Their lives are ALREADY in danger. Being a bigot is meaningless to our enemies. Bigotry, defined and used by

Lindsey Graham, is in a politically correct fashion without regard to real issues. Who is the fool? One who wants

to keep borders opened for anyone who wants to flood in? One who wants to allow foreigners in so their governments

remain friendly to our faces while stabbing us in the back? When we are so stuffed to the gills and overrun with outsiders

that our own people suffer and DIE something needs to give.

The situation has gone too far under current leadership. How many more bombings on foreign and home soil are

we supposed to endure due to shortcomings in a policy set in place that protects, encourages and gives rights to

outsiders? And how many more of our own citizens are supposed to suffer while we accommodate immigrants?

Either show terrorists we mean business by aggressive search and destroy and stop looking like cowards and puppets..

or pull out and leave them to themselves. They'll always have someone to direct their anger towards, let them kill

each other. US is spread too thin, busy trying to be a mighty power worldwide. We should be the mightiest power

right here on our own ground. And if that means keeping terrorists or foreigners meant to spread terror out, so be it.

I wouldn't mind being called prejudiced at all in the name of self preservation. The great melting pot needed to be

overturned a long, long time ago. Our seemingly softhearted, underhanded government makes it easy for us to

be targeted.

What would any of you do or think if one of your family members were killed by terrorists? I'd want them hunted

down and annihilated. Not just the leader but as many mindless followers along with him as possible. They are over

at US bases hiding in caves like the monsters they are shooting at service members everyday. Driving bombs to

checkpoints and base entrances...you don't hear about that much today, but it's happening. People are dying over

there and for what? Service to a government that doesn't care about them? VA benefits and facilities are a joke and

our Commander in Chief has the gall to display heartfelt thankfulness faked in a speech he didn't even write. Just

keep manning those bases and die trying.

Keep the terrorists out, keep the illegal immigrants out, if that preserves our country, I'm for it. If allowed in and it

means scrutinizing Middle Eastern immigrants, they shouldn't be offended, they should be honored to enter a country

(when they clear) that holds the safety and future of its citizens dear to its heart and fights for their own protection

with all its might. We need 'Proud to be an American' to mean something again.

Amen

    Where do you get a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the US?  Are you nuts or just a liar?  BTW, under Reagan, lowering taxes did boost the economy.  Or is American history not your strong point?

    I was quoting Trump and what Bush and Graham remarked about it, Cheesehead.

    "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population ."

    "Where do you get a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the US?"

    If you don't believe quotes, here is the actual video. Bet you'll still pretend he never said it.

    "BTW, under Reagan, lowering taxes did boost the economy. Or is American history not your strong point? "

    I know enough history to know George H.W. (read my lips) Bush had to raise taxes right after Reagan left office. You're 0 for 2; have anything intelligent to say?

      Stack47, trump stated, "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. "

      but he has pulled back on that recently,  because he knows that he can't do that, plus he also knows that he needs the US muslim votes also.

      The republicans are really worried about trump, they are still pulling away from him.  Also, big donors are pulling away from him also, he does not have the money for attack ads for Hillary.

      Trump is not going to deport 11 million illegals, or build a wall that Mexico will pay for, not going to happen.  Lowering taxes for everyone is not realistic, how is he going to pay for that.

      The trade stuff that trump talked about is a waste of time.

      The only good thing that trump talked about was regulatory rules.

      As far as taking out Isis, that is still going to be long term,  they are not wearing isis uniforms with the words isis on it.  This is why it is so difficult to kill isis.

      But it was mostly all talk!

      "but he has pulled back on that recently "

      That's a must because he makes promises that are impossible to do. I saw a poll today where 14% of Utah voters will write in Romney's name and that was before Evan McMullin announced his candidacy.

      "As far as taking out Isis, that is still going to be long term,  they are not wearing isis uniforms with the words isis on it."

      It would be like taking on the Viet Cong and everybody but apparently Trump and knows how that turned out.

        Do you understand what "suicide bomber" means?

        And because of that, it's almost impossible to find accomplices. That being said, I agree something has to be done and if Trump, Bush, or Graham has the answer, why are they waiting to tell us?

        "We need 'Proud to be an American' to mean something again."

        The last time I looked most Americans are proud; weren't you proud when they played our National Anthem 5 times during the Olympics?

        Seriously with all the high ranking Republican defections, do you really believe Trump has a chance?

          Yes I do have something intelligent to say hillbilly.   Other than small minded people like you, who gives a rip what Trump said?  Hillary is a corrupt liar.  I guess, in your world, what people say off the cuff is worse than what people do huh?   Cut and paste all the BS you want.  The choice is clear.

            Hey genius...Trump already said he's not going to give ISIS any information.  What do you expect him to say that he hasn't already said?  You want him to tell the enemy everything we're going to do before we do it like obama does?  BTW, the father of the Orlando terrorist, Seddique Mateen, was spotted at a Hillary rally in Kissimmee, Florida.  You know, the guy who supports the taliban (a terrorist organization).  When asked why he was there, he stated his support for Hillary.  LOL!  Guess we know who's going to be tougher on the terrorists huh?

              I understand what suicide bomber means - An individual in most cases. I see where you're going with this.
              One suicide bomber, how do you find the affiliation when one acts alone? It's there.
              They were his/her support system for years.

              S/he was filled with hatred for Americans from an early age and brainwashed against the 'infidels'. Brain-
              washing is too strong word for some of them because what a lot of them believe is they have to take
              out as many of us as they can and it's a great honor to do so. They believe they're rewarded for what the
              religious among us believe: thou shalt not kill.

              The US knows far more than what they lead us to believe. They are capable of putting a real hurt on the
              groups that prime individuals and groups to do their dirty work. Various political reasons prevent them from
              acting on what they know. I'd like an answer to why things aren't being done too but suspect it's primarily
              due to weighing one bad outcome against the other and deciding which gives us the best footing.

              Pride in the idea of being an American is there but our country's leaders shame us on a lot of levels. I think
              the overall feeling Americans hold is that this country is great but the way its run is laughable. I don't feel
              the USA is what it once was or what it can be. I'm not happy about what goes on in America..its homeless,
              out of work, poor and disadvantaged. I'm comfortable on an individual level but want to be that and proud
              on a national one. Until we take care of our own first I can't agree with being proud of the National Anthem
              being played at an event, the New Colossus or anything at all that was once viewed as part of the definition
              of being a great country. Pride for me will be restored when our own citizens are placed first above other
              nations tired, poor and huddled masses. We have enough of our own and if anyone rejects the idea of
              replacing outsiders with 'insiders', they need to be deported.

                  "Trump already said he's not going to give ISIS any information. "

                  Trump has no valid information to give to ISIS, ISIL, or Trump U. students. Similar to the nothing you added to playing lottery games.

                  "BTW, the father of the Orlando terrorist, Seddique Mateen, was spotted at a Hillary rally in Kissimmee, Florida."

                  Besides the fact you gave no proof it actually happened, it's no different than somebody spotting him or John Hinckley's grandma at McDonalds.

                  "Guess we know who's going to be tougher on the terrorists huh? "

                  Looks like you missed where Mateen was killed by police. What exactly is Trump's plan on being tough on dead terrorist?

                            One suicide bomber, how do you find the affiliation when one acts alone? It's there.
                            They were his/her support system for years.

                            S/he was filled with hatred for Americans from an early age and brainwashed against the 'infidels'. Brain-
                            washing is too strong word for some of them because what a lot of them believe is they have to take
                            out as many of us as they can and it's a great honor to do so. They believe they're rewarded for what the
                            religious among us believe: thou shalt not kill.

                            The US knows far more than what they lead us to believe. They are capable of putting a real hurt on the
                            groups that prime individuals and groups to do their dirty work. Various political reasons prevent them from
                            acting on what they know. I'd like an answer to why things aren't being done too but suspect it's primarily
                            due to weighing one bad outcome against the other and deciding which gives us the best footing.

                            Pride in the idea of being an American is there but our country's leaders shame us on a lot of levels. I think
                            the overall feeling Americans hold is that this country is great but the way its run is laughable. I don't feel
                            the USA is what it once was or what it can be. I'm not happy about what goes on in America..its homeless,
                            out of work, poor and disadvantaged. I'm comfortable on an individual level but want to be that and proud
                            on a national one. Until we take care of our own first I can't agree with being proud of the National Anthem
                            being played at an event, the New Colossus or anything at all that was once viewed as part of the definition
                            of being a great country. Pride for me will be restored when our own citizens are placed first above other
                            nations tired, poor and huddled masses. We have enough of our own and if anyone rejects the idea of
                            replacing outsiders with 'insiders', they need to be deported.

                            "One suicide bomber, how do you find the affiliation when one acts alone? It's there.
                            They were his/her support system for years."

                            We'll probably never know for sure the money and support behind the 911 attacks, but Hussein, bin Laden, and Gaddafi won't be supporting any future attacks. The problem then was nobody in the U.S. thought terrorists could take over planes and then fly them into buildings. Six years earlier nobody thought someone would park a truck full of explosives near a federal building either. And who would have thought two brothers would place an explosives near the Boston Marathon finish line?

                            You obviously see a different American than I do and I believe the big difference is I"m willing to let future generations decide their America and not suggest they return to what we believe might be a better America.

                            "Pride for me will be restored when our own citizens are placed first above other
                            nations tired, poor and huddled masses. "

                            Watching a bunch of state legislators (mine included) wasting time on creating bathroom laws isn't exactly ground breaking legislation either. The problems you described existed for 40 years. If you can't find any reasons now to be proud of America, you'll probably never find any.

                              Sounds like a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

                              You called me a liar when I quoted Trump and obviously ignored the video link where Trump said it.

                              You don't even know what "the pot calling the kettle black" means and probably your reason for arguing facts and the juvenile name calling.
