The Democratic Socialist of America blames Obama for Venezuela melt down. Because you know Socialism is great so it has to be some one else fault.

Democratic Socialists of America calls on President Obama and the US Congress to end unjust sanctions against Venezuela

In the past year, Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) has been dismayed to see President Barack Obama and a bipartisan group of senators led by Marco Rubio (R-FL) violate US and international law to impose sanctions against the nation of Venezuela. We call on the President and Congress to reverse these actions and stop seeking to undermine the Venezuelan people and their legitimate, democratically elected government.
In 2014, the U.S. Congress, led by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), passed a sanctions bill that targeted Venezuelan officials by threatening to deny them visas and to seize their assets. Activities around the U.S. embassy in Caracas leading up to the protest, and cables released by Wikileaks about U.S. plans in 2006, suggest that this action came in the midst of political violence and upheaval in Venezuela that was at least partly fomented by the U.S. government in an effort to undermine the elected government of Venezuela. In March 2015, President Obama issued EO 13692, an executive order declaring Venezuela a national security threat to the United States. A month later, he himself admitted in a press conference that this declaration was a "pro-forma" exercise to justify the imposition of sanctions that would otherwise be illegal, and that Venezuela does not, in fact, pose a real threat to the United States. Now, in the past month, Senator Rubio has engineered a deal to extend the sanctions another three years -- still without any factual basis for calling Venezuela a threat to the United States or any legal justification for these measures.

This kind of dishonest and cynical behavior is an embarrassment to all good people in the United States. For DSA, a group of activists committed to fighting for socialism and democracy in the U.S. and around the world, it is especially repulsive.

We therefore state our solidarity with the people of Venezuela and call on our own government to stop its illegal, unjust interference with Venezuela, specifically to repeal these terrible laws and reverse this dishonest executive order.

I just want to say this one remark on this topic regarding tax plans. I've had this discussion many times with young Republicans who all too easily get into the habit of trusted all things Republican (which is due to being young and uninformed).

Regardless who makes a tax plan or tax cut or whatever, none of them will work in a society that has lost its moral compass. You need strong binding morale to make anything work in a society. We do not see enough morale in the country to believe any tax plan is gonna work, no matter how sincere a U.S. President or State Governor is. When Americas forsake their first love -- God -- they forsake the charitable heart of love. In the KJV Bible the word so often translated charity actually just means love in modern English. But back in 1611 love & charity were both one and the same thing. Today we think of charity as donating something to a Charity. But that is not what the word meant back in 1611 when the KJV was translated.

Simply stated, without Jesus Christ as the moral example of all our moral conduct, we do not have a binding standard that cannot be corrupted by politicians who do not follow the teachings of Christ but worship money over God. So, simply stated, there will never be a tax plan of any kind that will work in America as long as man worships himself.
