What do you think about the MinuteMen?
I am conservative, and I think they are nuts. So, are they some radical socialist nut-job group? Racist paramilitary extremist groups are not my idea of patriots. There is a real war going on, and we are distracted from the trully evil people out there, like Al-Quaida. If you don't like people that work to live off the system, cut off our poor and shiftless. I could care less if Pedro wants to go pick lettuce for you West Coast traitors. At least the man has a real job, and is benificial to society, not some loser getting stoned in his moms basement, typing hatred messages on the internet. Oh yeah, Here in Buffalo, our illegal aliens are white Canadians. I havn't seen any chapters of minutemen spring up to protect the border that the terrorists use. Hey, these answers need more info! I still don't agree with youse guys yet.

I'm a conservative also and I think it's too bad the minute men aren't a much larger force. It would be nice if all the rest of us would get up off our behinds and stand up for what is right... More

Not at all. I know one of them. They are very normal patriotic citizens of the united states. They actually help the immigrants they encounter. Bush, for wome unknown reason is for open borders. The Minute Men are taking it in their hands to do the governments job. All non-violently and with good intentions. Are you... More

Divide and conquer -- the elites in Washington have influenced the Minutemen into "defending" our border against the people who should be the Minutemen's natural allies. If the Minutemen were wise and really wanted to defend the country, they'd get involved in the global economy so that people in other countries wouldn... More

They are just people trying to keep trespasser off their land. Where is the conservationist outrage when desert ecosystems are being destroyed by groups of illegals trampling plants and leaving litter. Would they protest it the illegals were trampling ANWAR? No
Answered By: Luchador - 7/4/2006
The current Minute Men are neither "socialists" nor "nut-jobs." They are US citizens trying to help keep illegals from flowing into our country. Maybe you are a conservative, maybe not, but they are only acting on what many of us are thinking - stop illegal immigration; the tax payers cannot afford it. Visit: http://... More

I think I would have a lot more respect for them if they were there 24/7 but a large majority of them are weekend warriors who are playing pretend commando to make themselves feel good. They go out there and make a difference.....8 hours a weekend( and when it doesn't conflict with a paintball match ). Also I think... More

I just think it's sad that these people have to take time out of their lives to do a job the government should be doing.

As Americans, we agree to a contract with our government, we vote, pay taxes, and don't go out and patrol for criminals (vigilantism) and in return our government is supposed to protect us. As far as I can tell the government has not fulfilled its part of the contract so groups such as the Minutemen are now rightfully... More
