Critics of socialist President Rousseff celebrate her impeachment on the streets of Sao Paolo.
In my previous post about how far-left policies are sinking South American countries while free-market capitalist policies are allowing them to thrive, I briefly mentioned socialist Brazil as an example of the former. While we’ve all read the stories […]
That, my friends, is a $65,000 cake that the government of Venezuela had made to celebrate the birthday of dead dictator Hugo Chavez. That’s right. While infrastructure collapses and the country’s starving citizens are forced into government-run slave labor, the far-left government spends $65,000 on a huge cake to honor the dead socialist dick-tator […]

Coming out only a year after the famous “1984”, […]
Star Wars + Chaplin’s The Great Dictator + the Inception soundtrack = one very powerful video.
This vid is a few years old, and I’ve discussed it before, but with the way things are going this election cycle, I figured we could all use a little motivation.
