I’ve finally reached a point where I feel the need to weigh in on the “Trumpster” – he’s hurting the Republican Primary race and needs to go away or Hilary Clinton is going to win the White House. Sure he says things that might be entertaining or feel like “the truth”, but in reality he simply knows his audience and is playing to them. He’s not a true conservative or constitutional candidate in fact I’ve argued from the moment he entered the race he was actually a liberal at heart.
He supported abortion, an assault weapons ban, longer waiting periods, higher taxes for the wealthy, Hillary Clinton, and universal healthcare! All of a sudden he’s been ‘converted’? No, he sees an opportunity to put a notch in his belt by becoming POTUS. Now lets talk Muslims and Terrorism.
Lets start with the following
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (source)
Now lets look at this knee jerk reaction
Trump’s plan, which was released Tuesday, calls for a “total and complete shutdown” of all Muslims entering the country in response to the recent terror attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., and Paris. (source)
Trump seems to have pulled back his comments a little by clarifying “citizens” would be allowed back in – BUT that might not have prevented the husband in California from being radicalized. Either way his attitude and statements are ridiculous. I’m also not sure I’m convinced we should limit Syrian refugees from entering the United States of America either, for a copule fundamental reasons.
- As a nation we should not let fear win over honor and compassion – it’s not who we are or what to be!
- It’s contrary to the 2nd amendment argument we use stating “criminals are going to get guns no mater what laws you add to the books”. Those who want to inflict pain, death, suffering, and fear on our great nation are going to do so regardless of whether we let refugees in or not. (reason below).
