123,000 VENEZUELANS POUR INTO COLUMBIA LOOKING FOR FOOD

by Joshua Krause, The Daily Sheeple:

What started as a trickle, with several hundred desperate women defying border guards and crossing into Columbia to retrieve badly needed supplies, has turned into a flood. The Venezuelan government has acquiesced to the demands of its people, and has started opening the border with Columbia for brief periods of time, and Venezuelans are taking advantage of that in droves.

It’s estimated that over the weekend, 123,000 Venezuelans crossed into Columbia to buy supplies that can’t be found in their own country. And this is only the second weekend in a row since the government started opening the border, after closing it nearly a year ago over a fears that smuggling was causing shortages. There were so many people, that businesses in border towns faced a few shortages of their own, and had replenish their stocks in neighboring communities.

As strange as it may sound though, while the government loosens border restrictions to allow Venezuelans to buy supplies, domestically the government is clamping down harder than ever before. President Maduro has ordered the army to watch over food processing plants, and oversee the production and distribution of dwindling food supplies. Surely, as the government exerts more control over the food supply, shortages will worsen, and we’ll see even more people trying to leave the country.

    “… since the government started opening the border, after closing it nearly a year ago over a fears that smuggling was causing shortages.”

    The only way that smuggling can cause a shortage is if needed resources are being smuggled OUT of a country, not into it. Venezuela’s neighbors do not seem to have any food shortages, so it is unlikely that any food is being smuggled out of Venezuela. This is yet another lie being used as cover for their incompetence. It is THE hallmark of socialism that it cannot even feed its own citizens. Where socialism goes, destitution always follows. Sometimes this happens slowly and sometimes quickly. All depends upon whether or not their gov goes full retard with it or not.
