Default Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Whether that proposition is true or not, it's clearly the basis for Ron Paul's support of open borders. He doesn't give a flying f**k about Mexicans' attempts to have a better life. he cares about the poor multinational that has the oppressive burden of paying people a living wage.
I thought that Ron Paul does not go along with most of his libertarian buddies when it comes to open borders. This coincides with one of their main theoreticians, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, stance against illegal immigration. Also, he is not pro choice on abortion.

Oh, sorry, I see where you corrected yourself on Paul's immigration stance.
