It is tragically comical how socialists always say this time we'll do it right. Thirty million dead in the 20th century and the snake oil still sells.

30 million? Conservative estimates put it at 100-110 million 20th century deaths directly attributable to communism. The Great Leap Forward in China alone claimed 45 million souls in 5 years.

You're right. About 60 million in WWII alone.

Please run as Socialists , Democrats. Your slogan could be , Lets make America Great like Venezuela. A few hundred million dead, but we'll get it right this time, might make a good campaign slogan too.

About 30 mill illegals and around 40 mill of the "12% of the population" + a shitload of degenerates.

100 million dead doesn't sound so bad.

For a broader view on this, I recommend the video about Exposing Mainstream Media Lies About the Illegal Alien Invasion by Judicial Watch. It covers Venezuela towards the end of the video:

15:52 ...reminded me of when I was in Venezuela. I was in Caracas last year. One of the most dangerous.. frankly... and I've been in very dangerous places... one of the most dangerous places I've ever been to in my life. I thought these guys would have learned a lesson. To learn the lesson of the ills of socialism. I said to them "What do you guys want? You know what Maduro is doing to people. What do you want?" [They said] "We want somebody who'll take care of us better." I was like you learned the exact wrong lesson. But the same thing could be said about [the migrant caravan] as well. They are brought up with a sense of "The government will take care of our needs. Well guess what? The U.S. is richer and bigger. They can take care of our needs even better." That's not to say these people [the migrant caravan], who would be here, wouldn't work hard. I'm not trying to say that either, but there's no question that they are looking for a country to take care of them better. 15:28 [People in the migrant caravan] "...Of course. We need. If we need, you should give."

There is a sense of entitlement definitely.

A massive sense [of entitlement]. This is a larger issue when it comes to anybody who comes from a non-capitalistic society. But that's what it comes down to, an incredible amount of entitlement. But that is what they are born with[/into]. I'm not trying to cast aspersions on their moral fiber.

Cause Norway isn't socialist. It's a capitalist democracy with some state owned industry.

It's hasn't happened yet, but all socialist countries will continue to implement socialist policies until it does. For example, import enough shitskins and implement enough price controls.

To be real about it.

Norway isn't frozen out the International Banking system, barred from selling it chief national export on the international market. It also is NOT under siege from the covert efforts of multiple Western nations to undermine the current government at all costs.

So... socialist systems succeed so long as they are supported by external capitalist systems? Why is it capitalist societies can function in spite of external pressures, but without external support socialist societies descend into tyranny and starvation in short order as we can currently see in Venezuela, as we’ve previously seen in Zimbabwe, Cambodia etc? And Norway isn’t socialist, at all. Social democracy is a form of capitalism, it is not socialism.

Socialism is easy when you are exporting oil for a healthy price and don't bother to have any other national industry.

The workers should be out in the fields working for the common good while singing their socialist propaganda songs. They just need a bit of reeducation and then they can have a great leap forward.
