how every political argument about US domestic policy that involves the word Venezuela goes

Person 1: I want to enact policies that are like Sweden!

Person 2: What do you mean?

Person 1: More social services but higher taxes.

Person 2: That’s socialism!

Person 1: Fine, I want socialism. I don’t care what you call it. I just want Scandinavian-style health care and other services even with the higher taxes.

Person 2: Venezuela is socialist and it’s a basket case. Look at what a mess it is right now! 

Person 1: Are you listening? I want to enact policies like Sweden, not Venezuela.

Person 2: Sweden isn’t socialist. Venezuela is socialist. I can’t believe you want America to collapse like Venezuela!
