So... Basically it's not ok to stop people from entering the country based on religious affiliation. Make it about geography. Say people from certain countries can't enter the U.S., but you can't sit there and throw away one of the VERY THINGS we founded our country on, Religious Freedom.
I don't care if you don't like the religion of Islam. I don't either. That doesn't mean we start discriminating against religion. And before people go off half-cocked telling me that "they're already persecuting Christians, blah, blah!" This country is still the best place in the world to be a Christian despite what you think about how "persecuted" you are. Try living in the middle-east.
How would we even enforce that? Are you gonna demand they eat a ham sandwich to prove they are not Muslim? People will just lie and get into the country anyway.
The United States of America was founded, in part, for religious freedom; the right to worship as you choose. When you make idiotic statements like "We need to ban Muslims from entering the country!" You are opening yourself up to laws based on religious affiliation. That is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
The same people screaming "Guns don't kill people, people do!" Need to stop screaming "Ban the Muslims! They kill people!"
No, the psychotic ones do. The problem isn't Muslims. No IT ISN'T. The problem is ISLAMIC EXTREMISM. TERRORISM. If all Muslims were killers we'd have a real problem on our hands considering the number of Muslims living in this country already.
Hating or fearing people based on their religion is as stupid as blaming guns for mass shootings. In fact, there was another country that demanded a certain religious group wear IDs, and wanted them removed from the country. It was called Germany and it's leader was Hitler.
Donald Trump runs his mouth loudly and people love it because "he doesn't fear the media, blah, blah..." You people need to stop gushing over the guy and PAY ATTENTION to the words coming out of his mouth.
He want's to ban a group of people based on religion (who would just lie and get into the country anyway,) and just the other day, he was talking about censoring parts of the internet, via "guys like Bill Gates shutting down parts of the internet." Next thing you know, he'd be censoring people offline in the U.S. Mark my words. This guy is dangerous, but some of you won't even read this post in it's entirety and will knee-jerk react by claiming I'm a liberal.
No, I'm definitely not a liberal, and I personally, Trey Motes, wrote this. I did not copy and paste it from elsewhere.
Donald Trump is dangerous. Stop gushing over him and LOOK at him. Use your brain, not your desire to "stick it to the media/establishment." If you wanted to do that anyway, Cruz fits the bill nicely without sneakily trampling the constitution.
