Bork! RARF! D: D: Well played Shane!
Does that description of his also sound like East and/or Nazi Germany to you? Knowing Browne, I suspect that was part of his point.
And speaking of Harry Browne, more awesomeness from him:
"Immigrants create demand rather than take jobs away
Four worries drive most of the opposition to immigration:
1) JOBS: A new immigrant brings with him a need for products and services-which his job gives him the money to buy. So the immigrant has no net effect on the competition for jobs or the level of wages. Immigrants don’t take jobs away from Americans. They increase the demand for labor and they help meet that demand.
2) WELFARE: The answer is to stop providing taxpayer-supported welfare to anyone-immigrant or citizen.
3) CULTURE: The answer to the culture problem isn’t to keep immigrants out, but to restore the America of free individuals, each responsible and self-governing. Immigrants will embrace our culture more quickly when government stops trying to dissolve it.
4) NOT ENOUGH ROOM: The US is still a country of wide open spaces. America could triple its population without our existing cities growing any faster than they do now.

^This is a special one. It was the bit that helped convince our own Dave to no longer be anti-immigrant. X3
And since we're on the topic of Harry Browne:
"A free country has no issue with people coming and going, but a welfare state is scared to death of every rich person who can get out and every poor person who can get in."— http://shanedk.deviantart.com/journal/How-to-Argue-for-Immigration-Restrictions-555001819
Semi-off topic, but all this hoopla over immigration reminds me of that one classic Simpsons episode where their mayor was caught in a huge spending scandal, and so he used the scapegoat/distraction of illegal immigrants. And it totally worked. As in, his scandal is not brought up for the rest of the episode (or series). Why do I get the impression this kind of thing is happening now; AND has happened many times before?
