30. Why stop there?
Promise to put up guard towers every 100 feet, privatized, of course, and give those guards permission to shoot to kill anyone in between those two fences.

It's not big government because it's privatized.

It will stimulate the economy given the number of personnel required for staffing. This will be a further benefit to companies like the one reported on last week on the Mother Jones site providing temporary housing to oil field workers in North Dakota. I'm sure there's republican cronyism in there, so you've also got those bases covered.

And since the dead bodies will be on American soil, you have a growth industry for funeral directors, who will be shipping bodies back to Mexico.

Think of the uniforms, weapons, etc.

You know full well that this proposal would be greeted with cheers at the next republican debate (the 74th?), and those people will mean it.
