    Have you ever watched a movie where there is a crack in the dam and that crack just gets bigger and bigger and bigger until the dam cracks wide open and no one can stop it?
    This is what started back in 1492 when Columbus "discovered" the new world. That was the crack that broke the backs of all Native Americans. And now that the conquerors have no where else to run, their only choice is to try to repel the water (immigrants) that keep widening the crack of solidarity. Fear is the greatest weapon they have. It works for the war machine's fodder - on BOTH sides!
    Trump is right about curbing terrorism and stopping immigration, but it is by far - TOO LITTLE AND TOO LATE!
    The conquerors of the Americas are still too greedy and too corrupt to stop the inevitable bursting of the dam.
    Trump wants to build a NEW dam! The wall around America. Well, I hate to burst the bubble, but nobody in the history of the world has ever been able to stop the "terrorists/immigrants" with walls.
    They are too greedy. The ruling class actually wants the immigrants skills, labor, and money. They keep hiring cheap labor to increase their obscene profits, and all they ever give back is oppression. So, the revolution is coming, but Trump is going to be crushed along with all of the others. Even his Trump tower will fall.
    All I can add is to be careful what you wish for. You might just get it.

      Apparently, it's like Malcolm X said about President Kennedy's shooting; the chickens have come home to roost. However, what if they roost on YOUR chimney? That's what makes me nervous...

      About all you can do at this point is vote to end the wars in the middle east. If we keep bombing them, they are going to keep retaliating. But when have we ever learned anything from history?

      Exactly. I wonder why people keep thinking that a wall would do anything to stem the tide of illegals? It never has and it never will.

    The San Bernadino shooters were proof our vetting process for immigrants failed. The wife was liking ISIS online before the killings, and we didn't notice.
    And the same is true for all the Somali immigrants we let in from the 1990s to today who have teen to twenty something sons going back overseas to join Jihadi groups.

    Is there any other pres candidate that is talking about how to protect the US from Terrorists?
    Aliens need to go through the immigration process, and they should be vetted for terrorism, disease, and all the other vetting.
    Since 911 the gov has spent $1.5 trillion dollars and that doesn't include a border wall. The border wall would save us more than it will cost us. Less illegals to take care, and there are the extra costs they incur. Medical, Education, crimes, welfare, not paying taxes, sending billions of what they do earn here back to Mexico, some even vote in our elections, but we don't know because we are not allowed to ask, or even require a photo id.

    on 911, the US Gov totally failed the country and the people. Among many reasons why that occurred was the reasoning that we didn't need this or that, and the terrorists wouldn't be able to do this or that.

    Well, the terrorists from a third world country outsmarted the most powerful country then in the world.

    It took us 20 years to get Osama Bin Laden. They were trying to find him way before 911.

    So to all those opponents of Trump on the Muslims, and the Wall, who are you gonna call when they blow up your doors.?

    Letting the Muslims into the country without knowing the good from the terrorists is supporting the terrorists. And their seems to be terrorist sympathizers in the US. Not securing our Southern Border is dangerous.
    It won't stop all of them, but neither does the TSA at the airports. So should we use the same rationale and stop the TSA from doing their job?

    The end....

      We might just try giving them less reasons to hate us? We are bombing the crap out of their homeland. What do you expect them to do? They will blow up your wall to retaliate. Think before you speak!

      Islam spread from Mecca to Arabia in several years, North Africa and Iraq in 40 years - murdering Christians and pagans alike. It only stalled by Charles Martel. Islam was a violent conquering faith well before the West was the dominant culture

      So, what is your point? America was decimated by Christian immigrants. And the middle east was re-conquered by the Crusades. They've been fighting for thousands of years! How is this working out for everyone? Try something new? Like peace.

      I can't believe the things that you say, and believe you are from Texas. The two just don't go together. I am not a fan of terrorist sympathizers.Terrorist victims deserve more sympathy.

      Austinstarposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      I have plenty of sympathy for terrorist victims. You, on the other hand, seem to want to encourage MORE death and destruction over trying to find a solution to violence and prevent future victims. Kill or be killed! Wow.

    You see the kid crying. So you spank him because he gets on your nerves. Then he throws his toys around, and you send him to his room. Then he breaks something, and you give him another spanking.

    Well, how about finding out what's bothering that kid rather than saying that the kid is "evil and obviously hates you"?

    Since 911 some half million people have been blasted in the Middle East. Why? Didn't we go there to find and disable some "weapons of mass destruction" and then come home? We could not disable them, for the simple reason that there were none. But we are still there. So, except for mindless killing and getting killed, what are we still doing there? The next excuse was about "establishing democracy in that region".  What democracy? After more than dozen years of killing, can anyone see democracy there?

    For a dozen of years we were killing and traumatizing those folks without a clear cause, and we don't call that terrorism. Then they blast something in a western country and we call them terrorists, AND WE HATE THEM WITH PASSION BECAUSE THEY HAD A NERVE TO DO A MINIATURE OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING FOR YEARS.

    You want to call me a "terrorist sympathizer"? Go ahead, if your conscience allows you. I  AM NOT A SYMPATHIZER OF ANY KILLING.

    I simply don't see the big solution in bombing innocent folks and then nonchalantly call it "casualties of war", or "collateral damage". Damn it, if we call ourselves a Christian society, why not act Christian and "not do to others what you don't want others do to you".

      Ah, the sweet sound of logic and intelligence! I'm so tired of cave man responses to terrorism. When will these people grow up?

      You are a Terrorist Sympathizer, and you really think that we are like them.Terrorists directly target civilians, they chop of their heads, they bomb them, they kidnap them. You didn't answer the ? you just ranted. Their battle is religion

      Bradmaster  -  Put  better eyeglasses on and read again before you write nonsense  -  I am a sympathizer of half million innocent people killed in the Middle East, not ANY killers. Are you a sympathizer of western soldiers who killed them?

      Brad - Your philosophy is Kill them! Do you not realize that the reason they are terrorists is BECAUSE we are killing them first? We have spent BILLIONS of dollars killing them. How's that working out for us?

      The reasons that there are these terrorists is because Mohammad didn't pick a successor. They have been killing each other long before they killed us. What is wrong with Trump's plan, and which candidate has a better plan.

      Trump doesn't have a viable plan. He is lying to you. His idea of foreign policy is talking to himself! Cause, he has a brain. He doesn't present a real plan, he's just mouthing off about killing Muslims and their families and torturing everyone.

      bradmasterOCcalposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Don't give me your opinion, give me facts why you say these things. Trump wants to wait on bringing Muslims into the country, because we can't tell the good from the terrorists. He wants to build the wall on S border. Mexico has one on their s border

      Austinstarposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Trump said what he said, and that is a fact. He said he consults himself on foreign policy. Keep on believing in him, it's your vote. I don't care what you do with your vote. You obviously already have your mind made up.

      Muslims are beheading buddhist teachers in Thailand, blowing up buses in China, beating and killing Christians in Indonesia - that's not part of the West's involvement in the Middle East and all with Islam's mandate to conquer & convert the world

      Tamara - You want to talk about "spreading influence"? What exactly did Vietnam do to the West? Most Americans didn't know it existed. We call our bullying "matters of national interest", which justifies our presence anywhere we choose.

    Is is obvious that it is not or this wouldn't be happening:

    " ... prominent Republicans who signed a scathing open letter denouncing Trump that declared that Trump is unfit to be president because his views of American power are “wildly inconsistent and unmoored in principle ...  He is a caricature of classless wealth. ... He is a caricature of the ugly American ... amoral, a fraud and a dangerous demagogue."
