Yawn. People who adhere in essence to one or another political economic philosophy often differ on specific policy positions.


Oh look, you can't refute someone with an economics degree. He's right. You're wrong. You have no argument.

The link to his email is still there... if you ever think of something, you know, worthwhile to say.

I won't hold my breath.

Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

If the world were all free and prosperous like the United States, then I would support open borders.  But it's not.  It's another example of my point that I want solutions that increase the actual liberty in my life and open borders is not that.  Libertarians want intellectual purity in a death pact, and open borders is completely consistent with that


Well, it's a death pact for the Lazy Class. They will be replaced by better workers.

And then those better workers will probably vote for socialism and protectionism because they don't like the idea of being replaced by starving third-worlders in a few generations.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Ocasio has a degree in economics too!

I forget, what was the point, that if you don't favor open borders as a current U.S. policy, you can't be a libertarian?

Here's something that should outrage everyone:

It's not just the size of the pensions, it's that we have to keep paying them to people in prison.

It should outrage everyone, but it should surprise no one.  This is what happens when you pay for things by forcible taxation. Other people's money is too easy to mismanage when the other people have no choice in paying it.

You would be better to start off by saying this is what happens when you allow government unions.

I would say that if not for my knowledge that the problems of public education have little to do with teacher unions.

In the end, you hold to the socialist values.  Nothing destroys performance than lack of accountability.  And that is because of teacher unions.

Again you betray that you're a socialist just trolling a libertarian board
