GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump believes that the war on terror
will require unprecedented surveillance of America’s Muslims.

“We’re going to have to do thing that we never did before,” he said during a
Yahoo interview.

Trump would not rule out warrantless searches in his plans for increased
surveillance of the nation’s Muslims, Yahoo reported Thursday

He also remained open toward registering U.S. Muslims in a database or giving
them special identification identifying their faith, the news outlet added.

Trump then said that the U.S. would have “absolutely no choice” besides
shutting down mosques when “some bad things happen.”
Trump won't rule out database, special ID for Muslims in US | TheHill

Are you honestly telling me, that this CLOWN, is leading the Conservative movement? THIS guy is leading the polls of the Republican party, the party that's supposed to be all about small government, religious liberty, and Constitutional values? SERIOUSLY?

Can't you see that he's merely just playing you all for FOOLS!?!?!? He is literally playing to the lowest common denominator, and saying whatever he thinks will get him support from that very demographic.

My fellow Republicans, we have to come together and oust this poser! WE HAVE TO!!!!

I imagine that every genocide, every atrocity that has ever taken place at the hands of government throughout human history, started with the utterance of Hitler-esque words exactly like those of our current frontrunner, in the midst of fear and in the name of "safety"....

Shame.

WS88 - I am pleased to see a Republican sees the truth of The Donald. He is a bankrupt real estate salesman and a political demagogue that is spouting racist nationalism to anyone that will listen.

You're saying things that we already know...

Why don't you comment on his proposed witch hunt against an entire class of people over their religious affiliations, or his proposed assault on both 1st and 4th Amendment Constitutional rights?

Or doesn't that kind of thing bother you?

I've always thought that if Trump is the best the Republican party can come up with then the Republican Party needs to seriously reevaluate themselves and what they stand for. And I say this as a card carrying Republican. It's embarrassing. I might have to jump ship.

He's right.
I think it's lousy that we have to consider this, but in the interest of the safety of the American people I believe it is necessary.
I know the argument against it and why it would be an effed up thing to do.
We are not fighting a conventional enemy in a conventional war.

So your solution is to curtail religious freedom and throw aside the right to a warranted search where due process is afforded?

Please don't call yourself a Conservative, you're anything but....

The founders drafted the Constitution to protect the minority from the whims of the majority and mob rule, which is what you are advocating.
