More Throttle to Venezuela’s Socialist Demise

Things look like they might be coming to a head sooner rather than later:

“What you have seen is little compared to what we will do to defend the people and their rights,” Maduro said on Tuesday night shortly after being granted the power to rule by decree, allowing him to create laws on his own, without consulting congress.

Maduro says the special powers will enable him to regain control of the country’s collapsing economy – which the president blames on “economic warfare” being waged by his opponents to destabilise his rule before December’s municipal elections.

Read it all, and understand that it could happen here–unless we are able to reclaim our country’s birthright of freedom and the rule of law.
