Point well taken, but not all terrorists are middle eastern in appearance either.

I do not believe our founding fathers were liberals.

Some people, I won't mention names here, would just love to see our constitutional rights circumvented for their own reasons.

Terrorists come in many shapes, sizes, colours, ethnicity, and genders.

Female Terrorism (http://www.apsu.edu/oconnort/3400/3400lect03a.htm - broken link)

Our Goverment already racially profiles everyone, if they do not, why is it when official Government forms are filled out, your ethnicity is asked? That is profiling.

My goodness. Our founding fathers certainly were not liberal, nor stupid, so I would think that they would completely agree with profiling. Little old ladies in wheelchairs do not committ acts of terrorism- young Arab males do.

To blind one's self to such ridiculously obvious observations is due to the disease of liberalism- one is so dull witted by political correctness that proper action can no longer be taken. Rationality takes a vacation with liberals, as Hombre so clearly illustrates.

This poll just proves my point, that most, if not all conservative Republicans are racist. Look at the names above, and it is more than obvious. Anyone who voted yes is racist, and they are all REPUBLICANS!

Actually, you are mistaken on both points:

They are not "racist"

Nor, are they all "republicans"

Is it time that this nation does what other countries around the world are doing - profiling those boarding various methods of transportation?

It is perhaps distasteful to discuss but, it is quickly coming, IMO.

Your thoughts?
They will catch on and start recruiting people that look like this.

Why stop there. Did you see the white guy with the gun obsession that went into his plant and killed all those people. I think white christian republicans that own more than one gun should be evaluated from time to time, maybe once a quarter, to ensure they are caught before they go on terrorist murdering sprees.Law enforcement should keep up with how much ammo they are buying and interview them from time to time to get a feel for when they are going to go on a shooting spree

If guys like you had your way every race in the world except yours would be in the firing line how many enemies do you want to create for yourself. I know you have never been profiled and think that its great because you want to be in the whites christians only express lane.

Hawkeye and sunnyday see nothing wrong with this guy. Even if he blew up a plane they would say he was crazy but lets not pay attention to what he looks like
