The future of martial law in the United States of America is the inevitable; the continual down spiral that the country has taken will lead to utter chaos. Such chaos is being played out in Venezuela as of right now. The socialistic government of Venezuela has failed, and it has lead to riots, looting, chaos.
There are countless wounded, countless starving, and countless looting individuals because the government has failed, the country has failed. Just a few years prior Venezuelans would have never imagined the horrors that this crisis has caused in their backyard. However, the most radical, yet true, fact is that Venezuela has more “wealth” than most of the entire world. According to the CIA, Venezuela has more oil reserves than Saudi Arabia.
Which leaves the question, why is a “wealthy” nation in chaos? The government of Venezuela just declared a 60-day state of emergency in a desperate attempt to restore order, but most people don’t anticipate that it will do much good. In 2015, Venezuela’s economy contracted by 5.7 percent, and it is projected that in 2016 their economy will contract by roughly another 8 percent. On top of that, the official inflation rate in Venezuela will be somewhere around 720 percent this year and 2,200 percent next year.
The prices of food, water, electricity and other necessities just keep rising; and every penny that is earned goes directly into affording those much-needed necessities. All while, the gangs rule the streets; looting for what they need, and injuring or killing whoever gets in their way. It is total lawlessness, and such is what Americans can expect in the near future when the US dollar finally dies.
The looting officially began when Venezuela ran out of money to print more money. At that point the best one could do merely to step back and watch as local society and civilization turned on itself, unleashing what would ultimately turn into Venezuela’s own, sad apocalypse.

As AgainstCronyCapitalism added, this is a country with more oil than Saudi Arabia, and the government has stolen all the money and now they bottleneck peaceful protesters and threaten them with bombs (or haul them to prison and torture them).
Now, in the latest shocking development, Venezuela saw a new wave of looting this week that resulted in at least two deaths, countless wounded, and millions of dollars in losses and damages. According to Panampost, on Wednesday morning, a crowd sacked the Maracay Wholesale Market in the central region of Venezuela. According to the testimonies of merchants, the endless food lines that Venezuelans have been enduring to do groceries could not be organized that day.
The people are down and out because of a rogue thieving government hell bent on gaining all the wealth of the common man; sound familiar?
