BTW, according to the Heritage Foundation's Index of Economic Freedom, there are 10 countries with scores at or above those of the United States. Would you support free migration between those countries and the U.S.?

No. Why would I assume that economic freedom equates to a sharing of the cultural background that produces vibrant and free societies? Singapore, for example, is a one-party state with little actual political freedom; ferinstance, it has no tradition of free speech and dismisses it as a 'disharmonious' Western value. They're right. It *is* a disharmonious Western value, and that's one reason why the West has been dominant over the East since Alexander.

Alright, so what countries, if any _would_ you support free migration between the U.S.?

None. I don't want angry women-hating, free-speech-hating, Muslims emigrating to Britain and then to here anymore than I want them coming here directly.
