Hey thanks so much for the debate!!!
"are" good :P
@debateme13 Depends on whether we are using "Open Borders" in the singular or plural. "Open borders" could easily be the same as "open border" but that might create confusion. If you reject the concept of "borders" then it could be comsidered as a single imaginary border.
Open borders and a centralized welfare state cannot exist at the same time.A countries first responsibility is to care for it's citizenry. There will always be the needy. When you offer the fruits of your economy to the entire planet, taking care of your own becomes impossible.
@bobbycesspool did you watch the debate?
