BERLIN (Reuters) - Fourteen years and a trillion euros after reunification one in five Germans would like to see the barrier that split the country during the Cold War put back, a survey found Wednesday.

A poll by the Forsa institute found a quarter of western Germans wishing the 15 million east Germans were cut off again by the Berlin Wall, living in a different state, while 12 percent of eastern Germans wanted out of the united Germany.

Many westerners said they were disgruntled because they have had to foot the bill for reunification -- 24 percent said they had suffered financially as a result.

In the formerly communist east, which has twice the unemployment as in the west and where wages are still below western levels, one-third said they were no better off financially because of unification and the end of communism.

Fuck, take the liberals and democrats from the USA and put them back behind that wall.

My God, how short people's memories are. Yeah, putting that wall back up will just make ALL the nasty problems go right away, won't it.

Idiots!

Just goes to show what years of communist indoctrination will do to a people as a whole -- it will RUIN THEM. It will destroy the will to work hard for a reward. There is a reason that Ossis dont fare as well as their Western neighbors -- they were raised by a nanny state.

That kind of crap ruins you for life

I wish there was a "Mexico Wall". I'm tired of footing the bill for all the illegals.
