SOCIALISM: Venezuela To Begin Rationing Electricity For 30 Days

H/T Daily Wire.

This will be America if Crazy Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Occasional-Cortex and Robert Francis O’Rourke get elected and get their way with The Green New Deal.

In an attempt to get a handle on nationwide power outages that have been occurring daily in the country, Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro said the country would begin rationing electricity for the next 30 days.

The Associated Press reported that Maduro made the announcement Sunday evening on national television, claiming the plan would help cut down on the power outages that are leading to days-long cutoffs of water and communications. Maduro also reportedly warned Venezuelans against protesting the 30-day rationing.

Maduro has also asked armed government supporters to help keep the peace during the rationing, according to The Guardian.

Maduro claimed the country is “facing a group of monsters who want to destroy Venezuela,” and called on “revolutionary and patriotic” pro-government groups “to defend the peace of every barrio, of every block.”

Opposition leader Juan Guaido, on the other hand, called on Venezuelans to protest against Maduro’s government for failing “to provide basic services,” the AP reported.

“Guaido says years of government neglect and corruption has left the electrical grid in shambles after years of mismanagement. Maduro alleges U.S.-led sabotage is the cause of the power cuts, although he has not provided clear evidence,” the AP reported.

Venezuela residents began banging pots and pans from their balconies to protest the outages. Those responding to Guaido blocked roads and burned trash until government supporters arrived.
