Venezuela's Tragic Mass Exodus Has Only One Cause: Socialism

Death By Socialism: As millions flee the disaster that is Venezuela, the government is in full denial. This is now the crazy part of socialism, where the unbridled power of socialist elites ignores the unfolding catastrophe before them. It's a preventable tragedy.
The United Nations estimates that at least 2.3 million people have departed Venezuela since 2015, when its current economic and political crisis began. That's roughly equal to about 7% of the country's population.
Venezuela's Vice President Delcy Rodriguez denies any exodus, calling the mass emigration of the oil-rich nation's citizens "normal," and blaming it all on lies by "enemy countries" trying to provoke a military intervention.
Rodriguez's comments didn't come out of the blue. They followed an extraordinary meeting held in Quito, Ecuador, by 11 neighboring countries that are bearing the brunt of Venezuela's massive flood of emigrants. Their request was, given the circumstances, extraordinarily lenient: They asked that, at minimum, Venezuela give valid passports and identity cards to those leaving so that the countries can better identify them.
