A public health miracle has been engineered in a socialist country. Venezuelans have reportedly lost 19 pounds on the average from the effects of socialism in just one year, according to Fox News. And that figure may be an underweight understatement. Poorer Venezuelans, for instance, reportedly have lost even more than 19 pounds. For a single person to lose 19 pounds in a year is no small feat. For a whole country to have averaged such a loss is simply ... revolutionary.
That must mean Venezuela is on track to become the healthiest country in South America, and maybe the world. Socialist economic policies have shriveled local food supplies to the point of an inevitable ... withering away of the body fat, never mind the state. Granted, losing 19 pounds is a little rough on a seven-pound baby........ this miracle has gone practically unheralded in the liberal media. You would think that such a miracle diet would have shown up as front-page news in the New York Times and other liberal outlets. What could possibly be the problem?.............
