While perusing the Libertarian Party platform, I came across this jewel under the heading of - [b]Immigration[/b] We hold that human rights should not be denied or abridged on the basis of nationality. We condemn massive roundups of Hispanic Americans and others by the federal government in its hunt for individuals not possessing required government documents. We strongly oppose all measures that punish employers who hire undocumented workers. Such measures repress free enterprise, harass workers, and systematically discourage employers from hiring Hispanics. We welcome all refugees to our country and condemn the efforts of U.S. officials to create a new "Berlin Wall" which would keep them captive. We condemn the U.S. government's policy of barring those refugees from our country and preventing Americans from assisting their passage to help them escape tyranny [b]or improve their economic prospects.[/b] [b]Undocumented non-citizens should not be denied the fundamental freedom to labor and to move about unmolested.[/b] Furthermore, immigration must not be restricted for reasons of race, religion, political creed, age, or sexual preference. [b]We therefore call for the elimination of all restrictions on immigration, the abolition of the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Border Patrol, and a declaration of full amnesty for all people who have entered the country illegally.[/b] We oppose government welfare and resettlement payments to non-citizens just as we oppose government welfare payments to all other persons.

No, I don't have an 'immigration fixation', but I'm wondering who else might! A country that can't define, enforce, and safeguard its borders is no country at all. It is the [i]sine qua non[/i] of soverignty. Screw the jobs for Americans aspect of this, just think of the utter chaos that this sort of idiocy would invite! I suppose with the INS disbanded, the job of documenting these undocumented visitors would fall to what governmental agency?

I don't mind free immigration. However, I do oppose allowing immigrants new to this country the right to VOTE and be citizens. I would require at least something like a 30 year residency period and some sort of stringent testing in order to become a citizen. They do this in Switzerland and France. This idea has been floating around in libertarian circles, even applied to born American citizens. We could have some sort of very strict test about the constitution and government functions to see if say an 18 year old is truly qualified to vote and be a citizen. This would entail testing on such matters as the Bill of Rights, limitations of power by the three branches, history of the foundation of the Republic, etc. I don't think the libertarian party actually favors allowing them to become citizens right off the bat. Amnesty is entirely different. I think people should be able to move freely around our country as long as they do not trespass on private property. themao [chainsawkill]

EricTheHun said: "Screw the jobs for Americans aspect of this" By americans you mean Native American "Indians," of course? What? You don't? In the musical "1776" while debating the matter of slavery for the Declaration Of Independence, John Adams states that "black slaves" are americans because they're here and they're people. The real problem with that most people have with open borders is that they don't want people to "come here have baby's and go on welfare" (a less than a day old quote from my stepmother.) The Libertarian Party is against governmental socialism of all types including welfare. If you get the monthy Libertarian newspaper check out the article on this very topic in it.

Why would we want it? Becuase part of the philosophy, as I understand it, is that every man should be free (there is that pesky f-word again) to market thier labor and services wherever they see fit. If you don't believe that, how much do you believe in freedom?
View Quote
Then let them stay home and market their labor and services in their own country, what's so wrong about that? I believe in the freedom that made our country the envy of the World. They should not assume that they are free to come into someone else's home and do as they please. Let's look and see what the [b]nasty, brutish[/b] Republicans thought in their Party Platform about immigration -
Because free trade is the most powerful force for the kind of development that creates a middle class and offers opportunity at home, the long-term solution for illegal immigration is economic growth in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. In the short run, however, decisive action is needed. We therefore endorse the recommendations of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform: -Restore credibility to enforcement by devoting more resources both to border control and to internal operations. -Reorganize family unification preferences to give priority to spouses and children, rather than extended family members. -Emphasize needed skills in determining eligibility for admission. -Overhaul the failed Labor Certification Program to end the huge delays in matching qualified workers with urgent work. -Reform the Immigration and Naturalization Service by splitting its functions into two agencies, one focusing on enforcement and one exclusively devoted to service.

'Claims'?

And I'm learning more about the Libertarian Party's platform every day now, it seems. I'll say this, that for a party that managed to squeeze a whopping .4% (382,000) votes in the Presidential Election of 2000, they sure pack a wallop. I thought they had gotten about half a million votes, but I was corrected by none other than Harry Browne Hisself on his campaign website. Another kernal of truth that I managed to glean from that website is this -
In four states, Browne also won more votes than the margin of difference between Bush and Gore: Florida (where his 16,401 votes are considerably more than the 500-1,000 votes that separate the Republican and Democrat), New Mexico, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

[b]So, Mr. Imbrolio, do you know what the official position of this Party is on the death penalty?[/b] I mean I went through their official website and found not a hint of their views on a subject that is the single most important controversy in the whole crime and punishment debate in our country.

It has been my limited experience with illegal immigrants, that they are hard working, family oriented, and religious people, who appreciate what we take for granted. Personally, I think they reflect America, the way it oughtta be, more so than most second or third or fourth generation Americans. They don't mind starting at the bottom, doing the dirty jobs, and working their way up the ladder. They work their tails off, and scrimp and save, learn the language, educate themselves, and set out on new careers or on their own in new businesses. Maybe it's different in other parts of the country, like California, but I think that is a reflection on the citizens who set policy, not the immigrants who take advantage of that policy. As far as the death penalty is concerned, I've never seen an official position taken by the LP, and rightly so. It is a very complex legal and moral issue, and it is probably one that our collective conscience should handle. I can see pros and cons to the death penalty, and tend to lean toward the idea that it is better to err on the side of making sure an innocent person is not put to death. Yet, in clear cut cases of cold blooded murder, I won't shed any tears for the deceased perpetrator. I will say that I would trade the death penalty for a ban on abortion. When I debate liberals (commies) on the issue of abortion, they inevitably bring up the death penalty and tell me it is hipocritical to believe in the death penalty and the right to life. I ALWAYS come back with, "I'll trade you, abortion ban, for a ban on executions, right now!" This always reveals their true nature. They never take me up on the offer. They enjoy killing babies. I know the LP is on record as being opposed to gov't involvement on the abortion issue. That is my main conflict with the LP. I believe that gov't eventually HAS to recognize the fact that life begins at conception. All in all, I believe the LP has more to offer more people than any other party. I will continue to vote LP, and may even run next year as a Libertarian, for either a local or state level seat.

No, the interesting concept is that freedom is something that is available to all people the world over.

And if freedom is worth anything to these people, it should be worth dying for, in your homeland, among your kith and kin. But wait, you simply don't realize what these people may be up against! Nonsense, we took on the World's only Superpower at the time! All it took was eight long years of struggle. Under your policy, why should any indigenous people ever resort to a revolution to overthrow a dictatorship that is abusing them, and denying them basic human civil rights? Just get on the bus, Gus, and come to US.

View Quote
Yes, it has definitely been proven that Ted Bundy will never kill young girls again, nor will Timothy McVeigh ever rent another Ryder truck. Not in this World, nor in the Next.[:D] Seriously, though, I never really thought it made a difference whether or not the death penalty actually affected homicide rates. There are so many other factors which must be considered, such as consistency by prosecutors in even asking for the death penalty, plea bargaining where the usually-more-guilty perp is offered a life sentence in exchange for his testimony against the least culpable perp in order to avoid the death penalty, the extreme period of time between the murder and the actual execution (average time almost nine years!), the quality of the murder defendant's legal counsel, and so forth. And even more seriously, there are certain cultural factors that must be taken into account. If there were no legal means to pronounce and render a death sentence for an individual who has committed a particularly shocking murder, then either the victim's family or the citizenry itself might resort to vigilante style justice and murder the criminal prior to trial. The fact that a death penalty exists provides the citizens with a certain measure of confidence in the criminal justice system, even though such ultimate penalty is seldom or ever used. Also, it may even provide the victim with some modicum of protection during the crime itself. It does so by giving an otherwise unarmed citizen a chance to use the spectre of a death penalty to try and persuade the perp [b]not[/b] to kill them and thereby avoid even the possibility of being strapped to a gurney and receiving a lethal injection. The Death Penalty has a certain logical symetry to it. It is a threat to a perpetrator when no other threat would suffice. Such as a lifer in prison with no possible hope of parole, who has no reason [b]not[/b] to kill his cellmate, fellow inmate, or prison guard or employee, absent the threat of an even greater punishment - death. If you were a two-time loser in a state with a 'three strikes you're out' policy, and you were in the midst of an armed robbery of a rural convenience store, wherein you had just tied up one employee and raped and sodomized the other employee, what would be the most likey way for you to avoid apprehension by the authorities and a conviction for a third felony? That's right, kill the only witnesses to the crime and (1) you most likely will never be a suspect in the crime, and (2) if you are arrested, then in any trial on these charges at least the two victims will not be available for testimony. The only imaginable factor that would keep you from murdering the two employees to conceal your crime and avoid prosecution, would be the credible threat of a well-used gurney, electric chair, or gas chamber, facing you somewhere in the not too distant future.
