Venezuela is about to write a new constitution and the US has slapped a new set of sanctions on the country. Why? Because the constitution will benefit Venezuela’s 99% at the expense of their 1%. The GOP in the US want to modify/replace our Constitution by constitutional convention to make the US a one party state and prohibit many safety net programs. Our Constitution would then benefit our 1% at the expense of our 99%. GOP approval or disapproval of new constitutions depends on who benefits.
Venezuela has more oil than any other country including Saudi Arabia. We should be helping Venezuela rather than slapping on sanctions. Importing our oil needs from there would require shipping it less distance and mean we could abandon the oil wars in the Middle East.
