No amount of government meddling or control can prevent natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey, but it can certainly create man-made disasters and hell like in Venezuela, said Mark Levin.

On a Wednesday night segment of his national radio program, the Conservative Review editor-in-chief delved into statists' predictable calls to expand the size and scope of government in the wake of Hurricane Harvey's destruction.

Contrary to the claims addressed in the radio segment, Levin pointed to the fact that if our federal government spending isn’t reigned in, it will soon become uncontrollable and quickly become a disaster on an even larger scale than the natural ones witnessed.

Levin relayed a tragic story of a teenage prostitute in Venezuela, a country where socialist central planning has led millions into unspeakable poverty and starvation.

“This is a man-made disaster in Venezuela,” Levin explained, comparing and contrasting the scenes from Houston with those in Caracas. "And it will be a man-made disaster in the United States” if something does not change.
