José Manuel González, The Deputy Of The National Assembly for The State of Guárico, Wants To Replace Nicolás Maduro

In Venezuela Hospitals are out of medicine, grocery stores are out of food, gangs are fighting in the streets, and the general population of the oil-rich country is starving. Men like the Deputy of the National Assembly for the state of Guárico, José Manuel González, have been lobbying for change over the last year, but the government isn’t listening. The country of Venezuela is collapsing, and González is trying everything in his power to stop it.

At this point, González, the former President of Fedecamaras, and an agricultural entrepreneur thinks the best way to solve his country’s dire issues is to get a national referendum in place that replaces the incompetent President, Nicolás Maduro. González is not alone in his assessment. Thousands of people have signed a petition to remove the Chavez hand-picked president from office. The government opposition is growing, and González is leading the charge in his state and the other agricultural states in Venezuela.

González explained Venezuela problems recently when he was interviewed by the press. González said there was an economic illusion in place that concealed the excessive borrowing, and the political corruption that was going on when the price of oil was $100 a barrel. Venezuela has the richest oil reserves in the world, but Venezuelan oil is the thick variety that is expensive to refine. The United States was Venezuela’s biggest customer before the bottom fell out of the oil market, and the Maduro government was too blind and too stubborn to compensate for the lost business, according to González.

Venezuela has been forced to import oil from other countries in order to sell their special blend. The government is mixing Venezuelan oil with lighter oil from the U.S., and other countries and Maduro believes that is the ticket out of the national economic disaster that is changing the face of the country.

There isn’t a solid plan in place that can bring the country back from the brink of disaster, according to González. The Maduro agricultural plan is not working either, and his state is experiencing unprecedented violence because of the food shortage. Normal citizens are becoming criminals in order to eat.

Diversant: Expanding the IT World

Today, the IT world is a place that is hopping and full of jobs and opportunities for the right people with the right work ethic. I’m talking about people that work around the clock, 24/7, and aren’t afraid to put in a little extra to perform a job well done. As a matter of fact, Diversant has been aiding IT professionals for over twenty years. It is like building a team, and when you build a team, you need the right people in charge. They know how to find the right people and when they see them, they know it. They have a certain aura about them that just stands out from everyone else.

Today, no matter who you are, chances are that you have an impressive resume filled with great colleges, education, and experience. However, one thing that Diversant looks for is people that have great people skills. You can have all of the degrees in the world, but if you don’t know how to talk to people and don’t know how to interact with them, you won’t get very far in life. Sometimes, it can be taught to you and sometimes you need to learn it on your own. With Diversant, they will teach you how it is done, show you the ropes, and get you ready.

One of the best at doing that is John Goullet. This is a real man’s man and someone with a boatload of knowledge and wisdom.

He has a policy where he likes to believe that people who listen instead of talking learn a lot more.

John knows how to put a staff together and what to look for, as he has a great eye for talent. That is why he has been as successful as he has been for so long and why he will be in the IT world for a long time.

Thor Halvorssen Dismantles Socialism

Thor Halvorssen speaks about the dangers of blindly accepting socialist policies in an interview with Trish Reagan for Fox Business News. The segment features questions about what types of concerns should be associated with the type of democratic socialist agenda promoted by Bernie Sanders, a U.S. Senator who is running for the Democratic Party presidential nomination. While the Sanders’ campaign has been openly discussing socialist reforms that the senator thinks could help with the income inequality gap and take the pressure of the current unemployment rates, there are serious questions that must be addressed about some unintended consequences of these policies.


Halvorssen is the current president of the Human Rights Foundation, which is based out of New York and fights for the protection of human rights all around the globe. From this perspective, he is particularly well-suited to answer questions about how socialist policies can go right along with authoritarian regimes and the violation of basic human rights. Halvorssen said that this is his main concern with socialism. Because socialism naturally involves the government exercising control over resources and private property, it leads to the government hoarding too much power in some circumstances. This is most likely to occur when there are not backstops against the government taking away the people’s rights and property.


When the government does overstep its bonds, according to Halvorssen, there is a potential for serious resource shortages, which can adversely affect the daily lives of citizens. Thor Halvorssen points to Venezuela as a country that has survived socialist policies at the hands of an authoritarian regime. According to Huffington Post, the people in that country are essentially powerless now to fight back against the government and to try to regain control of their own property and resources. This has resulted in starvation, poverty and unemployment for the masses in Venezuela. In essence, by adopting socialist policies, the government of Venezuela opened up a whole different can of worms that has decimated the country as a whole. Halvorssen does not want to see the same scenario play out in the U.S., or any other country in the world for that matter.
