Here's a few thoughts.

Bring the troops home from Afghanistan. We're spending upwards of $ 50 billion a year there. Bring with us the Afghans that will be killed if we leave them behind. Take the $ 50 billion out of the defense budget. That's $ 50 billion less to borrow. Fewer widows and dependents to support, fewer crippled vets. And it ain't just dollars and cents. Why should another American die there?   

How about the private sector raising $ 1 Billion to fund ongoing classes in free market capitalism in 500 cities throughout Central and Latin America.
Maybe throw in some Milton Freeman for good measure. Teach them these principals and they'll get it. Then they'll know how to transform their country
into one they won't want to leave.

At the same time the private sector should raise $ 5 billion to fund ongoing classes in free market capitalism in 500 cities throughout the United States.
I'm not talking about a class in a school. This private organization would rent locations, do some advertising, and be ready to host the first students. If nobody shows up, I'll put on a dress and call myself Alice.

But here's what I think. I think the people would flock to these forums. They want to know how "they" can make their lives better. In America they still can. Dems tell them they can't.

I think you are right. Demosocialists don't care about the welfare of any of these people. They simply want to water-down the basic American citizenry to where their beliefs, morality, and structure is ineffective against socialist progressive policy. That said, there would have to be some type of economic or .... support for the folks who chose to work to bring change within their countries. If the gov't of those countries were hostile to such endeavors, they would squash them before they could gain momentum. Yet, the US is missing a Grand Opportunity right now to undertake such a strategy, one that won't come around again. the by product would be keeping China and Russia and Iran out of our backyard. But, as usual, the US is far too preoccupied with much more important pursuits.

Clipped this quote from Paul Krugman

The liberal economist Paul Krugman recently argued in a column that “whenever you see someone invoking Venezuela as a reason not to consider progressive policy ideas, you know right away that the person in question is uninformed, dishonest, or both.”

Wow, I guess that's me he's talking about. Well Venezuela today I argue is the result of progressive policies. Krugman can slam folks like me if he wants, but I'd like him to explain how progressive policies are not furthering socialism in this country. And if they aren't, are they enhancing free market capitalism?

Thus far Socialism in Venezuela has brought about a record 1698488.00 % inflation rate [Dec. 2018], (tradingeconomics.com/venezuela/inflation-cpi ). That's quite an accomplishment. Perhaps rather than insulting those who cannot see the benefit in such an accomplishment, Mr. Krugman should explain, in detail, with historical facts, what the benefits of such economic policies that result in such an accomplishment are to a nation. Shouldn't be an issue, he is an economist after all. The answer would likely involve some type of, ..' IF it was done correctly...' .

Fact is, Chaves did do it correctly. He followed the recipe exactly. And, as has every socialist experiment since history of such policies began, it failed. Miserably. The problem with Socialism is, as Mrs. Thatcher explained, "... eventually you run out of OPM". Once that happens socialist policies are forced to run on their own merit, or not, as the case may be. In Venezuelas case, not.
