You would think that … when your economy gets to the point where people are eating their pets, people might have second thoughts about what economic system they’ve chosen.Rand Paul
when interviewed by John Stossel of Stossel TV.
Rand Paul takes on socialist arguments about Venezuela and Scandinavia.
Senator Bernie Sanders said:
When I talk about democratic socialism, I’m not looking at Venezuela. I’m not looking at Cuba. I’m looking at countries like Denmark and Sweden.
The problem with his statement is that socialist ideas do not govern those countries. Denmark and Sweden are free-market economies. Denmark’s prime minister, when visiting America, refuted Sanders’ claims, saying:
Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy.
Then he added that his country is now a
Successful market economy with much freedom to pursue your dreams and live your life…
A market economy with the freedom to pursue your dreams. That’s not socialism. Word “Freedom” is not part of the socialist vocabulary. It was replaced with the word “Obey.”
