Ernest Hancock on the Immigration issue:
My most recent posting about Immigration on the pages of FreedomsPhoenix
At the bottom of this article are links to MP3s of radio shows that have me debating the issue
fully with well known leaders on both sides of the issue (Bumper Hornberger to
Rep. (R) Russell Pearce & Frosty Wooldridge).
For those of you that care what my position
is, you can listen to any one of these shows and make up your own mind. The fact
that I welcome other opinions, so that each side is fully informed of other
opinions and the motivations behind them is obvious. What is not obvious is the
source of the fear of opposing opinions. By looking at the “Immigration” category of FreedomsPhoenix https://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Standard-Page.htm?Page=00015
you will find that Frosty writes a lot, and his
position is Closed Borders.
There are many other entries that provide another
view, but of the 130+ categories on the site I have many others that interest me more. Anyone is welcome to publish their views on FreedomsPhoenix with few
requirements, but I can’t make people care enough to read them. The media hype on the border issue is
reflected in the traffic on FreedomsPhoenix in spurts. Immigration problems are rapidly being seen as more of a symptom than a source of a much larger problem,... "government". Frosty's increasing intensity on the issue is due to his seeing the same trend of apathy on the issue of Immigration as I, and is attempting to motivate the people into action,... let him. Time and knowledge have a way of demonstrating what is the best course of action for a free society.
But Fear closes down the higher thinking we libertarians count on to attain a better future supportive of liberty. No Fear. Frosty is a good guy on a journey with a lot of other people and I have no problem helping them find their way to liberty. Not all of them will get to where we would like, but many will. And our willingness to listen encourages them to do the same. No Fear.
Frosty has his fans and he makes
use of his editorial ability here,… a lot. But that is best countered by
opposing views, not censorship. I have made my position very clear on the issue
of Immigration but I don’t feel as though I am in competition with Frosty or
have a need to point out where I think he is wrong on a daily basis. Time will
take care of that for me. But he WILL get his say.
have had Frosty on the air with me and have had several face to face
conversations. He has debated Future of Freedom Foundation's Bumper Hornberger on the immigration issue at
length in person at last year’s Freedom Summit. And I know he knows what my
position is and that of many others that do not support the idea that we need a
government permission slip to engage in any relationship with another human
for those that really care about such things, here is a wealth of information
on the subject and how a no-compromise hard core libertarian goes toe to toe
with the leaders in the State of Arizona and around the country on the issue of
what I suspect is that there is something else bothering those that oppose editorials on FreedomsPhoenix that they do not support. The ability to comment immediately is there. The ability to write their own daily column on any subject that interest them is available. So what is the real goal of those that would limit speech. Frosty's columns are of little interest to me since I understand his position. I don't agree but I find no reason to ban his opinion from the site. None of us have to read his material, forward it or agree with it, but as long as he is willing to put forth the effort to share an opinion held by 10's of millions here in this country, I WILL allow him to do so on FreedomsPhoenix. If I didn't, then what credibility would we have?
Opponents of Frosty being published on FreedomsPhoenix (only 2 that I know of out of the many thousands of subscribers,.. but it is a good opportunity for me to vent :) likely have other motivations in their effort to oppose FreedomsPhoenix editorial policies. Maybe they'll share them with us on the pages. I'm certain that I will be at least as supportive of articles on FreedomsPhoenix in support of my own philosophy as I am of those in opposition.
Author of a book on the evils of Immigration, Frosty shares with us his
thoughts on how more people in America
(certainly of another foreign cuilture) will negatively effect our way of life
on many levels.
