Want to improve the lives of people at the bottom? Then provide economic freedom.

(Cross-post from my other blog, Freedom is Moral.)

“My family and I have succeeded by following the path to freedom. But that path is on the verge of vanishing. What we’re starting to see here in America now is a growth in the size and the scope of government that is now starting to look like the governments that we left behind.”

Here is how to lift people up the economic ladder:

Advancing economic freedom is the best way to improve human well-being, especially those at the bottom.

That’s the path to moving out of poverty and economic success. Check out this video from LIBRE Initiative:

A few more quotes:

Cuban, Venezuela, Mexico. Hispanics leave countries that have been ruined by tyranny to come to American, the land of the free.  They don’t just believe in the cause, they’ve lived it.

And another:

This is a nation where you dictate your destiny. No other nation has fulfilled more dreams and aspirations than this country. To have been born here, I’m just grateful to God for that.

I agree completely. To a radically larger degree than anywhere else on the planet or any other time in history, in the U.S. you can decide where you want to be. I am so thankful to God for having been born in a place where I can choose where I want to go and what I want to do.
