Why building a border fence is a HORRIBLE idea!

While I agree with Dr. Paul on most issues, I strongly disagree on immigration, and feel he is way out of line with a libertarian solution here.

The border fence is a ridiculous and horrible idea. Here's why:

1. You could build the Great Wall of China on the border and people will still get in here as long as the gov't is offering them a basket of goodies if they can make it to the other side- i.e. schools, hospital care, welfare, etc.

2. There is nothing wrong with immigration. Borders are an illusion. "Illegal immigration" is simply people moving from one location to another. We should not, nor should we want to, use the guns of government to police the situation. It's not libertarian and it's not even humane, it's just turning the guns on others, exactly what we as libertarians are against.

3. If the government builds a gigantic wall, it will eventually be used to keep us from getting out, rather than to keep brown skin folks from getting in.

4. The Canada border is wide open. Should we build a 3,000-mile taxpayer-funded fence up there too?

5. Who's going to pay for all this? Count me out. Will you force me at gunpoint to "pay my taxes" to fund this project?

6. Eminent domain (communism). In order to build the fence, the government will have to steal land from residents. How is this even the slightest bit liberty-promoting? This is pure communism.

The simple solution is to end the welfare-warfare state. No fence will be needed and immigrants will have to make it on their own with no government help or taxpayer funding.

Ron Paul on MSNBC (1-23-08)

Great interview! The interviewer is intelligent and asks some fantastic questions! She even mentioned the documentary America: From Freedom to Fascism, which I highly recommend. Free on google video.

Victory in Iowa!

Last night, Ron Paul took 10% of the vote in the Republican primary caucuses in Iowa. He finished in 5th overall but only a few percentage points behind media darling candidates McCain and Thompson.

I found 10% to be a HUGE victory in a state notorious for bible-thumpers who were going for Huckabee no matter what. Romney had been running ads and traveling around Iowa since January 2007, so he was a lock for 2nd place. The only battle was for 3rd and Paul held his ground and even beat once-favored Rudy Giuliani!

Also, Ron Paul's sucess in Iowa proved that poll numbers are inaccurate. His average poll number in Iowa going into last night's caucus was 7.5%, but he managed 10% of the vote. This is mainly due to polls not calling cell phones, which skews results.

Ron Paul should see an even better number in New Hampshire in 4 days. There are more independent voters in New Hampshire and Huckabee will be far less of a force there. Beyond that, Ron Paul's message of liberty and freedom resonates well in a state who's motto is "Live Free or Die"!

The Ron Paul Revolution continues in New Hampshire on Tuesday, January 8th.
