Trump adds Terrorism to GOP's Misery Agenda for US.

The Republican agenda is an odd attempt to make life more miserable. For instance:
Guns; Arming citizens didn't make society any safer, as they promised. Families are terrified to be around armed strangers...big surprise. When schools became a preferred target for mass shootings, that should have been a big red flag, but wasn't.

Anti-labor/Bust unions/Right to work: Working families are now in a constant state of uncertainty about their jobs, their declining wages and lack of benefits.

Against Health Care for Everyone: Americans will once again fear getting sick or injured, knowing they could go bankrupt or get turned down for coverage.

Anti-Science/anti-environment: We're no longer sure about the water we drink, the food we eat or air we breathe, because we have to balance safety with business interests.

Education: Parents will have to deal with K-12 savings accounts and skyrocketing tuition's because public funding took a big hit. It's the free market baby, guided by profits, where students are described as "commodities," and religious instruction is paid for by taxpayers.
It's a nerve racking list Americans will have to deal with, along with their own ever mounting personal problems.

Let's add Terrorism to our daily fears: We were once pretty well insulated from the worlds terrorist organizations, do in part to geography but also because we were a melting pot for immigrants seeking a new and better life. Our Constitution treats everyone as equals and protects their rights. Not anymore.

It matters what presidents say, even top candidates running for president like Donald Trump, who's ill advised statements may have set in motion a dangerous cycle of terror attacks at home:

Al Shabaab terror group uses Trump clip in propaganda film: analysts: Somalia-based Islamist militant group al Shabaab has released a recruitment film in the form of a documentary about racial injustice in the United States featuring Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, SITE Monitoring reported Saturday.

Trump … was shown in the 51-minute film making his December call for the United States to bar all Muslims from the country as his supporters cheered. It was shown between two clips of militant leader Anwar al-Awlaki, killed in a drone strike in Yemen in 2011, saying Muslims in the United States would face a choice between leaving for Islamic countries or staying at home to fight the West.

I was going to leave a long response trying to insert some common sense into your post while debunking your idiotic claims, but instead I'll just leave you with this food for thought...
