“Our porous border” and other myths of Trump’s increasingly popular wall mania

by Nick Gillespie

“[T]he number of people caught trying to enter the country illegally between checkpoints on the Southern border is one-fourth of what it was in 2000 …. And yet respectable leading Republicans ... such as Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) insist, like the president, that we are suddenly so deep in crisis nothing short of a wall can fix it.” (01/13/19)

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.

Mastodon is a decentralized "federation" of community-run Mastodon servers which are part of an even greater federation called "the Fediverse". No matter how many users are on the instance you join, you can still follow and interact with the millions of users on any other instance throughout the Fediverse!

This is a primarily English-speaking instance, although everyone is welcome.
