The furor over Donald Trump's call for a National Registry of Muslims escalated today as Democrats hit back with a call for a different kind of National Registry -- this time, one for "Idiots."
Anyone who understands political math knows that The Donald will never win the Republican nomination, let alone the presidency. And no one knows this more than Trump himself. Which is why, after he's done teasing, manipulating and exploiting you, he will break your hearts and abandon you.
What's in a name? That which we call Islamic State, ISIS, ISIL or Daesh by any other name would be as evil. Radical extremism is the enemy, and those eager to fight it abroad must name and confront it here at home.
Mr. Paul asked the Florida Senator -- who is becoming the candidate of the GOP establishment -- "How is that conservative?" Senator Paul's question has relevance for many of the candidates in this race.
we need Trump to make it painfully obvious to everyone what the Republican Party truly stands for: classism, sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia and xenophobia. Trump really is just saying out loud what most Republicans are thinking and saying in private.
I am trying to understand Dr. Ben Carson's political appeal. I don't understand it. He has never said anything that would make me immediately say, "This man must be our next president." To be honest, I've never heard anyone say, "His policies line up with my thinking." He certainly isn't a compelling speaker, certainly not a charismatic man. So what is it?

Kasich's proposal is right on the money. We need to reinstitutionalize patriotism. We need to reincorporate our values. And if history is any indicator, we ought to do it sooner rather than later.

The fears and knee-jerk reactions that accompany them are understandable in the wake of the terrorist attack in Paris, but the cynical attempts by Republican politicians to gain political advantage by stoking those fears and reactions are reprehensible.
There have always been two voices competing for the soul of America: one has been welcoming and respectful of diversity, while the other has been intolerant and fearful of those who were different. The tension between them has defined our nation's history from its beginning.
If we let fear guide us, then we have already lost. The United States of America was not founded on the principles of fear and fright. Our ideals should not be to enclose ourselves, shutter mosques, reject Arabs and Muslims or let the world fend for itself.
On Election Day, we have a duty and an obligation to vote for our friends, brothers, sisters and DREAMers who cannot vote. We must give our community a voice. We must elect a president that will defend these immigration initiatives and enact immigration reform with a path to citizenship.
I'm disappointed in you, Governor Snyder, for your heartless and un-Christian actions, and for joining in with at least 25 other governors who've decided to block legal Syrian refugees from coming into their states. What you've done is anti-American. This is not who we are supposed to be.
