    You are correct. Open borders and free travel are a very important part of the Libertarian Party platform. Problem is: the LP is not as vocal about it as they could be. The LP relies heavily on the Independent conservative voters, so they tend to place more of an emphasis on economic freedom. A mistake IMHO. To be fair, the Chairman did issue a statement about the immigrant children and why it is in our best interest to let them stay, but it's not enough. Immigration is a hot issue right now and the LP should be more involved in the national debate.

    Libertarians and Republicans who complain about hispanics voting Democrat frankly have only themselves to blame.

    The OP laments the eventual end of a white majority in the public school system. One implication of that lamentation is that whiteness is better than non-whiteness, for lack of a better word. It is, therefore, rational to perceive racism in the OP.

    What 'we' (meaning you and people like you) need to do is stop refusing to talk about racism when it isn't overt. Something does not have to have "WHITE SUPREMACY" painted over it in bold colors for it to be racist.

    Too many conservatives had no problem with this "melting pot" until their kind of metal started dwindling, now, it's alarming.

    The truth is that the white population in the U.S. will continue to decrease as the Hispanic population will continue to rise. No need to be overly concerned, Mexicans are people too.

    Y'know,(deep sigh) if conservatives don't want to be seen that way, they need to stop acting and legislating and talking in the ways they do. It's not a slur, it's what y'all present. If it's not, true, then you've all got a funny way of showin' it.

    With that I'll leave this thread as there's clearly nothing here but an OP hating so much as to not even consider the opinions of others, the health or well being of others (individually or collectively), the reality of current laws and deportation statistics, the legitimate growth of non-whites including Asians and Blacks simply because of the decrease in childhood births among white women, the fiscally responsible choices of providing reasonable care and school and accommodations, especially since we know they were all pretty much lied to and did not arrive with malice or false intent, until they can go through the aforementioned legal system and their futures determined.


    And you did ask the question. So I was/am only answering what you asked. I did not simply troll in and call you a racist.

I for one would wish for less totalitarianism in my life for the next few decades.
    The Patriot Act was written, passed, and signed into law by Republicans. All these anti-freedom documents that the Tea Party is so distressed about is passing by a landslide in a Republican controlled House. Both parties are equally terrible. The GOP may have some pretty rhetoric, but when it comes down to it they are no better than the Democrats they hate so much.

    Who cares?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

We are all descendents of immigrants, well unless you're native American, and I honestly don't know if mine immigrated legally or not, do you know for sure all your ancestors arrived legally? And even if they did, are you astute enough to recognize that these days legal immigration is a damn sight harder than it was for our ancestors.
    Blaming things on the other side I see. You do realize that the law that Bush made was only meant to be applied to human trafficking right? And no matter how you twist and spin the current influx of illegals have nothing to do with human trafficking. Also I see you fail to note that Obama's EO is, at the very least, partially to blame also.

    Also, yes, I'm 100.00% positive that my ancestors immigrated here legally as they came through Ellis Island.

    And of course its harder today than it was back then. Back then you had a whole continent to populate where vast land tracks were uninhabited, even by NA. Now there isn't a scrap of land that isn't claimed in some form or another. So sorry, we can't have millions of people come here willy nilly. The best form of immigration is when it is regulated. Otherwise it has a negative impact on resources. And no, its not that we don't have resources or have scarce resources. Its that in order to accommodate immigrants those resources need to be built up over time in order for immigrants to not negatively impact the rest of society. Once the resources are built up (which is going on constantly and as such we can allow legal immigrants to come in all the time) then we can let more in.

    You see it as hatred, I see it as common sense to not overburden our society. Of course I'm just referring to resources. You think its hatred because you think that I have something against other races. You are of course wrong. I see it as a resource issue. But you of course won't acknowledge that there are legitimate concerns to not allowing illegal immigration. All you see is race and color.

    Wow! Good thing you aren't a racist.

    The whites, being the majority, has ****ed this country up plenty all by themselves.
