    I’m all for that. The slaves feel proud and happy that their statist “government” takes any amount they want.

    The second you ask somebody on the street if they would part with 10-35% of their pay check, even just quarterly, watch how fast they’ll leave skid-marks.

    Perhaps they would take another position regarding bombs blowing up people and free welfare to those who are well enough to have 5 babies from 3 different dads but won’t walk 3 blocks to go to work.

    In regards to my question earlier. If you invite and allow someone to live on your property, you need to legally have them evicted to get them off it. The fact that someone believe in property rights, NAP, limited government has no bearing on the consequences of their actions. Stop paying property taxes and see what happens to your land. Why would you ever even consider paying property taxes in the first place? If you pay taxes, you have surrendered the rights you speak of.
    Legal evictions take place because you don't own your land. Governments do. You handed it over when you signed certain land records and/or mortgage documents. Same reason property taxes exist. They are rent payments to the owner.

    Once you deny any piece of reality no amount of logic or principles can save you.

    Reality says that people will attempt to impose their beliefs about government on those around them, that means that I have a right to keep certain kinds of people from living around me and imposing their tyrannical beliefs on me, in order to do that I must cooperate with others in my area who share more of my beliefs than those who must be kept away.

    Open borders leads to tyranny and it always will unless libertarianism conquers the world philosophically, libertarianism is far from doing so, the world gets more tyrannical all the time.

    The anarchists are asking a man with a severed artery to remove his tourniquet because it is bad for his circulation.

    You probably should read up on the real history of this country, instead of the spoon-fed version we all received in government school. PAF is correct that the BILL OF RIGHTS is the divinely inspired "Constitution" that RP is referring to. Surely you're not suggesting that RP thinks the 16th amendment, for example, is "divinely inspired"???

    Ron Paul- exact quote:
    The solution to really addressing the problem of illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and the threat of cross-border terrorism is clear: remove the welfare magnet that attracts so many to cross the border illegally, stop the 25 year US war in the Middle East, and end the drug war that incentivizes smugglers to cross the border.

    Well, I start off with saying that it`s a big problem. I don`t like to get involved with the Federal Government very much, but I do think it is a federal responsibility to protect our borders....And that`s why I don`t think our border guards should be sent to Iraq, like we`ve done. I think we need more border guards. But to have the money and the personnel, we have to bring our troops home from Iraq. Ron Paul

    I have no problem with those solutions and in fact support them along with a wall. Which one is more likely to actually occur? A wall, in my opinion.

    The ways Ron is fine with include reducing government power, such as cutting entitlement spending (which on its own is really not strictly about border control anyway, and may or may not have much effect on immigration, legal or illegal). But he's against all ways that involve more government power, and he's against pretty much everything the government now does to do what you euphemistically call controlling the border. He's against a wall. He's against requiring employers to participate in immigration law enforcement. He's against requiring people to have passports to be able to enter the country. He's against deporting illegal immigrants in general. Your position and his are quite different.

    But what does he want those border guards to do? And what does beefing up our borders mean in practice in his proposals?

    It's not about preventing peaceful people from entering and leaving. He doesn't even support requiring people to show a passport to cross our borders into the country.

    This is why you need to get into specifics and vague platitudes about "border security" and "sovereignty" don't mean anything at all until you do.

    When it comes down to the specifics, RP may not call his position one of totally free immigration, but in effect it is.

    Everybody here would prefer to see the dissolution of the welfare state over a border wall... that's not the question, because the dissolution of the welfare state is not currently in the cards. What is in the cards is tens of millions of new Democrat voters who want bigger government and socialism vs. protect the border (easier with a wall).

    Ron Paul makes the argument that the border wall infringes on our freedom.. of course it does, and so there are better options to take care of the problem, they just are not at all realistic in the current political climate.

    So we have to make a choice between two worse options.

    Can you back up what you claim Ron supports?

    If you can (and I doubt it) then he is wrong, the whole world is condemned to the lowest common denominator of tyranny if those who believe in liberty can't keep the tyrants from following them around and imposing tyranny on them wherever they go.

    The problem in a nutshell is that many are talking up that stupid wall because a government employee boasted about it and not the actual problem, as government is famous for doing. In no way, shape or form would government ever advocate individualism, freedom and liberty, certainly not ending welfare. So the solution becomes more government intervention which always reduces freedom and liberty, to the point of “voluntarily” raising donations to assist government growth and control, trampling even more rights, even among so-called liberty advocates on this very forum.

    Here. Coming from a website I imagine you generally agree with in its criticisms of RP.
    https://www.numbersusa.com/content/n...t-we-didnt-mak

    The part about passports is from this quote from Ron Paul's book Liberty Defined:
    Another concern I have with the immigration issue is that the strong border protection proponents are as interested in regulating our right to freely exit the country as they are in preventing illegal entry. No longer can we travel even to Canada or Mexico without a U.S. passport. Our government keeps tabs on our every move, which involves a lot more than looking for drug dealers, illegal immigrants, or stopping a potential terrorist.... A tight border policy to keep certain people out is one thing, but tight border control to limit our ability to leave when we please is something else.

    It's what happens when a "Republican" President is in office. Republicans become just like Democrats, with the only difference being which projects to spend more on and which projects to expand government with. It's very much by design (through perception management agents...ahem) but here we are, on Ron Paul Forums, with people clamoring for more federal spending and more government control of property and population.
