Venezuelan Entrepreneur Fights Tears As He Warns Bernie Fans ‘Socialism Literally Kills People’

A Venezuelan business owner told Fox that his country went from one of the richest in Latin America to the poorest as a result of socialism.

A Venezuelan business owner described how his country went from one of the richest in Latin America to the poorest as a result of socialism, while warning Americans considering turning the United States into a socialist country to think very carefully about what they are doing.

Jose Monagas, an entrepreneur, warned how socialized medicine, something Democratic presidential frontrunner Bernie Sanders has vowed to roll out in America, might sound good in theory, but in reality it brings chaos, poverty and human tragedy.

For example, if you get into an accident and the ambulance takes you to the hospital, you will just die outside the hospital,” Monagas told Fox News.

People die going from one hospital to another to see which one can take you.

Mongas said that Venezuela’s political failure goes far beyond the health care system and has now destroyed every aspect of life.

Right now, so many people in Venezuela are going to work without taking a shower,” he told Fox News. “So many people don’t have water to drink. They have been robbed, and they don’t know what to say.”

Monagas continued sharing details about everyday life in the socialist nation that would shock the average Bernie Sanders supporter.

He explained that the socialist government has been limiting access to basic utilities like electricity, making it impossible for entrepreneurs like himself to run a business in the country.

One of the biggest problems for us is paranoia with electricity because we have a software development service team and you cannot do software development without electricity and the internet,” he said.

Every day you’re risking that electricity will go out and you’ll have three days without electricity. It has happened before.

The country has no conditions for producers to produce food, for companies to stay there,” Monagas told Fox. “The economic situation is very bad.”

As a growing number of Americans appear to be considering voting for Bernie Sanders and his dream of a socialist America, many Venezeulans living in the United States have begun coming forward and speaking up, sharing their stories about the horrors of life under socialism.

Daniel DiMartino, a young anti-communist activist, told TheBlaze how the late Hugo Chavez tricked his countrymen into believing Venezuela was more impoverished than it was.

We were able to put food on the table, work hard, and pay for what we wanted. We were rich but didn’t know it,” DiMartino said.

I don’t want Americans to wake up one day and find themselves saying the same thing.”

  1. It’s bad enough that a full blown communist is ahead of the field. The fact that he’s 600 years old is even more troubling.

  2. Its not socialism or capitalism or communusm Its the healrh department that kills people regatdless of the political system they operate in My 99 yo gran was taken to the mist expensive private hospital in Australia bwcause she felt poorly Her dayghter heard nothing from them and the next morning went yo visit and was told that her mother had wen sent by ambulance to the most hirtible public hospital in the state when rhe best eas just around the cirner When she arrived there they told her that her mum had died on artival in the middle of the night from the Mount hospital .That’s how they operate in the lucky country

    • Australia is socialist – in all socialist countries, the govt runs the health care system, and everything else, that’s why they call it socialism. So yes, socialism is to blame for bad health care. IN 1977 when Russia was socialist/communist, I had to go to hospital in Moscow. YES IT MOST CERTAINLY IS SOCIALISM that does this, who do you think runs health care in a socialist/communist nation? The govt, which is…socialist/communist! It was abundatnly clear that it was the socialist system of Russia that ran health care, just as it is in every country like that, the govt runs everything and dictates everything. You have no idea what socialism or communism is and no idea what you’re talking about or how things work.
