. People in Cuba have to bring their own light bulbs and blankets to the hospital. The Venezuelan government shoots dissidents in the streets. Mothers are forced to barter for antibiotics for their sick children.

Despite what the Left says, socialism has never worked and will never work. Anyone who says otherwise has either never read a history book or is hungry for power.

It’s funny to me that self-avowed socialists, like AOC, always refuse to answer the question, “Where in the world has socialism ever worked?” In the history of our world, where has socialism ever ended in anything other than death, destruction, and oppression?

In Cuba, you have to bring your own light bulb to the hospital. You have to bring your own blanket to the hospital. Medical instruments are rusty in operating rooms. In the Soviet Union, people waited in line for hours for a single loaf of bread. To prevent themselves from starving, they ate their own shoes. There are photographs of this. In Venezuela, they shoot
dissidents in the street. Mothers with sick children are bartering for antibiotics.

These politicians on the left who want to bring that socialism here, have you never read a history book or are you just a government bureaucrat hungry for power?
