The two libertarian porn providers are the Reason Foundation and the Cato Institute. Libertarians solely agree with everything these two think tanks advocate. For some reason, however, they aren't on the same rail on immigration. Why is that? I think a lot of Neocons are claiming libertarian. It's okay to call yourself a conservative.

If the "Libertarians" on this site are any indication, it's b/c they don't actually understand Libertarian views or how it gets applied in the real world.

Actually, Libertarians support the view that our country is a "sovereign nation" based on the Constitution and that as a nation, we should protect our borders and not interfere in foreign nations.

You can't have open immigration (or even mass immigration of low skilled workers) and have a welfare state. If you want to hand out passports and keep the welfare state hand them out to educated Chinese and Indians.

Bingo. Get rid of all welfare programs and then open the border gates.

A bit off topic but it's important to make:

When did what team you were on matter more than the issues? As if you political party defined your view on everything? It's more about what team you are on than anything else and that is stupid.

I believe in unrestricted legal immigration to this country, we had waves of immigrants come into this country and it's made us a better place.
