Haha, so, funny story…
Rand Paul says we should build an underground electric border fence to keep the Mexicans out.
Republican Senatorial candidate Rand Paul wants to build a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border. It’s a rather ho-hum proposition in the larger context of conservative ideas — except that Paul wants that fence to be electric and he wants it built underground.
“I have not heard that,” the Texas Republican said. “Underground? What would happen? How would that work?”
That’s actually a good question and one that Paul’s campaign won’t answer. His website says only the following: “My plans include an underground electric fence, with helicopter stations to respond quickly to breaches of the border.” The details of how it would be built, what it would take to make it work and how much it would cost are left unanswered.
Moreover, aides to the Kentucky Republican have refused repeated attempts to explain the idea to the Huffington Post. On June 14, Paul’s former spokesman and current campaign manager, Jesse Benton, said he would call the following day to provide further details. He never did.

Or watch this fancy video:
Isn’t it interesting that Rand opposes a physical border fence because it reminds him of the Berlin Wall? Disagreeing with nearly all conservatives, believing their solution is similar to the Soviet Union’s solution.
