Okay Libertarians… apparently we need to get something straight.
I’m annoyed that I have to talk about this with people whom I consider ideological compatriots. The only thing I can think of is Leftists have invaded the Libertarian Party. Maybe you all should consider some borders?
Anyway… on to what you should already know;
Ideologically, Us Libertarians Love the concept of ‘Open Borders’. Judging by the latest rhetoric from ‘leader’ of the Libertarian Party it appears Libertarians are all in agreement, to a point. It happens to be a very pointy point. A Sharp Pointy, Pointy Point. A Point best not fallen upon.
There can be no Libertarian type ‘Open Borders’ so long as there’s a Welfare State… ‘Safety Net’… or whatever Socialists want to call it to make the redistribution of wealth less offensive. Welcome to the United States of America.
First You permanently get rid of the Welfare State and then, and only then, can we talk about ‘Open Borders’.

I hope this letter finds you well.
I agree with you that everyone world over should read, and more importantly make an effort to understand, the U.S. Constitution. Having studied it myself, I agree with your plea and suggest we begin with every U.S. Lawyer.
I would add that particular attention should be paid to the first ten amendments otherwise known as The Bill of Rights… A Bill of Inalienable Rights… The Rights possessed by U.S. Citizens which cannot be taken away, ever, without destroying the Founding Document you waved in your hand.
It was indeed the correct venue to make such a plea, I can think of none better.
I Commend your Son’s service in protecting that very Document which your preferred Ideology see’s as limiting all of the things you want to do for/to us.
I’m incredibly sorry your son lost his life in his principled endeavor.
I am grateful there exist people like your son who do those things the rest of us are either unwilling, unable, or have done so already, in the defense of the Greatest Experiment in Self Governance the World has Ever Known.
He was clearly a great man… and your personal loss cannot be fully understood by either candidate for president. Neither of them have experienced such pain.
If your Son’s sacrifice is not to be in vain, Genuinely Understanding American Exceptionalism and Enlightenment Governing Theory is desperately needed by your audience. But as you made clear, it starts with reading the Document, and only then can anyone begin to comprehend your son’s sacrifice for our Freedom.
You have chosen a difficult quest…
I promote your efforts.

Democrat Rep. Janice Hahn spreads myth about Statue of Liberty to defend open borders
Posted at 9:51 am on August 2, 2014 by Twitchy Staff
Rep. Janice Hahn, D-Calif., is upset that the House passed two measures to speed up the deportation of Central Americans who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border.
In the tweet at the top of this post, she claims that the U.S. has abandoned a “promise” that was etched onto the Statue of Liberty. She’s talking about the poem The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus, which has come to symbolize the Statue of Liberty even though that was not the intent of those who built the statue.
As Roberto Suro, a professor at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication, noted in 2009, France gave the Statue of Liberty to the U.S. to commemorate the Revolutionary War. Those of you who learned history before the advent of Common Core may recall that France assisted the colonies in that war, and that the American Revolution served as an inspiration for the French Revolution. At the time, France’s gift had nothing to do with allowing Honduran gangbangers to enter the country illegally.
The bronze plaque with Lazarus’ poem was a gift from Georgina Schuyler, a New York philanthropist. It was installed inside a stairway within the pedestal beneath the statue itself in 1903, almost two decades after the statue opened. As Suro notes, “There was no ceremony when it was placed on a stairway landing inside the pedestal. For decades it went largely unnoticed, a memorial to a writer and reformer who died young rather than a defining inscription for the statue.”
Who decided to install the Lazarus plaque? Congress? The President? No. The War Department had authority over the statue between 1901 and 1932. The decision to install the poem in the statue’s pedestal was not a “promise” that “we as a nation” made. Rather, it was a decision made by an unknown War Department bureaucrat who neither spoke for the American people nor had any authority over U.S. immigration policy.
Do you think the racists at La Raza give a crap about what the Statue of Liberty stands for? Does Emma say anything about Reconquista?
Clearly the Progressive Socialists do not. At least not Democrat Socialists like Janice Hahn.
