Border wall boondoggle: even dumber than I thought!
So a gaggle of right-wing racists and faux libertarians want to build a wall on the border. They are going to “secure” the borders. Nice.
So what does securing the borders mean? Well, one taste of it is that the historic right of Americans to cross into Canada or Mexico without a passport is gone. To travel you have to a government document giving you permission to do so. You can see why I think the “libertarians” who support this measure are not really libertarians at all.
And they want to build a big wall on the Mexican border. Also nice. Real nice. (You do know I’m being sarcastic.)
Since the United States was founded (and before) the borders with Canada and Mexico were never “secure”. Never. So the communities developed often without regard of that imaginary line in the dirt.
Now the authoritarians want “secure borders” and that means problems. It doesn’t mean problems for would-be terrorists. After all the 9/11 criminals didn’t cross the border illegally. They came in with government permission. They had passports and the US government said to them: “Welcome to America. Want some flying lessons?”
No one came in through Canada or Mexico. They didn’t cross the borders but flew in and handed over their permission slips to the hall monitors at the airports. They were roaming around killing people because they passed government security and had state permission to be in the US. You would think the government would look at how they approve would-be terrorists to enter the US. Instead Americans are being forced to get passports to spend a few hours shopping in Mexico. (more…)

“And he causes all, both great and small, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark” (Rev.13:16-17)
Earlier we reported that the illegal immigration hysteria is being used to justify the construction of an American gulag, which has been the subject of plans for rounding up large numbers of Americans, not just immigrants.
In addition to SS numbers, as well as walls such as the one Bushling wants on the border with Mexico, and concentration camps, police states are well known for requiring their subjects to carry their papers and produce them on demand.
Immigration is being used as an excuse to implement this same system in America.

In this week’s “radio address” Steve Kubby discusses the essential difference between himself and some of those other presidential candidates:
If you’ve been following the Democratic and Republican debates, you’ve probably noticed by now that the candidates are possessed of an astonishing variety of ideas for running your life. Whether it’s “national ID,” “universal health care,” “protecting children from violence on television” or what have you, these candidates have made it clear that they believe the proper function of government is to care for you from cradle to grave — and police your every action from the time you get out of bed in the morning to the time you crawl back into bed at night … not to mention who you crawl into bed with or what you do there with them.
As a Libertarian, I have a very different view of government’s role. Government’s proper function is to protect your rights, not to run your life. And as a candidate for president, my prospective job would not be to police you — it would be to police your government
