A very telling difference

While discussing "tax inversion", a corporate merger designed to transfer ownership of the newly created merged corporation outside of the United States, allegedly for tax purposes, 3 Boxes of BS has an excellent quote:

I find it more than hypocritical that so many people are interested in securing the borders — IF the company or people are leaving America for a better place or for more money.

A free society, with both economic and civil liberty, has to build a fence to keep people out. A totalitarian society, on the other hand, has to build a fence to keep people in.

Right now, we're in transition from one to the other. People without money are coming in. People with money are leaving.
