Put him on a fishing boat until election day.

was that some kind of ironic libertarian line of debate?

What a perfect state to emulate.

He's running a horrible campaign. He needs to take a few notes from the way Rand is running his campaign.

Not sure about the wisdom of bringing that place up . Having been on that border , I will say it was pretty secure .

10-18-2010, 04:29 PM
well, putting up a border fence would make us just like east germany.

What a fool. There will have to be at least a few so called tea party candidates who teach next round's candidates what not to do.

Chris Gueffroy died in February, 1989 while trying to flee across the Berlin Wall. He was the last East German citizen to fall victim to the state's policy of shooting escapees in the divided city.

The young barman, who wanted to avoid his approaching military service, decided to try to escape after hearing from a border guard that the shoot-to-kill order had been revoked. Gueffroy and a friend set out to cross the border in the Treptow district of East Berlin. After getting through the first sets of barriers without any problems, the pair were spotted by guards. Gueffroy was hit by 10 bullets and died shortly afterward. His friend was seriously injured and seized by the guards.

East Germany's ex-leaders always denied they had ordered soldiers to shoot people trying to flee across the Berlin Wall. However, documents which surfaced in 2007 proved without doubt that such an order did exist. "Don't hesitate to use your weapon even when border breaches happen with women and children, which traitors have often exploited in the past," reads an order dated Oct. 1, 1973.

The August 13 Working Group, a private initiative, puts the death toll at over 1,200.

To bad he had some promise.

I read those documents a long time ago . It was like 100 or something ?

This guy has connections with The Tea Party Express.

He smells fishy.

They have a lot of illegal immigrants from south of the border in Alaska?

Just saying. I really don't think it's wise for him to risk blowing his campaign over an issue that is a matter of whether or not people along the southern border want a fence or not.

Why didn't he just say: If Eisenhower could do it, we could do it? :rolleyes:

Here's a winning campaign strategy for Tea Party candidates:

Does Joe realize that East Germany didn't secure their border and many many thousands got across through underground tunnels and other such measures? In that totalitarian shit-hole with much smaller area than the US they couldn't stop people from crossing the border. This is just insane border stazi bullshit.

It would be depressing if Joe Miller loses :(
