More importantly, they also share relatively high levels of wealth compared with the countries that the people are immigrating from.

So, you admit to a link between liberty and wealth!

You are smarter than I gave you credit for!

It's unfortunate that you do not share my smartness.

I never said there was a link between liberty and wealth.

I said those countries had Liberty and you said they also had wealth.

Are you saying there is no link between the liberty of a people and the wealth of their nation?

If that is your position, then the facts of the world easily render it untenable.

And I stand corrected as to my previous re-estimation of your intellectual skills.

I would suggest that you Google-search such countries as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates for examples of countries with low levels of freedom and high levels of wealth.

Read slowly so that you understand.

Thick aren't you?

Certainly one of us is thick.

You had to go to oil soaked sheikdoms to find wealthy but repressive countries?

and how many people are trying to immigrate to those nations?

Lots and lots and lots and lots of people.

Those nations you are scoffing at have the world's highest immigration rates.

In Qatar, 87 per cent of people are immigrants. In the United Arab Emirates, 70 per cent of the population are immigrants, in Jordan it is 46 per cent and in Saudi Arabia it is 28 per cent.

Compare this with the United States - just 13 per cent.

Even New Zealand is only 14 per cent.

Jesus mate, you could at least do some research before making stupid assertions.
