Right I'm just saying an actual free market and pure capitalism could only exist in an anarchist society. That may be worse than in a regulated State but in a regulated democratic State capitalism will always devolve into a crony system, a welfare State and ultimately Socialism, which ultimately leads to poverty, famine, death, etc...

I think most people can agree that there has to be a balance

The extreme right or extreme left should never be given too much power: See Pinochet in Chile or Hugo Chavez & his succesors in Venezuela.

Thats why when i hear people wanting every republican or democrat voted out, it bugs me, one party having 90% control would never be a good thing, once one side gets that much power they stop listening to the people who elected them & start serving their own interests & moving in different directions, then they try to change the rules in a power grab move.

People are filling the streets in Venezuela demanding Maduro step down. They're being met with government forces, tear gas, the works.

Reuters is reporting that Juan Guaido has sworn himself in as interim president. He is the president of the National Assembly.

Trump administration could recognize the head of Venezuela’s opposition as the country’s legitimate president as early as Wednesday - @Reuters

I'd like to laugh.  But most Angels fans probably learned Venezuela was a country and not related to Valenzuela due to Ralshton Schmidt.

I learned like everyone else in the early 90s.

I see that the US is once again showing it’s worth as a stabilizing force. 

The US wasn't the only one to back Guaido today FWIW.
