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. Read More
Our government has indulged in incredible financial and economic irresponsibility. They have made a series of disastrous monetary decisions. So, how can you rely on the very people who are breaking our system to help you?

The modern day we live in, with the unimaginable blessings of freedom and liberty, is the aberration, not the norm. Further, simply because freedom exists today does not guarantee this gift will survive for future generations... Read More
Rest in peace Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.
Modern day Singapore would not exist without this extraordinary man. Just like America's founding fathers, he was willing to do some of the hard things that make a nation prosperous. Free markets, capitalism, anti-welfare, and no minimum wage helped Singapore prosper. Despite the lack of individual liberty for Singaporeans, the man understood free markets and capitalism and his economic policies were the reason he was able to turn Singapore from a third world country into a first world country in a matter of a few decades. He elevated the lifestyles of all Singaporeans significantly. Read More
