For advocates of closed bordersSubmitted by lpviper on Wed, 10/15/2008 - 22:55
How can one hold such a position and consider one's self an advocate of 'liberty?' These people were born on a different plot of land from the one you were, and they are somehow magically lesser than you or I? Nonsense! If you don't want a cheap home built with cheap labor, fine! Don't buy one like that! But who are YOU to tell me I can't make that choice, because these people are 'illegal?' How is a person 'illegal?' And to those who say that 'illegals' threaten 'our sovereignty'; Excuse me, sir, I am soveriegn, you are sovereign, the idea that a corporation (which is what the US Government is) could be a soveriegn is not only logically inconsistent, but flies in the face of what this government was founded on. Look at your Constitution and see what it says about immigration. Probably about as much as it says about the federal government having the right to control what SOVEREIGNS put into their bodies, or where and in what manner SOVEREIGNS travel, or in what particular spot SOVEREIGNS are standing when they protest the overarching madness that is this country nowadays. Believe me, you are either for freedom, or you aren't. The 'brown people' deserve the same freedoms you have, for the same reason that you do, because they are men like we are. Not because they were born in a particular spot or have a certain color of skin or a certain amount of money. Government institutions and restrictions operate outside the market. If such an institution (gov school or bureaucracy or a governmentally protected labor union) keeps the cost of a commodity (in this case, labor) too high, then the problem will spread to other areas of the market. The correct market signals will not be given and price distortions will result. Anyone who feels that they have a right to their high paying job, even when the market cannot sustain such activity, and uses the force of government to keep their position and their inflated pay, is ENSLAVING me. OK?? I find this whole 'borders' thing to be so disgustingly bigoted.
