    But inherited wealth is the exact opposite of meritocracy.

    The only surefire way to make US politics reflect the will of the people is proportional representation, And get rid of the senate at the same time, they are anything but proportional in their representation.

    Yes - the Senate is profoundly undemocratic. Wyoming, with less than a million people, gets the same number of Senators as NY, CA, FL, or NY with tens of millions. Nor does it fulfill it's original role, which was to stop the Federal Government from imposing unfunded mandates on the States.

    In fact, the all time record inflation for Venezuela was 1996, when it was north of 120% per year. Venezuela spent the 90s liberalizing the nation in accordance with the Washington Consensus, as did most of South America, which is why neoliberals don't win elections in most South American countries anymore.

    Kind of Ironic that a grocery store where food is not for sale, and is there for the taking, would have an armed guard.

    Dude, Armed Guards are EVERYWHERE in South America. There is a high-end totally private Butcher Shop in Carmelitas in the nice neighborhood, with two AR-15 armed guards outside at all times. The place is about half the size of a 7-11 and only has beef.

    There are dozens of shotgun armed guards in every mall, whether it has high end or low end shops.

    The right-winger's beloved Columbia IS NO DIFFERENT.

    Protests in Venezuela aren't about economics - Venezuela has had double inflation under Harvard Trained US Educated American Buttkissing Neoliberals in the 80s and 90s.

    It's about Power - who rules - the 5%, or the 95%?
