Libertarian ideas on Immigration

July 28, 2016

One of the biggest political issues being discussed by both democrats and republicans is the matter of immigration. How we need to “close the borders” in order to keep out the “terrorists” and “freeloaders”. Well, let me ask you a question.

Do you want to support big government immigration?

Big government immigration is caused by a big government foreign policy that creates terrorists that want harm us. A big government welfare system that attracts all kinds of people looking to live off the government dole, and a big government health care system that forces doctors and hospitals to provide free medical services. A big government education system that cannot teach our children properly. Meanwhile, all of this is being paid for by what YOU pay in income tax.

So, do you think the answer is more government? Do you think that building the great wall of Trump is going to resolve the immigration problem? No. That's simply because Government doesn't work. It never does and it never will. A government that can prevent people from coming in can also prevent people from going out.

So, how do we solve this? Libertarians like myself believe that we must focus on getting government out of all areas where it has made a complete mess in education, healthcare, welfare, and by having a foreign policy that doesn't stick it's nose in everyone's business. Once we achieve this, we can have much better education for our children. Healthcare would be a lot more affordable and much more accessible. There would be no fear of foreigners trying to harm us, and best of all once we repeal the income tax we would be far better off to provide money to private charities that can take much better care of the poor and those who are in need. Then, the only people left that enter our country will be the ones that are looking to build a better life for themselves and their families.
