Jacob Hornberger, another Libertarian candidate, has a section of his website calling for the U.S. to “open the borders.” Hornberger’s campaign features a call to “abolish the Border Patrol and [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and all controls on the free movements of people across borders.” Hornberger claims, “Genuine open borders is the only system that is consistent with the principles of liberty, morality, religion (‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.’), free markets, and a limited-government republic.” 

Hornberger’s platform also calls for the repealing of Social Security, Medicare and drug laws as well as the abolition of the Federal Reserve and the return to “a monetary system based on gold coins and silver coins.” Federal agencies he is seeking to abolish include the CIA, the FBI and the National Security Agency. Additionally, Hornberger wants to pardon “non-violent drug-war offenders” in addition to whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.

On LGBT issues, Hornberger believes that efforts to “punish vendors who choose not to sell their products to people because of their sexual orientation” are misguided and that “private business owners have the right to sell their products to whomever they choose.”
