Venezuela is mired in a series of shortages of all kinds. I don't know which shortage is more disastrous than the other; problems with public telephone networks, problems with the water supply through the urban aqueduct, electrical problems... it comes and goes the whole day as many times as it pleases.

There's also the problem with the supply of gas, not to mention the supply of gasoline.

I don't even know how we are living. At present, the gasoline distribution service at the pumps is not ideal. It's the guarantors, the public servants such as the guard and the police, who are abusing their power in these gas stations. Apart from supplying themselves in the places that belong to them, they also source in all the other places that do not belong to them. Vehicles are withdrawn in queues to supply gasoline to the common citizen and they make them back down to abuse their positions. They take the gasoline that corresponds to 10 or more vehicles in line.

Nobody respects these servers anymore anywhere in the country. They are the most despicable, because they carry the permission to attack and subdue people who want to claim their rights.

An example of helplessness is me, trying to write this article since morning. First the internet fails, then the power goes out, after the power came back the internet said "goodbye" for a couple of hours. Don't you think this is something that can make anyone insane? Well no, we get so used to these bad things that it's worse to get impatient waiting for them to be fixed.

 This is my first post today. I think I'll finish before 6pm. A storm is coming and the electricity and internet go out when that starts.

I mean by this that Venezuela is a beautiful country... A beautiful contry that had all of its benefits taken away by the unscrupulous people than live in it.

I don't know what else they'll come up with now. But surely whatever they invent will not make any difference, with all this display of corruption that has been developing for some years, nothing seems to work.

Go out to the streets to protest? It has already been tried. Whenever someone goes out there with that idea there are orders to dissolve the crowds in any possible way. The authorities come out with more firepower and start shooting people.

My patience is already on the brink. I just want my goals here to be completed and then I'll have to do what I never wanted to do. I don't have any other alternative. I have one more responsibility to fulfill and then we will leave this country.

With my heart in my mouth and tears on my cheeks, there are no more ways out.

And they kept saying Filipinos have it bad. I beg to differ. We never had much problem with gas and power shortages and internet like that. It's just the numbskull leaders but your case is far worse. I also question how you guys are surviving but hopefully soon you guys can move away and find a more peaceful place to live in

I still have two years left while my son graduates. TO GO to another place where he can work with dignity. Meanwhile to keep waiting. I have no way out.

You better go after your passports. I asked you before about them. I assume your son has the same rights as you, with thank to your parents?

Woah, it seems you're in a bit of a fix there. My country is in a really bad shape as well, but we'd never had issues with the Internet,]. That's terrible, it's like disconnecting you from the rest of the world.

In my country, it's security that's the issue. A special unit of the police, the State Anti Robbery Sqaud, has been illegally arresting young people and extorting money from them or most times, killing them.

We also have that here. There's everything here. This was such a special country, it has so many resources, so many wonders of nature. But the bad guys got it, they take all the good stuff and do as much bad as they can.

They take it because no one stops them and they take therefore what they want to enrich themselves. How about you, your son? Can you protect yourself? Do you have a gun?

The State Anti Robbery Squad?

Sorry, it's the Special Anti Robbery squad. Funny enough, they do not arrest robbers. All you hear is extortion (they even carry POS machines so they can automatically debit your cards) and also extrajudicial killings.

If you ask me it's time to leave, it was longer ago. I know how it is without water, power, internet. I will never get used to it because I have had better, way better. If your health gives up on you it's high time and hopefully not to late. It sounds to me to all patience and prayers comes an end and there are limits...civil war won't be far. Keep in mind your son can study everywhere.
