Does the Left Want to Turn the US into Venezuela? (Francisco Wong-Diaz, USA, 10/03/21 3:59 am)

The geniuses from the Progressive Left want to improve the US by turning us into Venezuela 2.5. The bunch of dangerous ignoramuses should be shipped to Siberia. No amount of academic or political mumbo-jumbo can justify the destruction of that once-prosperous Latin American country and the misery imposed on a good people.

How many WAISers have the moral fiber to speak up or act against the Communist destruction of Venezuela?

JE comments:  Francisco, your zeal on this matter doesn't address the question of who, anywhere, wants to turn the US into Venezuela.  Certainly nobody in WAISdom has expressed this desire.  We are fortunate to have frequent reports from our colleague in Caracas, José Ignacio Soler, who has shown us the fragility of Venezuela's economy (with 95% of its exports from one thing--petroleum), and its political turmoil.  The US has plenty of the latter, but an infinitely more diversified economy that isn't held hostage by fluctuating oil prices.

One revelation in The Hill piece above is that despite the outward sanctions, the US continues to provide aid to Venezuela--some $1.9 billion since 2017.  Presumably this is exclusively of the "humanitarian" variety.  Can someone explain further?
