Thomas L. Knapp writes at Kn@ppster:
I have to admit, Donald Trump is making me re-think the whole “deportation” issue.
In fact, I’m leaning toward the idea that all Trump supporters should be deported to North Korea where things will be more to their liking.
But I’m also kind of Romneyish on it. I’m cool with “self-deportation.”
Mr. Knapp is currently running as a write-in candidate for US House FL-3. Since he is a write-in candidate, there is no official party label, but his campaign materials identify him as a Libertarian. That’s also the party he ran for office with several times when he lived in Missouri. Knapp started the now defunct Boston Tea Party (not to be confused with the Greater Boston TEA Party, which came along later) and was its VP nominee in 2008. Subsequently he led an anti-voting campaign before rejoining the Libertarian Party. He is also one of the writer/editors and frequent commenters at IPR, among many other places he writes at.
Mr. Trump is currently the candidate leading in the polls for the Republican nomination for President, but continues to float the possibility that he may switch to run as an independent for the same office if he concludes that Republican Party leaders don’t treat his campaign fairly. Trump briefly sought the Reform Party Presidential nomination in 2000 and has been registered to vote as a Democrat, Republican and Independent. His top campaign issue is rounding up and deporting an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants and building a massive wall on the US-Mexico border, which he believes will make America great again. In the most recent Republican Presidential debate, Mr. Trump looked back with fondness to the Eisenhower administration’s Operation Wetback, although he did not call it by name.
Mr. Kim became North Korea’s Supreme Leader on December 29, 2011. He is the son and grandson of the last two supreme leaders of North Korea. The Kim Dynasty, so far consisting of Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-Il and Kim Jong-Un, has controlled North Korea for the last 70 years through a Top One electoral system. North Korea has a heavily armed southern border and a very strict and heavily enforced policy regarding unauthorized border crossing. Other well-known examples of border fortification include the Berlin Wall, the Great Wall of China and the French Maginot Line.
