I love Venezuela and USA Reply The Underdog says: February 18, 2020 at 7:02 pm Socialism is evil. If you agree, feel free to subscribe to Libertarian News. I post similar content to ReasonTV and John Stossel. Reply Vintagegamer says: February 18, 2020 at 7:05 pm Socialist policy is despicable. All it does is give the government permission to steal, and causes more deaths than any other ideology. My grandmother lived in Nazi Germany and it still makes her angry when people try to push to make governments socialist. Ask anyone who lived under the oppression of socialism how they feel and I will guarantee they despise it. Reply Paul Valentine says: February 18, 2020 at 7:12 pm then why do Latinos vote for Socialist when they move here, what makes them think it wont be the same here? Reply Bob Beckel says: February 18, 2020 at 7:17 pm Wow! The people of Venezuela don't know how Socialism happened? The people of Venezuela did not vote for Socialism? Are we getting the true story of how Socialism happened to Venezuela? The American people need to wake up to the fact that the Venezuelan people walked into Socialism with eyes wide open. And, that the American people are about to do the same thing. We are just as dumb. Reply Liam Moss says: February 18, 2020 at 7:18 pm If the US wants to turn the tide on its youngsters calling for more state involvement in the economy then you should hand out millions of conditional work permits to Venezuelans. Let them come, work hard and tell the story of their home country. They will become the best Americans and the poster children for capitlism in the battle against the evils of socialism. Reply Flying Solo says: February 18, 2020 at 7:20 pm Welcome to America. Please respect the country and its history and learn to speak English. Not a lot to ask. Reply fisharmor says: February 18, 2020 at 7:49 pm Whoa there, Reason, if you keep spreading stuff like this then our massive and senseless public waste project on the border might stop seeming like such a good idea. Reply Pirusiandres says: February 18, 2020 at 8:23 pm Colombia opened its borders to the humanitrian catastrophy caused by the socialist in Venezuela. I thought, finally Colombian politicians did something correct. The vast majority of journaist, politicians and influencers here in Colombia agree that is imperative to keep the frontier open. I know there is some xenophoby, but the vast majority accept this, uncomfortable, situation. Reply hmmm says: February 18, 2020 at 8:38 pm And they don't understand that if they vote for the same leftist policies here that destroyed their countries as the majority of them do, we have nowhere to flee Reply Martin Stringer says: February 18, 2020 at 8:52 pm bank managers, business owners degreed people. People that WANT to work, that aren't in a gang or working for a cartel. These are the immigrants we need by the bucket. These people all seem grateful. they want to be here, to be Americans, to help, to work, to be productive. But especially because they're grateful, not entitled. Reply Nigel Palmer says: February 18, 2020 at 9:08 pm Fleeing Socialism or fleeing USA aggression and sanctions? Fleeing a country that just built 2 million homes for homeless ppl, What a load of Bollox this title is I won't bother to watch the video. An idiot below me mentions how many ppl Stalinism killed. I wonder if he can count high enough to measure the ppl Capitalism has killed, probably not. Reply Jim Bob says: February 18, 2020 at 9:10 pm No more immigrants! Reply Adam Leho says: February 18, 2020 at 9:11 pm Verdadmente triste lo que ha occurido en Venezuela, espero que un dia las cosas sean mejor Reply Ms G says: February 18, 2020 at 9:18 pm Cubans slaved for free GIVING Venezuela their food until Obama freed trade, then Venezuela lost their slaves. Oops. No more food. I don't feel sorry they starved when Cuba stopped being their slaves. NO MERCY to slavers. Reply Bruno Foca says: February 18, 2020 at 9:26 pm I has worked with Venezuelans refuges here in Brazil and personally helped relocate more than z 5.000 people, I now have many Venezuelans friends and some of them still believe and want socialism. They still don't get why the country broke. Reply Ryals D. Jacob says: February 18, 2020 at 9:37 pm How is a community of people gathering together shared resources and handing them out according to need not socialism? Sounds like maybe it wasn't socialism that made them flee their homes but deeper political strife that requires a stronger understanding of what is going on than just a red scare. Reply 99guspuppet says: February 18, 2020 at 9:40 pm wonderful Reply Kassra MZH says: February 18, 2020 at 9:48 pm How many generations should lose everything to the socialism plague until we learn the lesson… Reply sdozer1990 says: February 18, 2020 at 10:04 pm An issue with giving away free stuff to refugees is that they become dependent and decide the government must provide free stuff, too. WalkAway from socialism! Reply Paulman50 says: February 18, 2020 at 10:05 pm Let's hope the Democrats don't win or you'll be back in the same situation. Reply Bill Boze says: February 18, 2020 at 11:01 pm These are the immigrants we need. They are never voting for Bernie or Elizabeth. Reply Alucard says: February 18, 2020 at 11:01 pm Cool, so where are you storing people fleeing capitalist Ethiopia? Reply Andy Jordan says: February 18, 2020 at 11:17 pm And they say Capitalism is in humane? God bless these people and I hope their home country can regain its status as one of South America's best economies. Communism starves and kills. Reply MrFluffysteel says: February 18, 2020 at 11:58 pm Soooo…they left a socialist utopia because it is failing and came to a country where capitalism affords ex-pats….free stuff? Reply Mean Mr. Mustard says: February 19, 2020 at 12:02 am Most of these people would vote for Bernie Sanders. Reply s0nnyburnett says: February 19, 2020 at 12:05 am Any of them vote for Bernie or the other pinko traitors they can go back. Reply Chuck Solutions says: February 19, 2020 at 12:05 am I am happy to help anyone in need and seeking assistance, but PLEASE become American. Learn English and truly assimilate into American culture. Otherwise, get healthy and go back to Venezuela and reclaim your country. I understand both are very challenging and you all have been through so much but if you don't really assimilate, you continue to fracture my country. Reply Dylan Hart says: February 19, 2020 at 12:15 am Some of the comments here from the 51 dislikes are ugly. Xenophobia should not be tolerated on the right. We need to return to the pro-immigration views of Ronald Reagan and George HW Bush. Reply Jason Paul says: February 19, 2020 at 12:56 am If you don't like Socialism, please don't accept your Unemployment checks. Or your Medicare and Medicare treatments and benefits. Or your Social Security checks. They are all socialist programs, that is, EVERYBODY pays in so that EVERYBODY benefits. Don't be fooled (and I know its human nature never to admit you were especially when you were. And the ones doing the fooling KNOW this about you) by wealthy politicians who tell you socialism stifles innovation, creativity, job growth blah blah blah. They know socialism will require THEM (and their benefactors) to pay higher taxes to benefit YOU. So they attempt to keep you focused on the "promise" of capitalism and the "opportunity " it creates for all. You don't have to PUBLICLY admit you were fooled. No, in America we have the secret ballot. You can go in the booth, cast your ballot, and no one will know you voted to Make America Sane Again and stop believing the "What a Great Economy" BS. And the day after the election, in the privacy of your garage, you can scrape off the Trumper Sticker off your vehicle.

I just subscribed so I can voice against your propaganda! You are on my watch list buddy!? Reply Christian Rodier says: February 19, 2020 at 1:24 am Welcome, we too as Americans were once refugees running from a regime that didn’t respect our rights Reply Gianni Marco says: February 19, 2020 at 1:57 am But, but, Democratic Socialism! Bernie and the Dems say that Socialism is good and Capitalism is bad. Maybe we should take in the refugees from Socialist countries who WANT to assimilate to America!! Reply George Cortes says: February 19, 2020 at 2:23 am “Only politicians talk about socialism” that’s it right there Reply Lycaon1765p says: February 19, 2020 at 3:02 am Remember that socialism kills. Not just people, but your hopes and dreams.I hope we reform our immigration system so that people like this could escape such a horrid situation easier. Reply René Casaña says: February 19, 2020 at 3:09 am I hope they vote for Trump once they get US citizenship. Good hard working people. Reply jcritch42 says: February 19, 2020 at 3:36 am Mutual aid societies and Churches can provide better charitable relief than ANY government agency!!! Reply Rum Have says: February 19, 2020 at 3:57 am Lets all agree that billionaires are worth demonizing and we won't be able to have a place people can escape to.#socialismsucks Reply Rum Have says: February 19, 2020 at 3:59 am Bernie Sanders is more dangerous than 50 greedy American billionaires. Reply Antonio Yousoufian says: February 19, 2020 at 4:05 am Bernie 2020 Reply Ellipsis of Triple Tap says: February 19, 2020 at 4:35 am America is full to those that don't share our culture, values and language. Go somewhere else you ungrateful shits… Reply meateatercat says: February 19, 2020 at 5:02 am Then come here from the country that THEY destroyed with their voting patterns… What kind of fucking politicians do you think they are going to vote for once they are here? Pure insanity. Reply vjm3 says: February 19, 2020 at 5:05 am Fuck Socialism. From Fascism to Marxism to Communism, fuck Socialism.

Death to Warren Buffet death to capitalism death to the dollar. Spew that Propaganda REASON TV Reply Robert Fernandez says: February 19, 2020 at 5:50 am Your fake accounts and fake comments are easily incoherent, fuck your Propaganda REASON TV Reply Ø says: February 19, 2020 at 5:56 am Storage unit businesses are a cool hack. They also sound like exactly the kind of idea that regulation-toting bottleneckers would love to crush. Reply William Hermanson says: February 19, 2020 at 6:27 am Don't mean to sound like a terrible person but I dunno how I feel about this. I feel America could help in a better way then allowing a system like this to harm people. I also found it funny when they were like we want to help America but will send all our American dollars back to Venezuela. Reply guy says: February 19, 2020 at 6:31 am Ah-ha, so this is what immigrants look like… Welcome! Reply The Grim Critic says: February 19, 2020 at 6:36 am Don’t worry ya’ll. Venezuela isn’t real socialism. Reply Anti-Confederation.Party says: February 19, 2020 at 7:03 am How is it they can immigrate to the USA and me as a Canadian with deep roots(Mayflower and more) in the USA has no options except if I have $500,000 new business capital. Reply RyeOnHam says: February 19, 2020 at 7:43 am I love all these people. Vote Libertarian when you get your citizenship. Reply D.E. Sarcarean says: February 19, 2020 at 9:02 am Such a bias, ReasonTV should do videos on all the people fleeing Capitalist countries for countries with socialism. Reply johngalt857 says: February 19, 2020 at 11:06 am But are they coming here for freedom, or free shit promised by leftist poliTRICK$ters like Comrade Bernie?The problem with evading reality is that YOU STILL LOSE demographically and those engineering your replacement buy state elections, as has happened in Virginia. Reply Tim Giraud says: February 19, 2020 at 11:32 am When people flee from the US into socialist places… then and only then can anyone claim socialism works Reply Johnny Darvall says: February 19, 2020 at 11:57 am I wonder how many of these people voted for socialism Reply TechYK says: February 19, 2020 at 1:01 pm This is for anyone saying "you should go back and change your country" no, there is no changing that shithole, we need to live for our family and our kids. Reply Capitalist Revolution says: February 19, 2020 at 2:13 pm It's ok to punch a sozialist. Reply Critical Tweaker says: February 19, 2020 at 2:19 pm I'm a trump voter and it's hard to see this.. I'm for the wall and a stop to illegal immigration but this really pulls on my heart strings. Considering that Venezuela is a communist shithole I see no problem with Venezuelans coming here. It's the disrespectful and arrogant migrants from central America that I dont welcome… they piss on our flag and demand we let them in, one ungrateful woman spit out a tortilla and bean free plate of food handed to her. This immigration situation is very complex, and I think American needs to take this on on a country by country basis. Hope these new arrivals find peace in America. Trump 2020 Reply rumbly in my tumbly says: February 19, 2020 at 2:26 pm These are the true migrants.

Just don’t bring the socialism here. But, just asking, are they legitimate refugees? There are probably two billion human beings, at least, who could be considered refugees if poverty is the standard for asylum seekers Reply macsnafu says: February 20, 2020 at 2:21 am If we keep letting them (the politicians) ruin the U.S., where will Americans escape to?
