Did you read his article before commenting? His whole article is based on the premise of gov't restricted immigration.

Sorry Bill I wasn't specific enough for you -- Newton's law of universal gravitation.

Buck O, classic ad hominem attack. Very liberal thing for you to do. Oh, and "left wingers" rarely support free-markets and capitalism. If they do, it is only with the existence of a very strong State. That is not I, for I support capitalism with a very small State.

Yes, and those theories can be proven conclusively and objectively. No one questions the law of gravity because it can be objectively tested and proven. You can't do that with economics because economics is about human behavior, which is rarely consistent or rational.

We state they are laws, and they represent the closest thing to laws economics has, but they're not actually laws like the laws surrounding physical sciences. http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2013/04/the-laws-of-economics-dont-exist/274901/

Marek -- hence my statement, "build a wall around the welfare state, not the country", though I can't take credit for it myself, I believe Ron Paul stated that.
