Support for Open Borders is a Fundamental Tenet of Libertarianism, and David Brat is Not a Libertarian

I agree. However much I might like to go along with friends on this, many of whom are at the conservative end of the spectrum, I simply cannot. And I don't see how supposed libertarians can be satisfied with such rationalizations. But I guess it is normal that people are inconsistent. In time they may improve as they think it through.

Libertarianism is no political (monopoly) government. Statism is monopoly government.

The only "libertarians" in my book are zero government (no border) individuals. The idea of "open borders" is mini-statism to its core, and not part of my thought process.
