Adolph Trump has now proposed a total ban on allowing Muslims into the United States, and that includes American citizens trying to return from overseas (including members of our military who are Muslim). What is it about the Constitution of which this guy either is ignorant or willing to ignore. He already wants to keep Hispanics out. Who's next? Jews? Chinese? Will he advocate sending all African-Americans back to Africa?
To understand the narcissism of this egomaniacally dangerous man, all you have to do is review the speeches of Hitler in the 1930's. Nationalism, xenophobia, feelings of persecution, scapegoating ethnicities, the registration of ethnicities he finds objectionable, religious tests for citizenship and the desire to militarily dominate the world. Will we require loyalty oaths to him before you can vote?
Rise up America. See Trump for what he is, and what he will be. The entire Republican field, with the exception of Kasich and Bush, are weak sisters and fear mongers. Never has our Republic been under assault like this. It is not the enemy from without, but the enemy from within, we should fear.
As Cicero said in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (and more appropriately applied here as a quote being used by Edward R. Morrow in his famous broadcast attacking Sen. Joe McCarthy), "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves."
