    Tea Party Candidate: Let's secure our borders east german style!

    The United States should borrow ideas from Communist East Germany to keep its borders secure, Alaska's Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller suggested at a town hall Sunday night.

    "The first thing that has to be done is secure the border," Miller said when asked about illegal immigration into the United States, Alaskan blogger Steve Aufrecht first reported.

    Miller continued, "East Germany was very, very able to reduce the flow. Now, obviously, other things were involved. We have the capacity to, as a great nation, secure the border. If East Germany could, we could."

    The Tea Party-backed candidate, who is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, explained that he once served at the Fulda Gap, a point on the former East-West German border. East Germany's border troops were given orders to shoot anyone trying to flee East Germany.

    Following the same town hall meeting, a reporter for the Alaska Dispatch was handcuffed and detained by private security guards working for Miller while trying to ask Miller a question.

    Battered and weary after the craziness of the 1960s, the self-righteousness of the 1970s and the greed of the 1980s, I want to go home again, oh, so desperately - home to that land of drive-in restaurants and Chevy Bel-Airs, making out and rock 'n' roll and drag races and Studebakers, Elvis and James Dean and black leather jackets. Not that I ever owned a black leather jacket.

    Alaska has a problem with illegal immigration? Couldn't they just use radar or so to spot the russians coming or is this about the canadians?

          I don't think that's a good way to motivate people.

              Now where do you start on this one ...

              If you compare the wall to something and want to take something away from it in a sense of "learning from it" ... you might want to think more in terms of a Prison with 16 Million Inmates. Wanna imprison your own country? East germany is what you want to take as your model. Or maybe North Korea (24 Million Inmates). Border security or immigration wise you might want to look somewhere else ...

                    Not really, they are just part of the NeoCon nut jobs. Ron Paul was gaining traction with his movement, so the NeoCons jumped in and took it over.

                            Yes, I could see how Alaska would have a problem with people fleeing to Canada, both for health care and to flee morons like mr. Miller. However, against the Russians, they don't even need a radar. They just need to set up watch from Palin's tanning bed.

                            Let's just hope this man with the brain of a baboon does not get a position of power. In -any- way.

                            I'm willing to BET mr. Miller compared the health reform to the Soviet Union. BET!

                              True the Russians won't be such a problem, but you forgot all those Canadians who want cheaper booze.

                                  I think that you are not allowed to import meds to the US.

                                      I have often wondered why are your meds soooo expensive. I can get anything I need for a 10 GBP per prescription, thank you NHS. Many people on long term meds or on limited means it is free.

                                        Because they can get away with charging those prices. Does the U.K. have the same patent law as the U.S. in regards of pharmaceuticals?
