    No it is their Relationship to the Nation as a whole, you know good and well that wanting to naturalize is not an interaction with a private party.

    But that is not what anyone has said here. Unrestricted Immigration is destructive. Controlled Immigration is positive if it is controlled properly.

    You first Juan.

    I am native, I was born here as were the last 7 generations of my family. This our Nation, it belongs to us, not the rest of the world, and not to fools who would piss it way to alien hordes. Do not like it? LEAVE.

    I know its upsetting your lies are not being believed but that is your fault, you told lies that were to grand to be believed, you went to war with reaility and you lost, as if their was any outcome other then that.

    It is everybody's Nation. It was created by immigrants and built by immigrants. My ancestors have been in the US at least as long as the Revolutionary war. We nearly all descend from immigrants. If immigrants are bad, we should all leave. Without immigration, almost none of us would be here and instead living in socialist Europe. If you do not like it here, you are certainly free to live someplace else.

    Sometimes you have to wonder what the real agenda is of dirty , fake libertarians wanting all these dirty immigrants . They can pretend they want a free society where people can travel as they wish but they are not fooling me . What they really want is more tax money collected and being blown to support deadbeats . There will be no trespassers here .
    Do something Danke

    Illegals having already broken 1 law are quite happy to break more, and Liberal government workers are quite happy to break the law and help them cheat.
    And those anchor babies are not the head of the household, their parents get the money and spend it how they wish, in point of fact that is one reason they have the children, to get more welfare.

Nobody in the liberty movement wants the Texas government to reflect El Paso, or the U.S government to reflect southern California.

    Go ahead and make that case if you can. I'm not close minded just dealing with the facts as they are. If some individual illegal alien is pro liberty then yeah I'd prefer him as a neighbor over 90% of Americans but that's a rare bird.
    I'll have to go ahead and deny it.

    Like the Muslims in Europe.

    This makes immigration indistinguishable from invasion.
    What is the correspondence between this theory and the history of the US from say 1850-1900?
    Modern transportation changed things. It is now cheaper, faster and easier to get here.
    Before then the U.S. had an advantage that other nations in history did not, 2 massive oceans to deter immigration, and at that time the population of Mexico was much less, and the rest of the world had not destroyed themselves so horribly with socialism etc. so less people from anywhere wanted to come and those who did were not so un-American.
    Relative the native population, far more immigrants arrived in the period I mentioned than have been arriving in recent decades.

    Yet, none of the horrors you claim follow mass immigration occurred...

    Instead, the US became the richest and powerful country in the history of the world...

    That's beside the point. The important struggle is not between SJWs and the alt-right.

    It's between libertarians and statists (which of course includes both SJWs and the alt-right).

    The reason that the alt-right is a special threat at the moment is that it's subverting libertarianism.

    Libertarians are taking sides statist civil war that they will lose, whoever wins, when they should be fighting against both sides.

    The culture dramatically changed and not for the better, and you ignored the fact that the rest of the world has gotten even worse politically since, choosing to only discuss the relative levels of immigration.

    And just so you know I believe that some controlled immigration can still be positive.

    Lol, who do you think elected Ron Paul in Texas? Who elected Rand Paul in Kentucky. Name one of our liberty champions who was put in there with majority immigrant support, Walter Jones, Massie? Name somebody.

    You know there is no way in hell they would have won in saturated immigrant districts. Because all those districts elect people like Sheila Jackson Lee and Nancy Pelosi. We might have almost no hope now but we will have none if it all goes the way of the way of Mexico.

    As much as I despise the NeoCons you mentioned, I will not support immigration policies that are guaranteed to turn this country into a Democrat paradise where we would have had 2 terms of Gore followed by 2 terms of Obama followed by 2 terms of Hillary, with no liberty movement taking place at all.

    Open borders is a suicidal policy for liberty lovers if you allow the kinds of immigrants we get to have any political influence. coming here to work is one thing, screwing us out of our liberty is another. We shouldn't put up with it.

    Yes, as opposed to zero. And states that are passing constitutional carry and such instead of gun bans and mandatory vaccines and $#@! like that the people the immigrants in California elected are supporting.


    There is not a single political upside to massive immigration at this point. Not one.

    ...



    Even assuming that hispanics are inherently anti-liberty (they aren't), and we could never win them over (we could), I'll gladly trade a theoretical loss of one of our half dozen seats to demographic change in twenty years over 20 more years of Trumpism (which is the main obstacle to libertarianism right now). Let me put it another way: if the GOP spends the next 20 years fighting against immigration, whatever tiny, infinitesimal spark of libertarian sentiment it has will be long dead, and that fight will have been utterly pointless.

    What makes it so is irrelevant and complex, the fact is that everywhere else in the world believes that government is the answer to every problem.
    The lip service that liberty gets in this country requires the government to give us token measures of freedom, these and the lip service can be built upon to improve things.

    Flooding us with those who openly oppose liberty will only make things worse, since perfect is presently beyond our grasp, I will take better rather than worse.

    The same goes for mixed bag Dump vs. Hitlery, Romney, Obummer, etc.

    So, you use a picture of Donald Trump here, and mentioned how the heartland has voted a few posts above this to imply that most Republicans are anti-liberty, but you won't admit that immigrants are?

    I'll gladly trade a theoretical loss of one of our half dozen seats to demographic change in twenty years over 20 more years of Trumpism (which is the main obstacle to libertarianism right now).
    So your strategy is to destroy the GOP as a vehicle to elect liberty candidates, by inviting millions of communists into this country who you will magically convert to libertarianism in large enough numbers to make up for it. I have no problem with that if it would work but it simply won't.

    You have not showed a political upside to more immigrants. You have used the enemy of my enemy is my friend argument. But they are not your friend, they are Hillary Clinton's friend as any quick look at electoral results by demographic will show you. With enough money a liberty candidate can get elected in a Republican district. With all the money in a world a liberty candidate can't get elected in a heavily immigrant Democratic district.

    Of course immigrants are anti-liberty (never said otherwise), but so obviously are the natives.

    So your strategy is to destroy the GOP as a vehicle to elect liberty candidates, by inviting millions of communists into this country who you will magically convert to libertarianism in large enough numbers to make up for it. I have no problem with that if it would work but it simply won't.
    What will destroy (has destroyed?) the GOP as a vehicle for electing liberty candidates (not that it was ever a good one) is the rise of nativism. The only hope is that this particular nativist interloper is so incompetent that he might sink his own movement, but if you fellows have your way, and that movement grows, libertarians might as well run independent in future elections. You're trying to win the general by losing the primary. Imagine where we'd be right now if Ron had been focused on ensuring that the GOP remain competitive against the Dems in the future, rather than fighting for a space within the GOP in the present.

    You have not showed a political upside to more immigrants.
    Again, the point is that their presence/absence has no effect on political outcomes, since they vote the same as natives.

    However, the promotion of nativist politics, does have an effect on political outcomes, as explained.

    But they are not your friend, they are Hillary Clinton's friend as any quick look at electoral results by demographic will show you.
    A quick look at election results will show you that ~99% of voters voterd for Hillary/Trump and are therefore all of our enemies.

    With enough money a liberty candidate can get elected in a Republican district. With all the money in a world a liberty candidate can't get elected in a heavily immigrant Democratic district.
    With enough money anyone can win anywhere, but in reality, the odds of a liberty candidate winning anywhere is very, very small.

    The odds of them winning in a GOP district drop as nativism (a competing ideology) gets stronger.

    They vote worse, and the degree to which they do so rises with the percentage of un-assimilated immigrants.
