    There is a massive legacy of oligarchism in Honduras but Juan Orlando is not a Socialist by any stretch of imagination nor are people fleeing Honduras because of a controlling regimen he enacted.

    If Socialism is government plying a big part in people's lives then he is a socialist. If not wanting to change the system is a conservative trait then he is a conservative. The commonality between the two is power and prestige, but it's never about the people.

    that's right.

    If it weren't for us there would be no slave trade because there would be no customers.

    So yes, we need to take some responsibility for their woes.
    I assume by we you mean the US.

    Yoiu think every slave went to the US?

    In a remarkably candid Op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times, Keating writes:

    We cannot support open borders for trade but not for people. ... As Ronald Reagan might have put it, it's time to open the doors.

    Keating justifies business's open borders position by arguing that it would "boost economic growth" and that it "would also help address a critical long-term gap in funding for America's two signature entitlement programs: Social Security and Medicare."
    Except it doesn't benefit business at all to have open borders. They need the foreign labor market in order to make cheaper goods, and that goes away with open borders.

    Oh, ok. CB has a better handle on business then the president of the American Bankers Association.
