The Disaster of Libertarian Reform of Socialism - February 27, 2024

Prior to my discovery of libertarianism back in the late 1970s, when I was in my late 20s, I had no doubts that I lived in a free society. After all, I had attended 12 years of public (i.e., ...

Warped Terminology on Open Borders - February 20, 2024

Seeing the large number of immigrants illegally entering the United States, proponents of immigration controls decry what they label the "open border" between the United States and Mexico. I live in Virginia. I sometimes enter Maryland by crossing ...


2024 Candidate for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination.

America's decades-long immigration crisis has long been characterized by death, suffering, and the destruction of liberty. That shouldn't surprise anyone. America's system of immigration controls is a socialist system, one that is characterized by the central principle of socialism — central planning. As the libertarian economist Ludwig von Mises pointed out, central planning produces "planned chaos," a term that perfectly describes America's decades-long, ongoing, never-ending deadly and destructive immigration crisis.

America's system of immigration controls, which are fully supported by both Republicans and Democrats, has come with massive death and suffering for immigrants, in the form of suffocation in the backs of tractor-trailers, drowning in the Rio Grande, dying of thirst on lonely deserts in the American Southwest, or from bullets fired by Border Patrol agents.

This socialist system has also come with a brutal immigration police state in the American Southwest, which includes highway checkpoints, roving Border Patrol checkpoints, warrantless trespasses and searches of farms and ranches, violent raids on American businesses, forced deportations, a Berlin Wall that is based on the stealing of private land through eminent domain, immigration prisons, drone surveillance of private activity, and boarding of Greyhound buses to check people's papers. These are the types of things found in communist and other totalitarian regimes.

"Comprehensive immigration reform" is a ridiculous and nonsensical term. Every immigration "reform" ever enacted has only made the situation worse. There is one — and only one — moral and practical solution to America's decades-long, ongoing, never-ending immigration crisis: restore America's heritage of open borders — that is, the free movements of people back and forth across borders, just as we have domestically with state borders.

Abolish the Border Patrol and ICE and all controls on the free movements of people across borders. Leave people free to retain their citizenship. Genuine open borders is the only system that is consistent with the principles of liberty, morality, religion ("Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."), free markets, and a limited-government republic.
