The migrants crowding into our country’s southern borders are not coming for capitalism; they are coming because our free enterprise system allows for opportunities not found under the socialist systems they are fleeing.
Free enterprise works well to satisfy the needs and desires of our population, providing that there is not too much government meddling. Unfortunately, government exists to meddle.
Government raises prices by limiting supply, such as by restricting the use of fossil fuels. It’s perhaps well-intentioned, but it’s destructive to the average citizen. As government squeezes the freedom out of free enterprise, the population suffers with scarcity and higher prices.
At least the pressure of immigrants wanting to enter the country will ease.
