    At the convention Michelle said "America has always been great". Eight years ago she said she had been proud of America for the very first time in her life. I like how Trump has the Obamas and the DNC back on their heels. They all had to bring him up in an effort to distort the truth of what he says, but I think the majority of the American people see what is happening with the Dems now. Polls are climbing up for Trump the more the radicals try to push back against the reality of the state of the Union.

    Don't bet on it. The "majority" of voters put Obama in office for a second term, even with the evidence of his incompetence right in front of them.

    About 40 % will vote for anyone or anything that has a "D" by their name on the ballot. Criminals, serial killers,traitors, they just don't care.

    I must say I was shocked when the voters gave Obama a second term. It was puzzling. Of course the RNC kept pushing moderates...no wonder.

    40% automatically vote for Democrats for handouts.

    Most of the media has a strong pro-Democrat bias.

    Republicans keep giving voters candidates that no one can love (mostly because of Evangelical Islamophobia).

    Evangelical Islamophobia results in the desire to have candidates that will commit to endless war against Muslims (who are practically non-threat to our freedom and safety), even if it means surrendering America to domestic enemies.

    In the last Republican primaries, Ted Cruz was their top pick. In every major speech, Ted Cruz declares his commitment for war against Muslims (in their land), either in coded language or not-so-coded carpet bombing language.

    This is not accurate. The majority of those who voted in that election did that. Fact Conservatives stayed home because they felt there was no one to vote for.

    Seems to me that Jesus made a statement about loving our enemies. We might not be hated so much if we practices that.

    Who are these domestic enemies?

    Of course you have data showing that evangelicals that want a war with Muslims backed Cruz. Let's see it.

    He sure did! Now explain for us what that means. Give real life scenarios and how we are to react to them. An example would be a man is threatening to rape your wife or daughter and he tells you to just sit there and behave. Do you just sit there and tell him how much you love him, or would you fight him?

    Are you suggesting that Christ was not addressing real life situations and real life enemies?

    I am suggesting that He is! So how would you apply the scripture to the situation I presented?

    If you think there is no Islamic threat toward America, you better wake up quick. America does live in a protective bubble. What's happening in Europe will be an everyday thing in the USA if things are not turned around --ASAP.

    The Islamic enemies need to be captured and killed.

    It is a hypothetical question and there are not enough facts to make a decision. How a person reacts depends on so many factors that are completely unanticipated.

    Has the history taught you nothing. Revenge begats revenge which begats revenge with begats revenge. Many mid-eastern cultures are build are the requirement of revenge. What has it accomplished other than 1300 years of violence through revenge?

    I guess you believe Jesus was wrong in his statement. Right?
