>>>Sad part is, it’s a very rich part of the world in natural resources. The only thing standing in the way of good people doing well is.... once again... government.
Very true. Whenever I hear someone claim that economies require lots of natural resources in order to thrive, I always ask them to compare poor Argentina which is rich in almost every possible kind of natural resource, to rich Hong Kong (even after 1997) which has almost nothing.

How many times have they been through this? Talk about slow learners! How many more time do they have to repeat this before they learn that the results are not going to be different?
It will be 10x worse, and 10x more violent in the US due to multiculturalism.
Amen, and very well said.
“Sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money.”
