I'm very happy to see that the people of Texas don't think very much of the border wall.

I've always argued that walls would hinder the American people as much as anybody else.

The idea of a wall (that will no doubt cost us a fortune) is detrimental to the concept of liberty and just won't work. It can only end up being a failed way to treat a symptom of our problems, instead of the cause.

I discuss this in detail with Maria Bartiromo below:

40% drop of illegal immigration since trump took office. The wall will drop that even further. The cartels are suffering financially because we now uphold laws already in place. I agree with a lot that you say Ron Paul especially concerning the continuation of dropping bombs but your reluctance to aggressively control our border is why I cannot rally behind you as a politician. It will pay for itself with the trillions we save when the wall stems the flow in addition to the other root problems.

Build that Wall build that wall lmfao . Can't waint a great number of people that voted for trump that live on the border will be cut off from the river and in a lot of cases be fenced in on the mexico side . BUILD THAT WALL !!!! Theirs goverm folks sucreing the land as we speak. Most trumpsters I talked with before the election were saying trump dosent really meen build a wall now look lmao

First, they take the dinglebop, and they smooth it out with a bunch of schleem. The schleem is then repurposed for later batches. They take the dinglebop, and they push it through the grumbo, where the fleeb is rubbed against it. It's important that the fleeb is rubbed because the fleeb has all of the fleeb juice. Then a schlami shows up, and he rubs it and spits on it. They cut the fleeb. There's several hizards in the way. The blamfs rub against the chumbles. And the ploobis and grumbo are shaved away. That leaves you with a regular, old plumbus.

Open borders are a great idea when there isn't a threat of domestic terrorism...I would love for us to have open borders but we just can't do it right now, there are too many threats. But I do agree that a wall is useless...it would cost billions of dollars a year to maintain and man. How about hire more ICE agents and have them do the job that they were doing before the bush and Obama admins...it worked fine for 200 years...so why is it a problem now? Plus we should make it less expensive and easier to get here but nevertheless we have more important issues at hand than this
Mike Scir
It's all smoke and mirrors. If business owners were fined or imprisoned for hiring illegals the problem would go away virtually overnight. The fact that there is NO such enforcement, there has NEVER been such enforcement, and there is NO plan to implement such enforcement, shows how important gov't and the business community find illegal labor. The US economy is still downsizing, the middle class is under more pressure than ever, illegals who work for lower wages lower the costs of all kinds of goods and services. This is actually helping the middle class a great deal. The REAL problem is that gov't can't be bothered to keep out the bad actors. IDK WTF they are thinking but letting criminals stay here or re-enter is a crime against the American people. But hey, these are the same idiots who keep wasting money on the totally ineffective "war" on drugs that creates a tremendous amount of crime and homelessness, by making people with medical conditions into criminals, by breaking up homes, by depriving youth from in school and after school programs that would help reduce the motivation to form drug and alcohol abuse habits or join violent gangs. Gov't is failing us very badly, and they're rather keep their fat paychecks and fat retirement accounts and do a crappy job and point the finger at the people they are enabling than clean up their act and do a good job. GOV'T is the problem.
Sean Montemurro
Honesty I always thought of the proposed wall as a campaign gimmick Trump never intended to make good on. There are already tunnels under the border that drug cartels and human traffickers use anyway.
Richard Lucas
I say save the billions it would cost to build a Wall. Spend it on C-130 gunships, apaches, and Drones. Put our military on our border and let it be known we won't tolerate illegal entry for any reason. If you try to cross, no matter what the reason. You will be fired upon. Problem solved once and for all.
Erick Radline
Just turn off every freebie and they'll stop coming here. No more welfare, free education, free healthcare, crack down on employers hiring illegals, cut all federal funding to any sanctuary city, and deport
Guy Edward Dso
Not true. Except for aircrafts, it would keep invading armies from the south, of any nation in cahoots with our southern neighbors, from getting vehicles such as tanks and other assault vehicles and other supplies from entering easily. And any penetration of a wall could be treated as an act of war.
Luis Alberto Fernandez Carbonell
This is where Libertarians are like crazy or something. About everywhere else they're right, except on this issue. You don't set up a wall and you will have immigration in large numbers. Immigration that brings with them people who vote a certain way, a way that will turn this country into their country. Prime example, look at California!
Levi Raber
I don't want a wall, I want current laws enforced better. We DO have an illegal immigrant problem and those who say otherwise are burying their heads in the sand or drinking the liberal kool-aid. Do it legally and make a better life for yourself and your family. Do it illegally and get deported (repeat offenders should get harsher punishments for each time they enter illegally). It's not fair or right to those who wait years to come who do it the legal way.
Travis Thompson
That is a shocking poll. I agree with Ron Paul in theory about borders, but realistically, I don't believe we will EVER solve the real problem (ending welfare and minimum wage), so I'm okay with the wall as a way to treat the symptoms. If the democratic party would not sell entitlements to buy votes and just focus on actual policies and sell them on their merits of why they're good for America, maybe things could change.
Roger Price
Mr. Paul, you seem to be oblivious to the enormous costs illegals already place on our healthcare, education and social welfare systems. This doesn't include our prison costs, courts and the criminal element involved in gangs and drugs. We could possibly build numerous walls with that cost, which we pay out yearly with no end in sight. They come here, refuse to learn our language or assimilate. If they can't weed out the employers that hire them and pay them under the table, what is the deterrent to stop them from sneaking across our borders. Sometimes walls DO serve a purpose. Maybe it will take someone close to you being their next victim to open your eyes.
Randall Roberson
Only way a wall would work is if it was 100 feet tall and buried atleast 50 feet down. Even then drug lords and other criminals will find a way. Just need to enforce deportation and incarceration for people here illegally. Not just let them leech of the tax payers. But just to point out these wars the past few presidents have created do more harm to the US then trying to secure our borders. Being that we are one of the most lenient country when it comes to people crossing the border illegally. You'd think all the immigrants that came here legally would stand up against the ones that came here criminally.
Frank Noble
Great points! I'm kinda neutral on the wall myself but we definitely need to make it far less attractive for people to come here illegally and just live off the system.

"Hate Speech" is a Marxist creation to shut down the free speech of one's opponents. "Hate Speech" is subjective. The whole reason for the 1st Amendment was to ensure that everyone was free to say controversial things, and things that the establishment may not approve of. The 1st Amendment is not there so that we're only free to talk about things like the weather. Tyranny seeks to shutdown the freedom to speak. America's Founders wanted to ensure that the mental prisons that Cultural Marxists are trying to erect with so-called "political correctness," never take root in this country.

There's a lot of "left-wing" vs. "right-wing" allegations being thrown around, especially after the latest violence in Charlottesville. We're told that "leftist" Communist groups are pitted against "far-right" Nazi groups. That may well be the case, but it's important to realize that they're all Socialists! The whole left/right stuff can be dropped. They're just different brands of Socialism. It must be remembered that the U.S.S.R. stood for Union of Soviet *Socialist* Republics. Meanwhile, NAZI stood for National *Socialism.* So when you look at the ridiculous "political spectrum" that people often use, both "left-wing" and "right-wing" equal Socialism.

Most people, when they "deposit" their paychecks into a bank, think that they're keeping the money in safe storage. After all, if you stored your money somewhere else, someone could steal it, right? Well, you're actually making a loan to the bank. On the bank's books, they "owe" you the money back. Your money becomes the bank's money, and you become an *unsecured* creditor. Oh you can get "your" money out ... up to a certain point. Ask for too much, and you're automatically flagged as being a possible drug dealer or terrorist. The surveillance state wants to know what you need "your" money for. But what if the bank can't pay you what they "owe" you?

The U.S. Constitution is not very complex. It was designed to "chain down" government. After all, government is the most violent and vicious institution on the planet. Most people have to keep learning that the hard way. The natural tendency of government is to constantly expand its scope. It wants no limitations on the violence that it inflicts, and it surely doesn't want to be "chained down" by anyone or anything. All politicians in the United States swear to uphold the Constitution. Bibles are used ... big hyperbolic speeches ... marching bands ... the whole nine yards. Yet, immediately after the pomp and circumstance of the "swearing in," the U.S. Constitution is almost completely ignored. A vast majority of everything the federal government does is purely unconstitutional. See a nice visual guide for President Trump below:

When it comes to governments, there's an extremely valuable "lifehack" that is always ignored. We're not limited to only learning from our own experiences. If that were the case, we probably wouldn't survive for very long. Fortunately, we can observe, think about, and learn from the experiences of others. When they mess up, we can avoid making the same mistakes. We can choose the better path, and avoid the pain that they're experiencing. Boy, when it comes to government, this lifehack is thrown away. For centuries, the intoxicating idea of Socialism and getting something for nothing, has ruined countless lives and societies. Learning from it is never an option. Proponents are always just a few "tweaks" away from accomplishing their impossible utopia. They just need more control...always more control.

Over 3,000 millionaires have fled Chicago in recent months. This is the largest outflow of wealthy people from any US city right now. But it’s not just millionaires… Every five minutes *someone* leaves Illinois. Wealthy people are often the first to leave a bad situation. They have the means to simply get up and go. And when they do, they take their money and their businesses with them. Leftist statism is taking down this U.S. state. More below:

Stephanie Guthrie Yes, come after the side trying to feed people and give them a roof over their heads, but don't say anything about the other side that increases military budget and corporate tax breaks constantly. I'm sure they're not doing any harm.

Governments have been the biggest murderers in mankind's history. No private gang, club, organization, mafia, or cabal can possibly come close. A major reason for this is the fact that government legally steals its revenues. So there really is no choice for taxpayers in financing government's wars. You may not like government invading Iraq, or Syria, or Libya, but you're paying for it nevertheless. We can't say: "I'm not paying my taxes because I don't want it used to destroy innocent people". What we want, like, or think has no bearing...We're paying. Private institutions have no legal power to steal (unless they join up with the government, which many do). But on their own, private organizations can only get our money if we voluntarily give it to them. If a private institution heads in a direction that you disapprove of, you have the power to withhold your money. You're not forced to finance them against your will. ​What you want, like, and think *does* matter. Read the rest below:
