All of My Life I Have Been Lied To...

TEN YEARS AFTER THE FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL, A GROUP OF RUSSIAN OFFICERS VISITED THE U.S. THEY TOOK A TOUR OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY…

“The author couldn’t help but notice the rather solemn demeanor of one of the Russian officers…this Russian gestured around him. “All of my life, I have been lied to,” he said…”This thing,” the Russian gestured again to the wonder all around him: the pleasant homes; the constant flow of clean water; the dependable sources of energy; the cars; the free press; the ability of the citizens to gather and speak and write what they wanted; the fact that one did not need to be someone of know someone in order to succeed; the fact that Americans did not fear a knock on the door at night…” —Chris and Ted Stewart

More Proof Why Capitalism is Humane and Socialism Kills and Impoverishes the Masses

SINGAPORE’S FREE MARKET CAPITALISM VS. INDONESIA’S SOCIALISM

These two countries are within a few miles of each other. In fact, you can see the other’s islands from the shores of each country. But the two countries could not be more different. Singapore engages in free market capitalism and their Economic Freedom Rank is 2nd in the world. At the time of this writing they are the 3rd richest country in the world per capita. Indonesia, on the other hand, is governed by a socialist government. Indonesia’s Economic Freedom Rank is 99th in the world and they are the 3rd poorest country in Asia. Imagine having to live in the poverty of Indonesia and witness from your shores Singapore’s prosperity on a daily basis. How frustrating to think that you were born just 28 miles too far from that free market capitalism.

Government's Job is to Protect Your Values, Not to Dictate Your Values

GOVERNMENT’S JOB IS NOT TO DICTATE YOUR VALUES

“…but to protect them. In a free country, you choose values and then use your own money as a tool to achieve them. But a value-rigged tax policy reverses this cause and effect - it uses your money against you, bribing you with tax breaks that let you keep some of your earning in exchange for abandoning your preferred values.” -Yaron Brook

If We Truly Valued Education, We Would Teach Financial Literacy

IF WE TRULY VALUED EDUCATION…

“We would teach people financial literacy because we would recognize that money is a central and important aspect of our existence…Why continue advocating a [school] system that is designed to create cogs instead of freethinkers and a system designed to suppress financial knowledge rather than create financially literate people who can prosper in a capitalist system?” -Robert Kiyosaki

Food Shortages and Violent Crime Are Always the End Result of Socialism

THE FULL-BLOWN ECONOMIC COLLAPSE THAT IS HAPPENING IN VENEZUELA RIGHT NOW IS A PREVIEW OF AMERICA’S NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE

“Just a few years ago, most Venezuelans could never have imagined that food shortages would become so severe that people would literally hunt dogs and cats for food…this is now taking place. This is what the endgame of socialism looks like. When an all-powerful government is elevated far above all other institutions in society and radical leftists are given the keys to the kingdom…food shortages, looting and rampant violent crime…breakdown of basic social services…Institutional destruction is also a legacy of the Obama regime.” -Michael Snyder

The Welfare Experiment Has Been a Huge Failure

A SICK SYSTEM: “Since people are not decent and compassionate enough to assist their deserving fellows in distress, we must expect them to somehow elect politicians who are more decent and compassionate than they are. Those politicians will then take money from them under threat of imprisonment, launder it through an expensive bureaucracy, and spend what’s left not to actually solve the [poverty] problem but to manage it into perpetuity for endless dependency, demagoguery and political gain.” - Lawrence W. Reed

Venezuela's Socialism vs. Chile's Free Market Capitalism

Chile has a system with more free market capitalism than any Latin American country…and is the most prosperous in Latin America. Their economic freedom rank is number 7 in the world.

Then you look at Venezuela, which is pure socialism. They rank 176th in the economic freedom scale and they are experiencing economic collapse, countrywide hunger, widespread illnesses, looting, violent crime, etc…

Socialism always leads to running out of other people’s money and leaving everyone destitute. Always. It cannot end any other way.
