Civil forfeiture is, of course, not just at the border. I chuckle at whom they caught because of his political beliefs. I bet he would have voted in favor of civil forfeiture had it come up when he was in the legislature in order to punish crooks who get out of jail on a technicality, etc. Dollars to doughnuts he also backed AG Sessions' appointment.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Yeah, believing in civil liberties made him a wacko.
The way he stood up to the jackbooted Customs goons you probably would have lost that bet.....
