If you have completely open borders, illegal immigration will be reduced to zero

The vast majority of immigrants vote for larger government, the welfare state, and greater numbers of benefits. Societies also suffer without a lack of distinct culture that open borders tend to destroy.

Without a restrictive border policy a small government and freer market isn't possible.

If you have no borders, you have no country. If there are no countries, there is no immigration.

If you care about small government a lenient or non existent border policy will lead to a large voting pool that will overturn all of your policies in a generation.

Jose isn't a libertarian. Your ideology is self destructive.

So what's your opinion of Trump becoming the 9th member of the Gang of 8?

So does Trump just want to give Europe to Russia. He wants America to leave NATO, why!?

He said that he might consider leaving if NATO partners did not live up to their requirement of 2% of GDP funding the military, which all NATO partners have agreed to.
Also his latest comments on NATO have been positive, so there are no indications at the moment that he will be withdrawing us from NATO.

Just one question for you, Pablo. Why should America come to your aid, when Spain spends less than 1% on military? money.cnn.com/2016/04/15/news/nato-spending-countries/

What possible advantage would leaving NATO serve us?

I'm against leaving NATO, but I'm also against 23 of the 28 member states not fulfilling their obligations to NATO, yet still expecting us to save their ass.

Evm at 1.16 our military is a joke. We sold most of our tanks. Our other combat vehicles are in poor consitions and a few months ago we ran out of ammmo and our soldiers had to shout BANG BANG during training

That's super sad, not to mention completely ridiculous. Many of the people I've talked to my class has people from 8 European countries tell me that they simply can't afford spending more money on the military than they already are. But Greece is spending 2.46 and they're poor as hell. Russia is having a lot of financial problems and even they are spending 5% of their GDP. If they can spend that much on military while having so many financial issues, then NATO countries can at minimum spend 2%.

Not to excuse them, but junior members of alliances not pulling their weight isn't really something new. History is full of examples of major players bailing out smaller countries who haven't really done anything for them. Usually in the pursuit of their own interests like fighting a common enemy or whatever. Sure it would be great if every NATO member fulfilled their oblibations, but we aren't in a position where isolating them provides us any advantage. Except Turkey. We can throw them out. They're not worth the trouble anymore.

Find the exact quote, please. Because I have my doubt Trump who's foreign policy knowledge comes from "watching the shows" knows even that much about NATO.

"You can’t forget the bills. They have an obligation to make payments. Many NATO nations are not making payments, are not making what they’re supposed to make. That’s a big thing. You can’t say forget that."

I seriously doubt that Afghanistan image is from 2012. Following the fall of the Taliban, women in Afghanistan don't have to wear the full burka.

I was unaware that 1950s movies instigated the Iranian Revolution but thanks for bringing that to my attention.

History is interesting. If you don't care that's fine but it's context for the entire situation in the middle east.
