Well, actually a few terrifying lessons:
- Socialism is self-perpetuating.
The people of Venezuela are suckling on the government teat, and they won’t let go until the milk inevitably runs dry.
Why should Americans be any different? Obamacare may eventually bankrupt us. But, once in place, it’ll be impossible to repeal.
- Chavez was behind in the polls, but still won.
He won because of point 1 above.
Even if Romney leads by 10 points, we could be in for an unpleasant surprise on November 6th. So we cannot rest until Barack Obama has been drummed out of office.
- No one will save us from ourselves.
Either we win in less than a month, or we will consign our children to a thousand years of darkness.
