I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Good luck with that. Their new cryptocurrency, which the artlcle says is worth US $60, isn't worth the electricity it takes to keep their ledger updated. It's a total scam. It isn't worth $60 at all. Maduro just says it is. The truth is that you can't buy it and if you had some of it, you couldn't sell it because nobody is stupid enough to buy it.

Venezuela is in hyperinflation. Raising the minimum wage won't work for more than maybe a day. Anybody who is in the food and staples business is getting robbed by the government and will go bankrupt sooner rather than later.

Happy talk one day and police shooting people with live ammo the next.

No currency is worth anything if the International Banking Cartel doesn't recognize it and won't float loans to buy it.
