    So, we learn that Republican-style government corruption is a huge problem in Africa. And just like the Republicans here, they claim political persecution when they get caught, knowing that their corrupt base will back them up.

    The lesson to take from that is that no one should ever ever elect any Repubican anywhere. Sure, there are a few Republicans aren't corrupt and treasonous. However, hoping that we get one that isn't corrupt is a risk that's not worth taking. Do you really want the USA to end up like Africa?

    Uh, no, that ain't it. Nice troll though.

    I was talking about growing their own food not the stone age. Maybe even crops suitable for the region! Better than depending on a other countries and questionable distribution for a daily staple.

    Africa's agriculture was in a very good shape upon independence so I don't know what you mean by "crops suitable for the region". Africa's shortages have political origins.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Africa is a $#@! hole. The people there are good with just getting by. They have no itncentive to innovate, the governments there are corrupt, there is no infrastructure, things are very tribal and education is not valued.

    They are in the process of destroying the only formerly developed country on the continent. BTW that is mainly due to unrestricted immigration into SA.

    Just thought I would throw that in there.

    Is it that they have no incentive to innovate or is it that they don't know how to innovate? For years, it's been run by warlords that have raped and stolen anything of value. Should we abandon it?

    Well, the woman in the video is an entrepreneur so she innovates, but as she complains, she is hampered by over regulation by a huge bureaucracy. Bureaucracy lends itself to corrption. Overregulation in red tape makes it hard to start up new businesses.

    They can innovate. I am personally involved in a non-profit there.

    Africa has a huge hurdle to conquer that the US and Europe never had- its unforgiving geography. Toss in corrupt governments and there you go.

    Actually, African enterprise is often about how to control and/or exploit other Africans, and that goes back time immemorial. From what I read, they got nothin' on anyone else on the planet, and don't let blacks in this country tell you they do. They are among the oldest slavers in the world, and humans are one of their oldest commodities.
    The only way to stop democrats' insane drive to impeach Trump and all their other illicit shenanigan is to force them to pay for it all out of their own pockets when they lose.
