RE: Glaring Problems With Open Borders and Squaring the Libertarian Paradox.

Absolutely. But I'll go one step further. Not only are open-borders not compatible with a welfare state they are even less compatible with a warfare state.

The warfare state kills and displaces millions of people who then become economic migrants.

I wish Trump, for example, in the campaign had gone after Hillary for the overthrow of the Honduran government while she was Sec. of State. He could have looked at her and said, "Look I have to build this wall because of the trouble you caused in Honduras. It has spill over effects into Mexico..... very bad."

The warfare state is part of mexico's troubles thanks to the drug War. It all creates economic destruction which pushes people to migrate to where the best opportunities lie.

And it's not compatible with a free society in any way. Great Article.

TOM!! Yet another aspect I forgot to mention, the article was non comprehensive. I am no fan of our meddling in international affairs, of course neither is the Libertarian Party. I never signed up to live in a military state. I empathize with the suffering our troops have endured, but they never should have been there in the first place. If we had clearly defined missions with exit plans I would stand up and applaud at my hockey games. After 12 years I sit silently. Soon I will get the crowd to shout " Bring them HOME, Bring them HOME!". To steal money from my paycheck and give it to the NHL to promote warfare for 12 years straight now, no, no good at all.
The last time I went to Walmart there was a wall of remembrance at the check out. Fatigue is setting in. It was in Walmart yellow and Walmart blue that the fallen were memorialized. Again, I empathize with the suffering our troops have endured but can I buy deodorant without the military state hanging over me?
You surely know what we Libertarians think about drugs, YEE HAW!. I am no hippy but there is one thing we agree with, bring the troops home, close the bases, end all foreign aid, return the money to the workers who earned it, NOW!
