    What they need is large supplies of guns and ammo, training and a god damn revolution.

    It doesn't really work that way. 90% of the population just want a roof over theier head, eat decent meals, have transportation and medicine. The place is fucked

    My grandma used to say: "If you do what you always did, you get what you always got".

    Sulking in your barrio or favela or whateverthefuck they call them there isn't going to get you any handouts.

    Getting off your dead ass, and forming a new constitutional republic BY FORCE and utilizing the vast natural resources at hand to lift your nation up by its bootstraps could lift Venezuela solidly back into the first world.

    I hear you but certain things are not that easy. Spent time there also Colombia, Peru and Brazil. Could you just walk up to the White House and demand change??? And forget about the 50 people from the low level security all the way up to the top officials you have to pay off before you can say your sentence to the big man. I don't make the rules, just try and color in the lines

    To use the local vernacular: Plata o plomo. Except in this case, ""get the fuck out of my way o plomo""

    You don’t pay anyone off. You tell them what you’re doing and they either join up, get out of the way, or you kill them.

    I was in Ve back in 2008. It could be a paradise but they started eliminating the middle class about 50 years ago. They've since managed to eliminate the upper class. As it sits now there's just the mob and the police/army. Depending on which way the army goes will depend on how this all works out.

    Sure, but we're planning on a successful revolution. And there are more of us than there are of them....

    That is true in most places. Folks just want to be left alone and have enough for them and their loved ones. That mentality used to be institutionalized into our government until the 'Great Society' fucked us. Unfortunately for the good folks of Venezuela sometimes you have to go kill dickheads to be left alone. Sadly they are there.

    That's where the 3% movement came from. Our War of Independence was fought by only 3% of the population.

    Bring that down to 1%, just for a "today's perspective".
    Eighty million gun owners at 1%...

    That's 800,000 ready, able and willing.
    Another couple percent would likely jump in immediately after the beginning of any hostilities. Virtually overnight, you have 24,ooo,ooo ready, able and willing.
    What happens the next night?
    It boggles the mind...

    I'm proud to say that I believe in, and support, our Constitution.

    It's South America, you get one bad guy out, replace him with another corrupt politician, I wish the country the best but it will be a long road to get things back to stable there

    Anyone else catch Gov. Cuomo's concern about State revenue dropping this past yr by a whopping $2.3B, due to the mass exodus of millionaires??? :crackup:
    He wants to blame Trump. :crackup::crackup::crackup:

    All while he, himself, was entertaining a millionaire's tax as AOC IS.......these buffoons have no business running the government and yet, they succeed in brainwashing their masses into thinking so.

    NY State is as f'ed as NJ is........if not mistaken, all of the top States with more people fleeing their State than they have coming in are ALL Democrat strongholds but they have their voters convinced it's due to Republican mandates.....LOL!

    Aye, there's the rub. You have to find that initial group of people willing to die for their cause.

    R Acree WTF

    The secret is to make the other guy die for his cause.
